Avatar is a biblical story

One of the things I love about Avatar: The Last Airbender is how much it feels like a biblical story (especially with the Air Nomad Genocide), and I headcanon the idea of Aang being seen as a prophet in the far future of the Avatar world and him being a central figure in a religion long after the Avatar cycle has ended (that would make another biblical story). In said religion the main figures would be:

  • Wan, the first Avatar (approx. 5,000 BG)
  • The final Avatar (could've been Korra but no)
  • Whoever ends the cycle, the dark avatar could be cool.

My idea of the final Avatar story would be the same as the season 2 of Korra with her dying in the Avatar state while fighting the villain during the Harmonic Convergence as she restores the Airbenders to t…

Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Month on Avatar Wiki

Beyond just the creators that have made the franchise what it is, Avatar also owes its success to the many influences from Asian and Pacific Islander culture, some of which we wanted to highlight below:

  • The artistic and animation styles used in Avatar are influenced by various forms of Japanese anime, in particular the films Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke by Hayao Miyazaki.
  • The choreographed martial art bending moves were inspired by Asian cinema, including Shaolin Soccer and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The four main bending styles are based almost entirely upon traditional Chinese martial arts.
  • The concept of the five elements was first developed in India and the Five Classical Elements of Hinduism and Buddhism, providing the backbone of the…

Stupid crazy future ideas for transcripts

Just some stuff I thought could be added. Doing this would take a lot of effort, and I'm probably going to take a break after doing the commentaries, but if you're looking for something to do, here are some ideas.

FRRS - Categories and Overall Reviewing Style

Hey there Avatar Wikians of the fanon portal!

I thought I'd make a blog to explain the current categories I use when reviewing for the FRRS since I've recently made some changes, and figured it might be helpful for anyone looking to get a review from me.  

Reviewing and having useful categories for assessing is really something you learn as you go. This may not be the final list of categories I'll use, though I do try and test them out on a variety of stories before considering changing them again. And of course, other reviewers may use an entirely different set to me, or use the categories I no longer do, so this is more my own personal preference.

Currently, there are six aspects of a story that I review:

An extensive list of Avatar literature

This is a list of every piece of Avatar literature with a separate ISBN I compiled over the last months. Originally posted here, I decided to put it here as well. It's really interesting to sort by ISBN and find some patterns or discrepancies where you wouldn't expect them.

Feel free to comment on any errors I've made or if anything is hard to understand.

  • I don't know if it's possible to directly link to Special:BookSources?=ISBN, so here are the blank ones.
  • The "codes" are a personal tool for me to structure it better.
  • The publication dates are mostly from the official pages, so slight delays of preliminary dates are not taken into account.
