Commish: Zuko/Toph

ds_hina does some of the best shippy!art in the Avatar fandom IMO.

Since I had yet to get a really super shippy embrace of my OTP, I asked her last year if she'd be willing to draw Zuko and Toph having a moment. She sent the final colored piece today and I'm all spastic from Teh Awesomesauce:

I adore the lighting and how Toph's gaze doesn't quite meet Zuko's eyes but its such a close thing *_* Just, YAAAY
Thanks <3 This was one of the earlier pieces from 2009 and seeing it in color today had me all "!!!!" since the mood went from lovely to <3
I used to constantly worry that a shippy piece would make everyone think "OOC!" immediately but DS-Hina does it so darn well *_*
This is such a rare pair that any squee over the shippy art makes me all \o\o/o/ Glad you like it!
I love hoe battle ready and yet elegant Toph looks. And their very caring expressions on each other faces <3
