    Summary

    The four most profiteering sailors of the high seas make up the Council of the White Lotus. Always have, always will. When the newest sailor, the elusive Captain Kaito, claims their spot, the White Lotus does what they always do best: make life hard for the new kid. But as alliances are forged, patiences tested, and world events finally start to impact the lives of those who call the Ring of Fire home, will the captains of the White Lotus put aside their differences and work together or is life on the high seas really all for one?

    ON HIATUS UNTIL 2023.

    Summary

    Katara and Zuko's mission on board The Southern Raiders goes badly wrong, and they are captured and imprisoned in the unforgiving hull of the ship.

    Katara now finds herself locked in a small room with a boy that she refuses to trust, and nine years worth of trauma and guilt swimming in her mind. She is resolute in her hostility towards Zuko, but as the horrors of their captivity unfold, an undeniable bond is formed in the quiet moments between their captor's torments.

    When they find themselves safely back with their friends on Ember Island, they are both sporting deep scars – old and new, seen and unseen. Katara struggles to reconcile all the pieces of herself and figure out who she truly is. And Zuko continues to battle with his past guilt, and the new guilt that arises from his growing feelings towards Katara.

    As their bond deepens – it may be the lifeline they both so desperately need to pull them from the dark waters of their past.

    Summary

    Hakoda kills a Southern Raider. This backfires spectacularly. Zuko is just trying to keep four kids from dying while not being a traitor to his nation. Toph is concerned. Sokka finds himself rethinking everything he had previously considered the norm.

    Or

    Kuei orders all of the Fire Nation out of Ba Sing Se after Azula fails her coup. This has wider ramifications than he thought.

    Summary

    High in the halls of ice and wintry waters, an iceberg cracks.

    They tend to do that. It’s hardly a unique occurence. Every day, babies are born, good men die, fires start, and ice breaks.

    It is natural. It is meant to be.

    (It’s a sign)

     

    The Avatar wakes in a changed world a century later. An almost three year search comes to fruition.

    It is all different, though. Years of rumor and story have been allowed to flourish.
