My favorite relationship in Avatar definitely has to be Zuko with his uncle.
Here’s a piece I made for the @quarantinefanzine for-charity multi-fandom zine imagining how characters would deal with a quarantine situation. I just illustrated team Avatar chilling on their balcony on a summer day just so it would be more universal and not limited to quarantine.

Mai in hanbok🗡
Mai’s hanbok is a jangsam. (Yes it sounds the same as Aang’s monk robes but the word has multiple meanings) This type of clothing is similar to Azula’s soui because this was also worn by noblewomen during early Joseon as ceremonial clothes, and was sometimes also used at weddings. Mai’s has a hyoongbae(square or circle-shaped decoration on the chest. Zuko has a round one in my other drawing)’ which only the queen or princess could wear with their jangsam. I mean she’s already one of the highest-ranking people in the Fire Nation and partner of Zuko who is a prince/firelord so it pretty much fits.
[ID: A digital drawing of Mai in hanbok. She is in a dark red jangsam decorated with gold colored fire nation emblems. She also has a belt and hyoongbae with gold embroidery decorations. She is holding two knives in each hand, and is looking to the left. The background is grayish brown with a stylized picture of Mai’s knife in reddish brown. End ID.]

ATLA prompt, Toph and Bumi first meeting post show finale?
“Ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to the finale of Earth Rumble VII!”
A roar of applause sweeps through the crowd at the Boulder's entrance. He's looking great now — almost fully recovered from his injuries during the invasion — but to Sokka's great disappointment, he's not here to compete.
“One of our most notable alums is returning today folks, freshly back from training the Avatar himself! Let’s welcome today’s challenger, the Bliiiiind Bandit!”
Sokka joins the rest of the crowd, clapping and screaming wildly in support of his friend. Down in the ring, Toph is clearly in her element, doing a few turns around the ring to hype up her adoring fans.
“The Fire Nation Army couldn’t even defeat Gaoling’s homegrown superstar, folks!” the Boulder continues. “But how is she going to shape up against the Earth Rumble Season VII Champion? Let’s welcome the mighty — and undefeated — Grand Master!”
There’s a lot of rumbling, and suddenly, King Bumi of all people erupts out of the stadium floor in a huge tornado made out of earth.
“We meet again, little Toph!” he calls out from the top of his earthnado, cackling madly.
Toph turns to face her opponent, cracking her knuckles. “Don’t think I’m going to go easy on you because you’re a senior citizen, Grandpa,” she taunts.
“Oooh, feisty, this one!” Bumi says, and because he’s absolutely crazy, he also announces: “By the way, did I forget to mention? The challenger who defeats me inherits my kingdom!!”
The stadium goes absolutely nuts. For a split second, Toph looks wrong-footed — and then Bumi hits her with a boulder right on the head.
“Oh, you bastard!” Toph howls. “I don’t even want your kingdom, but just for that, you’re going down!”

People who think Toph has no character arc don’t seem to realize the very traits they claim stay the same are where all of her growth lies.
A character arc doesn’t have to mean a complete overhaul of your personality, but rather development of the flaws which stem from your personality. And that is exactly the kind of more subtle growth we get with Toph Beifong.
Yes, throughout the series Toph remains tough, stubborn, fiercely independent, brash, and unforgiving. The core components of her personality remain as rooted and grounded as the element she represents.
Until the end, she remains true to the Blind Bandit we met and loved from day one.
After a life of having to depend on her own strength and learning to thrive in seclusion, Toph is independent to a fault. She’s afraid to let people in and rely on them, as she is the only true rock she has had in her life. Her self assured nature is just as much a survival mechanism as it is a natural component of her personality.
Her story is one of learning to allow herself to depend on her friends, ask for help, and accept external help and validation.
We see this time and time again. At the beginning of season 2, Toph is insulted by Iroh pouring her tea, only for him to explain he poured her tea simply because he wanted to. At this beginning of her arc, Toph saw the act as a commentary on her capability and independence, rather than the simple act of kindness or was.
She stays out of situations where she is vulnerable, such as the ice in ‘The Serpent’s Pass’, so she can maintain this sense of independence.
By the end? Toph has grown to accept the love and help of her fiends— to the point she asks Katara to help her write a letter to her parents. This is something season 2 Toph would have been WAY too prideful to do. Further, we see her actively going into situations and sights where her blindness is a vulnerability, as she leans on Sokka atop of the airships.
Toph changes a lot, many of us just don’t see it because it means acknowledging the flaws which come from her traits that are generally perceived as positive attributes. We seek independence and strength so fervently, we don’t want to admit the downside which can come from these characteristics being taken too far. How an over dependence on the strength of your individual spirit and neglect of the human need for external love and validation can slowly break you. Yes, love yourself and be strong/ your own champion. But part of loving yourself is loving yourself enough to recognize the love you receive from others and that you’re worthy of it. Part of strength is knowing when you need help, and taking in the strength/ support from those around you while giving your own in return.
Toph’s development isn’t just nuanced and notable, it’s arguably one of the most human and grounded of all of the characters.
Her story is that of learning to accept other’s love and ask for help— and isn’t that just one of the most universal experiences of all?

If you’re still taking requests, could you do maybe Book 1 Zutara or Zutara as little kids (bc that puppy love would be adorable 🥺)?
I ended up doing book 1 zutara just cause I think it's pretty underrated
I just realized I ended up doing Katara in her book 3 outfit instead alfbskkfjskjf I hope you like it anyway :'>

Casting Collage: Air Nomads
Since my post on “Face Inspirations” got such a positive reception, I thought I’d share my very extensive “casting” collage for the Air Nomads, from my other tumblr: Avatar Fancast. To make it more relevant to this Tumblr, I’ll list the Asian ancestry of each actor I’ve chosen:
Tsering Dorjee (Gyatso): Tibetan
Jessika Van (Yangchen): Chinese
Lucy Liu (Sister Iio): Chinese
Ian Chen (Aang): Chinese
John Cho (Pasang): Korean
Richard Ouyang (Tashi): Chinese
Like what I’m doing? Tips always appreciated, never expected. ^_^
