    “Hello, my name is Joo Lee,” says a young man in cheery spring green, his smile stretched to the point of pain. “I have been given the great honor of showing the Avatar around Ba Sing Se.”

    “Zuko?!”

    Summary

    [ “There’s a vampire in our dungeon,” Sokka says casually when Aang and Katara stumble out of Aang’s room just after sunrise.
    The hairband in Katara’s hand snaps. “What,” she says, low and dangerous. Sokka involuntarily shrinks behind the kitchen counter.
    “I couldn’t—he said the secret code, Katara,” he says, hitting her with the puppy-dog eyes. “And he’s been torn to shreds, whatever he came here for must have been important.” Her scowl deepens. “I chained him up?” He offers uncertainly. ]
    Juggling a part-time job and an organized resistance against a vampire clan hell-bent on taking over the world is hard. Finding a half-dead Sozin clan defector in the alley makes it both harder and easier. At least he's hot.

    Summary

    [In another life, Zuko finds a poster for a missing bison outside Pao’s teashop, dresses himself in black, and resumes his mission with the kind of single-minded focus he hadn’t been able to muster for months.
    In this life, Zuko finds a poster for a missing bison, stares at it for a bit with his insides roiling around his heart like a ship caught in a storm, and crumples it up in one hand before tossing it into the trash and going back inside.]

    Sometime during late spring in the city of Ba Sing Se, Zuko serves tea (badly), falls in love (maybe), and deals with a chronic illness of the soul.

    AU continuation of "Let the City Pull You Under".

    Summary

    [He’ll wonder all that, later; but in this moment he kisses a boy who thinks he’s something other than he is, and clings to the bolt of revelation that strikes him in the dark: maybe nothing in life matters except grabbing onto whatever brief moments you have to feel good.]

    Before joining the Avatar, before choosing his path on the crossroads of destiny, and before he finds a poster for a missing bison, Crown Prince Zuko of the Fire Nation has a teenage affair in Ba Sing Se.

    Featuring wheat crime boy Jet and horrifically understanding parent man Uncle Iroh.
