    Summary

    It has been said that fire benders, when in love, create a spark so bright, it could rival Agni himself. It’s probably just a fairy tale, but Zuko is a little worried, and very embarrassed, when little lights start to appear whenever he is near a certain old friend. Surely it’s nothing. It must have something to do with the fact that he can't control his inner fire. Yep that's totally it.

    Zuko has returned home to the Fire Nation after nearly five years, and everything feels different. He’s not really sure who he is and what he wants out of life, but he just knows that something is off. Luckily Mai is right there beside him supplying blunt, yet helpful feedback. This is a story that gives Mai and Zuko the story they deserve with a little extra magic and plot thrown in for fun.

    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

    Girl meets boy. Boy meets girl. Boom, they fall in love and live happily ever after. That's how the story goes. But this isn't a fairytale and Katara isn't a princess. She's just a regular, degular, shmegular girl. And the prince? Well, he's caught between trying to find himself and continuing a legacy.

    A modern, nonbending, AU where Zuko is good, Ozai isn't an evil dictator, and Azula isn't mentally ill or on the verge of a breakdown. Uncle Iroh is still Uncle Iroh.

    Summary

    Sokka only ever wanted to be a badass cop. Saving people. Stopping criminals. That sort of thing. But his job was a lot harder than that, especially when jerks with big scars, shitty attitudes, and buckets of trauma decided to insert themselves into his life. Well, Sokka was the one to insert himself... But that's a whole lot of unnecessary detail. All that mattered was Zuko, the tattoo artist in the Middle Ring of Ba Sing Se that was more than Sokka could have ever asked for.

    OR

    A bisexual disaster of a cop meets an angry, sad, damaged boy, and they fall in love.

    Summary

    Katara still hates him.

    Sokka is following some Water-Tribe-Father-Figure around with stars in his eyes.

    Aang is pouting because his friends are paying more attention to the Water-Tribe-Father-Figure than him.

    Oh, and there is a Water-Tribe-Father-Figure now. And Zuko has a wonderful track record with Fathers.

    Overall, this is a /great/ time to be Zuko.

    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

    “I need your help with something,” Sokka murmured, looking out towards the horizon. 

    “With what?” Zuko asked. Sokka could see Zuko turning towards him in his peripheral, but he didn’t look away from the ocean. 

    “I need you to teach me how to firebend.”

    Zuko sucked in a breath. “Sokka- I can’t- I can’t teach a nonbender how to bend, that’s just not how it works. I’m sorry.”

    Sokka huffed. “I’m not a nonbender."

    ---

    Or, the AU of all AU's, where Ozai banishes Zuko to the South Pole, Sokka can firebend, Zhao is the season one villan, and Kanna is Over Their Fucking Shit.

    Summary

    When Zuko was young, his older cousin was his best friend. Now, years later, he runs into someone similar--a smiling face, a prankster, a kind soul.

    The only problem? He's on the Avatar's team. That, and he cracks jokes worse than Uncle's.

    A story in which Zuko gets sick around "Zuko Alone" time and ends up in the Gaang's care, against his will. Katara and Aang are wary. Sokka loves having a captive audience for his puns. And Toph. . . well, she's sensing something more to this angry firebender. Cue Zuko-does-not-like-the-depths-of-his-soul-being-pried-out-thank-you and eventual Ultimate Siblings.

    Summary

    “Zuko was weak.
    Azula excelled at everything. Zuko excelled at nothing.
    Azula was a firebending prodigy. Zuko would probably burn himself with his own fire if it was possible.
    Azula was four. Zuko was eight, yet he struggled with most things she was already able to do.
    Azula’s skin was soft and white: untouched. Zuko’s was rough, red and ridden with scars. Scars that he deserved because there was nothing Zuko was good at.”

    OR:

    Zuko can’t do anything right. But when Piandao teaches him the way of the sword, he finds his talent as well as a safe haven he could flee to when the world becomes too much.

    Prequel to Lost and Found, a yet to be published AU in which Aang leaves the ice nearly two hundred years after the genocide.
