Hey there, Fanon Review Squad.here, reviewing by on behalf of the
To BE but Not to BE will follow Elquiorra's journey as he masters the Avatar State and rebels against the evil Biobenders. The story takes place 102 years after Avatar: The Legend of Korra series. The main setting for book 1 will be in the Air Temple territories near the Northern Air Temple. The setting for the next two books will be in The United Republic. While Elquiorra is traveling, he'll meet two new friends, and liberate cities controlled by the Death God.
This fanon is something I’ve not yet encountered before, in many respects. Omar puts an interesting spin on the Avatar, giving us a nihilistic, emotionless young man named Elquiorra. Gone are the carefree days of Avatar Aang and the action-filled ones of Korra, but that makes this fanon all the more unique. I must say that it adds a little depth.
Story – 8.9: The story of To BE but Not to BE is different, in a good way. It takes a basic idea and transforms it into something more.
Action – 8.5: The action was quite well-described, but I think there could’ve been more. With four chapters, though, I’d imagine there will be.
Writing – 9.0: Omar writes very well; I was impressed. There were, however, a few points where I noticed that it was a tad clunky, and I had to reread to ensure that I had read it right the first time.
Creativity – 9.2: The idea of this “Death God” villain is a most original concept, and I can’t wait to see where that goes.
Believability – 8.8: I was impressed thus far with the story and its ability to maintain a believable plot and characters. That being said, I’m not a fan of “love at first sight” stuff, but that is a minor complaint.
Character Development – 9.1: Elquiorra is arguably the most interesting character I’ve encountered in quite a while. His nihilism and arrogance work in tandem to form an artfully crafted anti-hero.
Average Score: 8.9
Note: All scores are out of ten
Advice for Omar067: You have a good fanon going; just keep writing and ensure that your characters and plot develop in a believable way.
