    Summary

    “It’s not a plan,” he emphasizes again. “It’s never been -- I mean . . . It’s just a thought. Something to . . . I don’t know, entertain myself, I guess.”

    They both know what this is about now. There’s no pretending it’s something else. Still, Sokka can’t help how his eyes widen and his tone comes out incredulous. As much as he wants to be calm and supportive, he almost can’t believe what he’s hearing.

    In the silence that follows, Sokka stares up at the clear sky and swears on Tui and La both -- and Yue, fuck it, as blasphemous as it feels -- that Zuko is gonna get therapy after all this, even if Sokka has to drag him there himself.

    --

    Or: Zuko has a lot of demons and unhealthy coping mechanisms. Sokka stumbles across him and decides he's going to help.

    Summary

    Sokka’s breathtakingly beautiful and he’s smart and makes other people laugh. Zuko has a half-burnt face and a deaf ear. It’s not rocket science.

    Or, Zuko falls in love with the boy in his Philosophy class.

    Summary

    “You’re exhausted,” Sokka whispered. “Let me do it.”

    Zuko stared at him, trying desperately to understand. Was Sokka mocking him? “You don’t have to.”

    “I want to.”

     

    Every morning and every night, Zuko applies a salve to his scar to take care of the damaged skin. But tonight, Sokka wants to do it.

    Summary

    Right after Boiling Rock, Zuko found Sokka sprawled in his tent with a bouquet of red roses, and a ring of romantic candles, and one final rose set between his teeth. With the littlest twinge of envy, Zuko realized the entire display was for Suki.

    The point is Sokka's flirting is about as subtle as a buffalo yak. To miss it, you’d have to be a complete and utter airhead.

    Summary

    [“I just—“ Zuko begins, cuts himself off, opens his mouth to try again.

    Nothing comes out, and Sokka gives him a full-body squeeze to encourage him.

    “Maybe next time, you could, uh…”

    “Yes?”

    Rushing him does nothing but make him shut down, Sokka’s learned the hard way. Patience isn’t something that comes naturally, but it’s something that he’s learning, just like Zuko’s slowly learning to communicate.

    “Maybe next time, I want you to, uh, hold me down.”]

    Or,

    Zuko learns to use his words.
