    Summary

    They say that in the beginning, Dragons taught the first fire benders how to live a life of flames and burning purpose. They say Agni chose the first Fire Lord because he was a boy with unending passion who became a man with great loyalty. Who better to lead his children than one who loved them absolutely? But times have changed. The Fire Lords stopped listening to him ages ago, and now - Now his real chosen has been spurned, cast out, abandoned.
    The Fire Nation will pay for ignoring him. The Fire Nation will answer for the imbalance it has allowed. The Fire Nation will not ignore him this time -he'll make sure of it.

    (PLEASE NOTE/READ THIS: some of this is written at work, and some of it is written when I should be sleeping, so I likely update things half-finished, sorry. No, I'm not joking, I really am sorry, but doing this feeds my soul. Make sure you check my chapters for consistent updates! Current M.O. is that if I post a new chapter, the previous one is totally finished.)

    Summary

    Rough hands grasped Zuko's arms and hauled him to his feet, pulling his hands back and clamping something cold around his wrists. He gasped as the fires within him froze, the temperature in his hands immediately dropping as his chi thrashed uselessly against the metal. His body was unresponsive as the soldiers dragged him back towards the ship, but he managed to meet his uncle's eyes and shake his head.
    Go.


    AU after Book 2 episode 1. Azula succeeds in capturing Zuko, but Iroh escapes her grasp. The banished prince soon realises exactly how unwelcome he is amongst the Fire Nation, to devastating consequences. Meanwhile, with his nephew's life on the line, Iroh turns to his last hope of help: the Avatar.

    Summary

    Zuko realizes his destiny much earlier. As in, as soon as he wakes up in the palace after his Agni Kai and is told he is banished. Unfortunately, he's never been a patient one. So he storms right up to Ozai and tells him what he's going to do. And gets locked up for over three years. Then, one day, he's being pulled out and told he's the new Fire Lord.

    A "Zuko never meets the Gaang and suddenly becomes Fire Lord after three years of literal torture" AU. In which the Gaang doesn't know what to think of this new Fire Lord who happens to be the missing nephew of Aang's firebending teacher, Iroh is misunderstanding a few things, and, sure, maybe the world hates the Fire Nation, but the Fire Nation LOVES Zuko, and he can work with that.

    Summary

    A list of characters both canon and original for my story 'Fractures' to simply help anyone keep track if they get confused. Updated every so often. Each update updates the status of a character that was already in the story, too.

    Note: Character Bios are now going to begin being included as time permits

    It'd be great if you'd read the actual fic, though, if you haven't!

    Summary

    After that fateful Agni Kai, Ozai makes a different call. Branded as a traitor and banished to a prison camp, Zuko learns how cruel the Fire Nation can be to its citizens. Three years, a water tribe raid, and an unexpected meeting with a gang of over-enthusiastic idealistic children puts Zuko back in the spotlight. The revolution is coming and it wants another poster boy, but Zuko is not willing to lend his face to the cause.

    Summary

    Zuko really wants to fix the spirit problem with Aang, but that's kind of hard to do when he keeps getting sucked into another world with not-bending and weirdly concerned adults.

    Todoroki wants to be a hero. He did not sign up to rule a country. No, your actual ruler being missing is not an excuse.

    Or - Chaos in the form of two of my favorite boys and world-switch shenanigans.

    Summary

    Zuko finds them at the Western Air Temple, the first that they visit after his banishment. He doesn’t mean to, and he sure as hell doesn’t go looking for them, but he finds them anyway. He bolts out of the temple, past his uncle, past their camp, and runs until he reaches a forested meadow, where he drops to his knees and throws up everything he’d eaten that day.

    Or, alternately:

    Zuko discovers the truth about what happened to the Air Nomads, and also rediscovers an endangered species.

    Summary

    In a Universe that is a little less kind -and so much softer all at once- it only takes Zuko eleven years and a couple of thoughtless words to piss his father off so bad, he's banished before he knows it. Banished and saddled with an Uncle who thinks about tea, and speaks in proverbs, and has no idea that he's technically banished too. Zuko is relearning the hard way that little in life is nice and pure. Except for one. Her name is Strawberry Mochi, and he'd die for her. This is their story.

    Summary

    For as long as Zuko could remember, he remembered being a dragon. He knew what it meant to fly through the skies and taste the water of the clouds. He knew the feeling of starlight on scales, of the humming heart of fire within him.

    Or -

    After his Agni Kai, Prince Zuko is officially declared dead to the world.
