thought you mentioned them burning that skeleton way back when they first found it, watertribe guy saw them burning bones and scattering ash in the water didn't he?
also the black powder in fireworks is NOT coal

iirc one of the writers claimed the world was a third the size of earth and this is a complete map. something about nonbenders jumping too high?

This story is absolutely *amazing*. It took me two days to read it and it was so... Intricate? You can tell there's a lot of research and effort in this and all the seemingly minor details are really interesting to read. If you ever write a sequel I'd be glad to read it!

to be fair the wine thing was about national resources, figured their own generals were less likely to destroy them like in the next chapter where you had fong tearing up the airbender's fields. some of those vines have been going for centuries, you can't just rip them up and plant new ones and expect it to be the same
which makes it even more retarded that a generation or so back they changed the tax laws and forced a bunch of farmers to destroy these same old vines

which episode is this? what did ang do to weaken his reality and start hallucinating

I don't understand the retardness of some of that movie's hate. it's got plenty of reasons to hate it on it's own merits, but never because of some sjw buzzword.
the live action movie "whitewashed" less than the cartoon ever did.
besides they are not and never were 'asians' they are 'air nomads' and 'earth kingdom'

Katara's voice shook, and her hand clenched painfully on Aang's shoulder. "How could you? They killed everyone. Every sky bison. Every child!"
would that really bother a watertribe?
I wouldn't think it should, didn't the cultures they're based on practice total war? and in this story hasn't it been said more than once that "civilian" isn't a term watertribe recognized? air wasn't water tribe, is katara doing a "friend of a friend" thing where they are by extension of her accepting aang as part of her's?

on 2nd look, maybe i misunderstood and this isn't an earthbender thing, maybe it's a dai li thing. i could buy them taking inspiration from the firebender's loyalty thing to mindbend their agents against harming the city. (hopefully that was what you meant and you'd keep it limited to something like that)

Breaking your contract with the city-! part of his soul shrieked.
"Yes," Quan whispered, trying to catch his breath just before another barred gateway. "I am."
I know what this will cost me. I just don't care anymore.
ok, i could maybe buy the water tribe not realizing what breaking family means and how rarely it might come up explicitly(i'm not sure even katara would know what happened there. is aang not family to her anymore or something?)(especially with the only real way it'd come up being 'those you do not name' with all the massive cognitive dissonance katarra seems to show is involved in dehumanizing them to that degree before you push). but for earth to feel and KNOW EXACTLY what is happening if they break certain types of oath, and for this to be so very very close to the fire loyalty from the outside?
there is absolutely no way earth kingdom wouldn't understand that firebenders are bound to ozai and die if they fail to obey, they'd just substitute "contract" for "loyalty" whenever it's spoken with a big L
you've taken the au elements overboard in a way that is no longer internally consistent and so shatters suspension of disbelieve. (especially since the loyalty quirk seems to be a property of firebending being the result of inhuman ancestry. are badgermoles particularly fond of contracts? are earth kingdom biologically related to badgermoles now? it worked for fire because they were 'all a little bit spirit')

I don't think you know what bugs taste like
then again avatar's wildlife is chimeric enough their bugs might be
| Guest chapter 32 . 10/2
and you've just shattered the core premise of the story. if the loyalty quirk isn't unique to the firenation but others(at least water for certain) have something similar then none of this works

what is wrong with you people
katara's delusional avatar fixation and racism are catching badly enough sokka managed to slip in a conversation where he acknowledges it's happening.
she's dragging everybody around her crazy. time to push her off the ice
| Guest chapter 26 . 10/1
sokka was kidnapped by a forest spirit (long before the gaang ruined the library) got bodily dragged into the spirit world and everything. that seems a far more appropriate basis for his "spirit touched-ness" than the book thing

if your katarra wanted to heal why in cannon would she have thrown such a massive tantrum about refusing to learn to do so in the north pole?

awesome, you're giving us summaries for the bits you skipped now, /and/ pointing out the differences. that's a great improvement over the last time
