Hey readers, TJ here.
I know I should be updating Night Star, but I just wanted to tell you all about a new A:TLA story I have in the making, called “Of Shadows and Fire”. It’s another Zuko/OC story. Here’s the preview:
Of Shadows And Fire:
An Avatar: The Last Airbender Fanfiction by Thalassa J. Jackson
*Mysterious voice clears throat*
“Long ago, before the time of the Avatar, there was one kind of bender that was different from the others. These benders had the ability to bend shadows. The Shadowbenders were able to bend the darkness around them, which made them very powerful. However, this power started to corrupt them. They started to turn insane, killing without mercy.
“The people of the world began to turn to the Avatar for help. So he journeyed into the Spirit World to find Anei, the goddess of darkness and the mother of the Shadowbenders. She was upset about what her creations had become, so she decided to take them from the world. On the winter solstice, at midnight on the new moon, the Shadowbenders all gathered to worship their goddess. Anei, knowing this was the time, pulled them all into the ShadowWorld, a place between the Spirit and physical worlds that she had created, trapping them there for all eternity. Until one day, the Avatar disappeared for a century, Anei knew a Shadowbender was needed to return to the world and restore balance. So, she allowed one girl to be born a Shadowbender. She faced a hard life ahead of her, and she also found love along the way.
“This is the story of the last Shadowbender.”
Inspired by the songs “Hand of Sorrow” by Within Temptation and “Bring Me To Life” by Evanescence
