    Summary

    Sokka takes a strategic step back, but he also smiles: triumphant, like he baited Zuko into exactly what he wanted. Like it’s a challenge. It’s the same way he looked when they sized each other up at the prison, with Sokka in chains that left red marks around his wrist, in tattered prison garb, malnourished and angry. Back then, that was Sokka saying: I see your power. I see you. Now, see me.

    Zuko saw him then. And he sees him now; different, but the same. I see you.

    Zuko lights his daos in flame. Sokka grins, back to gravel and heat. “Come on, Fire Lord. Impress me.”

    Zuko burns. His vision flickers with fire. His heart races. His blood sings. His body is like a magnet, pulling ever onward to meet Sokka’s. He advances.

    He pins Sokka to the wall, blades against his throat.

    Or, Zuko found Aang first, Sokka and Katara were imprisoned in Boiling Rock for trying to rescue their dad, and all Sokka knows is he's pretty sure he's not supposed to think the Fire Lord is attractive but he's never let things like rules stop him before.

    Summary

    The sun and the moon are opposites. The Fire Nation and the Water Tribes are opposites. Fire and water are opposites. Summer and winter are opposites. Princes and peasants are opposites. Zuko and Sokka are opposites. So, naturally, they don’t mix. Not ever. Not even if Sokka keeps going back, lying to himself by saying that it’s just for information and that he’s not totally and completely falling in love with a Fire Nation prince.

    Or: Sokka finds Zuko at Pao’s Family Tea House, accidentally-kinda-maybe falls in love under the pretense of gathering information and thinks that maybe he and Zuko aren’t that different after all.

    Summary

    [“They might not realize it was unsafe,” Zuko says, nodding like that makes sense. “If it’s what they were raised with. Or if it changed slowly. So they might keep going back even if it wasn’t good.”

    “Maybe,” Sokka says, scratching at the base of his wolf tail and making a strong mental note to dig up more information. Homework might be piling up, but it's not piled yet, right? And if Zuko is interested, well, Sokka is interested in seeing where Zuko's mind goes. “The ducklings not doing well would probably be an indicator, though.”

    “Hm,” Zuko says, after what Sokka is starting to think—hope—might be a characteristic pause. “You’d think.”]

    Or,

    Sokka is nothing if not enthusiastic about his interests--Learning. Campus traditions. The campus turtle ducks. The guy who's watching the ducks so intently this year.

    Zuko is nothing if not intense about duck watching. (It's not really about the ducks.) (Is it ever?)
