    Summary

    Princess Azula believes that she was born to rule, and bringing glory to her nation through conquest is her only purpose. She rules through fear alone. Her own people fear her. Even her closest friends fear her. She has never truly experienced companionship that was not founded in fear. That is until, one day a young peasant girl enters her life when she approaches her to give her a fire lily.

    Through this flower, Azula brings Elle back to the palace to serve as her handmaid. From there on an unlikely bond blossoms between two girls from separate worlds.

    Azula soon finds herself undertaking a life-changing journey with her new servant to win the throne, and maybe even inadvertently save humanity while she is at it. Over the course of her odyssey she begins to discover her humanity, and she comes to experience what it feels like to be loved by another. And in turn Elle learns the meaning of courage, and most importantly she has finally found a home.

    Neither of their lives will ever be the same again.

    Summary

    "Toklo wants to see lightning. When’s the last time Azula bent just for the sake of it? Without reprimand, without being corrected, without already awaiting the next step?

    Azula moves away from them, back to the deck. No one follows her.

    The sky is still grey, the waves still strong but the ozone isn’t as strong in the air anymore. No matter; she can change that. She can be the ozone itself."

    Summary

    While in the Foggy Swamp, Aang also has a vision about his firebending teacher. Weeks later, he and his friends end up in a strange Earth Kingdom town that holds tightly onto its secrets.
    “It sounds like you’re describing Zuko,” the blacksmith says, and fire dances from his fingertips. “The Spirits really do have an ironic sense of humor.”
    It’s not until they know who Zuko’s father is, that they realize what the blacksmith meant.
    Zuko knows that he cannot run from destiny; but he really wishes that it didn’t involve him returning to the Fire Nation.

    Summary

    Across the path, Azula stared in confusion. She’d long since harbored a crush on the beautiful woman who lived there. So sue her if she’d unintentionally picked up on the woman’s schedule. It was well past the time she was usually in bed, so why was she climbing out her window and hiding on her balcony?

    Summary

    What if the Avatar was found a few years later than in the original timeline? Sokka has become a brooding, vengeful warrior at the South Pole, waging a one man crusade against the Fire Nation. One day, he picks a target that will change his life, and give him the opportunity to change the whole world. Sokkla, Kataang, maybe other ships later. Cross-post of my in-progress longfic over on FFN. Same author username.

    Warning: Mentions of genocide, a more brutal take on the violence of the A:TLA world.

    Summary

    Azula is forced to flee the palace after multiple attempts at her life, which she thinks is caused by a secret conspiracy against her. With this she goes to the only people she trusts (trusts are too useless to be involved, that is): her brother and uncle, who have been looking for the Avatar for years.

    Little does any of them know, Azula is the Avatar, and the only conspiracy is that of her father, who got word of her airbending without her knowledge.

    With the help of their uncle, the twelve year old ghost of an airbending Avatar, a Waterbender they totally didn't kidnap, her brother, a surprisingly violent lemur, and others, can a conflicted Azula and Zuko realize the injustices of their father and stop him before it's too late?

    Summary

    “Go on then,” stupid Zuko challenged, even as his voice cracked, because he was an idiot Fire Lord who didn’t know when to shut up, and Sokka liked that undying fiery streak but also wanted to kill him a million times when they get out of this-

    But all thoughts of throttling Zuko himself came to a halt because because Tezuka was smiling with perverse affection, then he was gripping Zuko’s face with one hand---

    --lifting a burning palm in the other, and then--

    --Zuko was shrieking, his voice high and terrified and so damn young --

    --Sokka shouted, shouted because he was so useless --

    Or,

    Sokka and Azula bond over their mutual desire to keep Fire Lord Zuko alive. Post-canon.

    Summary

    Being the son of the man waging war on the entire world is not as fun as one may think it would be (not that anyone would think that it would be fun in the first place).

    Not a day goes by that Zuko doesn't feel like he's drowning. Not a day goes by that he doesn't try his damn best to tune them out. Still, the drawstrings of a hoodie can only be drawn so tight.

    "There's the Ryu boy," he hears them whisper. "They say he looks just like his father."

    If the chance ever arises, Zuko plans on giving his father a solid uppercut to the jaw. It won't repay for ruining Zuko's life, but maybe it'll be a start.

    (Oh, who's he kidding? Someone's probably going to stab him in an alley before he ever even gets the chance to talk to his dad again. Agni, wouldn't it be nice to have someone in this gods-forsaken city who didn't see him and just think of the man halfway across the world getting more people killed than anyone could count.)
