This doesn't make me cry...Oh no, it doesn't. Instead, it makes my heart ache and even if it's just a piece of writing about a fictional character, it makes me think of all the maybes and what ifs that surround a death that just shouldn't happen. Oh man...

The image of the empty and silent Jasmine Dragon, overlaid with the image of the sunlight-filled could have been future (that we did get at the end of ATLA)...
"Amidst all of the maybes and should-have-beens...there is joy and a bright future where no one is left behind, and where they all have each other."
"But maybes are just dead dreams that sit like ash, dusting unused tables that lie forgotten behind the locked tea house doors."
Just that image, ending with the locked tea house doors. Broke my heart. Thank you for this gem.

Well, guess I'll go cry now.

I cried. This is so, so sad. And Uncle Iroh? Just... I can't describe it.
And he /tasted ash/ in his /tea/.
If Aang had died, at least they would have all been at least a little prepared for it. He was going to fight Ozai. But Zuko? It's like you had Sokka say... after all he's been through, he's supposed to be indestructible.
And all hopes were pinned on him to become the next Fire Lord and lead the world into love and peace, to right the wrongs of his family. If he's gone... there's no one else that could possibly take his place. If it were Aang, there's always the hope that there would be the new Avatar, that Aang would be reborn into the next life. But Zuko? No. One. Can replace him.
And /dang/ Mai would be livid. Probably the first time since she was a baby that she'd ever cried.
She would have hated that Azula's grave be placed next to Zuko's, though.

So Mai killed Azula?

I like the focus on Iroh and Sokka's reactions, rather than a more typical focus on Aang and especially Katara. I do think Sokka would have mourned not being able to get to know Zuko better, since the Boiling Rock episode marked the beginning of a friendship that should have grown into something quite deep, and honestly I think the two of them connected better than Aang did with Zuko. And Aang and Katara would totally blame themselves-you're right there. But Iroh's reaction would be the most tragic. Zuko truly is all he has left.

Once Iroh had opened the scroll, he hadn't needed to say a word. Everyone else in the room had understood the moment they saw the slump of Iroh's shoulders, saw the cumulative weight of his years tearing his spirit down.
The moment they saw the fire in Iroh's eyes die into ash. Every time I read this that kills me. It's just so sad and this whole fic is beautiful

UM... THANKS FOR RIPPING MY HEART OUT?
| CrazyCartoonistOtaku chapter 1 . 8/27/2015
Okay ouch why did you do that to me... :(
This is literally the saddest fanfic I've found in this fandom, and I really cried. I have to say, it was really something. I loved the realistic interpretations of the fic and honestly liked what you added with Iroh and Azula (and how you snuck in Mai's feelings about all this too), so so much. I also loved that you chose Sokka to finish off, since I did like their friendship quite a bit. Thanks for the great read, however short.

*sniffles* It's beautiful... And I can't say anymore, because words cannot express the beauty of the feels.
| Kandai chapter 1 . 5/15/2015
This will forever be one of my favorite fics of all time and I'm really happy to have rediscovered it, even if it has broken my heart in a million pieces (again). Thank you for this text.

This was brilliant. a gem.
| hi chapter 1 . 1/4/2015
*sobs quietly inside* love this. Its so sad. I wish there was a fic where Zuko was reincarnated if he had died at any point within the series.
