    Summary

    After his Agni Kai, Zuko flees the Fire Nation without Iroh or his crew. He finds himself stranded, alone, and injured in the Earth Kingdom when taken in and raised as a healer and farmer by an Earth Kingdom couple. He finds new ways to use his bending and to influence in the changing of the war with new understanding of himself, his bending, and the war. As someone with new perspectives and influence he is able to provide a greater understanding of being a teacher, warrior, and friend when meeting the gaang.
     Where Zuko gets to recover before using anger to protect himself

    Zuko is still in disbelief over what had happened. Sometimes not sure if he had imagined the whole thing. The pain on the left side of his face shooting through his head and down his neck is what brings him to his senses every time. Pain that is so intense that it blurs the vision in his good eye. Sometimes he can’t believe it even as the bandage completely obscures the vision of his left eye. The bandage that his hands still shake horribly from with pain as he removes it at night to clean the wound. All that time, trying to hold back tears that want to fall so badly from the pain, utter betrayal, and humiliation he feels so deep in his soul.

    Summary

    It sits nestled in the heart of the city, tucked away just five minutes’ walk from the high street, down the hill and along a lane that looks as though it was dropped out of myth into the midst of the hustle and bustle.

    The Bookshop of Inuksuit.

    Time seems to move differently here, in this strange shop with its whispering books and its cryptic, blue-eyed owner. This is a place of magic and mystery, a place people come to in the hopes of finding their way, and now — for better or worse — Zuko's standing on its doorstep.

    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.

    Summary

    How one Earth Kingdom Noble adopted a starved Fire Nation Prince, gave him a couple of accidental therapy sessions, promised to insult Ozai to death, and much more...

    How the same Earth Kingdom Noble many years before befriended Fire Nation Swordmaster, terrorized a town together, and lived their lives being walking nightmares for everyone around. Xaalo continued even when their ways parted (Pi too, but more discreetly).

    Summary

    An essay analysis of Iroh's quote about true humility being the antidote to shame. I explain why Iroh doesn't understand what Zuko is going through, because Zuko's shame from his abusive upbringing is different from Iroh's shame at his history of military violence.

    Summary

    People often pity the homeless. Zuko hated that.
    He didn’t need their pity. He didn’t need their help. He was perfectly capable of surviving on his own, regardless of what his sister might say. She laughed when he told her that he was running away. Rolled her eyes, mocked him for his weakness and made comment on his immaturity. But Zuko proved her wrong. It had been months since he had stepped out of those doors, and he was still standing.

    Summary

    Zuko knew from the moment Azula entered his bedroom that he was in trouble. She knew that the Avatar was alive, and that it was only a matter of time before father found out. He had very little options ahead of him but one thing was clear.

    He wasn’t going to have it easy either way.
