|Village of Anquan|
A Fanon comic stumbled upon on deviantART left PiEman in spiritual disarray for days, nearly a week, for reasons he could not explain. It also left him with an unquenchable thirst for more Avatar-related media. This led him to the Avatar Wiki.
After reading descriptions of several Avatar Fanon pieces, and finding them to be much darker than the actual show, PiEman read, by . He found it to be much more fitting to the image of the show, and was further inspired to create his own piece.
The idea of four Earth Kingdom boys living their lives after the war, combined with images from the episode Zuko Alone fresh in his mind, triggered the idea for The Village of Anquan. Before writing the initial chapter, PiEman thought out bases for each of the four original characters, and gave them each a name from Chinese words that applied to something about them or their personality.
After completing the first chapter, and before writing the second, PiEman spent several man hours studying Waterbending, and Earthbending, watching YouTube videos, reading Wiki articles, and even studying and reading of the martial art forms that the two bending styles are based on (Tai Chi and Hung Gar Kung Fu, respectively). Finally, an effort was made to make Cao's bending seem much less skilled than his opponent's.
The story takes place about one month after the end of the war with the Fire Nation. Anquan is a small Earth Kingdom village that is now struggling to get by, partially due to the fact that all of the men in the town over the age of 16 have gone off (or in some cases, were forced off) to join the army. It is located somewhere in the Northeastern region of the Earth Kingdom, on the opposite end of the Serpent's Pass from Ba Sing Se.
- Ānquán (安全) is Chinese for "safe".
