    Summary

    A world where the Avatar has disappeared from memory. Where Sozin’s Conquest was successful. Where the unsteady order of the empire is threatened as members of the royal family are picked off one by one and lines are slowly drawn in the sand.

    One last hope for peace forces an unlikely alliance between a homesick waterbender, a carefree Air Nomad, a runaway Earth Kingdom heiress, and the fire lord's inscrutable son. Together they must learn to shed old enmities and become the balance they seek to restore to the world.

    OR:

    The avatar has four heads.

    "Don't say it."
    "Please."
    "Don't do this to me."

    When Zuko joins the Gaang, Katara feels nothing but pure loathing and that is all she'll ever feel... right?
    It's funny how quickly things change when they fight so hard to keep them the same.

    Summary

    The Painted Lady is tilting her head back to look up at the sky, and the sight of the waves of her chestnut hair spilling over her shoulders and down her back, the sight of her graceful throat outlined in the starlight – that’s just as much a part of the skyline he knows and loves as any of the rooftops surrounding them, any of the peaks and valleys of Ba Sing Se.

    My vigilante queen, he thinks. My shadow partner. Girl of water and mist. The only person in the world who knows me.

    Or: College is hard enough without having to save the city in your spare time. And life is hard enough without a love square getting in the way.

    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.

    I don’t know the difference between not fighting and giving up. She thinks that she knows now. Maybe this. Maybe him.
