    Summary

    “No shit,” Toph replies and Zuko chuckles at that.

    “I feel like you swear a lot more than most twelve year olds should,” he says.

    “Well, I feel like you’re much more angsty than your average teenager.”

    A pause. And then another small laugh, “You got me there.”

    OR

    Growing up, Toph never had any siblings. Zuko doesn't have a good relationship with the one he does have.
    Together, they discover in each other what they were missing.

    Summary

    They gravitated towards Zuko whenever the temperature dipped even slightly. At night, he often woke to someone pulling their bedroll towards him, or slipping under his arm, or turning over in their sleep and colliding with his shoulder.

    It alarmed him, at first. It had never been a good thing when someone woke him in the dead of the night.

    It was strange, then, that he was on the run without Uncle, officially a traitor to his homeland, and for the first time since his mother left, he woke in the night sandwiched between bodies, feeling safe.

    Summary

    When Azula is nine, she becomes an only child. She hears the Fire Lord call for Zuko's life, and in the morning, her mother and brother are gone. Azula may be young, but she isn't naive. She knows what happened to them.

    Which makes it all the more surprising when Azula tracks the Avatar down and fights his group of peasant friends, only to find herself staring into an eerily familiar face.

    Summary

    “I’m so proud of you, my nephew.” Uncle cups Zuko’s face in his lined hand. The gesture is so tender, his palm so warm, that Zuko has to take a fortifying breath against the sudden swell of emotion in his chest.

    “I want to be a good leader, Uncle,” Zuko says. “I want to look after my people.”

    “You will,” Uncle says. “You are, nephew.”

     

    In a new era of peace, Zuko works to be a very different Fire Lord than his forefathers. Based on this tumblr post.

    Summary

    Obito thought quickly. "They're part of a... club... for babysitters."

    "A club," said Kakashi, flat.

    "Yep. A... babysitter's club."

    "I see," said Kakashi, who clearly didn't see at all.

    "Yeah, the clouds on the coats are supposed to be a soothing visual for kids?" Obito said, as he decided to dig himself deeper.

    "In red and black."

    "Okay, the color scheme could maybe stand to be changed," Obito conceded. He heard Konan snort from underneath the table.

    He glanced briefly at Hidan, who was now shaking his shoulders, and the entire curtain, laughing at Obito.
