    Summary

    Ozai’s voice shook. “I…I don’t want to forget that you’re my son.”
    Zuko’s vision blurred. “Why don’t you want to forget me?” The words cracked as they came out of his mouth. He didn’t understand why he was getting emotional over this.
    Ozai buried his face in his hands as he fell to the floor. “Because,” Ozai’s tone grew timid, “I love you.”

    (What does a Fire Lord do when he learns that his abusive father is dying from an incurable disease? Zuko still cares for Ozai, really, he does. But should he forgive him after everything Ozai did to his family and nation?)

    Summary

    After Zuko's Agni Kai with Ozai and he learns of his banishment, Zuko flees the Fire Nation afraid, confused, and alone, leaving his uncle behind who has a chance to grow close to Azula. Zuko understands much sooner that his father never loved him and finds himself in an Earth Kingdoms forest surrounded by boys who want to free their kingdom from the Fire Nation. Zuko joins the Freedom Fighters claiming to be a nonbender from the Earth Kingdoms, growing in confidence in himself. When it is reveled that he is a firebenders, Jet is forced to understand not all members of the Fire Nation are war mongers and both boys are significantly less angsty when the Gaang shows up.

     

    Also a couple of solid chapters of Zuko getting to vibe and bond with the Southern Water Tribe because if that isn't in an ATLA fic is there even a point?

    Summary

    Kyanna of the Northern Water Tribe could not see herself helping the last hope for a people she had thought to be extinct. She could not foretell about a fire nation princess who needed a little compassion and love. She had not meant to see her brothers and sister, much less join this expedition.
    But she did. Destiny is a funny thing. Who knew where hers lied?
    She came to help and heal, and was rewarded a story to tell for generations.
    And, boy, did she did tell it.

    Summary

    How one Earth Kingdom Noble adopted a starved Fire Nation Prince, gave him a couple of accidental therapy sessions, promised to insult Ozai to death, and much more...

    How the same Earth Kingdom Noble many years before befriended Fire Nation Swordmaster, terrorized a town together, and lived their lives being walking nightmares for everyone around. Xaalo continued even when their ways parted (Pi too, but more discreetly).

    Summary

    Zuko - or rather Lee - became a scribe in the Beifong's estate. It's a fresh start, with a solid cover story, no disgrace, and failure attached to his name. Yet, he still tries to find a way to make things right, to regain all that he's lost. He hasn't given up on being himself.

    His plans get interrupted by a blind girl, definitely too enthusiastic about illegal fighting rings.

    or

    Zuko being a scribe, slow-burn bond with the greatest earthbender, and whooops! No one called the Gaang but they finally arrived (Zuko is not pleased).

    Summary

    Hakoda's fostered and adopted a bunch of kids since he had his own and married his husband. There's one more spot left in his house full of love and happy little ones.
    Zuko's sent to America for his own safety after getting removed from his father's house. But he's nine years old and probably too much for anyone to care for after what happened in November.

    Or: Hakoda takes in a scared little boy from Korea and shows him that he's worthy of love and a proper family.

    Summary

    The attack on the Northern Water Tribe goes differently, Aang and the ocean spirit don’t destroy the entire Fire Nation fleet, only most of them.

    Zhao escapes, taking Sokka and a few other Water Tribe men as prisoners. Knowing Sokka is traveling with the Avatar he gets sent to Zhao’s “special prison camp” that is hidden near the Earth Kingdom colonies.

    Sokka gets a taste of the real war, not the war that he thinks he knows from traveling with the Avatar. While Zhao’s prisoner, he struggles to survive the inhuman conditions. Alone and thought to be dead, he feels himself slowly losing hope.

    Seeing a familiar face brings back his hope, even if that face is the scarred Prince of the Fire Nation.

    Sokka and Zuko come together to survive and end up depending on each other for a lot more than they ever thought possible.

    Summary

    Zuko's three-year mission started with an abandoned Air Temple. The Western one, to be precise.

    It wouldn't be anything to remember, really, if one of the spirits didn't feel the need to show this stray firebender exactly how angry it was with his people.

    A.N. Zuko has no self-preservation instinct. And also he is searching for the Avatar, a.k.a. - runs towards any weird spooky spirit shit he hears about. Don't tell me that that is not a recipe for disaster. Because it is, and I will happily provide :)

    Summary

    “I’m never getting out of here. I’ll be stuck here until I turn into a twisty, spotty plant,” he moaned, picturing himself curling up into a ball and being overtaken by the plant life.

    “Don’t be like that Sokka!” a voice said suddenly, sounding incredibly familiar. It caused Sokka’s head to dart up in surprise, frowning in confusion when he didn’t see anyone around him.

    “Aang?” Sokka shouted, standing again. “Where are you?”

    “Right here!” Aang said, his voice sounding right next to Sokka’s and causing the Water Tribe warrior to leap away with a shriek, tripping over a rogue root that had suddenly appeared behind him and landing on his ass harshly.

    “Dude!” he yelled indignantly from the ground, vigorously rubbing his abused butt cheek as he glared up at the concerned airbender above him. “Warn a guy next time.”

    “Sorry Sokka,” Aang replied, looking genuinely worried for his friend. “I thought you knew I was there.”

    “How?! You appeared out of nowhere!” Sokka exclaimed incredulously.

    Summary

    People often pity the homeless. Zuko hated that.
    He didn’t need their pity. He didn’t need their help. He was perfectly capable of surviving on his own, regardless of what his sister might say. She laughed when he told her that he was running away. Rolled her eyes, mocked him for his weakness and made comment on his immaturity. But Zuko proved her wrong. It had been months since he had stepped out of those doors, and he was still standing.

    Zuko prefers to be homeless then to put his uncle out of pocket. The gAang ends up turning things around

    Summary

    There were rules that they had to abide by in order to live. Azula knew she didn't have many; Zuko knew he had a little more than his sister. Little by little, there were more things in life that they had to look out for. It all came crashing down when a strange man introduced himself into their little family.

    Happiness was conditional, and it was built on a web of lies too loose to hold itself up without assistance.
