zuko is the best at relationship advice

Little Gifts

Zuko blinked dumbly as he looked down at Katara. She shifted from one foot to the other, avoiding looking in his eyes as she found a pebble and gave it a light kick. Zuko tried to focus on that pebble as he collected his thoughts, kept his eyes on it as it bounced next to a group of identical pebbles. Try as he might, he couldn’t force his mind to form coherent sentences. When he looked at her again, her head was still down, but he could see beautiful blue eyes looking at him through dark lashes, and already he could feel the heat in his cheeks. He rubbed the back of his head nervously. 

“For me?”

OH MY FUCKING GOD ARE YOU STUPID?! MAI WAS LITERALLY FUCKING MANIPULATED BY ZUKO WHO TOOK HER FOR GRANTED LIED AND KEPT SECRETS FROM HER. SHE DID NITHING WRONG YOU FUCKING STUPID CHILD. (well i mean, you also ship makorra so,,,)

Where, bitch, where?

When Zuko was talking about how scared and nervous he was about going back home to a father and country that didn’t want him for three years, and Mai being like “stfu i only asked if you were cold?”

When Zuko was genuinely hurt about not being invited to a war meeting with his father, sister, and important generals, when he finally felt sure that that he was important to his father, and instead of comforting him Mai was like, “who cares, i don’t, let’s fuck?”

AND THEN she said “don’t you remember what happened at the last war meeting you went to?” referring to how is father burned him and banished him LIKE DO YOU REALLY NOT UNDERSTAND HOW FUCKED UP THAT IS??

And then when Zuko is finally on the throne, it seems like the world is heading in a right direction, he realized he had no idea what the fuck he was doing, and Mai offered no words of advice, she never once attempted to work it out with him, when his uncle and best friends were away she was all he had and she did nothing. He was forced to visit his father because he had no other choice because HE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO

So fuck you, Mai never once tried to understand Zuko, never. And Zuko is not someone who manipulates people

I love Mai as a character, I really do, but her relationship with Zuko is way toxic. Zuko deserves someone who actually knows how to love him.
