I'd like to think Zuko screamed on top of a mountain when he learned of Aang's passing.

Yep. Toph fell down on the floor and cried, Zuko just got very quiet then vented his rage on a mountaintop (as he's been known to do on at least one prior occasion), Sokka refused to deal with it, and Katara just had a complete breakdown.  Losing Aang broke Suki's heart a little, but she was the one to keep them all together in the week immediately after he passed. She just kind of took over and looked after everybody while they were falling apart.

I'm not crazy!

...

I'm sanity-challenged.

Can I just say, greatest self-deprecating quote of all time?

The only thing I'm not looking forward to with a Katara/Zuko reunion in TLoK is that it wouldn't be Dante Basco and Mae Whitman. Those two and their ridiculous chemistry had a lot to do with my attraction to the ship, because it showed in the characters.

Dante also addressed his love for Zutara in his Reddit AMA and even though its already known I just thought it was cute.

Yeah I'm not looking forward to a Katara/Zuko reunion as a shipper, mainly because I just don't find old people ships all that appealing. XD And I see your point, I mean  half the reason I loved Rose/Jake from American Dragon Jake Long was probably because of their actors, and I wasn't even a Zutara fan at the time. Although, it did warm me up to the idea of Zutara a bit if I remember correctly.

I would bet that, at least at a subconscious level, contributed to a lot of Zutara's popularity.  I don't know if I would have shipped them as hard as I do if the actors didn't have that.  In fact that's mostly why Makorra hasn't stuck to me as much.  I like the idea of it, but their scenes, apart from the early ones, felt so forced and really lacking chemistry in the dialogue.  Gifs and music videos of them make me smile, but watching a lot of their moments in the show makes me cringe.

Zutara wasn't like that for me.  I loved their scenes together, and I felt most drawn in and emotional by their interactions.  Fanwork is nice, but I get way more Zutara feels from watching their canon moments.

I agree, especially about the Makorra part. I can definitely see the chemistry between the voice actors as their respective roles. Whether you view Zuko and Katara romantically or just as a friendship, you can't deny it, there was some really natural chemistry there. It's what made their interactions work so well. It was powerful,  and interesting. combine the scene and the acting, it was top notch.
