|Reviews for Not Stalking Firelord Zuko|
| MADStar529 chapter 4 . 11/6/2015
Great chapter. Love the coronation and the present giving. Iroh and Zuko are so sweet.

Great chapter. Mai's back! Ooh. The Kyoshi Warriors are great. Ty Lee is just so bubbly. Love that Katara's staying in the fire nation.
| MADStar529 chapter 2 . 11/6/2015
Great chapter. Love Katara going to Zuko and talking to him.
| MADStar529 chapter 1 . 11/6/2015
Great chapter. That ending was adorable. The political talk was interesting. Not surprised Ozai tried to assassinate Zuko so soon.

Amazing. Truly amazing. Listen, if you want to see any fanart, Google Pugletz on deviantart. Sh/he makes the BEST. ABSOLUTE BEST! Zutara fanart on the web. Lost of faves from me.
I always thought that Kataang was wholly unrealistic, and that Bryke were undercutting their own characters. And don't even get me started on the "political issues" (coughkorrasamicough). I don't know whether they were deliberately trying to troll their fans or think we're just that inept.
Your story is arguably better than canon, because it showcases the very real world of Avatar in such a way that not only makes it more believable, but also relatable. It's not being cynical, it's being realistic. It almost saddens me that Mike and Bryan had to make such infantile decisions to pander to fans, and to prevent their viewership from falling. A part of me actually believes that they only did the things they did, because of publicity, and also because they're (gasp) men. I'm a guy myself, but even I could see the absolute clusterfuck that was their magnum opus. Looking back now, the series could have actually done better rather than just being restricted to its child demographic. It would have been better as a book first, if you ask me.

I get where Zuko's coming from. My brother is an ass who started dating by best friend when I asked him not to and then he cheated on my best friend with my other best friend. I really want to just stop talking to him forever but part of me is still hoping that the part of him that was once my friend whom I told everything to is still in there deep down and that I can save him from himself

I've got a great speech for zuko, it goes like this.
Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago the four nations lived in peace but everything changed when my grandfather, Firelord Sozin attacked. Only the Avatar. master of all four elements could save the people but when the world needed an Avatar most, he got frozen in a giant block of ice. Exactly one year ago, it was one hundred years since the disappearance of the avatar and many people started to believe that the avatar cycle had been broken but Waterbending Master Katara and her brother Sokka discovered the new avatar, an Air Nomad named Aang. After leaving the Southern Water Tribe, with me hot on their tales, the avatar learned waterbending from Masters Katara and Pakku, Earthbending from Sifu Toph, and Fire bending from me. Recently we went up against Fatherlord Ozai on the day of Sozins Comet and Avatar Aang took away his bending. Now we must recover and restore trust between the nations, Thank You

While I disagree with your assessment of Maiko (and your characterization of Mai to an extent), I think you're spot on when it comes to why Kataang just doesn't work as written. Aang just mature enough for a real relationship. I could see Kataang if we had had more post Comet story so we could see her interact with Aang in a more mature capacity.
And as adults, Katara would feel very sidelined and lonely and useless with Aang. She wouldn't able to "be Katara" very well. I mostly love Zutara because while Maiko can be good for Zuko, Zuko makes Katara feel valued and useful and important. He would let her DO things.

Hi! I just finished in less than month this amazing trilogy you wrote. I'm gonna be pretty honest I started reading it because I wanted to read some steamy action between the drama llamas, but I fell in love again with the character development. It was real and credible, the insecurities, the pain and other emotional scars. I also wanted to tell you that I almost jeopardize my first week in grade school... That's how addicted I was to your writing! Also when I heard a dumbass being sexist I was just looking for a snack tray. To be fair, I also wished for my own common sense stick, that'll have been an awesome improvement for me and everyone around me, OK maybe not everyone around me, but I'll be more than happy to administrate some common sense here and there.
Finally I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed Katara's point of view, thank you for this awesome story.
PD. I also tried to make dumplings, but failed miserably. I couldn't stop myself, they seemed to enjoy them greatly.
Hugs and kisses all the way from Mexico.

I spent the first chapter laughing over the hilarity between Zuko and Jet. I am so glad I took a break from this story to read about Jet's adventures.
I am so saddened by Smellerbee's rejection of Zuko once she knows who he is since I thought their somewhat friendship in Jet's stalking story was really sweet. I liked how you wrote the Maiko breakup (and not just for the obvious reason).
YES! They finally kissed (like 100 chapters later...) you wrote that whole scene really well.
I am a bit irritated that it's pretty much right after Mai and Zuko broke up but at the same time, I get it. Poor Mai though; I hope she never finds out their anniversary of sorts falls on the day of her breakup. I am excited to read about Mai and Jun though.

The 'when we have kids' was freaking adorable. I absolutely loved the end when they're up against the tree because it was reminiscent of the 'save you from the pirate' scene that we Zutarians love, and oh my God the 'it wasn't a scroll in his pants line '! I squealed so loudly in shock/fangirly love for that whole bit. I reaaaaaaaaallly wanted them to kiss, but at the same time I respect Katara for not doing so for all of the reasons mentioned. She is so much better than that. P.S. I loved the tidbit about Ursa's name being the fire password for the vault. Even though sometimes I curse how long your author's notes are (because I can't wait to read the next chapter) I also love hearing your opinions and insights.

THANK YOU FOR FINALLY GIVING AANG A WAKE UP CALL! I liked that he had it from multiple places; the straightforward and not unkind scolding from Hakoda was fantastic but there was also a part of me thst was so happy to hear Za Jei trashing Aang's decision uncensored as well. I really love the interactions between Katara and Azula; you write both the interactions and Azula's character so well.

Oh my gosh. You're Author's Note is nearly as long as your chapter.

Thank you so much for this wonderful story!

You portray the realtionship between Toph and her mother so well. I always suspected Toph favored her mother a little more. After all she probably spent the most time with her mom growing up. Such a lovely last scene between them. Poppy can see how beautiful Toph's bending can be but more importantly she appreciates it a little more because Toph likes it.
Can't wait to see more about Ty Lee and learning to be an airbender and of course more Zutara!
