    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.

    Summary

    He sets the tea down gently and-

    Thud

    Zuko nearly jumps out of his skin. There’s no way that was his teacup. It sounded close. His eyes dart around the room and he hears a single quiet knock at the door. Zuko silently speeds his way to the door and grabs one of his dao swords off the wall mount. He slowly peeks out of the peephole and sees nothing. If this is some ding dong ditch situation, he’s going to be pissed.
    He grabs the doorknob tentatively, adjusting his grip on the sword in his other hand. He knows he’s probably overreacting but it’s 3 am on a Tuesday. Not exactly the best time for unannounced visits.

    He turns the doorknob slowly and is immediately pushed back by the weight of the door against him like someone is pushing it open from the other side. Zuko instinctively jumps back and grips the sword with both hands. His eyes try to find the source.
    A large body falls halfway across the threshold of his doorway. Like the person was sitting on the ground with their back against the front door. The person fell back onto the ground when the door was opened.

    What.

    Summary

    Images flashed in front of him, just as the whispering ceased.

     

    A glowing boy in an iceberg, a crowd of people bowing to him, even more cheering, Azula chained to the gutter, his father's corpse being burned with four people in attendance, someone named Kiyi, a bearded man and a woman who looked like Mai naming their son Iroh, a new nation, him standing in front of Sozin's portrait while Azula jeered, him confronting his father, him hugging a tattooed boy, a pair of siblings fr-


    They say that the Firelord murdered his son in cold blood with a cold gaze. They say that it is a pity, for the boy was a failure. They know that they must say what is expected of them.

    What they do not know, or say is that the boy lives.

    Summary

    “Li, table five needs your attention.” Pao urged him from behind the counter.

    His heart climbed in his throat and thundered until his breath drew short. Panic crept like a tight band around his chest as bright blue eyes followed him the way a hawk tracks a meadow vole through the brush from its perch. It was a sensation Zuko rarely felt since he left the Fire Nation all those years ago. The feeling of being prey in someone else’s eyes. The feeling of being pinned to the spot, unable to force himself to move or breathe. He wanted to flee, to race out the back of the tea shop and rush back to the safety of their cramped tidy apartment and pretend the water tribesman had never even entered the shop, but it was too late. He was watching Zuko with expectancy.

    Suddenly the carefully crafted life he had built here in Ba Sing Se was teetering daintily on crystal foundations. All it would take is one strike to topple it all until only the shattered remnants remained for him to cut himself on.

    “I’m surprised to see you here.” The tribesman greeted warmly, his voice twisted up with an edge of amusement.

    Summary

    He turns back to Toph, who is looking completely nonplussed. “But no, Toph-” Her previous words filter through all at once and he suddenly has very different questions. “Wait, you were looking for me? Is everything okay?" 

    She sighs and takes a seat in the half removed empty chair beside him after checking its place with a kick and her hand on the back of it, laying her white stick across her lap, as she sits down heavily with a huff. "You'd know if you checked your fucking phone, dumbass. Sokka said he couldn't get hold of you but he couldn't escape class for another couple hours so he sent me to make sure you hadn't killed yourself with studying."

     

    Or Toph and Zuko bond over the stress of chasing what you want when their parents don't respect them or their choices.

    Summary

    Zuko wasn't the type of person who made out with random men in clubs. Then again, he also wasn't the type of person who allowed his friends to dress him up in a ridiculous costume and parade him around downtown either. 

    Three hours ago, he never would've believed he'd be making out with a good looking, albeit inaccurately dressed, pirate. 

    It seemed tonight was full of firsts.

    Summary

    “One more step and it’s off with his head, do you hear me?” Yun yells out. He places a sharp-formed rock poking into his neck. It cuts into his skin, causing Sokka to yelp in pain. He feels a warm liquid running down his neck, his own blood.

    Summary

    Katara aimed her own set of polar bear-puppy eyes in Sokka’s direction, with a distinctly panicked slant to her mouth. He gulped, then took a deep breath and squared his shoulders. “Look, uh, Aang, and Zuko- there- there aren’t any southern waterbenders anymore. And. There haven’t been any airbenders either, not in a hundred years, when Sozin’s Comet kinda kickstarted the war.”

    The baby dragon made an unhappy squeak as its owner staggered backwards to drop onto his butt in the snow.

    Summary

    Actually, Katara knew what she was afraid of, she just wasn’t sure which fear took priority on her list.

    “Katara…” Zuko repeated, removing his hand from her face. “I’m here, I’m listening.”

    Finally Katara opened her eyes, feeling the way her heart pounded in her chest. Without warning, tears form in her eyes, one escaping and trailing down her cheek.

    OR: Everything seems to be going well, but Katara has some news that might make or break whatever she and Zuko are doing.
