Earth. Fire. Air. Water. When I was a boy, my father, Avatar Aang, told me the story of how he and his friends heroically ended the Hundred Year War. Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko transformed the Fire Nation colonies into the United Republic of Nations, a society where benders and nonbenders from all over the world could live and thrive together in peace and harmony. They named the capital of this great land Republic City. Avatar Aang accomplished many remarkable things in his life, but sadly, his time in this world came to an end. And like the cycle of the seasons, the cycle of the Avatar began anew.

“Do you have any idea what my home life was like? Growing up with six sisters who looked *exactly* like me? It was like I didn’t even have my own name. I joined the circus because I was scared of spending the rest of my life as part of a matched set. At least I’m different now. Circus freak is a compliment!”

I loved Ty Lee with her chi-blocking fighting style! 

More Watertribe Lance
Also avatar Lance this time because we talked about this with friends and we are lance trash we wondered what kind of pet Lance would have if he was the avatar… Like Aang has Appa and Korra has Naga.

And we ended up with a Peacock-Lion because it just suits him perfectly

(also it was supposed to be Keith’s pet -bc yeah it’s definitely more a firenation-ish beast- but things happened ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) i’ll write headcanons someday lmao)

I’ve seen a couple of Voltron Avatar AUs, and overwhelmingly the consensus is firebender Keith (which makes sense, considering his element, and the galra) but if I’m going to split hairs here: a significant part of Keith’s character is there’s a lot of his history and himself that he doesn’t know, and I take a little issue with the idea of Keith being overtly raised in the fire nation. 

Now that’s not to say you couldn’t swing it, but consider: 

Keith who grew up in Earth Nation and has always just figured he’s a nonbender because he’s clearly no earthbender. And per canon he’s an orphan so it isn’t as if he can reference with anyone.

Keith who’s kind of the team Sokka except instead of the boomerang guy in the middle of all of these elemental wielders he’s the sword guy for a long time. (and I like the idea of nonbender Coran as well so, hey, solidarity is exciting) and then the first time he firebends nobody is more confused than Keith

Bonus points: Keith even after the revelation forgetting he is a firebender. Several times. “What do you mean we can’t start a campfire?” “I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but it’s pouring rain outside. All the firewood I could find is wet, we have to wait for it to dry.” “can’t you just-” “…oh. Yeah. right.”

And Coran is Finally done after 500 years
He’s a rope bender XD

(Lance, Keith, Shiro, Hunk, Pidge, Allura,  All of ‘em)

Avatar The Last Air bender AU

Lance = Water bender
Keith = Fire bender
Shiro = Air bender
(The last living from a small family that survived the genocide 100 years ago)
Pidge and Hunk = Earth benders (Pidge will become a metal bender)
Coran = Non-bender
Allura = Avatar, Air bender

Fire Nation = Galra

(Coran is not from the Air nomads originally. He met Alfor and his flying bison and after getting to know him more he was able to get to visits the air temple and fell in love with the place. he studied with them, and learned a lot, but since he’s a non bender he uses everything around him if he has to fight)

Voltron Avatar AU

Lance:
• Avatar
• You can pry this concept out of my cold, dead hands.
• From the Northern water bending tribe
• Likes to keep his powers on the downlow, despite his constant braggery and boasting with his waterbending finesse (insert average abilities here)
• Is actually really good with healing. Like super good.
• Loves his super large family but wishes to leave and explore the world, wants to learn to bend his other talents from people his age.

Keith:
• Fire bender (I just yeah)
• This boy is such a fire bender don’t even talk to me
• Father was a nonbender in the middle of no where
• Mother was a fire bending champion in the Fire Nation. Got lost on a trip. Met Keith’s father and boom baby Keith.
• Stayed with his father all his life
• Meet’s Lance one day as Lance travels through. Immediately despises Lance’s personality and the secrets.
• Lance leaves with a new fire bending rival

Shiro:
• Unknown
• Bending taken away, Amon style, so he’s a non bender now
• Doesn’t remember his original bending abilities.
• Let’s just say he was taken by the Fire Nation, turned into the Champion despite his bending being taken away, and messed with.
• Doesn’t have his metal arm, just a stump where it used to be.
• His and Keith’s past is unknown.

Pidge:
• Non bender
• Relies on science more than anything
• Lives in the Earth Kingdom with Hunk and Lance
• Can make almost anything
• Grudge against Fire Nation, which took her father, brother, and Shiro in a peaceful scouting mission a while ago

Hunk:
• My cinnamon child is an earth bender.
• Really really good at it too
• Immediately hits it off with Lance when Lance is passing through
• Offer’s to teach Lance to earth bend
• Best friends ever since

Galra Empire is very obviously the Fire Nation, with Lotor’s story almost like Zuko’s in my eyes. Except, Lotor doesn’t redeem himself and is a conniving bastard, but inherits the throne nonetheless.

Allura and Coran are one of the last living Air Nomads.
