| SockMage chapter 61 . 6/7
Enjoyed reading this. If you ever pick it back up I'll be sure to keep reading. The way you switched the pov between Sokka and Mai worked out really well. The main criticism I had was how little time is spent on Sokka reuniting with his family. Lived the bit where Katara realizes she doesn't really know Sokka but wanted more of that. Still am not disappointed to have read this, though. Thanks for writing this

Mai's internal commentary is actually the best thing! Your Mai has to be one of my favourite in fanfiction!
| Ginny A Heron chapter 21 . 9/28/2016
Your characterisation is amazing! You write both Sokka and Mai so well, they're both extremely in-character whilst you still manage to accommodate for the changes in their past! And both character's POV are a joy to read from, I love the way you have set out this story!
Also, I usually wouldn't read Ty Lokka, but the way you've justified it through the alternative path their lives have taken, I find myself actually shipping it in this story.
Finally, the whole story and plot is written in a reasonable and realistic manner, along with your writing being engaging throughout.
Thank you for this wonderful AU, they're hard to come by (especially with Maiko, those are rare)!
I'm looking forward to the rest of the story! :)

WHO IS IT IN THE POV OF? THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY! IT'S EITHER SOKKA OR MAI AND IM LEANING TOWARDS SOKKA BUT THINGS ARENT REALLY MAKING SENSE BUT IM STILL GONNA KEEP READING ANYWAY.

I admit at the beginning I had no clue what was going on but NOW I SEE
I love how complex this is and how it all fits together

Judging by the lack of updates, I'm guessing this story is dead. I'm sad, it was very good, but thank you for writing what you did write regardless.
You have a very interesting and witty writing style. I can't wait to look into some of your other works.

I like your policy of having at least one Terry Pratchett reference per chapter (taxes or lack thereof, famous last stands, gilt, etc.).
| Whyhow chapter 57 . 4/26/2015
I like the Discworld references, and the taxes thing fit in fairly well, although I see why you had to alter the ending. I understand the darker parts work better for the general tone, but I'd probably stop reading this if the jokes stopped.
| Whyhow chapter 54 . 4/26/2015
I really like the Mai sections, especially the strange description of Agni in this one.
| Whyhow chapter 47 . 4/26/2015
Well, it wasn't as bad as I thought and, unsurprisingly, it was well written. I wonder what, if any view you will take on Ty Lee's thing with auras.
| Whyhow chapter 45 . 4/26/2015
You stole the "named meat" joke from Terry Pratchett. Seems like a good chapter, but I suspect that you are going to have more angst than I would have preferred.
| Whyhow chapter 40 . 4/26/2015
The last chapter wasn't that interesting, but this one at least had some nice antics.
| Whyhow chapter 35 . 4/26/2015
A lot of this is fairly dark, but you have a few really good lines mixed in. For example, "'You must be insane.' 'Well, yes, but that's beside the point.'"
| Whyhow chapter 34 . 4/26/2015
I knew it! Everyone else probably did too, but it's still a bit of an accomplishment.

I assume that the piece in question is the white lotus tile. He seems eccentric enough and I didn't quite catch his age.
