Characters: Zuko
Summary: For the first time, Zuko fights his sister on equal ground

On the Field of Battle

Despite his regret over the fact that it had come to this, Zuko felt exhilarated as he dueled his sister for the crown and throne of his nation and the fate of the world. He was matching her blow for blow, meeting her every move. He had gotten hints of this when he had fought her at the Boiling Rock, but Sokka had also been involved in that battle, helping him. Unlike that fight, this one was one-on-one, with no need to worry about protecting anyone else. With the power of the comet thrumming in his blood, he was finally meeting his sister as an equal on the field of battle.

Summary: Zuko finally learns how Azula found him in Ba Sing Se

Not Anymore

Team Avatar, Mai, and Ty Lee were relaxing together after dinner on the day after Zuko's coronation, not really talking about much of anything, when Zuko surprised everyone with a question.

"Mai," he said, "I'm not sure why I never asked you this earlier, but how did Azula find out that Uncle and I were in Ba Sing Se?"

Mai cast a surreptious glance at Katara, then smirked wickedly and said, "You mean Katara never told you?"

"N- Katara?" Zuko's head immediately snapped around to look at the waterbender and she shifted uncomfortably as she became the center of attention.

"I thought I was telling Suki!" Katara snapped. "I wouldn't have said anything if I had realized it was Azula before I started talking."

So my copy of The Promise Part 2 arrived a few days ago and I am majorly intrigued by what's happening. Things are setting up for what's sure to be a major showdown in the third part. I know we all know that the issue is resolved by turning the colonies into the United Republic, but I'm really curious as to how they arrive at that solution.

Also, even though I'm a Maikonite, I am very, very proud of what Mai does in this volume. She stands up for herself and tells Zuko that since he isn't treating her as an equal partner in their relationship, she's leaving.

I've seen a bunch of the people on my Friends list doing it, so I'm going to give it a shot as well. Since I only have eight fics, however, I'm just going to cover the top five. Also, I'm using the hit count from AO3, since that site actually allows you to sort your fics by hit count.

On to the fics... )

So my copy of The Promise Part 1 arrived Tuesday evening, and it is awesome! I think I've read it through something like 15 times already. I can't wait for Part 2 to come out in May.

Characters: June, Zuko
Summary: June never wanted to take another job from the Fire Nation prince again

Unwelcome Trouble

After the disastrous job she had taken from the Fire Nation prince, June was not expecting to see him again and she certainly wasn't going to take another job from him. So when he showed up at her favorite tavern asking for help in finding the Avatar—again—she brushed him off. That lasted right up until he asked, "Does the end of the world sound like more fun?"

Freezing momentarily, she slowly sat up straighter and put down her cup. "What do you mean by that?" she asked him.

Taking a deep breath, he answered her. "I mean," he said, "that Sozin's Comet is returning the day after tomorrow and my father is planning on using its power to burn the entire Earth Kingdom to the ground. If we can't find Aang before then, everyone is going to be in deep trouble."

"All right," she said, getting out of her chair, "I'll help you. And under the circumstances, I'll do it for free, since I doubt you have any money with you." Walking over to the prince, she got right up in his face and said, "But let's get one thing straight. If nothing happens the day after tomorrow, you are going to be in very deep trouble with me, Prince Zuko."

Characters: Ursa, Zuko
Summary: Ursa is overwhelmed by her reunion with Zuko

Dizzying

When Ursa saw Zuko for the first time in six and half years, she was left dizzy by the rush of emotions that flooded through her. She was deliriously happy. She was sad. She was amazed by the changes in him. She was relieved that he was alive. She was angered by the scar. Hugging him close, tears streaming down both their cheeks, she reveled in the fact that he was right there, in front of her, happy and whole and safe.

When she finally got her emotions under control, she pulled away from him slightly so she could look at him. "I am so happy to see you again," she said. "I missed you every day and I never stopped thinking of you."
