Hey there, Fanon Review Squad.here, reviewing by on behalf of the
This fanon is a detailed interpretation of the events that occurred between The Boiling Rock, Part 2 and The Southern Raiders. A classic "missing episode" scenario, The Tour describes how the awkward rift between Aang and Katara, formed by his actions and her own indecisiveness, is mended as well as insight and a horrifying discovery regarding the history of the Western Air Temple.
This is the second fanon of Lovebender’s that I’ve had the pleasure of reading, and I must say that I found this one even better than the first. I will say again that her style, though less poetic and more narrative driven, is reminiscent of TAD’s. For those of you who read ABCLAF, you know what I’m talking about.
Story – 10: Oh. My. Goodness. I cannot believe the care with which this story was written. I am amazed and impressed consistently with Lovebender’s ability to craft a genius story.
Action – 9.0: There aren’t battles or physical confrontation as one might see it, but there is action here. And all of it is amazingly described.
Writing – 10: The style that Lovebender employs is both poetic and yet a narrative in the traditional sense. It’s as much dialogue and interaction as it is emotion.
Creativity – 9.5: The idea of episodes-in between-episodes has been done before, but never this well.
Believability – 9.5: Personalities, plot, conversations, etc. are all spot-on. There are very few instances of “too convenient”.
Character Development – 10: What can I say? The characters are not only taken right out of the show, they are given something more.
Average Score: 9.7
Note: All scores are out of ten
Advice for Lovebender110: As a reviewer, I have a love/hate relationship with this sort of review. I love the fact that it gets this kind of score, but at the same time, I can’t see anything that needs improving. My only advice: keep writing.
Who should read The Tour? Want to read an engrossing character study? Give this one a go.
