At the end of Sozin's comet part 4, when Zuko asked Ozai "Where's my mother?", I knew he would not have an immediate answer. This eluded to a possible continuation of the series, or at least another show....but this was not to be. Happily, Dark Horse had picked up the reins and led us onto the further adventures of our favorite gaang. After years of wondering and waiting, we are finally able to embark on yet another life-changing field trip with Zuko-actually it's Azula's turn-to quell that question that has burned in our minds for so long.
for anyone who hasn't read this yet, my apologies if I am revealing anything too soon, this is not a review, just some things I wanted to point out.
As a long time reader of comic books and graphic novels, I am accustomed to story twists, alternate endings, character deviation - so in this book i'm actually expecting this. It's not enough to just ask where his mother is, or what "happened" to her, this brings up an opportunity to take a deeper look at Zuko, Azula, and the royal family, otherwise "the Search" would end up a pretty short story. In part one, we see a nice backstory...
Promise that you’ll end my life should I become like dad;
Promise you will take me down if I become so bad.
Cancer has run in families since before my incarnation;
An avatar must vow to curtail malignant transformation!
For the crimes of my ancestors, I would gladly atone:
The sins of my forefathers should burden me alone
But it all seems too much for a teenaged firelord to bear,
Though involving anyone else would truly seem unfair;
I have a MAJOR obsession with Zuko, and anime, but mostly Zuko. I'm not talking about what most people would think of a Zuko obsession like: watching him alot. No, I watch him EVERY DAY. he only pics on my cell are of Zuko, and the videos I record on my cell are of-guess who-ZUKO! He's just soooo hot. And if my obseesion wasn't bad enough, here's more: the only pics on my laptop r of him, I draw him every day(pretty well, actually), I dream about him every night. (p.s. I'm a very mentally active person, which means I think A LOT, and I somehow can control my dreams whenever I enter them), I...
I was walking home one day. I hurried past the bus stop. I was hurrying because my favorite show was going to be on soon. It was going to be on until 12:30am tonight. The show I'm going to be watching Avatar:The Last Airbender.
I love that show so much! I wish I could be on the show. I really wish the world was the show. As I got home, I threw my backpack on the floor. My mom groaned. "How many times do I have to tell you to stop throwing your stuff on the floor?" she asked, looking at me seriously. I sighed. I dragged my backpack into my room. "Now to turn on my...
"Ah"! Katara screamed, Katara had another nightmare for the fifth night in a row the same one about her and Zuko kissing and Zuko getting killed by Mai. She went to a quiet place to think. That happened to be the same quiet place Zuko went to think. "Hi Zuko". Katara said. "Hey" he said. "What are you doing up"? Zuko asked. "I had a nother nightmare". Katara said. "Me too,what was yours about?" Zuko asked. "Umm, about you and me...kissing and Mai killing you". Katara said in a wishper. "Really"? Zuko asked. "Uh huh". Katara said still in a wishper. "I had the same dream". Zuko said....
Katara was breathless. She was in Zuko's arms in the fire Nation palace. He was basically speaking words of poetry to her like "Katara you are my life saver" and "Katara you are my heart, my all". Katara I Love you he said. Zuko I lov... she was about to say then the whole room filled with fire and you could feel the hate in the room Mai appeared and scowled at Katara. Katara tried to waterbend but it wouldn't work. Mai shot a blade at her. She pushed Zuko out of the way, and right when it was about to hit her face Zuko jumped in front of Katara.Then she woke up and saw Zuko sleeping on...
"Oh Zuko", Katara said holding him in her arms.Zuko smiling cheek to cheek kissed her passionately.Katara, "I lov..." ,but before he could finish the clouds turned black there was fire everywhere then Aang appread in the Avatar state.Lookin angrier, than ever shot lighting at Zuko. Zuko pushes Katara out of the way.Right before the lighting hit's his face he woke up screaming in the Firelords old house in a cold sweat.Everyone woke up and ran to where he was.Zuko,Sokka said holding his sowrd."What's wrong are we under attack?!?" "No!" said Zuko "I just had a nightmare." "What about" Aang...
