[this is Azula, lying in bed with a pad of paper a fountain pen, and a gigantic dictionary]

[she's copying words from it]

[... she's almost at the Bs]
[Heeeeeeeere's Azula limping into her room at Cuddy's house after her latest (and last?) tangle with the Joker-- she's sporting several bad cuts and bruises and a black eye, and she holds a badly sprained right arm protectively against her side as she flops down on the bed]

... Fine. I'm not doing it again.
Being a monster does not mean I'm a tyrant or a bad ruler.

OOC: Reference!
[She doesn't sound hazy and sedated anymore-- just exhausted]

Former Fire Lord Ozai.

I'm not giving up. You can try to keep me here forever and do whatever you want to me, but I always win in the end.

I'm stronger than you. I know I...

[Audio out]

[When the audio turns on and Azula starts speaking, she sounds unstable; desperate; crazed, almost]

This is ridiculous. I'm through with the cowards here; they can't even--

[She suddenly stops to yell at a guard that's walking past]

You! When I get out of here, what do you think is going to happen to those of you who turned traitor? And if you don't think I'm going to get out, just ask him why he doesn't come down here to beat me up when I'm not too sedated to fight back properly. Hm? It's because he doesn't want me to escape the guards; it's because he doesn't want me to have a chance of winning against him. He knows that I can take down all of you single-handed and then go on to defeat him, all without breaking a sweat. He doesn't want me to--

[But the guard just walks away, pretending not to listen]

Fine; ignore me. Go back to your quarters and pretend that there's no chance of me getting out of here and doing all the awful things to you that you know we do to trait--



This is me "keeping you posted", Dr. Cuddy.

[The audio clicks off]
[There's the sound of a concentrated blast of fire hitting her prison cell wall-- she's still trying to break free, and while she's slowly but surely making headway, she's nowhere close to being out]

Father, if you're going to have my soldiers just leave me down here, make sure that they don't forget to feed me.
I imagine that there are people here who are wondering what exactly is going on in my world. I assure you, I have the situation perfectly under control. This little... mishap was unfortunate, but not completely irreparable. The former Fire Lord Ozai has acted foolishly and treacherously, and will be dealt with accordingly. Despite any ulterior motive he may have had, the fact remains that I was given the throne, and I am therefore the true Fire Lord.

[There's a loooooong pause]

I am confident that upon my return to the Fire Nation, both my people and my armies will feel the same.

Is anyone else still having trouble with symptoms from that awful virus, or is it just me?

This has nothing to do with that plague; I wasn't even in the capital when it--

Father, I need to speak with you at once.
What is the purpose of these secret posts, exactly? From what I've seen there's no real point to them, and they seem to cause more drama than "fun". I can literally only think of one secret that actually ended up being useful to me, and in that case I still don't really know why the maker didn't just tell me directly.
bentflame: (in charge)
Rufus ShinRa- I trust that you've done the intelligent thing and moved out of the house that you were illegally occupying. In case you need assistance, a group of soldiers has been sent out to help you. Now, I'm sure that no unpleasantness will be necessary, but you should know that they have been told to use force if warranted.

In other, more general news- just what, exactly, is this? I really am at a loss.
I have come to the conclusion that Christmas is idiotic.

And don't give me any more of that 'peace and goodwill' nonsense. )

Fire Nation holidays are much more purposeful- and probably a good deal more enjoyable, too.
bentflame: (hair-twirl)
It has become readily apparent that hospitals are even more dull when you're not the one admitted. The war effort is decidedly uneventful at the moment, I'm not a fan of television, and there's only so many books one can read before even that becomes boring.

Someone; anyone. Amuse me.
So. It seems I'm alive after all- which, I'm sure, is an unfortunate thing for most of you. Rest assured, you all have my sincerest apologies.

OOC: Yue, I'll still finish that RL, but Azula would get back on her feet pretty quickly. XD

I don't understand why people dream. When they're asleep, I mean. It all seems rather pointless. There's the spiritual aspect (for people who are foolish enough to believe in that sort of thing), I suppose- that dreams give you "answers" to problems or questions. That's entirely ridiculous, of course. After all, I don't have any problems or questions- none that are major, anyway- and yet I still have the most irritating dreams about the most idiotic things.
Granted, it was only once. This time. But if possible, I'd like to prevent it from happening again. It was... unsettling.

... Hm. Dream prevention. I'll have to look into that.
Really, the most irritating thing isn't his words. The opinions of others mean absolutely nothing; I'm certainly never lying when I say that. He'd like to think that he can get under my skin, and I'll admit that I've slipped up a couple of times in that regard- but that has been taken care of; it won't happen again. No, the most irritating thing is that he's right.

I doubt that it's fear. It would be characteristic of her, I suppose, to fear me- but for some reason, she doesn't. I also doubt that she's just "waiting to see me fall"- that could easily be done from the sidelines. It's that third theory of his that I've considered before (I hope he doesn't think for one moment that he planted the idea in my head; that I allowed him to create such an... insecurity). That she really, truly hasn't realized yet that I am a monster. At some level, I'm sure she does (why else would she have said...)- but once she starts listening to those other friends of hers; really listening to them...

Ty Lee has always been easily convinced of things.

I am a monster. I always have been. I've never denied it. But I don't know why the idea of her recognizing it and calling me out on it is so... tsk.

It's an inevitability. I shouldn't bother deluding myself into thinking otherwise.


That smug detective really does need to be taught a lesson.
bentflame: (eye-roll)
I will be leaving the Fire Nation very shortly. Call it an extended vacation. Don't bother asking where I am going, because you're certainly not going to get an answer.

Despite my absence, I wouldn't advise anyone using this as an opportunity to attack the Fire Nation- my father will still be there, after all, as will the army. I will be in contact with my country at all times, and will be prepared to return on a moment's notice should the need arise. However, I would be quite unhappy should something like that happen, and when I am angry things tend to be quite a bit worse for the offending party.
