In all fairness to Sokka, Zuko WAS the one who started the fight. I mean, the guy drew swords on him while all he had to grab a broken pipe just to defend himself - implying that he was unarmed, or at least not carrying anything that would have helped in a sword fight. Self defense, natch. :P
But then I AM admittedly biased in Sokka's favor, so maybe that's just me. Still, though, it feels like the spirits were being a little too harsh on him, considering the circumstances - Sokka has very good reason to mistrust Zuko, and he WAS only acting in self defense. Not that he's blameless or anything, but in this instance at least it seems very unfair that Agni and Yue would blame him as much as Zuko, when all he did was bump into the guy while heading into a tea shop, where Zuko promptly flipped out and started attacking him.
Basically, I guess what I'm saying it that it seems an awful lot like blaming the victim, what with Sokka getting the same punishment as Zuko when all he was doing was fighting in self-defense - it's not like he would have been able to talk the guy down, really. If he hadn't fought back he would've been... well, actually, I suppose Zuko might have taken him captive and tried to make him reveal Aang's whereabouts, but Iroh would have been disapproving of this and tried to convince Zuko to let go of the past, and Sokka probably would not have helped matters by insulting and/or taunting Zuko, and Zuko would have lost his temper and started insulting Sokka back by calling him stuff like peasant and savage before once more trying to get Aang's location out of Sokka, only for Sokka to spit back that he was no traitor, and this would have caught Zuko off guard, and Sokka would take that opportunity to enumerate all the many things the Fire Nation had taken from him and his people, and finish his tirade by saying that he would die before betraying his sister or his friends... and then maybe Zuko either would have been caught off balance by this and started questioning his beliefs, or else would have lost his temper and offered to do Sokka in if he wanted to die so much, and if the latter Iroh probably would have stepped in and...
aw, dang it, I'm gonna end up doing a fanfanfic of this, aren't I? It's a very interesting concept, and it is giving me ideas, but I figure I would want to ask your permission before doing anything... if I DID do anything...
Cripes, and I've only finished the first chapter of this. WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME, BRAIN?

"She turned and stared in shock and horror. Zuko."
And then that part at the end of the chapter...
Oh, Avacado, you kill me with the irony! It's Sokka, but Katara doesn't know he's Zuko...
So, so well done. Usually I hate freaky-Friday switches. This? This is fantastic.

Wonder what Zuko will do and how he would react to Katara's constant "pats" of affection towards her brother?
| boyarina chapter 1 . 6/2/2013
Yes! This is great! :)

Oh god this is perfect

I don't think a story has made me cry in happiness. What a first. It was beautiful, and it held some amazing insights. Thank you.

To Sage of wind Dragons , the reason why Zuko didn't use firebending was because he didn't want any bystanders to realize he was a firebender, he and his uncle are in hiding remeber, besides remember sometimes Zuko can get carried away due to his temper. As for the crow bar, can't explain but hey everybody gets lucky sometimes.

Meh I've read better
| Sage of wind Dragons chapter 1 . 3/31/2013
yeah SOkka is nowhere even CLOSE to a level of training where at that point in time he could have killed Zuko even on accident and Zuko not even using fire when his life is in danger? are you nuts? the hell? I mean sokka with something that wasent the one sorta weapon he was trained for his boomerang and all?
also time travel... unless its actually just a funny spirit trip and all if they could do time travel then the 100 years war shouldn't have happened at All.
so yeah... your premise is so much fucked to hell its not even funny and how in the hell a crow bar really?
your premise, I am SO hating it at this moment..
also how does a crow bar stand up to a true sword? also when the fuck did zuko just have the swords on hand? he took the swords in a fight against Jet, and if this was immediately after it...
I don't really think that ZUko would need swords either he could knock SOkka out EASILY in some alleyway, walk past let hima ttack and take him out...
I hope Spirits were messing with people right here cause... seriously Im sure youra good writer and that this beginning part was a while ago but I CANT get past this first chapter. I am SORRY but I cant. its an interesting idea to have them swith but still.

Amazing job on the whole fanfiction! My only problem is that Sokka and Mai ended up together. I really think that shouldn't have happened, and I think Sokka should have ended up with Toph in the end. In my opinion, Zuko either belongs with Katara or Mai. Mostly Mai.

I started reading this fix, and honestly I almost didn't read past the first chapter. Though the concept was intriguing I wasn't quite sure it was being pulled off that well in the beginning, but I proceeded and got hooked. I actually stayed up all night reading, often feeling that pounding heartbeat that tends to come with suspense -and a good story. I noticed some spelling errors and malipropisms here and there, and sometimes the writing style felt a tad weak, but overall I thouroughly enjoyed this fic. It managed to coincide with canon enough to be believable, and yet strayed from it enough to be interesting. The characterizations were for the most part accurate. It also wasn't too predictable, at least to me, which is pretty great.
Okay well I don't mean to pick it apart too much. I tend to be picky with writing, so don't be discouraged. I mean really I felt the writing style in the Hunger Games to have weak points too, but that series was pretty good. So keep writing, because you're a heck of a lot better at it than I am. :D
P.S. Although almost not something I'd expect from Sokka my favorite moment had to be when he called Azula a psycho bitch. It was in the middle of the night in a house with thin walls and I had a really hard time not bursting into laughter. That line was kinda perfect.

Mmh, I just finished it. I loved this story! It's well written and one of the first chapter fics I've read and loved in such a long time. Thank you so much for writing it. I wish I could write a longer review, but I literally just woke up, 11 minutes ago, and started reading this. Either-way, I do love this story.
