    Summary

    Sokka looked around the throne room with interest. “I always wondered what the world was like from up here - must be nice looking out at your adoring subjects.”

    “Being the Fire Lord is pretty dull,” Zuko said glumly, "unless you enjoy hearing people bicker about taxes. After a while, thwarting the occasional assassination is basically a form of stress relief."


    In which Fire Lord Zuko and Ambassador Sokka get drunk, go fishing, watch theatre, uncover a conspiracy, visit a teahouse, destroy a historical monument, and reckon with the painful legacy of the past – but not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Sokka writes lyrics for his sister’s band. Zuko plays piano and is unnecessarily nice.
    Fellas, is it gay to write love songs about your friend and his golden eyes?

    (AKA, a modern band AU featuring The Gaang, crappy software equipment, homoerotic lyrics, and the realization that maybe, if you think about a guy every night before you sleep, you just might be in love with him.)

    Summary

    There isn’t any shame in relying in others, Zuko had told her, once. Face soft with sleep, curled up on her bedside in the facility, as she painted her nails in an attempt to stop chewing them. I learned it the hard way. Sometimes you need to hit rock bottom to climb your way back up.

    And sometimes when you hit rock bottom you break your neck, she’d answered. Why let yourself get that low?

    It’s difficult to know which way is up and which way is down sometimes, he’d said. Finger tapping his scar. It isn’t the hitting the ground that gets you. Sometimes it’s the fall.

     

    Or, Azula takes the long way home. Featuring the passage of time, the life-changing aspects of a field trip across the Earth Kingdom, and making a place for yourself.

    Summary

    Steve turns, wiping his hands on the ragged dish towel he holds, and Bucky can’t even smile—

    Because here’s a truth: when Bucky was strapped to that table in Italy, and when Bucky was crouched in muddy trenches while bullets whistled overhead, and when Bucky was dying in a hospital bed, thrashing with a fever, he resolved to tell Steve if he made it out alive, because he couldn’t bear the idea of leaving this earth behind without Steve ever having known that Bucky loves him.

    ***

    After the war, Bucky comes home.
