    Summary

    Azula was released from the mental ward decades ago. She may have realized the error of her ways, but she wasn't going back to the palace of her downfall, and she didn't think she could face her brother again.
    That changed when fifty years later, her brother's grandson shows up on her porch, searching for the only person he knew can bend lightning - and asking for her to teach him.
    -
    A fix-it story about family, siblings, and also includes my headcanon on how Iroh II came to be able to generate lightning in the first place when no one else in the royal family after Azula could.

    Summary

    As the hours pass, and the courtyard gets colder, Zuko falls into a trance. The fire never falters, even though he’s never held a flame this long before. It stays steady and bright and burning, and it chases away the chill.

    Or: Zuko holds vigil. Again, and again, and again.

    Summary

    “I served under you, sir. In Ba Sing Se. That is in the, uh, first siege of Ba Sing Se.” The lieutenant swallows. “You were the best commanding officer I’ve ever had, sir.”

    “I was a different man then, lieutenant.”

    The man breathes, feels the audacity rise up in him, and wonders if it has anything to do with the Comet. “I think you’re still the same person, sir.”

     

    Iroh encounters a familiar face while fighting to liberate Ba Sing Se.

    Summary

    "So, are you Fire Nation?" The man’s tone isn’t quite accusatory, but his gaze pierces Iroh from across the Pai Sho board.

    Usually, he responds with I used to be or In a past life, I was… But today he is thinking of his son even more than usual, is too tired to dance around what he still knows is the truth.

    "Yes," he responds, finally.

     

    Iroh, one year after abandoning the siege.

    Summary

    "'Why...are you...helping me?'

    The man stops, considers for a moment. 'Because you fought for this village. You defended that boy from those Fire Nation soldiers. You possibly even killed them in the effort—'

    (Here, Iroh’s stomach gives a lurch, and he feels an urge to vomit entirely different to the previous one.)

    '—and when I saw you collapse, I knew that it was soul-sickness. And no one should have to endure that alone.'”

    Iroh, abandonment, and critical decisions. Or: what a broken general does after the siege.

    Summary

    "Maybe he'll just be a late bloomer," said Katara, hugging the baby close.

    "Or maybe he won't be a bender at all," Sokka suggested, ever-nonchalant. "You know, because that would be fine as well."

    "Of course it would be," everyone rushed to add, as they always did. Only after Sokka brought it up, though. He looked at the little bundle of crinkled, squishy human in his sister's arms and accepted the years of responsibility ahead of him.
