This is a nigh perfect blend of two great shows: Avatar (the Last Airbender)and Stargate: SG-1. Right from the start, you get plunged straight into the action as our heroes meet up and kick some ass. You will be pleasantly surprised by the in-depth world building and the subtle exposition by characters that are portrayed impeccably in a realistic manner. The mash-up of science and spirits clash vividly as the author uses previous knowledge and well-researched ideas to create a universe that immerses you in the story and kindles the imagination.
Genres? It's science with a dash of fantasy; action and adventure with just the right balance of humor and drama; a shot of mystery on the rocks of suspense; the bond of friendship and the meaning of family. I think there's even the barest hint of angst in there (though who am I to be deciding that?).
Perhaps most importantly of all, this story has NO PAIRINGS. That may dissuade you, but for me, after seeing dozens of fics ruined by either overindulgent or unbelievable romance, I found this refreshing.
I must warn the one-shot reader that the author (Kryal) has already finished the story, and places it at the 200-thousand word range. If this is you, try reading "Rampage" by Avocadolove. It is shorter, just as well-written, and was was the instigator of multiple Avatar-Stargate fanfics (this one included).
For the avid reader, however, this is pure gold. Long chapters (15k+ each) along with immaculate grammar and spelling (even a Nazi such as myself found less than 3 per chapter) give the swiftest of readers time to enjoy with as few distractions as possible.
