    Summary

    Don't we all wonder what would happen if the butterfly flapped its wings differently?
    What would have changed if the Prince had decided differently at the crossroads? The end result might have been the same , but sometimes, what matters is what is gained from the journey itself.
    Follow to see what would have happened if Prince Zuko had changed his path sooner.

    I don't own ATLA or the characters except for some I have made up.

    Summary

    [“You must know the pain of losing your firstborn,” Azulon had said. “Look for a suitable guardian for the boy, or give him to Iroh, if you’re so worried about the line of succession. I’m sure you’ve been training your son adequately; he should be able to catch up to Lu Ten soon enough.”

    Giving Zuko to Iroh wouldn’t be enough, no – the boy would still be in the palace, still a wrench in his plans, a weakness to eliminate some way or the other.]

    Or, the one where Piandao adopts Zuko.

    Summary

    “Zuko was weak.
    Azula excelled at everything. Zuko excelled at nothing.
    Azula was a firebending prodigy. Zuko would probably burn himself with his own fire if it was possible.
    Azula was four. Zuko was eight, yet he struggled with most things she was already able to do.
    Azula’s skin was soft and white: untouched. Zuko’s was rough, red and ridden with scars. Scars that he deserved because there was nothing Zuko was good at.”

    OR:

    Zuko can’t do anything right. But when Piandao teaches him the way of the sword, he finds his talent as well as a safe haven he could flee to when the world becomes too much.

    Prequel to Lost and Found, a yet to be published AU in which Aang leaves the ice nearly two hundred years after the genocide.

    Summary

    “I hope you are well,” Iroh’s letter had read, “The present situation is strange. Zuko has convinced The Avatar that he has a twin brother who is loyal to him. If asked by the appropriate people, I request that you go along with this lie.”

    Summary

    The world is filled with numerous little hazards, but none more deadly than the assorted dragons that plague every forest, mountain and shore.

    The Fire Nation is best known for its proficiency in training the warriors of every town, village, and tribe of the known lands. Every Prince, Princess, and Firelord has had their opportunity to train and kill their first dragon by the age of fifteen.
    All except Prince Zuko.

    When Prince Ozai shoots down a shadow in the night and doesn't even notice, his son takes off after it and sets into motion more than he, or anyone around him, could have ever dreamed of.

    Summary

    For his crimes against the Fire Nation, Prince Iroh was sentenced to death. Of course, Zuko couldn't let that stand, and so his faceoff against the Fire Lord happened sooner than expected. Zuko escaped with a charge of high treason to his name and a reward on his head. Like mother like son, Zuko decided to disappear. With a new face, a new name, and an old dream, Zuko knocked on Master Piandao's door.

    Little did he know that a certain Water Tribe warrior, weighed down with a promise to his father and a slowly-deteriorating self-esteem, was not too far behind.

    In hindsight, considering the look of sheer horror on Zuko's face when he saw Sokka standing next to Piandao, "childhood friends" was not the story Sokka should have gone with.

    Summary

    “oh,” sokka murmurs, as if zuko resting one of the softest lines of john keat’s letters to fanny brawne on his desk wasn’t the absolute worst way to confess his love, “i didn’t know you felt that way.”

    zuko doesn’t miss the way sokka omits the word too, and suddenly, their dorm feels like there’s only room for one.

    Summary

    “nah,” he mumbles, around the cigarette, “that’s my superpower.” he snaps his fingers and his cigarette lights, his firebending sending sparks into the sky. 

    the woman grins, looking quietly amused, and zuko feels something click in his chest, like cracking his neck or snapping a pen cap back into place. something about this, about talking to the woman beside him, feels right. not that he’s going to put the sentiment into words. not that he would know how.

    Summary

    Zuko is seven when his mother first introduces him to the concoction of deadly poisons.

    (The palace sits on an intricately woven, fragile foundation of backstabbing snake-eyed councilmen; disloyal, mistreated servants who turn at a thumb of silver; cold-hearted royals wreathed in red and gold flames.

    Knowing how to slip nerium oleander into a nobleman’s stash of richly sweet sake, or learning the most effective mixtures of crushed herbs that ends in a boneless corpse at the rise of dawn won’t hurt the children raised by war.)

    She demonstrates more than once.

     

    or: ursa teaches him poisons, piandao teaches him swords, ozai teaches him silence, and azulon takes advantage.

    Summary

    Madness had always been a silent companion to the royal family.

    With Ursa gone, Ozai turns to her son, and something inside him snaps, an ugly idea that coils in his mind like a snake and tells him to make something unspeakable of his son.

    Prince Zuko dissappears in the eve of his father's coronation, and in his stead, the servants gossip about the new wife Firelord Ozai seems to keep secluded in his rooms.

    Summary

    [Zuko wonders if he’s doing things out of order. He’s done it before, while getting his motivations and life goals in order, completely muddling up the steps in between and generally making a mess before actually committing to the right (or best) choice. He wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what he did, again. This time, though, it doesn’t feel like he’s doing things out of order – not that he has any frame of reference, but he’s happy so it probably shouldn’t matter, right?

    He has to admit, though, Jin’s the one who says it best when he visits Uncle in Ba Sing Se with a baby in his arms:

    “And what sort of sequence of events in your so-called life-changing field trip leads you to adopting a child?”]

    -

    Or, the one where Zuko tries to play matchmaker and accidentally adopts a child along the way.

    You don't choose adoption, adoption chooses you. For Piandao and Jeong Jeong (happily married old men who just want to enjoy their quiet life being saps and keeping bees) it manifests through a phone call fron the local café and a scarf-clad child.
