    Summary

    Mary Bennet knows her role in life: to honour her parents, to be a good Christian, and to accept her lot with faith in the Lord's divine plan. If she sometimes chafes at that role, she hopes she is suitably penitent afterwards.

    One thing she is clear on, after being told so often; Mary's lot is not to marry as her sisters have.

    And if she wonders why, then, she has been sent to London with Kitty... well, her mother never was known for great depths of logic.

    Summary

    The timeless classic "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen updated and retold for the 21st century.
    Liz Bennet lives with her parents and four sisters in the resort town of Meryton, where they run The Longbourn Inn. Liz, the second eldest Bennet sister, finds herself facing a busy summer season, and then two semesters out of school as she tries to decide what she should do for her future career.
    But then the affable Chip Bingley, his standoffish sisters, and his surly best friend, Fitzwilliam Darcy, rent a lake house for the summer, changing the Bennet family's lives in ways none of them could foresee.

    Summary

    Father keeps on telling Zuko that he's acting without honor, but a lot of the time he won't explain what exactly Zuko is doing wrong, and what he should do to be more honorable. So, Zuko decides to do some research and ask around about how he should behave honorably.

    Or: the servants of the Fire Lord's palace develop a soft spot for Zuko, Zuko confuses everyone around him with his particular brand of shout-y, aggressive politeness, and somehow Zuko accidentally ends up leading a revolution.

    Summary

    Prince Zuko wasn't able to escape the Northern Water Tribe after the disastrous conclusion to the Siege of the North. However, Aang is more than happy to invite his old pal, the Blue Spirit, to join him and his friends on the first leg of their journey to the Earth Kingdom.

    (An AU where Aang never learned the true identity of the Blue Spirit, Zuko is desperate, and Spirits enjoy interfering in the lives of mortals)

    Summary

    “Blessed Spirit, we thank you for the gift of this child’s life. We are forever in your debt.” The whole village is kneeling now, even the tiniest toddlers flopped down on their stomachs doing their best approximation of a bow. “Please, won’t you give us a name to call you? We would like to properly express our gratitude.”

    Oh.

    Well shit.

    (Where Zuko saves a little Earth Kingdom girl from drowning, the villagers think he's a Spirit, build him a shrine, and long story short, a fake story about the Blue Spirit who dances with dragons suddenly becomes very real.)
