    Summary

    Zuko doesn't remember how he became so... different.

    What he does remember were the hands of his Soulmates guiding him throughout his struggles.

    Also, that Father put him in a coffin with a straw and the words: "Firebending comes from the breath. It's time you learn some cotroll."

    Summary

    What does it mean when you’re living through a pandemic, suddenly find yourself in Ba Sing Se with absolutely no explanation, and the only thing you have going for you is an uncanny knowledge of your Spotify playlists? Escapism during quarantine just got a whole lot more epic. OC Self-Insert.

    Summary

    Ozai said he'd killed Iroh. So when he shot lightning at Zuko- the lightning came back. Azula's fire broke when she saw Ozai dead- Zuko promised to fix things.
    Everyone is confused about where the Fire Nation troopes are going.
    Zuko is Fire Lord. Everyone is kind of confused about that too.

    Summary

    Fire. What is this word, exactly? The phenomenon of combustion manifested in light, flame, and heat. One of the four elements of the world. Burning passion. Liveliness of imagination. Fuel in a state of combustion. A destructive burning. Fire.

    Emiko's found that fire destroys...everything. With the help of an old man and a fiery prince, she finds that it can also be used to create life, joy, and plenty of angst.

    Summary

    Zuko is one of the GAang now, and he's much nicer and less bloodthirsty than Sokka had originally thought, and he's definitely much hotter without that stupid ponytail, but Sokka does not like Zuko. Not in that way, at least. And this is something that he knows for a fact to be true.

    It is in fact very much not true. Sokka realizes this because of a...food fight?

    Summary

    Agni was done with just watching and never interfering. He was taking Zuko's and the Fire Nation's destiny in his hands. - Or the AU where the Gaang adopts an opinionated little turtleduck.

    Summary

    To be good at politics, you have to understand people; Zuko’s perception of his own skill in this regard swings wildly on a pendulum between ‘hey I’m actually pretty good at this’ and ‘why am I such a fucking idiot’.

    Summary

    Zuko woke up in the middle of a group of people. Unknown people. For the first time, this was not a bad thing.
    And it would seem water-healing was much more versatile than he had ever imagined. Or perhaps it was just this particular waterbender.
    After all, none of these people adhered to the established bending forms.

    Summary

    Zuko idly mentions that he hasn’t seen Uncle in months-- and leaves out the fact that it’s slowly killing him inside-- and Aang suggests that he does what they’ve all been doing:

    Make up an excuse.

    Zuko is scandalized, because he’s the Firelord and he has to be responsible, but the more he thinks about it, the more he’s sure that he can manage to do great good for his people with a visit to Ba Sing Se. It’s not so much making up an excuse as it is knocking out two pigeon-hawks with one stone. Convenient for everyone.

    Summary

    “I don’t think this is any of your concern, son,” he establishes firmly, glancing over Zuko to where Katara’s disappeared around the corner.

    A chill shoots down Zuko’s spine, and when Hakoda steps right, Zuko moves again to block his way.

    Summary

    Azula did everything right. She tirelessly defended her nation. She had perfect fire bending. She had even conquered Ba Sing Se when the Dragon of the West could not.

    So, why was she not good enough? Why was it always Zuko?

    OR:
    Azula is miserable in her cage-sorry, mental institution. That is until Zuko offers to take her to Ember Island to sort out their Issues (TM) and give Azula her Life-Changing Field Trip.

    It sounds really weird, but that's because I suck at descriptions. Basically, this fic dives deep into Azula's psychology, but also tries to be readable. It's a character study that went a little astray. Enjoy :)

    Summary

    Fifteen years since the war had ended, and still Zuko remembered every step of the way as if it were yesterday. More than anything, he remembered Sokka. He'd been in love with him then, and he still was.

    Summary

    Zutara Month 2020: Day 29 (home) & Day 30 (without)

    There’s a girl dancing on the floor. Luminescent strobe lights illuminate her figure like a glowing blue sun. She’s wearing a white sleeveless button-down that shows off just a bit of cleavage, and some navy skinny jeans that are slightly ripped and cuffed at her ankles. Her wavy, chocolate hair is skewed out of its high ponytail. There’s sweat beading on her forehead and upper lip; her mascara is smudging under her electric-blue eyes. In other words, she’s a mess.
    She’s the most beautiful mess Zuko has ever laid eyes on.

    Zuko despises clubbing, but circumstance has him out with his sister and friends. He wants nothing more than to just go home and sleep before training in the morning. There's nothing that could entice him to stay except out of necessity... until she appears.

    Summary

    When Uncle told him they would be moving, Zuko hadn't expected how much his life would change.

    Or the High School AU where Zuko and Aang are new students and meet a pair of blue-eyed siblings along with their two best friends. A lot of typical coming of age shenanigans ensue.

    Or where Zuko and the Gaang learn how to heal their wounds with each other's help.

    Summary

    "Sokka still doesn't get this whole 'dominance and submission' thing, much less the 'sadism and masochism' one.

    What he does get is that making Zuko say nice stuff about himself? And forcing him to listen to Sokka say nice stuff? Really, really does it. For both of them.

    Wherein: Sokka finds the service top he was meant to be all along, and they should probably learn to negotiate one of these days."

    Summary

    A collection of cringe worthy works that would only interest Students and alumni from schools ending in "Institute of Technology".

    The plot bug took over: Featuring Katara being Salty about college admissions, Sokka who just wants to get a break, Some sweet Aang/Toph awkward dating, Zuko just wanting to help, and Azula and Ty Lee's attempts to prevent homophobic Ozai from discovering their relationship.

    Water (Civil and Enviromenmtal Engineering), Earth (Mechanical Engineering), Fire (Electrical and Computer Engineering), Air (Aerospace Engineering). Semesters ago, the four Engineering Disciplines Lived in Harmony. Then everything changed when the ECE majors attacked (got extra funding). Only the Physics Major, master of all four engineering disciplines, could stop them (by transferring funds to the College of Sciences). But when the world needed them the most, they disappeared (some engineering schools neglect their natural science departments, including physics). A hundred days have passed and my brother and I discovered a new physics major: a transfer student named Aang. And while his Aerospace Engineering skills were great, he has a lot to learn before he’s ready to save anyone.

    Summary

    Inspired by MuffinLance's Chaos Avatar Zuko AU.
    Betaed by h_faith_marr

    Ursa's son was born without the inner flame that every fire bender carried within themselves, and for that, her husband was going to have him killed. There was nothing she could do to stop him, as she clung to her child, and the man attempted to wrestle Zuko away from her. She was pleading with him to spare the child, but Ozai refused to budge. At least not until Fire Sage Shyu suggested that they pray to Agni to bless the child with bending. But Agni refused. Vaatu, however, didn't.

    Summary

    While disguised as the Blue Spirit, Zuko is caught by the Dai Li who are determined to make sure this thief will never cause trouble again. And what better way to do so then to erase his memory and make him believe he is solely tea server Lee, a loyal Earth Kingdom citizen? But tampering with Zuko’s memory has unintended, deadly consequences, as his inner flame is being extinguished by this new life of lies. Iroh has no idea what to do, who he can turn to, when fate delivers Katara to the tea shop. She’s not sure she can help restore Zuko’s memories, but the bigger question is… should she even do so?
