Love works at destroying all one's defenses. Mai's finding that out now, and Zuko too.

I don't think one could ever be prepared for such a meeting. How many times must they have imagined it in their heads over three years, played it out movement by movement, different variations and outcomes? The real is never quite the same. It's better, hurts more. heals more.

Azula is deliciously cruel. Is she in for a surprise.

I love how Mai and Zuko both resist the easy way out, neither wanting to hurt the other, both compelled to examine their lost love, see exactly what three years have done. It takes courage and they both have plenty of that.

Well done!

P.S. Looks as though you have been inspired and busy.

I love how you explore and explode a scene. There could be so much going on in mere seconds and you capture it so beautifuly with this pair.
