Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Avatar, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Authors, and Websites

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Broken People by Tajjas

  • Recommended by Catchandelier 34, GAK Dragon
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Shows the time from when the battle ends, to... well it isn't finished yet, so who knows? Tsu'tey is alive in this one, and the story is from his pov. Focus is on the aftermath of war, and the not-quite-friends that are Tsu'tey and Jake. There is funny, and angsty, and some drama too. Hasn't Updated in a while, but... The hopeless hope.

Into the Wild by Paladin 12345678

  • Recommended by Zerban
  • Status: Complete

  • Synopsis: RDA soldier Jade West finds herself stranded alone in Pandora and has to find her way back. She meets an unnaturally short Na'Vi who can speak English, who offers to guide her home. Along the way Jade pokes fun at most of the things on Pandora and the Na'Vi's broken logic, putting a whole Rooting for the Empire spin on it. But then as the series goes on she and the Na'Vi find out a lot more about each other. Then... the ending...

Semper Victoria and its sequel Semper Furor by Katkiller-V

  • Recommended by khaos974
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: [Semper Victoria] It's been fifteen years since Sully and the Na'vi exiled the RDA, but now humanity is returning to Pandora, and they are... displeased with being forced away from their most precious resource. Primarily a human-centric story, focusing on why the humans are there on Pandora and showing the conflict from a human angle.
  • Synopsis : [Semper Furor] Several years after the events of Semper Victoria, humanity has rebuilt its strength upon Pandora, while the Na'vi still slowly heal. But not everything is peaceful, and whispers of doom and conflict fill the air as many Na'vi agitate to resume the war against the sky people, and humanity begins to consider if a total war is not the answer after all. Focuses more open the relationships between both the humans and the na'vi than Victoria, and how both view each other and the world around them.

Sugar, We're Going Down Swinging by 100 Silver Wings

  • Recommended by Mr Thumbsup
  • Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
  • Synopsis: What I think should have happened to Trudy. Not straying too far from the movie i.e she still dies *cries* Oneshot. Has nothing to do with the Fall Out Boy song, I'm just borrowing some lyrics. Rated for language

The Endeavors of Art by Alex Checnkov

  • Recommended by Kyrean

Worship the Ashes by AKA_Green

  • Recommended by @Rayne
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Pairings: Neytiri/Jake Sully/Tsu'tey
  • Synopsis: Living well is the best revenge, so they say. In Jake's quiet fury at the dismissive, heartless way everyone spoke of his brother's death and the complete lack of empathy he found at every turn and corner, he decides to find a way to live the best life he can possibly conceive, with the opportunity Tommy left behind for him: a fresh start on a new world... just not exactly the way the RDA vultures meant.(In which Jake Sully pulls the ultimate con on every person who failed to treat his brother's memory with respect, and every person who failed to be kind to their fellow man.)
