Character Designs


    1. (continuation) is a character I like. Please don’t make her a villain… either good, or a neutral

  1. why do the sandbender women wear hijab? I don’t understand why they would to that when the avatar world has been canonically portrayed as pretty egalitarian (also lacking abrahamic influences) with very few sexist exceptions like the northern water tribe and sokka’s weird behaviour but the concept of sexism existing at all was pretty much abandoned when korra came along, so it’s weird that a fanfiction would take a step back and reintroduce sexist concepts

    1. Wearing a veil on one’s head predated the existence of Abrahamic religions. The REQUIREMENT that women must wear a veil over their head is what’s sexist, not the veil itself. Before head veils were given religious significance they were a sign of status restricted for the use of upper class women, which is still kind of sexist, but not in the same way that it is once Islam came along. As for why sandbender women wear them, I imagine that hijabs, if they’re even called hijabs, don’t carry the same history and meaning that they do in our world. They’re likely a part of feminine fashion that serves the practical purpose of protecting their skin from the Sun.

    2. It’s not a hijab if it doesn’t cover ALL your hair. It’s simply a headscarf, and I think that doesn’t have anything to do with Abrahamic religions.

    3. If I remember correctly, BOTH the sandbender men and women both wore head coverings in The Last Airbender.
      They wear them because they are surrounded by sand, which is easily blown in the breeze/wind, and getting hit by that sand is painful and annoying, and wearing something like this protect you from it.
      It also helps protect you from the sun, preventing sunburn and keeping you cool.
      Head coverings are not a religious thing. They also serve practical use, and can also be used for fashion or to show one’s position/status.
      I think it’s weird you are trying to attach sexist and religious concepts to a fantasy fanfiction that contains neither of them lmao

    4. I think it’s just idea for a sun protecting on a desert. Just like sandbenders bandages.

    5. They wear the hijab primarily because the environment where the live in is windy and that would tussle their hair about

      1. As far as I understand – people in the Avatar world think Luan is the Avatar, but it’s actually Genji, that’s why it’s called The Legend of Genji instead of The Legend of Luan

  2. Idk if this is canon in The Legend of Genji, but Riho looks like Varrick and Zhu Li’s daughter and Jae looks like a descendant of Iroh, probably his son.

  3. I can see you guys made A LOT of research for this comic. I just read ummm… basically everything in your website and I can’t believe that I actually gonna be able to read something like that! It’s amazing guys, thank for that. I bet that DiMartino and Konietzko gonna be super proud (and jealous) of your work.

  4. wwwwwwwow. The concept art on the characters and background blew me away. Y’all are pouring your heart and soul into this story. Bless you guys and I can’t wait to read!!!
