    Summary

    Zuko is a lot of things. Impulsive and awkward? Of course. Angsty? With this face, it's kinda hard not to be. But stupid? Definitely not. The phrase emotionally dense may apply, but the term "unintelligent" most certainly does not.

    Sokka likes to think the world is fairly simple. Humans his age and older? Potentially attractive. Fire Nation? Bad. Magic Water? Annoying. Family? Important. He's not stupid, and he's not a bad guy if you ask almost anyone. Just a bit naive and a bit stubborn. And if you ask him, all this spirits mumbo jumbo is getting ridiculous and he'd like it to stop please. But the spirits are very spiteful.

    Summary

    In which a helpful sea monster rescues an injured human hatchling (read: kidnaps a recently banished Zuko) and causes headaches for the rest of the world.

    Not that the Gaang cares. They now have a portable heater that is just slightly vague on how he, a fire bender, ended up on an island and exiled.

    Summary

    A collection of ideas and one shots. Mostly won’t be developed or fully written, but you never know (I have no self restraint and I’ll probably write them all, who am I kidding?)

    Part 1. AU where Zuko has 30% less impulse control and 1% better decision making. He makes a different choice in the Crystal Catacombs

    Part 2. Zuko and Sokka celebrate Halloween

    Part 3. Piandao accidentally acquired a child

    Summary

    When King Bumi and his friend Iroh ask Aang to take Iroh’s grumpy nephew with him to the North Pole, Aang thinks it’ll be pretty cool. But when the Gaang's new friend Zuko turns out to be a firebender, that’s just the beginning of their problems.

    Summary

    “Aang,” Sokka says very slowly, “are you telling me that you just conned an amnesiac—“

    “It was an accident!” Aang cries.

    “—that you just accidentally conned an amnesiac Prince Zuko into betraying the Fire Nation?” Sokka corrects, without missing a beat.

    Aang tries one last time to defend himself. “I panicked,” he says.

    “Aang.”

    "I didn't think he was serious at first!"

    "Aang."

    Aang sighs. And hangs his head. “...Yes,” he says miserably.

    Katara and Sokka are never letting Aang go off on his own after this.

    (In which Zuko loses his memory after escaping from Pohuai Stronghold, Aang cons him into becoming his firebending teacher, and the Gaang continues their streak of kidnapping random children.)

    When the Avatar emerges from an iceberg, Sokka is reluctant to join him on a journey around the world. He finds himself wondering about an old childhood friend.

    Zuko, having been banished at the age of thirteen and separated from his uncle at fourteen, decides to do what any logical teenager would do in his situation: don a mask and become a pirate.

    Summary

    A hard knock to the back of the head leaves Zuko, Prince of the Fire Nation, without memories. Iroh suggests they all make a trek to the North Pole together to help heal his nephew's head. Aang, being the kind, altruistic boy he is, agrees immediately. Katara is wary but she can't give up this one chance to learn from other Waterbenders. And Sokka? He doesn't trust anyone from the Fire Nation, amnesiac or not!

    An alternate retelling of Avatar, where Zuko joins the Gaang almost immediately and all the shenanigans that follow.

    Summary

    Prince Zuko was born on the new moon in the dead of winter. Bad sign, silently whispered scared servants. Bad sign, his mother's heart clenched. Bad sign, scoffed his grandfather, the man who ravaged the world for decades and gathered power and wealth like dragons, whom he once ordered to slay. Born without the presence of Lord Agni or even his sister, Lady Tui, prince was a weak babe without firebending spark in his eyes. His father, a cruel man hiding fierce flame in his eyes and cold chunk of ice instead of heart, was ready to kill him for this. But the absence of spark that was used to be in the eyes of all members of the royal family for many centuries wasn't the only difference between Zuko and others.

    The boy's eyes were golden, a piercing bright color so intense that even the almost inhumanly light amber of royal family's eyes seemed to be dull in comparison.

    For the young prince, this will be both salvation and curse.

     

    /Or au, where Zuko, born with golden eyes, can see the future at the cost of his own pain and suffering./

    Summary

    “What do you plan to do now that you have found the Avatar’s bison? Keep him locked in our new apartment? Should I go put on a pot of tea for him?”
     
    -Uncle Iroh, Lake Laogai, Season 2 Episode 17

     

    Zuko unfolded a small, fuzzy green blanket and tossed it over Appa’s head like a hood. “And this is Appa’s favorite blanket, it’s too small for him, obviously, but he really seems to like it and-”

    Appa licked Zuko, knocking off his hat and leaving him dripping. Zuko quickly grabbed his hat and slammed it back on his head but the damage was done - the Avatar had recognized him.

    “I can’t believe it,” Aang breathed, staring at Zuko wide-eyed.

    Zuko stared back, trying to decide if he could make the jump out the window. The drop would be pretty steep, but he really didn’t want to fight off the Avatar in their new apartment with its nice furniture and Uncle’s tea collection in the corner and-

    “Appa found me a firebending teacher!”

    Summary

    Zuko is getting nowhere with his approach to hunting the Avatar- Every single time he thinks he has that slipperly little kid, he gets away somehow. He needs a new approach.

    This new approach. . . Well, it wasn't supposed to involve cuddle piles, good jokes, friendly travels, helping people, seeing the fire nation's true impact. . . Zuko might have to change the plan a bit more than originally intended.

    Summary

    Katara knew her brother like the back of her hand- how could she not? They grew up as each other's only friend and playmate in the already close-knit Southern Water Tribe. And because of this, she knew better than anyone that her brother was not okay.

    That wasn't the end of the world though, there had been plenty of times in the past when her older brother would get lost in his head and retreat into himself. No, that wasn't the issue.

    The problem was that this time, she had no idea how to fix it.

    And the only person that knew how might just be Zuko, their ex-enemy and the (ex?) Crown Prince of the Fire Nation.
