take this however you want, at first it was gonna be the first 'i love you' but then it started to look more like one of them was going to fight and they might never see each other again, blah blah
oh this is toph and sokka from Avatar the Last Airbender btw...
This is what pops into my head.
Her tears run down her cheeks, That wasn't being hidden from the cries from heaven, both watering the earth that held her beloved late husband. She places a hand over her seven month baby bump.
She wasn't a strong solid rock, she was shattered in a thousands of pieces. How do you pick yourself up when you don’t know what piece to start with? The only thing she knew was she didn't know if she could put herself back together again, and be able to be as strong as before.
If she was whole enough to help model a person. Her child...
“I want to be left alone, Sokka” She says, the man stops in his tracks he would never stop being amazed at the fact that she could see more than anyone.
“ I know, but I don’t think you should be”He cautiously kneels down behind her. She turns to face him not bothering to wipe the tears from her eyes.
“ Why, are you here?”
“For you, and the baby... The promise I made.” He says, grabs her arms, giving the a gently squeeze.
“ What promise?” He stares at the shattered woman, He never thought in his life that he would see her so valuable. He wanted nothing more to fix her, or take the breaks, and put them on himself.
“To be there to pick up the broken pieces when he broke your heart.”
(Sokka stared into her eyes looking for any anchor to fasten to.)
(Toph felt his heart racing inside him. She needed to be his stone... His boulder.)
Toph: Go Meathead. (gentle chuckle lest she broke down and cried.)
Sokka: I will always love you, my little Badgermole. (He kissed her so tenderly. She held onto his breath.)
(Sokka slowly let go of her, looked down to hide his tears, and wiped them away as he ran towards the water tribe ship.)
(Toph felt the water on his face as he held her. She tasted the salt when he kissed her. She thought, "Oh, my brave Warrior." Toph cherished every single step Sokka took as she tasted the salt running down her cheeks.)
I already -adore- this ship, I can't even help that, and your art just makes me so happy!
Dude, this has got to be one of my absolute favorite Tokka pictures, and that's saying something! (I look at too much fanart for my own health...) My word, this is beautiful. I mean... Wow.
I can't wait for more art from you. I need to make sure I'm watching you. (I SOUND LIKE A STALKER!!! lol)
