    Summary

    Girl meets boy. Boy meets girl. Boom, they fall in love and live happily ever after. That's how the story goes. But this isn't a fairytale and Katara isn't a princess. She's just a regular, degular, shmegular girl. And the prince? Well, he's caught between trying to find himself and continuing a legacy.

    A modern, nonbending, AU where Zuko is good, Ozai isn't an evil dictator, and Azula isn't mentally ill or on the verge of a breakdown. Uncle Iroh is still Uncle Iroh.

    Summary

    Zuko's health is improving, and that's good. Ideal. But the better he gets, the closer Katara is to leaving the Fire Nation.

    She's got a whole day scheduled for them, as always, but Zuko has other plans, things about his home he wants to show his friend before she leaves. And as it turns out, there is far more that needs healing in the Fire Nation Palace than the body of the boy king.

    Oh, and it's almost, very, certainly positive that Zuko is maybe just a little bit falling in love with someone who maybe just a little bit loves him too.

    Summary

    Katara enters the famous baking competition to save her family store. Some of the contestants are familiar faces, some even friends, but one contestant turns out to be her greatest enemy. // Gen (very slightly zutara and various background rarepairs), situated in Ba Sing Se in modern-ish times (80s/90s), no bending. The main ingredients are a wide variety of baked goods, an attempt at Water Tribe culture, friend group shenanigans, the gaang in their early twenties, business problems and a mention of Iroh’s god powers.

    Summary

    Katara comes to visit the Fire Nation, and Fire Lord Zuko is very happy to see her.


    Zuko has always been an early riser. Maybe not a happy one, but he was up when the sun was up. Today, though, he woke up, remembered that Katara was finally here, and flopped out of bed with a smile.

    What should he do now, though? She didn’t like getting up early, especially now that she didn’t have to take care of a bunch of teenagers, so she probably wouldn’t be awake for a few more hours.

    Maybe...maybe he could make her breakfast?

    Summary

    “Why do you speak of him when he has little significance?” Yue interrupted. The Painted Lady would allow that; she was, after all, the embodiment of one of the oldest spirits to come to existence. She, however, smirked once more.

    “Did you know there has only ever been one other person to acknowledge my existence as a spirit outside of the people of my village since this war laid down its roots? The same person who impersonated the Dark Water Spirit. It was that Prince Zuko fellow.”

    Summary

    The war ended early, when Iroh usurped his brother from power after his cruel Agni Kai against Zuko. But instead of becoming Fire Lord, Iroh helped transition the Fire Nation into a federal republic led by a chancellor, effectively abolishing the absolute monarchy. As a result the royal family is no more, and Iroh takes Zuko and Azula under his wing and leaves for Ember Island.

    Now a decade later, Zuko and Azula work as bounty hunters/vigilantes and get along better than they ever had. But then Zuko receives a message from one distraught Chief Hakoda and Master Pakku of the Southern Water Tribe. Their mission for him: find and return the chief's daughter back to her family by any means necessary.

    What he didn't know, is that he will be chasing his future and destiny as well...

    Summary

    The pressing humidity in the air reminded Katara of that awful swamp and her stomach roiled in protest. She’d managed to keep a stranglehold on her emotions for the first half of their journey but the ride back was proving to be ten times more difficult. Her walls were crumbling with each mile down, leaving her fractured and shaky. The call of blood still sung to her, sickeningly sweet and alluring. She hadn’t needed the full moon to see every vein in Yon Rha’s body. She’d followed all the pathways and rivers with a flick of her wrist, feeling the surge of power with each one she pulled. Something deep inside of her had delighted in his pleading cries. He’d begged for mercy, the same mercy that he’d been too cold to show her mother. She’d never let him forget.

    It was as if some dark beast had been unleashed from its cage. She couldn’t stop thinking of Hama. She understood now. She understood perfectly.

    Summary

    Frankly, Katara was not sure how to feel about Zuko. It felt like a recurring theme with him. She had hated him for being Fire Nation and chasing her and her friends down to the ends of the earth. Then, in just one day, trapped together in a cave filled with green crystals, she had understood him and thought they have formed a bond of sorts. Then he betrayed her and the Earth Kingdom’s last stronghold fell and she hated him.

    And she made sure he knew exactly how much when he had the audacity to waltz in and declare his holy allegiance to the Avatar. And then… and then…

    Zuko offered her something that she had wanted, what she needed, ever since she saw the burned corpse that was once her mother — closure.

    Summary

    She hated him. She still does and nothing he does will ever change that. No matter how many pleas of how good he is he proclaims, or what he does to try to “help”, she will never let him forget what he did.

    And yet.

    Summary

    Aside from the yearly peace summits and the organized get-togethers with the rest of their friends, Katara had barely seen Zuko since the end of the war. She missed him most of all.

    And maybe she knew that, deep down, Zuko was the reason she was so excited to be back in the Fire Nation.
