    Summary

    The man’s voice once again broke him from his thoughts; “In my dreams I see them tortured by Fire Nation soldiers. I see my entire culture wiped from the South, our footprint upon the ice shelves gone as though we never existed, our connection with the spirits and our ancestors forgotten.” He was silent for the briefest of moments, then said, “You’re Fire Nation, aren’t you?”

    Zuko rolled onto his side, facing the wall, scar pressed into the arm that cushioned his head. “Once, maybe.”

    “Answer me this, then; when will this war see it's end?”

    Zuko, recalling the fire that had burned in Azula’s sunlit gaze the day she’d caught up to him, chose not to respond.

    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.

    Summary

    [Zuko is rocking.

    That’s the first sensation he feels upon awakening. It’s a familiar feeling, as is the texture of the knit blanket he’s curled up in, as is the quiet but constant hum of machinery, deep in the belly of the Jasmine Dragon.

    ...wait.

    Zuko bolts upright and flails, once, and falls out of bed with a hard clatter. It’s his bed that he’s been sleeping in for years, and definitely not the cell that he’s been rotting in for the last...he doesn’t know how long. He doesn’t know how he got here. He doesn’t remember.]

    Or,

    Zuko is not okay. But he can get better.
