Summary: In which Zuko is working too hard (as usual), and his uncle corners him to talk about it.

Reccer Notes: I really love the way Sly reads Zuko's pov; Zuko and Iroh's affection for (and irritation with) each other really come through, as does Sly's affection for both of them. It's a short story that should pack a heavy emotional wallop (Iroh and Zuko sort of have a conversation about Zuko's asexuality), but to Iroh it's only an issue insofar as it's an issue for Zuko, and Sly reads Iroh in such a way that, like Zuko, I almost miss the implication of what he's saying, every single time. I've listened to it four times, in anticipation of writing this review, and every time the realization sort of steals over me, in much the same way as it does Zuko, and it's a really nice listener-and-Zuko mindmeld thing :)
