    Summary

    "Really Azula, what could have been so stressful that you lost the war in Ba Sing Se?" Asks Ty Lee to her old friend Azula, somewhere in the confines of a Fire Nation asylum.
    Azula looks up, lightning still crackling in her eyes, tied up still in chains, and with her same snarl, the known cruelness, replies, "You haven't been through Court Politics."

    Summary

    Katara and Zuko's relationship is built to be strong after searching for Yon Rha. Sparks fly between them during their time together on Ember Island, neither act of their feelings until the Agni Kai. They kiss at the end of the battle with Azula, but in the aftermath deny their true feelings for one another. A year and dozens of letters later their attraction is put to the test during the Peace Summit in Omashu. What happens when Katara and Zuko are forced into an arranged marriage to ensure the Fire Nation will not start another war?

    Summary

    As far as General Iroh is concerned, even a member of Ba Sing Se's totalitarian, brainwashing, extremely dangerous secret police deserves to meet a special someone. It all leads to a wonderful, crazy, painful, confusing summer of love, for both an ordinary Lower Ring spice seller by the name of Rajata, and even more so for Hong Yan-the Dai Li agent who dared to differ. Lots of appearances by canon characters!

    Summary

    “I think they made a mistake when I was born. Everybody says I’m a girl but I feel like a boy. We should tell everyone I’m a prince, not a princess. Then they wouldn’t say the wrong things anymore.”

    “Zuzu, honey, you mustn’t say things like that.” His mother grabs his shoulder firmly.

    “Why not?” She doesn’t answer for a long time, gazing at the pond before finally turning back to him, the tranquility of her face contrasting with the urgency of her grip.

    “It could make people very angry.”

    “Like how Father gets angry?”

    “...Yes, your father would get very angry.”

    “Oh. Ok.”

    Summary

    Zuko, Prince of the Fire Nation has just been banished. He’s spoken out of turn, disobeyed Uncle, even disrespected Father . He’s failed the nation that he’s supposed to rule one day and deserves his punishment, not the possibility to regain his honor given to him by Father.

    Capture the Avatar? Okay. He resides in Ba Sing Se, the most heavily fortified city in the Earth Kingdom, but okay.

    Return him to the Fire Nation alive? Sure. He’s probably being trained by bending masters from around the world but sure.

    Get his honor back and learn to rule his nation with pride and justice? Fine. Azula hates him, Mother’s gone , and he looks absolutely hideous with his scar, but it’s fine.

    At least he knows where the Avatar is. After all, the Avatar is sacred. He must be protected in Ba Sing Se.

    Right?

    Or, the Fire Nation was more than thorough in their search for the Avatar, but Zuko learns early on that his honor had never been lost.

    Summary

    Across the room, Jet's gathering up empty bowls — ahem,  hiding the evidence. He grins over his shoulder at Zuko. 

    "We didn't make a bad team, did we?" he says, sitting down crosslegged across from him. His dark eyes glitter in the light coming from the lanterns. 


    "No," Zuko says, looking down at his bowl. "We didn't." 

     

    (the fic where Zuko uses his big brain cells to prevent his uncle outing them as firebenders in an Earth Kingdom city; this has unforseen consequences. Not all of them are bad.)

    Summary

    Korra is the chief of the Northern Water Tribe's daughter. While some might see that as a position of privilege, being dragged to the gates of Ba Sing Se in golden chains in symbolic tribute to answer for her Uncle's failed military campaign against the fledgling Earth Empire, it doesn't seem all that great to Korra. One woman, First Citizen Kuvira, holds her life in her hands. The Earth Kingdom typically executed such tributes, but Kuvira seems to be playing a complicated game of Pai Sho with political forces in the city, and Korra might just be a key piece of her plan. What will happen when these two meet and sparks fly?

    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.

    Summary

    Katara never meant to get mixed up in Ba Sing Se’s seedy underworld. Really, she didn’t. She was only a month into her master’s program at the university and didn’t know anyone yet. Maybe if she had some friends in the area, things would have turned out differently. But with Sokka working in Republic City and all her other friends scattered across the world, she had no one else to turn to when trouble found her. And trouble just kept finding her.

    Summary

    “My name is Joo Lee,” Zuko repeats as Aang’s friends gape at him. He doesn’t shift uncomfortably or look around at the Dai Li agents for help. He doesn’t drop that unnerving, plastic smile. It pulls at his scar in strange ways, contorting his face. Aang is almost sure a real smile from Zuko wouldn’t look like that.

    Summary

    It was getting closer to his hiding spot. Zuko hoped that thing couldn't smell his fear, or the cold sweat pouring down his face. And he prayed it couldn't open the door.

     


    Zuko, his friend from next door, and the weird kid from downstairs are shut in his apartment during a zombie outbreak; without anyone to help them, they're gonna have to fight tooth and nail for survival.

    Summary

    A childhood spent on knees and palms, looking up, always up. To the moon, or the sun, or the next step that seems impossible. A childhood stolen, and then replaced. Torn away by an old war led by old men. Azula wants better, for the children she saw when she wandered.

     

     

     

     


    The Fire Nation is a powder keg waiting to explode. Azula has been a ghost for far too long. The world might always adore a tragedy, but even more so, it loves a triumphant return.

    Summary

    What if Zuko actually DID get himself adopted by a Nice Earth Kingdom Family?

    And also everyone else he ever meets. Because lets be real, he is incredibly adoptable. Even if that means that by Fire Nation Law, the Fire Sages have to update the Royal Familytree every ten-or-so minutes.
    At least succession s guaranteed now, right?

    In which everyone has a grand 'ol time except Ozai, who somehow lost his rightful place as Fire Lord to an Earth Kingdom peasant after banishing his useless son, and Jee, who has to deal with being adopted by a Great Spirit (and also the rest of the madness. his prince keeps getting adopted by people. this is a problem).
