This is the first Zutara fic I've read in a long time-it was perfect! Loved it. :)

Great plot and it's really well written. Honestly, it's one of the best Zutara fics out there (and there are tons of zutara fics).

I had the feeling when I was reading this that I’d read it before. When I got to the end of six, I became sure of it – it’s been nearly a decade, but I first read this in high school, not long after it was published, back before Zutara’s canon existence was still possible. -sigh-
Nine years later and I doubt comments on here make much of a difference, but for what it’s worth: I thought this was good. It’s definitely a cut above even most good Avatar fanfiction, and it wasn’t lacking in plot at all – it just wasn’t an action oriented plot. I like the setting within S2 and most of the ways in which you altered the canon storyline. A few things I kept running into (i.e. the frequent reference to the characters’ eye colours and the heavily physical romance) acted as stumbling blocks; that said, as another reviewer pointed out, you knew very well that you were writing a romance, and that’s exactly what it felt like.
As far as characters, I liked Zuko’s “found freedom” behind the Blue Spirit identity, a persona that let him disguise most of his awkward interpersonal characteristics, and Katara’s sexual awakening was surprisingly accurate for someone of her age while also remaining age appropriate. And though I had to stop reading and think about Zuko’s reasoning behind giving Katara the initial dance lesson, it ended up being easy to accept. Again, the Blue Spirit persona seemed to act as an escape clause to his usual identity and responsibilities, sort of an escape from himself. Likewise, Katara accepting a dance from a masked stranger was very appropriate for someone of her emotional maturity – were she even a couple of years older, I doubt she’d have been innocent enough, but here she was and you pulled it off with surprising grace. I ultimately felt they were more in lust than in love, but your hinting at their thought processes in the final scene suggests the potential is there for more.
Where you could have done better: integrating the Gaang into the story; the search and eventual rescue of Appa; some mechanics of the festival scene; development of the attraction between the two when they’re together (it felt a bit sudden). I also didn’t fully understand the purpose of Song and Jin in the story, least of all Song. Ultimately it was good, not great, but definitely enjoyable. You do very well with the Blue Spirit in ways few authors take advantage of.
