Summary: The monks can't have possibly determined Aang to be the Avatar simply from his toys, although they were a pretty big giveaway. The monks guess at, and know, Aang's true birthright through his every day life, and his bending revelations.
Here's a few fanfics that I find enjoyable to read. They all are nicely written and show a fair amount of detail.
NFWYA Epilogue 100 Author: Scarlet Cougar 100 epilogue shorts to Scarlet's amazing fanfic, Never Forget Who You Are. It is really good, and fills in a lot of gaps left by the show. It primarily takes place during book 3 after the downfall of Ba Sing Se. Mainly about Zuko, for the most part, and his inner turmoil. Very greatly written, lots of detail, and a must read!
Rating: PG to PG-13, there is an R version, but I think you have to PM Scarlet for it. Actual location of the R version is not disclosed because of possible little kiddies on here =P . . . For those of you who are mature, you will easily figure out where the R version is, not saying any more
What Next? Author: Anahar A fanfic mainly about Katara in a . . . supernatural state of mind and being, I won't elaborate any further, as I don't want to spoil the story. It is told mainly from Katara's point of view, judging from the first couple of chapters written. Overall nicely written, and even though it starts out depressing, Anahar tells us that the ending will be a happy one.
Rating: PG, as of now, I'm not sure if it would be PG-13 at times
Light in the Tunnel Author: Shonee A story about a Fire Nation child who is from a pro-war family, and must deal with the turmoil of secretly not supporting the war. The Fire Nation boy makes a new friend, and risks his reputation and well-being secretly visiting him. This story is told from the first-person point of view, and nicely written; one of the better fanfics written in first person.
Water Tribe Author: Tera253 An alternate universe to 'The Order of the Avatar Slayer', has some of the same characters in TOAS, tells of a story about the evil Avatar Zuroc, who took almost over the entire world, except for the Southern Water Tribe. Shows awesome Katara Altina II ownage in some parts, and Tera's ever famous drunkard character, Tenoko Dragmire. Katara's and Tenoko's forces fight a war against Avatar Zuroc to release the world from her clutches and restore the four nations as they are intended to be.
Rating: PG to PG-13 for mild violence and some blood and guts too.
The SOURCE of Redwhoopass~ a thousand Red Giant stars, cause everyone knows they're the fuel source for 48% of all Redwhoopass 20% comes from the drugs and voodoo 10% from Pentagrams destroyed by robot unicorns another 20% comes from Red's natural powers and the wookie side of the family and the last 2% is undeterminable, but we suspect it comes from being a chat mod Marshmallow peep souls increase Redwhoopass strength. They are an amplifier or catalyst [/Pleh]

Y-You're so kind, Winddance... I'll put your fanfic up here, too. Because it's that awesome.
Wind Song Author: Winddance22 When a teenager Airbender wakes up in the times of war and reveals who she truly is, she must embark on a journey to master the elements and find out what happened to her friends. Well-written, with interesting plot twists. An excellent read for all Air Nomad fans!
Rating: PG currently, I think, possible PG-13 later?
Author: Eladriewen Title: Four Seasons Link:http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2709154/1/Four_Seasons Summary: A more in depth look at what could have been a disastrous night for both Prince Zuko and General Iroh.

I love this fic!! Trombe(the author) is one of the best fanfic writers i have ever seen! Heres the summary: A prince struggles to change his destiny. An unforgiving waterbender tries to see past the betrayal. Fate has decreed them to be enemies from the start but the heart cares not for the laws of the universe. AU ZUTARA starting from the Boiling Rock. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3353749/1/C ... the_Maiden
This one's good too. It's by CultOfStrawberry. It only rated T, but it gets pretty mature. Here's the summary: Zutara AU, Hades x Persephone inspired In a land of gods and spirits, Katara is the daughter of the Sea, and Zuko is the powerful and reclusive God of the Fire Realms. Zuko has been pining for her for too long... so he finally takes action. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5632126/1/Vertigo
AWESOME fic!! It's by GunboatDebater. It's an excellent read! Here's the summary: Katara wakes up to endless darkness. So why does she feel like she's falling? The experience will transform her life, but not for the better. But perhaps he will.

Karu journal 1 There are many people who believe the air nomads are gone Long ago my people established a colony in the Earth Kingdom The Fire Nation over looked us in their ambush on our temples Now there are few of us and fewer still can air bend I am one of those few My mother was an air bender my father well my mother didn’t talk about him we lived in an earth kingdom village
i attended lesson taught by the oldest airbenders alive ,the sky bison I travel the world searchingfor another airbender I believe I am the last of my kind until a new avatar comes I must fight for my people I am heading to the northern water tribe in seach of the avatar
Kaytrine journal 1 There are rumors saying that the avatar has returned . Some say he’s an airbender, some a fire bender and so on. There are rumors the airbenders are extinct, but I don’t believe it. Im not sure i should believe anyone until I see for my self that it is true . The airbenders were attacked over 100 years ago its possible some managed to escape. The fire nation is trying to attack omashu, I plan to leave and go in search of this Avatar, hopefully I will meet others along the way. I leave in one week!

karu is an airbender that grew up in a colony established before the war by the air nomads in the earth kingdom Kaytrine is amember of a noble family in Ba Sing Se her parents didnt want her to earthbend because she is partially blind Naomi is from a small village in the northern water tribe she was not allowed to learn bending so her brother taught her zulani is the rebel princess from the fire nation she is the second cousin of crown prince zuko and princess azula surok cant bend but he is a weapons master he was born in the colony with karu and was like a brother to karu until karu turned 10 and surok moved away during which time surok befriends the other characters
It is an AU story that takes place just after the Cave of Two Lovers, follows canon for the most part for the first few chapters, then spirals almost completely into AU. Zuko discovers a lost firebending technique, sets off to save his people (firebenders who would rather get out of the war), and along the way runs into various predicaments that prove beyond the shadow of a doubt he is ten times or more unluckier (is that a word?) than Sokka. What happens when he becomes friends with a waterbender in Ba Sing Sei? What happens when he meets his mother's family?
Starts off during the last big Toph-related scene of the show, explores it in excruciatingly wonderful detail, then goes from there to tell a story about Toph needing to figure out her life post-war and get over her crush on Sokka (which, stubborn as Toph is herself, seems to stick around pretty intensely here).
What's really the draw of this story is the thick, rich description. The pacing and dialogue start out stiff but she's gotten better. It's good stuff, one of my very few favorites in the fanfic-verse (as I actually don't READ a whole lot of fiction, at least not on the internet) and is dealt with a lot of care and some thought-provoking metaphors and descriptors.
Hmmm...well, since traffic to AP has been heavier lately, I do believe it's time to pimp out my favorite fic of all time. Ever. In fact, it's one of my favorite stories. Of all time. Ever. OH...and it happens to be written by the awesome gentleman who posted right above me
It has its own thread here, so I'm just going to steal the summary from that:
"This story is an AU, modern-day, college setting that stars Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, and Smellerbee. Its plot weaves elements and references from the main series (and even a little Legend of Korra later) but the actual plot itself is generally an original plot, based in large part on my own personal experience in college."
I really can't say enough good things about it. Honestly and truly this is not a "fanfic" it's just an amazing work of fiction. And not only that, if you check it out on DA there is an AMAZING - and ever expanding - gallery of artwork to go with it.
