    Summary

    “your dad,” sokka starts, then swallows hard. “your dad dueled you, burned half of your face off, and then banished you because you spoke when you shouldn’t have?”

    guilt festers and bubbles like black tar in zuko’s chest. “i didn’t just speak. i questioned and insulted one of his highest-ranking generals—but the man was planning a massacre! he shouldn’t have—” zuko clamps his mouth shut, his teeth clicking together, and swallows thickly. “i mean. i found the tactic he proposed very startling, but it wasn’t my place to question such things. i’m sure he had his reasons.”

    “tui and la what the absolute fuck,” sokka whispers.

    [zuko gets imprisoned with sokka and katara during the winter solstice, and some very unfortunate things come to light. alternatively: the gaang kidnaps adopts zuko in book one after discovering just how awful his father is.]

    Summary

    The only time his soulmark is on full display is when it is Bren’s turn to sit crying Ikithon’s lab. In some twisted, cruel mercy, Ikithon leaves Essek’s name alone. The scars leave a horrible twisted border around the soulmark, thorned like brambles, an ugly reminder on Bren’s arm: You have the potential to be a traitor written on your skin, and you must spend every breath proving your loyalty to me.

    But despite it all, there is hope in him. A hope small and cruel, a twisting knife as it mixes with shame and fear and disgust, but hope nonetheless, glowing like that little mote of light from his dream. Hope growing like a curling vine, clinging to his heart like it already knows the way. Like he has done this before.

     

    Or: the canon-adjacent shadowgast soulmates au.
