Tokka Week: 7. Promise by Empty-Smile Tokka Week: 7. Promise by Empty-Smile
SPOILERS FOR FINALE IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT

Tokka Week: August 1st - 7st [link]

Theme: Promise

Well, I worked my butt off on this one. All day yesterday and today. *dies*

I thought it only fitting to end on a more serious note for Toph and Sokka. Thank you everyone who have made this week great.

See you all later! *goes to the mountains*

This shows the serious side of Sokka, which people almost never get right. You did. Toph can be scared, and she is very open to Sokka. Well, more open than she is to the others, you know. ;)

Anyway, you got their personalities down to a tee, and this is also a beautiful comic. Gret job. :)

This is a tiny bit OOC, as Sokka isn't really the one to spout spontaneously about spirit stuff. That's more Katara's bag. But, it is cute~

Don't worry, Toph, your parents will come around. You're Toph! You shouldn't be afraid of facing anything.

Very sweet. I really connect with this theme of loving family and finding another, and Toph in particular I feel for because at the end of the series, she doesn't have a "special someone" like everything else does.

I had a lot of fun writing a story exploring that theme and the idea in this little comic. I think it's touching and it's important not to forget that as tough as she acts, Toph IS still a young girl.

Thank you very much!

I probably went into it with opposite intentions of what you went into your writings for, though. I did it more for selfish reasons, haha.

The ending of avatar just felt like they didn't wrap things up as well as they could have, and there was no real final note to leave us on. "We won! The end!" It was too abrupt, and I wanted some sort of reflective moment to bookend the characters to how we found them with how they are at the last episode.

I agree about Toph being somewhat misplaced at the end. She was a really strong character that, like Iroh, ended up being shafted. Iroh was for other reasons, though, so can't help that. Either way, I really appreciate the support! : )

Destiny-Smasher Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I wouldn't say Iroh was shafted. He fixed things with Zuko, the primary person he cared about. He's an old guy, he's lived a good life, I figure. He just wants to take it easy and relax and help Zuko learn the ropes is what I would imagine.

On the other side of the coin, Toph is only 12 in the show. xD She doesn't NEED a boyfriend, it's not like she couldn't meet someone when she's a bit older. So people freaking out like she's destined to be some lonely unloved person is unfounded, too.

Not saying you did that, of course, I just know how the fandom can be and that a lot of it can be self-pandering...This didn't strike me as self-pandering, though - even if it was. xD It seemed legit to me, like something that could happen in the show.

:iconempty-smile:
Empty-Smile Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011
My pandering was a more level-headed one, I guess, hahaha!

Haha, yeah the fans of any series tend to get a little crazy about that stuff. To the point that I question if they remember this stuff isn't for real...

And as for Iroh, I meant more that his role was extremely minimized in the final season and especially the finale. I assume it's largely due to Mako's passing, but I still wish he could have had a grander role than he did.

This is way good i like how you where able to do such a nice situation with out turning it all lovely-dovey. their little chat was pretty cool to.

have a question when are the tokka weeks. i have a lot of art that i need to post or art i want to make but i still dont know where to find those post.

Empty-Smile Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2010
Well, I can't honestly say I know. A friend on devart mentioned to me that she was going to be running the themed week and asked if I would participate. There's not any specific weeks lined up as far as I know.

If you're really interested you might just try finding a club that suits your interests/art you want to post and ask them if they have any plans on doing a themed week in the future that you can participate in.

Oh wow, how have I not seen this before? This is great. Exactly how I imagine a scene between these two would go down after the finale. Toph knows that the gaang was connected by purpose, but what she doesn't realize is that they'll always be connected, even when they all return to their homes or find their own paths to walk.

The two "jokers" needed a serious end. Thanks for this!

I just felt like the ending needed a bit more closure, and this was my means of doing so, lol.

I am still very much a tokka enthusiast, but I've tried to move on in my art. I don't want to stay in one place for too long. haha
Nice group you have going there, though! I recognize some of the members and looks you have some great ones. : )

Yeah we got a great group and I'm always on the lookout for more! Even if you're just an enthusiast thesedays, you're more than welcome to join up! We won't bug you to draw Tokka or anything (unless the inspiration hits you suddenly), and we're more than happy to upload the Tokka works you do have.

It's all about spreading the Tokka Love :love:

I think we've already got a lot of your stuff in our favs...

Anyway, nice chatting with you! Don't be a stranger ;)
