Omashu Rocks here for another installment of FRS:The Omashu Scoop! Today's fanon isby
Authors' Plot: Taking place approx. three years after the events of Sozin's Comet, True Winds, Flowing Water is a deep, descriptive story following Team Avatar in their struggle to maintain the peace and love they have fought so long to achieve in the world...and within each other.
Plot/Storyline: We've all seen plots like these: Team Avatar struggles to maintain peace. Sure there are things that distinguish this particular fanon from the rest, but at the end of the day, it is just another typical "After War" fanon. 8.9
Organization: No complaints here. Looks like the author planned ahead. 9.4
Creativity: Like I said earlier, most of this has been done before, unfortunately. 8.4
Action: This wasn't too shabby, to be honest. Readers of my reviews know I like some good action, and this story kept me at least moderately satisfied. 9.1
Interest Level: Unfortunately, being just another post-war fanon, I wasn't dying to read each chapter. 8.8
Character Development: I suppose this is one of the fanon's strong points, and again, not too shabby. 9.3
Believability: I can certainly believe most things, but only because tons of other authors have already written a lot of it. Therefore, I'm not scoring believability; I don't think I can do it fairly.
General Writing: Lovebender is a pretty good writer, and his/her story has a nice poetic ring that kept me reading. The occasional cliffhanger was a nice touch. 9.4
Average Score: 9.0
Note: All Scores Are Out Of Ten
What Lovebender does right:
There's nothing wrong with the actual writing of the fanon. Grammar checks out, the vocab is nice, and I love the poetry to it. The only fault occurs simply in the plot, being one that is more than overused.
What Lovebender could improve on:
Not much to do about the "post-war" plot, but the author can certainly add at least three humungous things that will blow the readers' socks off. Try introducing a villain, weapon, fighting style, place, etc. like no other
Who does True Winds, Flowing Water appeal to? Fans of poetry should give this story a shot, really. You can tell from the title… In reality, I think this is a great find for those craving some good writing, regardless of the storyline.
