Summary: For the first time, Zuko fights his sister on equal ground

On the Field of Battle

Despite his regret over the fact that it had come to this, Zuko felt exhilarated as he dueled his sister for the crown and throne of his nation and the fate of the world. He was matching her blow for blow, meeting her every move. He had gotten hints of this when he had fought her at the Boiling Rock, but Sokka had also been involved in that battle, helping him. Unlike that fight, this one was one-on-one, with no need to worry about protecting anyone else. With the power of the comet thrumming in his blood, he was finally meeting his sister as an equal on the field of battle.

I really like this. You touch on a lot of Zuko's emotions, but I'm glad you focus here on his feelings of triumph and worthiness. Sozin's Comet is powerful, and it would indeed affect Zuko's opinion of himself to be able to wield that power but also doing it on his terms, he controls the power not the other way around and for once he is Azula's equal which is a powerful feeling in and of itself.
