Er Shi Wu--more commonly known as "One-Eyed" Wu because of the eye patch over his right eye--was the leader of the Ban clan, the largest clan in the Hei Chaoliu criminal organization, in the years leading up to the Earth Kingdom Civil War (1200 years before Avatar Aang). He was known for his use of violent tactics to gain control of the largest portion of the illegal dai zhiwu market in Ba Sing Se. Although Wu's clan participated in several illegal activities, it was mainly dai zhiwu distribution that earned him his money.

Not only a master of earthbending, but also of politics and manipulation, Wu created a public persona of a wealthy merchant, and even gained access to the Earth King's court. But rival Hei Chaoliu clans knew who he really was: the most dangerous criminal of the age. (read more...)

Some chapters make you laugh so hard you can no longer focus on the words. Others make you think about the world, and what you can do to change it for the better. Chapter Thirteen of Typhoonmaster's amazing fanon, Nirvana, does none of these. No, it makes you want to curl up into a little ball and weep for a few hours. Once you think you're done crying, you'll remember this chapter and want to cry all over again.
The entire story, it seems, was building up to this moment. Ty has a wonderful, if not slightly sadistic skill, of making you absolutely fall in love with his world before wrenching it away. It's not just the characters you love; it's the setting and animals. It's the beautiful imagery and the way he can draw out emotions you didn't even realize you had. And then he manages to completely turn it on its head and destroy it right before your very eyes. He has pulled a 'Chapter Thirteen', and there's nothing you can do about it.
If you haven't already read this story, do it. You will regret not reading it just as much as you will regret it by reading it. Ty is.... he's just that good. read more...
This chapter of Lady Lostris' was due to be featured some time ago, if only for the sheer amount of effort and skill that went into the descriptions and action scenes.
The readers truly get inside the head of Seraphine in this chapter, and her moral conundrum at the beginning, coupled with her actions and the result of those actions, this chapter has more characterisation than most full-fledged stories. Lostris has proved, time and time again, what a capable writer she is, and this chapter was just the icing on the cake.
If you want action and violence and a bit of swearing to boot, this chapter is good for that. But, it's not the best part of it. It's the emotions and the eloquence that, really, only Lostris can pull off for such a scene. read more...
Kyoshidude is one of the most under-appreciated users on the wiki, with his writing popping up almost randomly, but never something you want to miss.

But, things aren't meant to be sad, and Katara always knows what to say or do to give him hope again.
This short little 'shot, written by one of the most dedicated and under-appreciated writers, is a perfect rendition of a scene that every Kataang fan has envisioned at least one. read more...
Jtwin1 is the best kind of writer out there; he's good at writing, and he loves doing it. Any user who has spent even a second on one of his story pages can see the depth of detail and work he's put into his stories, and chapter 8 or Avatar: Neo Revolution is no exception.
The Weeds of Wealth is a beautifully written (and titled) chapter—though that's to be expected from the author by now. The vivid descriptions are completely immersive, and it feels like no time at all before you've devoured all 7,000 words.
To anyone who has ever thought about reading some of Jtwin's work but hasn't, this is just the push you need. read more...
Once again, Sparkstoaflame manages to write something completely out of the ballpark, but completely and utterly brilliant at the same time.
In Pursuit of Perfection is a masterpiece of a story—fitting, considering the subject matter. Azula is a painter, Aang is her muse, and together, everything goes absolutely horribly wrong. But, then again, that doesn't really matter when everything is so completely perfect at the same time, too.
A one-shot that will make even the most seasoned readers take a step back and re-evaluate their lives, this story cannot get any higher praise. read more...
