    Summary

    “Sokka?” Zuko’s voice sounds more careful now. It’s not as frantic, more low and questioning in that rare soft tone that Sokka doesn’t think he’ll ever get used to.

    “Could you…” Sokka’s voice is barely above a murmur, “could you come pick me up?”. He’s looking dazed at his legs splayed out in front of him, watching the rain slide off of his sneakers.

    “Where are you?” Zuko says sternly.

    Or— Sokka has a comically shitty day, possibly year, but then Zuko comes into his life again to make it better.

    Summary

    Zuko’s the one who suggested the breakup in the first place. And when he did, and Sokka’s heart broke all over his face, Zuko just had to go and say, let’s still be friends. As if that would make things better. As if they even could build a friendship on the ruins of their relationship.

    Summary

    Sokka doesn’t remember when it started, exactly.

    He’s always had nights like this - when he wakes up hours before the rest of the world, and he tosses and turns until he can’t stand it anymore and accepts that his sleep for the night is over.

    or: sokka & sleep

    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.

    Summary

    His friend’s face was glowing as he stared up at the roof of the car with the softest smile. He looked like he was born in color, and had lived and breathed it ever since. Watery light danced across his cheeks, flickering across the bridge of his nose like he was the sky itself. 

    He had no right to look so magical just then.

    And something in Zuko’s chest either broke or mended itself, because he’d never seen the aurora before, but he imagined it looked a little like this.

    OR,

    zuko falls in love with sokka, sokka falls in love with zuko, a rainbow car wash gets involved. it’s more or less in that order.
