Gaangsters by justcallmefaye Gaangsters by justcallmefaye
Yes, the title is a horrible pun. But I couldn't resist.

So this is the product of my random, tangential state of mind. It went something like this: "Huh, I seem to like things that come in groups of four--the elements, suits in cards...hee, that's funny, Hearts are like Fire, Spades are like Earth...I guess Water, or Ice, is like Diamonds, leaving Air to be Clubs...oh my god, I need to draw the Gaang as gangsters!!!!1" And that was that, as they say. ^^; Why suits in cards equal gangsters is another question for...um, never.

I could write a story on this picture now. I'll refrain, but here's some more randomness to entertain.

Zuko, King of Hearts: The de facto leader of the hit squad Elemental Trace. Chain smokes and carries a pair of Desert Eagle .50AE handguns, and doesn't like to be reminded of his father or sister, both of whom are heavily involved in the Phoenix Syndicate.

Toph, Ace of Spades: The go-to girl when you want things destroyed in a very obvious fashion. Never takes off her aviators, and favors an AK-74 outfitted with a GP-34 40mm grenade launcher. Also likes setting mines, bombs, and other things that go "boom".

Aang, Jack of Clubs: The negotiator. Objects to violence as a method of getting things done, as he prefers to persuade with words and winsome grins, but carries an FN Herstal Browning 9mm (with double safety feature) just in case things get ugly. Pictured here juggling a grenade because we all know how Aang likes to juggle. :D

Katara, Queen of Diamonds: The sniper. Unlike Toph, you'll never see Katara's kills coming--either she's 500 yards away with her Arctic Warfare Super Magnum rifle, or you're too busy staring at her to realize she's just pulled her Glock Model 29 from her thigh holster and plugged you between the eyes.

Howzat for overly in-depth? That's what I get for being a writer first and an artist second. Hee.

Geez, after all that, I really hope you guys like this! It was a bit of an undertaking... :faint:

Woah. This needs to be an AU. I know you kind of have a lot of fanifcs but please make this one. I need more of this. Toph's face alone totally sold me.

the idea has rolled around my head, but...that's a lot of years of rolling, aha. if it ever settles down and becomes more concrete, i'll definitely write it. i'd like to dabble in the Avatar-verse again. :)

That's Toph!?! *eyes and mouth go wide* I thought that was Sokka!! *shakes head in disbelief before sighing* Oh well, anyway, love... her... picture, it's epic! Though I really would've preferred either Sokka or Zuko in her place there.

then you're probably the only one. she otherwise seems quite popular and readily identifiable.
