Main Characters


  • Korra
    • And by extent, Aang
  • Katara
  • Sokka
  • Toph Beifong


Minor Characters


  • Mako (Part Two)
  • Bolin Beifong
  • Asami Sato
  • Lin Beifong (Part Two)
  • Zuko (Part Two)


Please note that there will be some changes made to the family trees and histories of some characters (for instance the Lin-Bolin-Toph triangle), and some last names have been given. This has all been done intentionally and with a full conscience, and there is a reason to everything that has been "fixed". So...there's that.

Author's Note

Umm, this was going to be an absurdly massive one-shot (emphasis on absurdly) before I decided to cut it into two parts. Also, I have left the title in all lowercase letters for stylistic purposes, so please do not change it.

Updates on this fanon will probably have long hiatuses in between, as each of the two full-length "chapters" are basically two whole books condensed into one (i.e., my own versions of "Water" and "Earth" into the souls that we have marked; not everything in the actual books seen in A:TLA will be included, to preserve what little conciseness the story has left if that made any sense at all, :P).

Anyhow, I do hope that you come to enjoy the little collection of nonsense I am writing. :) Good day/night to you all!
