|Book I: The Pawns|
|..:|Prologue|:..|

The Avatar is Gone- Forever?
read the headlines one hundred years ago, after the passing of Avatar Kady. Republic City claimed to have seen her in the Avatar state when she passed on, and thus, the Avatar cycle came to a halt, they said... Now it has been two thousand years since Avatar Korra, a famous and much loved Avatar, had passed on. Modern day Republic City believes she would be amazed and then disgusted if she were here now. Amazed at the sleek, Hovermobiles levitating an entire foot off the ground; amazed at the tall steel buildings whose sides project commercials from flashing HD color television screens; amazed at the garments people are wearing, glitzy and glamorous with high tech features, like cellular phones implanted in thin, fashionable gloves.
Disgusted at the way poor people are made into slaves if four years old or older; disgusted at how the Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and Water Tribes are dominated by a single power when they are supposed to be separate; disgusted at how the leader of this dominating power, Valor Li-Nova, has been crowned 'Honorary Avatar', because people have lost hope in the real and apparently nonexistent Avatar; disgusted that all she did to stop the Equalists went somewhat in vain, for now, all airbenders are extinct. An entire race gone, along with her friends Tenzin and his children.
Li-Nova's regime is in full control of the other nations. Laws are in effect that remove people from their homes if it is convenient to place a shopping center or corporate building. Corporations dominate small, family owned businesses. People are losing their jobs everyday, and becoming slaves.
And no one except the Avatar can stop it.
But the Avatar is dead.

Welcome to The Chessboard Battlefield Trilogy, a double between the ever so incredible KawaiiGrrl and myself. This story takes place in the cyberpunk evolution of the LOK world we know and love, two thousand years after Korra passed away.
I hope you enjoy this legendary trilogy, and as I say because I'm The Way,

Keepon Writing!

Ally,

So we really have to keep our guard up, huh...

All,

I will say it again: save your stories, any significant posts like from story-planning threads, any OCs you submitted to roleplays.

Every time I come here, I think, "How will the interface look today? Will the site have been updated? Or will it all be the same?"

I was lurking around on the Nick HQ Board, and found out that the site will update in the middle/end(ish) of July. It was a "secret", but it must not be anything the moderators are prohibited from disclosing. Perhaps just information they won't widely announce...

MistySun,

Long time no write~ We're doing great on this quiet little board. They'll update the site soon, which is why we're not posting yet.

Madtay,

Yeah, pretty much. They should really try to publicize it a little more...

Way,

So they're resetting the entire website and all of our stories will be deleted???? I'm sooooo glad I have both of my fanfictions saved on my computer. On the bright side, I'll get the chance to edit some of the not-so-great parts in the beginning of White Blank Page. . .

I'm really glad you said that, or I would've logged on one day and started freaking out when everything was gone.

LD,

Yeah, there are some threads posted on some of the boards by NICKFrog ('cause everyone likes him) that talk about the new Nick.com. Also, you are completely free to like whoever you want! ^^ Personally, I hated Peeta x Katniss in the Hunger Games. But unlike the Hunger Games, we don't know which guy will get the girl...

Kawaii,

Thanks for the explaining! And like I told LunaDiana, you can find the proofs on some threads, like those posted on Stories or Blab, about the new Nick.

Ally,

Thaaat's all right! XD Things that don't make sense are cool!

Gotta bisect these angles for Monday... At least this geometry book is more fun than the last math book I had!

Kawaii,

Perhaps, because there is a four included in Geld's time, bad luck may be coming his way, despite his sudden prosperity regarding his victorious romance with Harmonie. Or maybe not. This really is a head-scratcher. But I do suppose it is all up to you and Way.

If you think about it, it's kind of odd how character's fates are in the author's hands. Because, to me anyway, characters are something I created, but they grow into something more than that, so isn't it weird how their destiny lies at our finger tips?

Great, now I'm thinking about more things that don't make sense.

@ The Way

WAIT A SECOND. NICK IS RELOADING EVERYTHING? HUWAT.

*jumps off airplane*

*faceplants into ground*

Oops. Anyway, where did you hear that? o_o;; I wanna see for meself, omg.

And here is the meaning of the clocks: number 9 is a very lucky number in Asian cultures. Geld woke up at 9:49 PM, so since he has two 9s, he's pretty lucky/happy I guess. The number 4, however, is super unlucky. To be frank, I forgot completely why I put the 4 in Geld's time since the chapter was a while ago, so just roll with it that he's super happy.

Cleon, on the the other hand, wakes up at 4:44 AM, meaning that he has bad luck and is upset. I think. If that even made sense. Yeah.

@Way

First off, no i don't. I don't really like Geld. Cleon seems like the Bolin of this story.. Harmonie seems to ignore Cleon mostly...

And two... They're what?!?! Resetting everything!

Ally,

Indeed... I'm glad you're up for reading it again, though! And of course, we can fix any mistakes we've made and overlooked before we post again. To your first post, YES THE FEELS ARE EVERYWHERE!

LD,

XD Harmonie likes Geld so much! Shouldn't you be rooting for the main character and her decisions? But I'm happy you like Cleon and want to support him as well. ^^

Way,

Woah, they're going to reset everything? Hmmm, reposting doesn't prove to be difficult, it just seems like it'd be a pain. Well, I'd like to read TCB (yes, I just made your fanfic an acronym) again. It's just so good. Can't wait, hehe.

Everyone,

In case you don't know, Nickelodeon updating the site to make it better (i.e. someone didn't know what to do with the extra cash), and everything's going to be reset. I have every chapter saved on my computer, and I'm sure Kawaii does too.

It's not known when this will launch, but undoubtly soon. So any minute, we will have to repost this, and you'll be forced to relive the whole story. ">_< But to keep you entertained, I might just post side stories or extra thingies if Kawaii (and the mods) agree. So how does that sound..?

Excellent chapter! I, too, was unable to figure out the meaning of the clocks. I am slightly disappointed in myself if this was something obvious.

And poor Cleon. His hurt is giving me feels. Very SAD feels.

Kawaii,

Great chapter! It tied everything up well. Too bad Seto had to have crutches. That's a bummer. ._. Not even I got the clocks thing... Sorry!! "><

|Book II: The Bishops |
|..:|Chapter LVIII: Night Thoughts|:..|

Pop! Colors of confetti glided onto their heads like sprinkles on sweet pastries. The Avatar smiled brightly, content to be in the company of her friends, her real friends.
With his chubby footsteps, Troy trotted into the room, his hands, protected with oven mitts, holding a silver tray of frosted cookies.
"It's party time," exclaimed Seto, holding up his crutches with triumph. A toxic arrow of regret and shame was felt through Harmonie's heart.
The adolescent girl glanced down. "Sorry about that accident thing, Seto."
"Hey, no prob," grinned the earthbender. "They're actually really good accessories. And it'll get healed in a week or two, anyway." He cutely smiled at Tamara, meticulously tying jade ribbons to one of his crutches.
And they rejoiced.
The entire F.A.L.S.E. sang and dance and ate and were simply happy to have all their members once again. Even when Harmonie's singing voice sounded like one thousand dying air bison, when Mac accidentally caused a wild fire to occur in the kitchen, or when Seto accidentally knocked over their new vase, the mood did not dampen.
Tonight, they were going to celebrate, even if the moon fell.

He laid on his bed, staring into the roof of his room, as if it held the contents of the universe. The adolescent boy glanced at the electronic clock ticking the time away as if waiting for another miracle.
9:49 PM.
It was bizarre and amazing. He could still feel the shock and bliss and satisfaction, even after it had occurred. Geld smiled as he gently touched his lips.
The same lips that touched Harmonie's.
Wow.
His mind was buzzing with all sorts of thoughts of this beautiful girl.
It felt so... strange. But in a good way.
He could never explain it correctly. When he attempted to replay the scene in his head, the effect that came in his mind was a completely different subspecies. It was like thinking about an amazing experience from a past celebration; you could never quite remember the exact thought or feeling or emotion you were feeling at that exact moment.

But he didn't care. It was wonderful no matter what.
With a content smile, he closed his eyes, drifting into a slumber filled to the brim with bliss.

He laid on his bead, staring into the roof of his room, as if it held the contents of his sorrow. The adolescent boy glanced at the electronic clock ticking the time away as if waiting for a tragedy.
4:44 AM.
It was a horrible feeling, really. Cleon frowned as he gently touched his lips.
The lips that did not, and never will, touch Harmonie's.
He could still feel the puzzling and painful blend of relief, envy and regret.
Relief for being able to know Harmonie was safe, being able to see her smile, being able to have her here.
Envy for that stupid kiss that she exchanged with that stupid earthbender.
Regret for not having that kiss first, for not making a move this entire time, for being idle.
He had so many unjust disadvantages against the fox-like earthbender, a major one being whether or not your body consisted of any metal limbs. No wonder Harmonie preferred the handsome human over this... humanesque robot.
With a forlorn frown, he closed his eyes, drifting into a slumber filled to the brim with longing.
