So far, I've had a 'meh, whatever' attitude in regards to shipping. While I enjoy the main pairings, none of them have really jumped out and shouted "Ship me! Ship me!" yet. I like the slap-slap-kiss-kiss nature of Makorra and how they seem to keep each other in check (plus it taps into the ol' Zutarian fangirl in me.) Then again, I also thought that the interactions between Korra and Bolin on their date in ep5 were sweet and reminded me of a few RL couples I know (right down to the burping contest, lol.) Then I also kinda like Asami/Mako, but think that Bolin/Asami could be interesting as well...
For me, it's like going to a buffet and trying to decide between several of your favorite dishes. You can't go wrong either way. Maybe once the season wraps up I'll feel more inclined to ship, but for right now, I'm happy with whatever.

Even now that I'm more inclined to be Borra, I do agree that I'm not nearly as passionate about it as I was about Katara and Aang. Then again, it also think it was the atmosphere of the site back then. We had a TON of members and a bunch of events surrounding the show. Dances, valentines.... the shipping was everywhere, and that made the fight very interesting and worth touting. This series is so rushed, so full of info that was absent every time there was bye in the original show. God I miss the kind of popularity we had during the second season..... to bad Nick isn't taking the time to plug this one nearly as much.
Nothing has leapt out and yelled 'ship me!' yet. Though, I have come to not much care for Mako and Pema's ideas on romance...stringing two people along...stealing someone else's partner...so yeah...won't be shipping them with anyone...

As much as I don't care to ship against the pregnant wife...yeah, that's kinda scummy. It does make it worse that she doesn't seem to feel it was in any way wrong. Just a good idea to pass along. Shipping in general is irritating when it is this blatant and incendiary.

I'm a shipper myself, I'd ship Borra but its ovbious that KorraxMako is endgame by now. Since Legend of Korra was supposed to be a mini series I think they'll be together by the end of book 1. I ship AsamixBolin myself and am hopping book 2 is more about that only they do a better job at it.
