If you’re going to read just one wonderful Adventure Time write-up today (and you should), make it this one by Maria Bustillos. In it, she talks with the key creative gang of Pen, Adam, Pat, Kent, Rebecca, Nick, and Jack, making for a fairly definitive overview of the series. Read it here. Thanks, Maria!

The resolution of each eleven-minute episode is anything but tidily triumphant; each one is as likely to end on a question or a joke as on an answer. Yet one comes away satisfied, a little bit the way one might at a David Lynch movie. The narrative is endlessly malleable, and includes all the possibilities granted by the existence of wizards and magical creatures, time travel, and a huge, ever-evolving cast. It’s a canvas and a story big enough for dozens of artists to make their own way. Even the drawing style is inconsistent, handmade-feeling; longtime fans may learn to detect the hand or voice of a favorite storyboard artist or writer. The goal of the show seems to be exploration, not uniformity.

Little snippets from my Zutara fic, Provenance (chapters 1 and 2). The first is what I feel like the Southern Water Tribe looks like at this point (they moved to higher ground after the war ended apparently) and the second is when they are leaving the docks and Katara collapses in the path.

I’ll hopefully keep doing this with upcoming chapters as well—draw select scenes. If anyone ever wants to vote for a scene to be drawn in the future, you can comment on the story on Fanfiction.Net, or send an ask here on tumblr! :D
