    Summary

    The war has ended and Ozai's reign of terror has finally ceased, but tensions run high in the Fire Nation Royal Family. Zuko and Azula have finally returned from their life-changing field trip, but now they have to deal with the aftermath of their trauma and facing long-gone relatives, all while enemies from all sides of the world call for their heads.

    Zuko is now Fire Lord, received with mixed reactions, and now has to deal with the repercussions of ending the war while faced with nightmares and hallucinations from his imprisonment and childhood, conflicted about his beloved Uncle. Things go from bad to worse when a new coup, the New Ozai Society, threatens the peace and his life.

    Meanwhile, Azula has to deal with the realization that she isn't perfect, and that love is not a weakness. She avoids her mother at every turn, while she rebuilds her friendships with Mai and Ty Lee and builds trust with her older brother. Her cousin Lu Ten is alive, and she avoids him too, afraid that he had abandoned like everyone else. Things go from bad to worse when she meets Kiyi, her half-sister, her replacement.

    Will the Fire Hazards find peace, or will they crash and burn from all the pressure?

    Summary

    The flames around the throne flared up with Azulon’s fury. “You dare suggest I betray Iroh? My firstborn? Directly after the demise of his only beloved son? I think Iroh has suffered enough! But you… your punishment has scarcely begun!

    “If you think you can do easily stand in his place, then you must know the pain of losing a firstborn son. By sacrificing your own!”

    The Prince stood, his anger barely contained. “If that is your judgment, then so be it. It will cause me no pain to rid the earth of the boy. He means nothing to me. Nothing!”

    “Your daughter, then.”

    Azula was born lucky, but it wasn’t enough to save her. Betrayed by the one person she believed loved her, she does the only thing she can think to do. She runs.

    Summary

    After his Agni Kai, Zuko flees the Fire Nation without Iroh or his crew. He finds himself stranded, alone, and injured in the Earth Kingdom when taken in and raised as a healer and farmer by an Earth Kingdom couple. He finds new ways to use his bending and to influence in the changing of the war with new understanding of himself, his bending, and the war. As someone with new perspectives and influence he is able to provide a greater understanding of being a teacher, warrior, and friend when meeting the gaang.
     Where Zuko gets to recover before using anger to protect himself

    Zuko is still in disbelief over what had happened. Sometimes not sure if he had imagined the whole thing. The pain on the left side of his face shooting through his head and down his neck is what brings him to his senses every time. Pain that is so intense that it blurs the vision in his good eye. Sometimes he can’t believe it even as the bandage completely obscures the vision of his left eye. The bandage that his hands still shake horribly from with pain as he removes it at night to clean the wound. All that time, trying to hold back tears that want to fall so badly from the pain, utter betrayal, and humiliation he feels so deep in his soul.

    Jet hates tea. A lot.

    That doesn't necessarily mean it's weird he spends so much time at the Pao Family Tea House, though. Everyone else just needs to mind their business.

    Summary

    What if Katara's healing was able to completely reverse the Dai Li brainwashing? What if Jet never got hurt under Lake Laogai, his friends never caught up with them, and he was with Aang while trying to save Katara from the depths of the crystal catacombs?

    What if Jet ran his mouth and unintentionally provoked Zuko into fighting against his sister instead of siding with her?

    Equally, what if Jet and Zuko joined the gaang early and traveled across the Fire Nation to take part in the Day of the Black Sun invasion?

    Summary

    A post-canon Azula redemption, where Azula unintentionally and begrudgingly starts an animal sanctuary but still doesn’t understand how a couple of turtleducks somehow ends up turning into a full-blown home for war orphans.

    However, it becomes well-known that anyone who messes with her charges (human or otherwise) will be burnt to a crisp.

    The Gaang are delighted and amused by this turn of events.

    Summary

    Zuko and Azula are the best of friends. They're siblings, after all. They'll stick together and protect each other, no matter what.

    After Zuko's banishment, he is assigned to a small squadron in the Earth Kingdom rather than being sent to hunt down the Avatar. Things rapidly go wrong from here. as things tend to do. Zuko gets thrown into a myriad of situations, and through it all, will he still retain that loyalty he once felt toward his nation? Or will he start to see nothing but enemies, as so many people in the other nations do?

    Basically I found a lot of plot ideas I liked so I put them in the Plot Washing Machine (TM), threw Zuko in there too, and put it on spin. The Southern Water Tribe Warriors show up, the Freedom Fighters show up, June and Nyla show up, royalty from multiple nations show up, the Gaang shows up, Toph Beifong herself shows up. There is... a lot of "showing up".

    Summary

    Katara and Toph go to the tea shop and discover Zuko is waiting tables way earlier than in the show. Slower exploration of Zuko's life as a tea server. Also the Dai Li are terrible customers. The Gaang ends up coming to Zuko's aid, but that might make things worse.

    Eventual and slight Zutara feels because I ship it like I'm a playwright for the Ember Island Players. But I also suck at anything remotely romantic so ... you have to squint to see it. And I try to be fair to all canon ships.

    Summary

    Azulon’s father raised him to live decisively, deliberately, and dauntlessly. A good leader made choices, a great leader made decisions and went from there. Great leaders did not look back at their past decisions and question what could’ve have been, they focused on what will be. Strength resided in dealing with the problems at hand, not stewing over the problems with which you already dealt, even if you no longer believed you made the best decision.

    On Azulon’s coronation day as the Crown Prince of the Fire Nation, two weeks after his eighteenth birthday, his father stood by his side above their people, where no one else could hear him:

    “It is impossible to live without regrets,” he said as he looked out on the large crowd gathered for the ceremony, “but you must only have regrets with which you can live.”

    Summary

    “Hello, Zuko. It’s been a long time.”

    Then the Master’s arms were reaching out and wrapping him in a hug, so similar yet different from his Uncle’s.

    And Zuko broke, because he was still a kid with the burden of his family’s legacy on his shoulders, faced with the kindest and closest adult to him, apart from his mother and Uncle.

    Zuko and his former sword fighting Master, Piandao, reunite before Sozin’s Comet.

    Summary

    Firelord Azulon had been furious at his second son. What right did Ozai have to demand the throne when his own brother had just suffered a loss? He delivered Ozai's punishment, but eavesdropping Azula hadn't liked what she had heard and twisted the truth. What if her lies had never taken root and the true punishment had been carried out as planned?

    Transferred from FFnet. Events mentioned in the comic "The Search" do not occur in this story's universe.

    Summary

    Okay, so maybe Sokka’s noticed that Zuko’s left eye doesn’t really move that much.

    That’s fine. It’s fine, because it’s damaged, and probably injured terribly by some incredibly unlucky accident, and it doesn’t even have an eyelid, so like — Sokka can work with this. Maybe it just doesn’t have any functioning nerves anymore. Sometimes, eyes just don’t move; it’s all perfectly normal, a regular day, just like Zuko strolling into the Western Air Temple to volunteer himself as Aang’s firebending teacher/prisoner/Not A Friend.

    Walking in on said firebending teacher/prisoner/Not A Friend polishing an entire entirely-detached eyeball? Not so fine.

     

    or: zuko has a glass eye. toph is fully ready to exploit the fact.

    Summary

    Zuko knew from the moment Azula entered his bedroom that he was in trouble. She knew that the Avatar was alive, and that it was only a matter of time before father found out. He had very little options ahead of him but one thing was clear.

    He wasn’t going to have it easy either way.
