    Summary

    ba sing se burns around them, flames licking supernaturally high among houses made of cheap wood and dust. if zuko breathes deep enough he can smell his father’s fire, the bitter scent that always came with his rage. 

    he is crying but the air is so hot that his tears evaporate as they leave clean tracks down his ash-striped face, steam rising into the air for just a moment. next to him, sokka stretches out on the roof, bad leg carefully crossed over his other one. he stares up at the sky like he’s moongazing, but zuko knows without looking that a canopy of smoke hangs overhead and blocks out any light that could bleed through. the stars won’t watch over ba sing se tonight.

    Summary

    “What do I tell her when she asks about him?”
    Katara reaches forward, her fingertips pressing Zuko’s eyes shut.
    “We tell her everything,” she whispers, and Sokka falls apart.

    Summary

    [“Morning, sweetheart.”

    Sokka’s gaze stays clouded, like he hasn’t even heard. Zuko sighs, gently running his hand along Sokka’s temple.

    So, it’s going to be one of those days, then.]

    or: "forever" is a pretty word. it was never theirs to keep

    Summary

    “What?” Zuko asks, as Sokka continues to stare at him with mounting dread. His eyes follow Sokka’s, down toward his abdomen, where a dark stain is blossoming across his stomach far more quickly than liquid should be leaving a body.

     

    Zuko is hurt. Inspired by this fanart by hi-raethia.
