    Summary

    “Sorry about that,” the voice says, and suddenly the curtain has been pushed aside, and Zuko is speechless. “What can I help you with?”
    He stares. “Um— ”
    The boy has to be around his age, he’s sure of it. He’s got the most perfect tan face Zuko has ever seen, with blue eyes so brilliant it’s hard to form words.

    or

    The college-age AU in which Sokka fixes watches, Zuko struggles through engineering, and everyone's nervous about the cute boy from the jewelry shop.

    Summary

    “I’m Zuko,” he introduces himself while taking vitals. “I’m going to be your nurse this evening.”

    “You’re not a doctor?” Sokka cocks his head.

    “Afraid not,” Zuko is on autopilot at this point; if he doesn’t hear that at least once per shift, then it isn’t a real shift.

    “Oh. That was probably an annoying thing to assume. Guy nurses are cool, too.”

    OR: Zuko is an ER nurse and becomes increasingly concerned about the handsome guy who frequents the emergency room just a touch too often.

    Summary

    Life can be pretty hard living in a city under a totalitarian regime. Between adhering to the ridiculous curfew, keeping himself from being gunned down by a passing patrolman, and paying his unnecessary tolls to the state for, say, breathing, Sokka has his hands full just getting to work. Add aiding a resistance group on top of that, and Sokka should really be getting paid for this.

    Then, one night, Sokka finds an injured patrolman collapsed in the street, who tells him with blood on his lips, “If the patrol finds me, I’m dead.”

    Summary

    The thing about strings was that if you didn’t want to see yours, or if the spirits willed it, they vanished. Maybe somewhere, deep down, Sokka didn’t want soulmates to exist at all. Life would be easier that way. Less painful.

    Sokka can't see any strings. Not even his own.

    OR

    The four nations speak different languages, but with soulmates.
