Mai's Story

Those Bored Eyes is the story of Avatar: The Last Airbender being told as Mai sees it. Although many people may see her as "that bored girl" I think that her story is worth listening to. I hope to write an interesting story about going from being a villain to being a hero queen.

Feel free to give me your comments and ideas. If you see anything that needs edited or cleaning up in the story, click the edit button. I really appreciate reader feedback. Thanks!

About Mai

Even though most of you know who Mai is, let me give a little background info. Mai is a teenage girl from the Fire Nation. She is not a bender, but rather uses knives as her fighting style. She often sits alone and considers her life as "boring." Very little seems to entertain her. In my story, Mai has recently moved from the Fire Nation to and Earth Kingdom city, Omashu. Here she finds herself just as bored as before. There are several additional characters who play major roles in the series: 1. Azula. She is the Princess of the Fire Nation, and was a childhood friend of Mai's. Azula tends to be rather mean and malicious.

2. Ty Lee. She was another childhood friend, who is, unlike Mai, very energetic and happy.

3. Zuko. He is the crown prince of the Fire Nation who was recently banished for lack of respect. Mai had a crush on him as a child, and still likes him.

I hope you enjoy the story!


There will be about 14 chapters, but so far seven have been written, and chapter eight has been started.
