    Summary

    It doesn’t take long for the rumors to start.

    The Fire Nation prides itself on its civilization. It isn’t like the other, lesser, nations who throw their children away by sending them into war. Those uncultured and unfeeling savages who are destroying their own future faster than the Fire Nation can save them from themselves.

    Every Fire Nation child goes to school. They learn reading and writing, the illustrious history of their country, and what will be expected of them as proper, upstanding Fire Nation citizens. They are to be protected, because children are the future glory of the nation.

    The crown prince is thirteen when his father burns his face in front of an audience of hundreds.

    Summary

    For his first thirteen years, Zuko was raised in a palace. And yet somehow, it's the three years outside the Fire Nation that seem to count more – at least to the palace staff, who act like he's been raised by fox-wolves.

    At first, this only annoys Zuko.

    Until he begins to think that the Fire Nation needs more than a formerly-banished prince.
