"Even the worst father in the history of fathers

he is still my father after all...

because his blood is in my body"


------------------------------------------

I was those kind of "want to marry with my father" type of girl when I was little. I admire him so much and thought his is great, but gradually things somehow went to opposite.

I had a very delicate and complex relationship with him for a period of time, and we barely contact with each other for couple of years.

I just made a "father's day" call to him, prepared to listen to his "great speech" as always, but this time he said to me that he's tired and feel that his whole life has being pushed by everyone which made he lost himself and lost me.

I *break into tears*

Suddenly I realized how wrong I was, I thought my father is strong and defeatable, and it was his vainglory and ambitions cast me away, but he actually is not, he is a flesh man like everyone else who had weakness and depression inside, just buried too deep...

I wish time could go back, when he is still the almighty father and I am still the naive girl.

If you are experiencing a difficult relationship with your father now, don't be depressed, cus I believe you'll understand him one day, because his blood is in your body.

Really lovely image. Her character ended up tragically at the end of the 3rd season so to make an image like this showing how she was as a toddler is just poignant and heartfelt. Wonderful job with this.

"If you're saying I play favorites, you're wrong. I love both of my children equally."

[Flashback to that morning]

"I don't care for Zuko."

This makes me a bit sad because in "The Search" We learnt that he never loved Ursa, Zuko or even Azula and he used Ursa as a brew mare and Zuko and Azula as subordinates

It would of been nice to see that he does care forsomeone in his family but the comic showed us that he has no love for anyone but himself.

I think Ursa even said he doesn't even have love in his heart for even himself. I like to believe at one point he was a different man and there family was a family, I feel like Ozai's descent into the man he ended up was a slow fade that started when he was a child, getting worse and worse the more his father refused to acknowledge him. Which is probably why Ozai can't sympathize with anyone who just receives love/praise without working for it since he had to work for everything, similar to Azula in that aspect. She had to work for her fathers love by always being perfect while Zuko received praise from Ursa for fail and generally doing nothing, from Azula's point of view.

Unconditional love is something Ozai and Azula will never, sadly, understand.

And I think Zuko is glad Ursa wrote that fake letter to Ozai about Zuko, she basically saved him from being sucked into Ozai's twisted ways, or else he would have suffered the same fate as Azula.

Yeah things really did turn out for the best for Zuko, well besides being burned. He escaped a dark fate thanks to the positive people in his life. If Azula was more open and less difficult she could have been saved too though to be fair no-one was really fighting to save her like Iroh did for Zuko, she really was alone unless you count Ozai and I don't think he really counts lel. I love the complexity of Avatar characters especially the fire nation royal family makes for some good story telling drama and character development.

Yeah, and no one was able to save Azula because she pushed everyone with her cruelty and how horrible she is to people, because of that no one was able to get close to Azula. Me to, a great story.

Yep, I wonder if she'll ever be "better" in the future. I know currently (Spoilers ahead! ) she doesn't want to kill Zuko and take the throne anymore so that's something XD.

Which is so tragic...it's so strange how Iroh and Ozai are siblings. They are complete opposites; Iroh is so kind and loving to others, while Ozai is cold and too busy loving himself.

:iconwhitepedal25:
WhitePedal25 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2017
It's like Zuko and Azula, because both Iroh and Zuko are the first borns and are to be Firelords while Azula and Ozai are second borns who are jealous of their siblings.

Right...I guess we just bad parenting to blame?? Also, come to think of it, both the firstborns were the favorite of the more "important" parent; Iroh by his father Azulon, Zuko by his mother Ursa. 
Reply
:iconwhitepedal25:
WhitePedal25 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2017
Yep, of course with Ursa and Azula, Ursa had to scold Azula and discipline her a lot because of Azula's behavior and how she treated people and she would never command Azula to kill her first born like Azulon did with Ozai. With Ursa she wanted her kids to bond and wanted to be close to Azula but Azula looked down on her mother and brother for being 'weak' as her father describes.

Not only that, she kept choosing her father over Ursa.

I think it's because she's so naturally like her father that she constantly chose her father over her mother, although she was probably craving more for her mother's affections, seeing as she was always jealous of Zuko, because Ursa's love towards her children was genuine while Ozai's wasn't.

First and last picture where I don't hate Ozai.
I used to not like Azula, until rather recently. Now, she's my favorite character.
On the other hand, I used to be indifferent to Ozai. Now I despise him.

Actually I don't like both of them. I just love Aang and Co. too much to like Ozai or Azula even a little bit.
But what a turn from not liking Azula to have her as favourite character. :D

In the Promise comic, we see a rather sweet moment between Ozai and Zuko too. 
Ozai does have a good side, we just rarely saw it.

It would have been awesome if she secretly had children and they showed up in Korra demanding their right to the throne, leading to a Fire Nation civil war.:) (Smile)
