Well, ladies and gentlemen, that's it. It's all over. Officially the longest piece of writing I have ever finished - 95 pages in Word (using Calibri 11pt - it would be longer if I used a different font
), 37,773 words (wow, how palindromic).
There may be additions to this one day. There's a couple of scenes I had to cut out simply because they didn't fit into any of the chapters nicely. There's a conversation between Lin and Toph that has happened in my head and in the story, but there was no where to put it. Also, Zhan's back story is really tragic and depressing, I may delve into it one day.
A huge thank you to everyone that had read, commented, and/or faved this. It means more than you could ever know.
Special thank yous to
for betaing the chapters, and to
for keeping me on-track when I would put this aside for a while.
And to everyone that hasn't figured it out yet, everything I've written for the Tokka weeks fits into continuity with "Heart of the Warrior." Also, the Pic & Fic entry "Heat" fits as well. If you reread all of them, I promise you'll find new little things I sprinkled in them to link to this.
Will I ever write a fanfic this long again? Probably not. I won't say definitely though, because stranger things have happened.
So, for the last time, thank you all, and if you enjoyed any of this, leave a nice comment below.
(Shame on everyone who thought Toph and Sokka would end up apart. I'm one of the mods of the TFU! Did you really think I wouldn't end this with one huge Tokka payoff?
