WIP Avatar: Book I: Earth - Chapter 1: Seismology
NO CANYX. I DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT. I AM A NEWBIE. LET ME LEARRRRRRN. XDDD *flails in newbie immaturity*
But in other news, you are responsible in some way, shape or form for my Avatardness. I can’t blame my wife this time. I blame you. Except an Avatar tattoo. EXPECT IT.
So here is a splurge of the first fanfic I am writing for the Avatar: LOK fandom. This is coming in bits and pieces, the longest bit above being conjured up as the result of a nap. The character, a nonbending OC by the name of Theodore Lorenzo Encardi, better known as Dravin (I have no clue why the fuck he gave me that name. It doesn’t seem to fit the universe at all, but he insisted and would not allow me a change of mind.) is apparently my first in the list of Avatar OCs I now have. He use to be a bender, but no longer. He has yet to explain it in detail to me, but I’m sure he will. Right now, he’s focusing his efforts on the caretaking of a certain earthbender.
I have no clue where these events take place, but given the content produced above as I was waking up, I want to say it is shortly after the major plot events of Episode 3, and well after episode 5 (I can’t say much for Ep. 06 just yet obviously.). So I concur that this will be an AU off from the usual canon, which is not something I totally agree with.
And yes, I am completely aware that the bookmaking process was completed and conjured during the Middle Ages, but in my head I feel that the world of Avatar pushed forward through the Buddhist way, in which we went from scriptures to manuscripts to books. Given the period of history that passes over 70 years according to the Avatar wiki, I believe this ample time for introduction of the book printing process given the evolution seen in the show. The same goes for the concept involved in this story revolving around the invention of the fountain pen. I know it doesn’t connect on all points, but my mind doesn’t process the concept of reality well when it’s main priority is writing and character development. XD
This fic will and does contain plenty of Borra, Malin, Makorralin, Makorra, Makami, Dralin, will become mature and will not be eligible to be read by those under the age of their country requirements. But this is the internet, and ya’ll don’t read warnings or triggers so ignore everything said in this paragraph and continue on with your life ladies and gentlemen.
T.L. Encardi (Dravin) belongs to me
Bolin’s character design and character belongs to Nickelodean, Byrke, and the other motherfuckers pulling on our heartstrings.
And Avatar of course, belongs to Nick and the attributing creators.
Read After The Break! <3
And good lord leave feedback bitte~
A Leaf in the Wind: She’s With Me
Like so many other scenes in the show, this one made me succumb to a fit of laughter. First off, we’ve got Bolin’s smirk. I don’t know about you guys, but that smirk definitely said something along the lines of ‘oh yeah, Bolin’s got some moves!’ In my opinion, he was definitely a little too eager to assert his ‘relationship’ with Korra in this situation… and Korra obviously agreed, considering the rapid shift in her expression from happy gratefulness to one of awkward explanation. Then again, at least Bolin seemed pretty receptive of her correction… judging by his ‘crap, it didn’t work! Play it cool Bolin, play it cool’ expression in the second picture.
And of course, that finally brings us to Bolin’s immediate apology and clarification. It’s clear that Korra isn’t buying his clarification (and neither was I, to be honest), but I’m still impressed that Bolin bothered with it in the first place. After all, a lot of guys would probably just say something along the lines of “oh, she’s just shy”, or undermine Korra’s statement in some other way. At the very least, a lot of guys would be indignant at how quickly she she shut him down, and then proceed to sulk around. But not Bolin- he was friendzoned quite quickly there, but he took it with a grace that I was not at all expecting, and quite impressed with.
On a side note, I thought Toza’s reaction to all this was pretty fitting, as well. It’s sort of obvious that Bolin and Korra have just met, but he’s too busy to bother arguing the point with them (especially since he probably knows firsthand just how stubborn Bolin can get when it comes to helping ‘damsels in distress’). When I watched this part though, the first thing I wondered was what that weight was made of for Toza to have been able to lift it without actually touching it. I suppose it’s possible that Toza is an earthbender, and therefore is using earthbending to lift it… but judging by his clothes and the appearance of the weight, I’d say it’s probably more likely that he set up the weights in a way that’d be easier for him to manage by making them out of something hollow, and then filling them with water. I suppose it’s possible that he’s actually an earthbender despite his water tribe getup, but it’s more likely that he’s lifting the weights with waterbending… what do you guys think?
