Zutara - Balance by Aranehl Zutara - Balance by Aranehl
Check out my other zutara pieces: [link] [link] [link]


Yin: female, water, night, cold, south, left

Yang: male, fire, day, hot, north, right

Zuko and Katara's relationship is about balance. A friend of mine cant stand "zutara" because she says water and fire dont mix, their are opposites, it could never work! Well male and female are opposites and she doesnt let that keep her away from her boyfriend ^_~. my point is: in times of peace, the fact that he is fire nation and she is water tribe means nothing. the war is over. And together they balance eachother. Like the season finale of book 1. Zuko tells katara "you rise with the moon, but i rise with the sun" the conflict between them was because of the war, not who they were as people.

this is my big arguement. and if you are kataangers: we get it you already won, so there really isnt any point in arguing with me. the series is over and i'm just indulging in a little zutara photoshop fun. i wanted to put out there that maybe this is part of the reason we were drawn to a match like katara and zuko, it wasnt impossible...just improbably considering how far her relationship with aang grew over three seasons, there was no TIME for katara to develope far enough of a relationship with zuko. thats all...

"Balance" art (c) MINE!

[edit:] thank you to ALL of the :+fav:s you are all amazing! and i also wanted to add that the lineart is here in case anyone wants to have some fun and color it! :aww: [link]

This is beautiful! It took me a second glance to realize you'd worked the yin-yang symbol into this piece. Your artwork is lovely.

I really like this, but I think I would like it better is the symbol was black and white like it normally is. And I think the gray edges detract from the whole painting. I do LOVE the fire/water circles. And I adore symbolism.

:aww: thank you. I'm not a strict shipper either, I think Kataang is just as sweet. I just think Zutara was a little more emotionally mature than they wanted to go for with the younger audience :meow: (not that war and genocide wasn't pretty mature content for young audiences though right?) thanks again, glad you like it. Always nice to meet people with open minds, and just plain Avatar fans!

Wow. You're description for the art was perfect. I feel the same way about Zutara. My friend is also a Kataanger and she despises the fact that I am a Die-Hard Zutara fan. I just feel like if they were to have had more time to develop a stronger friendship, that it could've turned into something bigger and better. Plus, I feel like they balanced each other out better than her and Aang did. Just my thoughts.

Thank you so much, I appreciate the love, I'm glad you like it :meow: I think they decided from the very beginning who was going to end up with who without considering the personalities THEY gave the characters haha katara and aang never had any tension, or chemistry, nothing. well, thanks again. Hope you enjoy The Legend of Korra, first episode and I'm hooked. take care! :aww:

did you know it was gonna be Zutara first....but the romance was going to be a bit more mature so they had to tone it down to get the younger audience....*growls* stupid kids...=.=

This is probably my favorite image of Zutara that I've found on deviantart. I love the yin/yang thing, and how they're laying in the yin/yang pose. I love the colors, the pose, the kiss on the forehead, and just about everything else. It's quite lovely. :)
