Hello fanon portal-ers. I’m putting up this blog for the benefit of those I have already written reviews for and those whom I might write reviews for in the future. Basically, I wanted to give some explanations of the categories that I use to review fanons, why I have them on my list and how I calculate scores. Of course, some of the categories intertwine with others at times, so they cannot all be considered to be mutually exclusive. This is especially the case when the same thing causes deductions in multiple categories, and the same reasoning might need to be repeated on the fanon review. Hopefully this should make things more transparent for my reviewing and also shed some light on what I believe to be quality writing in general.

Hello again fanon portal-ers. Well, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Real life has been in a wee bit of a hectic transition lately, so that’s made keeping up with a lot of stuff rather difficult. Nevertheless, I feel that I have delayed this new review for a long time in particular. This is, in part due to my schedule and also due to the abundance of categories and scores involved, being another collection of one-shots. In the future, I shall do my best to see that my fanon reviews are completed within a reasonable time frame, so that I don’t find myself in the awkward position of publishing reviews for authors who have long left the wiki. Anyhow, today I have a collection of treats from one of the portal’s most consistent and prolific …Read more >

Four of those were from authors who have written around the portal left and right, and we even got the opportunity to welcome a newcomer into the fold, making his debut onto the portal with the contest entry. With a creative and interesting idea from and some high-quality and immersive writing from , it was no simple task to select a winner this time around. As always, let us be…Read more >

A dark spirit from the past returns! What is his purpose? It will be up to the relatively young Order of the White Lotus to put an end to it.
With his refreshing cast of original characters going on an adventure centuries into the future of the Avatar world as we know it (in a somewhat modified timeline), this is something that can be frequented by both new readers and fans of his own work alike. So let’s check it out, shall we?

Happy September, members of the fanon community. It's contest time once again!
As always, let us begin with the results from the last contest, which gave us the pleasure of reading four entertaining entries by some of Avatar Wiki's regular authors. Each of these songfics brought their own character and musical flare to the table, and it took us several days to decide upon our victor. All four participants of Round 13 may use the template .
And now onto Round 14, which will run from September 16 to October 20, given that we're starting so late in the month once again. For this prompt, you can write about anything - that's right. Anything you want, as long as it's related to Avatar, of any genre and style. That is, as long as it is 500 words …Read more >
