Water Tribe 080 by NoSelfControl Water Tribe 080 by NoSelfControl
Conspiracies, conspiracies, people plotting...

Page original size 5,5" X 8".
Rough pencils. Grey shading, lettering and word ballons done in Photoshop
These pages done for fun, and also as a good exercise in storytelling and planning on such a long scale, which I had not really done before.
I am not planning on inking, cleaning more or coloring them. I simply do not have the time.

The Avatar universe belongs to Mike, Bryan, Nickelodeon-Viacom-MTV.
All the characters belong to them, but a few of the extras are my own creation.

....AZULA? Ooooohhhh, no. No, no, no. Well...she only suffered a psychotic break, so she wouldn't be held in a mental facility...

KATARA. She totally married Zuzu. YES.

I don't think they'd refer to Koh as a person- unless they don't know who they are actually dealing with.

Honey, if you keep thickening this plot, you're gonna need a cement mixer. :D

Ha ha, I don't think it is very thick- a bit murky, perhaps.

It is either Azula, or Katara.
Azula is ofcourse a manipulating psycho, like her father. But Katara can be very threatening as well. Remember the little warning Katara gave Zuko ? Chilling.

Yes it is farfetched, but I like things mixed up a bit.

The fourth person ? No idea.
Reply
:iconrufftoon:
rufftoon Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2008
Good guesses for both- wonder though- would Katara be in contact with old Fire Nation officers?
Reply
:icondoggyspew:
DoggySpew Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2008
Well, this is after several years after the events of the series. You never know what would happen in between.
Which gives it an extra dimension and source for plot.

Maybe she still has a grudge against Zuko---> Falling out with Aang ---> A woman scorned... etcetera ---> Allies herself with old FN officers.


Still fatfetched, I know.

Commander Hong's beard reminds me of pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey.
Hrm, women in power.... Ursa, Mai if she's Zuko's wifey, maybe Azula if Zuko decided to keep her.....
I'm voting Ursa, it seems most likely to me.

Hmmm, we could do a variation of that game with Hong's beard.
The mysterious "she" revealed pretty soon, along with what types of political games these men are playing.

Pin the beard on the Hong.
I have the utmost faith Zhao shall overcome whatever obstacles those men throw at him.
...Hopefully while being shirtless....

Oh goody! An anonymous female character of supposedly great influence! If this were the real Avatar series every fangirl and their cousin would jump to put their mary sues or self-inserts or whatever in the story. However, as this is only a fancomic and you are a reasonable storyteller I don't see anything like that happening anytime soon. But, it's still an amusing thought. :P

There is only ONE woman of power that could sway a faction of the Fire Nation army.
