A Quick Note

This is my first fanon here, and while I haven't been around this wiki lately and I certainly haven't read all of the fanon stories; I haven't yet come across a fanon that has the same idea as me. (If your fanon does, I swear I didn't see it) I've had the idea to do a fanon like this for a while, and I've finally made it. Now, without further ado, here's the fanon page!


The world was forever impacted the night of Sozin's attack. While the Air Nomad's loss was clearest, the other four nations were impacted as well. If the Air Nomad Genocide was a stone thrown in a pond, this is the story of the ripples that spread. This is the story of eight characters, two from each nation, as they fall.

This story follows the lives of people in each nation during and after Sozin's attack on the Air Nomads. Via and Wei, both 12 year old Air Nomads, struggle to survive and hide from the Fire Nation while still dealing with the loss of their culture. Kaori, a 16 year old Northern Water Tribe lady, is in love with Aiko, the Chief's son; but one secret could keep them apart. Emi, a 15 year old Earth Nation citizen, deals with the Fire Nation's growing presence in the Earth Kingdom. Zeno, an 18 year old Fire Nation soldier, finds hiself doubting the Fire Nation for the first time.

The stories will connect in some ways, but won't always be on the same timeline. For example, the Earth section could be a week ahead of the Water section in the same chapter. This happens mainly because it wouldn't fit each section to have all of them skip ahead a week at the same time.


I'm not going to post that much information about each character, because most will be revealed as the story progresses, and I don't want to ruin the surprise. Still, there will be spoilers here if you haven't read the first chapter. I'm working on character pages, but these will do for now.

IMPORTANT: If you would like to be an editor, just ask. The only requirement is that you read the chapters written so far in this fanon before asking.

Next Chapter: 90%-- So help me, I will not let this go inactive. It just needs a bit of editing, and then it will be good to go.

Character pages

I'm currently working on making character pages.

Character pictures: 90% completed

Character histories: 5% completed

Character infoboxes: 12% completed

Completely completed pages: None. Dang procrastination...


Please add your username here if you would like to suscribe, and be messaged every time a chapter comes out. Because I'm such an irresponsible writer there is no set schedule as to when chapters are posted, this is probably the easiest way to keep up with this fanon.
