"Sometimes life is like this dark tunnel. You can't always see the light at the end of the tunnel, but if you just keep moving, you will come to a better place." — Iroh (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
Hey there. If you have wandered onto this page expecting writing the likes of which hasn't been seen since the time of Shakespeare, well, you might have to wait a while longer.
My name's HammerOfThor, but you can call me Hammer, Thor, HoT, whatever tickles your peach. In the real-world, I am a bespectacled, bearded, British-born mathematics researcher currently living and studying in Sweden. I also previously spent a year living in Italy, but unfortunately my Italian is pretty much limited to saying "hello", "thank you", and "can I have a pizza?"
I was a big fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender when it was first released and I joined this wiki in 2012 just before the release of The Legend of Korra. My main passion is writing, expanding, and improving articles, so most of the stuff you’ll see me doing around here will be in a similar vein to that. Except for the occasional commenting. Or fixing mistakes I've made (there may be many, so expect this to occur with regular frequency). If you spot anything wrong, don't hesitate to send me a message; I'll be happy to hear from a fellow user. And, if you ever need any help or have any questions, feel free to ask. I'm always more than happy to provide assistance.
That's all I got for now. Keep it real and remember; be nice, have fun, always remember to look before crossing the road.
One Small Step for Amon
A one-shot I wrote in 2012 as a parody of the various theories and controversies that circulated about Amon. It was a lot of fun to write, and the reviews from other users suggest they very much enjoyed it as well.
In the Spirit of Love
Another one-shot I wrote as part of Typhoonmaster's one-shot competition, it featured an elderly Sokka confronting his feelings about the circumstances surrounding Yue's death. It was a pretty big departure from the stuff I usually write (read - I suck at writing romance), but it was interesting to challenge myself to write something outside my comfort zone.

"Me : Is this some new Republic City knitting circle I haven't heard of. Lostris : Yes, yes it is. And you better watch out, they have some mean pointy needle attack." — Lady Lostris on the newest threat to Republic City, the Triple Thread Triads
"Twas barely a year ago that I was editing down yonder way when I stumbled across a young fellow in need of assistance. As my mother had raised me with the manners of a gentleman, I extended my hand and offered to aid him in his ails. He was a courteous fellow for sure and thanked me for my help, though it was no problem on my part. We continued on together for a way, chortling over a couple of humourous anecdotes, before bidding one another farewell with a doff of our caps. It was a pleasant encounter, and I was glad to have made the young fellow's acquaintance." — A Chance Encounter by HammerOfThor
