Thank you, , for the fantastic lineart!

This is a submission for her contest--everything's done in Paint, so I don't really expect to have a running shot in it (if you haven't seen what this is up against, go over there and look, some of the coloring is INCREDIBLE!!!), but I might get a point or two for creativity. ^_^

Is there symbolism to this? Meaning? Well, yeah, I suppose, but it also happened that the positions of the feet lined up properly like this. Though, looking at it now, it DOES sort of look like Aang, Sokka, and Zuko are doing the Cingular bars thing....but yeah, it was mainly the feet. And a bit of Kataang thrown in. I mean, hey, the Zutarians already have theirs up, Kataang needs a shot here! :)

Thanks a BUNCH to , who gave me some tips on fixing up the ice and coloring in general. Yeah, the coloring is simple, but it's done in my usual style--draw (or in this case, print), ink, scan, use Paint....ta-da!

Took me roughly....three hours, I think? Kind of rushed, I guess, but....I'm happy with it. Yeah, the sky is rubbish, but I felt that a detailed sky would detract from the focus on the characters and reflections.

Thank you again to for the lineart, and for letting me play with it!

However, whoever drew them, the characters still belong to Nickelodeon and Viacom.
The lineart, for clarity, belongs to rufftoon, aka , whose gallery is comprised of a vast assortment of hilarity and jaw-dropping art. You can view the deviation used here: [link]
This particular image is kind of mine. But all I really did was color and put in the ice.

Enjoy this! :)

You should be welcoming of Kataang, though....I welcome Zutara in proper doses...aka, no snogging, something subtle....

Eh, I'm just not a fan of Kataang. It disturbs me. I don't bash the ship choice like some do mine, but I don't like it either. Plus the whole Zutara ship has the added bonus of "opposites attract" and "forbidden love", which makes it more fun to write about and makes romance fans go "AWW!!!11". :D

I've gotten turned off by it....I love BBxRae for opposites attract, but Zutara....well, it was fun when it WAS "opposites attract," but the fans have manhandled it into something ugly. I know that that's true, because that's why I don't ship them anymore....:|

Someone pointed out that Kataang is actually not the Oedipal ship, but Zutara is....Zuko needs a mother figure, Katara acted motherly to him, and, well....that kind of kinked it. I can't ship them anymore, really. And I honestly don't think it's going to happen. I think the writers knew where the story was going to go from the start, and I don't think they really intended Zutara to happen....:|....I think they just had some fun with it in the more flexible halftime show.

I find Maizu fun to write about....it's a lot cuter.
