Love the story so much. Many interesting scenes you put in. Katara's line is... all I can say is "OH fuck" and I think Toph and Zuko agrees. Is this ever gonna update though, or is it given up upon?

I know it's been so long since this has been updated that it'll likely never be updated again, but I've spent the last day reading this and enjoying every chapter! It's wonderfully written and pace is steady and the build up is excellent. Even if it is never updated again, I want you to know this has been a joy to read and you've done a marvelous job of capturing the individual voices for each character.

Great chapter! Loved Katara's pondering at the end. Also love how you keep weaving Blue in and out of the story

Uh oh...man, I can't wait to see how that turns out, even if I have to wait three years.

I know you haven't really paid mind to this story in a while, but it's really good, and I wouldn't be opposed to an update...

i gotta be honest here, i was actually expecting this to be another one those dumbass fics that i've briefly seen and thought 'i'm gonna avoid this forever' because of how shitty the writing was, or how badly the plot was worked out. but then i realised it was damn good writing, and the plot's somehow even more awesome than the series (which is an amazing feat, trust me), so now i basically just love this fic. my only real issue is that sometimes i don't really get what's going on, like when people're talking and i'm just thinking 'how is such and such relevant to this situation?' but i can get the general idea. basically, i love this fic and i really hope we get to see zuko/blue's reaction to katara saying that at the end!

This is a wonderful fic. It's such an interesting look at Zuko and at the Gaang, and it's fabulously written. :D I look forward to more!

Firstly, I'd like to give you well wishes regarding your health. I hope you're feeling better and/or otherwise improving.
I also would like to express how much I enjoy this story. It's original (which is surprisingly hard to find), and I enjoy your characterizations of each of the characters. I think you are one of the very few (great) authors of the ATLA fandom to explore Zuko as a not-very-good-bender. I really like how Zuko is having to deal with his familial relationships, nation's propaganda, and entire foundation falling to pieces/showing its true colors. I like the foil created by how GAang treats Zuko versus Blue. I also enjoy the foil Zuko exhibits when he feels like he has to act like himself ("I am Zuko, son of Ursa and Firelord Ozai") versus when he acts like Blue.
I really enjoy this.
Thank you for writing this.

Loving reading this! All the character portrayals are wonderful and I'm loving Toph and Zuko having to get along. (How have I only found this fanfic now? Holy shit its great!)
| hogwarts.student.forever chapter 26 . 6/9
This is hands down the best fanfiction I have ever read. The characters are portrayed in a way that made me have to go back and rewatch episodes, because I had so much trouble distinguishing the characters and your portrayal. I really hope you continue this, you have done an amazing-no, perfect- job on this.
| Basil Allegri chapter 26 . 5/11
I probably find Blue's interactions with team avatar about as amusing as Toph does - nice tensions going there. I also enjoy it a lot when you do Iroh and Sokka's perspective; they're surprisingly insightful.
| GlueDew chapter 26 . 5/10
I'm slightly ashamed to say I read this whole story in less than 2 days, considering the incredible length and the fact that I should have spent that time studying, but this story was just so amazingly written that I felt compelled to read it through to the end (or to the end of what's written to far, which I hope is not the end-end). I've always liked Zuko and the way his character was handled in the show, but usually fanfics don't get his character quite right, emphasizing and negating different aspects of his personality out of proportion. Your Zuko, however, is probably the best-written characterization I've seen. I love the things he does and thinks, and also hate them: his stubbornness, his conflicting views about his nation and who should be his enemies, his naivety and almost purposeful blindness to the true nature of Ozai and Azula... spot on.
You've got all the other characters down as well, like Iroh and Toph and Suki, but since much of the story is told from Zuko's POV, it stands out the most. A lot of authors get caught up in what they think a character should be doing and don't pay enough attention to what a character would do, but you don't have that problem.
I see you haven't updated in a while, and I hope that doesn't mean you've dropped the story because I really want to see the rest of the characters' growth and read your incredible writing, but what you have is great enough that I would happily reread it multiple times and ponder what might happen next myself (thought it wouldn't be as good as whatever you come up with, I'm sure). Kudos!

Yeah, realistic culture clash! Always love a good side conflict. Adds spice to a plot line.
