Zhao has plenty of secrets to hide. Like any sleazy, corrupt and ambitious man, he has his own tricks to climb the military and social ladders.
But there are other secrets, like a certain weakness for cake.
This contest is all about finding what Zhao has to hide.
It could be serious business. Perhaps his dreams to take over the fire nation from Ozai.
Or maybe he doesn't want anyone to know that in private, he enjoys the new Red Dead Revolver game, is a fan of the Twilight books or doesn't mind a little karaoke session every once in a while.
It's all up to you to come up with the most serious or silliest Zhao secret.
There will be two categories: one for prose and one for illustrations. This one is open to members only. You can enter in either or both category, but can only win once.
Though preference should be on animation!Zhao, movie!Zhao will also be accepted.
The admiral will bribe you to keep those secrets (and if the bribes don't work, he may just have to silence you another way):
1st and 2nd place in both category will receive the awesome Avatar: The Art Of The Animated Series art book.
3rd and runner up in both categories will receive a copy of the Zuko Prequel manga.
The contest will last for the whole month of June and will end on July 6th, a few days after the movie's opening weekend.
We will leave you now with an obvious secret:
Movie!Zhao has sideburns envy.
He can't take his eyes away from Ozai's artistically back curving sideburns, even when the firelord orders him "hey! Look up! My eyes are up here!"
