Rise of the Avatar

Rise of the Avatar is a new fanon written by the user Carloso. It tells the tragic story of Shinn Fey, a young boy wandering the world alone. Not knowing he is Avatar, Shinn travels to the Earth Kingdom to escape his corrupt homeland. However, as his birthright is revealed, he must fight for his life while coming to terms with the fact the world now rests on his shoulders. Will Shinn prevail or fail?


As the setting could be confusing to some here it is in a more simple form. Rise of an Avatar takes place in 918 BG (That's before Aang). You will find that not a lot of the characters from the A:TLA will be mentioned as they don't exist yet.


Book 1 Beginnings:

  • Chapter 1: A New Land Shinn arrives at the Earth Kingdom where he discovers life is as hard as the Fire Nation.
  • Chapter 2: Tensions Shinn finds himself in the farm of the Shao's and is forced to defend it when it comes under attack.
  • Chapter 3: The Prince In the Fire Nation the 'Avatar' trains with Xu Ki.
  • Chapter 4: Revalations Xu Ki arrives in the Earth Kingdom and a major battle ensues.
  • Chapter 5: A Dark Past Shinn's past is finally revealed as Xu's involment is discovered.
  • Chapter 6: Allies in the Earth Shinn meets with Ren Xu and learns of a chance at vengeance.
  • Chapter 7: The Assassin A Series of murders in the city of Isu sparks Shinn's attention but who is behind the attacks?
  • Chapter 8: Duel on the Plains The Assassin reappears and, using a mysterious power, gives Shinn the most intense fight of his life!
  • Chapter 9: The Unleashing (I would put a preview here but I'm going to be cruel by not give anything away! Ha Ha!).
  • Chapter 10: Decisions (Better read it, because I can't preview it without spoiling it)

Book 2:Disturbance

  • Chapter 1: Ambush at Patola Shinn travels to the Patola mountain range in an attempt to find the Southern Air Temple; however, a new foe enters the playing field...
  • Chapter 2: The Airbender Shinn arrives to a 'warm' welcome at the temple while Xu fights for his life!
  • Chapter 3: Trouble is Never Far Away
