Shoot deadline is approaching I better post something

Hello :’D Just here to whet your appetites with some drafts for the first draft (WOW) of my Hobbit and Avatar The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra AU entry!

Bilbo is an airbender—daughter of a particularly famous airbending master known for her world-wide travels and adventurous streak. In contrast, the unassuming Bilbo is quite happy to stay put in her comfortable hillside village situated in the shadow of the great Western Air Temple, with naught but her books, her little garden, and the cantankerous companionship of a flying-lemur affectionately named Gollum. (For the weird hacking sounds he makes)

That all changed, when the Fire Nation attacked Gandalf appeared on her doorstep. And on his heels came a host of warriors led by a beautiful waterbender with eyes as blue as the sky—and one of the grouchiest temperaments that could even rival her Gollum. This ragtag group claims to be a band of merchants—highly unlikely since they’re bristling from head to toe with weapons like a hedgesquirrel—hailing from the great Kingdom of Erebor. Stranger still, these “merchants” have a particular interest in the airbending gift for astral projection and their innate connection the Spirit World.

And the ruse would have perhaps, lasted throughout their entire visit—if not for the armed assassins that storm Bilbo’s home, and the revelation that she was actually entertaining exiled royalty. And suddenly, Bilbo finds herself pulled into a world of political intrigue, spiritual comas, and the sort of unexpected bonds of friendship (and love) that form in times of crisis.

Wow cool features:

  • Since this is an ATLA/LoK AU, and the series is VERY well known for having awesome female characters, gender bending is encouraged and appreciated. Hence, why our main protags, Bilbo and Thorin, are specifically female in this AU :)
  • In that same vein, it doesn’t have to happen but I would love for this fic to be fem!bagginshield, if possible :’)
  • As for elemental nation match ups, I again would love to leave it open for the writer! Though, I did imagine Erebor as being similar to Republic City, with the kingdom and the surrounding city of Dale and the Lake Town being a mix of all nations. A big 1000+ for the elves being Water Tribe, though, if only for Thorin to be unfortunately related to them (And for their lack of help during this political turmoil sting all the more)

:’) As you can see, I’m doing my best to leave it very open-ended for whoever dares to claim this; though I wouldn’t mind talking anything out with my writer! I will hopefully have a more “poster”/”cover” looking draft soon, but for now enjoy these little tastes of what’s to come!

You can also refer back to the #hobbitreversebang: atla au tag on my art blog for more doodles and character previews and maybe some martial arts geekery haha

I’m one of the authors for this AU, and I am so. freaking. excitedddddddd. 

Aaaah so exciting :)

Writing/Sketching Exercise! (#2)

It’s that time again, ladies, gents, and other titles of your preference!

thejerseydeviledoodleblog and I are doing another writing/sketching exercise!

Since we’re going to be reblogging back and forth, anybody wants to blacklist the exchanges can use “writing sketching exercise” without the quotation marks. When it’s all finished, it’ll be posted on AO3, just like the first one.

And now! To the writing bits!

Thorin knows that his personal guard are getting looks during court. The dwarves returning home from Ered Luin and the Iron Hills haven’t been able to take their eyes off of them. Each time it happens, Thorin has made sure to remind them of their purpose in returning to the Lonely Mountain.

Deep down, Thorin can’t fault them for their curiosity. Dwalin stands to his right, fitting in so neatly to the throne room that Thorin can’t imagine him anywhere else.

Bifur, standing with tense rigidity to his left, is a complete mystery, even to him.

Thorin hears the outraged whispers amongst the dwarves who were begging for an audience with him not five minutes ago, and mentally shoves them aside. Bifur has never reacted without cause, whether alone on watch, or with the company.

Thorin still finds himself ready to murmur for Bifur to calm himself, but it dies on his lips when he sees what Bifur has focused on.

The elves of Mirkwood, led by Thranduil’s son, have arrived, and are moments away from causing what Dis would call a “diplomatic incident”.
