    Summary

    After leaving Yon Rha’s village, Zuko finds a way to draw Katara out of her distress, and she begins to seek out his company. In late night conversations, they discover themselves and each other.

    This story picks up after The Southern Raiders and carries through and past the series—at some point in the middle, leaving canon behind. Because these two intense kids deserve the chance to feel known, banter with a worthy opponent, examine the legacy of the world they’re fighting for, and—of course—fall in love.

    Summary

    When the Hundred Years' War ended, Sokka and Prince Zuko did not part as friends; instead they were always bitter rivals. In Sokka's eyes, anyway. Years later, he still harbors his grudge, and Zuko still strides around like he's perfect - which is exactly the problem.
    It isn't such a big deal, until the Crown Prince Lu Ten invites the Southern Water Tribe to his wedding, and Sokka must represent Cheif Hakoda at the ceremony and reception. It isn't such a big deal, until he and Zuko nearly come to blows and ruin Lu Ten's wedding cake.
    To prevent panic and international strife, Sokka and Zuko feign a doting friendship, and Sokka perhaps begins to see Zuko in a different light.

     
    This is ABSOLUTELY a Red, White, & Royal Blue inspired AU. Oof.

    Summary

    Though Katara's family no longer has the standing they once did, she prides herself on her charm and ability to get along with everyone in the small society of their county. Except, that is, the taciturn, ill-tempered Mr. Zuko who has just taken up residence at Caldera Court. Despite trying their best to see as little of each other as possible, Katara's friends and associates have no interest in maintaining distance from the man she finds so distasteful. For Mr. Zuko's part, he would love to honor Miss Katara's wishes, except there is something quite alluring about the young woman that he does not wish to examine further. But in a town as small as theirs, avoiding someone is nearly impossible, especially when family is involved.

    This is not based on any specific Jane Austen novel or Regency era work, but takes inspiration from all of them.

    Summary

    “Right,” Sokka said as they began to walk to the Tube station, “But we’re going to need some, like, outside people. Trust me, I’m the planner of our little group. I know these things.”

    “... you’re the planner.”

    “I am!” Sokka shook his head at Zuko as they swiped their cards and descended towards the station. “Ye of little faith.”

    “Oh, I’m sorry,” Zuko smirked. “I’m trying to reconcile the genius “planner” and the bloke who let a random, definitely suspicious hotel clerk sleep over at his flat and then gave him breakfast cereal.”

    Or: the firebenders are no longer being subtle about their government takeover, and there's really only one solution: get a group of friends together and save London.

    Summary

    Under the leadership of Fire Lord Iroh, the Fire Nation has made every attempt to restore peace and make amends for the harm they inflicted during the Seventy-Year War. Their newest proposal is a literal proposal: a marriage to unite the Fire Nation and the Water Tribes.

    The Fire Nation offers Prince Zuko’s hand.

    The Water Tribes offer Princess Yue’s.

    Sokka is apparently the only person in the world who has a problem with any of this.

    Summary

    Sokka studies him again, a slow travel of his eyes across Zuko’s face. He looks worried, almost desperate, and opens his mouth to say something.

    Instead, he just nods. “I’ll be seeing you, then?”

    “Of course.”

    Summary

    He confronts Iroh about this information, telling him that soulmates must not be real, or at least not anything special, if the Fire Nation has dismissed the very idea for over a century. His uncle only shakes his head and tells him that the universe is all about balance, and that balance extends to who each one of them spends their life with.

    Zuko throws his hands above his head in frustration. “Uncle, you were the one who told me that soulmates don’t exist,” he shouts.

    Iroh smiles enigmatically. “No, nephew. I told you that there is nobody out there who makes up your other half.”

    “That’s the same thing!”

    His uncle’s dry chuckle follows him as he storms back to his chamber.

    Summary

    No one has told him to his face he was anything but a disgusting, disgraceful mistake of a creature for months now. And Jet becomes his way of telling his father that if they find him, he doesn’t care—even if he does—because he loves who he loves—even if Jet doesn’t love him back.

    (Or; Zuko, mistakes, and an attempt at love. Pre-covid.)
