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…

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 >
"Welcome everyone to the Literature of the Duchy of Skibbington. It is a collection of the finest one-shot literature in the Duchy, written and selected by me – The Duke of Skibbington himself. In other words, it is a compilation of all the one-shots that I wrote."
Hello Avatar Wikians! Bomochu here and I'm back again with the pleasure of reviewing a collection of the Duke of Skibbington's one-shots here, collectively titled, 'Literature of the Duchy of Skibbington'. The blurb above is what appears on the central hub for the one-shots, welcoming readers to a diverse range of fanons written by Duke. For easier reviewing, the nine one-shots to be reviewed will be split into two parts and given a score for each, and then a total score, and the …

It's Bomochu back again with the second part to a review for ARG Presents. Last time we looked at four hilarious and enjoyable one-shots, so now let's take a look at the other four:
Live Another Day
Written for another writing contest, this time the prompt "Write an Epic Fight Scene", Live Another Day features a battle between Hakoda from the Southern Water Tribe and a 'mysterious' waterbender.
Brilliant story! The plot twist at the end was unexpected and worked really well. The back-and-forth style of describing one opponent and their attack and then how the other countered made for an exciting and memorable story. A simple yet elegant story that serves its purpose well.
The whole setup for this fanon was superb; the surp…
