To me as for now the best Avatar post war fanfic.

Title: Broken Dragon
Author: nikipinz
Rating: M
Characters/Relationship: Ty Zula, Maiko , Kataang

Brief Summary: Azula rots shackled in prison for a year, broken, without help of doctors. Zuko convinces Aang that her bending must be taken from her. Ty Lee and Mai are the only one to care for her. Mai helps that Azula gets better accomodation and that doctors see to her needs. By then she has already arthritis in wrist and ankle. Ty Lee helps her to escape. Escalation, flight and fight. In the end all meet again and Zuko is determined that Azula has to be hanged.

Short Excerpt: She lay very still, studying Ty Lee's face. She'd done this before, of course. She'd done it with great fervor the morning before, knowing that she was probably going to be hanged soon. But Azula didn't think she'd ever savored it this much before. Her gaze slid lower, to the girl's shoulder, which was rising and falling with each slow breath. Then her eye traveled to the hand that lay near the brown head, curled up like an infant's into a soft fist. Azula slowly moved her hand down to unfold the little acrobat's fingers and weave them into her own. Ty Lee's palm felt warm against hers. Azula savored that, too. She drew the hand up to her mouth and very softly kissed the tip of each finger.

When Azula had finished this little operation, she looked down to find Ty Lee's sleepy gray eyes resting on her. She smiled a bit and, spreading apart the fingers, placed another kiss on the acrobat's palm. Ty Lee stirred, yawned widely, and pulled herself up a bit. “Can I play, too?” she murmured, nuzzling at Azula's jawline. The former princess just smiled and drew the hand higher so she could press her lips to the inside of Ty Lee's wrist. Then she abandoned the arm entirely in favor of cupping the little acrobat's face in her hands. Ty Lee smiled back at her.

Azula couldn't decide if she liked gazing at her lover better when she was awake or asleep. - Perhaps awake, now that she thought about it, if only because then Ty Lee could reciprocate. “Have I ever told you how beautiful you are?” she whispered. Talking didn't hurt nearly as much as it had before they had gone to bed.

Why It's Good: Amazingly written, huge plot twists, without one single typo as far as I can say that, all characters well IC.

Link: The Broken Dragon on dA and Broken Dragon on ff.net. The authoress prefers reading and commenting it on dA ^-^

TophStd
Title: The Princess and the Thief
Author: MTL76
Rating: T
Characters/Relationship: Azula, OC, whole Gaang incl. Iroh, Ty Lee, Mai
Brief Summary: Approx 1 year after the end of the war, Azula is freed by a hired thief from Ba Sing Se, Nazumi, and brought to the ones who paid him for that work and who promised to bring Azula to power and give her the revenge she wants.
But they are in real the servants of a known dark powerful spirit who want's revenge on all humanity. Also includes a neat idea how the Si Wong Desert was created.
In the end the evil ones are defeated and the world is saved once again, but won't say no more here to not spoil you.

Short Excerpt: [from Ch. 4: Fight and Flight] Azula looked at the men. There was a time when they would have obeyed her every command, would have died for her. Now, she was a common criminal. It was so ridiculous, she didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. What did one say in a situation like this? She would have to try and bluff her way past. “Soldier, I've no wish to hurt you or your men. As your Fire Lord, I order you to stand aside and let us pass.”

This seemed to galvanize the soldiers, but not in the way Azula had intended. The rest of them drew their weapons. They answered to Fire Lord Zuko, not her. The soldier who had spoken first, encouraged by his comrades, replied with more confidence. “Prisoner, I won’t ask you again. Stop what you’re doing, come back with us to your room and I promise you won’t be hurt.” He reached out to grab her shoulder with his free hand.

Azula heard Ozai’s laughter in her ears. Shut up, father. I’m never going back.

Why It's Good: Well written, character are IC, and it gets very intense in the end.

Status: finished

Personal Comment Usually I have some issues when an OC plays an important role, but Nazumi is well written and believable, and it all fit's together well.

Yay, Kyatto ( glomp ) suggested to use a template and even gave it to me.

It's on the User info page ( http://community.livejournal.com/atla_fanfics/profile )

Please use it (or create a even better one if you can) and please use tags like "Maiko Mai Aang Sokka" when only these appear in the fic... Please leave out only very short visits of other main characters ...)

Hopefully if everyone does their part, we can find alot of under rated stories that can finally be seen.

-goes searching FF.Net-

This is not, as the name might suggest, a community to post Avatar fanfiction (there are already enough) but to comment and review quality fanfiction finds from every site be it ff.net, dA, LJ, ASN or elsewhere.

They should have all characters IC and be of good quality. This is my sorry approach to help the fandom find among the masses of mediocre fanfiction *cough*including some of my own stuff*cough* the few pearls and diamonds that are hidden behind all the other ones.

A review or comment should not spoil to much. If it is about adult related fiction details please put that behind a link.

So the easy part is done, now begins the hard part, remember the few brilliant fics I found and start commenting on these here ... I hope others join as well to help me with that...
