Hey there, Fanon Review Squad.here, reviewing by on behalf of the
It has been seven months after the war has ended and Team Avatar is living peacefully in Ba Sing Se. However, there are those who wish to settle the score with our heroes and will do whatever it takes to get it. Join Team Avatar on their adventures in this exciting conclusion to the events of Avatar: the Last Airbender as they travel near and far to end what the worst conflict in history started.
This fanon certainly had potential, and with an Energybending villain, I thought I would be able to get into it. Unfortunately, it fell into the “I’ve seen this before” trap very quickly. It is another ‘after-the-war’ fanon, and it reads like one.
Story – 7.0: Like I said, this is kind of the standard after-the-war piece. That’s not to say that it didn’t have its moments, but overall it felt familiar.
Action – 8.5: I will give Slash props on the action in his story, which I believe was generally well-written and given a good spread in the story.
Writing – 6.0: This was one area where, if Slash improves, will help TAoTA immensely. As of right now, though, it is more of a stumbling block. Sentence structure ad grammar are often clunky and distracting. And I believe that it detracts from the story accordingly.
Creativity – 5.0: I don’t want to beat a dead horse, but ‘after-the-war’ fanon pretty much describes this, although Jun, the Energybending villain, made things a tad more interesting.
Believability – 6.0: I didn’t feel like the characters, new and old, grew or changed. The old characters were cardboard cutouts from the show, and the villain moves far too quickly with his plans to be realistic.
Character Development – 6.0: As I said before, “cardboard cutouts”.
Average Score: 6.4
Note: All scores are out of ten
Advice for Agent Slash: You can’t do much about what the fanon is, but do polish your writing and give the characters reason to grow and allow them to. Doing this will immensely improve your fanon.
Who should read The Adventures of Team Avatar? Anyone who enjoys continuations of the Gaang’s story will feel right at home with TAoTA.
