Protector - ZW'10 - AU by Abayomi Protector - ZW'10 - AU by Abayomi
What's that you say? I just used the Alternate Universe prompt as an excuse to do another Egyptian Zutara piece? Why, that's preposterous! ~cough~
This was very fun to draw. Roman Zuko is such a tasty snack that I may draw him this way again. :D I'm extremely pleased with how this piece turned out; for once, everything turned out like I wanted!

So, Zuko is Roman, the super power of the Western world. Rome has moved into Egypt and is attempting to make it part of their empire. Katara is an Egyptian princess who is trying to keep her country sovereign. Despite the fact that she's supposed to be his enemy, the Roman falls in love with the Princess. But as a weakened Egypt slowly begins to fall to Rome, a zealous general comes to the Egyptian capitol with intentions of capturing it, and the rebellious princess, to take back to Rome as a prize. Zuko and Katara flee together, but are eventually cornered. Zuko holds her protectively and promises that he won't let her be taken.

That was probably way too much back story, but oh well. ^^;

I love how you did an actual AU and not a crossover, (I'm not hating on others peoples art, it's just that the art from this prompt reminded me a lot of the art from last years crossover prompt.) Zuko as a Roman soldier is awesome. ( My AU art has him as a roman soldier too, please don't think I copied, Katara's a Celtic tribe chiefs daughter.) Anyways, I love your Egyptian avatar, especially Toph, she's so sexy!

Heh, thank you! I did notice allot of others doing crossover pieces, and I wanted to steer clear of that. ^^ I'm completely addicted to putting the Avatar characters in Egyptian settings, anyway, so it was the perfect excuse. =p
I like your idea with Katara being a Celt's daughter and Zuko the conquering Roman! ^^
Thank you for all the love, it's most appreciated. :hug:

Their outfits are very nicely designed. Katara looks really pretty here. :) And the back story sounds similar to Cleopatra. I hope it doesn't end as tragically.
