Inheritance by kathrynlayno Inheritance by kathrynlayno

So I thought about how they found out Aang was the Avatar by presenting him with a set of toys when he was very young and he chose the one that belonged to his previous lives… Korra’s the only Avatar that the next one will have a connection to. I didn’t have any toys in mind so I used the betrothal necklace from my previous comic. Also, imagined Asami joining the White Lotus when she was much older (after Korra passes) to help look for the next Avatar… and the result is this. xD

Gave the kid Heterochromia due to mixed heritage because why not…

There was a moment in the original avatar when Aang was found to be the next avatar because he chose an item that belong to one of the previous avatars. (Let's say the previous Avatar owned a small wooden box, and Aang chose that out of all the other items. It would show that he was the "New" Avatar.) The little boy here (An original character i'm guessing) is the "New" avatar after Korra's passing. The old Lady is Asami, Korra's wife.

No Korra didn't/hasn't died in the series, this is the distant future here where Asami is an old woman and Korra has already died.

in short, you didn't miss anything really. it's just an idea the author had that was really touching.

Aha, THIS is one of the top three faves in the Korrasami sphere. I admit I copied it to my drive from Facebook, had no idea who made it but I love looking back at it and feeling things all over again. This creation is just so beautiful. Have you given the boy any background? :D

  I decided that I need to finally post something.  This comic is so incredibly well done.  It  is both a happy moment (A new Earthbender Avatar is found.) and so incredibly sad ( Because in knowing that Korra is dead.) Poor Katara must have gone through these thoughts and feelings.  Sadly,  the childs smile (with the added Korra smile) and then Asami's gentle face just brings tears every time I see this strip.
  Your work here is mindblowing and you have a new fan here. 
 Thank you.
