    Summary

    Sokka is born with two marks, one mark indicates one of his soulmates will be from the Earth Kingdom, the other mark says his second soulmate will be from the Fire Nation. He rejects his second soulmate after his mother is killed by Fire Nation soldiers.

    Suki is born with two marks, one mark indicates that one of her soulmates will be from the Water Tribe, the other mark says her second soulmate will be from the Fire Nation. She spends her whole life needing to prove herself to her village and to her warriors that she is loyal to them and not to the Fire Nation despite what her soulmark says.

    Zuko is born with two marks, but he doesn't know what his marks look like or what part of the world his soulmates are from because both of his soulmarks are now just scars inflicted upon him by his father when he decided that his son was weak for having soulmates in the first place and was forbidden from ever finding them.

    But fate is an unstoppable force that can transcend any and all obstacles that stand in its path. It can even allow a relationship to develop and grow from the ashes of a century-long war.

    Summary

    In the Blue Spirit, Aang never thinks to look under the Blue Spirit's mask. Who is this mysterious masked man, and why does he keep rescuing the Gaang, only to leave after every fight without a word? As the Gaang travels, their love for the Blue Spirit only grows, just as their hatred for the Fire Prince only deepens.

    What will happen when they realize that the two are, in fact, one and the same?

    Summary

    While disguised as the Blue Spirit, Zuko is caught by the Dai Li who decide to erase his memory and make him believe he is solely tea server Lee, a loyal Earth Kingdom citizen, rather than the thieving Blue Spirit. But tampering with Zuko’s memory has unintended, deadly consequences, as his inner flame is being extinguished by this new life of lies. Iroh has no idea what to do, who he can turn to, when fate delivers Katara to the tea shop. She’s not sure she can help restore Zuko’s memories, but the bigger question is… should she?

    Or -

    After his Agni Kai, Prince Zuko is officially declared dead to the world.

    Summary

    After barely surviving Azula’s lightning attack, Aang is unable to bend the elements. Recently defected Zuko takes a journey to the Spirit World to help the Avatar reclaim his mastery of the elements. All Zuko wanted to do was teach Aang firebending and help the kid defeat his father—not help Aang navigate guilt that so closely resembles Zuko‘s own. Zuko wonders why the spirits chose him for this task and how to extend a hand of friendship after he so brutally broke the promise of one given by Aang.

    Zuko gave up the obsession of regaining his honor, why did he have to help the Avatar regain his?

    Summary

    For as long as Zuko can remember, he's had the flowers in his lungs. He's kept them secret from everyone but his closest family, which hasn't always been easy, but he's had no other choice--the flowers are a sign of weakness. His father was sure he wouldn't survive long, but he's made it to 16, and he's joined Team Avatar. However, old habits die hard--can he still keep the flowers secret from them now that he's living with them?

    One day is particularly worse than the others. Zuko has a flare-up.

    Important notes: it's complete! it has a HAPPY ending! nobody dies! I was trying to use the concept of "flowers for unrequited love" without getting bogged down in crying about being forever alone. I repeat: HAPPY ENDING

    Summary

    Rough hands grasped Zuko's arms and hauled him to his feet, pulling his hands back and clamping something cold around his wrists. He gasped as the fires within him froze, the temperature in his hands immediately dropping as his chi thrashed uselessly against the metal. His body was unresponsive as the soldiers dragged him back towards the ship, but he managed to meet his uncle's eyes and shake his head.
    Go.


    AU after Book 2 episode 1. Azula succeeds in capturing Zuko, but Iroh escapes her grasp. The banished prince soon realises exactly how unwelcome he is amongst both the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdom, to devastating consequences. Meanwhile, with his nephew's life on the line, Iroh turns to his last hope of help: the Avatar.

    Summary

    Phoenixes are things of legends.

    It’s said that when a firebender is born a phoenix they are spirit touched.

    They are intertwined with the future of the world. When a phoenix is born, it’s a sign of great change. Of luck.

    Ozai hadn’t believed in their existence.

    Then Zuko was born.

    Summary

    Zuko has these...things. They're pretty dumb, because he knows that his mom won't die if he doesn't flip the pillow five times. He knows the gang wont get attacked if he only steps two times before walking into the campfire.

    He just...has to. He hates it. It makes him weak.

    The gaang think something different though.

    Summary

    "If people from the crew weren’t looking at him with narrowed eyes and suspicion, their expressions were mournful, eyebrows knitted together in sympathy. What caused this thirteen year old boy to be banished and injured? They’d think as he’d pass. But Zuko was no charity case. He was here for a reason, and he’d do anything to restore his honor."

     

     

    Or when Zuko has a lot of internalized homophobia and toxic masculinity from living in the Fire Nation his whole life, and Sokka (along with the rest of the gAang) have to show him the error of his ways.
