    Summary

    Following the end of the war, the gaang splits up to continue their lives in times of peace. With everyone going their own ways and Toph the only one still at the Fire Nation place (as she didn't want to return home) becomes closer friends with Zuko during this time as she decides how to pass on the skill of metal bending. She refuses to leave him alone as she watches him sink into depression at the idea of being abandoned by everyone again. Considering they have one eye and two braincells that Zuko doesn't know how to use and Toph has never tired to use between them, their friendship causes mishaps as well as growth and support as they visit each other on various occasions usually resulting in Toph making a lot of enemies as she tries to drag the Fire Lord away from his duties. Then mix a solid amount of Zuko angst into that and here we go, this thing.
    Zuko and Toph just vibe in this and have no thoughts head empty, they have the very close sibling dynamic, not dating.

    In which Zuko has far too much trauma and receives love and affection from his odd group of friends and a therapist because lets be honest, he needs one.

    Summary

    He took a deep breath, exhaling his doubts. Small steps first. He was accepted— well, maybe not accepted, but he was allowed into the group. That was something, at least. Maybe if he gave it time, things would get better. He could work his way up from prisoner to... ally, maybe. Acquaintance. That sounded doable enough.

    Summary

    Its the end of the world. Or at least it feels like it. With the failure on the day of Black Sun, and the threat of Sozin's Comet looming over their heads, how could it feel like anything else? but what better time to fall in love than the end of the world? or how I started reading Zukka fics and couldn't get this song out of my head

    Summary

    Why can’t he remember anything? Anything to explain his current situation.

     

    ...

    Or, Sokka wakes up with no memory of the past four years, in bed with someone he seems to both love and hate. If you asked him, he would say he's handling it pretty well, all things considered.

    Summary

    Nobody's really sure how to take the new Fire Lord. Actually, nobody's really sure if he'll last long enough for them to get used to him. Zuko, existing in the uncertainty of a life after the war, is right there with everybody else.

    Summary

    Downstairs, he could hear the loud, cheerful voices of the Duke and Teo, of the Water Tribe siblings laughing together, of Toph yelling at Aang or Haru. If he went down now and stepped into their space, silence would follow him in. “You are the enemy!” Katara’s eyes would scream. “You live because I let you!”

    The thought didn’t hurt Zuko, exactly- he hardly knew them, after all- but it made him cautious. He had no doubt that if he toed out of line so much as an inch, if he pushed their hospitality just a little too far, he would be mincemeat. Zuko wondered just what counted as too far. He imagined Katara lunging for his throat if he let Aang get burnt, if he forgot one of his chores, if he looked at Sokka or Toph wrong. He imagined himself letting her because she deserved to get her revenge. He thought it would simply be a matter of time.

    Zuko didn’t push it.

    Summary

    Zuko patiently waited for the line in front of him to drift to the drink counter and out the door one by one, taking the time to look around the shop some more. When he finally reached the counter, he allowed himself to look at the cashier for the first time.

    And immediately froze.

    The cashier was just about the most gorgeous man he’d ever seen in his life.

    -

    Famous actor Zuko, who recently disappeared from the public eye, stumbles into a boba tea shop one afternoon. Several bad tea puns later, via the most stunning and dorky man he's ever met, he never wants to leave.

    Summary

    The room was lined with his father’s advisors, ministers, generals-all clambering to get in the good graces of their new Fire Lord.
    These people had never worked a hard day in their life. None of the hands he shook felt calloused to the handles of tools, roughened by hours laboring in kitchens or factories or fields. None of these fools knew the desperation of living in the lower ring of Ba Sing Se or how it felt to go without food for days on the road.
    Gods, how could he let these shams, these clowns determine the fate of normal folks when they knew nothing but cushioned lives? Zuko had been mulling the thought over too long, but it finally crystallized, sharp and sure in his mind. Sokka had said it, one night when they lay on Ember island’s black sands, his eyes bright with possibility and fixed on the future.

    He was going to let his people run his Nation.

    (It turns out Zuko is gay for Socialism AND Sokka)
