SRU - Not Alone by SoraNamae SRU - Not Alone by SoraNamae
Commission: SRU!Katara for Avatar AU :icons-r-u:

“We read to know that we are not alone.”
- C.S. Lewis

Taking commissions: [link]

So, this is the 2nd in a series of 3 pics featuring the Avatar characters Toph, Katara and Smellerbee

Obviously this one is about Katara, and it has a whole literature theme, so I wanted it to really have that paper texture and sepia tone etc

Now only Smellerbee left ^^

When I see the title of this piece, it reminds me of this K-Pop song I used to listen to. And the lyrics kind of speak with what you are portraying through this. Great job :)

"Love is just an object, a thing. Somethimes it isn't even real. A myth. Now Hate is something that is real. It's used to fight for something. It's in more terms then Love. Hate is like revenge." Lilian said looking out the window. Daniel and everyone looked at her. Even Mychel.

"What?" Daniel asked.

"Your fighting for Love. Love cause wars and bloody battles. Hate comes from love. It's a type of revenge. Love is the cause of all of this. Don't you see? Were all better off not even loving someone. your just going to get hurt." Lilian said lookign at Daniel. She looked hurt.

"Lilian. You do know I saved you out of Love. If I havn't loved you, then you wouldn't be here." Mychel said walking over to her.

"Right. Then I wouldn't be dying. Becuase of you I would have died along ith my family. but you had to save me from the wolf." Lilian looked like she was about to cry. "I was better off dead Mychel!" she yelled and ran out the room...

And why are there pages and books flying? And why do people in Avatar have super powers?

So many questions... I guess "fantasy" doesnt exist in your vocabulary :lol:

Touche, but there is such a thing as an internally consistant mythology, and last I checked Katara wasn't a bookbender. =P

As indicated in the description, this is a commission for my Avatar AU :icons-r-u: which is serialized story in a modern day college setting. Katara is big into literature and reading, she's studying to be an English teacher.

In the last pic for this, he drew SRU!Toph who is still blind but has an uncanny natural talent with music. Aang studies art, Sokka's into history, Zuko's into poli-sci, etc. I promise it's not as cliche as it sounds like that (it's an original story, not a re-telling of TLA), but I hope that explains the concept of the pics. =)

You can see more of the gallery here:

Alternate Universe concepts involve maintaining consistency while doing something different at the same time. ;)

Ah, so then this is more conceptual and figurative than literal.

so this AU doesn't have the bending powers?
Reply
:icondestiny-smasher:
Destiny-Smasher Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
It's both. It's literal because Toph is a musician and Katara loves literature.
It's conceptual because of how the image is designed.

The AU is a real-life, modern-day college setting with an original plot inspired by things in A:TLA. It's very hard to explain, honestly, but no, taking away the bending powers puts the entire narrative focus on the characters themselves and developing them from late teens into adults.
