    Summary

    He hears more than see’s Azula being burnt. She screams in pain, and in agony as his eyes unfocus. He falls to the floor in fear and anger, the tears and shaky breaths of flame escaping him despite his best efforts. He runs from the room, following the noises of sorrow, of anguish, of pain before he is stopped by a hand on his shoulder.
    ___

    Zuko's mother left earlier than canon, Azula is a shit person sometimes but with good intentions, Iroh has visions of spirits telling him zuko is special, and the gaang are just confused, but are along for the ride anyway

    Summary

    For three years, Zuko searched for the Avatar. But he'd never really thought that much about what would happen once he succeeded.

    Alternatively: Zuko actually has a plan for catching the Avatar at the North Pole. Somehow, it works. But after a few days of pai sho and tea, he begins to wonder if maybe it would've be better if it hadn't.

    Summary

    On the day of that fateful Agni Kai, Zuko stands, bright and proud. Ozai may have tried to smother Zuko's flames, but he doesn't snuff him out. He cannot snuff him out. Because Zuko burns with the fury of Agni herself.

    or; Zuko doesn't waste two years looking for the Avatar, because he is too busy fighting for his people. This changes everything.

    Summary

    Katara and Toph go to the tea shop and discover Zuko is waiting tables way earlier than in the show. Slower exploration of Zuko's life as a tea server. Also the Dai Li are terrible customers. The Gaang ends up coming to Zuko's aid, but that might make things worse.

    Eventual and slight Zutara feels because I ship it like I'm a playwright for the Ember Island Players. But I also suck at anything remotely romantic so ... you have to squint to see it. And I try to be fair to all canon ships.

    Summary

    After Zuko's Agni Kai with Ozai and he learns of his banishment, Zuko flees the Fire Nation afraid, confused, and alone, leaving his uncle behind who has a chance to grow close to Azula. Zuko understands much sooner that his father never loved him and finds himself in an Earth Kingdoms forest surrounded by boys who want to free their kingdom from the Fire Nation. Zuko joins the Freedom Fighters claiming to be a nonbender from the Earth Kingdoms, growing in confidence in himself. When it is reveled that he is a firebenders, Jet is forced to understand not all members of the Fire Nation are war mongers and both boys are significantly less angsty when the Gaang shows up.

     

    Also a couple of solid chapters of Zuko getting to vibe and bond with the Southern Water Tribe because if that isn't in an ATLA fic is there even a point?

    Summary

    "Scars are generally seen as a weakness. Especially for nobles. It’s unsightly.”

    There’s a moment of dead silence in which almost all eyes turn to stare at the left side of his face. Zuko keeps his mouth firmly closed.

    It’s Toph who breaks the tension. “Yeah, not to call your nation out or anything, Sparky, but you literally just said that you have a massive, blinding, and deafening scar on the side of your face. As the crown prince, that seems a little hypocritical of them.” Toph snarks.

    AKA: An innocent comment about scars leads to Zuko spilling his Tragic Backstory, and the chaos that follows that particular revelation.
