Zuko/Katara Colorbars  
Okay, I came across redbrunja's post about colorbars and inspiration struck. ...But not really in the text department, so if you have any other ideas feel free to leave them in the comments. If you need them resized, I could do that too.

Also, these are going to break my LJ layout but I don't felt like fixing that at the moment. XD










Screencaps from iroh.org since I didn't have my dvds. :)

I love how the 2nd to last banners have that 'rainbow' quality without being.. rainbowy.

Taking the first one! Will credit if used ;)

Aww. I missed these two. And looking at your colorbars- wow. Their relationship is very versatile.

Thank you, bb! You're so kind to me. Those are my favorite kind of colorbars to make. I know it's 'in' to make sleeker, non-rainbow colorbars but I adore bright colors too much.

I miss these two too. For being such a 'non-canon' couple, there were way to many good moments for me to use. I mean, I didn't even get to work in their fight scenes as much as I wanted!

HA, the fishies were a last-minute addition! IT'S CHEESY BUT THEY'RE CUTE.

It doesn't hurt that they have the best scenes- great materials for making banners and icons :D Zutara is visually attractive like that :)

As rabidline pointed out, I love how you didn't even need to edit the pictures to make them rainbowy.

There is a ridiculous amount of love here. For you and the ship. ♥♥♥♥♥♥

Yay! I had a good time working on these. The show does provide a wide range of pretty. (Shh, though I actually pumped up the colors to make it more rainbowy.)

Thank you for the loooove, bb! <3

Those are awesome....I..need one!

I think I'll take the second one!

Beautiful beautiful beautiful. One of the most amazing banners I've seen, and I do say that lightly!:) May I please use #3? I will most certainly credit you.;)

Thank you for making these. :) They sum up everything that is important to me about Zutara. :)

You're welcome! I'm usually trying to capture what I like about Zuko/Katara in the fanworks I make, so I'm glad it worked for you too. I'll never get tired of these two threatening each other and then being really supportive allies. ;) They're just... well-matched. They can take each other on.

Thanks for the comment! That's exactly the thing I like to hear. <3

GORGEOUS! I... I never realized that Zutara had ~*all the colors of the rainbow*~ in it, IN CANON.

Aw, thank you! :)

Zuko/Katara certainly had enough scenes for the whole spectrum! Thank you, end-of-season-three, for all the pretty. <3

I love these. I've snagged #4.

Where did you get the quote from? I might have to borrow those wise words. ;) So I need to know who to credit!
Top: AoGG: A little too much for friendstopazera on November 26th, 2008 09:29 pm (UTC)
Oh! You're right, I meant to credit that quote! It's from the (fantastic) Amelia Peabody book series, specifically The Mummy Case, by Elizabeth Peters. The actual wording is "Marriage, in my view, should be a balanced stalemate between equal adversaries." There isn't any marriage in Avatar, but I think it still applies. ;)

Thanks so much for the comment! <3
Irial: Zutarrairial on November 27th, 2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
Beautiful colour bars! :) I finally decided to grab #4 and will credit. I really like how you didn't have to manipulate the colours and how nicely they flow together. The quote is also a perfect fit.

And the koi fish! :) Those are a cute touch.

OK, I'll stop gushing now. Thank-you for making them available! :)

No, thank you for the gushing! I really appreciate it. :)

I'm glad you thought everything worked! I meant to make different arrangements of scenes but once this "rainbow" came together, I had a tough time changing things! And I <3 those (somewhat cheesy) little koi fish!

Thanks again for the snag/credit!
lunamarie on November 27th, 2008 09:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you for these lovely colorbars.
They're rainbow-y without blinding my eyes.
o uo ~~~ <3

The fishies are cute, too.
Top: AtLA: [Z/K] The mountains divide themtopazera on December 3rd, 2008 08:30 pm (UTC)
Oh, thank you! I love rainbow-y colorbars but I try not to overdo it. I'm glad you thought I succeeded.;)

I couldn't resist the Fishies of Great Balance either. XD

No, thank you! <3 I'm such a perfectionist when it comes to my stuff, LOL, and I haven't had colorbars in my profile in forever, and these were just freakin' fantastic. Since I plan on revamping my profile anyway, I figured why not start with one of these lovelies? :D I love your style as well, so colorful and crisp!

Love <3

I really like the little Yin-Yang fish on some of them. =D And the text is very, very appropriate.

I love love love these!!
Also, love the 'love should be a balanced stalemate between equal adversaries'. WHERE IS THAT QUOTE FROM??
Btw. I'm not watching you/have friended you. You are a gorgeous iconmaker! And can't believe i've never heard of you!! (I've seen your icons before though).
Top: AtLA: [Z/K] The mountains divide themtopazera on January 27th, 2009 08:24 pm (UTC)
Aw, you're so sweet. I wouldn't expect people to have "heard of me" since I just post random batches of icons occasionally. ;) I have to admit, most don't make it off my hard drive. It made me happy to hear that you felt like watching though! Thank you!

The quote, which I should have mentioned in the first place, is adapted from the Amelia Peabody book series by Elizabeth Peters. In the novel The Mummy Case, the aforementioned character remarks "Marriage, in my view, should be a balanced stalemate between equal adversaries." I've always liked that.

Thanks again for the nice comment! <3

No problem!! But I think I have heard of you (or at least seen your icons). They are beautiful and the quotes are awesome!!

Wow, I'm going to have to look up the book the next time I'm at the library. Did you like it?

No problem, your work deserves nice comments!
Top: Bones: I concur. Vehemently.topazera on January 27th, 2009 09:12 pm (UTC)
Heey, I know that icon! ;)

Ooh, yes, I would definitely recommend giving Amelia Peabody a read! The books are historical mystery/romance, set in 1880s Egypt. I would rec them to anyone though because the main character is so awesome. She's a very independent, take charge woman, who keeps up a great witty commentary no matter what she's doing. Plus the romantic pairing is pleasantly combative and challenging, hence my applying a quote to Zuko/Katara. :D The first book in the series is "Crocodile on the Sandbank", by the way. I would definitely read that one first. I often call Amelia Peabody my preferred "beach reading" because it's so fun (and generally lighthearted) to read. <3

May I take several? I shall credit, of course.

I love your icons and colorbars. You are so awesome and great and talented. May I add you?
Top: AtLA: [Z/K] The mountains divide themtopazera on June 28th, 2009 02:06 am (UTC)
Yes, definitely, they are here for the taking! I'm happy to hear you liked them.

Aw, thank you! *blush* You're too kind! Of course, you're welcome to add me. I haven't really been posting about Avatar recently... but the brainstorming thread at katara_zuko is giving me ideas for all sorts of new projects soon! :D
