    Summary

    For three years, Zuko searched for the Avatar. But he'd never really thought that much about what would happen once he succeeded.

    Alternatively: Zuko actually has a plan for catching the Avatar at the North Pole. Somehow, it works. But after a few days of pai sho and tea, he begins to wonder if maybe it would've be better if it hadn't.

    Summary

    When Ursa left her family to save her eldest son, she didn't expect the fallout of the Fire Lord's murder to have such a devastating effect. As her country reels under the sudden powershift, an series of unnatural events sunders the continent sending Pandora into a new age of chaos and devastation.

    On the other side of the struggle, Hakoda has been separated from his family by a supernatural storm that divides the world in half. Under the burden of war and starvation, the once mighty Earth Kingdoms, Water Tribes, and Fire Nation have splintered into competing warlords in a new battle for supremacy.

    Among all of this, their sons and daughters have been driven to the ends of the Earth. However, Ursa and Hakoda are not ready to give up yet. With the help of a young avatar, the mere children seem like the world's best hope for peace. Unfortunately, finding them will not be easy, and they are all bitter enemies. Can the couple save their kids, and the world, from destruction? Or will the strain of a century long war shatter all hopes for reconciliation?

    The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of Aang and his friends once again, yet the situation is more complicated than ever before.

    Summary

    "Prince Zuko," Iroh began, but the prince wasn't having it. He stormed away, not sparing his battered sparring partners a glance (he'd already bowed at the end of their match, anything else was unnecessary). Before he knew it he was in his quarters, flinging sparks from his fingers and hissing steam. When that passed, he aggressively lit his meditation candles and tried to calm down. It was difficult because unlike combat meditation came easily, which added insult to injury. Gentle flames licked the air and formed in his palms as well. They were warm and soothing, unlike how fire was supposed to be. Instead of stinging his skin with small burns, the flames numbed the scraps on his palms and the aches in his joints. He knew that by the time his meditation ended he would feel invigorated and new.

    His heart burned with shame; no wonder father had discarded him. There was no greater disgrace than having a son who was a healer.

    Summary

    Belief is a powerful thing. It is what raises civilizations, empowers rulers, inspires and drives humanity through many hardships, but belief is a double edged sword in this manner. When enough people believe, they have the power to change the world, or to kill a single man without lifting a single weapon.

    When the whole world believes that Zuko has died, the Fire Prince begins to lose his grip on the living world and starts to drift into a spirit void as he steadily loses himself. As each anchor in his life breaks and sends him forward to the afterlife unknowing of the young boy's existence in the mortal world, Zuko discovers that a terrifying spirit tale from his youth had a merit of actual truth to it. Who are you when the world has abandoned you to a slow painful death of being forgotten?

    Is he doomed to become the Blue Spirit or will the stubborn skepticism and paranoia of a certain water tribe boy be Zuko's last chance at survival?

    Summary

    inspired by @ashes-and-starlight's thing about zuko being a pirate and every other fic along the lines of that:
    .
    .
    “I…I’m going to find the avatar.”

    “But the avatar isn’t there anymore.”

    “I’m gonna try! He’s a criminal of the state.”

    “A person who has disappeared off the face of the earth for the past 100 years, last noted to be from an extinct nation, is someone you’ll look for?”

    “.....yes?”

    Uncle has a look on his face. It’s like disappointment, but it also looks like he’s trying not to laugh.

    .
    .
    .
    or, zuko pulls his shit together much more quickly and iroh's still along for the ride. just. a little more passive aggressively. featuring a (pirate) crew consisting of a lesbian wine aunt, a scary looking softie who cries when he sees small animals, a cranky but well meaning healer, and all sorts of other misfits:)

    Summary

    The Prince of the Fire Nation died years ago. Spirits are active once more, disturbed by the war, the reemergence of the Avatar and the birth of a new spirit. A boy spirit claimed by a cat spirit causes fate to ripple and change, like a pool of water, and Tui and La swim in lazy circles.

    Summary

    Mai's world burns around her as she watches the Agni Kai. No one is doing anything. Not Azula, who is watching on with a smile. Not the Fire Lord, who has a satisfied look on his face. Not Prince Iroh, who isn't even there.

    Mai's world is burning, and she knows she is the only one who can douse the flames.

    Or: What happens if Iroh isn't present for the Agni Kai? What happens when someone else steps up to take his place?

    Featuring: baby BAMFs, Mai and Zuko being chaotic goth BFFs, the Yuyan adopting not one but two (2) feral children, and June making excuses to visit the Pohuai Stronghold in order to check in on her apprentices (*cough, cough* little siblings *cough, cough*)

    Officially updating every other Monday!

    Summary

    When Zuko gets banished, he does not wait for Iroh, not wanting to cause more damage than he has already, and decides to hike it on his own. He manages quite well for the most part. He is on his own, living, doing whatever it was that needs to be done, when he accidentally ends up saving the Avatar. No big deal, or at least, it wasn't, until he gets roped into joining their little gang of misfits, and then actually begins to care for some of them, despite their idiocy. He just...doesn't know what to do with that.

    He does know that they can't know who he really is....

    Summary

    After his defeat at Ba Sing Se, Iroh made a different choice, returning home to claim his throne instead of searching the Spirit World for his son.
    And so, in time, it would come to pass that Chief Hakoda, in the face of an escalating war, kept his fleet back to hold the southern seas and trained both his children as warriors, and a certain iceberg never cracked until much, much later. Until the last strongholds of the Northern Water Tribe and the Earth Kingdom fell to Sozin's Comet.
    Until it was almost, very nearly, too late.
