General Iroh. Fire Nation hero. First born son of Fire Lord Azulan. The Dragon of the West. It was thought he would be the greatest warrior in the history of the Fire Nation.

But all that changed when the war claimed his son's life. This changed him, and he turned his back on the war.

This was a necessary event. Iroh had a role to play in bringing balance back to the world...but to play that role, he first had to be broken down, so that he could be rebuilt. This truth was self evident in the spirit realm.

But one particular spirit felt this was unfair to Iroh. The wheels of fate are cruel to those caught in the gears, but this particular spirit felt that Iroh deserved kindness. And so this spirit sent Iroh one who would help him to rebuild himself.

And so, shortly after his son's funeral, Iroh would find a creature sent by the spirits, the likes of which he never would have imagined...a pretty pink pony princess.

Somepony to love...and be loved by.

This is it.
This is what we were all missing.

Can't wait to see how she gets along with Zuko.

This site needs more Iroh...

Didn't you say you had no plans for Cadance? Ether way, this gunna b gud.

I think one question is on everyone's mind: How will Zuko react to Cadence? Would be interesting to see considering what happened in the show.

So... Is Cadence in the avatar world with Iroh and Zuko? Or this story is not going to have the Avatar?

I cannot think of a comment that describes exactly how awesome this will be.

Yes, she's in the Avatar world.

about time for an avatar crossover

I was chilling in my room when I saw this and my brother was in the room too so I made this face at him:
For at least five minutes before he left.

...you... you are one of three authors who have made stories that make me actually feel emotions for the characters... I can't wait to see where this is going.

I would've expected Celestia instead of Cadence. Also everyone seems to forget Azula, imagine how those two would react to each other.

Best Princess being raised by Iroh. YES! oh I can not wait to see how well her and Zuko get along during their journey

Huh. Princess of love, but no romance tag. Interesting.

6379561 The power of love is a curious thing.

6379537 Zuko.....and Cadence... :rainbowhuh: My God I want tickets to that!! :rainbowlaugh: That will be amazing!

gawd that's adorable.


I'm just going to go cry in the corner now.

6379502 like oil and water...and thats on a good day. i can see Cadence being good for both Iroh and Zuko though, a stabilizing force

Perhaps one of your stories could involve Zecora being raised by Beast. Does anyone else agree?

So how far after the show will you be going?

you brilliant amazing pony you have won ALL the mustaches the internet can hold:moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

6379643 Firstly, agreed. Can you bring some for me?

General Iroh. Fire Nation hero. First born son of Fire Lord Azulan. The Dragon of the West. It was thought he would be the greatest warrior in the history of the Fire Nation.

Should be "Azulon".
Thirdly, wow. I never expected this! I was thinking more Celestia, cause they're both wise, mysterious rulers who enjoy tea and, um... being wise and mysterious?

Awwwhahahaawwww man, this is so great! :rainbowkiss: flipping Cadance with Avatar? That is neat... though I haven't watched much of it, save for like... one or two episodes I can't remember. I need to watch it... Google, here I come.

Awesome job on this man, I am looking forward to more of this soon~ :yay:

I've seen it spelled both ways in wikis. Since he's literally only mentioned by name in the description, I think I can leave it.

6379502 I honestly can't decide if that would be a nightmare for both or Azula's salvation. Possibly both?

6379715 Fair enough. Heh heh. Can't wait for Zuko's reaction. What scope are you looking to cover?

6379781 Um... wut? My phone wouldn't load the image

Zuko can't handle Cadence! He. Just. Can't!


You. Are. A. God.
That is all.

This is the story i never knew i wanted.
Watching with furious interest.

Faving this pre-emptively, because I know I would after reading the first chapter anyway.

I can already tell that this is going to be 9000 Times better than that s****y M.Night Shyamalan movie.

"And such a beautiful singing voice as well. You had perfect cadence."

I believe you meant she had a strong cadence, since the sentence implies she had perfect cadence such as one can have perfect pitch throughout a song. A cadence is a strong or weak sense of finality to a song, verse, phrase, anything. It's a configuration of notes that, without ending the song entirely, create the sense that the song is on the verge of ending. There are multiple types of cadences and definitions, such as harmonic cadences, involving the finality involved with cords that end phrases and pieces, and rhythmic cadences, which focus on the rhythmic patterns that signal the end of a piece.

There there is the standard definition of it being the natural rise and fall of one's voice, but in this instance, you're referring to the musicality aspects of her voice, not the simple inflections one uses in everyday speech.

And to sum this all up, it's just a rather odd compliment that feels awfully forced and contrived. It doesn't really fit with everything else and stands out like a sore thumb to me.

But besides that, I felt you really did well in characterizing Iroh. I'm still trying to remember all that happened in Avatar: The Last Airbender because The Legend of Korra is fresh in my mind. I actually just recently finished it. But I think that you've got something going here. I'll stick around for a bit and see where you take this.

A great start. Can't wait for more.:pinkiehappy::derpytongue2::moustache:


... As one Whovian to Another- I'll say it right now. This author does his research, and is one of the best I've ever known. You should do more than 'stick around' for this story- I would suggest looking at ALL of his stories- as he has a whole Multiverse dedicated to these one Character Crossovers. (Ever read 'The Sparkle in His Eye'? I'd suggest that first- it's one of his best in my books.)

I'm sure he's a fantastic writer (I'm impressed with some things so far), but no one is infallible. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately, though, I can't say I'm a massive fan of crossovers, and the one's I do enjoy are usually well-crafted, such as Loyal2Luna's Doctor Whooves stories and Arad's XCOM series. Both are simply amazing stories that have blown me away. But both have really good reasons for the crossover to exist and a story behind it that makes their existence worth while.

And that's why I took a chance to read this one. I mean, we don't know necessarily how Cadence got there, but Iroh assumes she's a spirit, which fits the universe and also makes for a very interesting dynamic. That's what drew me in, and very few crossovers do that for me.

Anyway, I'm sure that if the author has fans that are willing to tell others that his stories are awesome, I won't be disappointed by this.

6380144 Great minds think alike. I mean, it's TATS for crying out loud! I've yet to be disappointed by his work. And i do love avatar, even if i could never get into korra. anyway, She's being raised by my second favorite character of the series, after Bumi, So we're already off to a great start!


I understand what you mean, really I do, as I'm a rather... 'picky' reader in all honesty (also- I will be looking those 2 up later.) But this Author here has made me change my mind on multiple genre's, multiple times, with MULTIPLE Concepts. He is meticulous in his work- I'm assuming the only reason you knew that that was grammatically incorrect was years of your own musical experience in some way (or just some extremely specific fact you learned)

I also realize how I am making this look when I suggest this author to you- because I have spent MANY an hour on this site, reading MANY a story. The Good, The Bad, And the Ugly. I spend many nights looking for those 'hidden gems' that get lost in the site- stories that deserve to see the light of day but never truly do. So- believe me when I say that I'm not just being a 'Fan Boy' for this author's works. These are simply good stories.... Okay- that's a lie. If they were good stories- I wouldn't be pushing this as hard as I am.

They are GREAT stories. FANTASTIC Stories even.

They are not 'The Best' stories I've read on this site- I limit myself to a Handful of them, and only if they are REALLY worthy of it.... But- I have been very tempted on multiple occasions to put them in that small Handful. VERY.

..... Also um- .... Sorry for pushing this as far as I am. >_< I just remember not reading stories like this because I didn't think they would be worth it..... I'm seeing a bit of myself here, and I hope you don't take offense to it. You have different views and in-sights than I do- and perhaps 3 AM is not a good time to be writing such things, but I only get this passionate because his work have moved me as such.

So- Again. Sorry for being so pushy with this, but you shouldn't stop yourself from reading any of his completed works. Seriously- I was hitting myself after I read "You Can't Spell Slaughter Without Laughter!" Because of a 'Gore' Genre bubble. >_<

And someday, the equivalent all the ponies of Equestria will be de-aged and sent off to be raised by people who need them...

Personally, I'm kind of wondering who will end up raising Celestia... :twilightoops:
