The Legend of Korra

The Weatherbenders is a new story written about two years after the War, in which a subart of the four Bending Arts, believed to have been lost for two and a half millennia, returns to the world, creating disturbing results. It is up to Team Avatar to bring the world out of chaos once again.


One summer day, while clearly under the influence of drugs, and likely alcohol, either all that or delusional from a 100 °F day, the idea came to mind while the author was writing Engagements and starting Asami's Story. The author was a meteorology student as his current university, and has been interested in weather since he was a young boy. He gathered the idea of combining the weather with Avatar, and thus came the concept of "Weatherbending". Then came the story idea, a new uprising against Team Avatar using this art, and also connecting it to the protagonists. Thus, the planning began, and soon came the story.


Twenty-two months have passed since the end of the War, and all seems at peace. The road to recovery continues throughout the world, with Earth King Kuei having returned to power over a year ago, and him returning to control after the Dai Li were banished. Fire Lord Zuko is re-uniting the Fire Nation, and re-construction of the Southern Water Tribe is progressing smoothly.

However, starting in the late summer of 102 AG, bizarre changes in weather patterns begin to be reported worldwide, with severe deviations from average. It is later discovered that a mysterious, ancient bending art has been revived, and Team Avatar figures out it is the art of Weatherbending. Members of the Gaang begin to learn that they are capable of this art, and will have to work together to try and bring down the force which has revived it.
