Alright. I’ve had this idea for a korra fic for…quite awhile actually. I only play around with it occasionally but when I first got it I had quite a few ideas to actually take it somewhere. I wrote a basic outline with undetailed plot points and all that jazz.
This story is a sort of AU/crossover thing. I kind of combined Canaan/LOK/Maximum Ride into one story. So if you liked any of those series, this might actually interest you. If you’ve only heard of one of them, here’s the basic summary.
The White Lotus is an organization dedicated the research and enhancement of ordinary people. They alter their DNA and train them to become what they like to call “the perfect soldier”.
Unfortunately for them, they’ve never been able to achieve that with all of their past subjects. Nevertheless, they record all their data and try different combinations of tests, chemicals, and what have you until they achieve their ultimate goal.
In order to keep everything balanced out, they cycle through each element, always taking a test subject from each element. Once that test subject dies a failure, they set out for a new one. For years they’ve been unsuccessful, never being able to create their perfect soldier.
Until they find Korra that is.
A small Southern Water Tribe child who has discovered her water bending abilities at a premature age of 4 years old. They take her in and begin running tests, injecting chemicals and altering her inner nerves and DNA to create “the Avatar”.
Well, this time it actually works. Finally they have created someone who can bend all four elements. They begin to train her in the ways of the elements as well as hand-to-hand combat, wielding weaponry, and shooting guns. (This will most likely be past a time of the 20’s because I want to use more modernized guns.)
Anyway, blah blah blah, stuff happens, Korra thinks her parents are dead, Katara’s in this somewhere, Korra realizes that she has a faint connection to those tested before her stuff like that.
She goes to Republic City and realizes that Amon threatens the White Lotus and her as well. (So there might be some bender vs. non-bender stuff but it’s mainly between the White Lotus/Korra and Amon.)
Anyway, there’s fighting, Korra shoots fucking guns and kicks ass, maybe some romance, suspense, mystery, and a couple of plot twists.
Not convinced yet?
I’ll include the rough and unedited prologue beneath the cut.
