    Summary

    You are Zuko, and she is Katara, and these are your lives in retrospect. Here you do not belong to each other, because here there was a war, and you both have spent decades regretting the spoils of your victory.

    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

    After that fateful Agni Kai, Ozai makes a different call. Branded as a traitor and banished to a prison camp, Zuko learns how cruel the Fire Nation can be to its citizens. Three years, a water tribe raid, and an unexpected meeting with a gang of over-enthusiastic idealistic children puts Zuko back in the spotlight. The revolution is coming and it wants another poster boy, but Zuko is not willing to lend his face to the cause.

    Summary

    Mid-Season-One Zuko is held ransom by Chief Hakoda. Ozai's replies to the Water Tribe's demands are A+ Parenting. Hakoda is… deeply concerned, for this son that isn't his, and who might be safer among enemies than with his own father.

    Summary

    A collection of stories about Mike, Eleven, and their relationship through the years. Mostly one-shots, definitely not in sequential order. Since they're all written between seasons, some of the older ones might not be fully canon compliant. Also, consider them unconnected to each other unless specifically stated otherwise (although I guess, if you squint, you could assume they're in the same continuity... ish...).
