    Summary

    Summary

    After his duel, Zuko had fled to the Earth Kingdom where he has been living for the past 3 years, living as a farmer and a healer after being adopted by a nice Earth Kingdom family, presumed dead by the Fire Nation when disappearing while injured, giving Iroh a chance to keep Azula from staying loyal to her father. Given a chance to heal & find people who genuinely care about him with no ties or loyalty to his father, he is able to be saved from growing bitter and jaded after years of failing at a mission. Using his alias as The Blue Spirit as a healer who has learned to use firebending to heal as opposed to as a thief and assassin, he is able to influence views on firebending from both the Earth Kingdom and Water Tribes as wells as firebenders themselves. He comes across the Gaang in the harbor town he has been living in, connecting with them as a healer who still remembers how to fight from what his life used to be, joining their cause before they even reach the Northern Water Tribe.

    This is a series, I have posted a summary at the end of the 1st part if you don't want to read Zuko's recovery arc. I would suggest reading it, but it isn't plot heavy and I'm not here to tell you how to live your life.

    Summary

    “Li, table five needs your attention.” Pao urged him from behind the counter.

    His heart climbed in his throat and thundered until his breath drew short. Panic crept like a tight band around his chest as bright blue eyes followed him the way a hawk tracks a meadow vole through the brush from its perch. It was a sensation Zuko rarely felt since he left the Fire Nation all those years ago. The feeling of being prey in someone else’s eyes. The feeling of being pinned to the spot, unable to force himself to move or breathe. He wanted to flee, to race out the back of the tea shop and rush back to the safety of their cramped tidy apartment and pretend the water tribesman had never even entered the shop, but it was too late. He was watching Zuko with expectancy.

    Suddenly the carefully crafted life he had built here in Ba Sing Se was teetering daintily on crystal foundations. All it would take is one strike to topple it all until only the shattered remnants remained for him to cut himself on.

    “I’m surprised to see you here.” The tribesman greeted warmly, his voice twisted up with an edge of amusement.

    Summary

    See, the thing is— Agni fucking damnit— Zuko doesn’t regret helping Sokka rescue Hakoda from Boiling Rock. It was a step in the right direction, a display of loyalty, a step towards forgiveness. (Zuko doesn’t pale at the thought of loyalty. He doesn’t. He’s just tired, is all, tired and possibly dehydrated.)

    However. He will concede that he may have inadvertently fucked himself over, because in the days and weeks after the rescue, Hakoda won’t stop looking at him with something like disappointment in his eyes. That’s not good. It’s really not good, actually, and in fact, Zuko might as well be dead where he stands. Well. He’s had a good run. Not really, but it’s easier if that’s what he tells himself. If he’s lucky, it won’t be too hard to find another firebending teacher for Aang, and—

    Oh Agni. Oh fuck. He’s coming over. Smile, Zuko, smile for Agni’s sake, back straight, chin up, not too much, be non-threatening as possible— smile, Agni damnit, it won’t be as bad if he’s polite—

    “Hey there. You seem a little pale, are you alright?”

    It takes everything Zuko has to suppress a nervous laugh. He is really and truly fucked.

    Summary

    Images flashed in front of him, just as the whispering ceased.

    A glowing boy in an iceberg, a crowd of people bowing to him, even more cheering, Azula chained to the gutter, his father's corpse being burned with four people in attendance, someone named Kiyi, a bearded man and a woman who looked like Mai naming their son Iroh, a new nation, him standing in front of Sozin's portrait while Azula jeered, him confronting his father, him hugging a tattooed boy, a pair of siblings fr-


    They say that the Firelord murdered his son in cold blood with a cold gaze. They say that it is a pity, for the boy was a failure. They know that they must say what is expected of them.

    What they do not know, or say is that the boy lives.

    Summary

    Just a simple modern college au with a reverse Hanahaki disease where the person someone has a crush on grows flowers. Zuko drinks a lot of tea, they watch Mamma Mia, Zuko takes care of Sokka when his leg hurts, they eventually confess their feelings and kiss.

    “I’m sorry the person who likes you hasn’t told you yet,” Zuko says softly, willing the guilt not to show in his expression or his voice....
    Sokka takes this apology as more confirmation that it can’t be Zuko, it wouldn’t make sense. This was the final nail in the coffin that he needed, he was never going to tell Zuko that it was him that had the crush, he’d get over it on his own.
    “Yeah… thanks, buddy.”

    Summary

    It has been said that when the time came, one day you would look into a mirror and see someone else. Not just anyone else, but your soulmate. Agni would show you your soulmate, your soulmate would see you too, and the two of you would be reunited. It was a beautiful, sacred affair, to find your other half in your lifetime. A time when you needed the other the most.

    Zuko couldn't agree less. Zuko would greatly appreciate it if someone would explain to him why the idea of meeting his soulmate when he least expected it was supposed to be a good thing! It sounded like the worst thing that could ever happen to him! He didn't want to be 'known'. He didn't want to be 'found'. He didn't want to meet his soulmate period. End of discussion. No thank you, come back never. Go bother someone else.

    There was just one problem Zuko hadn't considered. Why did Sokka have to be so handsome??

    Summary

    He sets the tea down gently and-

    Thud

    Zuko nearly jumps out of his skin. There’s no way that was his teacup. It sounded close. His eyes dart around the room and he hears a single quiet knock at the door. Zuko silently speeds his way to the door and grabs one of his dao swords off the wall mount. He slowly peeks out of the peephole and sees nothing. If this is some ding dong ditch situation, he’s going to be pissed.
    He grabs the doorknob tentatively, adjusting his grip on the sword in his other hand. He knows he’s probably overreacting but it’s 3 am on a Tuesday. Not exactly the best time for unannounced visits.

    He turns the doorknob slowly and is immediately pushed back by the weight of the door against him like someone is pushing it open from the other side. Zuko instinctively jumps back and grips the sword with both hands. His eyes try to find the source.
    A large body falls halfway across the threshold of his doorway. Like the person was sitting on the ground with their back against the front door. The person fell back onto the ground when the door was opened.

    What.
