    Summary

    Katara hates heat. She probably hates it more than most; not that she doesn’t have a good reason.

    Zuko, on the other hand, radiates heat from his very core.

    Stupid Firebender.

    Summary

    When the Hundred Years' War ended, Sokka and Prince Zuko did not part as friends; instead they were always bitter rivals. In Sokka's eyes, anyway. Years later, he still harbors his grudge, and Zuko still strides around like he's perfect - which is exactly the problem.
    It isn't such a big deal, until the Crown Prince Lu Ten invites the Southern Water Tribe to his wedding, and Sokka must represent Cheif Hakoda at the ceremony and reception. It isn't such a big deal, until he and Zuko nearly come to blows and ruin Lu Ten's wedding cake.
    To prevent panic and international strife, Sokka and Zuko feign a doting friendship, and Sokka perhaps begins to see Zuko in a different light.

    Summary

    The young prince is about to roll his eyes at the crowd but then he makes eye contact with him. He is stunning. He has stormy silver eyes that have a playful glint to them, a stunningly bright smile, and a sharp jaw. He is tall, only an inch or two shorter than Zuko, and muscular. He isn’t bulky or anything, but his body is toned and defined. He has his head shaved and he has bright blue arrow tattoos running down his head and arms. He isn’t sure if they cover anything else because of his robes but they make him look exotic. He looks the monk over and notices that he is wearing simple bright orange and yellow robes. The robes expose his left shoulder and part of his broad, toned chest. Zuko feels his throat get dry and his face starts to heat up. Well this could be bad. Or...…

    AU fanfiction. It takes place in a world where the hundred-year war hasn’t happened. Aang still masters airbending at the same age. He was told about his Avatar status at Twelve still because he accidently bended water. He started Avatar training immediately after that. Now four years later he is being trained in fire by Zuko.

    Summary

    Though Katara's family no longer has the standing they once did, she prides herself on her charm and ability to get along with everyone in the small society of their county. Except, that is, the taciturn, ill-tempered Mr. Zuko who has just taken up residence at Caldera Court. Despite trying their best to see as little of each other as possible, Katara's friends and associates have no interest in maintaining distance from the man she finds so distasteful. For Mr. Zuko's part, he would love to honor Miss Katara's wishes, except there is something quite alluring about the young woman that he does not wish to examine further. But in a town as small as theirs, avoiding someone is nearly impossible, especially when family is involved.

    This is not based on any specific Jane Austen novel or Regency era work, but takes inspiration from all of them.

    Summary

    There was no way he was seeing any of this right. Absolutely not. He must have-- ah, what did Sokka say it was called again? Midnight Sun Madness?
    Yes. That.
    There was absolutely no way the absolute love of his life was now kneeling before him, holding out an engagement necklace. A gorgeous, hand-carved engagement necklace.
    Those things simply did not happen. He must be dreaming, or insane.
    Yet here he was, holding the delicately braided leather cord as Sokka shuffled closer and cupped Zuko’s warm hands in his cold ones.

    The sequel to the fic "A Step (And A Ring) Too Far", in which Zuko deals with Sokka's surprise proposal :)

    Summary

    After leaving Yon Rha’s village, Zuko finds a way to draw Katara out of her distress, and she begins to seek out his company. In late night conversations, they discover themselves and each other.

    This story picks up after The Southern Raiders and carries through and past the series—at some point in the middle, leaving canon behind. Because these two intense kids deserve the chance to feel known, banter with a worthy opponent, examine the legacy of the world they’re fighting for, and—of course—fall in love.

    Summary

    Zuko was especially glad for the mask tonight. He was not entirely sure what expression would be on his face were she to see him. Then again, she wouldn’t be talking to him like this anyway.

    Or: a brief collection of moments from the Blutaraverse through Zuko's eyes.

    Summary

    All that time, all the years in high school and through college Zuko had prevailed in compartmentalising when it came to his relationship with Sokka. Because they were friends and Zuko didn’t know what he’d do if he lost Sokka because of something stupid like feelings. So he’d often put his thoughts of how handsome or how pretty Sokka looked in a little velvet box. He’d tie his imaginary love letters in a bow, and catch the butterflies in his stomach with a net for safekeeping.

    Some people might call it unhealthy. Zuko just thought of it as a coping mechanism.

    Summary

    Sokka is the sun, bright and blinding and entirely too much for Zuko to handle. Sokka is the moon, and Zuko is being pulled by his tide. He can’t survive with him, and he can’t survive without him.

    or; Zuko knows Sokka doesn't love him. That doesn't stop him from wishing.

    Summary

    He knows that glint. It always appears in Katara’s eyes just before she does something mischievous. Sometimes this involves a certain degree of innocence, like when she dunked an entire bowl of salt into Sokka’s juice during breakfast and he spit it out all over the table.

    But when she’s looking at him like that—

    Well.

    It feels distinctly less innocent. Especially considering her last visit.
