    Summary

    Ozai meant for Zuko to be killed when he sent him away. The fact that he didn't leads to a lot of complications for the poor boy, who faces being a political prisoner and pawn until he is given over to Aang. Growing past the abuse is a winding road and Zuko is thankful he has friends for the first time in his life to help him through it.

    Summary

    The world is divided. Normals and Benders hate each other and Benders are forced to occupy only their own territories lest they unbalance the new world order. Ozai, King of the Fire Nation, has plans to use this division to overthrow the Normal government and to restore freedom for the Four Nations. But his ambitions come with a hefty price- the loyalty of his son and heir, Zuko.

    When the sixteen year old Crown Prince is horribly punished by his father for disagreeing with his agenda at his first political meeting, he realizes that his father is not the man he used to look up to anymore. He is forced to go on the run, alone and injured, leaving his royal life behind.

    Can he find a new purpose before he loses sight of himself? It's a little hard when you're lost in a city full of skyscrapers with no one to call...

    Summary

    Her whole brain feels like it’s been stuffed with molasses. Slow, half-baked thoughts slough through, but too much focus on a single one makes her head ache painfully. Aang is the first to filter past, as usual. She was supposed to be meeting him, she thinks. The details are hazy.

    Summary

    Iroh isn't perfect, but he is a better Uncle. After an unknown spirit saved his nephew from certain death, he couldn't risk losing him again. He's helped Zuko unindoctrinate himself and heal from Ozai's abuse. As a consequence, however, Zuko has decided to take matters into his own hands and risk his life being a vigilante while in the Earth Kingdom, and a bold, caring Prince in the colonies.

    Zhao is an ever-looming threat. Rebellions are starting to rise within the colonies, offering allegiance to their proclaimed "Phoenix Prince." The Earth King and his armies aren't doing shit to protect their people. Somebody has to take up the mantle and lead, and Zuko's never been much of a bystander.

    His father had once said that he was lucky to be born. Zuko sometimes thinks that he’s lucky to still be alive. Everyone else seems to think that he should’ve died by now, anyway.

    Summary

    “You sure I can’t tempt you to come adventuring to unknown lands with me? Have a change by going on a field trip with less chance of death than our old ones?”

    It’s an invitation Sokka has extended twice before when staying at the palace; on the day he leaves, he asks Zuko if he wants to come with him. And both times he had watched Sokka walk out of the palace gates, wishing he could be beside him instead of closed in his office focused on his duties as Firelord.

    This time though, Zuko says something he hadn’t planned to say. Something he doesn’t even realise is out of his mouth until he hears the words, and then takes him another moment more to realise that he means it.

    “Yeah, okay.”

    Summary

    That kind of love was dangerous, forbidden. Had been for decades. The idea of two men loving each other romantically was so insane that people actually got killed for it. Zuko knew that he had to push this part of himself down so far that it smothered in the darkness, hopefully killing it but if not burying it so deep that it never saw Agni’s light ever again.

    This, unsurprisingly enough, didn’t work.
