^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*
meanwhile in a dark corner of Narlook’s
“SO THEN SHE FFFFFOLLOWED PEMA’S ADVICE AND KISSHHHED HIM!” Naga slurred, holding on to her tequila shot. “KISHED HIM!”
Pabu slid a few poker coins in her direction, adjusting the cigarette in his mouth.
“Bolin was talking to me all day, poor chump. At least I got a decent meal out of it. Hey, can you stop drooling on the cards and—”
“I TRY SO HARD TO GET THEM TO COME TOGEDER NATRU-ALLY, DEN SHE COMES AND RUINS EVERYTHING I’VE DONE SHO FAR”
“DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG THEY SHLEPT ON ME?”
“SHEVEN HOURS OF THEM CUDDLING ON MY DAMN KIDNEYS”
“AND THEN SHE GOES AND SHWAPS SHPIT WITH HIM AND DESTROYS ALL MY DAMN WORK”
Pabu sighed and let out a small puff on smoke. He adjusted his bottom on the large bar stool seat and leaned his elbows on the table.
“I’m only wondering when the moped is gonna get her—
Asami’s moped crashed through the restaurant doors, scattering debris and sending many patrons screaming and running throughout the place. It’s engines growled threateningly.
“WHERE’S THE POLAR BEAR DOG?”
i don’t know wtf is going on here, BUT I LIKE IT.
THIS IS THE BEST FANFICTION I HAVE EVER READ IN MY ENTIRE LIFE
