today is traditional Chinese Qixi festval (七夕節), in other words, Chinese Valentine's Day. Here I Wish you a very Happy Chinese Valentine's Day.

so~~~Maiko again~

This is a scene that I always want to draw.
I used to not like Meiko much, but in the very last moment of the last episod, my attitude towards Mei is totolly turned over by this scene, it make me finally realize that the pairing is actully quite adorable~

Also a submition for Sexy Meiko Week:History
for me this is the most sexy Maiko moment ever!!!~

however, I offically become a Meiko fan, is because this fan-made AMV. [link] in this vedio, their tricky/delicate relationship is summared up perfectly, with one of my favorite song :XD: Super Awesome! I just can't stop watching it.~

I changed both character's custom. so Mai could look more like New Fire Lord's girl friend :XD:
and hope you like Mei's new custom I designed, feel tried to see her in gloomy dress all the time.

[Maiko] #02

To all radical Zutarian, Meiko fan, and whatever shipping fan:

I'm sorry for writting this here. and sorry for my poor english. but I really need to say this.

I personally has no bias to any character in the show, I probably present them subjective, but I also can view them in objective way. And I do love every character!

In my 10-years-anime-veiw-history, I've seen too many fans combats, and I use to be one of them. so I understand each of your feeling. but as a senior person in Animation world (sort of), I beg you to think about these two questions:

what's the purpose of watching the show?
why you love the show so much?

because of the amusement? happiness? loving? exciting? passion? touching? ....
if one of above is your answer, than go back to it! why hating, why fighting, that's definitly not something you desire, right? It has no other meaning but hurt youself and other fans.

I know even I said this, those conflicts will never stop, cuz it never has. but at least, please leave me a peaceful space here, just in my tiny gallery. please don't bring those shipping battles here! it's alright to state your interest, but please don't slander others interest here!
The best thing about fanart is it always about love. So as a delicate fanart creator, I really afraid of seeing lots negative energy here. ("those negative energy is bad for your skin!"--Tylee)
PS: negative energy not equal to opposite voice-- Any critique, suggestion, advice, character review are warmly welcomed!

last but not least,
I respect all of your pairing, please go ahead, don't stop your love, but please don't stop others love at the same time. Let's contribute our LOVE for the show not HATRED!

All in all, I couldn't be happier if you feel a little enjoy or delight from my poor works, that's the entire purpose for me spend almost all my spare time, energy and emotion to draw them.

thank you all and king regards

I do adore the picture, but I must talk about your large description about shipping wars as well, because it is very true. I love the show because of its character and story developments, and not just the romance. As a Kataang and Maiko shipper, I don't go to Zutara pictures and start a fight in the comments (in fact, I usually avoid Zutara overall). And even if I get a little frustrated over others' opinions, in the end I do show a little respect for them.

Speaking about shipping, I never like to be completely biased over shippings I don't like; I always want to find something good in a pairing, and learn to like it.

I shipped lke million couples throughout this show, i even ound maiko cute ever since i knew she liked zuko and as so shy as a kid. Still, since zuko is my bby, i was protective and wasn't sure about her until she saved him from Azuula. That's when i accepted her as a suitable choice, though overall they are a meh couple to me. Tht being aid, your fanart is gorgeous, i love mei's hair.
