|Reviews for Not Stalking Firelord Zuko|
| BoogieBoy chapter 26 . 4/25/2013
A very nice bonding scene with Mai and Katara, I also LOVED the part with Katara and Sokka.
I'm sorry I'm unable to give a more substantial review, but it's just a very nice combination of smile-bringing moments.
The part with the dowager was less so, but you can't have everyone love you, I guess. Fortunetely she's not someone that can do anything about Katara or Zuko's love life.

I'm glad you posted what you had. The long wait has caused me to be irritable, my feet swelled up, I'm having cramps, a low-grade fever, and a rash on my face.
They keep trying to tell me it's a combo of PMDD and a Lupus flare, but I know the real reason. "Not Stalking Firelord Zuko" deprivation.
Another excellent chapter. I loved it. I will wait as long as it takes.

Haha, had to admit I was shocked at the shorter notes... I love your rantings, but I loved this chapter all the same! It's so nice to see some friendly interaction between Katara and Mai. I really like how you avoided the jealous girl trope and made it realistic, with there being some jealousy still, but both being able to try and rein it in and work beyond it. And I think Katara finally showing Mai how to do something would make her feel finally more on equal footing with her (well, I guess what I mean is they were separated in terms of status... and lifestyle), which is a good step to being friends.
I loved Sokka here too. Despite all his silly antics, I really believe he's one of the best big brothers one can have. He's goofy enough to cheer you up, has enough of the "dude are you serious" attitude to make you realize you're over-analyzing or overreacting, and is caring and serious enough to listen when you really need it. I just loved Katara and Sokka's interactions here, and am glad they had time to do something a little childish together like raiding the kitchens.
And I loved Song here too. Good for her for refusing what must seem like a very tempting offer in a pragmatic sense. And her fan movement was just awesome. I would have loved to see the Dowager's face, but I think trying to imagining it for myself is even better.
Thank you for this update! I hope your life lets you have a break soon so you can relax, and I hope you are able to update again soon!

I'm so glad Katara has finally started telling people. Sokka is so cool. I get all mushy and gushy inside thinking about how sweet he is and how great it'd be to have him for an older brother. None of my siblings have that sort of touchy-feely loving relationship with each other or with me. Word needs to get out about Zuko and Katara. But I hope Zuko doesn't go too far the other direction and go crazy and get upset at Katara for telling everyone behind his back, and be all "How can you do this after you said you didn't want to blah blah blah". Because I feel like that'd totally be plausible. What with him being a drama llama. :P. Regarding Mai and Jet, I think I used to almost like the idea of them getting together, but now I don't think it's right. I don't know what you plan to do with that, but I hope Katara's just making up stuff and getting it wrong like she tends to do. It'd just be another learning experience for her.
I'm so used to getting huge chapters all at once and it taking often times more than an hour or even two to read. I read this half so quick, and when it suddenly ended I was like.. where's the rest? Also, I'm going to really miss your author's notes the length of half the chapter. That was always one of the best parts of the updates. Can't wait for the second half.

Yay! Short, but a lot less troubling than the last chapter. So... yay?
I really liked Sokka's reaction to Katara telling him about her and Zuko. No immediate ranting, no 'why didn't you trust me' and no 'No Katara, boys have cooties!'. Very reasonable and mature. Well, for Sokka.

Thank you so much for even getting this chapter out! I really appreciate you continuing to write for us despite real life eating your time, though it's a shame about the rambly notes being cut down (learning why you did everything you did in each chapter is one of my favourite parts of this story; it just shows how much thought and effort you put in for this). This chapter was amazing I love the Mai/Katara friendship and I'm so pleased Katara managed to tell Sokka ahh family bonding 3
tl;dr, this is my absolute favourite fanfiction of all time ever thank you so much for truly bringing me into the world of Zutara and other perfectly justified and amazingly adorable ships. I'm looking forward to the next instalment _

Go emergency meaty dumplings! I agree and subscribe to that idea that food helps all bad situations become better :)
I love the loving relationship that Sokka and Katara have. It makes me go all fuzzy inside :)
Go Song! Song wins at life. She understands the value of a person, also learning the language of fans for the win!
Also Mai and Katara are awesome together! I think that they'll make really good friends, as long as Katara never says "Zuko and I".
Also Jet Hilarious at all times. Even went being talked about by Mai.

I was wondering where you went. I like the way this chapter went and all the bonding between Katara and Sokka was just beautiful. You rarely see them interact these days. The drama with Song well done and I like the way Katara is comparing herself with Mai from back in the early days in the Western Air Temple.

Omg this half chapter was awesome sokka was so Sweet and Funny and he really comforted her His reaction was nice Too Hmm i may Start to think that Mai actually kinda likes Jet but obviously She Wont admit it but maybe im wrong and She is just annoyed :) I cant wait for the Other half :D Thanks !

Update as soon as you can. I will read this story cover to cover, even i it kills me. it's awesome. :)

So now Sokka knows, and Mai knows. Mai I can definitely see keeping the secret, but Sokka... mmmnope, I give it two days, tops! Unless he learns something in the next few hours which convinces him that this Really, Really does need to be kept Tippy-Top Secret even from Toph.
I have no idea what that something will be, or how Zuko and Katara's reconciliation will result in them agreeing to slow things down on the physical side (at least until they go back to the Fire Nation), but otherwise this story will be diverting from the timeline laid out in your other delightful story, "The Crooked Thing."

Eep! I loved this chapter so much! I'm so glad people are starting to find out - I feel like if Katara and Zuko kept it a secret, they'd be stuck in a holding pattern and the relationship would stagnate. Plus, the secret coming out means probable drama, yay!
I can't wait to find out how Toph and Uncle (who I think both know and are laughing at Zuko and Katara behind their backs) react when Zuko and Katara come clean.
I like the developing relationship between Katara and Mai, and I like how you depict Mai. Sokka and Katara's conversation was adorable and so funny. Yeah, I loved it all, essentially!
And I can't wait to find out what happens with Song and Kuei and the Dowager. And Jet and Mai. But mostly I'm looking forward to Katara and Zuko sorting themselves/their relationship out, and Katara apologizing to Zuko, or making amends somehow.
I'm looking forward to the next chapter :)
