    Summary

    (And Zuko wants to laugh, he does, because he’s twenty-one, and he's the guardian of a five-year-old sister he didn’t even know existed until his mother died in a car crash, and he's legally responsible for his nineteen-year-old sister who’s been admitted for almost a year of her short life, and rent is due, and his temp job doesn’t pay nearly enough, and he wishes he had someone to help, but he has no clue where Uncle is, and no other adult has ever cared enough to help, and he’s tired.

    He’s just so, so, tired.)

    Summary

    Zuko doesn’t quite know how to build his own nest.

    He's taught it is in the omega nature of feeling safe, to be surrounded by comfort or happiness.

    Zuko hasn't felt safe or happy in years so he doesn't quite know what to do if he ever gets the desire to nest.

    (But when the day comes where he wants to nest, well, maybe Zuko will finally feel safe)

    Summary

    (“You’re not sleeping,” Mai says softly.
    “How’d you know?” Zuko asks.

    To be honest, he’s kind of gotten to the point where he’s surprised that anyone can perceive him outside of his necessary functions- he exists solely to sit in council meetings and shoulder the blame for genocides and famines and the suffering of one-hundred years. Doesn’t he?)

    The war is over, but the fallout is just beginning. And where lightning strikes, thunder is bound to follow.
