My second Avatar fic! Anyway, this takes place in modern-day Virginia. I'm keeping everyone's original names, though.

Summary: Zuko, Mai, Ty Lee, Azxula, Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Toph all go on a road trip to Richmond, Virginia for an athletics marathon. But when their car breaks down, can they get there in time?

Genres: Humor/Action/Romance/Adventure/Drama/Friendshiop/Family/Hurt/Comfort/Angst/Ok, I'm done. XD

Pairings include Maiko, Kataang, Tokka, Jetzula, and Tyru (The last two in later chapters. I know Jet died, but I brought him back! XD That's why it's AU, right?)

I do not own Avatar. If I did, Zuko wouldn't have betrayed Iroh. ;)


West Jr./Sr. High School in Norfolk, Virginia has many different colorful characters. They were separated into groups as well. One group of friends was the strangest.

Aang, thirteen years oled and in eighth grade; Katara, Mai, Azula, and Ty Lee- fifteen and in ninth grade; Sokka, sixteen and in tenth grade; and Zuko, seventeen and in eleventh grade, along with their thirteen year old blind friend Toph (who goes to school for the blind just down the street from WJSHS) were the strangest group of friends yet. Each have their own different interests, yet they all balance each other out.

Aang was on the track team, Katara was on the swim team, both Zuko and Sokka were on the fencing team, Ty Lee was on the cheer squad, Mai was on the archery team, and Azula was student body president.

Now, not everybody is totally friendly with each other. Katara and Azula got along the least. It was the same for Aang and Zuko. Sokka and Katara were brother and sister, so ae Zuko and Azula.

Well, enough of that crap. On with the story! Katara, Mai, Ty Lee, and Azula found each other during lunch and sat at a table.

"I am so excited for the athletics marathon this Saturday!" Ty Lee was saying.

Azula nodded. "Me too. I'm giving the opening speech."

Mai sighed in obvious boredom. "I still don't get why we're doing this marathon. It's gonna be so long and boring."

"It's for charity, Mai!" Katara exclaimed, raising an eyebrow. "Besides, aren't you excited about seeing Zuko in his fencing outfit?"

Ty Lee giggled, Mai blushed. "Meh, I've seen him once, I've seen him a thousand times."

The four of them laughed. Azula took a sip of her drink and asked "So, what time are we all meeting at my house on Friday?"

"We agreed on four-o-clock." Katara answered. "It'll take a few hours to drive to Richmond."

"And Toph's coming with us, right?" Asked Ty Lee.

"Yeah. She wanted to show us some support." Katara replied.

"Well, that's nice!" Ty Lee smiled.

"Well, I better go meet my swim teammates." Katara spoke up. "We're having a meeting. Later."

"Bye." Ty Lee said. "I gotta go too. Cheer squad meeting."

Azula watched Ty Lee go, and turned back to Mai. "Well, I guess it's just you and me again."
