    Summary

    After Zuko's Agni Kai with Ozai and he learns of his banishment, Zuko flees the Fire Nation afraid, confused, and alone, leaving his uncle behind who has a chance to grow close to Azula. Zuko understands much sooner that his father never loved him and finds himself in an Earth Kingdoms forest surrounded by boys who want to free their kingdom from the Fire Nation. Zuko joins the Freedom Fighters claiming to be a nonbender from the Earth Kingdoms, growing in confidence in himself. When it is reveled that he is a firebenders, Jet is forced to understand not all members of the Fire Nation are war mongers and both boys are significantly less angsty when the Gaang shows up. The Gaang inadvertently kidnap Zuko in a misunderstanding of the situation to be Aang's firebending teacher, altering his and the Gaang's path.

     

    Also a couple of solid chapters of Zuko getting to vibe and bond with Hakoda and get another dad who loves him because if that isn't in an ATLA fic is there even a point?

    Summary

    For three years, Zuko searched for the Avatar. But he'd never really thought that much about what would happen once he succeeded.

    Alternatively: Zuko actually has a plan for catching the Avatar at the North Pole. Somehow, it works. But after a few days of pai sho and tea, he begins to wonder if maybe it would've be better if it hadn't.

    Summary

    Suki didn’t put much stock in rumors, she knew they were over exaggerated, and could be twisted up until they were nearly unidentifiable from the original source.
    The thing about rumors, though, was that they were often based on the truth.

    Or, the first time Suki meets Zuko he burns down her village. The second time Suki meets Zuko he helps rescue her from prison. All things considered, she thinks they're pretty even.

    Summary

    He should have known something was going to happen. Really it should have been obvious. He just didn’t think the rest of the gang would have noticed a change in behavior. He didn’t think they cared enough to realize. He wouldn’t have, he chased them across the world for months and hurt them. Why would they care?

    Summary

    Mid-season one: when Zuko and Katara end up in the same Earth Kingdom town, heading in the same direction, Zuko (mostly by accident) kidnaps Katara. Except then she escapes, and kidnaps him. With the Fire Navy controlling the ocean, and Aang and Sokka waiting in Ba Sing Se, Zuko and Katara end up making the trek across the Earth Kingdom desert together - while continually taking each other prisoner. But the walk to Ba Sing Se is far too long to make in silence, and so Zuko and Katara talk, about brothers and sisters and nations and camel-bears, and somewhere in the desert, something begins to change.

    Summary

    “So what’d the ponytail say?”

    Zuko hesitates with the edge of the knife poised over Sokka’s scalp.

    “What?”

    “You said how you wear your hair says a lot In the Fire nation.” Sokka holds still so he doesn’t get scalped, and so unfortunate side effects of being so close to Zuko aren’t revealed, but it’s desperately hard to not lean over and elbow the omega. “So what’d your ugly ponytail say?”

    Summary

    When Katara speaks, she somehow says the right and the wrong thing: “Then he’ll forgive you. He will.”

    Zuko doesn’t know whether to scream or laugh. The noise that he makes is sort of both. “Let’s just say my family isn’t the forgiving type.”

    ***

    Zuko assumes that the others knows how he got his scar. Because…well, doesn’t everyone? His friends have travelled all over the world; they must have heard the rumours. It’s just something he’s got to live with.

    Or, Zuko wildly overestimates how much Team Avatar knows about him, a conversation goes slightly differently, and the gaang plots a murder because that’s what good friends do.

    Summary

    Ozai had stood against the fire, light casting a halo behind a man who pranced around as a Spirit. Thirteen-year-old Zuko had looked up to him, like mortals looked up to the heavens. He had looked up, thinking that there would be mercy. He had hoped that this was all a dream, a sick nightmare, and that Father would cradle his face and wake him up. He had prayed -

    And he had burned.

    Or, Ember Island brings up old memories, a boy tells a story, and the Gaang finds out about Zuko's scar.

    Summary

    He can’t stop it. Aang sees it happening, but there’s nothing he can do. He hadn’t even expected Zuko to be there, though maybe he should have, because Fire Lord Ozai is his father and he would want to keep his son safe during the eclipse - if they were anything like family should be.

    But they aren’t, and it's not him that Ozai’s lightning strikes.

    It's Zuko.

    (aka, zuko joins the gaang during the eclipse)
