Spirits are dangerous, powerful, and unpredictable. That's why the Avatar acts a bridge between the worlds. That's why the barrier is respected. And why deals in Spirit Tales always, always go wrong. But the fools in Mother's tales were weak, and Father demands perfection. And the way to achieve perfection is to do it over until you get it right.
The Great Spirits rarely interfere. They are the laws of the world, the harmonizing balance that exists every day, in every place. So long as even the chance of the Avatar succeeding remains, they are content to watch. But a deal between a powerful bender and an ancient spirit is a threat to their harmony they cannot ignore.
But fate has aligned in their favor. Loopholes and old powers combined allow them to to give balance a chance. And while the dealmaker starts her second chance on the morning of the Winter Solstice, with the Avatar's help her opponent starts his in the evening.
Now Zuko just has to convince Uncle Iroh to believe him, the Gaang to trust him, and his crew that he’s not possessed so that he can help Aang save the World, the Fire Nation, and his sister from the consequences of her actions.

"I don’t know how this happened. I don’t yet know why. But this is definitely Anakin’s fault."
Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jedi Master, Exile, and now Force Ghost, was pleased with the way things had turned out. The Sith were dead. His padawan had returned to the Light. And Luke Skywalker was beginning to lay the foundation for his new Jedi Order. And while Luke, Leia, Han, and the Rebellion cleaned up the last traces of the Empire on the physical plane, he and Anakin would devote the next stage of their afterlives to repairing the damage Sidious and his ilk wrought on the Force itself.
At least, that was the plan.
After a disaster on the cosmic scale that Obi-Wan is still trying to wrap his mind around, he finds himself back in the early days of the Clone Wars, Commander Cody loyally at his side, Anakin at his back, and Sidious plotting against the Jedi at every turn. He's been given an unasked for chance to do everything over again. And with the Force as his ally, he intends to set the galaxy on a brighter path than the one it's currently on.
