    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.

    Summary

    Zhou Zishu takes the pipe, checks that the ember is still alive, and sets it in his mouth. When he sucks the smoke into his mouth, he can only just barely perceive the pungent herbal scent of it, like passing someone in the street who had smoked hours before. But it feels the same as it always has, hot and dry in the back of his throat. He holds it in his lungs, offers the pipe to Wen Kexing. Exhales slowly through his nose.

    On the road to Longyuan Pavilion.

    Summary

    "Qin Huaizhang's disciple, I'll ask you a question first. How willing are you to let that insolent shidi of yours trade his life for yours?" Coldness suffused his veins. If that was what Lao Wen chose to do, Zhou Zishu would follow him onto the Yellow Spring Road and drag him back into this world, kicking and screaming, and murder him himself. They lived together, or not at all.
    Ye Baiyi's lips curled into a sneer. "As I thought. I say, what's the point of going to all the trouble when you're just going to off yourself?"
    "I didn't say anything - "
    "It's written all over your dainty face."
    Zhou Zishu blinked, unsure what part of that sentence he should be taking offense at, if at all.
    "How willing are you to suffer the pain of death, no, pain worse than death, pain that would leave you wishing you were dead - "
    "That I can do." Zhou Zishu interjected.

    Or, a different road taken but all roads lead to home; in which Zhou Zishu's self-inflicted accelerated hurtle toward death is discovered early on, and it turns out that Fate is capable of dealing a much kinder hand toward two men with irrevocably bloodied hands and what constitutes their found family.
