YOU KNOW WHAT I JUST REALIZED
Korra’s mother is present on the island. Pemma is present on the island. But why is Asami the one preparing Korra for the ball? And if you look at it, you can infer that Asami dressed Korra herself. As in, Asami undressed Korra, and dressed her again for the ceremony.
Not in like a sexual way but in the same way couples do that for each other. That level of comfort in one’s own skin.
And when Asami brings Korra out, everyone acts like this is natural. Like it was perfectly normal that it was Asami who was taking care of Korra. Like it was an immediate assumption that it would be Asami taking care of Korra.
And look at Asami’s concern towards the end of the episode:
And even at the ceremony! Asami is standing with Korra’s parents, with Korra’s family. I get that technically, everyone’s family here, but that’s just straight up significant other shit right thur.
Which brings me to my conclusion.
KORRASAMI IS REAL. IT’S ALREADY REAL AND THEY’RE JUST NOT SHOWING US
Dowling Duncan and redesigning the American Dollar:
Why the size?
We have kept the width the same as the existing dollars. However we have changed the size of the note so that the one dollar is shorter and the 100 dollar is the longest. When stacked on top of each other it is easy to see how much money you have. It also makes it easier for the visually impaired to distinguish between notes.
Why a vertical format?
When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally. You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense.
Why different colors?
It’s one of the strongest ways graphically to distinguish one note from another.
Why these designs?
We wanted a concept behind the imagery so that the image directly relates to the value of each note. We also wanted the notes to be educational, not only for those living in America but visitors as well. Each note uses a black and white image depicting a particular aspect of American history and culture. They are then overprinted with informational graphics or a pattern relating to that particular image.
$1 – The first African American president
$5 – The five biggest native American tribes
$10 – The bill of rights, the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution
$20 – 20th Century America
$50 – The 50 States of America
$100 – The first 100 days of President Franklin Roosevelt. During this time he led the congress to pass more important legislations than most presidents pass in their entire term. This helped fight the economic crises at the time of the great depression. Ever since, every new president has been judged on how well they have done during the first 100 days of their term.
I get so annoyed with Americans who make fun of Canadian currency because it’s “Monopoly Money.” What? Our currency is multicoloured, see-through, holographic and almost indestructible! I guess that’s not as cool as being impossible to tell apart, wrinkly, bland and super easy to rip?
These designs are slick as hell, though.
Same with Malaysian money, very colourful and easy to distinguish (though, some new ones these days are way to close a colouring to other notes). When I was in the US, it took time for me to take out money from my wallet cos I can’t tell if I took a 5 or a 10 or a 1 until I have to look closely at the bills themselves. With Malaysian money? So easy, “How much? 50? Okay, hold on *looks for the bluish green coloured money still inside my wallet, found it, took it out* here you go”
Even the guy getting the money sees it and knows we took out the right money without inspecting it. It’s just more practical and easier that way.
