The Legend of Korra

The Lightningbenders is a Fanfiction story that follows the story of the re-discovery of Lightningbending, and follows the life of Korra's successor as the Avatar, Avatar Lu Chen.


Because of the Air Nation's current status, the spirits have endowed Pang with the knowledge of the lost art of Lightningbending. Upon his discovery, he and his wife Terra defeated the Northern Barbarian Chiefs, and brought their territory under their rule; creating the Lightning Domain

He bequeathed this new territory the Lightning Domain, and declared himself the first Lightning Prince. Later, he and Terra had a son together, the new Avatar. Years later, people migrated from their homes to learn lightningbending, and others left to make a fresh start. Many of the immigrants from the other five nations became fascinated with the skill, and devoted their lives to mastering it.

In spite of this, Wei Fung constructed the Lightning Temple in the wilderness to house those who chose to devote the remainder of their lives to mastering lightningbending. The Lightning Nuns and Monks took up residence in the temple, and most of the immigrants from the other lands studied under the masters there. Others, were taught by Pang and Terra themselves, or relatives.

Upon the death of Longshot, the last living original member of the Freedom Fighters, a young man named Yao took control of the group, and increased its military strength greatly. He sent agents going around recruiting powerful benders that were against claiming of the northern Earth Empire, now ruled by Kuvira. Slowly, his power grew in the shadows, and when his power reached its peak, he attacked the Lightning Domain.

His soldiers stormed the Lightning Temple, and when Wei Fung came to the inhabitant's defence, the powerful lightningbender was killed in battle. Lu Chen, being only ten years old at the time, was severely hurt by this. The temple was saved, but at what cost? I don't want to spoil anything else, so that's all you guys get for now! This is the abridged version, the real one is available at
