    Summary

    The Jasmine Dragon comes into the mall, and apparently all it takes for Sokka to forget everything he's ever learned from the imaginary sales associate ethics rulebook are a pair of pretty gold eyes and plush lips turned up in a scowl.

    (At least the cute but grumpy tea shop server has absolutely no qualms in giving Sokka the same energy right back.)

    --
    “Sometimes,” Sokka declares into his headset. “I feel like I’m going through the five stages of grief every time I walk into this place. Or like I’m capable of murder. I haven’t decided yet."

    “With those scrawny little arms? You better start asking for some heartfelt condolences cards from everyone instead, Sokka."

    Summary

    Eventually, Zuko realizes that Sokka searches for ways to let his hands linger—and he gives Sokka every opportunity he can, until they're standing on the precipice of naming what they are, and what all of their gentle touches really mean.

    All they need, it turns out, is a ruined tassel, some yarn, and an excuse for Sokka to reach out to Zuko's hair, yet again.
    -
    He sighs, and very nearly misses it when Sokka softly asks, “helping?”

    Zuko can only bring himself to languidly nod, and savor the feeling of being so fully held.

    Summary

    They didn’t talk about the kiss. 

    They didn’t talk about the kiss the day after, or the day after that, or the day after that. Zuko tried to not even think about the kiss, with limited success. He reasoned with himself that there was nothing to discuss. It was barely a kiss, just a drunken brush of Sokka’s lips against his own, and Sokka in all likelihood didn’t even remember. 

    OR

    Zuko keeps getting dragged to parties (which he hates) with his best friend Sokka (whom he loves), who keeps kissing him (yay!) but only when Sokka is seemingly not sober (boo...)

    Summary

    "Every year, on that day, we should have a holiday to celebrate love. On that day everyone in the Fire Nation became free to love who they love, and I can’t think of anything better worth celebrating," Sokka beams.

    Zuko tries to not visibly melt at this. “That sounds perfect. How would one celebrate this holiday?” 

    “Oh, I have a few ideas,” Sokka says in a tone that tells Zuko he’s been thinking about this for longer than he’s letting on. “I think it would be best to show them to you, though. Are you doing anything tonight?”

    Summary

    The first time he learnt the layout of Zuko’s street, it was a diagram drawn for him on a napkin - now it resides easily in his mind. Left after the stop sign, through a back passageway to cut the journey shorter. He’s walked these same roads a hundred ways, a hundred times, often alone, but sometimes with a friend, hands swinging a little too close. He's never thought twice of it. He's walked these roads a hundred times, but tonight, he runs.
     

    The ballad of Sokka and Zuko, told over thirteen years.
