Thanks for that kind review, Ed! I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I think you did considering that review. ;D

Can anyone here not see why they're the better writers of the group? Really? By the looking at the oneshots you can't tell the good from the mediocre? Ah well, well done Bleu

walking on thin ice, man... seriously. :|

Listen to the lady MM23.  And don't forget she's a firebender and fire and ice don't mix really well. At least for long.... ;)

Bleu you have such an amazing, descriptive narrative here that deals so grippingly with the dark, internal turmoil that Mako has kept within him daily for so many years, and through Korra's support and love, it is finally, mercifully permitted to flow out of him, knowing she can handle it and be there to support him, not ridicule or just pity him.  Prior to her, he's had no one that he could unload that horrible burden.  And let it stay gone, or at least diminished in the debilitating impact it has had on him.

This is really great.  It left me drained at the end, it was so realistic and compelling.  *applauds*

I agree. She's done AMAZINGLY well with such little dialogue. It's AMAZING. What I love about it is how it showcases WHY these two should ABSOLUTELY STAY together. They KNOW what the other is going through. They'd both been alone, shouldering responsibilities they weren't ready for, until they found each other. <3

Good news all, my next contribution is well... next.

Bad news all, it's still in the developing stages, meaning I have an idea it's just not fleshed out yet so bare with me. On an unrelated note my birthday is Sunday! :) :) :)

Heck, divs. My guess as the Almighty Global Modulator, you could, if he continues to behave in this manner, just go in to his account, and pick his avvie and siggie clean and leave him with nuthin' - naked as a jailbird! hahahahahhahahahaha

MM23 - what an incredibly intense story of hatred consuming Mako for revenge, and then, like Katara, realizing that is the wrong path.  I love how you wove the tale of Katara's revenge into this, and how both she and Mako learned a hard lesson. I like the thought of a penitent Zhou with a family who redeemed him.  And the scene of forgiveness and support between Mako and Korra at the end was fantastic.

I also enjoyed the realism of the couple's dynamic that not every day will be all 'wine and panda lilies' between them.

A GREAT effort MM23! I enjoyed your story thoroughly.

Thanks A6 and Cowboy. As the rookie of the group positive feedback is welcome.  yeah I really liked this one. It kinda bothered me that most people when and if they write about the confrontation between Mako and his parents' killer (few as they are) they write the killer as being is cold-blooded monster. That just didn't sit right with me. So I decided to take that perception and twist it. Instead of a monster you have a man who did a horrible thing and yet ended up with a good life, except for the fact that what he did will always haunt him, and here it is coming back at him full force. But here I am summing up what you already know XD

Also, the weaving in Katara's revenge just clicked given the subject I'm writing about. If you must know the one thing that bugged the heck outta me is the title. I have (or at least like to think I have) a certain flair when it comes to oneshot titles, but in this case I was so focused on getting the plot out of my head and onto the Word document that I feel the title was... lacking my usual creativity. Anyway thanks for the support XD
