    Summary

    [It’s born in a cage, in a lab that’s all stark white and generic blandness.

    It’s alone, no mother or siblings present, just a face swimming in front of its shaky, infant vision. The face is considering and then ecstatic, and it feels a jerk of happiness, the first feeling it ever has.

    It’s hungry but also tired, and wants to know about the world.]

    Or,

    The origin story of Zuko’s fire-breathing Pikachu.

    Summary

    [[How much damn ice u want] he texts at the gas station, definitely not holding the entire front half of his body in the freezer while he waits for a response. Could he get banned from a Circle K for getting in the freezer and shutting the door?

    Would they call his dad over that?

    Sokka doesn’t get the chance to consider it further because Zuko’s texted him back.

    [All of it.]

    Sokka stares down at his phone.

    “Dude, you had better be fucking kidding me.”]

    Or,

    Three idiots and a kiddie pool.

    Summary

    [“Draw a portrait, Sparky,” she says, “It’ll last longer.”

    Zuko does not draw a portrait. Zuko gets up and disappears to wherever he’s been sleeping (alone and far away, like he’s hiding, even though sound carries too well in this temple for him to keep his screaming nightmares to himself), and Toph thinks for a moment that she’s run him off. She hasn’t run him off.

    Zuko returns in a matter of minutes, holding what’s clearly a book in his hands.

    “Hasn’t…” he begins, anxious without fail every time he brings attention to himself, “Hasn’t anyone ever read to you?”]

    Or,

    Toph thinks books are stupid. Zuko disagrees.

    Summary

    [Zuko is rocking.

    That’s the first sensation he feels upon awakening. It’s a familiar feeling, as is the texture of the knit blanket he’s curled up in, as is the quiet but constant hum of machinery, deep in the belly of the Jasmine Dragon.

    ...wait.

    Zuko bolts upright and flails, once, and falls out of bed with a hard clatter. It’s his bed that he’s been sleeping in for years, and definitely not the cell that he’s been rotting in for the last...he doesn’t know how long. He doesn’t know how he got here. He doesn’t remember.]

    Or,

    Zuko is not okay. But he can get better.

    Summary

    [Aang’s the one who brings it to him. It’s tea, obviously, but it doesn’t smell like any tea that Zuko’s ever had. Spicy but also kind of...sour?

    Zuko stares down at his cup with a sort of vague concern. He doesn’t want to drink this.

    Aang’s staring up at him so earnestly, though, and Zuko’s never been able to say no to cute, googly eyes. It’s not right. He doesn’t want anything to do with Aang’s weird, spicy tea.]

    Or,

    In which Zuko isn’t poisoned, but in fact finds himself at the tender mercies of a truth serum. In retrospect, maybe being poisoned would have been more pleasant.
