Avatar: War of the Elements

Avatar: War of the Elements

Fan Fiction Comedy Fantasy Satire Fan Fiction

Another life, another time, another war.

In which the battles that took place before the awakening of our beloved Airbender takes a drastic turn

With the Avatar, the Bridge between the Spirit World and the Physical World, missing the world falls into chaos as conflict rises not only between man, but embodiments of nature itself.

Follow along in this tale of Tai, a simple orphan turned farmhand, and the group of unlikely friends he makes along the way as they struggle to make sense of the world gone seemingly mad.

Perhaps, maybe, just maybe they didn't need a Master of the Four Elements and Bringer of Balance to bring peace? Maybe what the world really needed was a bunch of crazy, snarky kids, with a positive attitude willing to lend a helping hand?

...Oh who was he kidding, the world was doomed wasn't it?

 

Alternate universe/timeline Avatar the last airbender fanfic. Takes place decades before Aang would've come into play. An altered world history as I reimagine it. (Mostly because I have gripes about the fire nation and how the earth nation isn't an absolutely dominating force in warfare.)

Of course, the fire nation is still winning... for now. A hundred years of war is a long time, and nothing drives innovation more than war as they say.

At the end of a covert mission to suppress an ongoing Orcish Rebellion, Betrard Falen, an honorable and beloved general of the Kingdom of Alvyond, is murdered by his trusted lieutenant, Ia Balam. Just as Falen is lying dead, one of the Seven Daemons, Laab the Trickster, resurrects the betrayed hero and, in return, asks him to become his champion, a worshipper-at-war who will have to kill and make fame all in the name of the Daemon. Meanwhile, Balam returns to the Kingdom to take everything Falen has worked for--the fame, the riches, and even the marriage with the Crown Princess--while spreading false rumors that Falen himself was a treasoner to the Kingdom and a liason to the Rebellion, thus deserving rightful death. Thanks to the Daemon Laab, Falen further learns that the King, who has long envied Falen's popularity with the people, personally planned and ordered the assassination through Balam. Enraged and agonized, Falen accepts Laab's proposal and becomes his cursed champion to live once again and seek revenge against not just those involved in his death but the entire Kingdom that readily deserted and dishonored him. Now named Ryzen Venger, the fallen hero sets out on a journey to fell the kingdom beneath his feet, but not before he enjoys his newly gained freedom and demonic power at mindless debauchery, wanton sex, and murders for pleasure...

Subcutanean

Original Contemporary Horror Psychological Profanity

Insecure college senior Orion loves music, books, and his best friend Niko. When the two of them find a secret basement in their rambling old off-campus house, at first Orion's thrilled. It's another secret to share, another adventure to maybe, at last, bring them closer together.

But something's wrong: the basement doesn't end. Blandly decorated halls stretch on for miles past peeling wallpaper, empty bedrooms, and countless stairwells always leading down. Soon they realize Downstairs is a snarled tangle of possibilities, more and more opening up the deeper they go. Something down there multiplies everything: architecture, emotions, even people.

Together they must navigate an increasingly dangerous labyrinth that peels back their friendship to raw and angry roots, filled with two-faced doppelgängers, treacherous architecture, and long-buried secrets. Most dangerous of all is Orion's consuming obsession: somewhere down there, is there a Niko who loves him back?

This is version #01893 of Subcutanean, a unique novel that changes each time it's printed. Find out more at subcutanean.textories.com.

Become something more than myself. Something I may have already been before. Gain the strength and power to fight against 'Evil.' Or some such nonsense. Sleep with beautiful badass women and start my journey to save all of existence. It'll be a long one, I imagine. You may even want to be along for the ride.

 

So, how do I start?

 

Get killed. Sent to another world. Given powers to control the elements and maybe even something more. Meet a lot of strong badass women. Kick a lot of ass. Get down with some of the women. Walk a lot. Burn off some steam by kicking more ass. Fling about some fireballs. Fight bandits and monsters. Bond with a fiery goddess and a massive dread wolf. Contemplate my existence. Kick even more ass, but this time with fireballs.

 

This is only the first book.

 

I believe those are good starting points.

 

Warning: My story contains violence, many sexual situations and a slow-build harem.

He feels a connection to Nirin unlike anything he's felt before, even knowing the boy is a cultist and a rebel. But bringing Nirin into his life engenders a complex web of emotions, secrets, and lies that changes Kiol's life forever and forces him to question everything he's ever been told.
