Author has written 4 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, and Young Justice.

Hey! I'm TheOnlyWayOut and welcome to my profile.

I'm a grammarian and a spelling stickler (due to so many misspellings of my first name), so if you find any errors in my stories- no matter how small- please let me know.

I support any and all canon pairings, so do not expect anything different unless I decide to write a crack fic.

Fandoms/Favorites: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Community, Ender's Game/Shadow, The Flash, Full Metal Alchemist, Harry Potter, Impulse (comics), Legend of Korra, Naruto, Teen Titans (comics and show), and Young Justice (comics and show)

Stories I'm Working On:

I'm currently working on an AU Young Justice fic called "Everymen". I'm finally writing new material for it although the updates will be sporadic and less frequent than they were.

No more A:TLA fics are in progress right now, though I may be inspired when the new LoK season airs.

Reluctant Hero by P.A.W.07 reviews
"It was an accident." That was what Zuko had said to his crew when he used an element he hadn't been meant to. He wasn't the Avatar. The Avatar was supposed to be in the Earth Kingdom, hidden by its walls. Unless the old Avatar had died long ago ... and had already been replaced sixteen years ago. AU.

Bringing Out the Blue by maguena1 reviews
AU. The arrow injured the Blue Spirit instead of knocking him out, and Aang never found out his identity. Zuko made a Plan to find out more about the Avatar. He didn't expect so many truths to come from the lies.

Second Chances by meltinglacier reviews
By all rights, they should be dead. Yet they weren't. They had been given a second chance at life, and all they had to do was stop fighting the merging. Lust couldn't see that; she was still resisting. Troublesome woman.

Second Nature by lazyartisan reviews
Destiny is a funny thing-Zuko's season 2 story arc takes a radical turn after he is captured at the North Pole. One event can change so much- and so little. Plotbending, character exploration and a grittier more realistic portrayal of the Avatar World.
