    Summary

    The war has ended. Ozai has been defeated. All that is left is to crown Iroh Fire Lord. However, it seems the Fire Sages have already crowned a new leader, one far more sinister than Sokka had first thought.

    All hail Fire Lord Zuko, trained assassin and winner of the political coup to take control of the Fire Nation.

    Summary

    The firehawk landed with the grace of its species, claws pricking Zuko’s arm where it perched, despite the thick fabric of his sleeves.

    Maybe, his father had realized Zuko was needed at home and was cutting his search short before it could truly begin, allowing Zuko to return and regain the honor he’d lost in that fateful Agni Kai.

    Zuko couldn’t help the hope that welled inside him, as he leaned against the railing and unfurled the scroll with trembling fingers.

    It was -

    It was a casualty report, with nearly two hundred names listed. Zuko stared down at the page, uncomprehending as he read the artfully penned characters, scanning the paper for something, anything to explain what he was looking at.

    Summary

    Somehow, he survives his first month on the throne, assassination attempts, and Agni Kais be damned. And then he survives the second.
    By the start of the third, Zuko thinks, I might make it to seventeen.

    (Somewhere, the spirits are laughing at him.)

    Summary

    he’s staring at his hands like he wants them to burn, like he and his hands are the cause of every atrocity to ever take root in this world. he stares at himself the same way in the mirror, she thinks.
    but as his eyes flicker to the assassin slain on the ground, she realises his tears are not for his wounds— they are for the man he has just taken a life from. she realises, he has never had this type of blood on his hands before.
    (or,
    zuko learns how to ask for help, one word at a time).

    Summary

    he doesn’t know how to say the words that stick to his tongue— the pain is like a poem without flow— like an epic without meter. it’s a wound that won’t clot, and it’s something so much greater. the words that stick used to feel like a trap, but something about it seems freeing now— a little secret that he’ll take to his grave. because he knows that in the end, not matter what, it’s the one thing he’s sure to reach.
    (or,
    zuko isn’t okay— and he doesn’t know how to reach out).

    Summary

    Never mind that he won’t be of age for another year-and-then-some. Never mind that he’s sixteen with bandages still wrapped around his chest and a more intimate knowledge of war than these men will ever have. He wasn’t old enough for his first Agni Kai. He isn’t old enough for the crown. No one batted an eye then, they don’t now. The prayer shawl is a familiar weight on his shoulders. 

    (Youth is no excuse, the generals hiss to one another.

    You will learn respect, a palm of flames says.)

    Summary

    "There a lot of things about Zuko that the servants ignore. He is half-way between skins now. He shed the old one and hasn’t grown into the new one, trapped between worlds and skins and identities. Some days he feels more like Li the war-child refugee than Zuko, the Fire Lord."

    Zuko attempts to lead his nation into peace, kicking and screaming in protest. He discovers what it means to survive a war- and a childhood- that no one ever wanted or expected him to.

    Summary

    When Zuko defeated Azula with Katara’s help they were still in an Agni Kai, and technically, since Katara had the last move to outsmart and defeat powerless and weak Azula there are theories that Katara may have won the Agni Kai.
    However, even if the council and Zuko present Katara the opportunity to become the Fire Lord she refuses, as she does not want to settle down just yet, instead she goes back to travelling around the world with Aang, Sokka, Suki and Toph to unify the world. However, there comes a time in Zuko’s reign when legal manners start putting him under pressure.
    Thus, he needs to call the ‘legal’ Fire Lord to sign a formal treaty for him to rule the Fire Nation accordingly, and it is very simple, but, if everything went down to signing a simple piece of paper then this couldn’t get to happen, right?

    Zuko and Katara’ll have to learn cooperation and rules about their kingdom and also helping it to recover while going on a journey where both will have to face insecurities, acceptance from the people and that there are certain emotions that die hard.

    Summary

    Zuko realizes his destiny much earlier. As in, as soon as he wakes up in the palace after his Agni Kai and is told he is banished. Unfortunately, he's never been a patient one. So he storms right up to Ozai and tells him what he's going to do. And gets locked up for over three years. Then, one day, he's being pulled out and told he's the new Fire Lord.

    A "Zuko never meets the Gaang and suddenly becomes Fire Lord after three years of literal torture" AU. In which the Gaang doesn't know what to think of this new Fire Lord who happens to be the missing nephew of Aang's firebending teacher, Iroh is misunderstanding a few things, and, sure, maybe the world hates the Fire Nation, but the Fire Nation LOVES Zuko, and he can work with that.

    Summary

    A list of characters both canon and original for my story 'Fractures' to simply help anyone keep track if they get confused. Updated every so often. Each update updates the status of a character that was already in the story, too.

    Note: Character Bios are now going to begin being included as time permits

    It'd be great if you'd read the actual fic, though, if you haven't!

    Summary

    It was obvious, the contrast between Prince Zuko and the majority of his family. As one often does a young child, Prince Zuko cried and yelled - not over anything serious, of course, just little things.

    Tears running down his face and lower lip wobbling dangerously after falling from a tree branch, one he wasn’t even supposed to be climbing. Shouting as he stormed away from his sister, a mocking laugh following him. Bawling loud enough to draw practically a cohort of concerned palace sentries when he nearly broke his ankle after slipping from his perch on a banister.

    Despite all of that, all of the prince’s anger and sadness, his explosive reactions and impatience with himself, Zuko would never take it out on the servants, nor any of the other staff in Caldera.

     

    Or: I couldn't resist putting a Zuko & Palace Staff story in this series. It just wouldn't be right without it.

    Summary

    On the day of that fateful Agni Kai, Zuko stands, bright and proud. Ozai may have tried to smother Zuko's flames, but he doesn't snuff him out. He cannot snuff him out. Because Zuko burns with the fury of Agni herself.

    or; Zuko doesn't waste two years looking for the Avatar, because he is too busy fighting for his people. This changes everything.

    Summary

    “Wait, Zuko! You’re a genius!”

    The firebender didn’t even need both eyebrows to show his blatant confusion.

    “We can just hold the festival ourselves!”

    “Wait, Aang—”

    “Just think about it!” Aang said brightly. “It would be a great way to show that the Fire Nation is committed to peace and unity. And it would be nice for everyone to have a chance to just loosen up! It is the five year anniversary after all.”

    [The reign of Fire Lord Zuko, as told through dragonfire.

    Featuring a century-old festival, Gaang and Wani crew shenanigans, and Zuko finally figuring out just how much he means to the people around him.]

    Summary

    Ozai has never loved anyone, and even if he had in the past, he has forgotten it. But Ozai had always demanded loyalty, and although Azula carried out his every command, he had no doubt that his daughter would betray him if it benefited her. But there was one person who had given him his undying loyalty since day one. The person who he had burned and sent away. And now he has a feeling he never had before: shame.

    And dammed he be if he’ll let his position as Zuko’s father be stolen by some water tribe chief. A position he didn’t deserve, but now wanted to have.
