^Oh, yes. This.
(I’m going to answer this in a normal post, because my response is going to be kinda picture-heavy. =P)
Bolin is the only person other than Korra whom Naga has shown any sort of attachment to in the show.
What makes this especially interesting is when you read Naga’s nick.com bio.Korra is the only person ever to have tamed [a polar bear-dog].
Naga is very protective of Korra…
…and has learned how to use her strength to help Korra out of perilous situations.
I feel like it has to be significant that Naga treats Bolin like this. Korra told her to take care of Bolin for her, and Naga went above and beyond that. This isn’t just Naga following Korra’s commands. I truly believe that Naga cares about him.My headcanon about this is that during Korra and Bolin’s date, after seeing how happy they are together, Naga has been a Borra shipper. I mean, look at the expression on Naga’s face after the “You are one of a kind” line:To me, it’s kind of a “Yep, I approve” face.So, next season, I’d love to see Naga help push Borra along. Maybe something like the bottom half of this picture. Or maybe Korra will notice Naga’s preference for Bolin and take the hint. I don’t know. We’ll see.
Aw man I’d actually really love this. This would make my shipper heart sing. Romance comes second to the friendship development, but damn this is now my headcanon since Bolin and Naga are obviously bros. I would still want them to show their bro-ness (totes a word) next season too. <33
Also felt the need to make these since there’s a Makorra Naga ‘Just As Planned’ out there that I see used and have used before…
And a Naga approves one for reasons.
They ship it. It’s very clear they ship their human companions together. *BORRA GLASSES ON FOREVER*
