Sample of a Journal Entry (reflective in character):
I have a lot on my mind these days.

I'm sure it was a hard journey for the others, running around the world trying to master the elements, living in fear of another Fire Nation attack, trying to save the world. I can't pretend to understand how terrifying that must have been.

But I don't think they will ever understand what I went through. What I'm still going through.

I've never been good enough. In my father's eyes, Azula was the gifted one, Zuko the failure of a son who let the Avatar slip from his grasp time and time again. Even when my honor and place on the throne were restored, I wasn't good enough--I had sacrificed myself, I had given up what was right in order to gain power--just like my father. And when I defected to the Avatar's side, I wasn't trustworthy. It took a long time for Katara to believe that I wouldn't betray them...sometimes I think she still suspects me. Heh.

I thought things would be easier once the war was over. I could sit back and feed Mai grapes on the beach while my uncle or some stiff official ran things. How wrong I was. I'm in government meetings all day, working to build up the Fire Nation--the whole world--from the ashes my father had sown. The officials aren't used to obeying me, an outcast who seeks peace before conquest. People are reluctant to trust the Fire Lord after speaking his name with hate and fear for so long. Despite my good intentions, it takes work to make them believe me. I'm still not good enough.

The others have had their share of near-death experiences, most of them my fault. But they don't have a disfiguring scar to remind them that they will never be good enough.

Sample of a RP Entry (in character, third person): (Copying smash_circuit/Sokka's bed theme >P)

Mai always said he was too tense. As he slid off the exquisite silk robes that marked him as royalty, his eyes were drawn to his reflection in the gold-rimmed floor-length mirror. A shiny pink star across his torso now matched the scar that covered the left side of his face, courtesy Azula and his ever-loving father. It had healed smoothly, thanks to regular treatments from Katara and her water-bending, but it would leave a mark for the rest of his life.

Whatever. He could start a collection at this point.

But Fire Lord Zuko had more to deal with than old wounds. His father's final battle as Fire Lord left miles of Earth Kingdom land scorched and destroyed. Colonies had to be returned to self-rule. Within his own cabinet of advisers, expansionists protested his every move, but he couldn't afford to find new help: the Fire Nation's expansion policy had cost a fortune, and now that the raw materials from the colonies and the Earth Kingdom were given up or destroyed altogether, his country was facing a serious financial crisis. The people of the Fire Nation were unsure of their new leader, whether this peace he sought was really just the sign of a weak and feeble ruler.

And then, what to do about the air benders, whom his own grandfather wiped out years ago? Should he ask Aang to resurrect the lifestyle of the Air Nomads, and what priority would that take in relation to his Avatar duties?

Zuko pulled the metal flame emblem out of his top knot and ran shaking fingers through his hair. The stress was almost unbearable--and he had thought things would be easier once the war was over! Ha. He'd been sick and sleepless the first week after his coronation; luckily now he got a couple hours before his restless mind forced him awake. He hardly had any time to himself anymore.

The doors groaned as they were swung open, but before they had even squeaked shut cool hands covered his eyes. Instantly a smile broke out across his face as he whipped around and scooped up his beautiful girlfriend. Feeling the thinness of her red silk robe, he knew he would sleep well tonight.

(;) See, I can handle Maiko.)

Insert Word Here: boomerang
Why do you want to join atla_aftermath?:
Because I haven't roleplayed in too long and I miss doing it. And I miss the glory that is Avatar. And I have thought a lot about writing aftermath fanfic. And I love suspicious and it will make her happy to know that me controlling Zuko will mean absolutely no Zutara. <3
