. While he has a peculiar art style, it's admittedly not his forte, but he's a great thinker and an excellent
writer, backed up with a philosophy degree. He even took over the steering wheel of the project when I was in Italy.
So it was only logical to thank him in some manner, so I essentially drew some fan arts of his fan fiction entitled His Dream Of Skyland
. Now, when you think of fan fiction, you usually think of a few pages, right? Not this one, this story has the proportions of a novel
. It takes several seconds
to load on my PDA, it took a significant portion of my trip to and from Italy to read half
His Dream of Skyland is essentially the story of Avatar re-imagined in the Sino-Japanese war. With frightening detailed accuracy he tells the Avatar story with elements from that era. It's intriguing to find the parallels between both worlds and his writing style sucks you right in.
If you are a fan of Avatar, I strongly recommend you read it, but at the same time, be warned that it's going to be a big endeavor to get through all of it. Also, the story isn't finished yet, so once you read it all, there's more on the way.
Okay, this is becoming more of a plug than the actual deviation (but I think it's somewhat justified after yesterday's epic update). So what you see here are Sokka and Katara as depicted in the story. They're inhabitants of a small village in Mongolia, just next to the Chinese border, Sokka is its only soldier and Katara is pretty much shoved in the stereotypical female gender role of that time, albeit learning a thing or two about medicine and meditation from her grandmother.
