I don't know how I missed this final chapter when it was posted last month, but I'm glad I found it now!
It is sad to know that no more chapters will be written for this story, but I completely understand; I had to do the same thing with my Gargoyles "Life Goes On" series, bringing it a close with with one last bare-bones synopsis of what would have happened next to most of the main characters.
It's fascinating, unexpected and yet oh-so-appropriate, Ty Lee claiming Benso-Nori to spare Sokka and end the battle! I admit I'm a little surprised that Azula didn't spare even a blast of fire for Ty Lee before running away, but perhaps she made the split-second decision that any offensive move she made would draw the rest out of their momentary stupefaction to attack her, so she'd better just get out while the getting's good.
Since you're open to specific questions about the untold story, I would very much like more specifics on:
The scene when Katara and Zuko confess their marriage to Hakoda: exactly how they break it to him, and how he reacts. As well as, if it's a Very Negative reaction, how both Katara and Zuko react to that, both immediately and in the long term.
Whatever details, characters and eventful moments you'd already decided would go into Katara and Zuko's second wedding.

As much as I'm sad to say that I couldn't read the rest of this story, I'm grateful for the little synopsis you gave. Gives completion to the story instead of being left hanging.
It's understandable how you feel, especially this far after the series has ended and how it ended. Life gets in the way and if the passion you had for a story has diminished, no reason to continue since it could turn something you loved writing into a chore to get done.
I loved reading every bit of it and enjoyed how you write. Keep up the writing since you have a talent for it :)

I've just finished re-reading this story because it has been so long. I love it just as much as I did the first time. it's so incredibly wonderful and romantic. I'm glad you at least gave us this last chapter to console us.

This was a really good story. I'm so glad you decided to tell us that the story will probably remain unfinished and gave us a brief synopsis. So many stories will just end with a normal chapter never to be heard from again. if only more authors did this. Good luck on all your future projects.

I'm sorry that your muse for this was killed by the ending. This had a lot of promise. I hope to see your writing elsewhere.

Thank you so much for your time and energy. Don't let the canon ending to the show bother you. It was written for people who believe a marriage-age responsible, mature female would fall for an irritatingly immature 12 yr. old monk with the mentality of a 6 yr. old she's treated as a baby for a year. The writers clearly didn't do their research on the behavior and mentality of 12-yr. olds at that time- or any time. They wrote Aang as a toddler most of the time and Toph as a 30-something-yr. old (what was the "Kiss my Grits" lady's name? Her).
Annnyway, fan fiction writers care more about the characters than the people making money off of them. Yeah, I know, Duh! This is why it's important to take the good parts of the show, and write your own stories! Iroh would so approve. He would name a tea after you!
I love this story and re-read it on a regular basis. In fact, I logged on to re-read it and was surprised with an update! Imagine my delight!
There were a couple of things that I didn't agree with. For what he did to his children alone, Ozai should never see daylight again. If she's any kind of a mother, dragon mate or not, she would not have anything to do with him. The next one is a pet peeve of mine Katara should have apologized to Aang for not telling him right away that she and Zuko were married. However, she should not have apologized or had to have fought him because she loved Zuko. That drives me nuts. It also drives me nuts when Katara puts Aang in front of Zuko all the time. I was so glad you called her on this. Then I was unhappy again when you had him go along with her anyway. Oh well. Win some. Lose some. Lastly, it's Aang's destiny to defeat Ozai in whatever lame-ass way he decides to do it.
I'm about to go into DT's because it's been too long since I re-read this so I have to go now.
I seriously thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing this. It has brought me hours of enjoyment.

Well happy and sad. I was happy that you update and sad you ended short. I completely horrified how the show ended, trust me, I was... hurt. Tremendously. I stop reading Zuko and Katara stories because of this. But when I started reading Zuko and Katara stories in fanfiction totally forgot what is important. I love this pair so much I began searching stories of them.
I found yours, this a beautiful piece and it reminds, Rosemary Rogers historical romance novels. I literally sacrifice my sleep just continued reading your story. You have so much charisma in this story that I am hooked. You and few authors I read done excellent job. Its a real shame its not completed. And its in my favorites.
This is your decision, even though you are not the only author that happened to stop because of the show. I don't this advice might help or make sense. Even we lost the war (kataang), you should at least won a battle to leave your mark. I am not General Iroh X-). I support your decision.
Well good luck and take care. Peace.
Your big fan.

Wow...that really sucks... it's unfortunate-this story was really interesting and super cool, but you gotta do what you gotta do and sometimes this happens in writing. It's been great reading this and if you do continue later on, awesome! But if not, it's been a real blast.
