    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

    I have so desperately wanted fanfic about post-war Katara being her firebrand idealistic self, and not Aang's passive trophy. I would happily read a million words of this story.

    The pairing worked for me, which it doesn't always. I am wary of both Katara/Aang and Katara/Zuko because I too often find them erasing Katara-the-person in favor of Which Boy Gets The Girl-Prize, but this was emphatically Katara's story, and her political partnership with Zuko was a believable foundation for an eventual romance. (No demonizing of Mai, which I appreciated.)
