....*speechless for a moment*

I always forget just how much I LOVE your writing. And then I read gems like this and remember and have to wipe the drool away.

*shifts impatiently* So....when's the next post going up? *big puppy-dog eyes*

Thank you! I'm very glad you enjoyed the "preview."

I've had this on the back burner for so long it feels good to finally be finishing it up.

I am aiming to get the next bit up tomorrow.

Wow....really great prologue. I like your insight on Mai's mom and how her being from a family of noble blood but no property/money affected how she raised Mai. I felt that Mai, Zuko, and Iroh were completely in character. I can't wait to read more!

Thank you! I'm glad you like it.

It makes Mai's mother more interesting to me if she has a reason to be so worried about her (and her family's) social position, other than it just being a character quirk.

I really can't stop reading this fic. I've read it three times through, I think--excellent, excellent work! It's got all my favorites... Banished Zuko, Mai, Maiko, Iroh being awesome, cuddling, humor (Mai's sarcasm is the greatest) and bittersweetness (if that is, indeed a word).

Just wonderful.

Thank you very much! I'm glad it's held up on re-reading. :)

Also, hee at your icon.

OMG I cant believe I didn’t pick this up sooner!

ARRRGH, my heart bleeds for Mai! I have an all-too-socially-aware mother like that, and it freaking sucks. Awwwww, poor Mai….. *cuddles her

And its crazy amazing how intensely you write her emotions, but at the same time she's still the deadpan poker faced girl from canon. awesome.

and wow, you wrote the yearning so realistically, it completely transported me back to the time i was a teen and in love with a guy i couldnt have...

wow, again, wow.

uncle is cute too, his conversation with zuko is like, them in a nutshell. XD XD



Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D

I tend to think that if Mai were truly emotionless, and not severely emotionally repressed, Zuko would have no interest in her. I also don't think an emotionless girl would be able to tolerate or understand Zuko, either.

i think you did the "severely emotionally repressed" part very well, which is why it was so powerful and so in character. I dont doubt that she is that way, but it's not an easy state to portray, and you did it very convincingly. :)
