Dear Fire Lord Ozai,

After Zhao's untimely demise, the crew unearthed a package of letters that we very much enjoyed. These letters contained heated conversations between yourself and Admiral Zhao, as well as letters sent anonymously to your son. The letters are in the order of sent and received for your, uh, convenience. We hope you enjoy these as much as we did; it really cheered us up after our defeat at the North Pole.

Sincerely, (and with much love) the crew (for we fear to put our names down)


Sent: Dear Fire Lord Ozai,

Ever since I left you and set out on my way, I can't stop picturing your face. You're in my dreams every night, and I don't know how to handle this. How am I supposed to do my job if I can't stop thinking about you?

I am more concerned that you do not share the same feelings for me as I do for you. It's getting late, and I must send this letter before we leave port. Hopefully, I can expect one back. You know our next destination, so locating us shouldn't be a problem.

Love, Zhao


Received: Dear Zhao,

I haven't forgotten you. Ever since my wife, Ursa, abandoned me at the most important time of my life you've been there to help me along. How can I forget all the kind things you've done for me, and all you've helped me with? I hope to see you again soon, so hurry up and come back. I'll be waiting.

Love, your Oh-oh


Sent: Dear Fire Lord Ozai,

I remember the day I gave you that nickname. It's my favorite memory of all. We were sitting beneath the trees, which had just begun to bud, and it began to rain. You covered me with your cloak, and together we sat, letting ourselves be drenched in the sky's tears. That's when I first turned to you and called you my Oh-oh. Do you remember?

Love, Zhao


Received: Dear Zhao,

Of course I remember! I think of that all the time! But I'm afraid that our relationship can only be professional.

From, Fire Lord Ozai


Sent: Dear "Fire Lord Ozai,"

I'm enraged that you could say such a thing! I thought we had something special going on! This is certainly a different attitude then you showed me before I left. Don't you remember that one time, in your room…

But if it's "strictly professional" I guess I can't remind you of that.

Sincerely, Just Zhao


Received: Dear Zao-zao,

Forgive me, it's hard to deal with this. Let me make it up to you. I am promoting you to Admiral. With your attitude and great body, you shall make a wonderful Admiral.

Love, Oh-oh


Sent: Dear Oh-oh,

Thank you for the promotion, but an apology would have been sufficient. I have another target now, besides the Avatar, I hope you don't mind. The Blue Spirit. Heard of him?

Love, Zao-zao


Received: Dear Admiral Zhao,

Yes, I've heard of him, and I wish you luck. Please keep me informed of everything. As of my news, I have nothing to report but a dream I had. We were in the rain, just like that memory you wrote me about a few weeks back. I hope one day, we can re-live it.

Love, Ozai


Sent: Dear Prince Zuko,

Why do you always show up where I am? Are you tracking me?

Signed, Anonymous


Received: Dear Anonymous,

It was torture trying to find someone who could deliver this letter to you. They wouldn't tell me who you were, but I expect you're the Avatar. And know that I will never give up on trying to capture you. Never.

Signed, Prince Zuko of the Fire Nation


Sent: Dear Prince Zuko,

I am not the Avatar. But I have been watching you for quite some time. You are almost like your father. Skill, perseverance, muscle. You have it all. I applaud you.

Signed, Anonymous


Received: Dear Anonymous,

Once again, if you would just come out with who you are it wouldn't take me so long to reply. I still believe you are the Avatar, for he is the only one I track. If you are not he, then stop this infernal letter-sending at once! You are making me write, and wasting the time I could use to capture my prize!

Signed, Prince Zuko


Received: Dear Zao-zao,

It was my birthday yesterday, have you forgotten? I did not receive a letter from you. No matter, you must be busy. I have written a poem, and I hope you do enjoy it.

Fire is red
Water is blue
I can't stand
Being separate from you

Do you like it?

Love, Oh-oh


Sent: Dear Fire Lord Ozai,

I enjoyed the poem, yes. But being separate from you has clogged my thoughts and feeling for my Oh-oh. I'm afraid we are growing more distant.

From, Zhao


Received: Dear Zhao,

Do my eyes deceive me? Tell me it isn't true, what you've written! What about all the times we've spent together? What about our promise to always love one another? My heart aches from the thought of no longer being connected to you through love. Is there someone else?

Still yours, Oh-oh


Sent: Dear Fire Lord Ozai,

Yes, I have found someone else.

From, Admiral Zhao


Received: Dear Zhao,

Is that all you write now? Hear me, I will win you back! Even if it means disposing of the one who has so treacherously torn you from my arms!

From, Ozai


Sent: Dear Prince Zuko,

You are the Blue Spirit, are you not? Well, that only makes my love for you stronger. I'm sorry to say I've given up on my other love to pursue you. Tell me you'll be mine.

Love, Zao-zao


Received: Dear "Zao-zao"

Who the hell are you?

Leave me crap alone, and stop harassing me.

Signed, Prince Zuko


Sent: Dear Prince Zuko,

You shall pay dearly for those words. Mark mine, I will have my revenge.

Signed, Zao-zao


Received: Dear Zao-zao

You're an ass. I'm not afraid of you. Take your best damn shot.

Signed, Prince Zuko


Sent: Dear Zuzu,

Trust me. I will.

Love, your not-so-secret admirer, Zao-zao


Sent to crew as a reply to their package:

Dear crew,

Those are private! How dare you look at them! I am sending soldiers to take care of the issue, meaning you, and I hope you suffer greatly for this.

From, your worst enemy, Fire Lord Ozai


Published one month later:

To whom it may concern,

The crew which had once served under Admiral Zhao (now deceased) has been tragically lost. An accident occured where they were traveling by boat along a rocky mountain range. Under unexplainable happenings, a chunk of rock seperated from the side of the mountain, falling and killing, much to Fire Lord Ozai's dissapointment, the entire crew. When interviewed, Fire Lord Ozai had this to say:

"What an unfortunate accident. Very sad, yes indeed."

Everyone is welcome to attend the funeral service which will be held in their honor. Thank you.


Author's Note: Awww...OzaixZhao. We all know that's why he was promoted. And thanks Shay for the poem idea.
