    Summary

    It starts like this: Zuko’s head is fucking pounding like it’s the morning after the Sun Festival, except he doesn’t open his eyes to find his friends in various piles around him, as tragically hungover as him. Instead, his eyelashes unstick slowly and painfully, and with the sunlight and the shock of green above him before he snaps his eyes shut again comes a young, mournful voice.
    “—we knew each other back then,” Aang is saying, from somewhere high and to Zuko’s left, “do you think we could’ve been friends?”
    or,
    Zuko stages a coup, finds his soulmates, goes to the past, and discovers that happiness isn’t unattainable— not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    When Zuko is thirteen he agrees to an Agni Kai. He drops to his knees and begs for mercy, he is given a burn bad enough to cause death. Agni watches with horror and decides to do something unspeakable. Tui tries to keep her brother from doing something irreparable but instead joins him.

    When Zuko is thirteen he agrees to becoming the vessel for Vaatu, the great spirit of chaos, becoming the first Avatar of his kind and inadvertently causing a divergence of destiny.

     

    Alternatively: a complete demolition and reckless disregard of canon, a copious amount of worldbuilding, and finding hidden fallacies all while trying to just end the war.

    In other words, creating chaos.

    Summary

    Zuko does not survive that first fateful Agni Kai.

    But no matter how much Ozai strives to pretend otherwise, the Old Gods are not dead.

    And the Old Gods are angry.
