    Summary

    "Izumi is eight days old, and already I…I know that if anything happened to her, I’d…I don’t know how I’d…” Zuko pauses, and then looks toward Iroh with as much hurt in his eyes as when he was a child of thirteen. “Uncle, your son died.

    Astute, poignant, beautifully painful and hopeful at once.

    Wonderful Toph tone and verbal characterization. Sokka being a sweetheart in a very canon-appropriate way.

    Summary

    They say that the devil is in the detail. Mission reports, protocol, the chain of command… all minor details in a story so much larger than either one of them could possibly fathom.
    Just minor details.

    Post-synthesis, canon-compliant (hence, character death). Garrus watched Hackett speak this second time, his tone gruff, military parade-rest a second skin like armor, describing Anderson's accomplishments, and remembered Wrex nodding to him down in the cargo hold when he showed up, just walking out of Ash's memorial. Wrex hadn't even pretended to show (not willing to feign concern when he had none), and the two of them had gone about their respective tasks in silence.
