    Summary

    When Mahal himself offers to send Thorin back to the start of the quest to save the line of Durin, he is determined to make amends for all of the mistakes he made the first time around.

    When Bilbo wakes up in Bag End eighty years in the past, all he knows is that he has somehow been given the chance to see his beloved dwarves again and he'll be damned if he doesn't take it.

    Both dwarf and hobbit are desperate to prevent the quest from ending in tragedy, but neither will be able to do it on their own. They'll need to work together if they want to keep the entire Company alive and whole --but first they need to realize that they are not alone in their efforts, and they have to stop getting in each other's way at every turn they make.

    Hopefully, they'll learn some things this time that they failed to learn before. And maybe, just maybe, they'll find their happy ending that both have been yearning for.

    Summary

    "Well that wolf spirit," started Sokka, "it shows-showed me that boy, but it was never clear about why. And...and from the way I described him, I mean, you know he's…?"
    "Fire Nation," Kanna, Sokka grandmother, finished. Her tone remained even and uncompromised.
    "Right...so...why do you think it showed him to me?"
    "Do you still see Iwei? Does it visit you?"
    "S-sometimes. Yeah."
    "And do you still see that boy?"
    "...yes."
    The sound of ocean waves filled the silence.
    "You are conflicted. I understand."
    "Why could the spirits possibly want me to meet him? He's the enemy."
    "He is also your Spirit's Tether."
    "My what?"
    "Spirit's Tether, or as it is sometimes called, soulmate."
    "You...you're joking, right? Please tell me you're joking."

    Summary

    Early-Season-One Sokka finds an undersocialized firebender in the brig of Zhao's ship and brings him back to the Gaang, as one does. Good thing they've nailed down Aang's firebending teacher so early, this quest is going to be a snap, and definitely not involve any betrayals by any elemental teachers. Nope. Not a one.

    Summary

    Or: The father Zuko acquired, the five siblings who adopted him, and the one blood tie he fought to claim back.

    In an effort to spare his nephew many years of pain, Iroh orders that nobody tell Zuko of Ozai’s cruel, empty promise that Zuko could return to the Fire Nation if he captured the presumed-lost Avatar. Zuko growing up thinking he has no way home changes a lot. And also changes nothing at all.
