    Summary

    [Zuko has been awake for thirty-six terrible, horrible hours.

    And now it’s nearly three am, the apartment is empty, and Zuko is so tired that he feels dangerously close to crying. It’d be easier if Sokka were here, but he’s out with some buddies from class. Zuko had been invited too, but declined for sleep-related reasons, and in retrospect he wishes that he’d gone out instead. He’d undoubtedly still be fairly miserable, but at least he wouldn’t be alone.

    Ugh. The world is awful. Everything is awful.

    Zuko wants a lobotomy.]

    Or,

    Zuko and Sokka have an arrangement.

    Summary

    Fire Lord Zuko was happy, content, for the first time in a long time. His nation is stable, the economy slowly rebuilding itself, the children laughing at school instead of on battlefields.

    He wakes up, every morning, to Sokka asleep beside him.

    He wants to be able to look over and see him like that, hair strewn over this face, peaceful, for the rest of their lives.

     

    Or

     

    It's Valentine's Day and I realized I've never read a Zukka proposal story.

    Summary

    he doesn’t know how to say the words that stick to his tongue— the pain is like a poem without flow— like an epic without meter. it’s a wound that won’t clot, and it’s something so much greater. the words that stick used to feel like a trap, but something about it seems freeing now— a little secret that he’ll take to his grave. because he knows that in the end, not matter what, it’s the one thing he’s sure to reach.
    (or,
    zuko isn’t okay— and he doesn’t know how to reach out).
