    Summary

    Three years passed between the Avatar being found and the fall of Ba Sing Se. Aang was fifteen years old when Princess Azula struck him down in the Crystal Caves. Taking his body - Katara, Sokka, Toph, and Suki escaped to the Northern Water Tribe where they started the long process of recovery.

    In an act of desperation, Chief Arnook made a treaty with Fire Lord Ozai. A marriage between a Prince and Princess, which guaranteed safety for the Water Tribe, and security and for the Fire Nation - as Ozai didn't believe that the Avatar was truly dead. But he wouldn't lay waste to the Fire Nation and risk hurting his friend.

    Summary

    “Hello there!” The kid’s head shot up, their body freezing. Big eyes staring back at him. Well, one eye actually. The other one was still pulled fairly closed, the side of their face covered in a heck of a burn scar. How does a kid get a scar like that?
    “Do you live close to here? If you don’t, it looks like rain, I don’t mind giving you a ride if-“ The kid had already run off. In the opposite direction. And into the woods.
    Because a strange man in a minivan had pulled up and asked where they live and offered to give them a ride, stellar work there Hakoda.
    At least the kid had some survival instincts.

     

    Zuko needs a new dad, and Hakoda volunteers. Some scenes spanning Zuko's old life, new life, and beyond

    Summary

    "Prince Zuko," Iroh began, but the prince wasn't having it. He stormed away, not sparing his battered sparring partners a glance (he'd already bowed at the end of their match, anything else was unnecessary). Before he knew it he was in his quarters, flinging sparks from his fingers and hissing steam. When that passed, he aggressively lit his meditation candles and tried to calm down. It was difficult because unlike combat meditation came easily, which added insult to injury. Gentle flames licked the air and formed in his palms as well. They were warm and soothing, unlike how fire was supposed to be. Instead of stinging his skin with small burns, the flames numbed the scraps on his palms and the aches in his joints. He knew that by the time his meditation ended he would feel invigorated and new.

    His heart burned with shame; no wonder father had discarded him. There was no greater disgrace than having a son who was a healer.

    Summary

    There was no way he was seeing any of this right. Absolutely not. He must have-- ah, what did Sokka say it was called again? Midnight Sun Madness?
    Yes. That.
    There was absolutely no way the absolute love of his life was now kneeling before him, holding out an engagement necklace. A gorgeous, hand-carved engagement necklace.
    Those things simply did not happen. He must be dreaming, or insane.
    Yet here he was, holding the delicately braided leather cord as Sokka shuffled closer and cupped Zuko’s warm hands in his cold ones.

    The sequel to the fic "A Step (And A Ring) Too Far", in which Zuko deals with Sokka's surprise proposal :)

    Summary

    Zuko had had enough of his roommate. He’d probably talked to the guy twice since moving in and both interactions had been insufferable. Sokka slept all day and stayed out all night. If he was up during the day he was in his room.

    The only sign of life was the obnoxiously loud music that always blasted from his room. Today, Zuko had worked an 8-hour shift and dealt with Karen’s all day long.

    After coming home late, Zuko prayed for peace and a good cup of tea. While the tea happened, the peace, unfortunately, did not.

    Sitting at the table gritting his teeth, Zuko listened to the heavy bass which could be heard through the thick wall between Sokka’s room and the kitchen. That was the last straw.

    (OR: Sokka is a SoundCloud rapper. Zuko is gay and tired).

    Summary

    Aang leans over and asks, not nearly quiet enough, “Why’s Jet hate you?”

    “Long story.” It’s not actually all that long when Zuko runs through it in his head, but he still doesn’t feel like explaining. “It’s not a big deal.”
    ---

    Here's the thing, though: it kind of, definitely, one-hundred percent is.

    Summary

    “Dude, you haven’t been following any of that stuff about the Blue Spirit? It’s so cool!” Sokka joined Mai on the floor, sitting in the butterfly pose and leaning forward to touch the floor as far as he could reach.

    “Um, no. Not really.” Zuko sighed, pulling his leg up into a quadricep stretch.

    “Awe, not a fan of the new vigilante, Zuko?” Mai deadpanned, blowing a strand of hair from her face.

    “I don’t know, why should I care about some random guy trying to get himself killed? It’s not like one person can do enough to make a difference.”

    “You know what I always love about you, Zuko?” Sokka stood, bouncing on the balls of his feet and grinning as he stretched his arms. “You always look on the bright side.”

    “Practically a ray of sunshine.” Mai chimed in.

    “Whatever. Hard to be disappointed if you don’t look forward to anything.”

    Summary

    The impact of falling forced the air out of her lungs. The electricity found a way in and froze her muscles in a cramping mess, the only thing that she could barely control is her breathing. She held it. Two coy fish then came and circled her.
    ‘Great, now even the fish want me dead.’

    One of the fish was pure white the type that would make a snow hawk look dusty. Its scales glittered like small diamonds. There is a small dot on the forehead as dark as the night sky. The other is the deepest blue interspaced with glittery black scales. Jaylin breathed out knowing that it is pointless to fight. She breathed out watching the bubbles float to the surface and closed her eyes.

    Or

    Jaylin knows that reincarnation is carved into the cycle of life. Laws in the same ways life and death is. She just didn’t expect it when she is reborn in another world of magic and spirits.
