    Eventually Sokka realizes that Aang does not embody 'balance' the way an Avatar supposedly should. No, weirdly enough it's Zuko who does that instead.

    Summary

    Azulon’s father raised him to live decisively, deliberately, and dauntlessly. A good leader made choices, a great leader made decisions and went from there. Great leaders did not look back at their past decisions and question what could’ve have been, they focused on what will be. Strength resided in dealing with the problems at hand, not stewing over the problems with which you already dealt, even if you no longer believed you made the best decision.

    On Azulon’s coronation day as the Crown Prince of the Fire Nation, two weeks after his eighteenth birthday, his father stood by his side above their people, where no one else could hear him:

    “It is impossible to live without regrets,” he said as he looked out on the large crowd gathered for the ceremony, “but you must only have regrets with which you can live.”

    Summary

    It took a long time for him to calm down, to stop screaming and thrashing and demanding to know just what exactly happened. Through his hysteria, Father managed to give a rushed sequence of events – bad information, an ambush, Earth benders, no one else in the mission survived and they did not think Lu Ten would either, except the boulder fell strangely, crushed his arm, but staved off enough bleeding to keep him alive until healers arrived, he was lucky. Not that Lu Ten felt lucky.

    Lu Ten survives, but his arm does not, leading to Zuko becoming his temporary scribe while he learns to write with his non-dominant hand; at the same time, he starts realizing family doesn't mean the same thing to everyone

    Summary

    “You dare suggest that I betray Iroh?” Fire Lord Azulon did not shout. “My first born? After the demise of his only beloved son?” The old man leaned back in his throne shaking his head, “You have made an irrevocable error here, today, Ozai. What man of honor, what brother, what Uncle, would use this tragedy, a death towards furthering our family’s sacred mission as you call it, for his own political,” He practically spat the word, “gain. No, no, Iroh has suffered enough, but you, my son, have been far too coddled.”
    Zuko felt Father’s tension, but his stomach truly dropped when he saw Azula’s own worry, clear as day on her perfect actress face.
    “You need to be taught a lesson,” Fire Lord Azulon decided. “You must, too, suffer the pain of losing your first born.”

    Fire Lord Azulon, to punish Ozai, gives Zuko to Iroh
