Summary: The last word had been choked out, choked down, swallowed and spit back out. He had never let himself think it, speak it, accept it, nothing. He surely hadn’t. Saying it out loud just validated his own failures. He had been foolish and he had never made the mistake of letting his fire out of control ever again. He had made sure of that.

A/N: Happy 9-month anniversary of me not writing any fics! This has some good parts but I think I need to restring it together. Oh, well! It’s something.
on a scale of one to america how free are you tonight
I don’t see it on her Twitter. She may’ve said it and deleted it or I don’t know man.
The way I see it is that I’m not getting excited over anything until Bryke or Nick releases something officially.
Sorry for being a party pooper. It’s just that mid-April is two weeks away, and I don’t think they’d release it two weeks from now without even an inkling of promotional material, you catch my drift?
They announced the release date for S1 almost exactly a month before it premiered (Release Date was April 14th; they announced it March 15th). So I’m guessing that we’ll get about that kind of window between release date and the release date of the release date.
Basically I’m just being an ass and saying that I’m guessing we have more than two weeks to go.
And I’d be more than happy to be wrong.
So as it turns out the original speculation is true. Ikem is Zuko’s father not Ozai and that means that Iroh is not even Zuko’s uncle and Azula has every right to the throne over Zuko.
“Continuing on Ursa, the big reveal that is sure to be the big talking point among fans. Zuko’s biological father is actually Ikem, not Ozai.”
From this article.
What do you fans think? Does this change how you will perceive Zuko and the dynamic of the upcoming series of Korra?
ew wtf this is terrible no
i thought this was avatar, not a cliche soap opera special
part of what made zuko’s story so strong was that it showed that you dont have to like or follow your family if what theyre doing is wrong, and the contrast between azula and zukos characterization showed that good people can come from bad places
without zuko being related to ozai, it could be said that azula is evil because of her genetics, not her upbringing or that zuko was good from the start because he wasnt related to ozai.
like this was so strong because it showed that you dont have to be like your parents and just because your parents are bad people doesnt mean you have to be and ugh
this isnt supposed to be a cinderella story, this isnt about “evil stepparents” and ugh this is boring and gross
if this is true (in this comic whatever), this is going to be one of the first, if not THE first, case of “I’m totally ignoring this canon thing”
because let’s be honest
this is really demeaning to all of the hard work that went into zuko’s character
whether or not he’s your favorite, his character arc and development, along with azula’s, was fantastic, and absolutely just ugh so good
a big part of the reason why was because of the whole “good people can come from the worst families” thing
so now you’re going to send zuko on a *magical quest* to find out that *daddy is a sweetheart* and that *oh no zuko only bad people have bad parents* and *bad people breed bad people shh* *azula was only bad because her family was*
that’s such a bad message, plus contradictory to the show and
if this is actually true (like bryke approves it), i’m most likely going to totally ignore it
…I just thought Zuko would’ve had really hard time dealing with Aang’s death. I mean, in a way he was kind of the centre of his life since Zuko was 13, and then he became - most probably - his best friend. So… yeah. I’ll just leave this here.
Excuse me while my emotions explode.
IT’S OKAY, THAT’S JUST MY SOUL LEAKING OUT THROUGH MY EYE BALLS
I am overcome with such an irrepressible anger, and it seems as if it engulfs all else. What else is there to say to him? He was selfish enough to leave me, to leave us, to leave everything, and for what? For what. He’s gone and I’m here and I can’t stand it. I never would’ve thought I’d miss him this much. But he’s not there to write to when I have no idea what to do. He’s not there to do his stupid marble trick, to laugh at my severity, to see if his beard could match mine. He’s not here, and it hurts me every day. His ashes are scattered on the wind, yet I’m just as alive as he is. It hurts and I’m angry and I don’t know what he wants me to do. To look for the new Avatar? To grieve? I’ve done plenty of both so far, and I will continue to. When everything was crumbling, I didn’t think of Mai or anybody else I love. I thought of Aang and how he used to listen to me when I was proud or sad or broken, and I hated my weakness for needing his strength.They say life’s a circle, and perhaps they’re right. I began my life searching for him, and I will end it the same way.

A/N: Based off of my personal headcanon. You’ll see it. Plus I just love the idea that Pemzin started all fun and flirty and gradually grew into trust and lurve. Let me know what you think :) Warning: Gets fluffy.
"He is getting older. He can feel it in his bones. He can feel it when he airbends, when he stretches in the morning, when he feels as if the entire weight of the world could crush his shoulders at any moment. He feels it when he wakes up and realizes there is so much to be done and he’s just one man. He’s just one man. He can’t continue a dead race, he can’t even muster the energy to get up some mornings. He looks at the ceiling and can hear life continuing around him, and for the first time in his life, he’s content to let it continue without him.”
The showdown that was always meant to be…
Still one of my favorite scenes of all time on television - so much tension, emotion, build-up. And even though it was a fight, it was quiet and serene and respected. How often is a fight so respected? Yes, things have to come to a head. Yes, you have to take responsibility for mistakes that weren’t yours. But it isn’t a big fiery conclusion with fireworks. It isn’t going to be total emotional gratification. It’s not warm and fuzzy. Sometimes an ending is what is needed but not really what is wanted. Endings are bittersweet, and I think this scene had so much of that all wrapped up. The music, the silence, the lighting, the lack of. How could you not fall in love with both of these characters? And at the end? When she breaks down and he looks on? Oh, yes. That’s where the magic is. You’re supposed to be disturbed by the fact that she was barely held together. You feel pity, yes. But regret too. Wishing you could’ve changed something. Made her who she could’ve been. Wishing you could’ve made someone love her along the way. And you just feel regret and deep sorrow. And even though you know Zuko did the right thing, you didn’t want it to have had to’ve gotten to that point. You wanted her to pull it together; you wanted that desperately. And this is such a quiet culmination without obvious drama, but it hit me in a way little else did. So beautiful and tragic and I can’t describe it.
