I had been pretty absent in the world of fan works for quite some time, I admit, but as some of you may already know, I have started writing a new fan fiction. This time, it is a foray into the world of The Legend of Korra.
I have started writing this fan fiction a day after the finale–which, I enjoyed immensely, feeling me with both a bittersweet and melancholic feeling. I loved the world of Avatar. I loved that universe’s mythos and the pain-staking detail the creators have put in the world so diverse in culture and beliefs, especially for a western-type of cartoon. I suppose that–and the finale–is what made me want to write for the fandom. Well, and the fact that I am a Korrasami shipper.
Anyways, unlike my usual modus of posting my fan fiction on FFN, I had opted to post it on AO3 instead. I have also made use of a different pen-name than the one people have familiarized as mine (a pen-name that I will be using more frequently now). I don’t really remember what my reason was for not making use of the fanworks archive I have been a part of for (more or less) 13 years…and I am not saying I won’t be uploading the story on FFN (because I will be), but I just did. I posted the fan fiction on January 5, 2015.
My first Legend of Korra (and Korrasami) fan fiction is set on an alternate universe where the world knows nothing of bending and where the Avatar–the human incarnation of the Lord of the Spirits, Raava–is the sole person who can do such a feat. In this universe, Asami is a brilliant, young, engineering student–a Prodigy–whilst Korra retains her status as being the Avatar, though raised in a different manner than how the prime/original universe has it.
This story takes on a different approach on how things would have been had the events in the series transpired differently; had the characters encountered events in their lives different from how they originally did; and if they were born and raised differently.
Currently, the story has eleven chapters (and is on-going, as well as frequently updated). If you are interested in reading it, you can find it here.
