Author has written 30 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender.

Name: Em Dixon (I'm a lady, by the way)

What I think I'm doing: Finding my muse again. I can't concentrate on my own fiction, so I figured I'd concentrate on someone else's for a while. Avatar: The Last Airbender quickly captured my imagination, and I've got my own head-canon. I'm total Zutara, and unapologetic about it. There are many things about the series that didn't sit well with me, but that's what fanon's for, isn't it? Fanfiction has actually made me like Avatar even more.

So, here, I'll house my multi-chap, post-war, somewhat AU (because my head-canon takes a different turn after The Western Air Temple) fic. Depending on how I feel, I may drabble a bit. At the end of this experiment, hopefully my muse will stop hiding from me, and I won't have to break out the pipe wrench again.

edit: So! That original plan somehow got thrown to the wayside in favor of something I'm enjoying a lot more. All my fics take place at the same point in my oddly extensive head canon, and you may be able to find reference to one fic in another. I'm still a Zutara shipper, and I don't care for your shipping wars. I appreciate reviews. Not only do they let me know you're reading, but they let me know what you like (or don't) about the fic.
