Reminder again that Azula never committed treason, while Zuko, Iroh, Ozai, and Ursa all did(albeit for different reasons in each case).

Hey there deaf/HOH Zuko fans! Here’s a little snippet I wrote during my planning period where Zuko and Iroh use sign language to communicate. (Dialogue in italics is signed.)
This is probably going to be part of one of Iroh’s flashbacks in Izumiverse 4 — Zuko and Iroh find Jet in Lake Laogai.
Warning: major character death (Jet) under the cut
“What is it?” Iroh signs, trying to peer over Zuko’s shoulder to see beyond the sewer grate.
Zuko makes the sign they came up with for Jet. He looks back through the grate and signs “He looks hurt.”
Iroh doesn’t respond.
“We should help him,” Zuko signs, his eyes pleading.
Iroh shakes his head. “We have to go, Prince Zuko.”
Zuko looks back again and signs emphatically, “There has to be something we can do—”
“There is nothing we can do to help him now,” Iroh interrupts.
Iroh takes a step closer. Through the sewer grate he sees the boy in his friend’s arms, clutching her as she weeps over him. He witnesses the moment that Jet’s grip on his friend’s arm slackens and his head lolls back. The girl wails, and her anguish tears through Iroh the way an iceberg rips holes in steel ships.
Zuko stifles a cry with his gloved hand. A few tears roll down his cheek.
“We should go,” Iroh says aloud. He places a gentle hand on Zuko’s shoulder to turn him away.
Zuko doesn’t move. Instead he continues watching as the other boy abandons his guard post to hold the girl while she cries.
“Nephew, we have to go,” Iroh insists.
Zuko finally nods and follows Iroh down the dim corridor.
Iroh wishes he could chalk his nephew’s grief up to the trauma of seeing a boy his age die for the first time. But he thinks of the moment he wasn’t supposed to witness, and the realization that his nephew is not like other men, and he knows the heartbreak Zuko must be feeling at this loss.
Iroh isn’t sure what makes him feel more guilty: the fact that he can’t comfort Zuko without revealing what he knows, or the relief that if a young boy had to die, at least it wasn’t his nephew.

very graphic visual of Lu-Tens last moments.
the footage shows, how prince Lu-Ten son of Iroh second in line.
has to fight off on his own, two small hatchlings, both enraged by their pray being stolen.
and you can clearly see, how his father, the general, dragon of the west crown prince Iroh, JUST SITS ON THE SIDELINES SIPPING HIS TEA AND LAUGHING HIS BELLY OF!

Hi, Zuko-always-lies! I read your post on how Iroh deliberately manipulated Zuko to turn good. Since I read your post a question bugs me😅. Do you ever think Iroh's love for Zuko was also conditional i.e Zuko turning good or (Zuko leaving up to Iroh's standards)? In a scenario where Aang defeats the Firelord Ozai with the help of white lotus and somehow they manage to defeat the fire siblings, how do you think the relationship between Zuko and Iroh would be? Will Iroh's treatment of Zuko be the same as that of his treatment of Azula?
So this is a difficult question to answer. Again, we do find a certain level of manipulation in the way that Iroh treats Zuko, and I think there's a certain level of hidden narcissism in Iroh's behavior in general. And again, Iroh ends the series by abandoning Zuko, so there's that. So it might be possible that Iroh completely abandons Zuko or treats him completely like Azula in that situation.
Iroh: I know how you must feel about my nephew. But believe me when I tell you there is good inside him. (places his hands on Sokka's shoulders in a pleading way)
Sokka: Good inside of him isn't enough. Why don't you come back when it's outside him too, okay?
But, as you can see, Iroh's favoritism is very deep. I think it's more likely that he'd ultimately write off Zuko's behavior as a "mistake" and ignore the harm Zuko has done, while still treating Azula like dirt. In fact, I think it would be likely that Iroh would ultimately blame Azula for Zuko "going bad" and treat her even worse. And yes, Team Avatar is likely to notice hypocrisy involved.
Funny enough, if Zuko never "redeems himself," it would be evident that he still needs guidance. Thus, ironically, I think it would be less likely that Iroh would abandon Zuko in that situation.

it’s so funny how iroh is always just like “oh don’t look at me I am but a stupid old man” and if anyone is like “um... no...... you’re the Dragon of the West” he’s like “what? that was , like, ages ago. six years ago, even. I’m stupid now. my brains turned to mush!” and then they just believe him and completely let their guard down. I love it

—It is important to draw wisdom from different places. If you take it from only one place it become rigid and stale. Understanding others, the other elements, the other nations, will help you become whole. It is the combination of the four elements in one person that makes the Avatar so powerful. But it can make you more powerful too.

I love how for most of The Boiling Rock Part 1 Zuko’s just going around like ‘you know who’s great? Uncle. I miss him a lot. He’s my favorite person and I will fight you for him” completely unprompted
what a soft kid, I love him so much

Zhao was Fire Lord Azulon’s illegitimate (semi-acknowledged) son
that’s why he was standing with Iroh and Azula at Zuko and Ozai’s Agni Kai (the family section)
that’s why Ozai kept promoting him despite Zhao not being all that special or talented (nepotism)
that’s why he came up with three new titles to give himself once he killed the moon: Zhao the Conqueror, Zhao the Moon Slayer, Zhao the Invincible. for comparison, Azulon was remembered at his funeral by two feats outside his tenure as Fire Lord: “You were our fearless leader in the Battle of Garsai. Our matchless conqueror of the Hu Xin Provinces.” (Zhao desperately wanted to not just match but surpass the level of fame and historical significance his royal father held)
that’s why he was always hating on Zuko (deep-seated resentment that Zuko got all the privilege that comes from being a legitimate heir but still fucked up in ways Zhao was sure he never would have if given the same opportunities. seething jealousy that despite it all, Zuko was still a prince and Zhao never would be)
i just think it would be fun (an added layer to every interaction Zhao has with Iroh and Zuko: the unspoken fact that he is their bastard brother/uncle.)
