zuko honor

I don't think a lot of people get this. Iroh's problem was that he lost his son. So he helped Zuko, who had been banished by his father, get his life back. The right life. By doing this Iroh got a second chance at being a father.

Aries - Are you so busy fighting you cannot see your own ship has set sail?

Taurus - Sick of tea? That’s like being sick of breathing!

Gemini - Destiny is a funny thing. You never know how things are going to work out. But if you keep an open mind and an open heart, I promise you will find your own destiny someday.

Cancer - Protection and power are overrated. I think you are very wise to choose happiness and love.

Leo - Be careful what you wish for. History is not always kind to its subjects.

Virgo - Life happens wherever you are, whether you make it or not.

Libra - It’s time for you to look inward and start asking yourself the big question: who are you and what do YOU want?

Scorpio - There’s nothing wrong with a life of peace and prosperity. I suggest you think about what it is that you want from your life, and why.

Sagittarius - Sometimes life is like this dark tunnel, you can’t always see the light at the end of the tunnel, but if you just keep moving, you will come to a better place.

Capricorn - A man needs his rest.

Aquarius - While it is always best to believe in one’s self, a little help from others can be a great blessing.

Pisces - You must never give into despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.

I found a gif with this on it and I almost started crying. Countdown to the Comet was when Nicktoons ran every episode for three days. I remember watching this. I remember being eight years old and waiting for this. I remember the countdown ticking down to five minutes. I remember seeing Zuko and Iroh’s reunion for the first time and my mom trying to hide the fact that she was crying. This brought up so many emotions because it put me back at an almost exact time. I can’t tell you how much I want to watch this like this again. Not knowing how Aang will master the elements, learning along with Zuko about the White Lotus, being flabbergasted at who Bumi really was, hanging off the edge of my seat when you hear Jet’s voice on the ferry, not knowing that Pakku and Kanna were in love, wondering how Zuko got his scar, watching Katara take down Hama, realizing who Suki was at the same time as Sokka on the docks, watching Zuko’s redemption arc, meeting Toph, watching Katara’s power grow, learning about Kya and Lu Ten, not knowing what black snow means, hating book one Zuko. Rewatching this reminds me how many great moments and plot twists and cliff hangers I’ll never get to experience again. I want to fall in love with it again.

  • Zuko on a date: What is your home like?
  • Them: It was lovely until some douchebag with a ponytail burned it down.
  • Zuko stuffing his honor in his purse: That's rough, buddy.
Zuko

So you know how the ponytail is a sign of honor in Chinese culture (and hence, the Fire Nation)? So, in Book 1 of ATLA, Zuko always had a ponytail (meaning he was always trying to reclaim his honor), but in Book 2, he never wore a ponytail (meaning he realized that he could never reclaim it). But in Book 3, when he was back home as the Fire Prince, he wore it again, because he thought he reclaimed it, yet when he left the Fire Nation and joined Team Avatar, he never had a ponytail, because he was trying to reclaim it the right way. Finally, in his coronation scene, he was wearing it again, leaving the viewers knowing that he finally DID reclaim his honor in the right way.
