    Summary

    After two years of continuously sending letters to Put Your Hands Up Radio, Katsuki's turn finally arrives.

    "From Pen name: Kacchan-san. Deku, how do you apologize to a friend?"

    The DJ also happens to be said person who he wants to rekindle with. The same person who doesn't want to reconnect because apparently, there's this rule wherein you can't be friends with someone and be in love at the same time.

    Or the one wherein Katsuki is confused because what the... why is he singing a love song?

    Summary

    Starting from an altered version of the “Love is a Battlefield” comic where it takes place just before Zuko and Sokka leave for the Boiling Rock instead of while they’re gone, this fic explores what would have happened if Zuko intervened on Katara’s behalf during Aang’s explosion at her. Aang is forced to confront the fact Katara doesn’t love him, the Gaang reacts to Aang having given up the Avatar state for Katara, Aang decides to try and find Guru Pathik once again to help him get his head on straight, and while Aang is gone Katara and Zuko search for the man who killed her mother and grow quite close, much to their surprise.

    Summary

    Sometimes, Zuko dreams that he is a girl he's never met at the bottom of the world. Behind closed eyelids, Katara wanders the halls of a gold and crimson palace on unfamiliar feet.

    She can’t pinpoint when it began.

    He thinks it began the night a fire blazed across the sky.

    Neither can say when they realized they were never dreaming.

    Summary

    "In the distance a cavehopper sings into the darkness, oblivious to all that transpired tonight, and she envies its freedom. She taps her fingers against her chest but every other inch of her is still, like a pond on a windless day. ‘What do you mean?’

    ‘I can’t seem to get people to love me.’”

    --

    “It hits her then, why she was confused and upset when he saved her from Azula’s wrath. She’s so used to everyone expecting something in return—a kiss, a declaration of love, her forgiveness, the assumption she’ll take care of them or go along with their plans—that she’s been waiting for him to disappoint her in ways she’s used to. Except he doesn’t.

    And Katara also realizes she was never upset at him, not really. She was just upset he showed her all the ways everyone’s taken her compassion and maturity for granted. He saw her drowning in the weight of expectations before she even realized it herself, and for that she’s forever grateful.”

    Katara learns to grow up through falling in love with Zuko. Set immediately after the final Agni Kai.

    --
