    Summary

    Finding himself separated from his uncle after an attempt on his life, a newly banished Zuko washes up on the shores of Kyoshi Island.

    In his efforts to reunite with the last living family member to ever show him kindness, he crosses paths with a badass Kyoshi Warrior, a certain blind earthbending genius, and is dragged into way more than he ever bargained for.

    AKA, Zuko is thrown into the sea, makes friends with Suki and Toph, and joins the gaang early.

    Summary

    “Zuko wakes up, eyes glowing bright white underneath the bandages and wraps.

    Uncle Iroh’s cup falls from his hand and cracks into fragile shards on the floor, spilling jasmine tea over his sandled feet. Iroh does not look down, does not look away from his nephew.

    When Zuko throws up over the side of his cot, Uncle is there to hold his hair back.”

    Well, good news is they’ve found the Avatar.

    Bad news is, this changes everything.

    Summary

    After his duel, Zuko had fled to the Earth Kingdom where he has been living for the past 3 years, living as a farmer and a healer after being adopted by a nice Earth Kingdom family, presumed dead by the Fire Nation when disappearing while injured, giving Iroh a chance to keep Azula from staying loyal to her father. Given a chance to heal & find people who genuinely care about him with no ties or loyalty to his father, he is able to be saved from growing bitter and jaded after years of failing at a mission. Using his alias as The Blue Spirit as a healer who has learned to use firebending to heal as opposed to as a thief and assassin, he is able to influence views on firebending from both the Earth Kingdom and Water Tribes as wells as firebenders themselves. He comes across the Gaang in the harbor town he has been living in, connecting with them as a healer who still remembers how to fight from what his life used to be, joining their cause before they even reach the Northern Water Tribe.

    This is a series, I have posted a summary at the end of the 1st part if you don't want to read Zuko's recovery arc. I would suggest reading it, but it isn't plot heavy and I'm not here to tell you how to live your life.

    Summary

    “Zuko, how about you tell us a story?”

     

    “I’d rather not” he deadpanned back
    “I’m not the best at storytelling”

     

    “Aw c’mon, you cant be that bad!” Sokka was staring at him with what could only be described as kicked puppy-kitten eyes. Zuko rolled his eyes even as the rest of the group began to encourage him.

     

    (Sometime after watching the play, the gaang are sitting around the firepit telling stories. The story of Zuko’s scar comes out, and tears are spilled)

    Summary

    When they got off the train it was dark, the dark of a winter afternoon at four pm, and Sokka trailed their suitcase through the shadows and heaped-up snow, out to the curb. Zuko was adjusting his coat nervously. It was an early Christmas present from Sokka, an olive-green peacoat that made him look elegant, and he pulled off his beanie, neatening his hair.

    “It's cold.”

    “I know,” Zuko said, still combing through with his fingers. “I want to make a good impression."

    “I'm still wearing my hat,” Sokka pointed out.

    "You're not meeting your dad for the first time," Zuko said, amused.

    Sokka slipped his arm around his waist.

    “Then I'll have to keep you warm.”

    “Yes,” he said, kissing Sokka's ear. "You better do that.”

    sequel to Offering.

    Now with more emotional vulnerability, more sex, and more Philadelphia.

    Summary

    Two years ago, Prince Lu Ten was lost at sea with his entire crew, with no body recovered or confirmation of life or death, the Fire Sages urged the royal family to choose a new successor to replace him in the line. Prince Zuko and Princess Azula are both of age to take the throne, but first they must complete a series of tests to prove they are prepared for this position, as every ruler in their family had to. They accomplished every test placed before them and completed every task, until they are faced with one final mission. Given six months to complete their quest, Azula is sent to handle civil unrest in a series of islands while Zuko is tasked to find and slay a great beast that has been terrorizing people across the nations for the last four decades. Every man to take up arms against it has failed.

    Tasked with this seemingly impossible mission, he sets forth to track the beast down and end its reign of terror over the people once and for all. Though as he races against time in this journey, he discovers that the burdens of such a quest had led him to a fortuitous crossroads as he wars with his heart and his duty to his people.

    Summary

    He’d put on weight again, ordering takeout furiously, like it was a punishment Zuko had to administer, a punishment for his own gluttony and the idiocy of thinking he could be loved.

    Well, he couldn’t be loved.  

    --

    Zuko is in an abusive relationship with Zhao, a sadist who wants Zuko for his body. Sokka wants Zuko for who he is, if Zuko can ever accept that.

    If this is your thing, it will really be your thing.

    Summary

    Agni has stood by as his children have used their gifts to burn the world, consumed with despair but reluctant to interfere. When the one who is meant to act as his intermediary in the mortal realm burns his own son in a shocking act of cruelty in front of a crowd who fail to step in, that is the final straw.

    The Fire Nation descends into chaos at the sudden loss of firebending, & the war becomes bloodier still, as the troops fight on out of sheer desperation, terrified that a reckoning is now due.

    And then Iroh, tending his injured nephew while trying to keep him safe from a vengeful father who blames him for this calamity, realises that Zuko's inner flame still burns...

    Summary

    – and Azula’s crackling bolt of lightning steadied, became still and straight, and was a beam of blue light thrusting from the horizon to the sky. The cold voltaic shock through his nerves was the sting of cold air damp with spray from the sea, the pressure of electrical charge the weight of armour on his shoulders, the harsh blue-white glow of lightning the grey-white-blue of sea and ice and sky.

    …His scalp was cold.

    Zuko doesn't know why he's suddenly back here again, here on his ship amongst the icebergs, with the Avatar's light stabbing into the sky. He's not even sure this is real. But if it is, he's going to do things better this time.

    Of course, things go off the rails almost immediately.

    Summary

    He’d been pacing across the deck, considering in which direction to search next, when a great beam of light suddenly shot up into the sky far ahead; a beacon, a herald, a return. Surely, such a powerful thing could only come from one source, one which had to be-

    Zuko collapsed to the deck before he even had a chance to demand if Uncle Iroh knew what it meant.

    Summary

    "His eyebrows raised as he saw four figures dash into the yard to grab various articles of clothing. His eyebrows raised even further as he glimpsed the blue clothes of two of the figures, the green of another, and finally the yellow of the last. His eyes met the boy with the singed yellow outfit as he was pulling a school uniform off the clothesline and noticed his arrows. It was easy to conclude who the boy was,"
    ------
    In which Lu Ten isn't dead, and conveniently notices the avatar isn't either. Considering the world thinks both of them are dead, it's really only logical that he helps the avatar finish the war. After all, he really wants to tell his father and his cousin that he's not as dead as they think he is.

    Summary

    ‘…H-how am I still alive?’ Zuko thinks.

    Sokka flinches back. Whoaaa, how in Spirits name did Zuko project his voice like that? Sokka didn’t even see him move his lips.

    As if he can hear Sokka’s thoughts, Zuko turns his head to look directly at him, eyes bewildered.

    And this is where Sokka realises something is very, very wrong.

    Two minutes later: “No way!” Sokka shakes his head wildly, just as prince jerkbender across him curses. “I’m soul bonded- To him?! No way! That’s just spirit mumbo-jumbo!!!”

    -or, through some freak Spirit accident involving Zhao, the Avatar, and the continuous joke that is both their existence, Sokka and Zuko have been soul-bonded and mentally linked. Neither of them are particularly happy with this.

    Summary

    Affection was a debt to be repaid. Touch and praise, as Zuko had come to know them, always came with a catch. The only other person who had never expected anything from him, who never treated affection as a transactional gesture, was Uncle.
    Where Uncle gave, and gave, and gave- practically bled unconditional love and affection- other men had taken.

    (Or, Zuko spent his whole life being taken advantage of and doesn’t understand that you should never have to exchange favors for mercy or affection. Hakoda attempts to right sixteen years of others' wrongdoings.)

    Summary

    [ He drinks the tea and tries not to look uncomfortable as Zhao moves closer and closer. He doesn't know how, but somehow every time he blinks the man is closer. He should say something, but what? He’s not actually doing anything wrong. (He should move closer; Zuko is his prince, and he should be hanging on his every word. It was perfectly reasonable.)
    If Uncle were here, objecting would earn a stern look and a proverb on the nature of politeness and being receptive to your conversation partners.
    Zuko says nothing.
    Zhao is next to him now. He rests a hand on Zuko's thigh.
    He wants to say something, but his head feels like it’s stuffed with cotton and his tongue won't work properly. ]

    Wherever Zuko goes, Zhao always seems to be there, smirking & offering him tea. He doesn't want the tea-that-is-not-just-tea. But he can't explain why to his uncle, or tell him that the very thought of tea makes him want to scream (in rage, not fear, because princes don't feel fear).
