    Summary

    What if Azula had been born a few years later? Allowing her to be four years younger than Zuko?
    What if the life-changing Agni Kai had happened a few years later?
    What if Zuko and Azula were actually close and loving siblings?
    What if everyone was three years older than what was expected when the Avatar would return?
    What if Zuko had a change of heart earlier on?
    And what if even the smallest detail could change the flame of fate?

    If the Fire Priests are right, then it's no surprise that the Fire Spirit has turned its back on us once again, Fire Lord Zuko. We need to go all the way and purge our country of people like your sister. A year has passed, and she has not shown any desire to change.

    Summary

    Prince Zuko long knew that his Father never loved him. Ever since his Mother left, her words returned to him every night since it happened; “Never forget who you are”. Those words echoed in his mind in the War Room, and in the moments he refused to fight his Father.

    Now banished, Zuko has no intention of finding the Avatar. No, he’s done all he can to fulfill his Uncle’s dream of running a tea shop, all while he silently prays to Agni above…

    Inspired by a tumblr post by CaptainKirt on Tumblr: https://captainkirkk.tumblr.com/post/184055844267/logo-comics-captainkirkk-au-where-zuko
    But of course, as fans of me know, I can’t just take my source material and NOT make the main characters extreme badasses.

    Summary

    "It is always an honour to watch destiny unfold.”

    Annoyed, she said, “This has nothing to do with destiny, Uncle. This was all our hard work.”

    “Ah, but just as we cannot control the skies and seas, sometimes we cannot control the path our lives take.”

    Azula nodded in acknowledgement, then shot back, “But do the tides command this ship, Uncle, or do I?”

    Uncle smiled, “Point made. Lead on, my niece. But be wary of any incoming storms.”

    For a moment, the world was still, and something tense settled on her shoulders. But she shook it off.

    She had the Avatar, and soon she’d have the North.

    ---

    Azula, former Princess of the Fire Nation, left the Palace three years ago in order to build up an alliance and take her father down, once and for all. But the world is changing - the Avatar's arrival is both a blessing and a curse, and with him comes a risk she might not be willing to take. Meanwhile, in a Nation more fragmented than ever, Zuko will do everything to cut off his weakness and folllow Ozai's orders - but he doesn't know if he can kill Azula.

    Summary

    “Hello there!” The kid’s head shot up, their body freezing. Big eyes staring back at him. Well, one eye actually. The other one was still pulled fairly closed, the side of their face covered in a heck of a burn scar. How does a kid get a scar like that?

    “Do you live close to here? If you don’t, it looks like rain, I don’t mind giving you a ride if-“ The kid had already run off. In the opposite direction. And into the woods.

    Because a strange man in a minivan had pulled up and asked where they live and offered to give them a ride, stellar work there Hakoda.

    At least the kid had some survival instincts.

     

    Zuko needs a new dad, and Hakoda volunteers. Some scenes spanning Zuko's old life, new life, and beyond

    Summary

    Crown Prince Zuko discovers his bending when he is five and his sister is three, and she’s the first person he tells, juggling a flame while she admires its beauty. When he shows the rest of his family, his mother’s chopsticks clatter to the table, and when Zuko looks to his father, his eyes are wide with shock.

    His grandfather speaks first, the head of the table, and approval runs thick through his tone: “Well, look at that. A true prodigy, wouldn’t you agree, Ozai?”

    “Indeed,” he hums.

    //

    (Princess Azula won’t summon her first flame—a guttering, timid thing—until she’s seven.)

    //

    Or, in a world where Zuko is the prodigy and Azula is the one banished, destiny shifts accordingly.

    Summary

    It was as he was staring at the stranger in his kitchen that his hand decided to stop doing hand things and drop his keys. The set clattered to the floor jangling all the way down, alerting the stranger of his presence. Quickly, Zuko snatched them off the floor just in time to see the man turn, a grin spreading from ear to ear on his face.

     

    He was covered in flour, sugar, was that...egg? In his hair? It occurred to Zuko as he took in the sight of the mess coated man that his entire kitchen was a mess, decorated wall to wall in miscellaneous baking ingredients. No counter had been spared, no cupboard untouched, the place needed either crime scene tape or a wet floor sign, Zuko wasn’t sure which. He shifted his attention back to the strange man after surveying the extent of the damage, the intrusive urge to commit murder suddenly present in his mind once again.

    Katara's brother comes to visit unannounced, but...wait since when did Katara have a brother? and more importantly, since when did Katara have an insanely hot brother?

    Summary

    Things Azula is surprised by:
    - her father's death at Zuko's hands (however supposedly inadvertent)

    Things Azula is not surprised by:
    - Zuko's complete and utter lack of a plan afterwards

    (Zuko's aim on the Day of Black Sun is a little off. Ozai gets struck by his own lightning. Azula grudgingly takes care of the rest.)

    Summary

    Katara hates heat. She probably hates it more than most; not that she doesn’t have a good reason.

    Zuko, on the other hand, radiates heat from his very core.

    Stupid Firebender.

    Summary

    The moment was here. He just had to seize it.

    Uncle looked back at him slightly, then looked away.

    Zuko couldn’t pretend that it didn't hurt.

    He gritted his teeth, scrunching his face up.

    He had to do this.

    He had to.

    He couldn’t not.

    “...Uncle…”
