Juji's fine. He comes back to life in the end when the doomsday device shifts the polarity of the Earth. Oops. Spoiler. Sorry.

Warning! This page contains spoilers for Silent Hero in Emerald.


Gist of the Tale

Silent Hero in Emerald tells the story of Yuhan, a quirky but formidable agent of the Dai Li. He begins to question the laws of his organization after falling for Riya, a girl whom they say will pay the price for threatening the balance of Ba Sing Se.

Current production notes

For those of you who didn't already know, waiting for updates from this fanon is an astounding process that teaches you strength and perseverance in the art of divine patience.

  • Chapter Progress: ...27 is in production! :D
  • Desired update time: Before 2018
  • Realistic update time: Probably in 2018
  • Things you can do in the meantime: Reread!!! A year between chapters plus lots of revisions gives plenty to refresh yourself!

Previously on Silent Hero in Emerald...

Chapter 26: Brightest in the Dark

"I'm going to die in a cave while Riya gets burned down with my city from an evil comet. Brilliant."
―Yuhan's optimism

Highlights (subject to change)

  • Yuhan runs into music-loving ferocious beasts in the Lovers' Cave.
  • He also discovers a certain tomb.
  • The crystal path turns out to be no good because the other exit is also caved in.
  • It's very likely that he'll totally lose it at this point.
  • But he also has some nice flashbacks!
  • Does he know the true meaning of earthbending? o.o

Coming Up...

Chapter 27: Road Rage

"A lost earthbender
Rides a directionless beast
Trying to get home
―Yuhan's haiku

Planned Content (subject to change)

  • Hanbao is a very distracted badgermole with unreasonable food demands
  • They resurface just about everywhere except Ba Sing Se
  • Hiroshu meets the most random people during his trip home
  • Time is running short before a certain rendezvous

Random Fun Facts and Commentary

  • Lady Lostris, the canonical expert, usually has the final say in whether or not a plot idea in this fanon is realistic and useable.
  • Mageddon725 is unquestionably the author who suffers most waiting for updates. He also started Suroshu, which the author can definitely live without.
  • Nazgullow is the most glorious, generous illustrator this author could ever ask for. No amount of gratitude will ever be enough ;_; (And if you're reading this, Naz, you're still insane for thinking your work is mediocre. TAKE THE PRAISE, DUDE.)
  • Yuhan has appeared via cameos in random fanon newsletter staff story/parody articles at least 10 times more often than he appears in a new chapter of his own fanon. This is probably his author's fault, since she's part of newsletter staff in the first place. Sorry to those who find agony seeing both author and Yuhan anywhere except in a new chapter :>

Trivia: Yuhan's Antics Outside the Fanon

There's enough things now to make a list of every weird ordeal he's gone through outside the plot of SHiE (links added later). Where has Yuhan been spotted if not in SHiE?

  • Being used in a ridiculous hypothetical battle scene against Aang (who was disguised as an agent) in one of Minnichi's newsletter articles rambling about writing do's and don't's
  • Tripping over a cabbage before being approached by Pu-On Tim, the overzealous playwright who was desperately seeking funding from Ba Sing Se's authorities
  • Being thrown in a group who came from different universes, and one of them hates his guts enough for constant murder attempts
  • Being dragged into a Fanon Author Valentine's Day party, where he tried to kill Minnichi after realizing who she is (ergo, ruiner of his life)
  • Being borrowed in the Dai Li parts of other fanons
  • Lost in some limbo place with other fanon characters who've gotten lost and insane due to their authors' eternity of no updates
  • Having an epic rap battle on his author's behalf against a Water Tribe girl representing his author's rival

...and there'll surely be more.
