    Summary

    The boy was convinced, with the kind of terrified fervor that could only come from harsh words and painful blows, that every action he took, every thought he had, every impulse he forgot to suppress, was somehow a failure.

    Was somehow rude, or disrespectful, or wrong.

    Was somehow worthy of punishment.

    So Iroh made tea. And made space. And made plans.

     

    Iroh loves tea, and loves Zuko. Not necessarily in that order.

    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

    Zuko is a monster. He's known this since the moment he was old enough to know. His father had whispered it in his ear as he held Zuko's clawed hand in his own. Azula used the word like a whip, lashing it across his scale freckled limbs again and again.

    Yes, Zuko was a monster. But he was a prince as well, no matter what anyone said. And that was the one thing he would never stand to lose.

    Summary

During a much needed break, the Gaang reunites to celebrate Suki and Sokka's engagement. When an inconvenience joins the group, Katara and Zuko are faced with the decision to either give into their feelings which have been bubbling under the surface for nearly 7 years, or do what their respective nations expect of them.

    Or

    Zuko and Katara are lovesick idiots and life keeps getting in the way

    Summary

    Uncle had hugged him tight and asked him to please reconsider. Had practically begged Zuko to stay.

    But Zuko had worked too hard, for too long, not to take the opportunity to earn back his father’s love.

    It was only once he had opened the door to his childhood bedroom and found Azula’s new training room, once he had been shown to the empty spare room with no bed, once he had been refused dinner, once he had been struck around the face by rough, familiar hands, that he remembered that Ozai’s love was very different to Iroh’s.

    Ozai’s love hurt.

    Ozai’s love burned.

     

     

    The summer Zuko spent back at his father’s house the year he turned sixteen.

    Summary

    In the Blue Spirit, Aang never thinks to look under the Blue Spirit's mask. Who is this mysterious masked man, and why does he keep rescuing the Gaang, only to leave after every fight without a word? As the Gaang travels, their love for the Blue Spirit only grows, just as their hatred for the Fire Prince only deepens.

    What will happen when they realize that the two are, in fact, one and the same?

    Summary

    To commemorate the end of the Hundred Years' War and to ensure nothing like that ever happens again, the Four Nations agree to hold a Summit every year. Two weeks of political talks, cultural immersion and utter harmony. As Fire Lord, Zuko is in charge of hosting the first, set in the Fire Nation capital. As war-heroes, Katara, Sokka, Toph, Suki and of course Aang are in attendance also.

    However, as Katara finds herself yearning for a life beyond that of the Avatar's faithful companion, it appears that politics will not be the only tumultuous waters they have to navigate.

    Summary

    “Sokka seems almost startled and a bit guilty, before he relaxes again and says, his voice very soft, “Oh. Yeah, it’s gorgeous.” He sighs, before shaking his head and turning to face Zuko with a lopsided smile.

    The ex-prince feels his chest seize and wonders briefly if he’s having a heart attack. What the hell was that? he thinks, a little panicked. Abruptly, he realizes that Sokka is talking and blurts out, “I’m sorry, I- I zoned out. What were you saying?”

    Sokka laughs a little. “I was just asking how it is teaching Aang how to breath,” he explains.

    Zuko’s snort of laughter is more than a little forced but, hey, in his defense, he’s still a bit worried that he’s about to keel over from a heart attack.”

    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

    This is an AU for MuffinLance's "zuko botches his escape attempt and spends the rest of the war in prison then has to be Fire Lord having never gotten his redemption arc" Towards the Sun. This is more of a "zuko botches his escape attempt and spends the rest of the war in prison, and then when he becomes Fire Lord they leave him in prison" kind of thing.

    After committing treason, Zuko spends months in prison, and even after both his father and Azula go missing, the guards can't coax him out of his cell. And then the Avatar shows up. How's the Gaang supposed to talk to a Fire Lord who doesn't even believe he's the Fire Lord?

    Summary

    Zuko’s purpose in life had been drilled into his head since he could understand the words (and most likely even before that). He was the only son of a wrongfully banished prince of the once-mighty Fire Nation. He was the rightful heir to the throne. He would aid his father in overtaking the very nation that had cast him out for thinking differently, for wanting more, for trying to do what was best for his country. At least, that’s what he was always led to believe.

    Or

    The Mulan AU no one asked for
