    Summary

    The first time they met was innocent enough. It might have meant nothing.
    The second time never should have happened.
    The third time they couldn’t even blame fate.
    The fourth time, though, was something else entirely.

    Aged up, modern AU. A Zutara love story (of course) with plenty of tropes and (hopefully) less angst (don't worry tho, there's still angst)

     

    It was comfortable, but it didn’t mean anything. When Zuko finally felt exhaustion pull at his tattered edges, he stood up slowly. Kat looked up and gave him a little wave over the top of her book. “Good night Li,” she said. He must have imagined the sparkle in her eyes. It was after midnight. No one’s eyes sparked after midnight.

    Summary

    In the middle of her last year at the Fire Nation Royal University, Katara’s classes and part time job consume most of her time. Coming home late one night after the library closes, she takes a shortcut to her new apartment and passes a small tea shop in a back alley.

    Even when the sign on the door of his uncle’s tea shop is turned to say ‘closed’, Zuko still has to to clean up before he locks up. Alone in the small, old luxury tea house wedged in the back alley of Souzin Building One, he is confident no one sees him as he puts on some earbuds and sweeps as he unknowingly dances along to the music.

    As he innocently goes about his cleaning, singing along, he turns around and finds himself looking into the crinkled blue eyes of a giggling university student on the other side.

    Summary

    Katara has been cruising through her biochemistry degree at Ba Sing Se University, well on her way to medical school, when Organic Chemistry II puts a kink in her plans. The class throws her for a loop, and she spends long hours with the TA, a sweet guy named Haru. Then Haru is out sick, and his inscrutable roommate Zuko fills in for him. Zuko is handsome in a sharp sort of way, if you're into arrogant self-centered assholes, which she's not. Only, he's an excellent teacher, and when he's not being a jerk he is unbearably kind, and he captivates her in a way she can't explain. He throws her for a loop, just like O-Chem, only not like O-Chem at all.

    Summary

    The war is won but after years, rebuilding is still slow and tenuous.

    Katara feels homeless. Everyone else has found a place for themselves after the war. Zuko is the Fire Lord. Aang is the Avatar restoring the Air Nomad nation. Toph has founded a metalbending school in the Earth Kingdom. Sokka has taken the lead beside their father in the Southern Water Tribe’s rebuilding and modernization process.

    It seems there’s no place left that needs Katara.
