    Summary

    Set in a non-bending AU, Azula and Katara are emerging Pai Sho prodigies, destined to eventually battle for the title of world champion. Covering an entire decade of their lives, this is a story about how their initial rivalry grows into mutual respect and friendship, before blossoming into something much more than that. Heavily inspired by the Netflix show The Queen’s Gambit. Most of our favorite ATLA characters are Pai Sho players. Azutara is endgame, duh.

    Summary

    The comet didn't come during Sozin’s lifetime.

    The world was at war for a decade when the Fire Nation unexpectedly agreed to a peace treaty. The only thing solidifying the treaty is the Avatar’s hand in marriage to the Crown Prince of the Fire Nation.

    But when Prince Zuko finds out this is his father’s deceptive ploy to stall for the comet he makes a difficult choice. Zuko sacrifices everything to save the man he has no business falling in love with… But will Aang have the strength to sacrifice Zuko for his duty?

    [almost complete…!]

    Summary

    Dear Zuzu, 

    A small child has arrived on my doorstep. She calls herself Kiyi and says that she was looking for adventure. I feel like she should be returned and stop bothering me.

    I’ll meet you on the north point of Kirifuri woods tomorrow at midnight and then you can take her back. She asks a lot of questions.

    Your sister,

    Azula

    or where both Azula and Ozai are a little less forgiving (of each other).

    Summary

    After nearly being driven to destruction - again - by enemies both external and internal, Azula is left wondering what her next steps should be.

    Is there any way to end the constant war - both against threats to the station that she now calls home, and against her own safety and sanity? Can she find redemption, whatever that means? And will she, in the end, be able to save her new life?

    It's just another day on Space Station 13.

    (No knowledge of Space Station 13 is necessary to read this story, though it makes it easier to understand some parts. Reading "Absconditus" first is highly advised.)

    Summary

    "Azula please! Don't go! I can help you! I want to help you! "

    If she didn't know better she might actually think he was telling the truth. 

    She stops, turns around, thinks that was probably a bad idea. (he doesn't want to help her, she knows, of course she knows) 

    (doesn't she?) 

    "Same as always Zuzu. Even when you're strong, you're weak. "

    It comes out as more of a sob than an insult — but she thinks it hurts all the same. She sees his face fall, and the hurt shining through his golden eyes. She would have smiled, but the movement could cause the tears — those obstinate tears — to spill, and she can't risk crying, not now, not in front of Zuko. 

    She turns around and disappears into the forest, covering her mouth with her hand. 

    He runs after her.

     

    Zuko chases Azula after she runs away because why not.

    Summary

    This story takes place after the comics from "The search" and diverges from the story of the comics from there and on (the first chapter gives a summary of the relevant bits of the comics).

    After Zuko's mother, Ursa, returns to the palace alongside her newest daughter, Kiyi, and her new husband, Ikem, Azula sneaks inside and kidnaps her half-sister Kiyi, in an attempt to hurt her mother by taking away the 'daughter that she did love'.

    After learning that Kiyi still has not fully understood that her mother had a face change, and thinks of her as a stranger, Azula decides to use Kiyi, by turning her into a monster that not even her own mother can love, just as she is.

    However, as Azula interacts with the girl that actually had loving parents while growing up, she starts to notice the cracks in her own mind, left by the lack of affection from her childhood, and her strict upbringing.

    Meanwhile, Zuko and Ursa must find Kiyi before Azula harms her. However, Ursa has the intention to bring both her daughters back with her.

    Summary

    "Are you alright?" A soft voice asked.

    Azula turned her head (ignoring the way her neck groaned in protest) and found herself face-to-face with a girl. Beautiful dark braids. Eyes - the grey colour of the sea. Azula could recognize her face anywhere, even with a different hair colour.

    Yue.

    The lost princess.

    Oh Saints, she thought.

    OR: Azula is banished from the Fire Nation and given the task of finding the missing princess Yue.
    AU where the Fire Nation don't find out the Avatar is alive until the Day of Black Sun.

    Summary

    Azula has escaped her prison but not her demons. Desperate and on the run she meets a man whose unique personality, past and attitude to life will change her forever. Will she find the love and acceptance she craves? It features Buddhist, Taoist and Confucian ideas and philosophies adapted to the Avatarverse, Romance, Meditation and an unusual Redemption. Azula's story is told in retrospective, decades after it happened, and is contained within the story of a young girl plagued by insecurities and fears who comes to her for guidance and aid. This story aims to give perspective to several questions, how to live with hurt and pain, how to become a better person while still being oneself and how to live on knowing that your actions will never be forgiven. Many popular tropes of this sub-genre of Avatar fanfiction are downplayed or missing, most of Azula's interactions are with OCs, her time in confinement isn't explored in detail and her feelings and relationship to Ozai are much more important, in fact they are a catalyst of her journey. Nevertheless, I hope you, dear reader will find something worthwhile.
