    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

    “Take my hand,” Zuko murmurs. He draws her closer, so close Katara can feel the heat radiating from his body through the fine silks they wear. “If we were truly courting, you would not be so far away.”
    “If we were truly courting, I would dunk you in that ornamental koi pond for such impudence,” Katara remarks dryly. “You do not truly believe a mere dance will be enough to convince everyone of our epic burgeoning love?”
    Zuko only smiles at her, and it’s a smile Katara has never seen — small and sharp and wicked bright, making an odd thud reverberate through her chest. “Depends on the dance.”

    _

    It’s been five years since the end of the war.
    The Fire Nation is calling for Zuko to marry. Zuko just wants to focus on fixing his country and for strangers to stop touching him like they were staking a claim.
    Katara turned down Aang's proposal a year ago, yet he and everyone else expect her to see sense and settle for her happy ending. Katara only wants to find her own path and for Aang to stop treating her like she's still his.
    A fake courtship between friends seems like the perfect solution. What could they possibly have to lose?

    Summary

    Her voice is a lullaby. A storm. Something that terrifies Zuko and astounds him and calms him. Both the cut and the balm, the song of his heart is as much of a tragedy as it is a triumph. So beautiful it’s terrible.

    Now a fugitive of his own nation, Zuko will spend the rest of his days avoiding capture on the sea. He falls in love with a siren and her song, forever searching for her in the temperamental ocean that he now calls home.

    (Pirate and siren AU. Angst and romance. Bittersweet ending.)
