Hey-hey, an update! Glad to see you continuing this!
It was good to read about how accepting Junko's quasi-family was concerning her secret bending and history. I wonder what'll happen next?

I wish you and your family all the best.

This is exactly the type of story I've been searching for! Your characters are believable and well rounded, and I love that you decided to give them some development past the end of the show to do any more adult things. I also felt they were all a bit young to be thrown into the "M" rating area without some maturing. Its really nice to see how everyone is growing too, not just Katara and Zuko. So, in other words, I adore your writing and this story.
Onto the sadder part: As you can probably tell, I've been perusing some older fics, and I'm sorry to see that you haven't touch this story (or possibly ff?) for seven months. I hope you can find it in your heart to continue this wonderful story knowing there are some people (like me) still hoping to find the rare good story in a jumble of OOC and lemons. I understand if you have lost your muse or don't even get on this site anymore, but I hope you can re-discover your passion and continue what was going to be my new favorite story one here.

I LOVE Momo! And I love that you included him in you story! For some reason all of the other stories I have read chose to exclude Momo, which is a pity!

I like slowly building into things and character development so kudos to you.
But, in the time the Avatar series is set, isn't getting married around fifteen and sixteen common practice? And having children soon common as well? Also, was the taking of contreceptives really practiced? Ecpecially if she wasn't having sex at all, would she need to? I doubt women back then took contreceptives every day, just expecting some guy to jump out from behind a bush and rape them.
I hope this story sheds some light on what kind of propaganda the fire nation used to spread about the water tribes.

Not to knit-pick, but wouldn't the cities around the volcano be best for agriculture? Volcanic soil is the most fertile in the world. And poor soil that has been burned with it's natural vegetation is wonderful, that's the beauty of natural forest fires, when the fire burns the dead and old vegetation, it's ash replenishes the nutrients in the soil, making it fertile once more for new life. The burned lands should be plenty fine for new crops to be grown.
Other than that there were some spelling errors. But I like the story and the character development.
Only criticism I have plot wise is wouldn't the Avatar be invited to this multi-national meeting as well? I would think the Avatar, master of all elements, in charge of keeping balance to the world and all four nations in harmony with nature and the spiritual world and what not, would be an important guest, even if he is still a child, his presence would be symbolic to the people, an assurance that the Fire Lord truly does have the best intentions for world peace and restoration, 'cuz who knows better about that stuff than the Avatar, right? Even if Aang would just be a figure head, it would be a learning oppurtunity for him.

I like what I've read so far, I only have one question- What happened to Suki?

I hope you have an amazing Christmas and I am sorry for your loss. Don't feel to bad about letting us go without, my stories haven't had a new chapter in two months because i was participating in NaNoWriMo. (google to find out what it is) Your reason is much better than mine. Heal well, I'm sure it is hard but your Christmas is sure to be wonderful.

Those Fire Nation-born waterbenders that Sokka's party are gathering to bring back to the Southern Water Tribe, should shake things up down there far, far more than the Northern Water Tribe emigrants that came with Pakku! I can just picture some of the friction and culture clashes that will ensue.
But the antics of Hama's urn, hmmm... Wonder why Koh didn't do a more thorough job there? I also wonder what's going to happen when that urn is buried at sea with the rest. I'm picturing this mini-Koizilla rising up, sporting a vaguely feminine form and a cackling laugh, but I'm probably wrong.
So will Sokka find Ursa alive and well? And all we really saw of Ursa was through the eyes of Zuko as a little boy, the son who loved her dearly; what is the ex-princess really like, I wonder?
And I wonder what's happening with Aang, too. For a scar to have already formed from the cut over his eyebrow, it's been at least a week since the wound was inflicted, and he's evidently gone back to the Spirit World again since then too; all those spirit-journeys are taking a toll on his physical body. Why hasn't Roku or Kyoshi or any of the past Avatars-the real spirits, that is, not like the weird Kuruk-shaped remnant that popped up in the last chapter-popped up to remind him that as important as his spiritual training is, his body is mortal and needs tending on a regular basis?
