Valentines by rufftoon Valentines by rufftoon
Apologies in advance if I do not respond to your comment- life has gone crazier. I will read everything, promise!

Started this on February 13th..usually would have been finished on time for Valentine, but got caught up in work. Heh.
Lo and Li (those two old ladies at the bottom), Azula's counsellors, playing the shipping-matchmaking game and twisting everything around.
Don't ask me who they matched the kids and Iroh with. That's one of these things they'll never talk about (not to me anyway) ;)

Happy Valentines everyone (though late). May you find your perfect match in life!

Really quick pencil sketch, color slapped on in Photoshop.

All the characters belong to Mike, Bryan and Nickelodeon. Why they even let me near these characters, I don't know.

Dying of laughter right now XD Sokka LOL! Always has the best/funniest expressions. And Zuko's reaction! Did his card try biting him or something? Haha. Why is Iroh burning his card, I mean what could be scary/gross enough to make him do that? Gaaah! And just what is Toph's card saying to make Zhao, Cabbage Man, and Foaming Mouth Guy look like that?! And -dare I ask- WHAT did she wright for Ozai's card??? So curious about what everyone's cards say now :squee: Love this! Heart

Well, I may as well take a shot at it. First I have to assume that everyone got matched up into symmetric pairs, otherwise it's too difficult to figure out. (By the way, I really enjoyed going through your Avatar stuff. Your work is truly excellent.)


Thanks to the Avatar fanboy frothing at the mouth, I believe that Toph is matched with Aang; I don't know if the cabbage guy's and Zhao's reactions are meaningful in any way. For his part, Aang's reaction doesn't seem to be one of disgust, but of surprise.
Katara appears to be barfing. She's possible matched up with Sokka, but almost everyone else (excluding Aang and Toph who have been accounted for) is fair game. However, I'd remove Zuko from her pool of potential matches because I don't think she'd barf so much as get annoyed (and/or perhaps blush).
Sokka's reaction could indicate anyone except for Toph. The skull seems to imply danger, so it's likely one of the fire trio or Zuko. Katara's also a possibility. Then again, being paired with an old lady might give him a heart attack....
Ty Lee is happy, so she's probably matched with Sokka (meaning Katara is reacting to something else). She might also be matched with Azula, but methinks that their reactions would be slightly different if that were the case (seeing as they're in the same panel).
Uncle Iroh probably wouldn't look perplexed unless he had a good reason; he's probably matched up with any of Zuko (nephew), Azula (niece), Lo and/or Li (no thank you). He probably would have simply laughed off any other pairing.
Mai doesn't look bored (which is what you'd usually expect from her); instead, she looks disturbed by what she just saw. I say it's probably a female. I'd count Iroh as a candidate if his reaction were different.
Zuko dropped his because of what appears to be a mixture of fear and disgust. His reaction makes me lean towards Azula or one/both of the old ladies. It's possible he was matched with a guy as well, but I'm not sure he would be as scared looking. Then again, being paired with his uncle would be plenty disturbing.
Azula looks genuinely unable to process what she's looking at, so I'd lean towards Zuko, Iroh or Lo+Li. Ty Lee was also a possibility due to her reaction, but I think Azula would be less baffled if that were the case.


Aang x Toph
Sokka x Ty Lee
Katara x Mai
Zuko x Uncle Iroh
Azula x Lo+Li


Aang x Toph seems to be quite likely thanks to the Avatar fanboy's frothing mouth.
Sokka x Ty Lee and Katara x Mai seem like good fits thanks to their history of being matched up against each other in battle.
Zuko, Azula, Iroh, and Lo+Li are all pretty much interchangeable as their reactions seem to fit for any of those combinations. I went with Zuko x Iroh and Azula x Lo+Li because they have history with each other, and I'd assume shippers tend to ship people in close proximity more often than not. The best alternative would be Zuko x Azula and Iroh x Lo+Li because of fandom's inclination towards "wincest" and putting characters with vague similarites (in this case, old age) together.


Uh. I dunno. It's all guesswork. For all I know, Sokka x Katara, Ty Lee x Azula, Mai x Lo+Li could have been the actual matches (leaving Aang x Toph and Zuko x Iroh as they were because the other pairings limit their possibilities).

Please reveal the answer O Mighty One.
disconnected123 Featured By Owner May 1, 2014
Then again, Aang could've actually gotten one from his fanboy. In that case: Katara x Sokka, Toph x Mai, Zuko x Iroh, Ty Lee x Azula, with Lo+Li staying out of it.

Or maybe Momo is reacting to a picture of a cabbage??? I'm not losing sleep over this, but it sure is a mystery.

...And I'm guessing they went with Zhao x Ozai, 'cause that would be funny....

lolipopgirl2002 Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm gonna say it was probably Zukaang, SokkaxAzula, Katoph and Uncle Iroh with Lo and Li or whatever their names are.Epic meme!

I wonder who they paired.... Zuko probably got a Zuaang from his reaction... I'd like to know the others:dignity-laugh:
