Zuko joins the Freedom Fighters claiming to be a nonbender from the Earth Kingdoms, growing in confidence in himself. When it is reveled that he is a firebenders, Jet is forced to understand not all members of the Fire Nation are war mongers and both boys are significantly less angsty when the Gaang shows up.

    Summary

    Following the end of the war, the gaang splits up to continue their lives in times of peace. With everyone going their own ways and Toph the only one still at the Fire Nation place (as she didn't want to return home) becomes closer friends with Zuko during this time as she decides how to pass on the skill of metal bending. She refuses to leave him alone as she watches him sink into depression at the idea of being abandoned by everyone again. Considering they have one eye and two braincells that Zuko doesn't know how to use and Toph has never tired to use between them, their friendship causes mishaps as well as growth and support as they visit each other on various occasions usually resulting in Toph making a lot of enemies as she tries to drag the Fire Lord away from his duties. Then mix a solid amount of Zuko angst into that and here we go, this thing.
    Zuko and Toph just vibe in this and have no thoughts head empty, they have the very close sibling dynamic, not dating.

    In which Zuko has far too much trauma and receives love and affection from his odd group of friends and a therapist because lets be honest, he needs one.

    Summary

    "Sokka knows that his dad totally loved his mom, he was a wreck after she passed, and he also knows his dad is a catch who deserves someone who’ll see how cool he is. He knows this, and he was prepared to watch his dad move on. Get his groove back, if you will.

    He just doesn’t know if he ever would’ve been ready for Zuko."

    -or-

    Sokka's dad brings home his young, new boyfriend for Easter. It's a lot.

    Summary

    Just what Hakoda needs in the midst of a war, an angsty teen. However, when it turns out this specific angsty teen is royalty, things could go in his favor.

    or

    Your stereotypical slowburn adoption fic but with my own take on it.

    Vaguely based on The Art of Burning.
    Also stealing some concepts from A Hundred Golden Suns.

    Summary

    This is my first ever posted fanfic!! It might not be that good but I wanted to share because Zukka lives in my head rent free, and I'm like- why not. It's kind of a mix between canon and modern universe? Like they have phones but Appa exists. It's a little confusing, so I'm sorry about that, but I hope it's enjoyable nonetheless. I just wanted to write some Zukka for fun. I also don't know how long each chapter will be, and it may be inconsistent. Thanks for understanding <3

    Summary

    "His wife longed for a baby so keenly now that he likened it to grief. He could feel it in his heart, every hour of every day, as powerfully as if the emotions were his own. He could feel it that very moment, stabbing into him like needles. He wanted to apologise, to get on his knees and beg at her feet - for forgiveness, for more time, for her to understand - but he knew it would not comfort her. Only one thing would do that and he couldn’t give it to her."

    Or: Katara wants a family to call her own, but Zuko struggles with the idea.

    Summary

    [ Zuko is scared of fire.

    ...That’s not completely accurate.

    He’s afraid. Petrified. Horrified. Terrified. Haunted. Affrighted. Intimidated. Any and every synonym to scared can apply easily to his aversion to fire. They still wouldn’t be enough to describe the sheer amount of terror he feels at the existence, the sheer thought of fire. ]

    Or: 14 yo zuko melodramatically monologues about his hatred for fire bc author is stupid k*nnie who loves venting thru making his faves also hurt. it's better than it sounds i swear
