    Summary

    The fall acapella showcase is coming up soon, but the Gaang's acapella group, Avatar, suddenly has no bass! There's only one person who can solve this problem, and that's the new (hot) kid with the weird scar who definitely does not want any part in this. Cue Aang trying to adopt Zuko because now he finally has a Valid Reason, and Sokka being a part of Bi Panic.

    A Gaang Acapella AU because that's what I wanted to write.

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

    Summary

    With the war long over, the members of Team Avatar have moved on with their lives, adjusting to the new world. Sokka is living out his dream leading the Southern Water Tribe alongside his father, though life as a warrior isn't what he imagined and every day he struggles with the demons that have plagued him since the war. Zuko is in charge of the entire fucking Fire Nation and while he puts on a good face for the people, lives in a state of perpetual loneliness and self-hatred that no amount of repression can repair.

    Teetering on his breaking point and pressured by Katara to take some time off, Sokka decides to go on vacation to Kyoshi Island. Things don't go to plan, however, and he ends up in the Fire Nation, reuniting him with his old friend, the Fire Lord. Though at first he fully intends to stay on schedule and return to the Southern Water Tribe within a week, things change when Sokka realizes that Zuko is on the edge of his own breakdown and desperately needs help. It's not supposed to become more than friendship, but it does.

    And neither of them know what to do about it.

    Summary

    AU where Ozai is even less tactful than in the show, and things go horribly wrong. The Fire Lord orders him to kill both of his children, instead of just his firstborn son.

    Needless to say, this doesn’t fly well with Azula and Zuko.

    Summary

    Been seeing a lot more people talking about how Azulon didn't want Ozai to murder his own son. I agree with that. No way is he just going to trim the family tree like that, so this idea happened.

    Summary

    "Zuko dissolved the flame as quickly as he possibly could, landing hard on his ankle and falling to his knees. Somewhere in the back of his mind he registered that his ankle was probably injured now, but he couldn’t really pay any attention to that. All he could see was the terrified look that had been on his little girl’s face as fire—his fire—came rushing toward her."

    After an accident with Izumi, Zuko fears he may be turning out just like his own father.

    Summary

    [“your dad,” sokka starts, then swallows hard. “your dad dueled you, burned half of your face off, and then banished you because you spoke when you shouldn’t have?”

    guilt festers and bubbles like black tar in zuko’s chest. “i didn’t just speak. i questioned and insulted one of his highest-ranking generals—but the man was planning a massacre! he shouldn’t have—” zuko clamps his mouth shut, his teeth clicking together, and swallows thickly. “i mean. i found the tactic he proposed very startling, but it wasn’t my place to question such things. i’m sure he had his reasons.”

    “tui and la what the absolute fuck,” sokka whispers.]

    zuko gets imprisoned with sokka and katara during the winter solstice, and some very unfortunate things come to light. alternatively: the gaang kidnaps adopts zuko in book one after discovering just how awful his father is.

    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 doesn't exactly know what came over him when he reached out to stop a hit that was never going to come, because Hakoda is someone who loves his children, and Sokka was never in any danger. One way or another, it happens, and that's all that matters.

    "Zuko, may I talk with you?"

    "Of course, sir."

    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

    When Sokka was ten, he didn't want to believe in soulmates.

    If the Spirits were in charge of soulmates, then he didn’t want one. They took his mother from him, so they must have hated him. They’ll give him a bad soulmate.

    He told his father this much, and Hakoda chuckled, pulling his son in closer. “The Spirits, Sokka, are mysterious things. They have a plan for each and every one of us. Mine involved your mother, and your’s will involve a soulmate as well."

    “Thanks, Dad.” Sokka yawned, snuggling closer to his father.
    ---
    When Zuko was ten, he prayed to the Spirits for a soulmate.

    He wanted so badly for someone to understand his pain, wanted someone to listen to him when he told funny stories that he made up, wanted someone who would love him for who he was.

    He told his mother this much, and she smiled down at him, hauling her up into her lap. "The Spirits have blessed you already, my dear. Everyone will get a soulmate, but you have to understand that as a prince of the Fire Nation, your duties to the nation will always come first. Promise me you'll never forget that."

    "I promise, Mom." he said, before bounding out of her lap and off towards the turtleduck pond.

    Summary

    Sokka's finally decided to join his school's budding agriculture program, after lots of pressure from both Suki and Katara. However, he wasn't expecting to get thrown back into science fair, or to be the assigned partner of the Self-nominated Class Emo, Zuko. Maybe he shouldn't have signed up for this after all.

    Then again, baby ducks and baby goats might make everything worth it. And so might a new boyfriend.

    (Or; Zuko and Sokka meet in FFA and the rest is history.)
