Fanvid: When You Believe (Finale Tribute) //Korra and Avatar by PumpkinPie89 (PG)
Note: Tears were shed in the process of making this AMV So um...everyone knows I have feelings about the season finale of Korra. I have a HUGE rant on my Tumblr so if you want to know those feelings...just give that a read. Anyhow, I knew I wanted to make a video that is a tribute to both the build up to and the finale itself. And after a little thought, I knew I wanted to do that by paralleling Korra and the Krew's journey with Aang and Gaang's journey. Though it starts off despondent and hopeless, it ends with a resounding cry of victory.

Death Brings Clarity Trilogy JK Philips (R)
Post-“Gift” epic. Giles has a moment of clarity, but it’s too late. How he deals with Buffy’s death and how she comes back to him.

The Slayer is dead.

She leaves behind her friends, her sister, and her Watcher.

He should not be so surprised. He has read the Watchers’ Diaries, whose pages all end so abruptly. He has been raised and guided towards this destiny since the age of ten. And so he should have known that this moment was inevitable.

But she was not like the others. And in the end, she did not die like the others. Not cut down by her foe in battle, his Slayer sacrificed herself to save her sister and the world. And he is left alone, empty, a lifetime’s purpose lying dead atop the rubble before him.

But there is another who can understand his pain, a dark power who will not let this Slayer rest in her grave. And though he believes he has already lost everything with her death, he will learn that he still has more to lose…
