“She came up to me [at SAG Awards] and said — ‘When I was in New York City, and I was starting to act, I wasn’t booking a lot of stuff, and my mom and I were talking about going back to Kentucky and maybe trying again when I was older. But I was really determined to not give up on acting, and I saw you in a newspaper as a boy from Kentucky who was making it in Hollywood. And I took it to my mom, and I was like, ‘look, he can do this. I can do this, too.’ (He pauses, smiling at the memory). So she’s nominated for an Academy Award and she’s telling me that I inspired her to keep going. It really took me back.”—Josh Hutcherson about Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence.

Korra raced around the rink, twirling and spinning around like the talented ice skater she was. Around her, people of every age and size skated in the spacious rink of Republic City Park. Snow surrounded them all, cold nipping at their cheeks, but no one paid it any mind – they were all having too much fun, enraptured in their friends and families.

Summary: Korra has a crush on Mako and handles it all very childishly.
“Don’t give me that look,” Mako said as he attempted to drag her from bed. Korra groaned and let her body go limp, making Mako have to drag her. She hit the floor and she still refused to be moved.

Korra’s been thinking about this for awhile – and she’s come to the conclusion that she maybe – sorta – has a tiny crush on Mako. Okay – maybe it was big one.
Not that she’s never had crushes or been in a relationship with anyone before – There had been young white lotus sentry guards who had caught her eye over the years, but none of that had been really serious. Korra had just thought they were attractive and decided to do something about. It also didn’t hurt that them being smitten with her usually meant that a kiss or two could get her some time outside of that oppressing compound.
But those crushes never made her insides feel like they were tangled into a jumbled ball or caused her face to heat up at the slightest quirk of their lips. Or caused her anger to turn into another kind of tension entirely and made her want to throw them against a wall and kiss them until they begged.
