  • Synopsis: An excellent writer who has written an entire Book Five, is in the process of writing an AU of Books Three and Four where Korra was abducted by the Red Lotus, and has given very deep exploration of Korra and Asami's relationship. She often employs heavy foreshadowing and often gets inside the characters' heads. Her most used character is Asami. Highly recommended for Korrasami and franchise lovers in general.

I Get By by cupid-painted-blind
  • Recommended by Komodo Classic
  • Synopsis: "Killing it with close inspection, killing it can only make it worse. It sort of makes it breed. —-It's Amon's fault that he lost his bending, but it's Tahno's fault that it crippled him to lose it. It isn't until the chance comes up to get it back that he starts to think he shouldn't need it so much."
  • Status: One-shot.
  • Comments: A look at Tahno's life after he loses his bending. This fic really is incredible—it takes a quite frankly Jerkass character and makes him sympathetic and interesting.

In Which Korra Grows Up by Immac

  • Status: Ongoing

Instincts of a Fearful Body by Emirael and skyedancer_rae
  • Recommended by: 425599167
  • Synopsis: Successfully kidnapped as a child, Korra grew up as a member of the Red Lotus. Finally, she’s come to Republic City to observe Amon’s Equalist Revolution. Zaheer’s case study goes further off-track, however, the longer they stay. After Hiroshi’s death at the hands of a bender, Yasuko Sato raised Asami in the midst of the burgeoning Equalist movement.
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Comments: I'm normally not a fan of either the Equalist!Asami or RedLotus!Korra AUs, but this one has the interesting distinction that Korra is very similar to the canon version, rather than becoming completely ruthless, despite being raised by the Red Lotus. The Red Lotus members themselves are also given a lot more depth, now that they aren't strictly villains. There are also some cleverly subtle consequences to Korra's kidnapping, like Amon's "accelerating plans" not happening, so this actually takes place later than Book 1 did.

  • Status: Complete
    • Seconded by Lady Erin NY: This fic not only gives character development to Kuvira but also Su and Baatar jr. Iviscrit does a fantastic job getting to the heart of Kuvira's actions and motives while not clearing her of her wrongdoings. If you want to see Kuvira be punished for her crimes but still think she can be redeemed, this is a story for you. Not to mention Su gets called out a couple of times but is still a good person and both Baatars gets thier own personality.

  • Synopsis: A story about botany in which absolutely nothing grows. In which Katara refuses to compromise her ideals, Sokka admits that mistakes were made, and four members of the Red Lotus are given a future that is not entirely bereft of hope.
  • Status: A Seed is Planted, One Day in Early Spring is a one-shot; Twelve Years Until the Harvest is ongoing.
  • Comments: This What If? series—alternately just called Hybridization—plays heavily on the Anti-Villain status of the Red Lotus and some Fridge Horror concerning their individual cells. In short: they're effectively sentenced to community service, and the author makes it work.

Korra Doesn't Like Fanfiction by I'mNotGoodAtThis

Current chapter: Korra meets someone new and falls for him completely. Will Mako reveal his true feelings to Korra? How will Korra react? Read to find out! Don't read the character pairing, that's cheating.
  • Status: Dormant (Last Updated November 2014)
  • Comments: While VERY, VERY crude and definitely earning its Mature rating given how it covers various types of sex fics, the series itself is a pretty hilarious deconstruction/criticism of the various cliches that seem to be common in LOK fanfiction circles. Korra's dealing with the infamous "High School Alternate Universe" is incredibly funny.

So, they drag them into the Spirit World and tell them that they must make peace with each other (read: have sex) or they will be killed. This fic is incredibly hilarious, mainly because of the awkwardness. The author did a good job keeping Amon and Korra in-character, considering this is a fuck-or-die crackfic. This was written before the Book 1 finale so some of the things about Amon are AU. Warning for explicit sexual content.

  • Status: Ongoing
  • Comments: A VERY good fic which explores what happens if the horrors of the 40K universe met the Korra era Avatar World. Equal moments depressing as characters become more and more jaded over the course of the fic, and awesome in the way that only 40K can be. English is not the authors first language, so it sometimes reads a little oddly, but it doesn't detract from the fic.

The Cycle Continues
  • Recommended by: Dracis
  • Music: Avatar: The Last Airbender Soundtrack, "Peace"
  • Avatar Aang has passed away. His family, friends, and the city he helped create mourn him with all their hearts, but the cycle of the Avatar will continue. The music from the A:TLA soundtrack fits in beautifully. The feels will hit you hard.

Seven Devils by thatmonkeynj
  • Recommended by: rockgecko2180
  • Music: Florence and the Machine, "Seven Devils"
  • Synopsis: A hard-hitting video about Korra's progress as the Avatar and the conflict growing between Korra and Amon's Equalist forces. Amazingly well-assembled and perfectly sync'd, this haunting piece should send chills up your spine.

Legend of Korra AMV- Radioactive by codesauce123
  • Recommended by: qazwsx
  • Music: Imagine Dragons, "Radioactive"
  • This piece is intense, well paced, and action-y. It's a war story that makes you want to get up and revolt.

The Legend of Korra - Game Of Thrones by Artacus
  • Recommended by: Crimson Shogun
  • Music: Ramin Djawdi, "Game of Thrones Opening Theme"
  • An amazingly crafted fan opening, put together from website and dvd clips to create a sweeping look at the locations in and around Republic City, all while set to the Game Of Thrones theme.

Legend of Korra |Sink or Swim| by januarydreamerx
  • Recommended by: Komodo Classic
  • Music: A tweaked version of Sink or Swim by Tyrone Wells.
  • A montage of the awesome, the heartbreaking, the heartwarming, the most emotional and the downright coolest moments in the show, all set to music that builds to a crescendo and really seems to capture the emotions. The song is tweaked to a higher pitch than the original, which makes the beginning sound a little bit dissonantly cheerful, but the overall video is very impressive.

Avatars Wan to Korra - Why Not Me by BentPaperClip
  • Recommended by: lmd84
  • Music - 'Why Not Me' By Within Temptation, though it's more a short monologue than music.
  • The creator said the track reminded them of Raava's voice, and the theme of evil is certainly appropriate. A short, powerful look at the Avatar Cycle and the triumphs and tragedies from Raava's perspective. Made before the finale aired. Also worth watching by the same creator is Korra and the Equalists - O Death which is a chilling amv covering episodes 3 and 4 of the first Book.

The Avatar Rises by Tiger
  • Recommended by: Crimson Shogun
  • Music - 'Watchful Guardian' and other Hans Zimmer themes from "The Dark Knight".

The Last Goodbye by KJM Producciones
