Burn With My Flame by Berende Burn With My Flame by Berende
The title sounds quite violent, doesn't it? It wasn't supposed to, but whaddaya know.

Sister piece finished and is here: [link]

Yeeees, I finished watching Avatar and I refuse to acknowledge the romantic outcomes. I mean, Katara my dear, Aang? Seriously? The funny bald kid who likes to whirl around on a ball of wind? Sure, he's the Avatar, but that doesn't mean you have to pick him of all people. There are other options, honey. Like a certain young Fire Lord, for example. And Mai? Don't you worry, I'll handle her...

Ghh :D

In case you haven't figured it out yet, these two here are Zuko and Katara, who are both strangely difficult to draw. And I don't know why he's shirtless again, I guess I felt his poofy sleeves just didn't fit into the picture. :lol: Call it skin-drawing practise. =P

This is a gorgeous piece! I love the flames and how you coloured them. They make me think of this line:

"My heart burns for you!" Haha!

Yeah, I don't get why she chose Aang after they had that fight. I mean, at least the little guy could have said "Sorry" for what he did at Ember Island and acting completely childish (she wasn't his girlfriend at the time and why would you get so jealous over what happened in a play? And then have a go at Katara?). And Mai? She can do much better. I love Zuko and all but why settle for a guy who forgets about you in prison and yells at you for not being "passionate" enough?

Anyway, it doesn't matter. There's always fanfiction!

Thanks!

Yeah, good point about Mai and Zuko... :D If my boyfriend left me to rot in prison... well, let's just say there are plenty of fish in the sea. =P

And yes, hail fanfiction!

You're welcome!

That saying is very true. I would not blame Mai for going out and getting her fishing rod for what Zuko did, and not just because I like Zuko/Katara. A girl's gotta stand her ground and say "I will not be treated like this!" you know?

Yup! And Mai seems like a tough enough lady to do just that.

Ahh right so Katara should have ended up with a person that she had no romantic feelings for. Right, I got ya.

Before I get any guff, I'm not a 'shipper either.
I just happened to see with my own eyes what happened in the show.

Really nice job on the flames and emotion =D
The romances of avatar were really half-assed. :P

Welcome to the Zutara camp, and what wonderful art you have. ^^

Kataang might have happened, but to me, I see it as temporary; it won't last long after the Finale(neither will Maiko)...Though I also have my own ideas of what happened during the Finale, and it has to do with a certain, lovely scene involving an Agni Kai and healing. :D

Anyway, don't mind the negativity up above and any more to come. They've been on about that same exact crap since the beginning of the Shipping wars. We usually just tend to ignore it and not let it get to us now that the shipping wars are over. such violent wars they were, too. You can have your opinion and it's free to favor Zutara. :hug:

Nicely said! Even if some may disagree.

The Zutara camp, eh?

*glances around*

Lookin' good! :thumbsup:

Shipping wars? O_o Well, I'm glad I missed them, sounds scary. Though I've seen different fights of opinion many enough times to know that they never really die down (and I suppose it's silly to expect them to do so, anyway). Which is understandable, I guess, and everybody's entitled to an opinion, of course. But I'm still constantly amazed at how heated the "conversation" over matters of opinion can get.

And thanks. :aww:

Yeah! You're a Zutarian my dear!^^ I'm happy that you finally watched Avatar. So you can make us some beautiful fanart like this! :)
I really like Katara/Zuko and I also think that they should have ended up together... But I just like Mai. She's a great character in a way.

Well, it's actually thanks to you that I'm a Zutarian at all. :D I would never have watched Avatar if you hadn't told me to, and I'm glad you did because I liked it very much. :aww:

Mai is indeed great in her own way - though rather tiring in my opinion, but also kinda cool... I have mixed feelings about her. O_o

Beautiful piece. I hope you do more Zutara art in the future. Ignore the comment above. Those types of comments are pretty much a package deal with being a Zutarian.

Luckily the Zutara package also includes positive comments, it seems. :aww:

:rofl: That's what I love most about Katara, she's the exact opposite of most of you fangirls. Which are shallow little airhead.

Yeah, the nerve of Katara and her non-shallowness falling for the short, bald kid (because that's all he obviously is. *facepalms* )

She should've "picked" the whiny kid with a hideous scar covering half his face with mommy issues, right? (But then again, Katara is shallow, at least, according to a lot of you Zutarians, so she wouldn't picked him either :p)

i really like this, i wish zuko and katara would have ended up together, for me this picture expresses the passion and love they have for each other, and how much they understand each other. hope you make more :)

I SO agree! Katara and Zuko should've ended up together. It would have been cliché, but every fan wants it, so why didn't the makers just go with that? Mai is scary. *shudder*

Berende Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Mmm, not all clichés are bad ones. :aww: The makers totally should've gone with that, I'm hoping for a new season when Zuko goes after his mother and Katara realizes she's desperately in love with him yadda yadda. :D

Mai is kind of dull and kind of cool at the same time, but she'll probably get bored of Zuko anyway, so why oh why should he waste time on her? -.-

Ethelle Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2009
:D Yeah! A world-wide fangasm that would be. :D

Hmf. No, no I just can't forgive Mai. And I will never admit that she's cool. *crosses arms and pouts*
