When you’ve been abused by a parent like that dealing with anything afterwords is terrifying.
I can only imagine the emotions Zuko was feeling when he apologised to Iroh there.
^This is one of the reasons that I think going in to apologize to Iroh is one of the bravest things that Zuko’s ever done, because of how much it must have terrified him to do so (Iroh would never hurt Zuko like that, but that fear had to have been at the top of Zuko’s mind at this moment)
And why I love Iroh so, so much for being who he is.
Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.

They’re in Sayaka’s room — or the dream of it, anyway — when she remembers one of the many things she’s been waiting to say.
"Hey, Kyouko. There’s this story I heard from an American girl." Sayaka doesn’t say where.
"Yeah?" says Kyouko, and Sayaka knows that’s the most prompting she’s going to get out of her.
So she tells the tale the way she remembers it: the city, the bounty, the harmony, the single lonely child in a dark and dirty dungeon.
"You’re asking if I’d walk away," Kyouko says when she’s finished.
"Yeah, I guess," Sayaka says, though she thinks she already knows the answer.
"Hell no!" says Kyouko. "It sounds like a great place to me. Just about everywhere else in the world pays a higher price and doesn’t get nearly as much for it. Or, at least, what it gets isn’t spread around as well."
"I see." Sayaka is disappointed, but not really surprised. That’s always been the fundamental divide between them.
Kyouko takes Sayaka’s hand in hers.
"I mean," she says, "that I wouldn’t walk away on my own."
She laces their fingers together and gives a little squeeze.
"But when you went, I would follow you."
