This was one of the earliest images thought of for CTCS, as it sprang from the setup for one of the first scenes written (the one in Asami's office wherein she expects Korra to be asleep and then discovers that she's not). In order to get the staging worked out, I actually made a mockup of the office using one of the downtown apartments in The Sims 3 Late Night.
Opinions vary in the EPU studio as to exactly what Asami is thinking in the final illustration, but we've concluded it's probably some proportional combination of the following:
- "I suppose I ought to wake her up and send her off to a proper bed. It's obvious dinner isn't happening tonight after all."
- "... awwwwwww."
- "... huh? Lost my train of thought."
- "Look at that. Boots on the sofa AGAIN. Tch, Water Tribe savage..."
(As an aside, I had a tricky time getting the example screenshot taken when the time came. I actually had to disable spontaneous character actions and just use the Korra and Asami Sims as puppets, because if I left them to their own devices - I promise you I am not making this up - not only wouldn't they stay in their assigned places, they couldn't keep their hands off each other. They'd be off to the races almost immediately, and before I could finish hunting for the right camera angle, odds were they'd have left the apartment altogether to go have a quick one in the elevator. That was funny at the time, 14-15 months ago, but it's even funnier now.)
