    Summary

    When Azula is nine, she becomes an only child. She hears the Fire Lord call for Zuko's life, and in the morning, her mother and brother are gone. Azula may be young, but she isn't naive. She knows what happened to them.

    Which makes it all the more surprising when Azula tracks the Avatar down and fights his group of peasant friends, only to find herself staring into an eerily familiar face.

    Summary

    Sokka looked around the throne room with interest. “I always wondered what the world was like from up here - must be nice looking out at your adoring subjects.”

    “Being the Fire Lord is pretty dull,” Zuko said glumly, "unless you enjoy hearing people bicker about taxes. After a while, thwarting the occasional assassination is basically a form of stress relief."


    In which Fire Lord Zuko and Ambassador Sokka get drunk, go fishing, watch theatre, uncover a conspiracy, visit a teahouse, destroy a historical monument, and reckon with the painful legacy of the past – but not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    “your dad,” sokka starts, then swallows hard. “your dad dueled you, burned half of your face off, and then banished you because you spoke when you shouldn’t have?”

    guilt festers and bubbles like black tar in zuko’s chest. “i didn’t just speak. i questioned and insulted one of his highest-ranking generals—but the man was planning a massacre! he shouldn’t have—” zuko clamps his mouth shut, his teeth clicking together, and swallows thickly. “i mean. i found the tactic he proposed very startling, but it wasn’t my place to question such things. i’m sure he had his reasons.”

    “tui and la what the absolute fuck,” sokka whispers.

    [zuko gets imprisoned with sokka and katara during the winter solstice, and some very unfortunate things come to light. alternatively: the gaang kidnaps adopts zuko in book one after discovering just how awful his father is.]
