    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

    [Zuko’s phone vibrates underneath his pillow.

    Still half asleep, Zuko bats at it blindly, instinctively trying to turn off an alarm...that won’t turn off. Groaning a little, he manages to open his eyes just enough to blink blearily at the screen, and it takes an embarrassingly long time to register that the reason he can’t turn his alarms off is because someone’s trying to call him.

    Not just someone—Sokka is trying to call him.

    It’s 3:23 in the morning.]

    Or,

    Sokka gets into a car accident. He and Zuko both have some feelings about it.

    Summary

    And then the countries start filing out onto the stage, one by one. And then it’s their turn to step out of the tunnel, into the heart of the National Stadium, into the blinding lights and the deafening cheers and the music that pounds into every bone in his body. And then it finally hits him.

    He’s here.

    Sokka is twenty-two years old when he qualifies for the Olympics.

    Summary

    [Zuko has been awake for thirty-six terrible, horrible hours.

    And now it’s nearly three am, the apartment is empty, and Zuko is so tired that he feels dangerously close to crying. It’d be easier if Sokka were here, but he’s out with some buddies from class. Zuko had been invited too, but declined for sleep-related reasons, and in retrospect he wishes that he’d gone out instead. He’d undoubtedly still be fairly miserable, but at least he wouldn’t be alone.

    Ugh. The world is awful. Everything is awful.

    Zuko wants a lobotomy.]

    Or,

    Zuko and Sokka have an arrangement.
