Firefly Zutara by Irrel Firefly Zutara by Irrel
Firefly/ATLA crossover. Again! I think people like to commission me for it :P

Done for ~tinmiss1939 for her generous donation to the Pakistan flood relief funds :)

I see Zutara more as Simon/Kaylee myself (despite my dislike of the couple XD). How about you?

I appreciate the art and I really enjoy what you did and it looks great but please don't mind my little take on who should be who. Just wanna put my thoughts out for the convos.

I think Zuko's more like Simon since they both are very formal, very quiet about their feelings, have both have lost an easy and amazing life, and they both have super crazy sisters. xD
Suki is most like Inara because they come from elusive organizations that have trained them very well in their respective arts. Also, they both have an air of respect and aren't always a part of the crew's adventures. This then makes it easy to cast Ty Lee as that tricky red-head who tried to marry Mal in the episode called "Our Mrs. Reynolds". This assumes that Mal is Sokka, which I adore.

And Aang? Umm, how about Sherherd Book? LOL and then Toph is Jayne. :) ( Mal and Jayne butt heads a lot hence Sokka and Toph comparison) Okay I'm calming down now so I'll stop here haha but really cool job Irrel~! :D

Before I ever saw the title for this piece of art I knew the reference and was squealing. I love it! I love it! I love it!
I don't know, I think Zutara works well as Mal and Inara. I can see Katara being like both Inara and Kaylee for different reasons, she has the beauty and grace of Inara while having Kaylee heart worn on her sleeve quality as well as being kind to all. Zuko is very much Mal, but he does have Simon's inability to speak to girls, saying the wrong things while trying to be romantic and so on.
Toph would be a combo of Jayne, Zoe and River. Sokka would be Wash with maybe a little bit of Jayne thrown in and Aang? Aang is like... I know this has been said before, but he really is like a male version of Kaylee with maybe so Wash thrown in for his humor. Lol
Anyway, great pic! Keep up the great work!

OMG! Perfect combo!

My heart gave a little skip when I saw this. Not because I really think Katara is much like Inara, or Zuko like Mal--but just because they look so cool. And because Inara is dark-haired and gorgeous with pretty clothes and Katara is dark-haired and gorgeous with pretty clothes. She looks lovely here. And yep, Zuko and Simon do share the bond of hyper-awkwardness.

Simon/Kaylee is more like Katara/Aang, with Aang as Kaylee and Katara as Simon

I really can see it as Mal and Inara. Mostly Zuko as Mal, protecting those they love, being negative-nelly a lot of the time, and the whole honor thing. But Katara as Inara, it's harder, but there are some similarities. Like, and please excuse any mistakes I have made or will make (haven't seen Firefly in a while), Inara's... ugh, what's the word? They both have a very kind personality in general... umm, caring, loving. Mal/Inara and Zutara are both filled with lots of yelling and unresolved feels :D Sorry, I had this huge thing, but can't figure out how to word it.

Zuko as Simon just puts me in a stump. I see it, but just barely. Kaylee and Katara I do see, though. :)

Firefly zutara crossover great idea I'm lovin' it!!
fairycloud22 Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2012
Why does Zuko look just as (if not more) attractive in clothes that totally wouldn't mesh with the Avatar world? Like, who would have thought that he looked hot in space cowboy WESTERN duds? 8D *is a cowboy-boot-wearing horse-riding country girl and is totally turned on by this*
Delphi-is-Script Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012  Hobbyist
... so much yes.
weasleygirl27 Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2012
Great idea! Despite how... sexual Inara is and how not sexual Katara is, I can't see her as Kaylee. She's a fighter, but she won't get her hands dirty if she can help it- she's a little too girly XD It's hard to match them up, but I see Toph as either Jayne or Kaylee. I don't know ):

Awesome work on this :D

Zuko is totally Mal - the exile
Suki is Zoe, his badass second
Sokka is Wash - Highly capable at what he does, obsessed with dinosaurs
Toph is Jayne. Nuff Said.
Katara is Inara, deadly but graceful and smart
Aang is River, in stasis and woken up to a strange new world. Prone to violent outbursts. And Visions.
Iroh is Book, the wise Shepherd

Which fits, I think
