LIGHT ON YOUR FEET by xcgirl08 LIGHT ON YOUR FEET by xcgirl08
Wow, I'm rusty. My computer is also broken, so I can't exactly use my tablet right now. Huzzah for traditional media!

And this will not be the last drawing I upload which falls under the general category of "THIS IS STUPID AND DORKY AND I REALLY DON'T KNOW BUT HERE YOU GO ANYWAY."

Korra and Bolin, dancing some version of a jazz number with Meelo and Ikki: because it's not a proper 1920s universe without the Charleston, of course. Or some bending-inspired variation of it.

(....So, is there a bootlegging problem in Republic City? Do the Triple Threat Triad members essentially function as rum-runners? Do they use submachine guns? Is there a horrific economic depression and/or another war to follow this era?

Most importantly, though, does this mean I will be able to cross my obsessions with Korra and Lackadaisy Cats together? Because I don't know if I could handle that.)

All of the characters you recognize belong to Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, who have once again managed to suck my brain out through my nose and get me invested in a cartoon aimed at a twelve-year-old demographic.

HOW DO YOU GUYS DO IT.

I love Bolin! He and Korra are perfectly okay with acting goofy and playing with little kids, Jinora and Mako need to loosen up. I bet Asami wouldn't have a problem dancing with the kids.

I think the demographic was moved up, since the characters are older and now the creators know that a lot of teenagers like their work. I like how you have the fun-loving kids dancing, while aloof Mako and calm Jinora watch; Jinora looks like she's wondering whether she and Mako will be expected to dance together, and isn't sure if she'g go along with it or not.

So cute. I love how Jinoora's over there with Mako being all not-fun. So what they'd do. XD

Now you've got me thinking about the crime of Republic City... I guess they would run around town knocking over cabbage carts and taping signs to people's back that say "I'm with bender --->"

Ah, you see "rusty" I see magnificent.

Also now I REALLY want to see something like this play out in the show. Bending inspired Charleston would make me happier than is probably okay to admit to most people my age (outside of fandom anyway). And I bet my boots and Korra's that Bolin's absolutely perfect with Tenzin's kids.

Seriously great job. I love everything about Korra and Meelo and Ikki and Bolin and even Mako and Jinora up there in the corner wondering why their siblings are so strange.

Hmmm.... Korra characters transformed into cats? The Lackadaisy characters bending? A whole new world has now opened up with that comment!

Seriously though, I love this pic. I hope they have something like this happen in an episode!

And I hear you about Mike and Bryan-- I'm almost 23 years old and I have a baby on the way and yet I love Avatar. HOW DO THEY DO IT????
