In The Beach, when they were asking Zuko who he was angry at, remember how Azula asked "Me ?" Remember how soft she asked and her facial expressions. She seemed so sisterly. Also when Zuko reveals he is angry at himself and she asks "Why ?" And the famous line about her mother thinking she is a monster. If you take those 3 moments in isolation, you may think Azula actually loves her brother and her mother. In the same episode Azula apologized to Ty Lee when she really didn't have to. If she didn't apologize would anything really change for in a negative way ? I doubt not apologizing would make Ty Lee turn on her. Also Azula was hurt that a boy didn't like her. That is so "human" of her.
Another interesting thing is young Azula didn't seem to care that her grandfather died or that her mom disappeared. Young Azula also didn't seem scared when Azulon ordered Ozai to killed Zuko.
Did Azula love Zuko or Ty Lee or Mai or Ozai or Ursa or Azulon ?
Did Zuko or Ty Lee or Mai or Ozai or Ursa or Azulon loves her ?
What if Zuko remained loyal to the fire nation?
Would she and Zuko get along ? If Zuko remained loyal, Mai wouldn't have to pick between Zuko and her, which then means Ty Lee wouldn't have to pick between Mai and her. Azula's feelings for her friends seemed stronger than that of her for her brother. Their betrayal led her to psychosis.
What if the fire nation would won ?
Would a fire lord Azula be happy ? Would she be loving to her brother ? Would she be supportive to Phoenix King OzI or will she try to overthrow him ?
It's hard to say who Azula loved but it is also hard to say who Azula hated. Really, who did Azula hate ? Or attitude towards Aang and the gang was not emotional.
Also, what are her motives ? Love ? Political power ?
She did seem to enjoy, for a very short time, when Ozai said she will become fire lord. But she was far from happy. If Ozai were to decide to make Phoenix queen and he just retire would that have made her happy ?
Aside from Azula, do you have problems answer for any other character in Avatar The Last Airbender:
Who does him or her love ?
What motivates him or her ?
What would make him or her happy ?
I always felt sorry for Azula. Imagine If Iroh and she were close each other, like the way Iroh and Zuko were. Under the different circumstances, Azula's life could have been different. If she felt the real love of a parent, If she had someone who helped her by standing her side when she was a child. ect.

Sorry? Azula was Ozai and Azulon's favorite born a prodigy with skills in manipulation and very athletically gifted as well. If she had received a normal childhood she may have just ended up a talented bender.
