- Alternative Character Interpretation: Iroh gets a bit of this.
- Darker and Edgier: The author has Shown Their Work as far as subtler effects of psychological/physical abuse goes, likewise with a more realistic approach to difficulties surrounding ending the war.
- Moral Event Horizon: Zuko's whole attitude toward Aang understandably changes after the Siege of the North and the massive slaughter that someone he trusted and let walk free has inflicted on his countrymen. They've patched it up a bit, but Aang and Blue are still very definitely not friends anymore. To be fair to Aang, it was Raava who did it, and to be fair to Zuko, he doesn't know that.
YMMV / Bringing Out the Blue
