Added DiffLines:

* ArmorPiercingQuestion: He asks Aang a few while he's complaining about Zuko kicking him out of the meeting, asking Aang why he thinks Zuko should listen to him, whether Aang thinks his opinion should always matter, and whether Aang's been listening to Zuko.

* AccidentalPervert: Katara wishes she was this. Problem for her is that all to often, her perversions are either obviously deliberate or fail to materialise.

* {{Flanderization}}: In canon, Aang is a somewhat naive and childish but highly compassionate boy who gradually embraces his destiny as [[TheChosenOne the Avatar]] while balancing it with his desire to preserve his all but extinct culture, and his love for Katara. In this fic, Aang is practically obsessed with Air Nomad teachings to the point of forcing them on others, is almost a stalker towards Katara, and acts even less mature than in canon.

-->''"Of all the things that Jet and I have in common – I never in a million years expected stalking Zuko to be one of them."''
-->--Katara, regarding Jet.


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticVillainy: While not evil, she is something of an antagonist in that she doesn't think much of Kuei's relationship with Song. That said, she does offer to give them a chance as long as they keep their relationship secret, instead of opposing them outright, because she thinks they'll be forced to break up.

* TheMedic

to:

* TheMedicTheMedic: A healer by trade.




-->''"I'm oddly glad that Zuko doesn't talk much about his childhood. I think if he did, it would make me too sad. Or it would make me so mad that I'd storm to the capital myself and find Ozai and just beat the crap out of him and say you do not treat people like that!"''
-->--Katara, regarding Ozai



* UnfitForGreatness: To put it mildly. The author notes that even apart from his sadism and cruelty, he's also not a very competent ruler.




to:

-->'''Katara''': Now that I know how Zuko got his scar, I'm inclined to share his worry. [[UnderStatement Ozai's not… he's not]] ''[[UnderStatement sentimental]]'' about children. He's not going to go easy on Aang just because he's a kid.

* DistinctionWithoutADifference: She says that she likes looking at Zuko with his shirt off, but won't touch him unless she can think of a reason.



* NoExceptYes: She says that she likes looking at Zuko with his shirt off, but won't touch him unless she can think of a reason.

to:

* NoExceptYes: She says MalignedMixedMarriage: Katara isn't just keeping her attraction to Zuko secret because she finds it embarrassing to admit- she also knows that she likes looking at Zuko her tribe wouldn't approve of her falling in love with his shirt off, but won't touch him unless she can think Zuko. Of course, the author believes that such forbidden love succeeding is ''more'' in the spirit of a reason.Avatar than Kataang is.



* ReluctantRuler: He repeatedly makes it very clear that he'd rather have his uncle become Fire Lord, and only agrees to do so when Iroh agrees to advise him.



* AdaptationalIntelligence: In a sense. He comes off as less mature than in canon, so his decision-making skills obviously are that much worse.



* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Romantic love and sex are separate things to him and understand doesn't why it would intersect.

to:

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Romantic love and sex are separate things to him and understand he doesn't understand why it would intersect.



* TheFriendNobodyLikes: He, possibly unintentionally, comes off as a mix of Necessity(since he's [[TheChosenOne the Avatar]]) and Pity(since, for all his flaws, he's such a NiceGuy that he's hard to hate). The Gaang keep him around, but they, particularly Katara, seem to feel bad for him more often than actually enjoying his company or respecting him, and can be fairly harsh on him when he makes a decision they don't agree with him, even if they don't say it to his face."

* HenpeckedHusband: Thought to be this to Suki.
* MalignedMixedMarriage: To a lesser degree than Katara or Bato, but Hakoda isn't completely happy with Suki.



* [[spoiler: NotHisSled: He doesn't die and recovers from his injuries and brainwashing in ''Not Stalking Firelord Zuko'']]

* CoolOldLady

to:

* CoolOldLady CoolOldLady: An relatively old woman with many years of experience.



* BaitTheDog: After starting to warm up to Katara a little, Azula unpleasantly surprises everyone involved by revealing that Mai was spying on Zuko for her.



* PapaWolf

to:

* PapaWolfPapaWolf: Frequently described as violently protective of Zuko. The author notes that staying in Ba Sing Se while Zuko was badly injured was an OutOfCharacterMoment for him, which she rectified here.







to:

* WisdomFromTheGutter: As the lieutenant aboard Zuko's ship, he's probably the most unlikely candidate for Zuko's inner circle of advisors.



* CynicalMentor

to:

* CynicalMentorCynicalMentor: She provides Zuko with the most expedient and practical advice, and doesn't think much of Aang or his ideals.



* ShutUpKirk: She delivers one to Aang after he insists that sparing Ozai was right, but that he wishes that Ozai weren't plotting a coup.

to:

* PragmaticHero: She's willing to consider some shady tactics for the good of Zuko's rule, and only rules out having Ozai killed in prison because Zuko's image is based on being better than Ozai.
* ShutUpKirk: She delivers one to Aang after he insists that sparing Ozai was right, but while adding that he wishes that Ozai weren't plotting a coup.



* WouldHurtAChild: Katara shares Zuko's worry about how Aang will do against Ozai, because if he's the kind who would scar his own child, he won't go easy on Aang because he's a kid.

to:

* WouldHurtAChild: Katara shares Zuko's worry about how Aang will do fare against Ozai, because if he's Ozai's the kind who would scar his own child, he won't go easy on Aang because he's a kid.






* MalignedMixedMarriage: His relationship with a Fire Nation woman, as well as keeping it secret, causes friction between him and Hakoda.



* NoSympathy: When Katara's family opposes his position on the Fire Nation, Arnook makes it clear that he doesn't care about their grief over Kya's death, or what losing Yue meant for Sokka, simply because they disagree with him.



* {{Jerkass}}: He makes blatantly misogynistic and racist remarks. Katara had chosen to sit in the seat of honor next to him so that she could address the tribes about their view of women, ends up hitting him with a snack tray and losing that spot, simply because she can't tolerate him long enough. Even [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter Arnook]] eventually realizes that he's not fit to be his successor.

* AdaptationalWimp: Implied, since the author does not consider him a master of all four elements, and implies that he only won against Ozai because he got lucky.



* TheFriendNobodyLikes: He, possibly unintentionally, comes off as a mix of Necessity(since he's [[TheChosenOne the Avatar]]) and Pity(since, for all his flaws, he's such a NiceGuy that he's hard to hate).

to:

* ToughLove: On the receiving end of this from the author, who believes that canon should have been harsher with him.



* EveryoneHasStandards: On the receiving end of this, according to Mai. Even the "twin-fish," fish that eat each other by the time they're juveniles, would find Zuko and Azula's sibling relationship incredibly dysfunctional.



* TheFriendNobodyLikes: No one that didn't knew her previously likes her and barely tolerate because she's Zuko's girlfriend, making her a Dating example.

to:

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: No one that didn't knew her previously likes her and barely tolerate because she's Zuko's girlfriend, making her a Dating example. Surprisingly enough, though, she starts getting along better with the others after (albeit not ''as a result of'') her final breakup with Zuko.

* LastDisrespects: His taking the crown during his father's funeral is said to be an extreme violation of Fire Nation traditions.




to:

* SecretRelationship: He keeps his relationship with Ming secret at first, although Katara finds out about it, and it eventually becomes known to the rest of her tribe.



* EntitledToHaveYou: Thinks because he's going to to chief that he should have Katara. Since he's one of two people that Pakku believes to be worthy of Katara (the other being [[TheChosenOne Aang]]), it's not entirely baseless... except for [[SarcasmMode the small bit]] about his personality

to:

-->''"Ming said she knew that her dad was alive because of that man, and she'd never be able to thank him properly. She decided that if she couldn't thank him properly, she could at least emulate his example and be decent to people, regardless of where they were from."''
-->--Katara, regarding Ming[[note]]"That man" is the Earth Kingdom healer who saved her father's life[[/note]]




to:

* StatuesqueStunner: She's said to be as tall as Bato, one of the tallest men from Katara's tribe, and very pretty, to boot.




to:

-->''"Bato said that he loved Ming with all his heart and there was nothing lewd or immoral about their relationship. Love was Love. It was a gift from the spirits and sprung up in the most unlikely of places. Bato was not one to deny the will of the spirits – and they had obviously meant for him to love Ming, for she was his other half. More importantly, she was kind and smart and good. To dismiss her out of hand for being firenation was to do her a great disservice."''
-->--Katara, regarding Bato.




to:

* KirkSummation: He says the above quote in defense of interracial marriages, specifically his own love of Ming. This gets him a ShutUpKirk from Han in response.




to:

-->''"Yugoda said simply, that she had been treated unequally her whole life and she had learnt various ways around it. I said that just because she had been treated unequally her whole life didn't make unequal treatment right – it just meant that she was used to it. Yugoda said you do just get so used to it simply."''
-->--Katara, regarding Yugoda.

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Downplayed, but she's "used to" the patriarchal society of the Northern Water Tribe, even if she doesn't like it.



* AdaptationalVillainy: In canon, he's portrayed as a wise and benevolent leader, while here, he [[MoralMyopia only really cares about his family and tribe]].



* EntitledToHaveYou: Thinks because he's going to to chief that he should have Katara

* HateSink: He's one of the few characters without any sympathetic or redeeming qualities, and essentially serves this role now that the major villains have been dealt with.

* FirstPersonSmartass: Katara has a great deal of snark in her narration, particularly many times when she can't or doesn't want to say it out loud.



* BehindEveryGreatMan: While "Great" is stretching it as far as Kuei goes, the Dowager is the power behind the throne.



* NotWorthKilling: Katara realizes that part of the reason why she can't kill him is because doing so would make her a murderer without bringing her mother back, and part of it is because it would give her no satisfaction to kill someone like him.

That said, when Zuko proposes putting Yon Rha on trial for war crimes, Katara's receptive to the possibility.



* TheMedic

to:

* TheMedicTheMedic: One who primarily works with more scientific and medicine-based methods, instead of bending.



* EvilCannotComprehendGood:

to:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood:EvilCannotComprehendGood: He mocks Aang for sparing him. Aang, who'd held out hope of Ozai being changed for the better by his mercy, doesn't take it well.




to:

-->''"It was the one thing that my Dad hated, us keeping secrets from him. That's why he always wanted to be the cool dad, because he wanted us to always feel comfortable enough to tell him everything."''
-->--Katara, regarding Hakoda.



* WantsAPrizeForBasicDecency: During an argument with Kataa, he says he thinks of himself as a good parent by Water Tribe standards because he doesn't [[DomesticAbuser beat his wife]] or [[AbusiveParents kids]]. Katara is not amused when she hears this.

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Despite her tumultuous relationships with Zuko, she warns him about a planned coup, and gives him the time he needs to deal with the conspirators and negate Ozai's claim to the throne.

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Despite her tumultuous relationships with Zuko, she warns him about a planned coup, and which gives him the time he needs to deal with the conspirators and negate Ozai's claim to the throne.



* {{Flanderization}}: In canon, Mai, despite being forced to repress her emotions for the sake of her family's social status, does often find that Zuko brings them out (which include her negative emotions), and also possesses a dry, snarky wit. In this fic, Mai's a snarky jerk whose relationship with Zuko is dysfunctional at best.



* DrillSergeantNasty: Her style of teaching, mentioned above, is shown to be quite brutal and risks injuring Zuko, so Katara understandably thinks it's not necessarily good for him, much less Aang.



* TheCaligula: More prominent than canon, he had dissenters disappeared

to:

* AdaptationalWimp: In a sense. He's portrayed as a more or less incompetent Fire Lord, who's only really good at manipulating people, and is considered an UnskilledButStrong bender.
* TheCaligula: More prominent He's shown as significantly more mentally unbalanced than in canon, he had dissenters disappearedsuch as by having dissidents killed.
