Summary: Iroh learns of Lu Ten's death


Your son is dead.

Only four simple words, but those four simple words had just knocked the bottom out of Iroh's world. Out of the corner of his eye, he noticed that the messenger was watching him warily, as if afraid of his reaction. Swallowing, Iroh found his voice. "Are you certain?" he asked.

"Yes, sir," the messenger replied. "His battalion was ambushed by earthbenders. There were no survivors. He was one of the few who made it back to our lines, but he and the other three who did were too badly injured to be saved. The healers are preparing his body for cremation as we speak."

"Thank you for bringing me the news," Iroh said. "Inform the other generals that they are to meet me in the command tent in one hour and then you may return to your other duties."

"Yes sir," the messenger said. He bowed and then was gone, leaving the tent silently. Iroh barely noticed his departure. It was time to end the siege.

Two hours later, after a difficult meeting with the other generals, Iroh returned to his tent and was finally able to give in to his grief. Tears rolling down his cheeks, the Dragon of the West cried silently long into the night.

A/N: Many, many, many thanks are due to my amazing beta, [ profile] amanda_violet. Without her, this story would be nowhere near as polished and it would not have reached its current form.

Summary: Iroh waits for word of the Gaang's victories


As Iroh oversaw the details of the surrender of the Fire Nation's forces to the Order of the White Lotus, part of his mind was still elsewhere, with those brave young people who were risking everything to save the world. Had Zuko and Katara defeated Azula? Had Sokka, Suki and Toph been able to stop the airship fleet? And most importantly, had Aang been able to defeat Ozai? For that last question, at least, he had a possible answer. Just two hours ago, the western sky had lit up with an amazing display of light, ending with a pillar of blue light reminiscent of the one that had signaled the Avatar's reappearance at the South Pole. Iroh could only hope that this display of light had signaled the Firelord's defeat by the Avatar.
