*COUGH* Um, I tried.
Is this what would happen if Tarrlok and David Xanatos had a son?
I was going to point out how ridiculous it is that Tarrlok needs an office large enough to span five full-length windows.
Then again, he ended up being the only council member to actually accomplish anything, so I guess he earned it.
Okay, so around episodes 8 and 9 I decided I absolutely had to write a fanfic about Tarrlok’s childhood (which ended up focusing heavily on Yakone). But then the finale happened and I lost all motivation to write. Tarrlok’s canon childhood ended up being pretty similar to my ideas anyway, so this is probably never going to evolve beyond lengthy notes.
Really. There are too many notes. I figured I’d dump it all here just so it will get off my laptop and quit trying to guilt me into writing it. The notes aren’t really edited. Some of them aren’t even chronological. There are scattered fangirl emotions throughout.
Edit: There are so many notes here, please for the love of god don’t even try.
(Also, trigger warning for abusive relationships.)
i seriously thought that this was bolin
geez young!Tarrlok looks exactly like him here
What is that, soup? Because that is some extremely reflective broth.
But yeah, Tarrlok did look a lot like Bolin. Kind of makes you wonder what Bolin’s going to look like when he’s 37…
sorry but I promised to post this (a)monstrosity
Oh my God, this is actually perfect.
1. Creepy, dangerous man.
2. Insanely rich and powerful.
3. Unhealthy interest in a younger woman.
4. Sends her expensive presents without any call for it.
5. Disturbing interest in aforementioned younger woman’s blood…
Title: misbegotten son(s): release
Fandom: The Legend of Korra
Summary: A young Amon is left alone with Yakone when Tarrlok leaves.
A/N: Tarrlok’s backstory roughly based on this theory by birdbrainblue at tumblr. And ep. 9 pretty much confirmed it.
Disclaimer: I own nothing related to the Legend of Korra.
Once again, my reply is longer than I thought it would be.
