    Summary

    The world is divided. Normals and Benders hate each other, and Benders are forced to occupy only their own territories lest they unbalance the new world order. Ozai, King of the Fire Nation, has plans to use this division to overthrow the Normal government and to restore freedom for the Four Nations. But his ambitions come with a hefty price- the loyalty of his son and heir, Zuko.

    *

    Sixteen-year-old Zuko leaves the palace immediately after getting burned, and goes on the run, injured and alone. But by a twist of fate he is the key to Ozai's plan, and the man who styles himself Fire Lord is not going to take his disappearance lightly.
    Can Zuko escape his father, and more importantly, can he find a new purpose before he loses sight of himself? It's a little hard when you're lost in a world full of strangers with no place to call home...

    Or: LONG HAUL Modern with Bending AU, in which an older Zuko ditches Ozai early, goes feral, gets adopted by everyone he meets, becomes an enigma and raises plenty of hell to order while he's at it.

    Part One (Chapter 1 to 10: Zuko Alone) Complete! | Updates monthly-ish!

    Summary

    Mai's world burns around her as she watches the Agni Kai. No one is doing anything. Not Azula, who is watching on with a smile. Not the Fire Lord, who has a satisfied look on his face. Not Prince Iroh, who isn't even there.

    Mai's world is burning, and she knows she is the only one who can douse the flames.

    Or: What happens if Iroh isn't present for the Agni Kai? What happens when someone else steps up to take his place?

    Featuring: baby BAMFs, Mai and Zuko being chaotic goth BFFs, the Yuyan adopting not one but two (2) feral children, and June making excuses to visit the Pohuai Stronghold in order to check in on her apprentices (*cough, cough* little siblings *cough, cough*)

    Officially updating every other Monday!

    Summary

    What if Zuko ran away from the Wani when he was thirteen? Before he had healed from Ozai burning him and long before he ever learnt about his quest to capture the Avatar. What if instead of spending three years searching he was taken in by June and became the Blue Spirit, one of the most notorius bounty hunters in the lands, wanted both by the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdom?

    Summary

    “You found the Avatar,” the man says. It’s not a question. 

    “Yes,” It reeks hollow on Zuko's tongue. 

    “Then you can find my daughter.” 

     

    [Zuko is very good at finding things. People take notice.]

    Summary

    Kuzon doesn’t like his present.

    June’s never giving anyone anything ever again.

    She pulls herself off that cliff to inspect his expression more carefully. He doesn’t dislike it, necessarily; he’s just staring at it like it’s terrifying beyond his comprehension.

    (Which is the reaction it should inspire in strangers, sure, but not in him.)

    Summary

    Chit Sang didn’t lie to June, when he said he’d angered the Fire Lord simply by misfiling a library scroll. But under the neat words, there’s more to the story. There always is.

    Summary

    [On June’s kitchen table, there’s a carefully dogeared stack of notebook paper. She’ll type it up and print it out at some point, maybe even get it notarized because it’ll piss off the shortstack. And, maybe, just a small part of her hopes that by taking these steps, he’ll realize that just because he’s manipulated his way in with all the grace and poise of a bull in a china shop, that doesn’t mean she’s not taking it seriously anyway.

    “Sit down, kid. You want this, for real? We’ve got to lay down some ground rules.”

    “…Like a contract?”

    “Yeah, sure. Like a contract.”]

    Or,

    Laying down a new foundation.

    Summary

    [Zuko knows, at his core, that this is not sustainable.

    They say—well, Uncle says—that the true indicator of wisdom is to know how much you don’t know. If that’s true, then Zuko might be stupid but at least he’s on his way to being the wisest person on the planet, because he learns every night that he manages to escape the house how much he doesn’t know. Some part of Zuko had kind of thought that June’s idea of training would be the kinds of things that are already in his wheelhouse: the stealth, the sneaking, the silent parkour. Lighting things on fire by hand, since he missed out on the kind of firepower that literally everyone else in the Huo family inherited.

    Not that it’s given Zuko a complex or anything.]

    Or,

    How things fall apart and how they come together.

    Summary

    “So,” June observes casually, “you just waltzed in tonight and declared yourself king.”

    Turns out Kuzon isn't a half-bad dictator.

    Summary

    [It’s two in the morning and someone is knocking on June’s door.

    She grumbles, just a little, dislodging Nyla from where the puppy is relentlessly kicking her in the side, and rolls out of bed. The knocking stops, briefly, and then continues. A brush past the nightstand slips a pistol into her waistband, and June tries desperately not to hear a teasing laugh and a smart remark about how she’s going to shoot off one of her buttcheeks one day.

    It doesn’t matter.

    She’ll never hear that voice again, anyway.]

    Or,

    How June gets her very own minion against her will.

    Summary

    [“Once upon a time, there was a little boy with a monster under his bed. That little boy’s home was filled with monsters, and so nobody noticed that this one followed him around his house. Does this story sound familiar to you?”]

    Or,

    The White Lotus and Bloodhound don’t agree on much, but there are always exceptions.

    Summary

    [Zuko meets a boy in a mask at two a.m. and falls off his roof.

    Which is ridiculous, because he hasn’t actually fallen off a roof in years, not without help of a more villainous kind. But no—this kid pops up out of fucking nowhere and Zuko, like a fucking idiot, jumps out of his skin like a scalded cat. Ledge in one hand, the other fumbling for the tonfa at his hip…like a fucking idiot.

    Thank god June is not here, or Zuko would never hear the end of it.]

    Or,

    The superhero AU that nobody asked for.

    Summary

    “So,” the nurse says with a murderous smile, “you obtained a recently traumatized twelve-year-old child.”

    “He really might be older than that,” mutters June.

    “Then you gave him a long lecture on how the world’s full of dangerous opponents who might commit violence against him at any time.”

    “That’s nothing he didn’t know already...”

    “And then, to initiate combat practice, you tossed a knife at his face.”

    “I said ‘catch!’”

    Okay, so maybe someone should’ve stopped June from adopting a kid.

    Summary

    Despite the fever and the barely-healed burn scar, the boy’s fast. June avoids his blade, but still he jams his limbs into her, desperate to scratch and kick and bite off her hand…

    (Just like a baby shirshu, spitting poison from behind the bars of its cage. The comparison shouldn't be so endearing.)

    Or: the AU where Zuko flees the palace after his Agni Kai, running right into Nyla and June.
