    What can I say? The sequel to Tempest in a Teacup, a decade and a half in the making. Zutara fandom classic, and for a reason.

    Summary

    "That blue twinkle in her eyes is dangerous, he decides. It almost makes him want to… He shakes his head, clearing his thoughts. The road. He has to focus on the road."

    In other words, how a troubled punk rocker finds love with the captain of the debate team (through car rides and a letter and a little help from their friends).

    Based on art by Pokidokies!

    This is my favorite high school AU ever, not just because it's a Katara being a debate nerd! Both of them fit so well into character, and they both comfort each other-- it's really the best of Zutara in this day and age, and it's something which is actually relatable. If you want a soft fic about comforting and crushes, this is for you <3 (and the art this is based on is beautiful!)

    Summary

    Long-term side effects of a lightning strike, Katara read, one night by flickering candlelight beside Zuko’s bed, her eyes itching with exhaustion: persistent neurological weaknesses, particularly nerve and muscle damage; severe headaches, trouble concentrating, and memory loss.

    Or: Katara navigates a post-war world trying to rebuild itself and particularly grapples with changes regarding Zuko.

    This is a story which hurts-- I'm normally not one for a lot of angst, but I'll do it for payoff and feels. It's a great use of the memory loss trope, and really reminds us about the duality of the Zuko that once was. The soulmate and red-string-of-fate aspect to it is also super interesting. Great and vivid writing, too! Will hit you in the feels.

    This is a little short punch in the face--there's something just that beautiful about intertwining canon-compliant Zutara and mythos. The show itself is shoved full with symbolism, and it's always amazing to see that further extrapolated and used in fic.

    Summary

    It had never been a choice.
    Not really.

    Zuko makes his decision in the catacombs of Ba Sing Se, and it changes him more than he ever could've expected.

    This is a ghost-AU, and it's morally really, really interesting, and it's utterly haunting . . . it will stay with you. The way Katara is killed and then stands by Zuko is absolutely poetic. I'm in love with this fic. It's not horror so much as it is about regret, forgiveness, and hope.
