| Mari83 chapter 21 . 3/1
Man, I reached the last chapter far too quickly and then a cliffhanger on top! Would love to see how it all ends...
| Mari83 chapter 20 . 3/1
Oh man, Suko, making my head stop!

Animals and Zuko - promises to be more fun ahead...

Completely sucked into this story. Love to get more of Zuko's story before the series!
| Geekgirl chapter 2 . 2/16
This is my second time reading through this story, and it is amazing! I honestly consider this to be canon to the show!

... At least he can say that he got to personally see the inside of a jail cell. (And hopefully this will keep him from doing something this kind of stupid again.)

I imagine that might be why he threw such a fit at Toph giving him a nickname. XD

The great thing about this story is that I can see Zuko having to go through all of these things along his voyage. In fact, he must have gone through events such as this, and this story is the single best collection of these events. A lot of things happened between Zuko's banishment and the Boy in the Iceberg that shaped him this way. I don't consider this a fanfic, I consider it canon.

"It looked like a drawing of something big and suspiciously phallic."
This is what makes the story amazing, how you can realistically insert extremely subtle references to other parts of the show, and also make it a mildly amusing joke. To explain the origins of the Drill, along with Zuko's amusing take on it, strengthens the entire series as a whole.

| Professor-Inkblot95 chapter 15 . 6/21/2013
I really love this story; you give such a great look into the mind of a driven, selfish pre-teen. Great work and I hope to see more from you!

Nice to see this continued. Yao is an interesting character, disaffected but sensible in his own way. And LOL he took Zuko to an absinthe den! I'm guessing it's not the same stuff Sokka sampled when he was lost in the desert; not enough hallucinations. Maybe it's a related but distinct breed, or something to do with the fermentation process.
Otherwise, this was a good character study of Zuko, his desperate energy, his suppressed rage, and the all-around shittiness that is his life. The descriptions of his physical discomfort are pretty good: one word of advice is to mix it up with actions to speed things up and make the situation more vivid. Actions like wincing and squeezing one's eyes shut at a tiny movement can be more effective than paragraphs of static description saying how everything hurts. It's a variation on show, don't tell, though personally l think it should be more like show, and tell, with definite emphasis on show and telling in short, controlled bursts between showing.
The mention of smoking, by the way, reminds me of a story by overlithe in which a firebender watches in disdain as a neighbor smokes, hoping the woman is not a firebender because it would ruin her bending ability. Since fire comes from the breath, I can definitely see tobacco use compromising bending - not that I think this would stop Yao, and at any rate it doesn't seem to be general knowledge since Zuko expressed no reservations about taking a drag.

There are a few grammatical errors in here, but they're largely unnoticeable. I can't wait for the next chapter.
