    Summary

    Zuko was seven when he sat in front of his sister's bedroom door, determined to protect her from the strange man drinking beer with his father.

    He was eight when he saw his mother lying in a pool of her own blood.

    He was ten when the strange man asked him what he would do to protect his sister.

    He was eleven when his father burned half of his face for spilling untold secrets.

    He was twelve when CPS took him and his sister away, only to give them over to be under Iroh's care.

    He was thirteen when he met people he wanted to be friends with.

    He was eighteen when he finally realized he was part of a crazy, lovable family.

    ***

    OR -- Zuko's life goes from a living hell to a tolerable heaven.

    Summary

    In one short month, Zuko’s life changes irrevocably: two family members die, another disappears, and he is classed as an omega. Grasping for a sense of stability and for his father’s approval, he dives headlong into an engagement with Zhao, a naval officer with ties to an important noble family. Zuko's been told this marriage is vital to the unity of the Fire Nation, but whether Zhao cares about anything other than his own ambitions remains to be seen.

    Summary

    [ He drinks the tea and tries not to look uncomfortable as Zhao moves closer and closer. He doesn't know how, but somehow every time he blinks the man is closer. He should say something, but what? He’s not actually doing anything wrong. (He should move closer; Zuko is his prince, and he should be hanging on his every word. It was perfectly reasonable.)
    If Uncle were here, objecting would earn a stern look and a proverb on the nature of politeness and being receptive to your conversation partners.
    Zuko says nothing.
    Zhao is next to him now. He rests a hand on Zuko's thigh.
    He wants to say something, but his head feels like it’s stuffed with cotton and his tongue won't work properly. ]

    Wherever Zuko goes, Zhao always seems to be there, smirking & offering him tea. He doesn't want the tea-that-is-not-just-tea. But he can't explain why to his uncle, or tell him that the very thought of tea makes him want to scream (in rage, not fear, because princes don't feel fear).

    Summary

    Zuko has to fight for everything. Nothing comes easy to him and when after one particularly exhausting misadventure with a broken ship and the crushing lack of resources the boy had to come crawling to a port under Zhao's wing, Zuko comes to a realization that he will have to somehow get more money to fix his ship and restock. The boy stands before a choice. Will he burden his uncle or will he figure out something on his own?

    Summary

    The way Zhao looks down at Zuko is beyond creepy, and wanting to capture Aang doesn't explain tying them up in a row and tossing Zuko over a rock at hip height in front of them. Katara gets the sense that something terrible is about to happen, that Zhao is about to hurt Zuko badly.

     But surely he won't--

    Summary

    Now that Zuko knew what hunger was, he could see it everywhere. It was the combustion happening silently in leaves, grass, the heat on the back of his hands, the menace at the heart of the sun. Hunger was fire, eternal consumption. He had never understood his bending so well as he understood it now.

    Or, for that matter, his father.

    Zhao tortures Zuko. Song and Iroh try to make him whole. Dark-chocolate angst with a peanut-butter center.

    Or: Zuko survives an eating disorder.

    Summary

    Zuko can almost taste it. Can almost taste the red of sunset bleeding into his veins, the calm power of steady breath in his lungs as he stands to shed the cloth draped across his shoulders.

    Zuko and his alters accidentally save the world with Aang after an uncomfortable encounter with Captain Zhao drags Zuko, kicking and screaming, into "self" discovery.

    Written by an author with DID/OSDD. Main themes are recovery, communication, and corny humour.

    Summary

    Zhao wonders if the boy remembers his old name. It's three years since he's been called anything but 'boy', three years since he lost an agni kai to his own father, and was sent to the lightning-tamers to have the rebellion burnt out of his brain.

    Zhao's had him ever since. He's perfectly, despicably docile. Left alone, he does nothing, just stays sitting or kneeling where you left him. But when given orders, he'll do anything -- anything -- you ask him to.

    Summary

    Zuko was just trying to do something nice for the crew of The Dragon's Claw by giving them the night off to enjoy the festival. It wasn’t supposed to turn out like this. Zhao wasn’t supposed to be there. He didn't realize it until it was too late to run away.

    An alternate take on chapter seven of Better Than Hunting, where Sokka can turn shapeshift into a giant arctic wolf and has befriended Zuko as this wolf. Written as a gift for one of my followers on Tumblr.
