    Summary

    For Firelord Zuko and Ambassador Sokka, the war has ended and they spend their days now, four years after peace has flourished across the land, putting down cells of Ozai's sympathizers and forging their relationship behind closed doors. When the Gaang takes up a mission to squash the very last of Ozai's supporters, Zuko and Sokka are caught in a collapsing tunnel and buried alive. Seemingly escaping the kiss of death, they wake to a world that is not their own.

    At the behest of spirit dabbling, both Sokka and Zuko are thrown into an alternate reality that mirrors their own. Sixteen again, they face the massive jarring changes of what could have been their lives had the war gone differently. Aang never woke up from the iceberg. The Southern Waterbenders were never targeted and the Southern Tribe is a close twin to the North's elitist personality. Iroh never lost Lu Ten to the siege of Ba Sing Se and the strangest change of all, Ozai is a loving parent to his beloved son.

    Together, Sokka and Zuko need to find a way back to their own world and bodies, and figure out what the spirits intended for them in this strange dreamlike world.

    Set in a non-bending AU, Azula and Katara are emerging Pai Sho prodigies, destined to eventually battle for the title of world champion. Covering an entire decade of their lives, this is a story about how their initial rivalry grows into mutual respect and friendship, before blossoming into something much more than that. Heavily inspired by the Netflix show The Queen’s Gambit. Most of our favorite ATLA characters are Pai Sho players.

    Summary

    [Hakoda was not sure what he expected to find in this slowly approaching Fire Nation sailboat, but what he did find was certainly very far down on the list: A young boy, perhaps younger than his own son, with a bandage covering his eye, shaking violently in a fever-induced delirium.

    “What does this mean?” Bato said, using the dull end of his spear to poke the boy's shoulder.

    “Mom,” The boy weakly cried.

    “I have no idea,” Hakoda said, feeling every bit as horrified as he always did when he learned something new about the Fire Nation.]

    Or,

    With Iroh wandering the globe after the death of his son, some of the events of Avatar: The Last Airbender get off to a late start— and get a little tangled along the way.

    Summary

    Ten years after Katara's adoption into the Fire Nation, her secret- that she is the Avatar- largely remains hidden. Raised by Master Piandao, she's led as normal a life as possible growing up, while clandestinely being prepared by the Order of the White Lotus to assume her role and duty as the Avatar when she comes of age.

    But secrets cannot last forever. When her true identity is discovered, sixteen year old Katara has to make a difficult choice: flee the place she's come to view as her home, or be revealed to the Fire Nation as an enemy. Her choice and its consequences will lead her far from the place she's come to call home, chased by a ghost from her own past, and finding new allies and enemies along the way.

    Summary

    The title is pretty self explanatory. This is a series of snapshot scenes and excerpts of fics I have yet to write, or little scenes I enjoyed the thought of but they weren't long enough (over 2000 words) to justify being their own oneshots. I may eventually write them into bigger fics but for now, they're here to be enjoyed.

    Summary

    16 year old Katara Enuaraq is a student at Blackwell Academy in a fictional coastal Oregon town of Arcadia Bay. Ever since losing her mother in a car accident 2 years ago, Katara has been having trouble adjusting to the new reality, but when her father starts to date again, Katara's behavior spirals out of control.

    16 year Azula Nakamura is the perfect little district attorney's daughter, Blackwell's drama star, honor student and member of the elite Vortex Club. For years, Azula has treated Katara as invisible, while Katara has dismissed Azula as a shallow social butterfly concerned only with her popularity.

    A chance encounter under dangerous circumstances makes Azula take an interest in Katara, while Katara realizes that there's a side to Azula that she and many others aren't aware of. Will these two become positive influences on each other? Or will they instead get into an astounding amount of trouble as they spiral out of control together?

    Summary

    Five years after the war is over and Zuko hasn't stopped working a single day. The Omega, having taken on a self sacrificing attitude has already given up on all of his hopes and dreams. It's worked out for the betterment of his people but at what cost to Zuko's sanity? Things are thrown into disarray though when Bato shows up in Sokka's stead for trade negotiations, stating that the Gaang decided to go on a trip around the world without telling him because they thought he'd be too busy to come.

    Summary

    The man stared for a long time. The smile he bore had been completely wiped clean as he studied the scarring. Zuko’s skin itched with anxiety at the odd attention he was given and shot a scowl at the warrior, startling him out of his thoughts. The man offered an apologetic yet awkward smile as he patted his chest and started to speak. It took Zuko a moment to realize that what was being said was a very horribly butchered attempt at Fire Nation formal language. A horrendous introduction.

    “My name is Sokka, son of Chief Hakoda.” He introduced with what the savage may have thought was casual ease judging by the sideways smile and the warmth in his eyes. Then proceeded to ask, pointing at Zuko to get his meaning across. “Your name is Li, right?”

    ‘Okay so they don’t know who I am.’ Zuko didn’t let his sigh of relief show as he nodded slowly in confirmation.

    Or

    Zuko slips into the scouting party that is sent on a mission to gather intel on an Earth Kingdom encampment only to be ambushed by Water Tribe warriors and taken as a prisoner of war. Zuko finds himself masquerading as Private Li, the Fire Nation scout as he receives a one way trip to the South Pole.

    Summary

    Cruelty does not come naturally to (most) people, we learn it somewhere. Azula is a great example of that. Iroh talked about his childhood with Ozai and Azulon, and everyone realizes just how messed up it is. Zuko, realizing just how fucked his uncles and fathers relationships with their parents had been, sets out to see if maybe, just maybe, he can save his father like they did Azula.

    When Ozai is transferred to the Palace for, "Good Behavior," In the avatars words, all he can see is a golden cage. It doesn't help the avatar is older now, almost 18, and has grown even above himself and Zuko. But then he meets Hakoda. And learns that maybe life doesn't have to be just cruelty and Manipulation.

    And in Hakoda's defense, he never expected to fall in love with the man he was trying to help rehabilitate. But thats just life for you.

    Summary

    "Prince Zuko," Iroh began, but the prince wasn't having it. He stormed away and before he knew it he was in his quarters, flinging sparks from his fingers and hissing steam. When that passed, he aggressively lit his meditation candles and tried to calm down. It was difficult because unlike combat meditation came easily, which added insult to injury. Gentle flames licked the air and formed in his palms as well. They were warm and soothing, unlike how fire was supposed to be. Instead of stinging his skin with small burns, the flames numbed the scraps on his palms and the aches in his joints. He knew that by the time his meditation ended he would feel invigorated and new.

    His heart burned with shame; no wonder father had discarded him. There was no greater disgrace than having a son who was a healer.
