Truth to his words
The hook to this tale is how realistic it feels. His Father's Son shows the ugly but more truthful side to politics; how heavily the rest of the world hits the Fire Nation when all is said and done, all the doubts, pains, and choices facing Zuko, and what sort of man his father was. Though hated as a monster, Ozai can't be denied for thinking about his people. He sees the ugly side to life and acted accordingly in his rule, providing for his people above all others. Slowly Zuko learns just what it means to carry the name, and blood, of a Fire Lord. There's one or two spelling blemishes in there but otherwise very gripping.

Great fanfic
Short, but enjoyable story. This story is meant to be a deconstruction of the series happy ending, and Marvel26 does a excellent work on writing it as realistic as possible. I mean, it ain't so easy that after a one hundred years war, everyone becomes suddenly friends. It's clear that Marvel26 had read some history or politics, and he shows it indirectly many times through the story. One of the best part is how the way Ozai is portrayed. Ozai is portrayed as a competent Magnificent Bastard, and the story isn't afraid to letting him telling his logics, which some actually have some good points about how things are ruled, while yet remaining in-character. This story is worth reading, especially if you're interested in politics (and it's reather fun to know how much it predicted the plot of Avatar The Last Airbender The Promise comic book).

The Evil Oboist's review
Well-written and thought-provoking, but it's one of those fics that I really wanted to unread, along with "When All Your Dreams Come True." If, like me, you actually found Avatar's idealism to be really appealing, I'd steer clear of this fic. Simply for matters of personal taste, it doesn't get my recommendation here.
