When Katara and Zuko both nearly die at the hands of Azula, they find themselves struggling to heal from the physical and emotional trauma they've experienced, so when the opportunity to escape for a while and try to find Zuko's mother presents itself, they seize it. But traveling together isn't quite the same when it's just the two of them - not after everything that's happened - and they find that as they struggle to redefine themselves, they gravitate towards each other for support.
Whatever destiny has in store for them, they will have to rely on each other if they want to make it through.
Scar Tissue rewrite (with major changes).
