Title: Embers
Author: Vathara
Fandom: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Warnings: Author does not use warnings; no major warnings needed.
Summary: Dragon's fire is not so easily extinguished; when Zuko rediscovers a lost firebending technique, shifting flames can shift the world... Follows 'Theft Absolute'.
Commentary: If fanfiction were sex, I would be the one moaning "Baby, cultural conflict me harder! Ah, yeah, actions-with-consequences just like that. . . ." Luckily, fanfiction is not sex, and I don't have to fight everyone else to read this fic over and over again. Everything that happens here builds naturally off the world and the characters, and it is beautiful. I'm almost not willing to say more than that, since part of the beauty is the surprise when you realise all the things you've been convinced of that simply were not there in canon.

I love when a fic has good OCs. This fic has the best OCs. I'd say I want fic just about them, but I really don't think anything else would manage to stand up to what Vathara's written already.

One more note: Even if you're not very familiar with A:TLA (which I still kind of am not, having seen only about four episodes in total) I'd suggest you read this fic. Not just suggest -- I would beg you to. Whatever your alley is, this is exactly up it.

I was going to post a wistful comment about wishing I was in this fandom, because I love Vathara's fics ... and then saw your last note and now I'm totally going to read it. She just writes so well!

"Baby, cultural conflict me harder! Ah, yeah, actions-with-consequences just like that. . . ."
And this line is a good one too. XD

Curse you evil temptress do you know how many hours I lost reading that fic and I had exams to study for arrrrgh
Thanks for reccing this. It really is that good. Halfway through I noticed that it´s a WIP and panicked (I looked at the wrong date and thought it wasn´t getting updated anymore, but fortunately I kept reading); you might have mentioned that.
