These are the drabbles I wrote for prompts 76-100.  Aside from letting you know why I always had a drabble written for a prompt the same weekend it began, I thought they might be of interest.

Anyone else who wrote drabbles for unreleased prompts is free to post them to the community.

I hereby announce the avatar_500 Out with a Bang Blowout round! All good things must come to an end, and sadly, it is our turn to say goodbye. And goodbyes are the perfect time to look back on how fare we have come, so the prompt for our final round is the very first prompt this community ever hosted, Element.

There are a few differences between this round and a normal round. First, this round is a full three months long. You have all summer to write your very last fic for this community. Second, there will be no voting. There ate no winners and no losers, just a low pressure send off for a wonderful community.

Although I am sad to see this community go, I feel we should be proud. For three years and seventy-five rounds, we have given the Avatar: the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra fandom amazing stories, and a place for all of us to stretch our skills. Congratulations, everyone. Three years is nothing to sneeze at.

word limits are 100 (min) to 500 (max)

Since we're not going to be holding any more rounds, there's no reason that I shouldn't show off these banners all at once.

No New Prompt. Mod Discussion

Hello everyone.  This community is dying, if not dead.  I would really like to get out the paddles and shock it back to life, but I can't do that without you.  Which means, I need to ask if you want me to.  Does this community still provide something valuable to you?  Is there any way we as a community can make the community more valuable?  Or is it time to retire the community?  Please, please, please tell me your thoughts.

Hey guys!  We're a bit over a day and a half away from the deadline for Round 73 - Revolt, and we need at least one more fic if we want to have voting.  If you have a fic you're noodling around with, please get it finished so you can post.  I really really want to get back to making banners.
