    Summary

    When Sokka and Toph notice that Zuko has begun to crack under pressure, they resolve to take him on a Team Avatar style vacation. Each person gets to pick a spot, then they'll return back to their normal lives as good as new! Right?

    As for Azula, she's finally being discharged as a patient and is given no choice but to reunite with her brother (and his friends) at Ember Island.

    Set roughly a year after the war ended.

    This fanfic largely explores mental illness and recovering from trauma. There will be many triggers, but each chapter will have its own specific trigger warnings. There are two main ships: Zukka and Tophzula. Zukka will be endgame-- Tophzula will in a future fic.

    Summary

    "'The fog was where I wanted to be.'" Everything is different. The pitch of his voice, his posture. The auditorium goes silent. No one can take their eyes off of him.

    …He's amazing.

     

    Zuko had to perfect the art of acting as a child to survive the horrors of his homelife. When he got older, it was only natural to take his talent to the stage for entertainment and escape.

    Enter Sokka, a craftsman and set designer with a giant heart who is haunted by plenty of ghosts of his own.

    A tale of trauma, disability, family, creativity, and love.

    Summary

    Sokka signs up to be a tutor seeing as he's doing well enough in school but when he starts tutoring the new kid who just moved into town he finds himself starting to regret that choice. The new kid is rude, hotheaded, self-centered, and- and kind of cute. Maybe Sokka can be the one to help Zuko out of his shell, that is if he can help him pass AP lit first.

    Summary

    “I love you.” The words fall out of Zuko’s mouth, artless and perhaps ill-timed. Even after two years, Zuko is unsure how to show his love, does not come naturally to sharing affection the way Sokka, Toph, and now Izumi do. But if the moment is wrong, Sokka does not pass comment. He simply smiles, returns the declaration of love, and lets Zuko bask in the strangeness of being happy.
    Sokka’s hands have trailed up to trace the line of Zuko’s brow, dropping low to follow the line of his scar back to his ear. “We’ll have to get ready for tonight soon.”
    Zuko groans, but he’s laughing. “You can’t make me,” he pouts, just to be petulant, just to reassure himself that he can be disagreeable and loved all the same.
    Sokka makes a commiserating noise, runs a few fingers through Zuko’s loose hair. “I know, Sunshine. They’re awful.”
    Zuko sighs, lets his eyes flutter shut. “It will be pretty awful,” Zuko admits. “But it will be less awful with you.”

    Summary

    “it’s okay, niece. it’s okay,” he grips her in his arms. he seems to understand in a way the others haven’t. the way that this is not a joyous victory, not for them.

    “come with me,” she says once she pulls herself together, “i have something i need your help with.”
     

    (“i believe it is some kind of sickness with his spirit,” the healer replies in a soft voice.

    “the tree that has been made into a boat cannot return to being a tree,” uncle says, “but still, that boat may one day set sail. he lives, and so there is hope.”)

    Summary

    In a world where everyone takes a test and is classified as a Dom, Neutral, or Sub. The test also reveals their subcategory. You are marked forever with a symbol for your classification.

    When Prince Zuko is classified as not only a Sub, but a Little at that, Firelord Ozai mutilates and banishes the 13 year old prince.

    This will take place in the days of Season 3, when Zuko joins the Gaang at the Air Temple after burning Toph's feet on accident.

    Summary

    Zuko can almost taste it. Can almost taste the red of sunset bleeding into his veins, the calm power of steady breath in his lungs as he stands to shed the cloth draped across his shoulders.

    Zuko and his alters accidentally save the world with Aang after an uncomfortable encounter with Captain Zhao drags Zuko, kicking and screaming, into "self" discovery.

    Written by an author with DID/OSDD. Main themes are recovery, communication, and corny humour.

    Summary

    it doesn’t matter. zuko’s not upset, because he doesn’t need to be upset anymore. he doesn’t have to worry about it, because he won’t be around to see that future. it doesn’t matter anymore. he can let go. 

    he feels relieved, almost.

    ...

    (“do we need to go to the hospital?” uncle says when he finally looks up.

    zuko hides his eyes, a feeling of shame washing over him as he nods and mumbles, “yeah.”)

    Summary

    "The way Zuko was running to greet him was a breath of fresh air—it was the rays of sun on a gloomy day, the rainbow after the rain.

    That joy and that vulnerability that came along with being a human person is part of what made Zuko so beautiful, it’s what made him shine and light up the room, what made his heart beat faster.

    … it’s what made the vines in Sokka’s body crawl, what made his stomach writhe in pain as they continued to grow.

    The very person who gave him life, who made him feel alive, was the very person sucking the life out of him."

    Summary

    Once Azula’s face was freshly cleaned, the young girl’s eyes hungrily zoned in on Zuko’s cone, which wasn’t even half way finished yet.

    “Zuzu,” she began, hopping over to her brother and plopping beside him on the bench. “Are you going to finish that?” She pointed at the cone.

    Zuko narrowed his eyes suspiciously, inching away from Azula. “Yeah, I’m gonna finish it.”

    “Well, you’ve barely made a dent,” Azula continued. “I can help you, if you want.”

    “Azula, you already had your ice cream,” Iroh gently chided, shaking his head but smiling either way.

    Summary

    touchofdust:
    I used to work at FNC back when Zuko was still shadowing his father and all i have to say is it wasn't good? Ozai is good at what he does, he's a businessman, hes not a great father tho at least from what i could see, (mind you I was a secretary for someone on one of the lower levels so i didn't see them often) it wasn't good, you could tell that he favoured Azula over Zuko who was born to take over the business. He would never yell at him on public but you could still see the distaste, he'd also often set Zuko up for failure around the office, the poor kid was humiliated constantly, it honestly made me cringe. I hope Zuko is doing ok now, the last day I saw him at the office he looked heartbroken.

    Spirit shenanigans shrink Zuko and he is not having a good time. Thankfully, the Gaang is there to help (and gush). While searching for a cure and adjusting to this new life, a coup breaks out, forcing Zuko to think on his feet. Looks like the rebels did not consider every single detail.
