    Summary

    Early canon divergence:

    Zuko arrives at their South Pole village a few days earlier than canon, which spirals to him believing (briefly) that Katara is the Avatar. As she's on his ship, they form the beginnings of friendship and understanding. He has to deal with his feelings, and the shock of a young avatar, and face some deeper truths about himself and his family. Aang is forced to accept the seriousness of the state of the world, as he and Sokka work to rescue her and then make a plan for what to do next.

    This will roughly follow book 1. It is a Zuko-centric fic following his development, pushed along by Iroh being a more active mentor; it is also a slow-burn (really, really slow) love story between Zuko and Katara, as they realize how similar they are and how they balance each other.

    Summary

    As the eldest son of the chieftain he was tasked with protecting the village when his father left to aid in the war. As an older brother, he has to take care of his younger siblings Sokka and Katara. After their mother was killed, too much changed. He didn't have time for fun and games with war on their borders. To keep his remaining family safe he had to close off his heart and train relentlessly for the battle he knew they'd face eventually. The Avatar wasn't coming back. Or at least, that's what Ayaan thought, until a bald kid with blue arrows showed up.

    Summary

    It's been five years since Sokka and Suki's fraught breakup. They haven't seen each other since then, but when Aang and Katara get married, the wedding provides the perfect venue for a long-awaited reunion. It doesn't take long for old feelings to rekindle, except reconciling isn't quite as simple as it may at first seem, and now Sokka and Suki have to figure out if it's even possible to find their way back to each other.

    Summary

    When news of the war's end reached the South Pole it was too little too late, at least for Sokka, Katara and their family. At two years later, Kya's death still left them floundering on a cracked foundation as they struggled to cope with growing up without their mother. But the rest of the world rejoiced, and time moved on.

    Then, eight years later, the Fire Nation returned to the shores of the Southern Water Tribe, this time bearing a letter from the Fire Lord himself. A request was made for an Omega of high standing to be sent back to the Fire Nation capital of Caldera with the intent of being wed to the Crown Prince. In exchange, gifts of valuable resources would be sent back to the Southern Tribe at regular intervals over the course of a several years.

    The only stipulation was the Omega could not be older than the Alpha in question, and at 20 years of age, Sokka fit the criteria. When faced with the possibility of bringing his homeland prosperity for perhaps the first time in decades, well, the answer was clear. Sokka would have to swallow any distaste he still felt for the Fire Nation and allow himself to be wed to a complete stranger, thousands of miles from his home, perhaps never to return.

    Summary

    Disowned and branded by his father, at the age of 21, Ozai is stripped of his titles, his family and his nation and sent to the Southern Water Tribe to serve as a concubine at the newly appointed Chief Hakoda's side. Just when Ozai thought he could achieve his freedom away from Azulon's abusive control, and seize his life from this point on, his father had one final cruelty up his sleeve for his unbeloved son.

    Inexperienced as he is, Chief Hakoda is surprised by the extended offer of a trade deal with the Fire Nation. The rather generous offer was accompanied by a gift. A concubine handpicked by Firelord Azulon, serving as a living symbol of their future alliance and the prosperity of both their nations. Unaware of the true identity of this man, Hakoda is simultaneously disturbed and surprised by the concept of keeping such a person at his side.

    As he grows to know Ozai more, the truth of his presence in the south is revealed and the lines of trust are put to the test as the former Prince seeks the freedom he's craved away from his father for so many years. But with nobody to trust and no allies to lean on, Ozai faces the very cold reality that he may just die here as Azulon expected.

    Summary

    The idea zips through her and Katara speaks before she really thinks about it. “You should come to the South Pole with me. And be my fake boyfriend.”

    “What?!” Zuko nearly chokes on his own coffee and stares at her with wide eyes.

    “It’s perfect! You won’t have to spend the Solstice alone and I won’t have to hear an endless barrage of comments from my family about me being lonely forever!”

    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.

    Summary

    It's been five years since the end of the Hundred Year War, and Fire Lord Zuko is desperately trying to restore relations with the other nations while simultaneously attempting to build back the Fire Nation in a post-conflict world. In the midst of this responsibility, the firebender's yearning to locate and bring his mother home has slowly eaten away at his sanity.

    Spurred by anguish and longing, Zuko comes to a bitter agreement with his imprisoned father, the nation's most notorious war criminal - a chance for temporary freedom in exchange for information on his mother's whereabouts. As a precaution, Zuko does not plan to travel the world with his father alone - he attempts to recruit the Avatar's waterbending master, Katara, to join him on this secret and downright impossible search, as his wife assumes temporary rule in his stead. It's two against one. Nothing could go wrong, could it?

    Toggling between the perspectives of all three characters, this journey captures the grit, desperation, nuance, and bubbling desire of truly different but equally broken individuals.

    NOTE: Expect, on average, updates every 2 weeks.
