    Summary

    “They say you tried to kill the Firelord,” Hakoda says. "Why?"

    Zuko doesn’t know how to answer. Because I hate him. Because I love him. Because he wants to see the world burn. Because he knotted one hand in my hair and cupped flames against my face with the other.

    Because my mother is dead.

    Because my uncle is dead.

    Instead, he shrugs tiredly and says: “Someone has to.”

    Summary

    “When young Korra opened up that new portal, she had actually created an imbalance—small, but enough so that within the next few hundred years, the world will slowly begin to fall apart. There is more Spirit than mortal in the astral balance, and so, both are harmed.”

    “There is a way to fix it before the universe tears itself in two, but it is with great cost.”

    “I am so sorry, Zuko...the Spirits—no, we need someone who had existed before the imbalance, before Korra unknowingly ripped through the Spirit barrier, to go back and make it cease to happen in the first place. They would keep their memories, their skills...but their body, and their past world, will cease to exist, for the sake of keeping balance in the great Wheel of Time…”

    “It has to be you, Zuko.”

    Summary

    Fung isn’t sure what it is about the young man that sets him on edge, only that the second he steps into the cantina, the hairs on the back of his neck stand up.

    (AU. Zuko is a part of the Order of the White Lotus.)

    Summary

    Ursa and Ozai frame a servant for Azulon's death. Three years later, when Zuko is banished, Ursa leaves with him. It can't be a coincidence that just months after the Fire Lord's wife humiliates him so thoroughly, she is found bleeding out in a dark alley. However, before she dies, she has something very important to tell her son.

    Armed only with a gift from his uncle, a pair of swords, a mask, and the knowledge that he is Avatar Roku's great-grandson, Zuko struggles to survive on his own with no future. That is, until the Avatar returns, along with a sliver of hope for the banished prince. One way or another, Avatar Aang is Zuko's only chance to have a home or a family.

    Summary

    When a seventeen-year-old girl is sucked into the Avatar world, she doesn't know what she's getting into. To her, it's just a story, a TV show. She never thought that it would be anything like this, a world with its own unique languages, cultures, and people who are more than pieces of art. Suddenly, the thought living in a world like this at the brink of war isn't so fun anymore.

    Summary

    Iroh didn't lose his son at Ba Sing Se, and is now firelord. Zuko still lost his mother, but he was older, and it made him question the superiority of the firenation.
    Then the avatar woke up in the south, and all Zuko's carefully crafted plans... surprisingly didn't change all that much... Just another person to save.

    (Ps. this is very much a start-of-story/prompt-fic, so it wont have much substance, but anyone is welcome to pick it up, as long as they message me first)

    Summary

    Zuko doesn’t know how long he’s been in Ba Sing Se.
    “Fight,” they say, and he fights.
    “Eat,” they say, and he eats.
    “Jump,” they say, and he asks: “How high?”

    Some days, he just cries.

    Summary

    She may be a blind omega but Toph Beifong is not someone to mess with. Especially not when it comes to her family. Long Feng finds this out the hard way.

    Inspired by GOT and includes explicit torture and has a bit of a medieval vibe to it.

    Summary

    When Sokka was young his father used to tell him stories about the before times. Before the Fire Nation unleashed their armies; before the Avatar; before Bending. The boy loved the stories of how the ancient warriors of his tribe defended it with their wits, strength, and skill.
    Sometimes, Sokka could still hear the words his father whispered to him the night before he and the other men left for the war: “Sokka, it is the nature of our people to be kind, gentle, and loving. But remember, when it comes to matters of protecting our friends, our family, our pack, and our hearts, do not be afraid to show the world we are not to be trifled with. Never bow your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.”
