First off, welcome :iconaveytra: as Co-Founder of this group! :la: Now that I have someone with experience to keep me in line and we can really get this canoe floating.

Other positions are available! We are currently looking for at least two more Co-Founders to help organize art, hold contests, give ideas, etc. Co-Founders have as much power as the Founder. The only difference is that you don't sound as cool as I do. :dummy: No experience running a group is necessary. I never ran one before, either. So we can fail together~ :tighthug: If interested, please send me or Aveytra a Note. We look forward to hearing from you!

Position of Contributor will become available as we get more members.

And now with that out of the way...

:love::blackrose:MAITARA SHIPPING MONTH!!:blackrose::love:

Because it feels appropriate, October is Maitara Shipping Month and what better way to kick off the group than with some prompts to get you guys as ridiculously excited as we are? :giggle: You can submit anything, art, fics, Mai and Katara cupcakes, whatever works for the prompt. At the end of the month, we will vote on submissions to be placed in the Featured gallery. The number of submissions eligible for this little contest will depend on how many overall submissions and members we get, so submit, submit, submit!! It's unlimited, take advantage of it! :la:

You may submit any prompt in any order. You can do a few, most, or all of them, and you can do more than one submission for the same prompt! This is mostly just for fun and to promote the new group, so please, go nuts with it! :iconlawooplz: You can also take as much time as you need on these so don't worry if you're still submitting these up until next October. Just please know that art submitted after midnight November 1 will NOT be eligible for the contest.

The Sugar Queen and the Queen of Darkness

Yoness and welcome to Dark Sugar, a humble little group dedicated to the personal relationship between Katara and Mai from Avatar: the Last Airbender. Perhaps you can see the potential dynamics in their interactions, either in canon or your head. Perhaps you are very interested in seeing how these two become friends post-series, and maybe something a little more. Or perhaps you think that whole Zutara vs. Maiko thing would be much better off if the Zu- and -ko weren't involved at all. Whatever tickles your fancy, all you know is that Mai and Katara interacting together somehow, someway gives you warm fuzzies. So sit back, relax, and enjoy! All we ask in return is to follow these simple little rules and guidelines to make your experience easier. Because when your experience is easier to handle, that means less work for me and more I get to sleep.

:blackrose:Rules, Guidelines, and Other Formalities:blackrose:
|x| You must be a member in order to contribute to this group. What's the fun in being a part of a group if you don't have the option to partake in the festivities? Memberships are automatically approved, so you're just one click away from becoming a Maitara freak like the other cool kids! :la:

|x| Submit to the proper folder! Fanfiction goes in fanfiction, Maitara art goes in the Maitara folder, a sweet pic of Mai turned into a rock star goes in her own folder, and that ridiculous pic of Zuko freaking out over his future season self doesn't belong here at all.

|x| Save the shipping wars for an ocean that cares. We don't hate Zutara here or Maiko or Kataang or any other ship for that matter. We are our own little canoe floating along and minding our own business. Key word being canoe. Don't pick fights with bigger ships, particularly those that are equivalent to aircraft carriers. You won't win.

|x|Follow dA TOS and blah blah. In other words, use common sense, love each other, respect all Nature, and for once I'm not being sarcastic about it. Seriously, guys, we will have much more fun if we get along and behave like adults.

Art Guidelines

|x| This group is dedicated to Maitara only. Just as it says, everything from platonic friendship to deep love and everything in between is acceptable.

|x| Katara and Mai fighting over Zuko is not acceptable.

|x| Mai threatening to badtouch Katara for touching Zuko is. :evillaugh: A bit of a darker example, but I'm sure you get my drift.

|x| Contributions with multiple partners are acceptable. Ex: Mai x Katara x Zuko or Jet x Mai x Katara. OT3+s need love, too~

|x| Art featuring Katara or Mai by herself is acceptable. However, if Katara happens to be hugging an Aang plushie, that is Kataang and belongs elsewhere. If she happens to be hugging a Mai plushie, I demand to know where she got it from.

|x| Fanfiction must be Maitara. Other ships and characters may be present, but Mai and Katara must both be the main focus.

Submissions are open and unlimited! But wait a minute now, slow down, let's not get carried away here. I know you guys are excited, I am, too, but this little fun fact is subject to change, especially if too many submissions are being put in the wrong folders or don't belong here at all. Please think about what you're doing before you hit the "submit" button and we will keep things free and open.

:blackrose: Thank you for joining! Let's work together to turn this canoe into a sailboat! :blackrose:

:blackrose:Folder Guide:blackrose:

|x| Featured: A little bit of everything. DO NOT SUBMIT TO THIS FOLDER! Only artwork that portrays uniqueness, effort, suggested by other members because of uniqueness and effort, and contest winners go into this folder.

|x| Maitara: Mai x Katara, together either in friendship or romance.

|x| Mai: Mai ONLY.

|x| Katara: Katara ONLY.

|x| OT3+: Mai and Katara with another partner or two.

|x| Fanfiction: Pictures may say a thousand words but sometimes we like to know what those words are.

|x| Crafts and Fun Stuff: Plushies, cakes, embroidery, keychains, etc...

|x| Graphics: Icons, stamps, desktops, etc...
