Bonus if Jinx and Artemis get into a fight (before or after the Hive Five's capture), ripe with insinuations and subtle questions concerning Wally and the other's relationship with him, despite the fact that neither will ever admit to actually liking him.
Love isn't the only thing Wally is in denial about when he, Artemis, and Kaldur get blasted into another world with Firebenders, Avatars, and magical spirits around every corner.

Utopia is the answer. Ba Sing Se. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.

The Comet actually allowed Ozai to transcend to some on-high being of pure fire and energy, literally making him The Phoenix King. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/
June is a 'Good' Folk, along with several others. While she finds humans to be a somewhat more interesting breed than her own ("You're all so...sentimental. Except for a few I've seen. I am sure those one have enough Fae blood in them to see past the veil."), she likes nothing better than to hunt them down. "But only the bad ones."
Evil has loved ones

( To be Continued's )
And a lot before that chapter is starting to make me cringe. Wow, I was such a newb. I like to think I've improved, but I'm biased, aren't I? I mean, back then, I thought I was writing Gold, and was that even a year ago? Maybe two. Give it a few more years, if I'm still doing this - and short of the Rapture, death, carpal tunnel, various other things, I probably will be - and I'll look back and think the same thing. I suppose that's why I haven't deleted all (most) of my old stories: it shows my progress.
I wonder if I'll have any of these written anytime soon, and how I'll use 'working' on these as an excuse to not update my other fics.
Earth has long since been a difficult world to inhabit. The space stations on other planets and moons are home to most. Technology, medicine, economy - Gaoling and Basingse are the main places to be.
The Phoenix Syndicate has warred with the other rival gangs - because gangs are the ones who really run things - and has already annihilated one of the other major players. One of them though managed to escape them - a rather important one (Now what translates into super Avatar in high-techese - um...probably some special android or just leave him as is or make him both). That one boy, however, just might be the key to ending the gang wars. Him, two siblings from a weaker but fierce gang, and an out of favor 'prince'.
(The gang thing comes from the fact that Ozai and the Fire Nation are all about RESPECT *points to Zuko's face* and HONOR *points to Zuko Season 1* and TERRITORY *pulls out a map of the Avatar world*. Oh, the Fire Nation is also about POWER (=money, politics, etc...) and GLORY *Azula*. Can't forget about those. The N., S. Mafia is more a 'family/loyalty' thing.)
But this is all merely the backdrop to a story about a bounty hunter who gets mixed up with a freaking samurai (he's not really a samurai, but it's like year 2200 and the guy has a sword) with the most interesting people trying to kill him and offering way too much money for her to refuse.
The Phoenix Synidicate will operate like a family business with the emphasis being more on business than family. Ozai took over from his father after the old man died. His brother Iroh made no objections and spends his days at his tea shop, playing Pai Sho (Iroh is a bit more...slick than in the show. And more detatched.) Their main headquarthers is located on Mars.
Water tribes become North Mafia and South Mafia (North South Mafia? NSM?). I like that word, Mafia. I think I'll have them set up like either the Irish or Roman mob. Man...I'm gonna have to do research and stuff.
Air nomads were neutral go-between, but they got sneaky one day and the Phoenix made them the first to go. Temple Boyz(s?) or the Specialists.
Although I can hear Aang saying, "Trust me. I'm a Specialst."
Kingdom Brawlers. Bedrock Crew. Jade Gang. Or I could be totally unoriginal in the slightest and call them the Dai Li. I mean, I wouldn't possibly be able to come up with something better than that. And all these others can be just smaller pieces of the whole run by Long Feng with Kuei as the puppet. No reason to fix what ain't broken with that one. (At the very least I should finish Silver Lining before I do this. Maybe I'll write an outline... And maybe the sky will turn to fire and my nose will fall off.)
(I'm not sure if I should make the Mafia or the smaller segments of the Dai Li the crazy gangbanger types or not. Maybe just the South Mafia and a couple of the them Dai Li would be like that.)
And of course, the Order of the White Lotus will remain what it is. An organization dediced in philosphy, truth, and beauty. And tea, destroying corruption and being awesome when the situation calls for it. - "So basically, it's the Phoenix Syndicate, the South and North Mafia, and the Dai Li...against the Order of the White Lotus. Have you guys considered a name change? Maybe something that doesn't include a flower?"
And of course there is the standard galactic government, which is a bit of a problem because Kuei aka Long Feng carries some weight in that arena. I think, maybe...
Rather than a shirshu, I'm thinking Nyla (did you know he was actually a boy?) is going to be the super-computer that runs her ship, like an Artificial Intelligence. To be precise, N.Y.L.A (what does that stand for? You're asking me?) was a payment for a job to June's father after tracking someone or other down for a hacking, engineer genius. He would have rather not given it to them, but it was either that or June's dad was getting his liver. N.Y.L.A is a brilliant piece of work, learning and adapting itself to any technology it's introduced to, from being able to run facial-recognition databases to maintaining the inner-workings of June's space cruiser to brewing the perfect cup of tea.
It's mainly going to be about Piandao and June because, you know, I'm obsessing right now. The idea isn't really original because 'Menamebephil' has this story on FF starring Piandao as head of the Order and running around being awesome and June's in it, and it's more about Azula than Zuko because well...that would just ruin it. However, his is set in the normal A:tLA universe and done as a 'For Want of a Nail' thing.
Sokka and Katara will appear - not starring though. Aang. (What will Appa translate into? A ship, I suppose, roomy and capable of off world travel. Very advanced tech, which was mostly lost with the whole Specialists group.) Long Feng. Kuei. Toph. The Guru. The FN Royal Family and friends. Zhao. Bumi. The OWL. Hakoda. Yue. Pakku. Kanna. Arnook
Zuko - He simply wouldn't be Zuko if he could keep his mouth shut. He unintentionally pisses Ozai off in a major way, resulting in him being burned/scarred for life/dishonored and dumped on Callisto (one of Jupiter's moons, it's mainly made up of ice and rock - not ideal for firebenders of any kind) to handle the 'trade' their (and stay out of the way.).
Azula - She's the princess who likes to play dangerous games. Her time is spent keeping the underlings in line, learning the general way of things, and making sure that everyone who has heard her names trembles. Basically the same old, sadistic girl everyone knows and...stuff.
SECONDARY PSYCHOPATH - Charismatic psychopath
Ozai - As Iroh's baby brother, he never felt that he got the respect he deserved - never Iroh's, never father's... With the position and power he had, he couldn't be satisfied. He wanted more, but his father seemed to live by the philosophy of 'You'll have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands'.
Why, yes, he is a sociopath. And a narcissist. And a psychopath. Or do those things contradict, since with one the person doesn't feel emotions?
Azulon - During his rule, the Syndicate focused a large portion of its money on advances in pharmaceuticals and ways to live longer, fuller lives. Weeks before his pet project was, he died - the circumstances were suspect, nothing was proven, and Ozai took control with no protest from the rightful heir.
Ursa - Um...one thing for sure, she's no Miss Butterscotch-Sunshine.
Iroh - He is willing to help his nephew if he'd only ask. However, he truly seems to want nothing to do with the rest of his family and former life, so it would seem. But when Zuko does ask for his assisstance, he has his manager run the shop while they and their crew galivant across the galaxy in search of (amnesiac Specialist Avatar Aang) the person who broke into one of their warehouses.
Jee - he is the Lieutenant and Second in Command on Zuko's ship.
Mai - Bodygaurd, friend, attack-dog, assassin...
Ty Lee -
OCs not yet created...
I'm not sure if there are still benders in this or if they'll be something else...Well, yes, the benders remain. That's part of the fun of the fandom anyway.
Perhaps they've been upgraded some. The Firebenders have evolved more into a different kind of Energybenders, like just Lightning. It's become a more controlled thing than just shooting off massive bolts, and it's a very exclusive ability. However, there are still those who can/only able to use just Fire.
Technically, they're no longer on Earth for the most part, so Earthbenders have upgraded to Metalbending. (I wonder, could they possibly bend bone or is that just messed up? I mean, ashes to ashes, dust to dust and all that.)
Airbenders bend air. You can't change air so yeah. Of course, they don't so much now with most of them being dead, the few alive being in hiding, and the one that has to just waking up out of cryogenesis(sp?) by one curious woman and her downright disagreeable brother.
And the Waterbenders...well, people still need water, so they wouldn't have to change. However, Bloodbending has become a more acceptable thing, and the Mafias reside on a planet/station (Neptune has the most water, right? I'm going to have to find the Asian names for them.) that is surrounded by moons/ has a constant moon.
Just how do they come into play with this brave new world? I believe they should still exist, but perhaps to a lesser extent than in the show. But it would be so much more interesting if they were involved, but I'm not sure if I could swing all that into what the massive headache I'm creating already. (Ghosts in the machine - type stuff mostly. It depends on what kind of creature I make Aang into.) Definitely no aliens. Unless Aliens = Spirits.
This is actually the first time I've gotten this written out anywhere.
LOL.... I'm such a nerd.
Oh, hey. I just realized I'm going to have to name the chapters after some weird obscure songs. Fuuuuuuuuun!
Okay then. It's an AU futuristic Cowboy Bebop Avatar fusion. What are you going to do with it? Simply retell the story with a different setting? Centralizing it around a different set with the orignal main characters subjected to a footnote here and there?
100 years pre-series. There was a conflict between the Specialists and the Synidicate. The Syndicate felt that the Specialists were cheating them out of their fair share and favored the Dai Li & N.S Mafia over them. They didn't like that because Sozin (their leader at the time) had started to get a big head and eyes bigger than his stomach. He was no longer content to just have control over Caldera; he wanted everything.
His counsel adviced against it until a spy revealed to them (rather convenient) the Specialists were truly working against them. Then they decided that they wouldn't tolerate this disrespect. They used...something (I don't know. maybe it was still a comet) to enhance their bending. This might not be actually important. The Massacre will probably mostly be visited in short flash-backs.
What is the point? What story are you trying to tell here? Or are you merely just wanting to explore this elaborate world?
...I don't be knowin'...
why you ask me?
The OWL Sessions
Anyway, I'm more than willing to hear what anyone has to say about this.
Azulon is over-protective of Azula, who is stifled by it. She's still the perfectionist and terror.
( Zuko and Azula )
Projects to write:
The Tozai or Probation for the Wicked
What to do with this one? The idea is this: After five years, FireLord Zuko has seen fit to offer his father some kind of mercy, completely unwarranted and foolish as it is. Ozai believes it to be a stupid idea, clearly showing it in his attitude and not the least bit greatful. Zuko has learned a thing or two however, and isn't about to let Ozai wander unsupervised. Toph will be his probation officer. The actual point of this, where it will end, I don't know yet. So far, I've got nothing but them trolling everyone. Perhaps Ozai could pick up a new skill since world tyranny and firebending are no longer options.
People to see, Places to go:
Kyoshi Island - Toph threatens to leave him there with Ty Lee
Bah Sing Se
The Sun Warriors
They visit her parents at one point:
( I'm pregnant )
Fic Storm with chromeknickers
( Caught & Released )
The Mai/Jet for nuitsongeur
Crumbs in the Clockwork
These are going nowhere fast. They might not even be worth doing, but I don't want to delete them so here, they are.
0. Match Made by Convenience
Piando needed an heir. In order to get one of those, a man usually needs a wife. It just so happens that the governor of Omashu (New Ozai) has a spare daughter running around somewhere. She's the perfect, Fire Nation lady; she plays the doll. Problem: she's like that all the time. And he's not sure, but she might actually hate him.
"I didn't think that I could ever find a place even more boring than Omashu. Kudos to you, darling."
He wasn't sure if that would have sounded any better if she'd actually used any emotion to word it.
When the princess shows up and 'asks' for his wife to accompany her on a journey to track down her brother, he's not sure. Because, believe or not, he thinks he might actually miss her.
It's when he's about to lay one on Katara that Zuko realizes...this is not is world. He's trapped in fanfiction and so are his friends! But which one's are real and which ones are the others? Now he must find the Avatar and his friends and family and get home. A humor crack fic, obviously. The idea comes from a one-shot that's somewhere in my favorites by...um...roflZuko or something.
2. Rolling Stone
At the end of Avatar, every one got paired up, Zai, Aangtara, Sukka (ha, sucker). Everyone but Toph. That's fine with her though. She's the Blind Bandit; she doesn't need anybody. Yup, we believe that. Which is why she's been wandering the world on her own for the past few years and her most recent 'apprentice' won't take no for an answer. That has nothing to do with the fact that her crush on Sokka decided to morph into love and it doesn't matter, even if he and Suki did break up. 'Cause how stupid is it to tell your best friend you're in love with him?
3. No title
A big huge what if that will probably make a lot of people mad if I don't do it right. What if LuTen had survived and Iroh had died at Bah Sing Se?
4. As Far As I Can Tell...
In Progress under the name Answering the Unquestioned
they're all crazy
One-shot type dealings from the perspective of an outsider, like a servant in the palace, or a worker at the Jasmine Dragon or whatever I can think up. The happenings will focus mostly after the war, but there might be a few during. xSuicunex gave me the idea.
5. What If?
What would the world be like if Aang had gotten frozen still, but there was no war?
6. Definitely Mabye No Sort of Yes (working title. Don't judge me for its suckness!)
In an AU world of no war, Prince Zuko is expected to marry. After being bullied by his wife, Prince Ozai arranges for his son to have options: he can pick his own wife out of six women. Lady Ty Lee orLady Mai of the Fire Nation, Lady Toph or Lady Jin of the Earth Kingdom, or Princess Yue of the Northern Water Tribe or Princess Katara of the Southern Water Tribe. He is so doomed!...and Aang crushing on Katara is so not helping.
7. Personality Swap
What the title says. Mai is bubbly. Katara is sadisitic. Ty Lee is sarcastic. Toph is brooding. Suki is dull. Azula is sane. And the boys are very, very afraid.
8. Machete227's crack!ship pairings
Toph hates parties. Toph does what she wants. Toph leaves the party and goes to visit Ozai for whatever reason. The first visit is the start of lifetime long acquaintance.
9. Avatar Presents: Cinderella
Can't you just see Toph twitching while mice are singing to her and that she has to cry about not being able to go to a party? Tokka
10. Used To (working title)
OzaixUrsa. They're kids...um...I'll go from there
11. Altered Features
If Ozai had been the 'good' brother rather than Iroh, would he still have tried to usurp the throne after Lu Ten died? If so, would it be crazy that he would offer himself in place of his son? No surprise that Ursa doesn't want her husband dead. Long live Fire Lord...
X Men (probably Evo version)
IN progress under the name Far Far Away
12. Rewriting a Cliche
The source of this damsel's distress is her supposed Prince Charming who doesn't seem to understand, 'Thanks for the offer, but I'd rather not marry you' or harsher versions like 'GET AWAY FROM ME OR I WILL KILL YOU!' This Rogue dame just wants to go home. If she's lucky, she might lose her new Shadow. 'There you are, cherie!' She's never had good luck. I figure to put this one in fairy tale form. Yes, Remy will stalk her. He does that. I'll try to limit myself to only twelve chapters at the most for this one...it'll probably end up novel length.
13. Currently Unnamed
Four time travelers from the future pop into the mansion one day. Who are they? Why do they seem vaguely familiar? Wait...does that little girl have red on black eyes? Who's the red headed boy? Is she blue? "Oh, yeah! Go me! I'm awesome! Who da time traverler? I am! I am!" "Yeah, great. Ya do know how to go forward right?" "...yeeeeeeeeea - no." "...I'm gonna kill you now." "No, wait! I'm, um, family!"
14. Nothing Wonderful about It
Yo...you're really touching on something about his pockets being Wonderland. That is crack material right there...and he's the 'King of Hearts'. GASP! Gambit is really a Wonderlandian and he seriously is trying to make Rogue his Queen!
Wait...he blows up his people...whatever. It's ok 'cause it's Remy.
Thank you BB. My idea stemming from Blackberryhuntress's review. I already had an idea close to this but that never occurred.
This will be more than a little epic length and a sort of crossover/takeover of SyFy's Alice. Once again, BB's fault.
15. Mad World
The world is a tragic place when a little girl loses her family and gets thrown in a compound crazy people. She's not crazy. Just because she has voices in her head and knows things she shouldn't possibly know, doesn't mean she's crazy. "You believe me, right?" The idea is slightly jacked from Ted Dekker's The Bride Collector, but not really all of it...but a LOT of it. I love that man's mind.
16. The Awful Truth
Ever seen that Cary Grant movie with Irene Dunn and Mr. Smith? Does anyone even know who those people are? Well I plan on doing a parody of that movie.
Naruto (I want to but I don't but someday I will...maybe)
17. Toad Hermit's Apprentice (working title)
Working with the idea that Ero-Sannin had grown a pair and raised Naruto like he was supposed to, what with him being godfather and all. "Ero-Jiji, why are we outside the bathouses?" "Why are you talking so loud?" Naturally, Jiraiya is still Jiraiya. They will have either Gaara, Sai, or that kid who does that thing with bones.
18. Family Man (I know the title sux)
Considering Kakashi's skill, it wouldn't be unreasonable for him to be sent to a foreign land for an extensive time undercover and what not, and it that time it would not be inconceivable that he would have 'relations' with one of the native woman. But I just don't see anyone thinking for one minute that he'd knock up a foreign kinouichi (I can't spell it. shut up or correct me) and she'd show up four years later with the little Hatake. Just after the Zabuzza arc. I hope I don't make a Mary Sue with this one.
19. Not Alone
Kushina gives birth to twins. The Kyuubi's intelligence is sealed in one, his power in the other.
20. Breaking the Truth
After slaying his clan, Itachi leaves his brother with information that could either get them both killed or help them take out all of Konoha's enemies. Working with the idea that Sasuke is aware of the truth from the beginning and is working with Itachi.
21. Clan Ties (in progress)
The Yondaime is dead and the Kyuubi is sealed. The villagers are calling for the demon vessel's death. Fortunately, the Uzumaki clan has come to resolve the issue of exactly whose protection the child is under. "Mya. You will stay and care for the child." "I would be honored to, Father."
22. No, He's a Clone; we're your partners
It's been done, but I'm plan to do my own version of a YJ/JL crossover.
23. By Technicality...Mentalist/XMenEvo
By technicality, Patrick Jane is not a psychic. An empath and a telepath though...The X Men didn't know what they were getting into when then went to check out this mutant. Especially when she ended up dead. Now, they're suspects to a murder, and Jane is, well, Jane.
AU - Working Title 'Rewind and Play'
Working with the concept that Ozai is not a total bastard; certain people realize that Azulon dying will not solve anything because at present, Iroh is no better; Ursa is more than a baby-making, protective mother; Aang wakes up ten years earlier.
In this, Ozai is the one that takes the divergent path from the 'dark side', with help from his 'nagging' wife, and sets out to put himself on the throne with a decidely different route.
For this, I would be interested to hear anyone's concepts on firebending, Hakoda as a character, how sailing ships works, or anything you'd like to put in. It's going to be a while before this one is very truly started, so don't be shy.
Jun becomes a member of the White Lotus via stubborn pride and entrapment. Bumi thinks it a grand plan to give her to Piandao to mentor under, seeing how she was stalking him to begin with, so it's his fault; Jeong Jeong is just okay with it not being him.
The one where Jun is grumpy, discontent, somewhat irrational and a mother and wife.
Yeah, that one is going to be expansive, like generation spanning. This is going to be one that I don't care if it gets reviews or not or whatever. This one is totally for me. At some point, I'll need to transfer from paper to bytes.
Through the Woods - Expanded
I might continue the oneshot (filled for my meme) since the people on FF are so excited about it. I don't see it, personally. It's decent enough, rather amusing, and will probably make me laugh later.
The concept is Mai/Jet, but not exactly romance because he is fanatically against all things Fire Nation, and Mai has a thing about dirt and bathing, which he's pretty well covered in and doesn't seem to do often. Of course, that's just their personal opinions, which are subject to change. Then there's that whole kidnapping thing, but a little ambush in the woods and personal enmity has never stopped a ship from taking off before.
Mako and Bolin are two brothers in the series who bend fire and earth respectively. That indicates that there is history of both earth and fire-benders in their family tree. I have constructed that tree, even giving names to their mother and father, that will either not be revealed in the series or no doubt be inaccurate.
Farrah + Ishi = Jun
Asnee *+ Ramira *= Piandao(Jun), Kyoyo*, Huojin*, Ziva*, Pricha*
Piandao + Jun = Raiden(Midori), Nami*(Bolin#), Kenshin
Nami + Bolin = Nyla(Lee)
Nyla + Lee = Mako*, Bolin#
Did I not mention that Jundao is my OTCP (one true crack pairing)? At some point, I'll do some kind of story for their 'family'. I mean, I've given them names so why not give them personalities and stories to go with them, right? Right.
And that concludes this bit of rambling.
"It's kinda been insinuated, I think, that he was poisoned. At the funeral, didn't they say he died in his sleep? I don't think she'd want to kill Ozai. He's her husband and they have two kids together. Although, he probably manipulated her head a bit and pointed the finger at his father. I wonder if he actually knew she was going to kill Azulon."
How exactly did Ursa kill Azulon? Did Ozai manipulate her? In what way? Did he intentionally point the finger at his father? Was is it an accident? Did he regret it or feel that is what he deserved for not giving him the throne?
"reply to review reply:
ch2:It was so not a happy ending! Maybe for the rest of the world, but Ozai and Azula got the short end of the stick. And hey, why not make Ozai lose it and Azula get her bending taken? He's way meaner!"
"ch3: I've always just been very 'meh' to her character. She's pretty standard in personality.
The others, yeah, sure. You're welcome!"
So lets see if I can get myself to like Katara.
