    Summary

    “You must know the pain of losing a favored child. By sacrificing your own!”
     
    Slowly, Father bows, until his forehead is touching the ground in respect. In obedience.

    "If the Fire Lord commands it,” Father says, his voice ringing in her ears, “it will be done."

    Or: Azulon asks Ozai to kill his daughter instead of his son. Ozai is loyal and obedient. His children, faced with a murderous father, are not.

    Summary

    [There’s a child underneath Fire Lord Zuko’s desk.

    He doesn’t realize this until he sits down and tiny hands wrap themselves around his ankles, and Fire Lord Zuko definitely does not shriek and backpedal away at the unexpected touch.

    He definitely does do that but Gou, the single guard he’s agreed to let shadow him, is kind enough not to mention it.]

    Or,

    In which Fire Lord Zuko is a total mess and somehow people manage to love him for it anyway.
