    Summary

    Zuko had never excelled at anything. Azula was a prodigy. Uncle always knew what to say. And Father... Father was strong, iron-like. But Zuko had only ever been good at surviving. Putting one foot in front of the other in a grim show of stubborn determination, gritting his teeth and bearing it. Survival was all he had ever been taught. He knew how to do it. So when he was kidnapped by the Southern Water Tribe, he expected to fight as he always had. He didn’t expect to be taught instead how to live.

    In a warring land, the Water Tribe forgave the enemy in an act of defiance, an act of kindness in a world so accustomed to blood. For this, he was torn from them, and this time, his wounds won't heal so easily.

    Forced back into nothing but survival, the last person Zuko expected to see was Hakoda's son. Hakoda was a promise of safety. The relentless blue of Sokka’s eyes was a promise of happiness. Zuko could have both if he just reached out his hands, but he found them clutching into fists. After all, he’d been burned one too many times.

    But hey, at least between Hakoda and Sokka, Zuko could appreciate the family resemblance of pure, asinine stubbornness.

    Summary

    When Suki first joined Avatar Security Agency, she’d been under the impression she’d be taking on assignments protecting the innocent, the gentle, and those otherwise incapable of protecting themselves.

    But when Ozai Sozin—aka the Phoenix Kingpin, Firelord of Crime—is arrested and his criminal empire begins to crumble, Suki is assigned to take Ozai’s daughter, Azula, to a safe house to protect her from the warring crime families vying to take his place.

    To make things more complicated, the 23-year-old protégé and heir-apparent to the Fire Clan has no interest in being protected. She’d much rather take up her father’s mantle as Republic City’s new reigning crime lord, and minor bumps in the road like abduction, attempted assassinations, an overprotective big brother, and being trapped in a safe house with an uptight, very sexy bodyguard are not going to stop her.

    Summary

    “Ten dollars,” Azula says, because anything more might lead to a high-stakes gambling op that she’s not keen on writing about in the “prior offenses” section in her grad school apps, and anything less makes the bet seem almost inconsequential. “Now go forth.”

    The Mao and Singh Labs pool their collective resources into betting on when the grad student and the lab tech are going to get together. It doesn't exactly go as planned.
