  • Is there anyway for Korra to reconnect to the Avatar Cycle once desrtoyed by Unalaq?

    • Nah

    • Eh, maybe Korra could reconnect with past Avatars through various items that relate to them in some way (i.e. the fire amulet that connected Aang to Roku).

      Though (and assuming it would even work in the first place) Korra would have to come into possession of a hell of a lot of those types of items to reconnect with all her past lives.

      I want to believe in the restoration of the Avatar connection to the past lives very much.

    • Had a fan-fic idea where Korra or a post-Korra avatar finds a spirit that records all memories, and can easily repair the Avatar's past lives. Unfortunately the spirit believes that the Avatar should earn this right, sending her/him on an arduous series of tasks to prove their worth. The spirit would probably be called Yama.

    • The alternative I came up with for my own writing was that Vaatu's been living inside the spirit of Raava and has been blocking Korra from those lives (I mean, she can still multi-bend, which Raava got back in the day and which shouldn't have been passed down when she "died"). Exorcise Vaatu, and you return the past lives.

      Maybe she could find a few items, one for each element. Or maybe she just needs an item from the avatar before her, Aang, which will restore her connection to her past lives like how Aang restored his connection by recrafting the fire bead in the Rift Trilogy.

      That or she could find Wan's teapot or something (going all the way back to the beginning to jump start the entire line or something) and do that. Time to talk to Iroh in the spirit world lol. I don't know, mostly joking here really

    • I think that could be possible by meditating in the Tree Of Time?

    • The way I interpreted what I saw watching the show is that an Avatar Cycle ended when Raava was torn out of Korra by Unalaq/Vaatu, hence the loss of the past lives.

      When the two reconnected, a new, separate Avatar Cycle began - so as Wan, in his day, had no past lives to rely on, Korra, who is now the First Avatar of a second Avatar Cycle, no longer has the memories of the Avatars from the previous cycle to rely on - not that she ever did in any meaningful way, which is why I question the idea that the past lives are even necessary.

      Heck, even Aang didn't rely on any of the past lives much except Roku and Yangchen(He consulted a couple of the others, such as Kyoshi, maybe once or twice), and he didn't always take their advice even when he did.

    • They've pretty much always been a useful resource to have, but not exactly earth-shatteringly important. But they do help distinguish the Avatar from Captain Planet.

      What do you mean? Are you talking about the fire temple, that was burnt down by Roku.

    • The only "amulet" I can think of he might be referring to is the necklace Aang used in the comics - I can't seem to find a good pic of it, but it looked a lot like the one Gyatso used to wear, except it had four circular "pendants" - one for each element.

      In The Promise, he uses it as a spiritual focus to communicate with Roku, until he breaks it - and has to repair it in The Rift in order to be able to communicate more effectively with Yangchen.

      Problem I have with that theory though, is that with Aang, the connection is basically still there - He uses the necklace as a focus for his meditation to make it easier to communicate with, for instance, Roku and Yangchen, but they are already connected. 

      In the case of Korra, there is no connection at all anymore, so amulet or not, she can't communicate with the past Avatars because there's no connection at all to use to establish contact.

    • Coming from someone who has a buttload of ideas for a new series about an Avatar after Korra (and plans on writing it when I can), here's what I think could happen:

      When Raava is reborn inside someone, making them the Avatar, their spirits should gain a kind of speicial connection. A connection that makes their own inner spirit a part of Raava and the light of the world itself. So in other words, that is a connection to Raava herself and should never be able to be taken away. So when Vaatu destroyed her, he didnt actually sever the entire connection itself as again, its still a part of Raava's very being and when she revives the connection revives as well. What Vaatu actually severed was the ability to sense the connection, making it look like the Avatar is no longer connected to the past lives without them being able to perceive such a thing. By no longer sensing it, it goes beyond their own comprehension. And if you don't have strong natural spiritual awareness and power, you will never be able to regain the ability to sense it. It makes sense for Korra since, unlike Aang and Unalaq, Korra has always lacked in spiritual arts. Its like Unalaq said, she can hardly recognize her spiritual abilities (not that it's a bad thing, Korra's talented in her own way). And it got even worse when she got poisoned. The only thing going for her is having a stronger connection to Raava. Stronger, not perfect. Hence Korra being disconnected from Raava for 3+ years after fighting the Red Lotus, and not even being able to enter the spirit world. So Korra wouldnt have the potential to restore it. But if any Avatar after her possesses strong spiritual capabilities, they may have that potential unlike any Avatar before them. So what I think could be done is make an Avatar post-Korra who specializes in spiritual matters and have them regain the ability to sense their connection to the other Avatars again, technically "restoring" it in the process.

      Its what I intend to do for my Avatar anyways.

      Just by you having good ideas like this (and interested in writing Avatar), I can sense a strong future with the Avatar franchise. Even if the original creators don't continue the animation, someone will. There is too much money and cult following not to further production in the future. This show is was one of a kind, and its ahead of its time.

    • i wish they'd just continue the series.

      To watch an earthbending avatar grow up would be tremendous. In addition we'd also see progress regarding the world he/she lives in which would be so interesting! 

      Also do I think that it'd be cool to see an fully grown up avatar since both of the times now we had "childs and teens". 

      ProfessorKukui4Life really like your idea, espeacially the part with a new avatar reestablishing connection with past lives. 

      There must be some company out there who would pay a talented team of designers to create another series. DeMartino and Konietzko could just hand it off to someone else without even having to be a part of it.

    • Avatar Aang was able to connect with Avatar Kyoshi by wearing her clothes, though they were rumored to be "still connected to her spirit"On avatar day. Though, even if she does we probably won't see it because the series has finished.

    • I'd love to see more in the Avatar franchise, I can't wait for each comic/graphic novel to come out several months after the previous one.

      At the end of the Legend of Korra finale, all I cared about was Korra reconnecting with the past avatars, especially Aang, I cared about that so much that I gave barely any thought to the Korrasami moment at the end. Whenever I think back to the finale I tend to think, if leaving the spirit portals opened somehow restored balance by giving random people airbending (something which I feel wasn't fully explained) then surely Avatar State Korra vs Kuvira's Spirit Weapon should have done something to restore Korra's connection seeing as it somehow created a new Spirit Portal (which I also think wasn't fully explained.

      Reading through the posts on this discussion, I think it would be interesting for Korra to go on some great journey to collect whatever souvenirs/items she can which are connected to past Avatars (Wan's teapot, Avatar Relics, Aang's magical meditating necklace, Kyoshi's clothes, maybe the Fire Prince's Crown that Roku had for most of his life etc) and then meditated under the tree of time to try and reconnect using the memories the tree stores as well as the cosmic energy in the universe or something, I don't know, I just want the past Avatars back! At the very least, Korra could try meditating under the tree of time now she has a good connection to Raava again, though I doubt that alone would do much.

      Either that or, as also previously suggested in the discussion, a new Avatar that wants to learn more about their Avatar lineage could try going on some life-changing journey to fix what Korra couldn't do, kinda like how Aang had to deal with the war which Roku was responsible for not being able to prevent.

      Thinking back to Roku's explanation of the Avatar State, is Korra weaker in the Avatar State now compared to previous Avatars?!

      "The Avatar State is a defense mechanism, designed to empower you with the skills and knowledge of all the past Avatars... The glow is the combination of all your past lives focusing their energy through your body"

      Based on that explanation, either Korra should be weaker in the Avatar State. Yet since she was still powerful enough to open up a new spirit portal then surely this means there must be some, very fragile and delicate connection to her past lives. I mean, there's no real way that I can think of which we can measure an Avatar's power within the Avatar State, but just by comparison to previous Avatars, I'm not sure there's really many other Avatar fetes which can be compared to this.

      At the end of the day I'm not that fussed about what the particular story/journey is, I just want the Avatar to connect with their past lives, with some sort of explanation as to how this was achieved rather than just saying they woke up one morning and found they somehow had connection again (not saying anyone would write anything along the lines of this, but I mean I'd like a proper explanation rather than just a sudden change in the story to say that the Avatar got their connection to past lives back). I just want more Avatar!

    • I just want the next Avatar to be so OP. Besides being a master of the four elements, the next Avatar has also learned specialized sub bending styles like Lightning bending, Lavabending, metalbending. The next Avatar will be the one to be able to reconnect the past lives of the Avatar spirit.

    • Well, just incase I unfortunately never get the chance to start my Avatar story, I did have some pretty cool ideas on abilities for my Avatar to obtain. It would be consisting of "reality"-bending, time bending, enhanced spirit water bending and an evolved-form of the Avatar State that no Avatar has ever been able to achieve.

    • I don't understand why the past lives were not regained when Raava was revived when they were the last she was revived, back when Aang had died in the Avatar State and subsequently was revived by Katara using the Spirit Oasis Water... how is that consistent? Going by what we know of the Avatar State and what happens once the Avatar dies in it, logically Raava must have died back then too, yes? We know that when the Avatar dies in the State, the cycle is broken, and the Avatar will cease to exist. If this is not meant as the death of the Avatar Spirit, what is it? The death of the "host" of Raava? We saw a visual representation of the past lives disappearing, as if being destroyed, back when Aang died, just like we did with Korra. There were minor differences, like Aang's going up in smoke and Korra's bursting into sparks, but still seemed to portray the same thing.

      And I disagree. The change had absolutely no bearing on Korra, the world, the story. She barely ever talked to the past Avatars. Therefore, it was just irelevant. It didn't need to happen. She was also her own Avatar already, and since people are citing that as a good reason for the severing of that connection, that makes no sense for that specific reason. She didn't listen to them, she didn't use their guidance. She was her own person to begin with. It was just a nonsensical choice from a purely technical writing perspective.

      Are you saying I came off as rude? Because then just say that. I do think I did though, but only with my opening statement. I am sorry about that one Dean. You might not be wrong. But I disagree with your opinion.

      Also, remember that Pathik taught us a morale during AtLA about everything being connected, that separation was illusion, and that some things are even the same. The death of the past lives is also somewhat a violation of that philosophy/morale, which was a major point in AtLA. And a message to the viewers. Of course it was kinda meant in a "Treat others the way you want to be treated" kind of way. Which, with my "dead wrong" comment, I didn't do. It's late though, I am tired. I think that's why that harsh language slipped out. Sorry, again.
