    Summary

    The attack on the Northern Water Tribe goes differently, Aang and the ocean spirit don’t destroy the entire Fire Nation fleet, only most of them.

    Zhao escapes, taking Sokka and a few other Water Tribe men as prisoners. Knowing Sokka is traveling with the Avatar he gets sent to Zhao’s “special prison camp” that is hidden near the Earth Kingdom colonies.

    Sokka gets a taste of the real war, not the war that he thinks he knows from traveling with the Avatar. While Zhao’s prisoner, he struggles to survive the inhuman conditions. Alone and thought to be dead, he feels himself slowly losing hope.

    Seeing a familiar face brings back his hope, even if that face is the scarred Prince of the Fire Nation.

    Sokka and Zuko come together to survive and end up depending on each other for a lot more than they ever thought possible.

    Summary

    Kyoko was blessed by Avatar Kyoshi herself. Born a bandit Daofei, she's on the run from the entire world. Forced by the surroundings, she stumbles upon Zuko's ship, where she turns from a prisoner to a friend in a matter of weeks. But when Kyoko has the possibility to do something good for once in her life, she joins Team Avatar and fights to end the war and bring peace and balance to the world.
    Easier said than done, especially when you're a wanted criminal and destiny has a funny way of screwing up your life at every turn you make.

    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. The Gaang inadvertently kidnap Zuko in a misunderstanding of the situation to be Aang's firebending teacher, altering his and the Gaang's path.

     

    Also a couple of solid chapters of Zuko getting to vibe and bond with Hakoda and get another dad who loves him because if that isn't in an ATLA fic is there even a point?

    Summary

    “I need your help with something,” Sokka murmured, looking out towards the horizon. 

    “With what?” Zuko asked. Sokka could see Zuko turning towards him in his peripheral, but he didn’t look away from the ocean. 

    “I need you to teach me how to firebend.”

    Zuko sucked in a breath. “Sokka- I can’t- I can’t teach a nonbender how to bend, that’s just not how it works. I’m sorry.”

    Sokka huffed. “I’m not a nonbender."

    ---

    Or, the AU of all AU's, where Ozai banishes Zuko to the South Pole, Sokka can firebend, Zhao is the season one villan, and Kanna is Over Their Fucking Shit.

    Summary

    Book one ends with two major diffrences: 1. Sokka went on the mission with Hahn (it did not go well) 2. Zhao survives the North Pole and that proves unfortunate for everybody (except Zhao, obviously) 

    Imprisoned on Zhao’s war ship, Sokka and Zuko have to work together to survive. They are not very enthusiastic about this prospect. 

    And they argue. 

    A lot.

    Summary

    Following the end of the war, the gaang splits up to continue their lives in times of peace. With everyone going their own ways and Toph the only one still at the Fire Nation place (as she didn't want to return home) becomes closer friends with Zuko during this time as she decides how to pass on the skill of metal bending. She refuses to leave him alone as she watches him sink into depression at the idea of being abandoned by everyone again. Considering they have one eye and two braincells that Zuko doesn't know how to use and Toph has never tired to use between them, their friendship causes mishaps as well as growth and support as they visit each other on various occasions usually resulting in Toph making a lot of enemies as she tries to drag the Fire Lord away from his duties. Then mix a solid amount of Zuko angst into that and here we go, this thing.
    Zuko and Toph just vibe in this and have no thoughts head empty, they have the very close sibling dynamic, not dating.

    In which Zuko has far too much trauma and receives love and affection from his odd group of friends and a therapist because lets be honest, he needs one.

    Summary

    Azulon saw the dragon in his grandson as a sign that his reign and his descendants’ reign shall be long and prosperous.

    Iroh saw the phoenix in his nephew as a sign that the war would be ending in his lifetime and a new era would be approaching not long after.

    Ursa saw the tiny down feathers along her child's back and the small black scales scattered down her son’s fragile arms and cried because she knew that her husband would see her child as a token towards victory; as a beast to be conquered to appease his ego.

    They were all right.

    Summary

    There's an owl. It's not a cat-owl or a badger-owl or even an owl-deer.  It's an owl, it's huge, and it's not pleased to see them.

    "Humans. What are you doing in my library?"

    Zhao bows deeply to it. "Honoured spirit, I am a humble seeker of knowledge. I had heard of the wonders of your library and wished to see it for myself."

    What follows is the most nauseating combination of flattery and lies Zuko has heard for a long time. Not that Zuko has the right to accuse an honourable Fire Nation citizen of lying. And he should want the spirit to believe Zhao. Right?

    Right. Anyway. Something something knowledge for the sake of knowledge. Honoring the spirits that keep our sailors safe and bear us where we need to go.

    "And your companion?" the owl asks. Wan Shi Tong, whose name literally means the guy who knows everything. And he can't hear what utter moosebullshit Zhao is spouting? Really?

    "Him?" Zhao says. He pats Zuko's shoulder, and Zuko grits his teeth. "He's my assistant.  A bit simple, but he can follow orders. I'll ensure he doesn't trouble you."

    Or,

    Zuko goes to the library. He ends up staying for three years.
