And then the countries start filing out onto the stage, one by one. And then it’s their turn to step out of the tunnel, into the heart of the National Stadium, into the blinding lights and the deafening cheers and the music that pounds into every bone in his body. And then it finally hits him.
Sokka is twenty-two years old when he qualifies for the Olympics.

Katara is halfway through parting out bits of hair for her hair-loopies when she hears voices coming from the other side of the (unfortunately thin) wall.
“Sleep well?” Zuko’s voice murmurs, rough with sleep.
Someone hums in response, and Katara’s about to pound on the wall and make fun of Zuko for having someone in bed with him, when the person speaks up.
“Pretty good, yeah,” Sokka says. Katara’s fist pauses halfway through it’s trek to the wall, held up in mid air.
Or, five times that Katara notices how close Sokka and Zuko are, and the one time she realises just how Close they really are.

sokka & zuko, the boiling rock, and what comes after
Sokka dropped out of med school to help take care of his dying mother at the family cabin. After she dies, he stays in the cabin year-round in order to clear his head. Little did he know his peaceful refugium would be turned upside down after finding a man in the woods with a fresh burn on his face running away. He didn't expect his rusty medical knowledge to come in handy again so soon and this stubborn in-house patient is the ultimate test of bedside manner. This is their story.
Sokka heals Zuko in more ways than one and Zuko helps Sokka finally grieve his previous losses and realize what he wants to do in life. Mutual pining and slow burn.
