    Summary

    Junji's life can be summed up in three parts, before Ba Sing Se, before Lu Ten and after the war.

    All three time periods meant something different to him.

    Prince Lu Ten's story is well-known, but his lover's remains a mystery, until now.

    Summary

    “You think I’d get away with that in house?” Zuko bites down his frustration. Agni, he really can’t do anything nice for her. Yes, it’s back-ended by motive, but she doesn’t know that.

    Then, to his utter shock, Katara laughs. Soft, restrained. So like all those times he’d say something that amused her on his ship. “You still haven’t learned to smile when you do that.”

    He’s spent months living off the memory of her smile, turning away like it was the suns glare and he only deserved to be burned. Now he stares at it, lungs shriveling the longer he forgets to breath. Wasn't he supposed to be doing something? He can’t remember. Can’t remember his own name, let alone pay attention to a nagging voice that sounds a lot like Azula’s. Not with Katara’s laugh still ringing in his ears.

    ~ ~ ~
    What is Katara supposed to do when she receives a secret note from Ba Sing Se's masked vigilante pointing her towards Pao's Family Teashop and the Fire Nation's most wanted fugitives are bussing tables and serving tea?

    My continued take on the series if Zutara were the series endgame. Feat Book Two canon-divergences, aged-up characters, secret plots, mature themes, pining, and Two Idiots in Love.

    Summary

    “Uncle, this place,” he gestured to the city outside of the bare window once the door was shut. “It’s a prison,” he folded his arms, staring holes into the floor. “I don’t want to make a life here.”

    “Life happens wherever you are, whether you make it or not. Be at peace, nephew. We are safer here than anywhere else in the four nations.” he spoke calmly, setting a hand on his shoulder. Zuko huffed, brushing his hand off with a shrug as he returned his gaze to the rest of their new home.

    //

    Zuko feels unsafe in Ba Sing Se, but maybe living there isn't such a terrible thing.

    Summary

    [With caution, and a little weirded out but definitely not complaining, Zuko places his own cup on the table.

    “What?” he says, eloquently.
    Sokka holds Zuko’s hand not with tenderness, but testing every finger and fingertip, the palm and the back and each knuckle, looking for a warmth that isn’t there, apparently. Surely, it’s all a formal examination, to figure out if Zuko’s hands are indeed as the initial premise stated. Nothing less, nothing more.

    “Your hands,” Sokka says, still not looking him in the face. “They’re so cold.”]

    Or, Zuko’s hands are cold, and Sokka is... deeply concerned.

    Summary

    SI/OC insert. The whole rebirth shebang never really interested me, until I was involved. As a waterbender during the Siege of the North with the memories of my past life, things go quite differently than in canon. Some things though, stay exactly (frustratingly) the same.

    Fair warning: Not much humour, mostly dark themes, social critique. Originally Posted on ffnet.

    Summary

    Jin is stuck. She wants so much more for herself than a life working at her parent's bakery in Ba Sing Se's lower ring, but problem is, she has no way to get out. And so Jin is static, living out monotonous days and dreaming of becoming something more. When she meets a kindly old man and his mysterious nephew, her life becomes so much more than she ever imagined it could be.

    Summary

    Zuko doesn't know he's been itching for a fight until Jet's in the tea house, raging about how they're Fire and tearing the soldier's blades from his sheath is the easiest decision he's made since they arrived.

    Summary

    He was an enigma; a puzzle she wanted to solve. She was an open book, and he wanted to get lost in her pages.

    This is an "alternate" version of the original story. The only difference is this one is expletive-free so my wonderful beta, FireLadyFae, could work on it with me. I'll still be posting to both versions every week!

    Summary

    Lu Ten’s sleep was haunted with images of the Avatar falling as electricity sparked through the air. A fear of failure gripped his heart and muddied his thoughts.

    On the opposite end of the spectrum, Iroh seemed to be faring just fine. That is until a figure from his fake past becomes all too real.

    The Fire Nation had always been a foreign place to Mako, no matter how much he wished otherwise. Traveling through the nation left him feeling somewhere between overwhelmed and excited.

    They all have a choice to make.

    After what happened below the City of Ba Sing Se, everything changed, even if the important things remained the same.

    As the days slowly ticked down to the end of summer, the three men find themselves clinging to moments of happiness and bracing themselves for the inferno to come. The future hinges on the actions of today and they won't fail again. They can’t.

    Updates every Sunday (unless otherwise stated). Hiatus until May 30th!

    Summary

    When Katara stays behind in Ba Sing Se to help plan the invasion, she ends up running into a familiar face in the Upper Ring of the city. But Zuko insists he's changed and that he's not trying to capture Aang anymore. And the crazy thing is, Katara believes him. With everyone else on their own adventures for the time being, Katara finds herself spending more and more time with the exiled Fire Nation prince. Days begin to include nights, and she wonders how in the world she is going to explain things when her friends return, but before she gets a chance, Ba Sing Se falls to Azula's hand, Zuko is captured, and Aang is nearly killed.

    Katara decides not to say anything until they can rescue Zuko, but a discovery made while hiding out in the Fire Nation might force her hand.

    Summary

    There were missing people everywhere -- mothers and fathers who’d run to avoid conscription, brothers and sisters and those in between who’d been picked off after angering the wrong person. One morning you might see your neighbor airing their laundry out, beating the dust from their carpets, and the next they were gone without a trace.

    The latter happened more often than not in Ba Sing Se.

     

    In which we get one of the many reunions we were cheated out of.

    Summary

    If this was the man she thought it was, the man who had been seemingly oblivious to her attempts at flirting for the past three years, and who Sokka claimed she just needed to ‘stop being stupid about,’ then she was going to enjoy his anonymity to be a bit more forward than she usually was.
