The Gaang must all navigate life in a prestigious public school in Boston while struggling with culture, sexuality, and their futures.

    Summary

    For Firelord Zuko and Ambassador Sokka, the war has ended and they spend their days now, four years after peace has flourished across the land, putting down cells of Ozai's sympathizers and forging their relationship behind closed doors. When the Gaang takes up a mission to squash the very last of Ozai's supporters, Zuko and Sokka are caught in a collapsing tunnel and buried alive. Seemingly escaping the kiss of death, they wake to a world that is not their own.

    At the behest of spirit dabbling, both Sokka and Zuko are thrown into an alternate reality that mirrors their own. Sixteen again, they face the massive jarring changes of what could have been their lives had the war gone differently. Aang never woke up from the iceberg. The Southern Waterbenders were never targeted and the Southern Tribe is a close twin to the North's elitist personality. Iroh never lost Lu Ten to the siege of Ba Sing Se and the strangest change of all, Ozai is a loving parent to his beloved son.

    Together, Sokka and Zuko need to find a way back to their own world and bodies, and figure out what the spirits intended for them in this strange dreamlike world.

    Summary

    Katara joins her father's diplomatic coalition to the Fire Nation five years after a successful defeat of Firelord Ozai by Avatar Aang. Zuko is set to receive his full coronation from Prince Regent to Fire Lord in a few weeks time, but before the celebration can start, word is sent out to every corner of the globe: the avatar has been grievously wounded. What began as an emergency intervention has turned into a debacle only resolvable by none other than the heroes of the hundred year's war. But will their friendship be enough to sever ancient cords of hatred, or will their newfound world peace crumble before it's begun?

    Are Love and friendship capable of overcoming everything, even death?

     

    Takes place after the chronological events of the ATLA animated TV show & after events of the five-years immediately post-winning the war covered in "Letters Abroad". They can all be read as stand-alone works.

    Summary

    The end of the 100-year war is uncharted territory. The Fire Nation has been defeated but peace seems like a far-off dream complicated by the need for reparations, rebuilding, and four nations divided by lack of trust. Ozai has fallen but his beating heart has infuriated leaders across the other nations. Trials for war crimes are common ground and, many agree, a reasonable place to start.

    ; or the gang tries to find peace and heal in a postwar world.

    Summary

    Chief Hakoda of the Southern Water Tribe,

    It is my greatest honor to offer you marriage to a Fire Nation noble in exchange for peace between our lands and the land of your sister tribe to the North. We would offer the same alliance by marriage to the Northern Tribe but it is my understanding that their chief is mated and their only daughter was disposed of.

    With the Avatar gone, our liberation of the Earth Kingdom is nigh. Soon the land will be as glorious and developed as the Fire Nation. We are happy to share our wealth with the world, though underdeveloped villages, such as those of the Water Tribes, are not on our radar. Rather than liberation through conquest, we offer you riches and trade in this alliance as well as a promise to no longer attack your villages and in exchange you do not interfere with our conquests.

    We have already sent several Fire Navy ships towards the Southern Water Tribe. One carries your betrothed and their guards and servants. The other three carry Fire Nation troops. This is just to keep things honest, I assure you, no attack will happen as long as you are there to accept your bride.

    I await your response,

    Firelord Ozai

    Summary

     
    Hakoda had his hands full with his warrior son, waterbending daughter, and his half-faced ward. But no one said parenting was easy. All you can do is hope they grow up happy and safe. Hope is rare in a time of war. But as he watched his children grow, so did his smile.

    Summary

    Follows Zuko's journey as he tries to integrate into the gaang starting with the Western Air Temple. Stayed very loyal to the show timeline with some obvious embellishments. This is a precursor to my later series with lots of relationship details that may be helpful for my later series when Zukka is full force!

    Summary

    Hakoda looks over at the fire nation military plans scattered across his table, turning to watch the prince of said nation sitting calmly in the chair across from him. He asks the only other question that he needs to know.

    "Why?"

    Zuko takes in a soft breath as he contemplates his words. In truth, he's been contemplating how to answer this question ever since he decided to turn his back on the only home he's ever known.

    "Because my father is-.. a bad person. But I... am not."

    It's taken Zuko a long time to be able to say those words and actually believe them.
    ---------

    Zuko gets a chance to do things right. He does not intend to waste that chance this time.

    Summary

He has little to no time to adjust to this information before the ship is attacked by pirates. Young Zuko is taken hostage. What will happen to him? Will anybody save home?

    Or: my take on the; 'Zuko gets adopted by Hakoda and his crew' stories.

    Summary

    The man’s voice once again broke him from his thoughts; “In my dreams I see them tortured by Fire Nation soldiers. I see my entire culture wiped from the South, our footprint upon the ice shelves gone as though we never existed, our connection with the spirits and our ancestors forgotten.” He was silent for the briefest of moments, then, “You’re Fire Nation, aren’t you?”

    Zuko rolled onto his side, facing the wall, scar pressed into the arm that cushioned his head. “Once, maybe.”

    “Answer me this, then; when will this war see it's end?”

    Zuko, recalling the fire that had burned in Azula’s sunlit gaze the day she’d caught up to him, chose not to respond.

    Summary

    “Hello there!” The kid’s head shot up, their body freezing. Big eyes staring back at him. Well, one eye actually. The other one was still pulled fairly closed, the side of their face covered in a heck of a burn scar. How does a kid get a scar like that?

    “Do you live close to here? If you don’t, it looks like rain, I don’t mind giving you a ride if-“ The kid had already run off. In the opposite direction. And into the woods.

    Because a strange man in a minivan had pulled up and asked where they live and offered to give them a ride, stellar work there Hakoda.

    At least the kid had some survival instincts.

    Summary

    Sokka finds dealing with the aftermath of what happened to him in that rural Earth Kingdom town is harder than he anticipated. The wounds may have healed, but deeper scars remain. The memories of a rope around his neck and the cold hateful words of Earth Kingdom soldiers follow him no matter how fast or how far he runs. Not even the high walls of Ba Sing Se could keep these nightmares at bay. After the Gaang reveals the grand conspiracy within the city, Sokka sets off with Aang in nervous anticipation of reuniting with his dad and the rest of the tribe, only to find even the taste of home and familiar arms cannot stop the horrors of that town from hunting him down and dealing another painful blow to his fragile resolve.

    There is no peace for Sokka as he fears for how his father will react to finding out his son is no longer the man he thought he was.

    -----
    [Part Three to my Zukka fic 'No Noose Is Good Noose' where Sokka is wrongly accused of a crime in the Earth Kingdom and almost hung for it, only to be rescued from the gallows by Zuko in the aftermath of Zuko Alone.]
