    Summary

    “If he is--," Zuko swallows thickly, unable to say his sister’s name. "Why would she ever do this to him? Why would she abandon him like this? How could she..." Zuko trails off.

    Mai squeezes his hand, rests her head on his shoulder. She sniffs. "Azula would do this if her child couldn’t bend.”

    ***

    Summary

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.
    (But most will agree that it happens
    during Bolin's office hour demise.)

    - Robert Frost, probably

    Summary

    The first time it happens, Wu is tipsy and probably riding high off having drinks bought for him by admirers. The next time it happens, it's entirely Mako's fault.

    After that, it gets complicated.

    Or: Over the course of 108,000 words, we make the case that Wuko was canon the whole time.

    Summary

    “My fire… used to be blue. It was fueled by rage and anger.” At that, Azula made blue flames dance between her fingers. “But your father… He saved me. Zuko believed in me when everyone else had lost faith, he trusted me and took me in, even after all my errors. One day… he showed me the true source of firebending; he took me to learn from the dragons. And I did learn, Izumi. I truly did.”

    OR

    The five times Izumi made the most powerful firebender alive (also known as Auntie Azula) cry.
