Child of Destiny is a fanon written and edited by MightyBrit, that is still a work in progress. This page is to provide updates on the fanon to the community at large.
Currently, seventeen chapters have been published.
Chapter 16: Best Laid Plans
Update 1: Desperate Measures is proving very difficult to write, as it is exposition and dialogue heavy as opposed to the more action packed chapters that have preceded it. I wrote the whole first part and then deleted it immediately because I felt it was boring especially after the way the last chapter ended. Still, I pressed on, and have now got about half of the chapter finished. I'm hoping to have the whole thing out and published by next week.
Update 2: okay, so I wrote a lot of Chapter 16, but I didn't like the way the story was flowing, the ending seemed anticlimactic and uninteresting and the whole chapter seemed overlong, so I cut a lot of sections out and moved them over to the next chapter. When I did that, the chapter name didn't make sense anymore, so I changed it and the title for the next one as well. I'm still less than happy with this chapter, as I'm noticing that it's a filler and exposition chapter, but it's all necessary if the Book 2 finale is going to go off without a hitch. Anyway, there's just a tiny section for me left to write - a brief scene with Toph and Ursa - so this chapter is pretty much ready to be published. I do, however, have a double shift at work tomorrow, so it may not happen until Friday.
Chapter 17: Healed, But Broken
Update 1: April 19th, 2011: Decided to start dating these updates, otherwise things may get confusing. But that's not what I'm here for... This chapter has three large portions to write, then a brief cliffhanger. The first one, which stars Zhao, is all finished already as I wrote it for chapter 16, but the other two are proving more difficult to write - one's an exposition heavy segment with Iroh (a character whom I love, but find tricky to write) and the other's an action heavy sequence on board the skyship. Still, third of the way done this early into my two week timetable is pretty good... So, it should be out on schedule. Also, I've started updating the character page, so that they are more up to date with the story. If anyone sees any mistakes on the character pages, please fix them for me.
Chapter 18: Like Father, Like Son
Update 1: May 12th, 2011: okay. I know it's been two weeks and I know I should have this chapter out already... but I don't. I'm sorry. It's nearly done and I hope to get it finished either tomorrow or Saturday... I'm very sorry, but I'm afraid I had to put real life first this week.
Update 2: May 28th, 2011: So, as some of you will know, I recently lost someone very close to me quite unexpectedly and the whole shock of things as well as my responsibility to my family has delayed this chapter quite significantly... which is a real shame, for many reasons. Mostly because I would have liked to have finished Book 2 by the time Clash of Worlds 4 comes out, so I can include the Great Maw within the crossover parody series. But, I am happy to announce that I have finally returned home and life is returning to somewhat normal and that I hope to have this chapter published within the next few days or so. Thanks to all of you for your patience and support in this tough time for me and I promise you a doozy of a chapter very soon. :)
