    Summary

    An agonizing pain had seared through his skull as he dragged himself forward. His claws were replaced by the helpless pudgy fingers of a human's. His legs didn't move the way his own did as he crawled to his knees.

    Faintly, he could still feel the swishing weight of his tail and the raw exposed nerve in his broken horn to the open air. This lanky form was unfit for anything Zuko was accustomed to as he forced himself to wobble to his feet, searching blindly through the rolling fog that filled the tower.

    Distantly, he heard the screams of startled people as they cried out.

    "It's avatar Roku!"

    Zuko cocked his head, twisting around as his gaze swiveled in search of the Avatar. His right eye widened when he spotted his imposing figure standing in the doorway of the temple tower. A blue light pulsed off of him that radiated immense spirit energy.

    "Roku?" Zuko croaked miserably, this human voice was uncomfortable in his fragile throat. It felt raw and smoky as he breathed the syllables past his lips. Sparks licked off his tongue as he grimaced and hissed his displeasure at the sound of more shrill human screams.

    Dragon Zuko becomes a human and needs the Avatar's help.

    Summary

    A series of deleted scenes, oneshots and alternate outtakes for events from the fic Chained. This is all the wonderful ideas, backstories, short scenes and alternative "what if" scenarios I wanted to add in or couldn't choose between what I decided for in canon and what I had to set aside. Some of it is hilarious, some of it is angsty and some of it is an in-between.

    -----
    Mind the tags. Each chapter is a different scenario and will have warnings in the author's notes.

    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

    After the events of War Crimes, Sokka and Zuko have escaped Zhao’s warship and are fleeing across the Earth Kingdom. As well as unfamiliar terrain, they have to navigate their shared trauma, work out where they fit into the war, and their place in each others lives.

    Sokka is aware that being friends with the enemy is going to bring complications, but he probably should have guessed that being friends with Zuko in particular, was going to be a bit like dunking your head repeatedly into a bucket of angry Fire Ferrets.

    Katara is also grappling with the confusion of befriending an enemy, something that doesn’t prove as difficult as she had expected with the bond of shared, furious grief bridging old wounds. (Learning a new way to look at her bending doesn't hurt either)

    Azula, struggling with the Fire Lord’s mistrust, encounters a few nasty surprises and has to make some difficult decisions. Luckily, she is a great deal better at making sensible choices than her brother.

    Her father may have made a slight tactical error.

    Summary

    After his Agni Kai, Zuko flees the Fire Nation without Iroh or his crew. He finds himself stranded, alone, and injured in the Earth Kingdom when taken in and raised as a healer and farmer by an Earth Kingdom couple. He finds new ways to use his bending and to influence in the changing of the war with new understanding of himself, his bending, and the war. As someone with new perspectives and influence he is able to provide a greater understanding of being a teacher, warrior, and friend when meeting the gaang.
     Where Zuko gets to recover before using anger to protect himself

    Zuko is still in disbelief over what had happened. Sometimes not sure if he had imagined the whole thing. The pain on the left side of his face shooting through his head and down his neck is what brings him to his senses every time. Pain that is so intense that it blurs the vision in his good eye. Sometimes he can’t believe it even as the bandage completely obscures the vision of his left eye. The bandage that his hands still shake horribly from with pain as he removes it at night to clean the wound. All that time, trying to hold back tears that want to fall so badly from the pain, utter betrayal, and humiliation he feels so deep in his soul.

    Summary

    Hakoda just wants to destroy the Fire Navy, is that so much to ask?
    Apparently yes, as his second in command drags in a net containing one half drowned fire prince with a severe brain injury. He can't justify tossing him back like the crew wants, so he will just keep him prisoner until they make it to port and then he's the Earth Kingdom's problem.
    (Does it count as imprisonment if he's allowed to run around the ship as he pleases?)

    Hakoda and the crew slowly adopt a brain damaged fire prince. Just another day at sea.

    Summary

    Azula helps her father escape to be the figurehead of a Fire Nation revolution. The Gaang filters their way back to the Fire Nation to help out while dealing with, of course, the politics that comes with a newly founded Republic City and a brewing Civil War (honestly, fuck politics but it's useful too ig?)

    Set after the series and the comic books. I recommend you look at those first, but if you can't be bothered (fair enough), Azula is out of the mental asylum, the Gaang are founding Republic City, the Kyoshi Warriors are becoming diplomats/bodyguards for the Fire Nation and the Firelord and Toph is vibing with her metal-bending school.

    Swear words, because Toph.
    Lesbians, because the Kyoshi Warriors.
    Sokka Centric and Azula Centric because I'm a simp.

    Summary

    “It’s like on our fishing trips, when we’ve been out at sea so long it feels like we’ll be lost forever,” Hakoda said, his voice low. “But then we’ll turn a corner, and the beach appears, covered in those stones, all gray and smooth and stable. And we know we’ll make it home.” He turned back to face Bato. “You’re like that.”

    Bato and Hakoda, through the years.

    Summary

    Zuko Sozin has been bounced from foster family to foster family since his father burned half his face off at age 13. He's never been with a family like this one, though. This one's got two dads, foster siblings who actually seem to want to get to know him, and a high school with a yearly musical.

    This one might just be for forever. But if Zuko's learned one thing in his life, it's not to hope for that kind of luck.

    Summary

    Sokka doesn’t expect bringing Zuko home with him to go perfectly, but he also doesn’t expect to have to find a way to salvage the summer after it goes exactly as poorly as Zuko had thought it would.
    And Sokka certainly doesn’t expect the biggest obstacle to be his dad.

    Summary

    “Hakoda, can I… buy you a drink?”

    “Actually,” a deeper, rumbling voice says from behind him. “I’ve got it covered.”

    “Zuko,” Hakoda says. “This is my husband, Bato.”

    Summary

    “When I got the message,” Sokka starts hesitantly, “and from Toph at that… I thought you might be dying or something. Is everything alright? What's so important you couldn't tell us in correspondence but we had to be here?"

    "I'm getting married," Zuko smiles weakly.

    _

    A tale of pining, plotting, and idiots in love. Loosely based on the Taylor Swift song Speak Now.
