I completely agree that this conversation had to happen. it was annoying that the creators gave Katara a line like that and didn't follow up... but you did a great job filling in the gaps here! and that back story you gave... wow... depressing much? poor sokka! its awful and terrible and really sad, but it also fits perfectly. creative, awesome, great job!

A bit of a tear-jerker, but it was lovely. I can't remember the last time I read a fic that wasn't Zutara-centric. This was indeed a fic that needed to be done. I, myself, wondered what would have went on between Sokka and Katara after she came back from her journey with Zuko. What she said was very hurtful.:( Thanks for giving us a possible insight on what could've possibly happened. Nice job with this! ;_;

Very well written one-shot. Almost a tear jerker. I was kinda pissed that Mike and Brian didn't address what Katara said to Sokka in that episode.

This beautiful, heartfelt story has left me speechless...and a bit tearful as well.
Thank you so much for writing this.

Oh dear lord!
My throat clenched, eyes itched and my heart skipped several beats at this. It was so hard not to break out sobbing halfway through. (It didn't help that the song started playing in the radio at the middle of reading this.)
I'm so happy someone addressed this! I was thinking of doing so, but I now know whatever I wrote could never have been as deeply moving as this piece.
So beautifully written, the characterization is very believable... and the whole mood still makes me melt!
Awesome AWESOME job!

I am so glad you wrote this. I was so irked that Katara would say this, and then they never went back to it! It deserved some closure. I love that you wrote this, and you wrote it very very well. Awesome story!

That's so amazing. Really deep. Ever since I saw "Southern Raiders," I've kind of been thinking along these same lines, but I guess you beat me to the punch. This was an extremely sobering tale that really captures the essence of all characters involved. I was rather upset they didn't address Sokka's loss of his mom more thoroughly in 316, but I think you did a particularly good job handling it. Nice work.

It has always annoyed me that, in canon, Katara seems to have co-opted the mother that she shares with Sokka. When she said what she said in 'The Southern Raiders', I cringed, and remembered why she was never my favourite character in the first place. :o
I am really impressed with the way that you adapted your own narative, to make it fit within the canon version of Sokka and Katara's past.
Sokka not being able to remember his mother's face, seems to me, oddly enough, to be very genuine and deeply moving. To lose someone you love in the first place, is terrible, but to then find that your own memories of that person, are falling from your grasp, is like losing your loved one all over again. This oneshot, and your others, really help to show the misplaced guilt that lies behind the grief, and so, are extremely powerful little stories, bravo. :)
