Pirate couple commission! My commissioner was absolutely lovely and a great communicator. Thanks! I’m open for more, just drop me an ask.
First things first: As you can see, this super duper art was done by sleep-ran, and they are still open for commissions ^^^
Aaahhh, my OCs! On the left is Kallis, my main character, and on the right is Eldira. They start off as leaders of opposing groups of pirates, who go from competing over territory, to pretty much honestly trying to kill each other, to uncovering some secrets that end up in a desperate struggle to keep Kallis alive…and they fall in love along the way. I haven’t worked out all the details :P. These are two strong type A personalities with a lot of similarities, but of course they are different people too. (This ship has a lot in common with other couples I ship the hardest, which hey yup this is my story so I get to make it canon.)
I of course could tell you a lot more about these characters/the world they’re in if anyone wants to know… hehe.
THANK YOU SLEEP-RAN!

A+ method my friends.
no for real tho
My favourite part of all of these is I’m still genuinely uncertain as to every person’s gender. It’s adorable.
Then does that mean that girl in high school was using a pick-up line on me?
I just wanted to make a quick post to talk about how I love how genuine Zaheer seems to be when talking to Ikki and Meelo. I never thought he was just sucking up or being manipulative, he just seemed to like talking to them or, in Meelo’s case, be respectful to the little guy. I sorta theorize this is because (as he said) hes been a fan and scholar of airbenders for a long time, he probably has a LOT of respect for original airbenders like Meelo and Ikki. Sure, its definitely creepy to see Ikki discover Zaheer in her dads study in the dark, but the way he tells Ikki about the pendants poem and even says goodnight to her before he fights Kya makes the character seem more human. besides, he seemed to get a lot of happiness from getting to share some knowledge about Guru Laghima to Ikki, as he’s smiling pretty genuinely the whole time, but as soon as Kya walks in his smile goes away and hes immediately scowling a bit and more defensive.
This is something I think book 3 is doing so well at. We have all of the villains having their moment of being relate-able. Whether it be Gazan being uncomfortable around his friends making out, to Ming hua “Showing off” around P’li, these characters all feel like bros and are all relate-able in some way. I don’t know, I just love these villains!
I find it really interesting how far the show’s been going this season to humanize the Red Lotus, sometimes even at the expense of their White Lotus captors.
There’s the stuff you mentioned, of course, but I kind of feel like we haven’t had a single subplot for these guys that didn’t do something to make them sympathetic.
Zaheer was introduced in his prison cell, being subjected to dehumanizing treatment (hands on head, face to wall) and mocked by his guards (“hope you still like rice,” “you think some children’s story is going to save you?”). His one-liner when he left made him seem dangerous at first, but it’s since become obvious that he’s not really interested in killing people and the guards were probably saved within days when the White Lotus went to check on them after Ghazan escaped.
Ghazan was introduced doing pull-ups in his cell like Iroh, and he immediately demonstrated his rapport with Zaheer on release.
Ming-Hua was introduced looking utterly miserable in a condition akin to Hama’s, and while her fighting style marked her as the most vicious of the four, she still clearly seemed to be friendly with the other two.
P’li was introduced shivering from the cold and wanting to get warm (in the sort of double-entendre way that suggested that she wanted Zaheer’s warmth as much as warmth in general), her friendship with Ming-Hua was quickly established when she broke out, and her first reaction to getting away was to make out with her boyfriend.
That’s… really not how these things usually go. Azula and her friends got some of it in A:tLA, but the majority of it came in Book 3, after they ceased to be constant threats to the Gaang, and Azula herself clearly didn’t understand how friendship actually works, whereas these three could be the heroes of a heist movie in an AU.
And, meanwhile, their enemies (outside of Kya) consistently show off their darkest side, when they’re characterized at all. Zaheer’s guards mocked him, the first impression Zuko gives is of imperious Fire Lord rather than wise old man, the twins talk about wanting to throw people in their new secret prison for petty reasons, Zuko and the Eska talk casually about their attempts on the Avatar’s life, and even Tonraq throws brutal-looking kill shots at Zaheer. If we didn’t already know the White Team were the good guys and the Red Lotus had designs on the hero, it’d be really easy to flip the apparent morality with a soundtrack change, I think.
I can’t imagine this doesn’t mean something, given how far they’ve gone to make things look this way. =P
Remember how Tarrlok was humanized with an abusive backstory and then not only does he commit fratricide/suicide, but Bryan says this as the scene plays: “This guy was just a total jerk the whole season…he realizes the best thing for the whole world and society is they are not part of it.”
rEMeMbER. UN a La Q??????
I’m not holding my breath for the Red Lotus being treated kindly.
