    Summary

    “It’s a piece of history,” He argued and she was, as always, shocked at the rolling gravel that flowed quietly from his mouth, “We must preserve it.”
    And Mae, who’d spent hours scrubbing the ghost of bloodied fingerprints from her brushes and days willing the scratch of pen to paper to drown out the sound of the Fire Princess's wailing; had looked at the child clutching ruined parchment to his chest and suddenly understood like a punch to the jaw why Prince Iroh had to be physically restrained from murdering his brother in cold blood.

    Or

    The early days of Firelord Zuko's reign as described by Royal Stenographer Mae.

    Summary

    He moves, and she flinches.

    He sits on the floor in front of her, legs crossed carefully, hands in his lap. He looks up at her, and only then does she avert her eyes.

    Summary

    Zuko doesn’t know how Azula's doctors already seem to understand what their childhoods were like, and how they seem so prepared to house and treat a dangerous firebender. He doesn’t know why they aren’t afraid of him or her, why they even agreed to come here. He doesn’t understand how Uncle even knew who to contact for help, and how he set everything up so quickly.

    Uncle looks resigned, when he’s asked about it, which makes Zuko nervous.

    “These were not quickly made arrangements,” he admits. “I spent a great deal of time when I was traveling with the White Lotus looking into how one could best help a war child who had been so indoctrinated and hurt. I wrote to quite a few people, and have been in contact with the doctors treating Azula for some time.”

    Zuko stares back at Uncle in confusion.

    “I don’t understand. You knew she would go mad?”

    Uncle sighs. He puts his tea down on the table between them, and looks Zuko in the eye as he answers.

    “No, Fire Lord Zuko. These arrangements were not made for her. They were made for you.”

    *******

    Couldn't stop thinking about how Iroh must have been planning on having to "deal with" Zuko after the war.
