    Summary

    The director could get on his knees, and talk about honouring Zuko all he liked, but it didn’t erase the fact that the Ember Island Players had trivialised—had actively mocked—his struggles. His friends’ struggles.

    This man had Zuko murdered on-stage to the rapturous applause of the audience, and now he was trying to smile sweetly at Zuko, and welcome him onto his set, as if there weren’t exaggerated versions of his friend’s outfits tucked away backstage, as if he hadn’t orchestrated Aang’s death at the hands of his father—

     

    Fire Lord Zuko meets the Ember Island Players.

    Summary

    “I’m so proud of you, my nephew.” Uncle cups Zuko’s face in his lined hand. The gesture is so tender, his palm so warm, that Zuko has to take a fortifying breath against the sudden swell of emotion in his chest.

    “I want to be a good leader, Uncle,” Zuko says. “I want to look after my people.”

    “You will,” Uncle says. “You are, nephew.”

     

    In a new era of peace, Zuko works to be a very different Fire Lord than his forefathers. Based on this tumblr post.

    There were whispers. There was absolutely no way to stop them. Ed would rip out his spleen if he knew what all those people were insinuating about the two of them.

    Summary

    “Keith, baby, you have to listen to me, you have to stay awake!”

    Shiro?

    A ghost of a touch skitters over his numbed face, thumbs sweeping fervently against his temples.

    “We’re going to fix this. I’ll fix this, I promise, but you can’t go to sleep, you hear me? You have to hold on, please!”

    Shiro . . . Shiro, wait. Fix wha— . . . fi . . .

    The thoughts fall away from him as unconsciousness claims him.

    ---

    Soon after a fallout with one of the members of the team, Keith is inflicted by a strange illness that ravages his body and mind; something that takes him ever closer to the brink of death. Despite their differences, the Paladins are desperate to save the life of one of their own.

    Now, if only Keith would figure that out.
