    Summary

    “I’m going to go practice some firebending forms,” Zuko says stiffly, running a hand through the tangles in his hair. “Tell Aang to join me if he wants to once he wakes up.” Gold eyes dart up to where Aang had strung up a makeshift hammock and was still sleeping soundly, snoring like a buffalo yak.

    “Alright,” Sokka says, watching as he walks out without another word, evidently having reverted back into his usual brooding self. “Have fun!” He calls after Zuko loudly, which he means to be sarcastic, but comes out painfully, embarrassingly sincere. His face burns, and as soon as Zuko passes out of sight into the the temple, Katara turns to him, leveling him with a Look.

    “You like him.” She says, and it’s not a question.

    Summary

    [Zuko has been awake for thirty-six terrible, horrible hours.

    And now it’s nearly three am, the apartment is empty, and Zuko is so tired that he feels dangerously close to crying. It’d be easier if Sokka were here, but he’s out with some buddies from class. Zuko had been invited too, but declined for sleep-related reasons, and in retrospect he wishes that he’d gone out instead. He’d undoubtedly still be fairly miserable, but at least he wouldn’t be alone.

    Ugh. The world is awful. Everything is awful.

    Zuko wants a lobotomy.]

    Or,

    Zuko and Sokka have an arrangement.

    Summary

    [Zuko calls at three in the morning and says, tears in his voice and rage through his teeth, “I want to run away.”

    It’s Sokka’s turn to carry the brain cell in his household but he doesn’t waste a second before he’s saying, “Tell me when and where—I’m coming too.”]

    Summary

    [“I just—“ Zuko begins, cuts himself off, opens his mouth to try again.

    Nothing comes out, and Sokka gives him a full-body squeeze to encourage him.

    “Maybe next time, you could, uh…”

    “Yes?”

    Rushing him does nothing but make him shut down, Sokka’s learned the hard way. Patience isn’t something that comes naturally, but it’s something that he’s learning, just like Zuko’s slowly learning to communicate.

    “Maybe next time, I want you to, uh, hold me down.”]

    Or,

    Zuko learns to use his words.
