    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.

    Summary

    Eighty years after the Fire Nation began conquering the world, 12-year-old Avatar Aang's strength waned and he succumbed to the cold of the ice. His body was discovered by the hunters of the Southern Water Tribe and given burial, but the airbender child's identity was unknown to the tribe. Aang's passing coincided with the birth of Katara, the daughter of Hakoda and Kya, leaders of their village, but the significance of her birth remains unknown to her people. The war continues to wage in the world outside the South Pole. Most believe the cycle is ended, the Avatar lost to the world, and the Fire Nation nears victory...

    Summary

    After one year of searching for the avatar, Zuko realizes that no matter what he does, his father will never accept him or welcome him back. Iroh still furious at his brother for the Agni Kai, at the fire nation for his son's death makes a suggestion. Piracy. And the Blue Spirit Raiders are born.

    After finding the Avatar, Sokka sends Katara and Aang north to find masters to teach them. He doesn't go because he promised his father he would stay and protect the village. It breaks his heart to send his sister off, but Hakoda put him in charge, what else is there to do?

    A raid goes wrong and Zuko and his crew need a place to lie low. What is lower than the Southern Water Tribe. When they arrive they strike a deal with a very reluctant Sokka - a place to heal and repair the ship and they'll provide food, goods, building supplies.

    A bargain that begins in infamy, and ends in happy ever after.

    Summary

    Zuko has been hunting the avatar for six years of his life, and when he watches Katara take away the presumably dead avatar, he knows in his gut Aang will live. Before returning to the fire nation he comes across Sokka, who says that Aang sent him, to stay with Zuko until Zuko was ready to be good. The nineteen year old Zuko is forced to take Sokka prisoner and returns to the fire palace. Then the worst possible thing happens, he finds himself saving the water tribe peasant's life the only way he can think of - making Sokka his captured concubine.

    So now he is stuck in the palace, torn between sides of the war, between what he has always believed and what is right, with eyes constantly on them, and Sokka in his bed, being as much of an idiot as he always seemed to be.

    Only he learns that Sokka isn't an idiot, returning home sucks, and that maybe he can be the person the avatar, and his uncle, suggested he could be.

    Summary

    Thirty years ago, the Fire Nation attacked, throwing the world off balance. Katara entered the Fire Nation war camp at Ba Sing Se as a healer, prepared to do whatever it takes to play her part in stopping the war. Getting kidnapped with the Fire Prince and falling in love with him were not parts of the plan.

    AU. Zutara.

    This is the Zutara story I have always wanted to read but never found it anywhere. So I decided to write it myself.

    Summary

    "Water is the element of change. The people of the Water Tribes are capable of adapting to many things. They have a sense of community and love that holds them together through anything. Fire is the element of Power. The people of the Fire Nation have desire and will and the energy and drive to achieve what they want. Earth is the element of substance. The people of the Earth Kingdom are diverse and strong. They are persistent and enduring. Air is the element of freedom. The Air Nomads detached themselves from worldly concerns and found peace and freedom." -Iroh

    What lies beyond his eccentricity.

    Summary

    salting the earth; the practice of spreading salt over a conquered city to both curse it and render its soil infertile, condemning its residents to famine.

    Summary

    One.

    In the moments where he's cold, calloused fingers and nostalgic memories in the dead of night. When he drags his wheat straw across Zuko's skin like a paintbrush. Pressing bloody lips to tan skin and dragging thin fingers across old scars.

    They don't talk all that often. In all that they understand each other, they are too similar to hold a conversation without a fight. There is a gap in their words, a chasm they can only ever breach with touch. Jet is cold, Zuko learns quickly. And not only his hands.

    Summary

    Zuko Rokura and Katara Nataok did not get along. The two seniors at Ba Sing Se University’s world-renowned dance program had hated each other’s guts for years. Zuko couldn’t stand Katara because when it came to ballet, she was everything he was not. She was graceful, with fluid motions that belied years of practice. Ballet seemed as easy to her as breathing, but the thing that ticked him off most about her was not her formidable technical skill. Her artistry infuriated him, the way she knew exactly how to tilt her head or place her hands to convey the proper characterization for every piece. Of course, the death stares she sent his way didn’t help. Nor did the time he bowled her over during a particularly difficult across-the-floor combination. Who knew grand jetes could be so dangerous?
    The Ballet!Katara and Tap!Zuko AU that literally nobody asked for.

    Summary

    Life is unpredictable and death is inevitable. People take life for granted. They never truly understand its importance, they are never able to grasp its true meaning before it has slipped through their fingers like fine grains of sand.

    Well, mine certainly felt like that. Of course, most people believe they'll live a long, wonderful, and fulfilling life, I didn't get to do that.

    Being given a second chance at life, without knowing why made me realize that life is what you make of it. Simply put, life is a question and you are the one that needs to answer: What is life?

    Some say it's God's sick, twisted idea of a joke or punishment for eating a mere apple. Perhaps it's that brief period where a waterdrop is falling from the sky downwards toward the ocean it came from. Yet again it might be the meaningless void between birth and death. Do we know? Hell no.

    Although one thing is for certain; Life's a bitch, and then you die.

    But in the end, it's the only thing you've got. So, have fun and cherish it as best you can. Because let me tell ya, dying is not fun.

    I learned that the hard way,

    And this is my story

    Summary

    [“You were the golden child. You were ‘gifted’. The world was at your fingertips - and then, one day, the world caught up. And the same people who called you gifted, who you thought understood you, decided you were a disappointment, and cast you aside. You had everything you thought you wanted until the world was swept out from under your feet. You were left with nothing, and there was no one to help you pick up the pieces.”

     

     

    “You have no idea what you’re talking about.”

     

    “Actually, I think I do. I was that child - I was you, once. And I found a way back from that. It took time and work, but I found it.”

     

    “Then what about me? What’s my way back?”

     

    “I don’t know, Azula. But we’ll find it together.”]

    ------

    Or, the story of Azula, and her long journey home from the war.

    Summary

    Hypothesis: Given the ambiguous nature of bending genetics, the cultural significance of the moniker “nomad”, and the prodigious mobility of airbending, it is highly improbable for the Fire Nation to successfully render an entire gene pool extinct. Therefore, the series title is false, and there is at least one other airbender.

    This study will focus on one such singularity known as Ty Lee.
