    Summary

    Zuko knows it was a mistake, but it comes out of his mouth anyway, and somewhere down the line everyone thinks he and Sokka are dating, which was not his goal with trying to come out to his nation, but now it's happened and he has no idea what to do about it.

    He expects Sokka, when he returns, to be mad about it, or to laugh it off and correct everyone's misguided opinions. The last thing he expects is Sokka to suggest they run with it, maintain Zuko's precarious reputation as best they can. They spend most of their time together, anyway, what's the harm in having to pretend to be a couple for that time?

    A lot, it turns out.

    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" Zuko spoke, garnering the tribesman's attention.

    "Fire Lord Zuko," Sokka said, lowering his gaze to avoid Zuko's eyes, "you look well," Zuko felt so small.

    Sokka spoke mechanically, rehearsed, like the conversation was strained and the six words were something he might choke on.

    It dawned on him.

    Zuko was alone, not even Hakoda was here to defend him from the carnivorous harpies, it was just him. His hands shook, lips trembled, but he did his best to show face. His smile disappeared, his warmth dying like the last coals on a hearth, and Zuko felt cold.

    He hated the cold.

    Summary

    Shoot. What would Uncle Iroh say? No -- he can figure this out himself, he’s the firelord, for Agni’s sake, he can’t rely on his uncle forever.

    He’s hidden his feelings for this long, surely he can control them for two and a half more days, right? Just long enough to visit the Southern Water Tribe, see some of his friends, and then return to his firelord duties before the winter months truly begin. This will be easy. There’s absolutely no reason to panic.

    Summary

    “I need to do this Zuko. Please. If you won’t help me, I’ll do it alone. That’s fine. I’ve been by myself for years now. I don’t need your help.” You turned to leave and he reached to grab you again. You pulled your hand away before he could.
    “Y/n stop." His tone, it sent shivers down your spine. Spirits. He sounded like Ozai.
    You kept walking, your eyes locked onto the door.
    "As your prince, I command you to STOP.” He was almost shouting now, his voice thick with emotion. Desperation. You reached the doorway to the hall and put your hand on it, pausing for a moment.
    That was the first command he had ever given you.
