It’s Toa Hahli! This is for the art division of The Legend Continues contest on BZPower. I imagine G2 Hahli would have a grand old time, because she’d get to be awesomely animated again, and all the enemies she’d go up against would be a walk in the park for her.
This game takes place after Twilight Princess, and Calamity Ganon is a horrific spider with, apparently, the head/skull of Ganondorf - that head having a different, longer beard than Twilight Princess Ganondorf’s body had when he ‘died’ in Twilight Princess.
So if I have this right, Zelda of her own volition went back to Hyrule Castle and stayed there, alone, “holding Ganon” for 100 years, waiting for Link’s resurrection.
She somehow, in those intervening years, learned enough about Ganon’s motivations to say for certain that he’d given up on reincarnation.
All I’m hearing here is “Zelda spent 100 years holding Ganon and learning everything about him.” So… I’d like to read a fanfiction answering some pressing questions I have.
What were those 100 years like? (Apparently, Zelda was aware that whole time, since she talks about how she watched over Link.)
Where was she staying in the castle?
Where did Princess Zelda get the Bow of Light?
When/how did she figure out that Ganon had “turned his back on reincarnation?” Did she talk to him?
When exactly did Ganon become like the “pure enraged” version in this game?
If it was so evil and enraged, why did Ganon do basically nothing except for bringing all the monsters Link killed back to life during the Blood Moon? What was Ganon doing that whole 100 years?
When or where did Ganon/dorf get that sweet beard?
Now… as for that last scene… I
must admit that I’ve read hundreds, if not thousands, of korrasami
fics, and by far, yours is the one with the most fidelity to each
character’s personality. Not that it is necessarily a bad thing when
writers write characters OOC, but it’s a wonderful thing to read the
characters in their element, especially since we still don’t have
comics… ugh, the wait is killing me! So this is a very nice breath
of fresh air.
I love these
characters! My fundamental goal is to continue the characters and
world we love from the show as smoothly as possible, while getting to
explore them deeply. I don’t have a 13 episode time-limit, so I can
dwell and linger and explore all those many, many open threads the
show left us!
And wow. That Korrasami ending was just wow. It was raw,
touching and moving. Exactly what I look for in Korrasami fics.
You’ve got yourself a fan.
to admit, I enjoy the gushing. Here’s more!
Ahhhhh! I love this! It has what I
want from a Legend of Korra story! Korra/Asami, Korra *and* Asami
being awesome together and apart, with their own storylines.
Our two leading
gals are front and center, and they deserve nothing less! Their
relationship hits the ground running—they have a lot of emotional
baggage to catch each other up on. Still, they are very in love and
very dorky and that’s just wonderful.
Admittedly, I read this chapter
a few times. Or at least the korrasami parts, because I’m a huge
sap. I know. Sue me. It’s your fault for writing fluff so damn
others agree! Not that it’s a fluff-centric fic… far from it.
Ugh. Why don’t you rip my heart out
and throw it in a shredder, why don'cha?! All whining aside, one of
the things I love the most about this story is that you’re taking the
time to ask all the hard questions that were left open-ended when the
show ended. In a way, that was good because–aaah ma guudness, look
at all the lovely fanfics! But on the other hand, they were NAGGING
questions, and not every fanfic has covered them! Jeesh! But we’re so
lucky you decided to write this!
I’ve been writing
for years, but never ventured into fanfic before. Korra is something
special to me—in my personal life, certainly. But also, so few
shows end so openly—the series resolved well, but there’s still so
many questions up in the air!
(Plus, more than a few nagging
little plot holes that are easily fixed by filling them with angst.)
Wow (as the little Asami’s would
say) this is one of the best fanfics I’ve read in a while; I really
like the way you are handling all of the arcs and base part of the
story on plot holes left by te series. Something tells that the
Avatarvetse is going through the a series of revolutions similar to
those of the end of the 19th century + some more modern movements, I
really like the parallels, specially with what is going on with the
red lotus and fire nation. I generally don’t like OCs in fanfics,
but yours are really interesting, I specially like Nuktik. He has so
many things to deal with! Can’t wait till Korra gets to the fire
nation to Deal With everything, give the poor kid a break (and some
more loving!). I’ll be waiting for the update, I bet it’s gonna be
great (but take your time!)
this a Korrasami fic? Well, yes, it very much is, but the scope is
way broader than our two favorite gals. They’re both major world
leaders and the world is still in flux. The decisions Asami and Korra
make will impact how all that turns out. No pressure!
As for original
characters—there’s a few. Just as every season introduced a few new
faces to the cast, to compliment the plot and expand the world. But if there’s anybody in the show you’re looking
for, odds are that they’re in here. I think right now Tahno and Gommu
are the only characters ‘of note’ that haven’t been included to some
degree? Did you even remember who Gommu was?
I have to compliment to you, because
you’re expanding this fiction to a lot of Avatar’s world we didn’t
see, at least in Korra’s days. It seems kinda difficult to manage all
this mess, but you’re doing it extremely well.
surprised myself how well I’m pulling some of it off! Come for the
Korrasami fluff—and there’s a LOT of fluff, especially early—stay
to watch me juggle.
As you can tell, I’m rather well…
invested in your fic. It’s been a great ride so far and your writing
is superb! Especially considering the many threads you are weaving.
Yours is a thoroughly engaging tale and I’ll be waiting eagerly for
the next chapter.
didn’t have to wait for long—other than a brief hiatus during
winter break, I’ve been updating this fic consistently every two
weeks. I’ve got chapters pre-written nearly through the finale, and I
know how this all ends… it is gonna be great. Also, lengthy.
The writing is so smooth and nearly
flawless that it’s not a hard read, which is always a plus especially
when reading fics. The characters behave so closely to canon that it
just feels natural. Basically, things that are normally hard for fic
writers to accomplish seem so effortless here, which is one of the
main reasons I’ll keep reading. Also, the concept of guns in the
avatar universe is a really interesting idea and I really want to see
how that plays out and how Korra and Asami’s views will clash. I feel
it’s a very good conflict to bring up and in some ways it might even
end up as a commentary on how guns are treated in our world, I’ll
just have to keep reading and see. Lovely chapter!
course I point out compliments to my writing, but… guns?
not the central focus of the story—that’s the characters, and
Korrasami in particular—but they are the aspect that sets it apart
from other fics. It’s not exactly a spoiler—they get brought up in
chapter 1—but I was way more interested in how the various
characters react to them than the guns themselves. I love this
world and I love it’s characters… but as a writer, I’m interested
in action, and consequence. There’s not much more direct a metaphor
for that than pulling a trigger.
The story is not
pro-gun. The story is not anti-gun. The story is one in which guns
exist… and the world has to figure out what that means.
Alright, let me just say that I am
very upset right now. I have now caught up with this amazing,
intense, well written, and complex story, and Korra STILL has not
found out about the guns!!! Like seriously yo! I don’t even know why
I want the drama that’s gonna happen as much as I do but I NEED IT!
It probably has something to do with the fact that you write fluff so
well that I’m positive the angst and drama that’s about to be
unleashed is gonna be ASTOUNDING!!
Somebody gets it.
Oh. My. God.
Yaaasss!!! This chapter was amazing in every way. I’ve been
waiting too long for the 'shit hits the fan’ chapter but it was
definitely worth it.
worst part there is… the shit had only begun to hit the fan.
so madddddddd. Ughhhh. You’re so awesome though, why you do
this? Anyway, very much good luck to you in grad school (yikes!)
And specially kudos to you for taking on this beast of a story as
eloquently as you have in the midst of that (I myself barely
hang). But yeah. Update soon! (End this perpetually familiar
But as bad as
things get in this story—and they do wind up getting pretty
bad—that’s all a down-payment on the triumph I have planned for the
end. How well can Asami and Korra weather this storm? Spoilers: I
love them and would never leave them unhappy. But getting there…
That’s where the fun is.
You want mad? I’m mad!!
Not really. This is one of the best expansive fics
around and I’m super stoked you keep updating it. All the different
plot lines are well thought out even as they twist around each other
and meet up. Can’t wait for more!
