    This is probably my favorite Avatar The Last Airbender fanfic. It's a Azula and Aang Centric story that is by an author who you may remember as the author of the Avatar TLA/Mass Effect crossover "Avatar of Victory" which is in the Other Fandoms library. This story has many well written OC's, although you may at times skip over some of their parts in order to get to the parts with Aang, Azula, or Zuko. It is much darker than the cartoon, and it is AU. The update rate is ever 15 days by the way. It is currently at Book Three by the way.

    The best twist in the story is by far:
    Azula is actually canon Azula who made a deal with a mischievous spirit in order to go back in time, but the spirit made a mistake, causing Azula to be trapped in her 8 year old body.

    In the end, this is one of my favorite Avatar TLA fanfics, if not stories in general, and I do believe it can work in the library. I personally give it a 5/5.

    I actually recommended this a while ago. The sheer amount of world building the author puts into this astounds me, however he writes in a particularly info dumpy way and it slows down the story a lot of the time. Still, this is easily one of my favorite stories. 4.5/5

    I hate that fucking chick who travels with Aang so much. The one with the stuck-up bitch attitude who never gets what she fucking deserves, and is always permanently stuck in a "Well, actually..." mode. I would love this fic if she just would stop talking.

    I still give it a 4/5, out of the crazy amounts of worldbuilding he puts into shit we rarely saw, like the Sandbenders and Ba Sing Se. That makes it really neat, and his Azula is so goddamn interesting too.

    Good story with great world building. I can't stand Nila though and she has a pretty big part in the story. Sharif and even Malu are good characters, but reading Nila is like the bad parts of Wheel of Time in my opinion. I do like what the author has done with Azula and Aang/Azula is a pairing I've looked for in the past but couldn't find anything good for.
    4/5

    Finally made my way to the last released chapter, and while some of the parts are boring, somewhat understandable in a 1 million word tale, it doesn't detract enough from the ridiculously awesome world building to keep this from being a 5/5 story. Once you get to book 3 and most of the gang is in the same area rather than 3 or 4 different cells, it's waaaaaay better. The spiritual/shaman stuff is a neat addition, and I just love the way the author shows the power of the Avatar. This story just has so many moments of awesome that are chill inducing. It's not a sit-and-read-the-whole-thing-in-one-go-story, but reading a few chapters a day is how I got through it, and I'm definitely glad I did.

    That and Azula/Aang is just the shit even though it's not realized yet.

    This story is now complete. And it was quite an epic tale.

    5/5
