    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

    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.

    a.k.a: AU in which Zuko’s past is way more traumatic than the canon and he leaves the palace earlier after Ba Sing Se

    Summary

    Zuko and Azula are the best of friends. They're siblings, after all. They'll stick together and protect each other, no matter what.

    After Zuko's banishment, he is assigned to a small squadron in the Earth Kingdom rather than being sent to hunt down the Avatar. Things rapidly go wrong from here. as things tend to do. Zuko gets thrown into a myriad of situations, and through it all, will he still retain that loyalty he once felt toward his nation? Or will he start to see nothing but enemies, as so many people in the other nations do?

    Basically I found a lot of plot ideas I liked so I put them in the Plot Washing Machine (TM), threw Zuko in there too, and put it on spin. The Southern Water Tribe Warriors show up, the Freedom Fighters show up, the Gaang shows up, Toph Beifong herself shows up. There is... a lot of "showing up".

    Summary

    After Azula shoots Aang with lightning, Katara intentionally gets captured to protect him and is taken to the Fire Nation as a prisoner. Meanwhile, Zuko grapples with the consequences of betraying his beloved uncle as well as a certain waterbender that had once trusted him.

    Slow burn Zutara. Hurt/Comfort, Eventual Fluff. Rated E for blood and gore, profanity, mild smut, and overall dark themes.

    Summary

    Hakoda's fostered and adopted a bunch of kids since he had his own and married his husband. There's one more spot left in his house full of love and happy little ones.
    Zuko's sent to America for his own safety after getting removed from his father's house. But he's nine years old and probably too much for anyone to care for after what happened in November.

    Or: Hakoda takes in a scared little boy from Korea and shows him that he's worthy of love and a proper family.

    Summary

    Kyanna of the Northern Water Tribe could not see herself helping the last hope for a people she had thought to be extinct. She could not foretell about a fire nation princess who needed a little compassion and love. She had not meant to see her brothers and sister, much less join this expedition.
    But she did. Destiny is a funny thing. Who knew where hers lied?
    She came to help and heal, and was rewarded a story to tell for generations.
    And, boy, did she did tell it.

    Summary

    Zuko - or rather Lee - became a scribe in the Beifong's estate. It's a fresh start, with a solid cover story, no disgrace, and failure attached to his name. Yet, he still tries to find a way to make things right, to regain all that he's lost. He hasn't given up on being himself.

    His plans get interrupted by a blind girl, definitely too enthusiastic about illegal fighting rings.

    or

    Zuko being a scribe, slow-burn bond with the greatest earthbender, and whooops! No one called the Gaang but they finally arrived (Zuko is not pleased).

    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 the Southern Water Tribe because if that isn't in an ATLA fic is there even a point?

    Summary

    He was an enigma; a puzzle she wanted to solve. She was an open book, and he wanted to get lost in her pages.

    This is an "alternate" version of the original story. The only difference is this one is expletive-free so my wonderful beta, FireLadyFae, could work on it with me. I'll still be posting to both versions every week!

    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).
