I really, really want to write a fic where Korra and Mako are in the Step Up scenario.
Guy does something illegal and put to community service as a janitor for the fancy dance school.
Meets a girl there.
AND THEN THEY DANCE OFF INTO THE SUNSET
(No but seriously now)
I think it’d be a cool idea.
Mako gets caught stealing a little cash from the school, telling himself that they’re so rich they won’t miss a couple hundred dollars and that he needs it to pay off his rent so he and Bolin don’t wind up on the streets again.
Instead of putting him in jail they just sentence him to about a year or so of community service to work at the very same dance school he tried to rob.
He meets Korra there who’s practicing for her solo for this big performance.
He’s been around enough gangs and seen dance battles not to mention he knows martial arts (we’re gonna say that he found a way to combine the two when he competed because there’s a cash prize or something and it was an easy way to get money). So he shows her some moves after watching her for awhile after the day’s ended.
BOOM! She becomes intrigued by him, blah, blah, blah.
And then at some point in time he meets Korra’s friend, Asami, who is more into ballet and ballroom dancing while Korra’s more the hip hop type (but Asami convinced her to do some ballet because it was great for working on her flexibility).
Asami develops a little crush on Mako. And he kind of likes her back (but I won’t put anyone through the torture of them actually dating because then it will just get messy). But overtime he realizes he likes Korra as well. And Korra likes him too, even though she knows of Asami’s crush on him and promise to try to hook those two up (okay maybe it’s a LITTLE messy).
And the thing that started this all (because actually I’ve had this idea for about a month now) was when I was listening to Pop Culture by Madeon and I envisioned this really cool dance scene on the roof of some building between Korra and Mako (because he convinced her to let him dance with her in the performance thingy).
And it starts to rain and Mako suggests they finish their routine inside. But Korra says how rain doesn’t hurt anyone and theN THINGS GET REALLY HOT BECAUSE THEY’RE BOTH SOAKED TO THE BONE BECAUSE OF THE SUDDEN DOWNPOUR AND DANCING AND RUBBING ALL AGAINST EACH OTHER.
I swear these stories just write themselves.
Anyway, the only reason I’m telling you all this is because I actually don’t know if I should write it since I have a bunch of other things on my plate. But if you guys want this bad enough I’ll start on it as soon as I can (no promises when the first chapter will come out though since I still have this prompt to finish).
