Last chibi i draw, sorry for the spam orz.
anyway i post it in the wrong account just copy pasting.
I am re watching Avatar Aangs leyend and I just wanted to create an Open AU with my friends and all uvu
well in the AU they keep being countries and we choose their element : for the geography and the country's culture uvu
I decided to Make Raquel an Earthbender because:
1) its a big miner country 2) we are a great farmer country too 3) the climate is mostly dry, we have one of the hottest deserts in the world 4) the cultures before us have the earth as the biggest resource and admired earth over everything uvu Aztecs for example thought men were made of mud and corn (not so sure if it was mud or other shit--) -- etc etc.
each nation has a different element, there could be one or two elements in one country (only in ex-colonies ,mestizo countries etc), but the country will only master one.
doesn't matter if two nations have the same element, their costumes can vary a lot. For example:
Alfred's a Firebender, Firebender from the US's costume will be inspired in cowboys.
Spain's also a Firebender, but Spanish firebenders will be inspired in other things (el zorro?? matador?? whatever).
but they need to wear red , orange and those colors that represents Fire. yes they can use other colors but in details etc.
In this way every nation will look different from each other <3
and That's why Raquel doesn't look like a traditional earthbender from the series uvu.
Only Earthbenders can wear gold or silver, for being miners or that they can work with metals.
Other countries must buy their decorations from them etc.
Raquel wears lot of silver for being the biggest silver exportator in the world.
another: Countries that are not officially recognized as countries will be non benders.
Im not quite sure what will happen with commonwealths.
Imagine how cool their fights were with only elements tho
