    Summary

    It was difficult to imagine Princess Ursa, a woman who moved with gentleness and grace, whose soft, shy smile lit up like a pearl under the moon, who delighted in a simple theatre play, doing anything as unseemly as murder. She sat poised and prim, offering him a sweet jasmine tea with a steady hand that had long since been washed any trace of blood.

    'It is wonderful to see you again, Iroh. I would love to catch up.'

    Twelve Imperial Firebenders guard the entrances to her quarters. They are comfortable, full of plush furnishings. It doesn't look like a prison cell. If Iroh hadn't just returned from the healer's ward where what remained of his brother lay, he wouldn't think this was a prison cell at all.

    --

    [A rewritten Ursa backstory, told through the various hands that shaped her, leading up to one key difference: she doesn't leave her children behind, this time.]

    Summary

    AU: Lu Ten never died at Ba Sing Se, and Fire Lord Iroh rules the nation with an iron fist. Zuko is merely the son of the second prince, overlooked by his more talented younger sister and can only dream of the day when he will be finally allowed to prove himself in battle. When Lu Ten returns, triumphant, with the Avatar and his Water Tribe companions in chains, Zuko is put in charge of their imprisonment. But he soon learns that things are not what they seem with both the child Avatar and within his own family. And soon, Zuko will have a decision to make. How much good can one overlooked nephew to the throne do?
