longest chapter yet and also the most intense. you have very good writing skills. very conflicted about my feeling towards azula, do I hate her? do i sympathise?
I'll just go read the next one now.

Nice fic gave me some ideas. Thats what a good story should do when a fello author reads one.

Gosh, I'm so disappointed that I've finished reading this story because it's simply AMAZING! Naturally, I pick the second ending. I'm a sucker for happy endings and the first one made me cringe. Haha. I'm glad I stumbled upon this because this is definitely one of my favorite stories of all time now. :D Sokkla will forever be an OTP of mine!
So thank you for the amazing read!

This is so far the best fic I have read here. The creativity you unleashed here is unparalleled! I like how you made Azula give herself up. Everything here is perfect, except for the Kataang part (im not criticizing you i really think they don't match).

Well, obviously I'm choosing Ending Option #2. ._.
LOVED THIS STORY!

The reverse of Stockholm Syndrome is actually called Lima Syndrome, after a 1996 incident where some hostages were held at the Japanese embassy in Lima, Peru. FYI.
Great, love reading this,

There are no words to express how much I love this story. At some points I worried if Sokka and Azula would get together, if Katara would ruin it for them, what actually was going on with Ozai, if Azula would break down (she was jumping all over the crazy line and so on.
This story is amazing. For some reason (including the ones you outlined in the story) Sokka and Azula fit so well together, and in my opinion, much better than Katara and Zuko (if we are doing fire and water pairings).
Naturally I pick the second epilogue as it is a wee bit more optimistic about the fact there could be a relationship between the nations. It would probably be politically beneficial for both sides- it shows the Fire Nation has grown out of it's prejudices and that the Water Tribes have faith in Azula to bring about peace. It may not be traditional but screw tradition!
Minor complaint- Ending seemed a tad too rushed but maybe that's because I was so tense reading it wondering what could possible go wrong for everyone next. But if my only complaint was that it ended I think you should be very happy.
Sorry for the long review but this story was too good not to tell you my thoughts.

Noooooo I just wasted two days of my live on t-. HA got you, just kidding. That was awsome man, I wish Azula was here, to beat the memory out of me, so I could read it again, and again and again...
| BoogieBoy 10/26/11 . chapter 18
I'm going to admit - the first ending was out of place. It seemed like the story ended with "love despite trials" and the first ending just dropped a character out of the sky.
Otherwise, it was a delight to read.

For one thing, I can't imagine a single person (unless they're just mean) giving this story a negative review. I absolutely adore your style of writing, and I was moved by the story. I can't say that I didn't see the plot twist coming, but that's only because I spend a lot of time reading mystery novels. Your characterizations were spot-on, and I was especially impressed by Azula's quite in-character metamorphosis. Great work on that. Moreover, I absolutely despise Kataang, but you made it bearable and almost-dare I say it-enjoyable! That's a feat in and of itself, so congratulations. Also, having read your entire work in one sitting, I was able to watch your writing evolve, and that was quite exciting. I will admit that the last few chapters had great narration-better than the rest of the chapters. Even so, all of your chapters were well-written, and the grammatical "errors," although I wouldn't call them errors-perhaps just differences in writing-were not enough to take away from the overall moving effect of the story. I felt that your plot was well-planned-out, and there were very few (if any) places where it felt rushed or poorly executed. As for the epilogues, I personally liked the last one. In fact, I would even recommend making a continuation or even a complete sequel about what happens after the story arc. The epilogue has THAT much promise. The first one, however-though equally good-just made me feel sad. That could be because Sokkla is my OTP, though. Anyway, after that long, rambling review, I just have one thing left to say: great job!
