    Summary

    "Have you felt unsafe on campus? Threatened? Afraid to walk around campus? We will walk with you!"

    “I was wondering … are there any more services you provide?”

    Keith frowns down at the words in his book. What does this guy think this is? Keith reluctantly lifts his head, a snarky remark ready on his lips — but he’s briefly stunned into silence when he’s greeted with a pair of bright blue eyes and a mischievous smile.

    “What do you mean?” Shiro asks. There’s still a friendly smile on his lips, but Keith can see the same confusion on his face.

    “Well,” the boy says, leaning his hip against the table, “I know you’ll accompany people who feel unsafe walking alone around campus, but …,” he pauses, and the cheeky smile on his lips gets even wider. “I’m sure everyone would be thrilled if you did more than that.” And then the guy winks.

    Summary

    When Zuko dashes into the sitting room, it is with the same wide-eyed panic that he ran from Azula’s smoking hands when he was a child. Iroh bites down on a smile. Zuko looks the same, even now, a decade later with a scar blossomed over one side of his face, green and brown robes replacing the solitary reds of his childhood. His hair is puffed up around his face. He looks like a very frightened, very windswept turtle-dove.

    Zuko dives behind Iroh just as Aang breezes to a stop in the doorway.

     

    Five times Zuko hid behind Iroh, plus one time Zuko stood proudly in front of him.

    Summary

    The director could get on his knees, and talk about honouring Zuko all he liked, but it didn’t erase the fact that the Ember Island Players had trivialised—had actively mocked—his struggles. His friends’ struggles.

    This man had Zuko murdered on-stage to the rapturous applause of the audience, and now he was trying to smile sweetly at Zuko, and welcome him onto his set, as if there weren’t exaggerated versions of his friend’s outfits tucked away backstage, as if he hadn’t orchestrated Aang’s death at the hands of his father—

     

    Fire Lord Zuko meets the Ember Island Players.

    Summary

    “They say you tried to kill the Firelord,” Hakoda says. "Why?"

    Zuko doesn’t know how to answer. Because I hate him. Because I love him. Because he wants to see the world burn. Because he knotted one hand in my hair and cupped flames against my face with the other.

    Because my mother is dead.

    Because my uncle is dead.

    Instead, he shrugs tiredly and says: “Someone has to.”
