Kuvira Zine
Volume II: Not Alone

Kuvira Zine Volume II will be a collection of fanworks centered around the character Kuvira. The SFW zine that will be available as a Digital PDF and as an A5 perfect-bound book with two main sections: Kuvira In Power and Kuvira At Home.

SECTIONS

Kuvira in Power may include Kuvira depicted as a leader in any capacity that isn’t a dictator such as:

  • Earth Queen

  • Empress

  • Bending instructor

  • Military commander

  • Business owner

  • Benevolent mob boss [Head Mod Zhi just finished Golden Wind, okay? XD]

  • Youth Outreach Coordinator

  • Special Forces Leader, etc.

Kuvira at Home, we will explore alternate universe and post-canon situations such as:

  • Kuvira if she were adopted by Lin

  • Kuvira raised by the Red Lotus

  • Kuvira reconciling with Suyin and the Metal Clan

  • Kuvira relaxing/hanging out with friends

  • Kuvira chilling on her own

  • Kuvira going on dates with Baatar, Korra, Iroh II, Mako, or whoever

  • Kuvira with children

Shipping will be allowed in the SFW zine but interactions must be mild. Snuggling is OK, but passionate groping NOT OK.

There will be a digital NSFW side-zine that may include Kuvira alone as well as Kuvira in a relationship with others. Prohibited content includes underage, incest, age-gap, non-con, dub-con, and excessive gore.
