    Summary

    Mai has moved to the Lower Rung of Ba Sing Se to seek treatment and has started her own academy for children that cannot afford schools in the better parts of town.

    After three years of living an alternate reality in Ba Sing Se, her experience of life in the Lower Rung is about to reach a crescendo that includes her estranged boyfriend (and Fire Lord) Zuko and an organised crime grid functioning in the underbelly of the city.

    Note - Tags make it sound much harsher and darker than it is. I just wanted to be absolutely certain in providing fair content warning. No graphic depictions. Heavy themes.

    Summary

    The sun and the moon are opposites. The Fire Nation and the Water Tribes are opposites. Fire and water are opposites. Summer and winter are opposites. Princes and peasants are opposites. Zuko and Sokka are opposites. So, naturally, they don’t mix. Not ever. Not even if Sokka keeps going back, lying to himself by saying that it’s just for information and that he’s not totally and completely falling in love with a Fire Nation prince.

    Or: Sokka finds Zuko at Pao’s Family Tea House, accidentally-kinda-maybe falls in love under the pretense of gathering information and thinks that maybe him and Zuko aren’t that different after all.

    Summary

    Kai had been tending to the sick of Ba Sing Se her whole life, but she had never seen a fever like this. Wiping the sweat from Lee's forehead was a fruitless effort as it spilled from beneath his shorn hair. She slid down the blanket to reveal his bare chest and laid a gentle hand down to feel his heartbeat. Kai screamed in pain before she could find a pulse, flying backward and knocking over her bucket of water as she gripped her burning hand to her heart, backing into a vase a shattering it in her shock. The loud commotion instantly summoned the boy's uncle who appeared in the doorway. Kai looked at the old man wide-eyed. She could feel the blood pulsing through her blistered hand and looked down to see the tender red skin across her palm. She held out the damaged hand to the old man.

    "You're not who you say you are."

    Ever since the incident, Kai was aware of Iroh and Zuko's true identities. She helped around the tea shop and kept Zuko company, much to his delight, but when Zuko betrayed Kai and returned to the Fire Nation with Azula, Kai finds herself being scarred by the selfishness of the boy she once thought she was falling in love with.

    Summary

    A collection of Zuko and Sokka’s letters to each other during Zuko’s diplomatic missions in the Earth Kingdom. They write about their respective lives in the Earth Kingdom and the Fire Nation and how much they realize that living with a partner makes a difference in keeping them sane.
    Post-canon modern AU where Sokka moves to the Fire Nation for love and moves in with Zuko. Zuko is a Fire Nation diplomat to the Earth Kingdom. Sokka works in Master Piandao's forge.

    Summary

    After the fall of Ba Sing Se, Azula noticed Zuko acting differently.

    Perhaps that's what three years of banishment and a life-long scar does to someone, but not to Zuko. Azula knew that well enough.

    So, what exactly happened in Ba Sing Se?

     

    (Or the one where Ba Sing Se was just a one-month stopover to everyone but Zuko and Sokka.)

    Summary

    In Ba Sing Se, Sokka is left alone to help the King. When he finds Zuko by accident one day, green robes and a teapot in his hand, he doesn't quite believe what he's seeing.

    And when they're sitting under the moonlight, hands intertwined and breathing softly weeks later, he doesn't quite believe it either.

    (Something about vulnerability, trusting your instincts and growing up together)
