When you’re done being here and standing with me and singing with me, when you go on with the rest of your life, I just hope that you’ll remember it the way I remember it. I hope you’ll remember it well; when you need it on bad days, I hope it’s a good thing for you.

I don’t think Fire Lord Zuko gets enough appreciation as a fire lord okay

like listen pals

Zuko was fucking seventeen-years-old when he was coronated

SEVENTEEN

they threw that high schooler on the throne after one-hundred-years of war, backwards thinking, high tensions, political unrest, national security threats, and so much shit going on

he dodged assassins

he shut down the loyalists and rebels against him

he put up with those against him national and foreign

he dealt with his personal problems, abuse recovery, dysfunctional family, abusive father and sister

he wrote new peaceful legislations

he created a serene relationship with the other nations

he reconnected his people with the Spirit World and Avatar

he built tribute statues to those from other nations he cared for

he helped settle international crises involving the avatar and colonies

he kept his own people from rebelling

he kept foreigners and his own government from enacting or allowing war

he apologized to his people when he messed up

he gave eloquent beautiful speeches to his people that inspired them and gave them hope

he cared so fluently for all of his people and tried so hard to please them all and do his best for them– and also the world

HE CO-CREATED AN ENTIRE NATION OF PEACE AND INTERNATIONAL MIXING THAT HADN’T BEEN SEEN BEFORE

LIKE DAMN, ZUKO
