I would really love to see some Iroh (Uncle Iroh, that is). Other characters that would be great are Sokka and Toph. Maybe Iroh and Toph chilling and drinking tea? or Sokka and Toph being goofy? I’d also be pretty cool with some Sokka and Suki. Or any of these guys by themselves would also be good. I’m generally more for light hearted/ funny situations, but if you would like to go more serious, that would be fine too. If you would rather go with someone from LoK, Bolin would be great. Bolin and Korra being silly, or with Pabu, or whoever… I’m not too picky!
From your Santa Isaia:
Happy New Year and Merry Belated Christmas to you Redbaroness!
I went along with the ATLA route you mentioned. So here’s Uncle Iroh, Sokka, Toph and Suki in a fancy FireNation-styled inn partying hard on a Winter Solstice Holiday. I hope you like it!
This is really just too cute to handle!
Looks like Sokka is getting his butt kicked, and Toph looks so angry that she’s cold… aaaaaa these are pretty much all my favorite characters <333
thanks so much, you awesome secret santa <33
I am so glad you enjoyed it, Redbaroness! AW YEAHHHH

I want this because of reasons.
Because I roleplay as Long Feng and the Dai Li a lot.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO AVATAR-MOM!!!
One of the loveliest ladies I’ve ever known since the ATLA days, whose generosity, sweetness and kindness has helped me through many tough emotional times, and whose fangirl energy has recharged my fanbattery many-a time!
I miss you, lady! I remember during our Avatar fan NYC comic con adventures, I drew a scribbly crap version of this drawing and I always felt bad that I couldn’t make it prettier with more feelings. So I wanted to revisit this moment and this memory ;w;
Sword for Sale!
The sword that Sokka covets at the shop is called a jian.
The jian (剑)is a double-edged straight sword used during the last 2,500 years in China. The first Chinese sources that mention the jian date to the 7th century BCE during the Spring and Autumn Period. Historical one-handed versions have blades varying from 45 to 80 centimeters (17.7 to 31.5 inches) in length. The weight of an average sword of 70-centimeter (28-inch) blade-length would be in a range of approximately 700 to 900 grams (1.5 to 2 pounds).
The jian is also known as “The Gentleman of Weapons” and is considered one of the four major weapons, along with the Gun (staff), Qiang (spear), and the Dao (sabre).
The sword itself:
- The sword is decorated with the symbol for longevity, a stylized version of the character 寿, often used to decorate (for example) clothes.
- The sheath also features several lotus flowers; Piandao seems to be fond of decorating with them :P
- A stylized Fire Nation dragon, like the one we see on the banner at Zuko’s homecoming.
- A dragon with a flaming pearlsymbolizing wealth, good luck, and prosperity.
- The dragon has 4 claws. This means that either Piandao himself is nobility, or that the sword originally was commissened by a noble.* “Historically, the dragon was the symbol of the Emperor of China. In the Zhou Dynasty, the 5-clawed dragon was assigned to the Son of Heaven, the 4-clawed dragon to the nobles, and the 3-clawed dragon to the ministers.”
- There are two more symbols on the sword that I cannot identify. Anyone? They kinda maybe could be more lotus flowers.
*Yes, I am aware of the website content and the backstory they give him.
“Move aside, Hao Jin, there’s a new Captain in town. And he’s about to put the hurt in the dirt.”
Now time for bro-bonding over fire flakes.

“It would seem that your bending has some sort of cosmic tie to the Green Light, Princess Azula.”
“We could conquer, you and I.”
A quick little doodle-thank you to Grey DeLisle for following me on Twitter today. Love your talent, and thank you for these two amazing ladies!
Water, Earth, Fire, Air. These are the four elements the Avatar must master to complete their training. Start your journey as the Avatar by master one of these Elemental tote bags! Not the bending type you say? That’s ok, that never stopped Sokka from buying a new bag for himself every now and then.
Elemental Insignia is on the front of the bag decorating a small cell phone or wallet pocket.
The back is decorated with an appropriate corresponding character or design.
Water Symbol with Naga on the back
Earth Symbol with Bei Fong flying boar seal on the back
Air Symbol with Air Glider on the back
Oh, hey so that guy I’m dating made these for his cousins for trick-or-treat bags and is hoping to sell some to raise the money to buy a Portal Gun at NYCC. Know a little (or big) AtLA/Korra fan that might be interested? :)
Also I took the pictures with his little birthday girl sister who was a great model. ;)
