Title: The Princess and the Thief
Author: MTL76
Rating: T
Characters/Relationship: Azula, OC, whole Gaang incl. Iroh, Ty Lee, Mai
Brief Summary: Approx 1 year after the end of the war, Azula is freed by a hired thief from Ba Sing Se, Nazumi, and brought to the ones who paid him for that work and who promised to bring Azula to power and give her the revenge she wants.
But they are in real the servants of a known dark powerful spirit who want's revenge on all humanity. Also includes a neat idea how the Si Wong Desert was created.
In the end the evil ones are defeated and the world is saved once again, but won't say no more here to not spoil you.

Short Excerpt: [from Ch. 4: Fight and Flight] Azula looked at the men. There was a time when they would have obeyed her every command, would have died for her. Now, she was a common criminal. It was so ridiculous, she didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. What did one say in a situation like this? She would have to try and bluff her way past. “Soldier, I've no wish to hurt you or your men. As your Fire Lord, I order you to stand aside and let us pass.”

This seemed to galvanize the soldiers, but not in the way Azula had intended. The rest of them drew their weapons. They answered to Fire Lord Zuko, not her. The soldier who had spoken first, encouraged by his comrades, replied with more confidence. “Prisoner, I won’t ask you again. Stop what you’re doing, come back with us to your room and I promise you won’t be hurt.” He reached out to grab her shoulder with his free hand.

Azula heard Ozai’s laughter in her ears. Shut up, father. I’m never going back.

Why It's Good: Well written, character are IC, and it gets very intense in the end.

Personal Comment Usually I have some issues when an OC plays an important role, but Nazumi is well written and believable, and it all fit's together well.
