| Tezi the Waterbender chapter 2 . 2/28
the sad thing is that it's easier for me to imagine the water tribe kids evil than azula sane like this. Avatar is great about making their characters complex and all, but while I always felt bad for Azula, I could never imagine her as a normal human being.

Hmmm. It would make more sense if katana was chasing the Avatar with her brother because she can actually waterbend. And it it would be better if Zuko and Iroh could bend too. Iroh could have lost his arm and that is why he isn't as powerful as he was in the canon. That way the characters stay the same biologically while behaving differently due to environment.

Ok so I just wanted to say that I am so pleased that you wrote this summary. I have read so many fics where the author just got up and quit and while I understand that everyone has their own life and reasons, it is so frustrating. I wish everyone would do this (after just finishing the story) and I'm actually really pleased with the pairings. I liked the idea of SokkaAzula, it was sort of like a DR parallel to Zutara which pacified my Zutara crave. Since it just didn't seem like a possibility or a good idea in the context of the story. Also I thought DR Katara dying was good, just because I didn't really want her becoming good, it would have messed with the parallel of the story. I sort of wished Zuko would have ended with Suki, hear me out, I really like the idea of him falling for the enemy and vice versa. Plus she's such a strong willed female character I thought it would make a good match. Overall it was one of the most worth while fics I've read in a while and brought back awesome memories from the show (which I tried to imagine with the characters reversed) I'm still not a fan of all the jokes Zuko made but it didn't really effect the story overal . And it wasn't revolved around romance which I is hard to find these days. So anyways I don't know if you still read your reviews but this is my final analysis on your story.

Ok, I really am loving your story, but not in a million years, in any AU, can I imagine Zuko refer to anyone as buddy.

Ok so when you first started with the Aang thinking Toph was pretty I panicked a little. I really, really dislike the idea of Taang, to me it seems like it's just a way for Zutarians (even though I usually am one) to have Aang paired off, but their friendship is just too priceless, which you presented excellently in the dream scene, pure gold.

Ok I know you said you weren't going to change the songs but I thought I'd point it out, you had them sing winter spring summer fall, which would be highly suspicious if they were in the distorted reality, where the seasons go winter fall summer spring. Idk I thought you might want to change that if you ever got the chance. Just so everything seemed more convincing

What?! no no no no, Katara can't be good in this, that's cheating! to be honest I'm hoping it's not Katara, but the only other water tribe girl in the show is Yue and they don't look the same.

I feel like you've done a good job with Azula, but I feel like Zuko acts too much like Sokka, maybe that will get better though
| TigerStriper chapter 4 . 8/22/2013
Is it bad that I can't wait to meet twisted, demented Katara? And on another note regarding Sokka's scar, I'm kind of picturing it looking a bit like Scar's from the lion king (sorry that's the best comparison I could think of) does that sound about right?

Thank-you for giving a finisher instead of abandoning it totaly

What a shame...it sounds like it could have been great. Oh, what could have been...
So this story has somewhat inconsistent pacing, but if you know the series the gaps are easy to fill. I didn't see Ty Lee coming (saw the reviews...got spoilered, oops) but I did figure on Yue from the beginning, and Suki once we met Mai.
The second two-thirds of this story sound amazing. I'll admit, the "Lady or the Tiger" type ending is NOT my favorite thing ever, but I respect your creative vision and see how it would work.
And the thing with two worlds colliding...that sounds like it could have been fantastic, but that would be so difficult to do right...the idea reminds me of this Young Justice fic, Dare Not Meet In Dreams, where they accidentally stop Batman's parents being killed and set off a ripple effect...which is kinda beside the point, but the thing is, it's fabulous done right.
I'm sorry this wasn't finished. Thanks for giving us the summary. Now I'm off to watch Jet and The Storm again, because this story made me realize I haven't seen them in long enough that I'm beginning to forget them!

Yay! Ty Lee! She's my favorite, right up there with Sokka.
This story is so not what I was expecting. It took me a while to get into it, since everything is much more different than I thought it would be. Also...the beginning feels really rushed. It's like that until about chapter 8, when you really start to get into the new stuff, the things that aren't just opposites of the first episodes of the series. I guess that's because we already basically know all that, huh? It's better now, though. The pacing improved when you introduced the big changes.
It took me a ridiculously long time to realize this was where Ty Lee would be joining them-which I already knew from the Book 1 fan art I found from your profile...oops, spoiler alert, huh? :)
Anyway, I love Ty Lee, and I'm glad to see her, since Sokka is a bad guy now. And I wasn't expecting Katara to make an appearance this early on. I guess I'm still caught up in my assumptions that everything was just going to be opposite elements, but I thought she would be more like Azula. From her one appearance so far (I'm on chapter 14) I think she's still Katara, just...evil. Which I suppose was the intention, but it's weird because Katara is intensely loyal and cares deeply about her family and friends...and I'm rambling.
There is one more thing, something that's bothering me a little, and that's the lack of Zuko. He doesn't really...have a purpose. He's just kind of there for the sake of being there. The thing is, Sokka's a polymath (inventor, swordsman, strategist) and totally competent without being a bender, but Zuko, well, he hasn't shown any skills yet. Even his training with Mai and her Assassins' Guild haven't brought him out of the background. He says maybe two throwaway lines every couple of chapters and that's it.
That's all I can think of at the moment. If you don't appreciate my (hopefully useful and constructive) criticism, that's fine with me; I hope it doesn't come across as harsh, because that wasn't my intention. I really do like your story; if I didn't, I wouldn't bother to criticize it. Thank you for writing it.
