Just read all of this . Fucking amazing

Oh, snap! I'm a big fan of the Mythos, so the moment I saw the title, I was interested. You did an awesome job with blending the two realms. Also enjoy Sokkla, so the hints are, together with the promise of more Mythos goodness, plenty enough to have me haring after the sequel. Thanks for writing! Cthulhu phtagn... for now.

Let me guess: Losing the support of Mai and Ty Lee and then losing to Zuko and Katara finally brought down the wall that Azula had created in her mind to keep back the knowledge forced upon her by the Shoggoth. With all of her supports gone and her ambitions thwarted, she gave in to the madness at last. I'm going to look forward to reading this sequel.

Very nicely done! Your timing of the fic, set between Books 2 and 3, was great. The use of "At the Mountains of Madness" as the setting for the horrors faced by Sokka and Azula was well-thought out. I'm not too sure about Sokkla, but I am intrigued by the idea of Azula eventually finding redemption for her actions during the war. Nice job blending "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "The Cthulhu Mythos" together into a fic.

And a look into the mindset of the Fire Nation's leadership in general and of Azula in particular. Nice.
If the Mythos were reality, humanity would need to unite in the face of such powerful horrors, but wouldn't give any nation the right to unify them through force. That would only serve to divide the human race further, weakening them in the face of the real threat.

In the Cthulhu Mythos, people like Sokka, the practical kind, have an advantage over the philosophic type, such as Azula and Aang; they're able to accept the horrible truth. (This is my least favorite part of the Mythos, BTW.) Good job of writing that out.

To look upon one's own species as though they were alien, to know an alien city's planning and architecture, and to possess the knowledge that a Shoggoth has, what a nightmare. I feel sorry for Azula at this point.

There is nothing more alien than a thing that finds us alien. Very good writing, really caught the horror of the Cthulhu Mythos here. I couldn't help but shiver after reading this. Good job!

And the situation goes from simple survival to Lovecraftian horror for poor Sokka. He has no idea how bad it's going to get.
| MartyrFan chapter 13 . 8/17/2016
There's almost nothing creepier than the accounts of a failed expedition to Lovecraft country. The Mountains of Madness are making good on their name.
| MartyrFan chapter 11 . 8/17/2016
Enter the forbidden tome full of horrible knowledge. When you come across an old book in Lovecraft country, either leave it alone or figure out a way to read it without going insane.
| MartyrFan chapter 10 . 8/17/2016
Nothing's more awkward than mortal enemies sharing body heat in a survival situation, especially when one of them starts dreaming about their crush. And it's also bad when one of them dreams about wet, slithering sounds in the middle of the South Pole.

"Firebender jerky". Classic Sokka, with a touch of the disturbing. Nicely done.
| MartyrFan chapter 3 . 8/17/2016
And two enemies are left in the ashes of an experiment in warfare and flight. BTW, you chose a great time to base this adventure in: the time period of a few weeks between Books 2 and 3. Good thinking there.

I came across this fic a few months ago on AO3. I waited on reading it until I'd seen "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and read "On the Mountains of Madness". I'm really looking forward to reading this in its entirety as I really like the idea of crossing Lovecraft's works with other fandoms. This looks really promising!
