This was a gift art that you may have seen on Tumbr. If you feel like reblogging it, it's posted here: [link]

In which Zuko spends his well-deserved retirement gallivanting about the Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom on an extended field trip with his wife, sampling (and occasionally critiquing) different tea shop offerings, watching a variety of wonderful, revoltingly-colored sunsets, correcting the stances of bandits who propose to mug them, and generally being themselves free of all political pressures or expectations.

(Mai’s wondering if she should tell him that that’s actually his cup of soy sauce he’s about to drink.)

I love the idea of them old...people don't stay young and beautiful forever, but they do stay in love! Nice work.

Oh my gosh. He's like Uncle Iroh! Aww. Did you know that the staff working on The Legend of Korra named Mako after the voice actor who played Uncle Iroh? He died before the show aired so they gave the character his name in memory of his life and work.

If it's possible for this to be more perfect, I am blissfully unaware as to how that could happen :)

how could you confuse soy sauce for tea?
xcgirl08's avatar
Because at traditional restaurants it is sometimes served in small, porcelain cups which resemble teacups. :)

I approve of this even though Mai and Zuko don't stay together. But the best artwork is never canon XD

Yeah, she dumped him again in part 2, plus Bryke stated in an interview that Mai and Zuko would not be staying together. XP
