    Summary

    The Painted Lady was growing suspicious. Every time The Blue Spirit disappeared, Zuko was nearby. And now he has the pacifier from the baby they just rescued. Before she could question him, Zuko panicked and hugged her saying he follows the fights because he's in love with her. Unfortunately for both of them, that was the exact moment Ozai barges in.

    And that's how The Painted Lady got invited to dinner.

    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.

    Summary

    Zuko had scratched against the wrist of the hand he had used to burn him, nails digging into his skin hard enough to draw blood.

    Till this day, he still has the marks to prove it. That was the most amount of damage Zuko had managed to do to him, he thinks with a scoff.

    Imprisoned, no longer able to bend fire, Ozai laments on his relationship with Zuko

    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 the new Fire Lord who happens to be the missing nephew of Aang's firebending teacher, Iroh constantly has a headache, and, sure, maybe the world hates the Fire Nation, but the Fire Nation LOVES Zuko, and he can work with that.

    Summary

    Vignettes from Zuko's life dealing with his hair. That's it.

    The graphic depiction section is the aftermath of the Agni Kai, so if you won't want to read about poor little burn-victim Zuko dealing with burn trauma, I've set that section apart with a row of hashes: ##### because yeaaah I got a little gross in there.

    Healing from trauma as depicted by hairstyle choice! And maybe a tiny hint of Zukka there at the end, if you squint. At the very least, Zukka friendship.

    Summary

    There was a time when Zuko truly believed that he would never be happy. When capturing the Avatar and returning home seemed like an impossible feat. When he was adrift on the ocean or starving in the desert or sweeping the floors of a dank tea shop in the slums of Ba Sing Se. When his face was burned by the same hand that used to gently stroke his head and he was banished from his homeland at thirteen. But, after many agonizing years, he learned how to be happy. He let his friends show him the way. At first, the emotion felt almost foreign, and it startled him. He had been living in fear and anger for so long that he knew no other way to be. But slowly, gently, it filled him up, seeping into his bones and allowing him to become the ruler his uncle always knew he could be, one who ruled with both decisive strength and steadfast compassion.
