    Summary

    Zuko does not notice when the Water Tribe girl first stirs. She is staring at his face — his scar — but strangely it is only when he faces her head-on that she is afraid.

    She is the first person who ever flinches at his right side instead of his left.

    He begins his interrogation at once. Uncle has dozed off, thankfully. If he knew she was awake, he would slow things down by offering tea. Still, Zuko is not a total barbarian. He thrusts the lukewarm tea in the girl’s direction. She looks around wildly, no doubt disoriented by her surroundings and Zuko presses his advantage.

    “Where is the Avatar?”

     

    A canon-divergent tale: Katara must protect the newly-found Avatar from a Fire Nation Prince, although he is not quite who she expected. But Katara has plenty of secrets of her own...

    Summary

    “Roads were made for journeys, not destinations.” ― Confucius

    One moment changes the course of history. Katara and Zuko are imprisoned by the Fire Nation Army during the Day of Black Sun, and when they escape, they find themselves adrift in the Fire Nation with no one to rely on but each other. With only six weeks before Sozin’s Comet arrives and four nations to cross, the pair must track down Katara’s allies, save the world—and learn to trust each other.

    Canon divergent from Part 2 of 'Day of Black Sun.'

    Summary

    There’s no-one shooting at them, for once, and Barry finds he misses it when he realises the alternative is a plane of snooty assholes partying every. Single. Day. The one light in an otherwise gloomy year is Lup, but even his relationship with her is complicated by this shitty plane.

    He’s been in love for forty years. He’s been putting off asking her out for half that time. They’ve been dancing around the subject for as long as they’ve known each other. He’s pretty sure things can’t get any worse, and he keeps believing that right up until they do.

    Summary

    Since wizard's daemons often settle as birds and urban legend says that elves are separated from their daemons, no one looks too closely at the fact that Taako and Lup are both single entities, missing the other halves of their hearts. They walk like people, they talk like people, and if they're hard to read because their daemons aren't fluffing up their feathers or swatting playfully with their paws, well, elves are notoriously enigmatic anyway.

    This lasts until their first death.

    All deaths on the Starblaster are strange. When Magnus first died on the animal planet, I'morko followed right after, both of their bodies dissipating into golden sparks, a strange inversion of the natural order. The pattern holds. Year after year, person and daemon alike dissipate into a fine mist of dust, knit together by the bond engine in the new plane.

    During their fifteenth year, Taako is shot through the heart with a well-aimed magic missile. Lup screams and casts one last firebolt, spell-sculpting around their bodies, before unspooling into a fine golden sand.
