Dead End _ After AgniKai by kelly1412 Dead End _ After AgniKai by kelly1412
this is another one of the two alternate ending after the Final Agni kai.

Emotionally, i'd wish Azula could live to the end and repent herself, so i drew the "good end" *[link]

But rationally, i think a dead end maybe more fits this character. Because Azula was born for power maybe it's her fate to die for it. without power, pride and ambition, she is not Azula anymore.

As a perfect royal family member, I believe there are two things that she cares most. one is power, the throne; one is country, her nation. so even she lost her throne, she should still remember her people and the glory of the country. that's how i made up this story...

drawing this really hurt me... I almost gave up halfway... I've spend bloody time on it as well. however the out comes satisfied me a lot. it is what I wanted, though I'm not sure if all of my emotion could delivery properly.
personally, It's my most favorite piece of A:TLA fanart I've done so far...

Oh, god... This made me cry... Never thought that Azula's defeat would make me this sad, but this did...

Really good job!

amazing artwork keep up the good work 
Try listening to the song "A little fall of rain" while reading this...
I've been a fan of A:TLA since it started, I think 8 years ago. From the start, Azula was my favorite character, and even though, I still wanted her to die at the end for the same reason as you did.
Amazing and fantastic job on the ART.

I love this. Azula's my favorite character in ATLA, she is just so...unlike any other character out there. And I think the rivalry between her and Zuko is so intense and awesome...honestly, I think the storyline between them was far more epic and emotional than the main storyline of Aang vs. Ozai.
this is just wow... this puts a whole new perpective on azula.
