    Summary

    Zuko decides to fight Azula in the Crystal Catacombs. This sets of a sequence of events that leads to Zuko being Aang's tour guide through the Fire Nation. Yes, this is basically a first half of season three with Zuko there fic. But this one is different, I swear! 1) There's no shipping. 2) The plot is very different from the show. 3) Fire Nation culture is explored in depth. 4) Sensitive topics never addressed in the show are explored in depth. So it's different, see!

    Summary

    Fate turns a little differently, and Zuko ends up being raised far away from the royal palace- and with dragons. But no matter how things change, one thing remains the same- that it's his destiny to teach the Avatar firebending, and to fight against the Fire Lord. That's the easy part. The hard part? Literally everything else.

    (or, local feral firebender does his best)

    Summary

    [“Are you dead?” Are the first words that come out of Zuko’s mouth. Lu Ten winces. He’s barely adjusted to the idea himself, but he still wasn’t expecting Zuko to reach that conclusion so fast. He can’t lie to him.

    He nods.

    “I am.”

    “But you’re real.”

    “Yeah. Real dead.”

    He tries for a joke but Zuko bursts into tears instead.]

    Or,

    Lu Ten makes a promise, Lu Ten dies. Lu Ten comes back.

    Summary

    [There’s a child underneath Fire Lord Zuko’s desk.

    He doesn’t realize this until he sits down and tiny hands wrap themselves around his ankles, and Fire Lord Zuko definitely does not shriek and backpedal away at the unexpected touch.

    He definitely does do that but Gou, the single guard he’s agreed to let shadow him, is kind enough not to mention it.]

    Or,

    In which Fire Lord Zuko is a total mess and somehow people manage to love him for it anyway.

    Summary

    For his first thirteen years, Zuko was raised in a palace. And yet somehow, it's the three years outside the Fire Nation that seem to count more – at least to the palace staff, who act like he's been raised by fox-wolves.

    At first, this only annoys Zuko.

    Until he begins to think that the Fire Nation needs more than a formerly-banished prince.
