    Summary

    The war is over and things are beginning to settle down. There is still a lot that needs to be done after 100 years of war but progress is being made. Zuko is genuinely happy for the first time in a long time. This all changes when Ozai's supporters free him from prison, taking Zuko with them. After a few days of trying to find out where Zuko is, Ozai demands his bending returned in exchange for Zuko's life, promising he would torture Zuko every day he has to wait. Trying to avoid this, the Gaang sets off to look for Zuko before something irreversible is done to him. When he is retrieved through one method or another, is so broken, Zuko is barely a man that can be recognized as their friend anymore. It will take every resource they can find to put him back together.

    In which everyone needs therapy and Zuko has severe trauma. I am bad at writing summaries but the story is better I swear.

    Summary

    "You're a firebender?" The words struck like a bell, the sounds of dawn vanishing in an instant. 

    Birds stopped chirping, the cold turned from a morning chill to a northern gust.

    Blue didn't move, didn't look at him, though it was hard to tell underneath the mask. 

    "I…" Sokka tried to find the words, source the feeling in his chest. 

    That fire had done more to ignite something in his chest.

    Summary

    "Zuko’s grip loosens on the bottle. It falls into the water with a splash. He watches it sink beneath the waves.

    But he doesn’t move. He just keeps… staring.

    He’s not sure what he’s waiting for."

    ---

    Zuko's encounters with alcohol, both good and bad, introduced to him by his crew and redefined by his experiences.

    (note: no alcoholism is depicted, mentioned, or even alluded to in this fic - it's just Zuko's experience with drinking and his feelings about it as time goes on)

    Summary

    When Zuko speaks out in the War Room at thirteen, Iroh doesn't stay silent.

    “I brought Prince Zuko into the War Room before he was ready to hear such truth, and I am to blame for his disrespect.”

    It's a risk. He has no desire to challenge his brother for the throne, only to spare his nephew the shame of a poor Agni Kai. But he has gambled before, and he is used to winning.

    Summary

    "Maybe we do understand each other.
    All this time, was he the balance I needed?
    Am I the balance he needs?"

    Trauma and corruption pervade the post-Hundred Year War world. Fire Lord Zuko, though trying his best to undo the imperial systems of the Fire Nation and atone for crimes committed, is rendered nearly catatonic by the pain and trauma that haunt him. Water Tribes Ambassador Sokka suffers from intense feelings of uselessness, wandering aimlessly and without purpose. The disgraced former Fire Nation princess Azula wastes away in an institution, isolated from any she loves or who love her.

    Omashu Ambassador Mai finds herself responsible for maintaining political stability in this collapsing reality. In a complex scheme with Iroh and others, she manages to unite Zuko and Sokka to heal and restore each other, in addition to bringing Azula back into the fold.

    Can Sokka and Zuko be the balance each other needs? Can Azula be redeemed and serve a purpose in the making of the future? What sort of future can they build together?

    Summary

    Life is perfect for Zuko—that's what he's striving for. After turning a new leaf and mercifully being accepted by his uncle after betraying him, Zuko wants to live a quiet, normal life. He could be the heir to a multi-billion dollar corporation, but he traded that in for a job at his uncle's boba shop and enrollment at a local public university. The past year has been a blessing—he's been going to therapy, doing well in his classes, and making good money through tips. He doesn't want any of it to change, but as he enters his sophomore year of college, someone throws him off balance—his roommate named Sokka.

    Sokka enters his freshman year of college, eager to learn. He's the first in his family to go and is graciously going without pay through an athlete's scholarship. He's looking forward to classes, and while he knows he'll do well, there's a lot of pressure. He wants to impress his classmates and have some sense of validation. He wants to patch up his relationship with his girlfriend of a couple of years, Suki. There are a lot of personal issues on his plate, but when he's around Zuko, he can't find himself to worry about those things...he makes the worry melt away.

    All until he learns he's a fire bender.

    Summary

    “Good evening Uncle,” He starts, and hesitating for a beat, Zuko dips his head in greeting to Ozai, not meeting his eyes, “Good evening, f-father.”

    He stumbles slightly on the word, because Zuko had recently stopped associating ‘father’ with Ozai and going back into that habit might actually kill him on the inside.

    If Ozai minded the slip, he doesn’t mention it. In fact, he doesn’t pay Zuko much attention, and he’s all the more grateful for it.

    Summary

    AU: In which everyone is born with flowers in their souls. As they get hurt, the flowers are stolen and instead given to whoever hurt them. If they run out, they become basically living corpses. Zuko loses his last one and Iroh is desperate to save him. That's when Zuko meets Sokka, who might just be his cure.

    Note: if you happen to have seen this prompt before, it's because I used the exact same one for an old work by the same name. I decided to scrap that and completely rewrite it with different characters, so enjoy and please don't yell at me :)

    Also, big big thanks to my co-authors:

    Summary

    Zuko is sixteen, scarred, and hunting the Avatar to restore his honor. He finds him in the South Pole, and the Avatar is exactly the old, powerful, master-of-all-elements Avatar that Zuko expected. Except it's still Aang.

     

    The episodes are getting more in-depth, so I am splitting them up to keep a decent length and semi-regular schedule for updates. The holidays might slow me down a little, but I am so excited to see where this goes.
