    Summary

    Never mind that he won’t be of age for another year-and-then-some. Never mind that he’s sixteen with bandages still wrapped around his chest and a more intimate knowledge of war than these men will ever have. He wasn’t old enough for his first Agni Kai. He isn’t old enough for the crown. No one batted an eye then, they don’t now. The prayer shawl is a familiar weight on his shoulders. 

    (Youth is no excuse, the generals hiss to one another.

    You will learn respect, a palm of flames says.) 

    [Or: the war is over and it should be a relief.]

    Summary

    It took a long time for him to calm down, to stop screaming and thrashing and demanding to know just what exactly happened. Through his hysteria, Father managed to give a rushed sequence of events – bad information, an ambush, Earth benders, no one else in the mission survived and they did not think Lu Ten would either, except the boulder fell strangely, crushed his arm, but staved off enough bleeding to keep him alive until healers arrived, he was lucky. Not that Lu Ten felt lucky.

    OR

    Lu Ten survives, but his arm does not, leading to Zuko becoming his temporary scribe while he learns to write with his non-dominant hand; at the same time, he starts realizing family doesn't mean the same thing to everyone

    Summary

    Ultimately, Zuko started off his banishment as a thirteen year-old child who had just been severely traumatized. This is a collection of stories revolving around the idea that Zuko's crew, a bunch of full-grown adults, would absolutely see him and immediately feel an overwhelming urge to nurture this poor kid.

    Not necessary to read them all or to read them in order!

    How was Zuko to find his way, to create a place for himself among people who had no reason to trust him? It didn't help that the Avatar and his companions frankly bewildered him more often than not. Originally written in 2011.
