    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

    The Cambridge Dictionary defines ‘go by the board’: to be forgotten or not used.

    Nautically: The board is the sides or the decking of a ship. ‘By the board’ means an object going over the ship's side.
    Unwanted Items which ‘go by the board’ could also be labeled jetsam, but for this fic it’s the Prince Zuko treatment.

    Because it just so happens that Ozai wants his firstborn to go by the board.

    Summary

    They say that in the beginning, Dragons taught the first fire benders how to live a life of flames and burning purpose. They say Agni chose the first Fire Lord because he was a boy with unending passion who became a man with great loyalty. Who better to lead his children than one who loved them absolutely? But times have changed. The Fire Lords stopped listening to him ages ago, and now - Now his real chosen has been spurned, cast out, abandoned.
    The Fire Nation will pay for ignoring him. The Fire Nation will answer for the imbalance it has allowed. The Fire Nation will not ignore him this time -he'll make sure of it.

    Summary

    Father keeps on telling Zuko that he's acting without honor, but a lot of the time he won't explain what exactly Zuko is doing wrong, and what he should do to be more honorable. So, Zuko decides to do some research and ask around about how he should behave honorably.

    Or: the servants of the Fire Lord's palace develop a soft spot for Zuko, Zuko confuses everyone around him with his particular brand of shout-y, aggressive politeness, and somehow Zuko accidentally ends up leading a revolution.

    Summary

    On the day before Ba Sing Se falls, Katara decides two things: 1) not to stop for a cup of tea; 2) consequently, the fate of the world.

    Behind the walls, Zuko loses sleep, runs errands, contemplates treason, and drinks a lot of hot leaf juice—not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    The first time a attendant spills Zuko’s tea and doesn’t immediately fall to her knees, begging the Fire Lord’s forgiveness, it is not anger but a resounding warmth that fills his chest.

    Summary

    [There’s a child underneath Fire Lord Zuko’s desk.

    He doesn’t realize this until he sits down and tiny hands wrap themselves around his ankles, and Fire Lord Zuko definitely does not shriek and backpedal away at the unexpected touch.

    He definitely does do that but Gou, the single guard he’s agreed to let shadow him, is kind enough not to mention it.]

    Or,

    In which Fire Lord Zuko is a total mess and somehow people manage to love him for it anyway.

    Summary

    [Zuko doesn’t tell Uncle goodbye.

    He doesn’t think that he would try and stop him, but Zuko thinks that if he has to talk about it, he’ll manage to talk himself out of it. Better to go now before he can change his mind.

    Zuko packs light: a change of clothes, some nonperishables, and a few knives go into a wax-lined satchel. He’s about to leave the room when he stops to eye the swords mounted on his wall, and, well.

    It’s not like he can go around firebending all over the place, he reasons, and straps them to his back.]

    Or,

    Zuko’s super fun, solo adventure in the Earth Kingdom.

    Summary

    [“Are you dead?” Are the first words that come out of Zuko’s mouth. Lu Ten winces. He’s barely adjusted to the idea himself, but he still wasn’t expecting Zuko to reach that conclusion so fast. He can’t lie to him.

    He nods.

    “I am.”

    “But you’re real.”

    “Yeah. Real dead.”

    He tries for a joke but Zuko bursts into tears instead.]

    Or,

    Lu Ten makes a promise, Lu Ten dies. Lu Ten comes back.

    Summary

    “I seriously have no idea how Zuko has gotten this good at making tea,” Sokka says, taking a sip of his. He doesn’t even particularly like tea, but Zuko’s is great. Definitely an improvement from the Western Air Temple. They’re in Iroh’s tea shop, because it was there and they had some time to kill.

    “Takes after his uncle, I guess,” Toph says, and Ty Lee laughs on the other side of the table. “What’s so funny?”

    “Well, you know,” Ty Lee says with another bright little laugh, waving them off.

    Summary

    For his first thirteen years, Zuko was raised in a palace. And yet somehow, it's the three years outside the Fire Nation that seem to count more – at least to the palace staff, who act like he's been raised by fox-wolves.

    At first, this only annoys Zuko.

    Until he begins to think that the Fire Nation needs more than a formerly-banished prince.

    Summary

    Summary

    Zuko is so freaking hungry, and the Pouhai Stronghold is the only sign of civilization he's seen in six months. Sneaking inside is hilariously simple, until it's not. At least he's not a pincushion (yet), but it'd be really nice if he could understand what the bow-toting security guards were saying.

    In which Zuko is adopted by a troop of silent ninja-archers.

    Inspired by MuffinLance's #Yuyan Raise Zuko.

    Summary

    Zuko finds them at the Western Air Temple, the first that they visit after his banishment. He doesn’t mean to, and he sure as hell doesn’t go looking for them, but he finds them anyway. He bolts out of the temple, past his uncle, past their camp, and runs until he reaches a forested meadow, where he drops to his knees and throws up everything he’d eaten that day.

    Or, alternately:

    Zuko discovers the truth about what happened to the Air Nomads, and also rediscovers an endangered species.
