    Summary

    The crack echoes through the room. His knees hit the ground in prostration, in penance.

    (His mouth runs with warm iron. It will soon become a familiar taste.)

    “Pathetic,” says his father from high on above. “I should have drowned you at birth.”

    I’m sorry, he thinks, but doesn’t dare say.

    He knows it would only come out wrong.

     


     

    The first time he tastes the back of his father’s hand, he is five. It is not the last.

    Summary

    “your dad,” sokka starts, then swallows hard. “your dad dueled you, burned half of your face off, and then banished you because you spoke when you shouldn’t have?”

    guilt festers and bubbles like black tar in zuko’s chest. “i didn’t just speak. i questioned and insulted one of his highest-ranking generals—but the man was planning a massacre! he shouldn’t have—” zuko clamps his mouth shut, his teeth clicking together, and swallows thickly. “i mean. i found the tactic he proposed very startling, but it wasn’t my place to question such things. i’m sure he had his reasons.”

    “tui and la what the absolute fuck,” sokka whispers.

    [zuko gets imprisoned with sokka and katara during the winter solstice, and some very unfortunate things come to light. alternatively: the gaang kidnaps adopts zuko in book one after discovering just how awful his father is.]
