    Summary

    Zuko goes into exile with a scar, a mission, and a wife.

    The girl wears ill fitted ceremonial silks. She is too thin, with jutting bones and hollowed eyes. Dirt smudges her cheek. Her lower lip has a healing split in it. Gaudy as her finery is, she wears it like prisoner’s rags.

    All of this Zuko registers in the time it takes him to reach the dais and bow. Every muscle aches with the remembrance of what happened the last time he knelt before Father. This time there is no begging, no roar of the crowd, no burning. Still—Zuko’s grateful to stand once more.

    Slipping into soldier’s parade rest, he waits for what will come next, all too aware of the girl’s defiant body next to his.

    “I am told that this is Katara of the Southern Water Tribe,” Father says, cruel amusement oiling his words. The phrasing makes the girl sound like a thing. “The last waterbender of their pathetic tribe.” Flames conceal all but his shadow, yet Zuko knows from long experience the exacting blade of his father’s smirk. The smirk he must surely wear now. Because he has built up his insult and now he lets it fall. “Your bride.”

    Summary

    The one where Vader turned double agent for the Rebellion about three years after ROTS, and Leia is now his primary contact with the Rebellion.

    This is a collection of oneshots that all fit into the same universe, but posted in no particular order. Updated when the muse strikes me.

    Alternate summary, according to TV Tropes: A man attempts to escape slavery by turning into one of his culture heroes, teaching his daughter how to do magic, killing people, and flower arranging.

    Summary

    She closed her eyes and felt the wind in her hair, on her face; she felt the warmth of the sun on her skin. And when she exhaled, she whispered.

    Katara prayed to the sun god for the first time since the last time.

    (Based on Hayley Foster's "Reunion Part II"). Podfic version available on Spotify
