This started as a story request by my friend, Zeal, for our friend’s birthday (Yarred) and was originally intended to be ~8,000 words long; that was the maximum word count I felt comfortable working with for these types of stories. I was really excited to write this, since it took place in the ATLA/LOK universe and we were all very familiar with the source material. So after brushing up on the source material and planning out the story, I started to write. And write. And write. And write….And write…
Next thing I knew, I had my first story that would be brought to completion that’s over 10K words long! The grand total came out to 11,390 words! After all’s said and done, I’m so happy to have reached that milestone in my writing abilities. I’ll be honest, though, I kinda wanted to keep going with the story, adding more plot lines, characters, locations, etc. But most of the time, the best ending isn’t one that’s wrapped up nice and neat in a little package; things can be left open-ended, whether intentional or not.
Again, to Zeal and Yarred, I apologize that this ended up being a month overdue; I hope you guys still like it, as well as anyone else who decides to read this.
