''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5398503/1/Embers Embers]]'' is a popular ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' FanFic by Creator/{{Vathara}} that attempts to [[Deconstruction deconstruct]] the standard story of a [[FiveManBand group]] of [[IdiotHero kids]] [[BlackAndWhiteMorality saving]] the world from TheEmpire, with copious amounts of FridgeLogic and FridgeHorror. Moving the WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender universe on the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism (characters had best not try to invoke HeroInsurance, for example), causes the good guys to [[HanlonsRazor seem]] less good and the bad guys to range from AntiHero to pure evil. It also explores things that the TV show had to gloss over for kids, like [[ChildByRape the horrors of war]], [[EldritchAbomination dangerous]] spirits and [[MindRape Azula]].

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Some readers feel the fic isn't spending enough time on the villainous acts of the Fire Nation: characters aren't appropriately horrified by them, or they should be ignoring the Avatar's own actions due to what the Fire Nation did first [[spoiler:or second, or after having been run through the gears of a GambitPileup twice]]. This trope itself appears to be at fault for this – the Fire Nation has committed so many invasions, genocides, war crimes and other actions that people might occasionally be shocked by something really audacious (like killing the Moon) but there's not a lot of real surprise: characters are GenreSavvy enough, and everybody knows what happened to the Air Nomads, so when they do something else it's Just Another Tuesday for Sozin's Fire Nation. On the other hand, when a good guy, much less a pacifist, does something as unexpected as [[spoiler:metaphorically bringing a very dirty warhead to a bending fight when he's the Avatar, and thus by definition powerful enough to have no real need to resort to such a thing,]] WhatTheHellHero ensues.

Added DiffLines:

* DragonAncestry: Most of the Fire Nation has dragon ancestry to some degree or another; for most its distant enough that the only non-human traits they have are SupernaturalGoldEyes, but for Zuko and Azula ([[spoiler:whose grandfather is a dragon]]), they have claw-like nails that can only be filed with obsidian, more powerful [[PlayingWithFire firebending]] than is usual, and NoSocialSkills due to the conflict between their draconic and human instincts for how to interact with others. The reason that it isn't widely known is that Fire Nation keeps their draconic heritage a secret from the other nations, out of fear of being seen as animals or less than human because of it.
