Just For Fun: Avatar and the Airbending Fellowship of Vampire Slayers
"Let the Farce be with you, Lurker." — ERU
"Apophenia - noun. The tendency to see connections where none exist. Did you come here just to make fun of my work?" — The QuestionDebuting in early March '07, this series was introduced on the Trope Vision Network (TVn) to tap into the growing demographic of fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer who are pretty sure they can work up an example — somehow, anyhow — of a given trope from their show.note The show developed an interesting multi-verse through the novel use of a framing device, in which the intrepid heroes (The "Vamp Benders", among fans) would pass through a Story Gate at the beginning of each episode, landing them in surroundings and situations familiar to television viewers the world over. Classic episodes ("A Three Hour Tour" and "My So-Called Felicity") aired, giving rise to a fan theory that the Story Gate is in reality a Holodeck of some sort. Producers are, of course, keeping mum on the controversy, but promising that all will eventually be revealed. Though the immensely popular tie-in comics and novels seem to be leaning in different directions for the plot line, the series seems to be ignoring both and going along its own line.
