    Summary

    Ozai made a deal with Ursa not to kill Zuko. He didn't, however, make a deal for Zuko to survive or stay in the Fire Nation. Ursa should have been more specific in her deals.

    No matter. Ozai won't be the one to personally kill Zuko. He'll just make it very hard for him to survive.

    Summary

    Uncle had hugged him tight and asked him to please reconsider. Had practically begged Zuko to stay.

    But Zuko had worked too hard, for too long, not to take the opportunity to earn back his father’s love.

    It was only once he had opened the door to his childhood bedroom and found Azula’s new training room, once he had been shown to the empty spare room with no bed, once he had been refused dinner, once he had been struck around the face by rough, familiar hands, that he remembered that Ozai’s love was very different to Iroh’s.

    Ozai’s love hurt.

    Ozai’s love burned.

     

     

    The summer Zuko spent back at his father’s house the year he turned sixteen.

    Summary

    Iroh almost missed his nephew’s sudden halt in the street, because the shop was so innocuous. A tiny antique dealer, nestled between a book shop and a cafe.

    But the boy’s face lit up as he moved inexorably towards the window display.

    Above shelves and shelves of random old knick knacks rested on faded painted boxes, hung two swords, crossed in the center.
    Zuko stared at them, spell bound.

    Before the boy had time to protest the purchase, Iroh had the clerk wrap the swords and their sheath in brown paper and handed over his credit card.

     

    Iroh buys Zuko his first swords. Iroh makes sure he keeps them.

    Summary

    In one universe, Ozai looked at his newborn son and saw disappointment. In another, he saw a way to rival his brother. In both, he looked at his daughter and saw a weapon. The question would be who was the wielder.

    Azula was never anyone’s idea of a hero.

    Summary

    Zuko didn’t like Doctor Zhao.

    The man was creepy, and he looked at Zuko like a particularly interesting lab rat, trapped in an impossible maze.

    His first session had been almost two years ago, a month after his mother had left, and Zuko had hated every hour spent in the stifling little office since.

    But Father had ordered it. And Father’s word was law.

     

     

    Zuko’s first experience with therapy was sanctioned and supervised by his father. Healing was not on the agenda.

    Summary

    There was a lot that he planned on never, ever telling Sokka. But a part of him, a growing, traitorous part that whispered in his own voice rather than his father’s, desperately wanted to share some of it.

    So when Sokka asked, firmly but so, so gently, if he wanted to talk about the scar, he said yes.

    Summary

    In a world where the Avatar was never reborn and war cast its shadow over the four Nations, Prince Zuko's punishment is not to be exiled, but to enlist in one of the most truculent military programs. The Yuyan archers.
    When he's forced to stare the truest horrors of war right in the face, will he take a stand against what he was taught from birth, or will he fall into the footsteps of his ancestors?

    Summary

    People often pity the homeless. Zuko hated that.
    He didn’t need their pity. He didn’t need their help. He was perfectly capable of surviving on his own, regardless of what his sister might say. She laughed when he told her that he was running away. Rolled her eyes, mocked him for his weakness and made comment on his immaturity. But Zuko proved her wrong. It had been months since he had stepped out of those doors, and he was still standing.

    or

    Zuko prefers to be homeless then to put his uncle out of pocket. The gAang ends up turning things around

    Summary

    …it is complete, Prince Zuko.” said the nurse. She wasn’t smiling. Her smile had dripped down her cheeks. She indicated the pit in front of him; the fire swelled and disappeared only to then fill rapidly with water, the clearest water he had ever seen. Zuko peered timidly down at his reflection. It rippled softly.
    The blue-green of the pit was now coursing up through his arms, albeit faintly – and there, rippling with him, high on his shoulder, was an upside-down heart with a line through the tail.
    Prince Zuko, the heir to the throne, was a Little.

     

     

    Every citizen across every nation is classified into one of three: Little, Caregiver, Baseline. As royalty and heir to the throne Prince Zuko's classification is pulled forward. Zuko had his life mapped out in front of him; a journey which changes course when he's classified as a Little - a decision which clashes with his father's insistence he come out as Baseline.

    Summary

    She calls him at 2AM and doesn’t expect him to answer.
    The phone rings exactly three times before there’s the sound of ruffling of bedsheets and the soft groaned cursing of an unknown voice, urging a baby to come back to bed.
    Maybe she has the wrong number and this is stupid and of course he’d not keep the same number, she’s so stupid-
    “Azula?” Zuko’s gruff voice ask, worried and sleepy and confused and allowing her to take a deep relieved breath as her hands grip the paper in her hands in the dark of Father’s office.
    “She’s not dead, Zuzu.”

    (or the Modern AU where Azula runs away from her abusive father, Zuko is a good brother and Sokka is trying to cope with this sudden ‘Find Mom’ road trip his boyfriend and his boyfriend’s baby sister are getting into).

    Summary

    There were only three things in Zuko's life that he believed in wholeheartedly:
    1) Capturing the Avatar would restore his honor
    2) Azula always lied
    3) The universe hated him

    These facts were irrevocably, unquestionably true.

    Or are they?

    Summary

    The very first time his mother takes him to the theatre at age eight, Zuko is in love with it. It’s a play called Weep for the Night that they attend at the Sunset City Theatre just outside of the capital city and it’s beautiful. Zuko finds himself leaning forward over his knees, eyes wide with fascination, barely staying on his seat as he watches. He remembers the stories his mother will read to him sometimes, but even though she does the voices, it’s nothing compared to the swelling orchestra, intricate costumes, strategic lighting, and sculpted dialogue of the theatre.

     

    Zuko's love for theatre and some snippets of plays that were particularly influential to him from his very first play to The Boy in The Iceberg.
