Mako and Bolin enter the crime-ridden underworld of Republic City where you either hustle, or get hustled.
Republic City Hustle seems like it will be a series of webisodes dedicated to Mako and Bolin’s life on the streets before moving on to pro-bending.
Based on this first episode, it seems like the series will cover the time JUST before the brothers were recruited by Toza. Based on the lack of Pabu, Bolin is less than fourteen years old and Mako is less than sixteen in the first episode.
The brothers are seen with Shady Shin in episode 1, and their Triad job seems to be rigging and collecting bets on the outcome of a pro-bending match, with Toza on the pre-determined losing team.
The joint ‘robbery’ of the woman is cute, it shows that they don’t really WANT to steal, so they make their living by having Mako steal from people and hoping for the reward when Bolin ‘saves’ whatever Mako stole.
Seems like the story will follow Mako and Bolin’s foray into the pro-bending world, so we still may not get to see some of their earlier years, including what happened to their parents, how they ended up on the streets afterwards, or how they actually got into the Triads in the first place.
It seems confirmed that (as is characteristic of the Triple Threat Triad) Mako and Bolin’s third ‘team member’ was Shady Shin.
What is this feeling, so sudden and new—

What am I doing..
Needtostopdrawingfanart. And abusing color balance.
"K-KOOOORRRAAAA!" "GER’OFF ME!"
As Korra and Mako confess and reveal their feelings for one another, Bolin reflects on his relationship with his brother and his teammate. Being the best Polar-bear dog, Naga comes to offer him a little company.
I mostly just wanted to draw Bolin with his hair down (as his slicked back hair can be very..frustrating). Ah, uhm..enjoy!
Hehehehe— What am I doing.
"Whatever happens to me, don’t turn back."
I could go into a long rant about how much I adore this woman. Guh~ *Swoons*
The idea of this picture comes from her kicking Lt. Mustache’s ass when he comes near her (maybe to taunt), then running off to go and continue the good fight. We’ve already seen Asami kick butt without bending..So what about a bender using non-bending methods? (I’ve seen this done with Tahno a lot, too. It’d be nice to see him as well!)
(Also, side note; I don’t recommend wearing metal boots while using electric rods.. But hey, she’s LIN BEIFONG. PSH!)
