Zhao...wondering is he's hit a spot of "soft ice", or something else. No time to think about it though, polar molebear attack!!

I just found your lj, and ohmygosh, you have so many more Zhao pages up here than on DA!!! *grins like a fool as she catches up on readin' them*

I think Zhao has made a hostile takeover of the LJ space. Hope you enjoy!

Ooh.... I wonder if he'll accidentally firebend out of fear for his LIFE.

Tempting, tempting...but that would be too easy.
And I'm all about making life difficult for him, hehehe *evil*

Oh, very nice. I'm not sure who to cheer on, Zhao or the molebear. :)

It's so cute! "Whatchoo doin' up here?" Bad human, bad human, not falling! Rar!

*yays for more of this, and admires the 4 Avatar projects running at once! wow.*

The AU's don't have the priority of the other two, but they offer a sort of "loosening up" exercise, plus a nice break.
And I get to post these :)

Guess you can cheer both at this point. You can cheer the molebear and end Zhao's existence (and I get a break from drawing these, heehee)

I like your depiction of Zhao's "oh shi.." moment..and the molebear's apparent confusion.. and the sounds it makes! " mrf" and "urf" for some reason gives me a feeling it isn't as ferocious as it seems..or maybe I'm just wanting it to suddenly do a jig...
rufftoon
Jun. 7th, 2007 03:14 pm (UTC)
Haha, Molebears aren't Bosco bears- they don't jig.
And they roar when they feel like it (which may be happening soon- that human lunch is harder to catch than it thought and it is frustrating)

Like I said earlier I don't want to speculate on the coming events, but wow...he's gonna have to get out of that pit or die again. T__T

And before I woke up this morning I had a 30 minute Avatar dream, it was freaky! Aang was actually in the 3D modern world as in I had to chase him down I need him to rescue someone (I think it was Zuko, cause he had been kidnapped). I even saw Appa flying! I got a bit freaked out after waking up. >_> We're all bitten by the Avatar bug!
rufftoon

Nuthin' bad in speculatin'...
but your assessment of the situation is perfectly right-get out of there or die! (oh yeah, and find food or you won't make it back either).

That is one cool dream! Sweeet. I just had a dream about office work. Paper stacking stuff. Blah!

Wow, you know....the look on Zhao's face in the third panel of the second page...I FIND MYSELF FEELING VERY BAD FOR HIM!

*eagerly anticipates next instalment*
rufftoon
Jun. 7th, 2007 03:32 pm (UTC)
Ah, Zhao- he gets almost huggable when he's confused by what's going on ;)
Looks like I'm getting these pages done by little leaps. More coming soon, though maybe not tonight- may go see the movie Paprika! *happy jig*

Yes! The firebending is coming back XD I like the ways the hands look in these pages!

Two real avatar projects, in addition to all these AUs? You'd better watch out, one of these days you're going to wake up and find out you've turned into the avatar.
rufftoon
Jun. 7th, 2007 03:23 pm (UTC)
My hands still suffer from the "close fist" syndromes. I need to loosen up some more.
Wake up to find I've become the Avatar? Master of four projects at the same time juggling?
Naaaaaah.
Though at this rate, I might wake up and find I've become Zhao
...

Ok, still no sideburns.

But I love those fists! My very favorite (yes I have a favorite) is the one Zhao makes in the 'some lovin tonight' panel of the last Shipping Wars strip... its so chubby and hilarious XD

Well, if you become Zhao at least he'll be alive again? Hehe, a somewhat poor consolation ...
rufftoon
Jun. 9th, 2007 06:12 pm (UTC)
I guess I can't help making fists for the characters, as it is what my hands do at rest. Translates into drawings, I suppose.

If I become Zhao...hmmm...let's see how many cities I could conquer in a few weeks! Mwahaha!

Avatar everywhere!
Now Avatar is really everywhere! It's now showing in Canada, on either Vrac-TV or Teletoon.
rufftoon
Jun. 7th, 2007 03:15 pm (UTC)
Re: Avatar everywhere!
I know it plays on YTV.
If it plays on Vrak or Teletoon, even better!
(Though I hate the french dub- Aang doesn't sound like a kid, and Toph is super wimpy)

It's undoubtably wrong that I find the molebear on the second page, second to last panel, Really CUTE. ^___^ It's adorable! Just, y'know, with sharp pointy claws.

And ooooooh, Zhao! "soft ice" indeed. heh.
rufftoon
Jun. 7th, 2007 03:19 pm (UTC)
When one thinks about it, there's a lot of large predators that are really cute in real life- though they have a tendency to eat you. Real polar bears are cute, and tigers...
As for Zhao- not ready to absorb the fact that he has much to do with firebenders...yet. Despite his theories about his past.

I'm sorry, but that molebear is just adorable. ^_^
rufftoon

Hey, molebears can be cute. From a distance.
Up close, they're just a bunch of teeth, claws and hungry stomach.

I love the translation, such a nice touch!
rufftoon

Thank you!
Couldn't help the translation bit- felt like it needed that little extra thing more :)

Oh wow-- I just found your LJ (I've followed you through deviantART for some time) and am now speedily reading through the Zhao AU!

I hope you don't mind if I friend you because I'd like to keep track of the comics! ^__^

rufftoon
Jun. 8th, 2007 02:06 am (UTC)
Welcome aboard- looks like I'll be posting the Zhao thing over here exclusively. I'm touched that you like my little fan ramblings enough to want to follow them. Thank you!

Well, it doesn't hurt that you've got the inside scoop!

Also, I noticed that you're planning on heading down for Comic-Con (on the Avatar_Fans LJ comm)-- are you going to be at the meet-up? It should be good fun-- then again, Comic-Con always is (I've been going for years)!

Hope to see you there!
rufftoon
Jun. 8th, 2007 06:08 am (UTC)
Oh, inside scoop means nothing- I'm doing pure fan speculation here :D
Oh yesh, definitely comic-con- will be helping my friends over at the Flight booth. I wil try to be at the meet up, and take as many pictures as I can of the many wonderful costumes.
(no costumes for me though- no skill in making them)

Only time will tell if I'm a skilled multitasker: it will depend if the important work gets done on time ;)

You're pretty much on track for Zhao's fire bending ability- it is buried deep down at the moment, and stress would definitely be a catalyst to let some of it out. We'll see if he can tap into it more consciously at some point :)

It's okay, Zhao, I think it just wants to play...
rufftoon
Jun. 8th, 2007 02:11 am (UTC)
Yeah sure...it wants to play with his guts and stuff. And maybe roll around his chopped off head on the snow like a ball (sheesh, dark images here! Ouch!)
ambrmerlinus
Jun. 8th, 2007 02:17 am (UTC)
Also, emergency firebending for the win! Zhao must be so confused by now.

I particularly like the shots in this piece. It's a nice array of angles and spacing but still attains a nice sense of solidity along with a wonderful narration. The mroe I read, the more I come to love Zhao!

Another polar molebear traslantion: "Why's dinner taking so long?!"

Polar Molebear cooking tips #5:
Fling your food around. If it still sticks to the wall, it's not quite ready yet.

You are a MACHINE, Rufftoon! how you stay so productive, I'll never know!


I don't know who is cuter in these last two pages...the molebear or Zhao. Probably Zhao. At least he won't bit your head off....maybe.
rufftoon
Jun. 9th, 2007 06:14 pm (UTC)
...and just like a machine, I have no life ;)
That's how I keep productive: I don't do much beside draw draw draw...catch a few movies once in a while.

You should be wary of Zhao biting your head off. HE may not be successful, but he may very well try!
