* LongHairIsFeminine: LongHairIsFeminine:
**
Azula and Katara rarely wear their hair in the trademark updoes of the show.



** Katara's might be accidentally justified since in the later half of season 3 and post-series comics and images show that Katara kept her hair mostly down.
*** Yes, but she still kept her trademark hair loopies, whereas HIBY!Katara didn't.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: And unintentionally, too.
** Zuko is portrayed as a DomesticAbuser who would rather be with Katara then to fulfill his duties as a Fire Lord.
** All Katara ever does in the story is whine, make everything about her, and is generally a bad friend to everybody else. Actual villainy kicks in later on when she [[spoiler:murders Mai]].
* AdaptationalWimp: Oh man, where to start...
** In general, every single female character that appears in this comic (sans Mai) get [[{{Chickification}} chickified]] to fairly unrealistic levels, such as giving Toph huge D-cup sized breasts at the age of 16.
** Speaking of Toph, she gets this treatment pretty badly, going from a devil-may-care fighter to a soft-spoken, nervous flower of a girl who willingly bottoms to a guy she calls "twinkle-toes".
** Katara. The things she does the most in this fic? Whining. Being self-centered. Making even her unborn child's death all about her. Only caring about being Zuko's love interest. Wearing pretty dresses (which isn't bad in and of itself, but considering the canon setting, they're very out of place). The only scene in which she's ever seen using the Action Girl skills that she worked so far for in the series? When [[spoiler:she bloodbends Mai to death]].
** Azula, we hardly knew ye. She's absolutely ''nothing'' like her badass original counterpart. In fact, she hardly ever does ''anything'' in the comic beside hang out with Katara and Sokka.
** Aang does absolutely nothing in the whole damn comic besides being Toph's lover.
** Actually lampshaded in [[http://s762.photobucket.com/albums/xx265/ReneeLuvsZutara/HIBY%20Chapter%202/?action=view¤t=056.jpg Chapter 2]].
--->'''Toph''': Look Katara what happened to that fearless sugar queen I know? I know she's in there!

* MoralDissonance: Zuko impregnates a fifteen-year-old girl, carries on a love affair with her after he marries his betrothed, then ''slaps and verbally abuses his wife'' when she dares to get upset. Yet he's presented unerringly as a hero.

* BloodFromTheMouth: Sho's mouth is dripping blood after a fight with Toph. However, the injury doesn't seem very serious, as he's able to pull off a DeusExitMachina just seconds after he's hurt. Either that, or he's just that {{Badass}}.

* AnachronismStew: Rampant. The crowning moment of this trope occurs when Katara is seen wearing the [[http://www.allaboutgemstones.com/_gems_history_sapphire_hall_necklace.html Hall Sapphire Necklace.]] [[http://s762.photobucket.com/albums/xx265/ReneeLuvsZutara/HIBY%20Chapter%202/?action=view¤t=060.jpg No, really, it's Photoshopped onto the drawing.]]

* OffscreenBreakup: Sokka and Ty Lee. Early on, Sokka compares the way Katara feels about Zuko to the way he ''used to'' feel about Suki. At the party in Chapter 2, Ty Lee mentions in passing that it's a shame they broke up, and Katara mentions that "long distance relationships never work out."

Added DiffLines:

* AltText: The tumblr rehost has amusing comments in each strip's tags.


Added DiffLines:

** After finding an injured woman dressed as an assassin, the gang decide not to unmask her.


Added DiffLines:

** Especially noticeable with Toph's dress during the ball, which is barely high enough to cover her nipples.


Added DiffLines:

* PlotHole: Zuko and Katara each put a mark on the other's chest during their affair. This is apparently a Fire Nation tradition, which only brings up the question of how Mai never noticed, and why she didn't insist on trading marks with him herself. Plus these are only visible when they are first introduced, despite Zuko's WalkingShirtlessScene and Katara [[ImpossiblyLowNeckline never wearing a dress that would cover it]].

** Also, her ninja costume from her introduction. It's dark and has a mask, but it exposes enough of her pearly-white skin that she'd be highly noticeable at night.



*** Yes, but she still kept her trademark hair loopies, whereas HIBY!Katara didn't.



* MalignedMixedMarriage: Used so ubiquitously to the point of absurdity.

to:

* MalignedMixedMarriage: Used so ubiquitously to the point of absurdity. A Fire Nation royal not being wanted to marry a Water Tribeswoman is understandable, given the nations were at war not very long ago, but why would anyone protest the marriage of an Earth Kingdom girl to an Air Nomad, especially when said Air Nomad is the ''Avatar''?



* MeaningfulName: "Azula" is theorized to mean "dragon" in this fic, missing the point that it's most likely a reference to her blue fire ("Azul" means "blue"), as well as, in universe, being named after Azulong.
