    Summary

    "The one-time general grits his teeth, but Ozai has made his implied meaning clear, and there are things more important than an old man’s pride at stake here. So Iroh closes his eyes, breathes. When he manages to calm his demeanor, he slowly sinks into a low prostration, can feel his brother’s smirk on him as he touches his forehead to the cold tile floor. 'Forgive me, Your Majesty.'”

    There are some things that matter more than Iroh's pride. Zuko is one of them.

    Iroh and Ozai, after the Agni Kai.

    Zuko wishes the others had never found out.

    Summary

    AU: Lu Ten never died at Ba Sing Se, and Fire Lord Iroh rules the nation with an iron fist. Zuko is merely the son of the second prince, overlooked by his more talented younger sister and can only dream of the day when he will be finally allowed to prove himself in battle. When Lu Ten returns, triumphant, with the Avatar and his Water Tribe companions in chains, Zuko is put in charge of their imprisonment. But he soon learns that things are not what they seem with both the child Avatar and within his own family. And soon, Zuko will have a decision to make. How much good can one overlooked nephew to the throne do?

    Summary

    ****This is an edited version of the "Sometimes" posted by me on the 27th of December in 2017. That version is bad, but I'll keep it online because I'm sentimental****

    In which Zuko opens up and is filled with love, because he deserves it goddammit.

    Includes a few f-bombs.
