Warning! This page contains spoilers for When Air Nomads Walked the Earth.
When Air Nomads Walked the Earth is a fanon story written by. The tale revolves around the lives of two adolescents living in a world secretly on the verge of warfare.
It is the Summer of 0 ASC, a time when the four nations are at peace with each other or so it seemed. Syra, an eleven year-old Air Nomad girl, is leading a peaceful life at her home, the Eastern Air Temple of the Telukin Mountain Range. With summer having arrived, school days have turned from lessons in the classroom to Airbending practices outdoors. Being one of the top Airbenders in her class and having friends from all around the world, all seems perfect for her until that fateful day when everything would change…
At the same time, a twelve year-old Fire Nation boy, named Siro, is living in the small town of Sen Go not too far from the Fire Nation Capital. His father is one of the advisers to the head of the town and therefore, is very keen on all current events happening; his older brother is training at a local military school. All in the world seems glorious until Siro hears word of Fire Lord Sozin planning to start a war with the other nations…

"After reading this fanon, I won't be insulted if someone says I write like a 13 year old."
"Ultimate has crafted a masterpiece. Her writing is phenomenal, even better than some books I've read. The characters are full of depth and you actually learn to care about them. And the plot itself is great and interesting. It has everything that makes a great story."
"This fanon is incredible! The chapters so far are wonderfully told and I can imagine what it is like to be the characters. The Ultimate Waterbender used vivid and descriptive words in her story. The characters were described well and I could picture what it was like to be an Air Nomad before the Genocide. Ultimate's start to her fanon is great and I can't wait to see more."
"It's really, really addictive. I'm sad that there will only be nineteen chapters. :/ It's extremely riveting, and I absolutely cannot wait for the next chapter."
