The Faceless One


Avatar Wiki Fanon Portal


The Legend of Korra (Alternate timeline beyond Book 1)

Advent of Earth is a fanon series written by The Faceless One. It tells the story of Chen Ruan, a young nonbender who must embark on an epic journey to save the world he loves from another one just like it.

Plot Overview

It's 220 AG, thirty years after Korra's death, and the legacy of the Avatar is all but forgotten. Killed in her sleep by a force that to this day remains a mystery, Korra was not reincarnated. Naturally, her spiritual disappearance was followed by a short era of mass hysteria, but... as the four nations remained undisturbed by conflict in her absence, her memory slowly faded from the earth. Three decades passed, and still, this peace remained.

The same cannot be said for our world, which seems to be stuck in an era of conflict, and struggle.

However, one fateful day, a wormhole inexplicably opens, leading from our solar system to a destination unknown. Unbeknownst to our technologically advanced civilization, on the other side lies the Avatar Earth, where a historic event is taking place. The United Republic of Nations, commonly abbreviated to "the URN", has won a worldwide space race, and is leading its sister nations into the final frontier by sending a rocket filled with intrepid individuals to its only moon. However, this groundbreaking expedition takes an unexpected turn when another wormhole suddenly opens out of nowhere, and sucks the rocket in! Thus, it and its crew soon come flying out the other end, in the skies of Our Earth!

Faced with the scientific discovery of the millennia, the Humans of Our Earth form a great alliance composed of NASA, CNSA, and a few other space administrations, with the goal of designing a manned mission through the wormhole.

Prologue - Start Reading


The majority of this fanon will take place on the Avatar Earth, a bit in Republic City, and a bit... elsewhere. However, Our Earth will be visited from time to time. The year is 2072 on Our Earth, which translates into 220 AG on the Avatar Earth, fifty years after the events of The Legend of Korra.
