Happy Halloween! We hope it was spooky (or spoopy) enough for everyone! Ours was great, reading all these awesome submissions. The authors definitely went for a Halloweeny feel, and we can tell! Unfortunately for us, we have to try and choose a winner.
It was a close call, but this month, we've decided to crown , with his , as the winner. His oneshot was up to his usual quality (ie. absolutely amazing) and we really enjoyed it. The transitions seemed a little sudden at times, but the overall spookiness was fantastic!
The other three were close. We loved – the first person really added to the chills, and though it wasn't a fast start, it was a horrifyingly satisfying ending! has all the aesthetics needed for an atmospheric Halloween story, …Read more >
Hello all fanon portal authors! The time has come for another one of our contests!
It has certainly been a while since our last contest, hasn't it?
Just a little under three years, but who's counting?Anyway, I'm very happy to announce that we're back with a new prompt we'd like to see you all try! Since it is October, a month known for the famous holiday Halloween, we were thinking it would be nice to make this month's prompt "spooky themed"! Take "The Puppetmaster" for example - that was spooky.
Feel free to write anything you come up with, but key points that will be evaluated are going to be:
- Overall spookiness.
- Grammar, spelling.
- Between 2000 - 4000 words.
For those of you who don't remember, this story can be a one-shot or a chapter of one o…Read more >
Looking for a good fanon? Here's an official review of the talented Kyoshidude's story, Gods of War!
Working for the FRS was the first spark to set off every random thing I do on this wiki. I don't remember being punctual back in 2012, either, so today's tardiness probably surprises no one #_# That being said, the author I'm featuring today deserves every bit of praise for his writing prowess and patience. Let's hit the scores!
*Scores are based on a scale from 0 to 10. If you'd like your own fanon reviewed, see here for availability.
Who should read this fanon?
- Classic fans of the Avatar series and adventure. The fanon captures all that's beautiful about the series and more.
Reviewer's word of advice:
- Remember that every character counts! Make yo…

Well hello fello wikians.
As you might know, I finished half a month ago the first book of my fanfiction, Book One: Metal. I know it's not being read by many people, but that's not going to stop me from continuing writing it. Even so, "" simply started as a fun writing exercise to help me express myself through writing, and I have developed incredible abilities on how to handle characters.
At least, thats what some people who gave me feedback in real life have told me it's something not many writers get right, and not many writers get to have many likeable characters as I do (they even liked my character Tao, who I tried to make unlikeable on purpose to be honest). Let's face it, even Bryke themselves had some problems with handling characte…Read more >

Bomochu here, back again with the second instalment of the review for the Literature of the Duchy of Skibbington. Last time, we looked at five unique and diverse one-shots, so without further ado, let’s have a look at the remaining four shall we?
No Bending in Class
Well, I have to say that the premise for this story is not one I think I've ever seen. This AU has original characters, but instead of taking canon characters and putting them in a new environment this story takes the idea of bending, and brings it into our world.
The story has a promising start, beginning with two classmates, Nick and James (the later the narrator), accidentally setting a hanky on fire and freezing it somehow during class. Later, the two theorise that the…

'Tis the Holiday Season!
Well, what can I say? We're not dead yet! Surprise!!!
In all seriousness, though, I deeply apologize for the 13-month hiatus. There have been dedicated users year-round who stayed with us and wrote for this issue, so we would like to give them a huge thanks for their time and passion for contributing! We wouldn't have been able to come back without you. Consider this your Christmas gift from our lovely, creative community!

Hello fellow fanon readers and writers. For today I will be reviewing , the brainchild of our own , one of the fanon community’s most prolific members. There is not much to update on my end this time, apart from the fact that my schedule remains pretty busy and looks like it will for some time to come. Nevertheless, I will make an effort to keep my reviews coming as often as possible for the benefit of the authors and users on here, as my schedule allows for it.
In an ancient time where the world looked very different, where the northern coasts were lined with sheets of ice and glaciers, there stood a small Water Tribe settlement in the north known as Manirak. And in this village lived a 14-year-old girl named Miki, who after a tragic ac…Read more >
Hello fanon portal-ers. I’m putting up this blog for the benefit of those I have already written reviews for and those whom I might write reviews for in the future. Basically, I wanted to give some explanations of the categories that I use to review fanons, why I have them on my list and how I calculate scores. Of course, some of the categories intertwine with others at times, so they cannot all be considered to be mutually exclusive. This is especially the case when the same thing causes deductions in multiple categories, and the same reasoning might need to be repeated on the fanon review. Hopefully this should make things more transparent for my reviewing and also shed some light on what I believe to be quality writing in general.

Hello again fanon portal-ers. Well, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Real life has been in a wee bit of a hectic transition lately, so that’s made keeping up with a lot of stuff rather difficult. Nevertheless, I feel that I have delayed this new review for a long time in particular. This is, in part due to my schedule and also due to the abundance of categories and scores involved, being another collection of one-shots. In the future, I shall do my best to see that my fanon reviews are completed within a reasonable time frame, so that I don’t find myself in the awkward position of publishing reviews for authors who have long left the wiki. Anyhow, today I have a collection of treats from one of the portal’s most consistent and prolific …Read more >
