    Summary

    As a tenured professor of psychology at Sisheng University, Chu Wanning understood dreams to be a meaningless byproduct of the mind’s unconscious data analysis. The human brain needed to sift through the stimuli of the day, memory by memory, piece by piece, in order to function. And so, he always thought that dreams were evanescent. Unimportant. Not to be read into.

    That was until he started having a rather perplexing recurring nightmare.

    Summary

    "At the beginning, Dick thinks he deserves it.

    It’s why he surrendered himself to the police. Why he joined the mob. Why he accepted Deathstroke’s offer to train his daughter and become Renegade.

    Then things went sour, and really, Dick should have seen it coming. He has always known, in the back of his mind, that Slade’s interest in him is not strictly platonic."

     

    OR: Dick is not doing well. Slade takes avantage. Rose doesn't know how to help.

    Summary

    Zuko doesn’t know how Azula's doctors already seem to understand what their childhoods were like, and how they seem so prepared to house and treat a dangerous firebender. He doesn’t know why they aren’t afraid of him or her, why they even agreed to come here. He doesn’t understand how Uncle even knew who to contact for help, and how he set everything up so quickly.

    Uncle looks resigned, when he’s asked about it, which makes Zuko nervous.

    “These were not quickly made arrangements,” he admits. “I spent a great deal of time when I was traveling with the White Lotus looking into how one could best help a war child who had been so indoctrinated and hurt. I wrote to quite a few people, and have been in contact with the doctors treating Azula for some time.”

    Zuko stares back at Uncle in confusion.

    “I don’t understand. You knew she would go mad?”

    Uncle sighs. He puts his tea down on the table between them, and looks Zuko in the eye as he answers.

    “No, Fire Lord Zuko. These arrangements were not made for her. They were made for you.”

    *******

    Couldn't stop thinking about how Iroh must have been planning on having to "deal with" Zuko after the war.
