    Summary

    Saying he's terrified is an understatement. Zuko kneels before the Avatar and his friends, completely at their mercy. The last time he was in this position his father-

    However, they didn't hurt him.

    Zuko is allowed to stay with their pack. After Katara's warning, he knows he hasn't been accepted. It makes sense. They want him at a distance.

    So why is the water tribe boy constantly staring at him?

    Summary

    This is an AU starting at the end of Book 1. Zuko grew up in a difficult situation, but his life was made a little bit brighter by his best friend, an Imperial Firebender named Onori, and his little brother, Prince Yuzo. During the three years of his banishment Zuko kept in contact with them through letters. By the time of the siege, however, Onori and Yuzo have started to worry about Zuko's mental health and decide to come help him. How will Zuko react to emotionally healthy relationships with loved ones? Will he go after the Gaang with back up or find himself dragged into an early redemption? How many family members is Ozai willing to kill?

    TLDR: Zuko has a best friend and a little brother. They are good for his wellbeing.

    Summary

    Sokka, the captain of the fabled White Raven ship, is having a marvelous time pirating fire nation vessels, returning to port for rendezvous with various lovers he's made along his travels, and sailing the seas with no leader to serve. Until, of course, his crew pulls a body out of the water. Then they find another person half-dead that the first one feels an obligation to save.
    Maybe all of this would have been easier if they’d been dead when he took them aboard.

    Summary

    The fire returns on his tongue. He spits anger at the Avatar, because anger is the only thing he’s ever known, or maybe it’s the only thing he remembers, the only thing he’s ever been taught, because firebending may come from the breath but it has only ever been red-hot and mad. It licks at his skin and leaves pink-red marks he traces with his fingertips years down the line. His scars never seem to fade.

    Summary

    When a child is conditioned to believe that abuse is normal, anything slightly different is a crime, an abnormality. The child learns that every action has a hidden agenda, that kindness is a ploy to get the upper hand on them. They learn that any sign of weakness is a cause for punishment. They learn that fear will be their biggest enemy and will be the culprit for their death.

    Zuko was lucky to be born, his father's disappointment.

    Or;

    A look into Zuko's childhood and the years following his banishment.

    Summary

    Zuko cannot go home.

    He stands on the deck of his ship, the air growing ever colder, and he longs for nothing more than the warm embrace of the Fire Nation. He cannot go home, he reminds himself. But, spirits. He wants nothing more.

    [Or; lessons concerning trauma, reclaiming the past, and the changing definition of home.]

    Summary

    His father was within his right to hurt Zuko, but that didn’t mean that Zuko wanted to share that. His shame was his own, his inability to produce a simple flame, the burden he placed on his family, it was all his own to handle and process. Zuko selfishly didn’t want those same feelings to crawl to anyone else, he didn't want them to know about the pain he carried with him every day.

    “I fell when doing my forms,” Zuko says, plastering a smile over his face. It isn't the first time he lied, and it most definitely won't be the last.
    .
    .
    .
    Exactly what the title says, the five times Zuko had to lie about an injury and the one time he felt safe enough to tell the truth.
