I have to admit I stopped reading this story after a 3rd of the way through this chapter, so please forgive me if I mention something that you need that you already have. Anyway, the reason I stopped was because of the transition between the prologue and chapter 1. The transition is very very jarring - I got lost almost immediately.
Basically from your prologue you're talking about Song travelling with Zuko and Iroh as if you were foreshadowing. It's good to foreshadow once in a while, but you need to follow through with that to make the literary device work. Or, if you were not intending to foreshadow, then what I would do is focus on Zuko and Song in Ba Sing Se and provide backstory as to why they are together.
The setup you have now doesn't seem to work because you have a strong lead in one direction by the end of your prologue, but then you completely skip over a lot of potential character development and plot when you take your reader to Ba Sing Se in your first chapter. The details you mentioned in the prologue were very interesting, and I was looking forward to reading more about that personally.
But instead you switched to introducing your oc - which is fine that you have an oc but you need to provide some more details first to make the introduction more clear. Also transitioning between scenes is esssential. I felt like you went from talking about Zuko, Song, Iroh, and Pao running the teashop to a fight scene in a split second and with no real connection as to why one is happening after the other.
Another thing about your OC is that I felt you disserviced Aneko a little by not providing detailed descriptions of her appearance, and anything about her personality or backstory. Aneko kind of just shows up without any real reason explaining her necessity.
Zuko seems to know her as well, but the reader isn't given an explanation as to how they met. You also seem to write in a way, I noticed, that assumes the reader knows about Aneko beforehand - which may be true from other stories, but for people like me, this kind of a cold introduction is very jarring and confusing.
As a recommendation, I think it might behoove you to hold off on Zuko and Song arriving in Ba Sing Se, and let them travel together first. This way you have a lot of room for character growth, relationship growth, and you'll be tackling what I assume most readers, including myself, came to read this fic for - Song and Zuko.
Altogether I think your ideas are quite good, if a little unpolished (and I especially mean unpolished in descriptions. You absolutely, positively, need more setting and description. Part of the reason why your story is confusing is also because of this). Anyway, I wish you best of luck, and I hope this review is n't too critical of your story without proper backup.
Take care and good luck with your future stories.

I actually really enjoyed this fic. You have a great writing style and it was a really pleasant read. I enjoyed seeing Zuko with friends and so happy with this family you gave him. I also thought you did a really good job with the relationship between Song and Zuko. The little changes you added, with Shan and exploring Jin's role was good too. It is a shame that despite all the wonderful changes that Zuko made the same decisions he did even if they were for different reasons. I suppose that made this fic even better. The ending was a little abrupt but it went with the cannon plot. Anyway, great job!

This is truly a work of art. Beautifully written, I couldnt stop reading. You created a wonderous and mesmerizing world. Poetic, funny, and just down right amazing, it held my attention the whole way through. I waited until the end to write a review because I was so anxious to see what happened next. You, my friend, have true talent.

I loved this story, the humor, the friendship, Zuko coming out of his shell just a little bit earlier. There were lots of times reading this I thought 'Wow, what I would give to have that kind of camaraderie, and those kind of caring friends," or something along those lines. It was a great read, in my humble opinion, even though sometimes I felt like you were skipping around a bit too much. I kept feeling like I was missing bits and pieces of what was going on, as you didn't really show how their friendships and bonds developed, just the defining moment of each. That being said you left this little novella on quite a cliffhanger, I'd love to read a sequel, knowing you it would probably be great, but thats biased, since I love your work anyway. If you do choose to continue with a sequel I will be an avid reader, I would say you get my full support, but you get that anyway by default D.
Looking forward to your next masterpiece, whatever that may be.

ZOMG! You wrote it! I remember reading your preview for this months and months ago and thinking that it would be an awesome story, screw my accounting quiz, I'm reading this now!
| Mirrorfaced chapter 11 . 6/20/2009
Woah, wild ride. Very, very interesting story, I was very into it. I was a bit wary of your OCs, but they grew on me. Aneko's funky mudbending thing irked me a bit, but it wasn't really emphasized except in that one chapter, so nothing exploded in a fit of unbridled rage. Very nice fic, though I didn't get the point of the Fox, he or she left a lot more questions for me than answers, and the end just seemed a bit incomplete. Still, a very kick-awesome fic that I'll have to come back to sometime.

If you're really done with Avatar fanfiction, that's understandable. Fanfiction is for fun, and shouldn't feel like an obligation. To be honest though, after this chapter, it's a real tease to mention you had sequels planned and then say you give up. I really wanted to read your take on the next season. There's so much left to work with; I don't believe it would be "a bad rehash."
If you're sure you don't want to continue, then all I can say is thank you for sharing this story. This alternate take was really enjoyable to read, and you write ZukoxSong interaction so lovely. Giving Jin, Jet, Longshot, and Smellerbee a little more light earned a big plus from me, too. I hope you do consider writing more for this so that I can finally learn what the two words on Zuko's note were, and how the reunion will go about, and... (I've got lots of questions.)
It's okay if you really don't want to, but I think a proper conclusion would be nice.
