    Summary

    It has been said that fire benders, when in love, create a spark so bright, it could rival Agni himself. It’s probably just a fairy tale, but Zuko is a little worried, and very embarrassed, when little lights start to appear whenever he is near a certain old friend. Surely it’s nothing. It must have something to do with the fact that he can't control his inner fire. Yep that's totally it.

    Zuko is returning to the Fire Nation after nearly five years, and Mai has noticed something different in how he acts. There’s something bigger happening within the Fire Nation, and it’s making Mai nervous. Zuko is struggling to find a place he can call home. Mai is starting to make decisions in her own life while attempting to help save the world. This is a story that gives Mai and Zuko the story they deserve with a little extra magic thrown in.

    Summary

    When the Avatar emerges from an iceberg, Sokka is reluctant to join him on a journey around the world. He finds himself wondering about an old childhood friend.

    Zuko, having been banished at the age of thirteen and separated from his uncle at fourteen, decides to do what any logical teenager would do in his situation: don a mask and become a pirate. Under the name of Lee, Zuko finds himself with friends and a life he (surprisingly) enjoys. But how will he react when he hears the Avatar has returned?

    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

    [ Book One of Three ]

    Izumi never had anything for herself; not a name, not a job, not a title. Forced into a life of servitude because of her mother’s debt, she learned 3 things while living at the palace.

    1. Don't disturb 'Princess' Azula and only come when called; oh yeah, and put up with any abuse she throws at you.

    2. Never look the Fire Lord in the eyes.

    3. Be there for Zuko. Always be there for Zuko.

    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, June and Nyla show up, royalty from multiple nations show up, the Gaang shows up, Toph Beifong herself shows up. There is... a lot of "showing up".

    Summary

    Zuko knows it was a mistake, but it comes out of his mouth anyway, and somewhere down the line everyone thinks he and Sokka are dating, which was not his goal with trying to come out to his nation, but now it's happened and he has no idea what to do about it.

    He expects Sokka, when he returns, to be mad about it, or to laugh it off and correct everyone's misguided opinions. The last thing he expects is Sokka to suggest they run with it, maintain Zuko's precarious reputation as best they can. They spend most of their time together, anyway, what's the harm in having to pretend to be a couple for that time?

    A lot, it turns out.

    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

    "Sokka" Zuko spoke, garnering the tribesman's attention.

    "Fire Lord Zuko," Sokka said, lowering his gaze to avoid Zuko's eyes, "you look well," Zuko felt so small.

    Sokka spoke mechanically, rehearsed, like the conversation was strained and the six words were something he might choke on.

    It dawned on him.

    Zuko was alone, not even Hakoda was here to defend him from the carnivorous harpies, it was just him. His hands shook, lips trembled, but he did his best to show face. His smile disappeared, his warmth dying like the last coals on a hearth, and Zuko felt cold.

    He hated the cold.

    Summary

    " 'So Sokka’s-'

    'In the Fire Nation,'

    'In the Fire Nation,' Zuko echoed, 'Because he wanted to surprise me,'

    Katara nodded sagely.

    'Like I said. The two of you. Idiots.' "

    Summary

    Shoot. What would Uncle Iroh say? No -- he can figure this out himself, he’s the firelord, for Agni’s sake, he can’t rely on his uncle forever.

    He’s hidden his feelings for this long, surely he can control them for two and a half more days, right? Just long enough to visit the Southern Water Tribe, see some of his friends, and then return to his firelord duties before the winter months truly begin. This will be easy. There’s absolutely no reason to panic.

    Summary

    He made him hollow you see. Empty inside, with button eyes and a stitched up smile. And when he’s had enough, he knows where he’ll go. He’ll be unstitched and pulled apart limb by limb. So that he can be made anew into whatever needs doing next. He can be as strong, and as beautiful and as fierce as he needs him to be. After all, he is his father's loyal son.

    So even as he trips down stairs and falls out of trees. He assures that father loves him.

    He HAS to. He whispers late at night in his dreams and his body burns.

    - an au where Zuko covers for Ozai again and again not realising that Toph can hear his heart.
