    Summary

    “There are few things more important in war than Honor,” Iroh said, guiding Zuko away from supply lines, away from civilians. “Do nothing to the enemy you cannot take, yourself.”

    “Isn’t it justified?” Zuko asked, repeating words he’d heard many times from his instructors in the past. “What Honor do they have?”

    Iroh smiled sadly. “It is never justified. Honor comes not from other people, Zuko, but from yourself. A man without honor…” He pats the young man’s shoulder. “Well. A man without honor, without moral, is nothing.”

    What honor is there in war? Zuko had wanted to ask. What purpose do our blood-stained hands have, now, when we are nothing? He crushed the whispers ruthlessly.

    The War is right.

    Father is right.

    (“My Loyalty belongs to my Fire Lord,” Ancient voices chanted, “My Loyalty, My Fire, My Life.)

    It had to be.

    (Or: How Prince Zuko slowly realized the world was more important than Ozai's approval, and how that revelation changed the war. Before Aang AU)

    Summary

    “You remember him,” Chit Sang sounded surprised.

    “I remember all of their names,” Zuko admitted. While he was on the ship, his father had sent him every death certificate from the 41st division. There was never any other note, no words from the Fire Lord, just a piece of paper with the name, age, and rank of the soldier who died. Zuko had kept every single one on his ship, reading over every single one and committing their names to his memory. He couldn’t stop them from dying, but they were what motivated him to keep moving, to get back his honor so that he could help prevent deaths like theirs.

    Chit Sang's brother fought in the 41st division. Unknowingly, Zuko had become a beacon of hope to those in the Fire Nation whose family had perished in the needless war, to the people who wished for a Fire Lord who will fight for their people instead of power. Chit Sang feels the need to let Zuko know this.

    Summary

    Literally.
