for lack of a more creative title.
Katara <3 

So this started out as a random sketch during class,.... but i liked it ;P

then it turned into a murderous undertaking,
that water drove me insane =w=
and then I was persuaded by some fellow deviants to add a background of some sort, which i had not planned (and I suck at unplanned backgrounds! XD)
If i could bend an element I would probably be a water bender~ Ive always thought that anyway, or Air maybe... however, after I lost several hours work on this, I was very much more like an explosive angry firebender XD eheh...heh...heh... OTZ

ssooooOOOOoOOOo I may touch this up later but... HERE! take it! Dx
Katara is from Avatar: The Last Airbender - if you havent seen it you're missing out, 
the story telling and character is much better than Korra- this is the original shtuff! (but i love Korra too dont get me wrong xD)

oh! and thanks to =MLeth and ~Amylrun for giving me advice/help on this!

A question I can't find any answer to..?  Maybe you know..?  I hope you know...

I was 16.. I fell 25 feet to a large pointy boulder, which connected to my spine, snapping it in half 100%..  I managed to do the required mind to make my spine be reattached at the breaksite, but about 15-degrees rotated, which eventually gave me IR & UV vision, and heart & adrenals be on call.. When I finally got standing, I noticed movement in my left peripheral.. A tall black-shrouded creature.. Looking like "the grim reaper", moving in "folds in the air".. It would vanish into a fold, then reappear on the outer of the next fold having moved forward  a foot at each fold, from air-fold to air-fold..?  Is that "air-bending"..?

The five mile walk home knocked me unconscious for a second, each and every step, from the extreme pain ("like fire in my back").. Negotiating curbs was extremely painful, almost impossible.. It was all quite the experience, something akin to "visiting hell itself", or maybe worse..  I walked past two hospitals, knowing they would only make me into a paraplegic with their childish uneducated meddlings..  Only 80 years ago the medical industry used to frighten infections away by tapping infections with alcohol soaked turkey feathers dipped in colourful rock powders, in copying North American first nation shaman healers chasing away demons with feathers and chants..
I got home, got to bed, locked myself into the least painful position, and slept ("hibernated") 43 hours straight.. I can still lift 300 pounds and walk with it.. but thinking on it makes it sting like fire where my spine had been severed years ago.. like it stings right now...

Can people do air bending..?  Does the "cosmic ribbon" have anything to do with air bending..?
If I attach a cosmic crystal sword to the end of the ribbon, will it somehow be convinced to slice a steel lamp post in two, and take demon's heads..?  What be the very primary core nucleus facet factor of air bending..? your majesty...
Another unsolvable question, your majesty..

Re: "water bending"..

I was parked near where the salmon were jumping in salt water.. I set uo the fishing equipment, and the rubber raft.. Suddenly the tide changed.. The sea became rough and turbulent.. I lost my temper.. I thought "maybe I should explore deep creativity to quell this horrid anger".. I imaged stroking the sun, the moon, the planets, and pulled a sun's solar crystal to me.. I connected to several sources and forces, and made a twenty foot across immaginary hand be caressing the pine trees, with the grain.. I slowly brought the big hand to caressing the tip molecules of the wave peaks.. Suddenly the sea became calm as glass is smooth for a quarter mile all around, and remained so for as long as I held the 6 thought complex focus.. When I realized what I had just done, my legs went rubbery weak, and I fell to the rocks on my butt, hurting, but laughing to tears..
Was that "water bending"..?
