    Summary

    Set in a non-bending AU, Azula and Katara are emerging Pai Sho prodigies, destined to eventually battle for the title of world champion. Covering an entire decade of their lives, this is a story about how their initial rivalry grows into mutual respect and friendship, before blossoming into something much more than that. Heavily inspired by the Netflix show The Queen’s Gambit. Most of our favorite ATLA characters are Pai Sho players.

    Firelord Ozai gives Princess Azula a mission: kill Prince Zuko, and everything she wants will be hers. The throne, the power, the glory--and all she needs to do is track down and hunt her disgraced brother.
    Easy, right? Azula definitely thought so.

    Summary

    Kaz has always known she had two talents: firebending and getting caught up in her own reckless decisions.

    Probably that’s why she ended up as a fugitive of the Fire Nation and part of a secret society. As long as she got to see the world it couldn’t be too bad right?

    It could, especially if ones gets caught in between an angry old friend, two distrusting siblings and a way too peaceful Avatar.

    -Kaz observed Katara while she stomped towards the ginormous fluff that was Appa. Then she moved her eyes towards Sokka, he was already sitting on the saddle and was holding his boomerang in what was meant to be a threatening way. She sighed and turned to Aang at her side.
    “They really hate me huh?”
    The Avatar looked back at her sheepishly. “Maybe hate is too strong of a word, they just have to get used to you. In any case I’m your friend now so you can lighten up!”
    Kaz raised one of her brows. “We’ve known each other for approximately three hours.”
    Aang just gave her a huge smile. “Yeah, but in these three hours you saved my life and healed my friends”
    Kaz looked at the sky. “Bonding experiences I guess.” She mumbled.
    If possible Aang smiled even wider. “Exactly!“.-

    Summary

    After rescuing Agent Korra, she goes through the painful process of recovering, both mentally and physically, from her kidnapping and torture. Agent Sato has to deal with the aftermath of her father's arrest, which means she is now the CEO of a company she never wanted. As both agents have to take a leave of absence from URSA, their fellow agents carry on trying to locate Lishi, as well as their other missions. The Red Lotus leaders may be dead, but evidence of the terrorist group keeps popping up throughout the four nations. Kuvira is promoted to general, and questions of her loyalty start to arise. And all the while, Agent Korra keeps dreaming of her trip to the spirit world as she tries to figure out how to reach Raava again. Agent Sato has to figure out how to support her girlfriend throughout all of this, deal with her own trauma from her kidnapping and torture, keep Future Industries from failing, and still attend the Kage Bai meetings with a morose Korra.

    All either of them wanted was to be secret agents again.

    Summary

    Toph has always rolled with the punches, taking blows as well as dishing them out. Life is funny that way - shoving you into the dirt one minute and lifting you up the next. She's gotten used to the muck and grime, appreciates it for what it is and how it shapes her. Zuko isn't the 'go with the flow' type. He's more of a 'run headfirst into a wall type and hope to break free to the other side'.

    Summary

    All of the URSA agents were adjusting to life after the incidents in Ba Sing Se. Basalt was happy to be home and Saturn was even happier about that. But most affected were the Avatar and Gear Head. Their newly cemented relationship was still a secret to most of their fellow agents and they were fine with that for now. Asami was still healing from her gunshot wound, but that didn't mean she would sit around and do nothing. She had questions. Questions that needed answers.

    Why did they have to eliminate the Dai Li? What would happen now in Ba Sing Se and the rest of the Earth Kingdom, with no ruler and no walls to contain everyone? Where are the Red Lotus hiding and what are their plans next? How does the rogue Kyoshi warrior fit in to all this? But most importantly: who is really calling the shots in the four nations?

    Summary

    Part of the Instinctual Verse, please read those first!

    Zuko is glad that he had started getting his bending back before they hit the frigid North Pole, but it turns out that the Northern Water Tribe doesn't feel the same way.

    They hadn't even gotten close to the city yet and he was half frozen in a block of ice, freezing and bound as his captors ignore Katara, Aang, and Sokka's protests. He really should have known something like this would happen, but as usual he'd underestimated his luck and now he had to come up with a way to convince the Northern Chief to allow a firebender to walk free in his village.

    He HAD to, because he wasn't going to let himself become a prisoner. Not again.
