stay flamin'


This is for Dante Basco…I was planning to give this to you for your birthday, but I started it way too early in anticipation, and it seems like you’ve been having a hard time lately, so…I hope it might cheer you up a little, anyway.

I really can’t express how much Avatar–Zuko in particular–has meant to me without writing pages and pages, so I’ll try to be succinct. This is the very first picture I ever drew of Zuko, when I was 10 years old, so you can have a visual representation of what your amazing work with this character has done for me. Drawing was never something I took very seriously until I found a subject–a character–I was passionate about. Then inspiration took hold, and I just couldn’t stop drawing. Zuko’s character resonated with me the way no character had ever done before. Now, ten years later, I’m still drawing him, art is the love of my life, and I’ve been invited to showcase some of my work in 2 public galleries downtown this September. For all of your incredible work, thank you, thank you, and please know that you have made an immense impact on all the fans whose lives have been shaped by Zuko’s journey, and the life you breathed into him. I hope, as much as you’ve done for me over the years, you enjoy this picture at least a bit. (It was supposed to say; “To Dante Basco: Have an HONORABLE Birthday!” in the corner, but my handwriting is so bad, and I decided not to wreck it)


Stay flamin’, Sifu Hotman.

Thank you to who follows me and I hope you continue enjoying my blog as much as I do.

“You are the best and you gotta deal with it!”. With love,


Because it’s the holiday season (and because I recently hit 2.1k), I decided I should do a mini follow forever! I tried to keep it small (hence the word “mini”) so I’m EXTREMELY sorry if I missed anyone! You can always check out my blogroll for any awesome blogs I accidentally left out.

As a final note: I WILL NEVER LEAVE THIS FANDOM! it’ll take a lot more than a finale to get rid of me

Yey! I finally hit 1,00 followers. Now I can leave this hellhole of a website but before I do here’s a list of some of my favourite blogs. I’d like to thank fiirebender for making an amazing banner for me. I love it! I had considered putting some names in bold/italics but I just can’t choose favourites and I just hate the idea of some users getting more attention than others, so here you go.

This happened with at least one of Zuko's public interviews
  • Interviewer: So you, the Avatar, and Councilman Sokka are all friends, yes?
  • Zuko: No not really.
  • *Aang and Sokka emerge somewhere in the background*
  • Aang: Hey Sokka, look who it is!!! YO SIFU HOTMAN!
  • Zuko: .....I don't know who he's yelling at....
  • Sokka: YO JERKBENDER!!!
  • Interviewer: Fire Lord, they're pointing at you
  • Zuko: No theY'RE NOT.
  • Aang&Sokka: STAY FLAMIN' ZUKO
  • Zuko: S H I T.
