    Summary

    Sokka receives an offer of an arranged marriage from the Northern Water Tribe. On the one hand, accepting would strengthen ties between their tribes. On the other hand, Chief Arnook has suggested Hahn as a potential match, and Hahn sucks. But with the future of the Southern Water Tribe Reconstruction project relying heavily on the good will of the North, Sokka doesn’t know how to say no.

    (Katara doesn’t have to deal with this. Katara is dating the Avatar.)

    Zuko has a solution. Sokka just wishes he’d realized he was in love with the Fire Lord before he agreed to pretend to date him.

    Summary

    “Uh,” he clears his throat. “I’m, um, Sokka?”

    “Sokka,” the man says, slowly. His voice is raspy, and Sokka feels butterflies fluttering in his stomach. “And who’s dad are you, Sokka?”

    “Dad?” Sokka asks dumbly, before his brain processes where he actually is right now. “Dad! Right. I’m Snoozles’ dad.”

    Summary

    Sokka is the highest paid pro-bender in the league. He's also the league's only nonbending player, a fact that sells tickets as much as it makes the purists of the sport angry.

    Zuko was the second-best rated firebender in the major league, before his abrupt and mysterious retirement.

    It's (mostly) luck when they run into each other on the street.

    Summary

    The Southern Water Tribe was no place for a firebender...or even a Fire Prince for that matter. And yet here Zuko was, not only in the South Pole’s capital itself but in the Royal Palace, protecting the tribe’s Chief after a failed assassination attempt.
    Chief Sokka, his old friend and a man who was intelligent and witty, yet kind of a dumbass. A man who was brave and strong and kind. A man who Zuko was utterly failing not to develop...personal feelings for.

    Summary

    "The thing is, we live dangerous lives," Sokka says. "You’re alive right now, and thank every goddamn spirit in existence for that. But we don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. We just don’t. It could be you. Or it could be me. And then all of this would just be over. And Zuko, I don’t think I could live with myself, here or in the afterlife, if that happened and you didn’t know how I feel about you.”

     

    Sokka invites Zuko to his tent to talk. Inspired by this fanart by ponury-grajek on tumblr.
