    Summary

    Zuko learns from a young age that touch can be one of the most dangerous things in someone’s life.

    He learns mostly from father and his heavy hands, he also learns from Azula and her bony fingers.

    He shies away from touch, he knows better than to let himself be so open again.

    Uncle does his best, he tries and tries and tries but Zuko still can't let himself be that open again.

    Too bad Toph is determined to domesticade their newest firebending addition.

     

    or: Zuko's love language is based on touch and trust, Ozai takes away from him, Iroh intermediates his recovery and Toph gives it back.

    Summary

    “I just wanted to introduce myself. Your uncle had told me his niece had been thinking of applying to work in the gardens, so I thought I would introduce myself.” Fire Lord Zuko was awkwardly rubbing the back of his neck and a slight blush crawled up his cheeks.

    Oh my Spirits, Hana thought. Our Fire Lord is adorable.

    Or,
    5 times the palace staff were protective over their Fire Lord because they all love him to death, and 1 time they had someone else do it.

    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

    Sokka knows three (3) things:

    1. The caldera is on fire.

    2. Ozai’s really, really dead (and so is his daughter).

    3. The only one having a worse day is probably Zuko.
