    Summary

    Katara and Zuko's mission on board The Southern Raiders goes badly wrong, and they are captured and imprisoned in the unforgiving hull of the ship.

    Katara now finds herself locked in a small room with a boy that she refuses to trust, and nine years worth of trauma and guilt swimming in her mind. She is resolute in her hostility towards Zuko, but as the horrors of their captivity unfold, an undeniable bond is formed in the quiet moments between their captor's torments.

    When they find themselves safely back with their friends on Ember Island, they are both sporting deep scars – old and new, seen and unseen. Katara struggles to reconcile all the pieces of herself and figure out who she truly is. And Zuko continues to battle with his past guilt, and the new guilt that arises from his growing feelings towards Katara.

    As their bond deepens – it may be the lifeline they both so desperately need to pull them from the dark waters of their past.

    Summary

    For five years, Katara has been settling into being the Avatar's Girl. But she misses her old life. The life where she wasn't just 𝘩𝘪𝘴. Back when she was her own person. Back when the entire repopulation of the Air Nomads didn't rest on her. But she doesn't know how to fix the fact that her fighting spirit is draining, and the fire in her eyes is almost gone.

    But isn't this how her life is supposed to be? With Aang?

    The answer lies in a certain golden-eyed Firelord.

    Summary

    They ruled it a suicide. Katara knew different.

    Determined to find the answer to her mother's tragic demise, Katara finds herself spiraling out of control and into a dark place - she stops caring about her relationships, her school work, her internship - until an accident changes everything, and a chance meeting with a mysterious young man with a scar causes her to rethink everything she's ever been told about what happened to her mother...and what happens next.

    (I suck at summaries, okay? It's a Zutara crime, mystery, thriller, with hot action and smut interspersed throughout! I have a plan this time, I promise!!)

    Summary

    To commemorate the end of the Hundred Years' War and to ensure nothing like that ever happens again, the Four Nations agree to hold a Summit every year. Two weeks of political talks, cultural immersion and utter harmony. As Fire Lord, Zuko is in charge of hosting the first, set in the Fire Nation capital. As war-heroes, Katara, Sokka, Toph, Suki and of course Aang are among the guests.

    However, as Katara finds herself yearning for a life beyond that of the Avatar's faithful companion, it appears that politics will not be the only turbulent waters they have to navigate.

    Summary

    In a shocking turn of events, Katara finds herself assuming the identity of Princess Yue after the Siege of the North when Prince Zuko mistakes her for the water tribe princess. He brings her back to his father's stronghold of New Azulon, formerly Omashu, where she is held as a political prisoner to force the North's cooperation. While there, she meets some unlikely allies who are plotting to overthrow the Fire Nation's brutal regime.

    Due to his part in the Siege of the North Pole, banished and disgraced Prince Zuko is welcomed home with his honor restored after five years away, only to find himself the victim of an assassination attempt and political plots. He finds himself growing closer to Princess Yue despite their circumstances, and soon, he's faced with an impossible choice: does he turn his back on his family, his throne, or does he help his father stomp out insurrection and bring the Earth Kingdom to its knees, no matter the cost?

    Summary

    It's ludicrous. She knows it is. She could (scratch that, would) be killed if revealed, and if not that, the high-risk environment of war might just nick her off anyway. But her father is crippled, her beloved southern village severely depleted in numbers, and she has a duty to protect them. She will not turn her back on people who need her.

    And fighting the Fire Nation might just be the adventure she's been waiting for.
    (The handsome, albeit impulsive and fiery army captain certainly doesn't hinder the cause)
