    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

    He should have known it would not be easy.
    But when he is done, he will have saved his people.

     

    or

     

    Zuko has had enough with others using him. So he goes off on his own. But when the Gaang finds him at the Southern Air Temple, he decides to tag along. Partly to help his own people, partly just to mess with everyone he meets.

    (Would recommend reading the first part of the series for everything to be clear.)

    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

    Running a country is hard. Especially when 90% of the people living there hate you. But Zuko’s not a quitter. He’ll make ends meet. After all, he’s got nothing left to lose.

    It's got its tense moments, but this is actually something of a comedy. Zuko struggles to adjust to life after the war, and when life is hard, what else is there to do but laugh?

    Set almost 10 years after ATLA. Canon-compliant to ALTA (mostly) but not the comics or LoK.

    Summary

    He should have known something was going to happen. Really it should have been obvious. He just didn’t think the rest of the gang would have noticed a change in behavior. He didn’t think they cared enough to realize. He wouldn’t have, he chased them across the world for months and hurt them. Why would they care?

    Summary

    Girl meets boy. Boy meets girl. Boom, they fall in love and live happily ever after. That's how the story goes. But this isn't a fairytale and Katara isn't a princess. She's just a regular, degular, shmegular girl. And the prince? Well, he's caught between trying to find himself and continuing a legacy.

    A modern, nonbending, AU where Zuko is good, Ozai isn't an evil dictator, and Azula isn't mentally ill or on the verge of a breakdown. Uncle Iroh is still Uncle Iroh.

    Summary

    When Azula met her brother in Ba Sing Se & told him he could come home, he believed her, even though she had made this exact offer before. This time there was no loose-lipped Captain to give the game away, & he was brought back to the Fire Nation not as a hero, but in chains.

    When he is dragged from his cell months later, he expects to be facing his execution, not his coronation.

    Summary

    “You have shamed me, Zuko,” Father’s eyes glinted, “and so shame shall be your new teacher.” He leaned in, breath hot on Zuko’s face in contrast to the cold shiver rolling down his spine. “You are now and forevermore the property of General Bujing, who will be free to do with you and to you whatever he likes. You will live out your days as he sees fit until he decides to end your miserable life. And I will never have to suffer the shame of seeing your face again.”

    Or: Canon-divergent AU where Zuko is disowned and made a slave.

    Summary

    Yes, technically they did need a new roommate, but that didn't mean anyone was happy with living with their childhood bully. But it's Zuko vs Wrath of the Landlord and guess who won. Maybe they could make it work. Now if the Fire Nation could not restart the war that would be super cool.

    The Gaang is finally together for their university experience and Zuko becomes their roommate. a Modern Uni AU.

    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

    "Azula didn’t mean to burn the house down. Ask anyone: it was an accident. What loving daughter would set her home on fire with her father inside?"

    In which Azula is supposed to become a third-generation lawyer, Zuko is supposed to not be a family disgrace, and Ozai is supposed to love his children. None of them do what is expected.
