    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?

Not the one with lifeless smiles plastered on at all times. And He’ll do whatever is necessary to find the person trapped under skin.

    Summary

    Zuko is sixteen, scarred, and hunting the Avatar to restore his honor. He finds him in the South Pole, and the Avatar is exactly the old, powerful, master-of-all-elements Avatar that Zuko expected. Except it's still Aang.

     

    The episodes are getting more in-depth, so I am splitting them up to keep a decent length and semi-regular schedule for updates. The holidays might slow me down a little, but I am so excited to see where this goes.

    Summary

    When Azula met her brother in Ba Sing Se & told him he could come home, he believed her, even though she had made this exact offer before. This time there was no loose-lipped Captain to give the game away, & he was brought back to the Fire Nation not as a hero, but in chains.

    When he is dragged from his cell months later, he expects to be facing his execution, not his coronation.

    Summary

    How one Earth Kingdom Noble adopted a starved Fire Nation Prince, gave him a couple of accidental therapy sessions, promised to insult Ozai to death, and much more...

    How the same Earth Kingdom Noble many years before befriended Fire Nation Swordmaster, terrorized a town together, and lived their lives being walking nightmares for everyone around. Xaalo continued even when their ways parted (Pi too, but more discreetly).

    Or

    Xaalo's POV on events from Rock Bottom and a backstory of my favourite nobleman and not so mysterious Toothpick

    Summary

    I haven't written in years and this is my attempt at coming back to writing! I love Zuko/Mai dynamics, so this will be a collection of short stories about them, based on various prompts. Cute couple stuff and dead assassins are included.
    Mostly canon-compliant (save for the comics, haven't read a single one). Enjoy :)

    Prompts:
    1) Reading a book together
    2) Cuddling in a blanket fort
    3) "Don't try to rescue me. I don't need to be rescued" (if you clicked for the assassin tag, it's this one)
    4) Calming someone down
    5) Brading hair with flowers (the aftermath of the "assassin chapter" + Gaang appears)

    Summary

    Zuko might be having an existential crisis, and he really needs someone to talk to—and if that someone is his supposed enemy, well, that’s just his life at this point.
    Or, when Zuko saves Sokka from being arrested by claiming that Sokka is his boyfriend, it sets off a chain of events that leads to the Gaang defeating the Fire Lord early. Then, their largest issue is the fact that everyone seems to think that Sokka and Zuko should get married; after all, they are already dating.

    Summary

    Following the end of the war, the gaang splits up to continue their lives in times of peace. With everyone going their own ways and Toph the only one still at the Fire Nation place (as she didn't want to return home) becomes closer friends with Zuko during this time as she decides how to pass on the skill of metal bending. She refuses to leave him alone as she watches him sink into depression at the idea of being abandoned by everyone again. Considering they have one eye and two braincells that Zuko doesn't know how to use and Toph has never tired to use between them, their friendship causes mishaps as well as growth and support as they visit each other on various occasions usually resulting in Toph making a lot of enemies as she tries to drag the Fire Lord away from his duties. Then mix a solid amount of Zuko angst into that and here we go, this thing.
    Zuko and Toph just vibe in this and have no thoughts head empty, they have the very close sibling dynamic, not dating.

    In which Zuko has far too much trauma and receives love and affection from his odd group of friends and a therapist because lets be honest, he needs one.

    Summary

    Sokka no recuerda el momento exacto en que empezó a amar a Zuko, tal vez era que siempre lo había amado y aunque cada roce, cada mirada, cada aliento compartido se siente tan natural como respirar, todo es intenso porque este es Zuko de quien estamos hablando.

    Sokka y Zuko son amigos desde la infancia y crecer amándose es natural y fácil... hasta que ya no lo es.

    Summary

    “Stop doing that,” Zuko snapped.

    “Doing what?”

    “You go all silent. It’s like you’re afraid of me.”

    “I’m not-“

    “You are. It’s written all over your face. I’m not stupid, Sokka.”

    “Sometimes people are afraid of things they don’t understand.”

    Or:

    Five years after the war, Zuko loses his childhood memories. He forces Katara to erase them, in fear that his past will haunt his life forever. He doesn’t remember his father, or his sister. He doesn’t remember how he got his scar. He doesn’t remember why he he’d been banished. He doesn’t want to remember.

    Meanwhile, Sokka arrives at the palace to start his new role as Ambassador to the Southern Water Tribe, and his old feelings for Zuko resurface once again.

    (And he has no clue what to do about it).

    Summary

    AU: In which everyone is born with flowers in their souls. As they get hurt, the flowers are stolen and instead given to whoever hurt them. If they run out, they become basically living corpses. Zuko loses his last one and Iroh is desperate to save him. That's when Zuko meets Sokka, who might just be his cure.

    Note: if you happen to have seen this prompt before, it's because I used the exact same one for an old work by the same name. I decided to scrap that and completely rewrite it with different characters, so enjoy and please don't yell at me :)

    Summary

    Seven years after the end of the war, Zuko is genuinely happy for the first time in a long time. This all changes when Ozai's supporters free him from prison, taking Zuko with them. After a few days of trying to find out where Zuko is, Ozai demands his bending returned in exchange for Zuko's life, promising he would torture Zuko every day he has to wait. Trying to avoid returning Ozai's bending and losing their friend, the Gaang sets off to look for Zuko before something irreversible is done to him. When he is retrieved through one method or another, he is so broken, Zuko is barely a man that can be recognized as their friend anymore. It will take every resource they can find to put him back together.
