    Summary

    What Sokka always wants to say is I’m sorry. To everyone and no one in particular. He doesn’t know why it started, but he does know that the urge to apologize crops up constantly––when he took Katara’s toys as a kid, when he saw someone’s home destroyed on the news, when someone else knocked over his things.

    There’s no real rhyme or reason, but it consumes every part of his being. Constantly, constantly. I’m sorry.

     

    Started from a writing prompt: "What I always wanted to say was..." and it snowballed into this 12k slice-of-life/mental health/coming out/reflection piece.

    Summary

    (He’d said “made an entrance” because that’s what it was: the door practically flew open to reveal a man he had never seen before, an attractive man, looking unsure in the doorway with his hands full. He wore a huge utility jacket and a fanny pack across his broad chest, all black but peppered with light blue accents, and a white bone earring hung from one ear. Dark hair fell loosely around his face, the smooth, brown skin of his sharp jaw clenching and unclenching as oceanic eyes scanned the room. Zuko swam for a second before he recognized those eyes and they halted on him.)

    Zuko’s muscles went even tauter until those eyes left him entirely, finding land. “There you are, Katara,” the man breathed, and crossed the room. “You left your water bottle and lunch at home.”

    Summary

    “Here,” Zuko said, picking up a quarter someone had left on top of a parking meter. He took the umbrella from Sokka and gave him the quarter in return, pressing it in his palm. It was cold.

    Sokka’s hand closed around it, and he wanted to say something. Wanted to say, this is your day. This isn’t supposed to be about me right now, dude. I try to take you out for ice cream and you, dramatic idiot that you are, bring me gallivanting around town and give me some sort of half-crazed, quirky movie scene...what? Love confession? Shit, this is a love confession? Is this a love confession?

    or:

    Zuko's feeling sad, Sokka wants to make him feel better, and what's better than ice cream on a rainy, cold day? (Ft. impromptu and kind of awkward love confessions, and also gummy worms)

    Summary

    Public magnet school Omashu High and prestigious boarding school Sozin Academy have been Science Bowl rivals for years-- and the antagonism between Sokka and Zuko has gotten personal.

    Sokka and Suki plan to lead their ragtag band of misfits to victory, but what will happen when Sokka's nemesis turns out to be more complicated than he imagined... and they may need each other more than they realized?

    (Basically: Nerdy Gaang + Zukka hijinx, strung together with rom com tropes, high school competition rules, smooching, swearing, one little boarding school break-in, and a whole lotta science puns... served atop a way more heaping portion of angst than I intended. If that’s your trash, then enjoy.)

    Summary

    His friend’s face was glowing as he stared up at the roof of the car with the softest smile. He looked like he was born in color, and had lived and breathed it ever since. Watery light danced across his cheeks, flickering across the bridge of his nose like he was the sky itself. 

    He had no right to look so magical just then.

    And something in Zuko’s chest either broke or mended itself, because he’d never seen the aurora before, but he imagined it looked a little like this.

    OR,

    zuko falls in love with sokka, sokka falls in love with zuko, a rainbow car wash gets involved. it’s more or less in that order.
