One For All reviews
(Part One of The Way of Tea) The general watched his niece and nephew closely. The struggle between good and evil was reborn in them; both of them. The question now was who had the power to restore balance to the world, and who had the power to destroy it. It was a question he would have to answer. And once he gave an answer, it would become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The Dragon's Out of the Bag reviews
The dragon was supposed to stay hidden until it was big enough to defend itself, but Druk didn't exactly want to stay secret for long. If anyone had to find out, at least it was just Sokka. Right?

A Foggy Day reviews
You know your prey. They are wicked people with cruel eyes and ravenous souls. They are the defeated, the villains, the ones with failed plans and broken dreams. "Again," you tell them, voice a thick mist, "I can let you try again."

Azula holds onto sanity by hairs. Literally. They break every time, and she pulls again and again and again; and no one ever offers her anything stronger.

Universal reviews
Aang and Katara were born with thousands of miles between them, a hundred years apart, and don't even share the same language, but somehow, they still manage to understand each other. After all, a smile is universal. (One-shot set in an AU where language barriers are a thing)

Flight from the Cutting-Room Floor reviews
If you've ever gotten a hold of the A:TLA unaired pilot episode, you'd know things. You'd know about how the Avatar State was reworked and how Katara almost wasn't Katara and about a certain prince's pet that never made it off the cutting-room floor.

The Mailroom reviews
What other options were there? Phone calls were risky, text messages could kill you, the Internet was a no-go and Iris messages ain't cheap. Pen, paper and a pretty reliable postal service; that's all they had. So welcome to the Mailroom.

You Crack and I Shatter reviews
"Before today, Ozai was just a faceless, vicious, tyrant; and even then, that was enough to keep us awake at night. But now, he's invincible. There's no reason to doubt it. We can't afford to think like that. I'll give you a reason. I'll make him crack. I'm sorry." Post-Comet, Oneshot.

What Do You Mean I'm Not Firelord reviews
Sozin's Comet passes the horizon, Azula's left in chains and the crown finds itself atop Zuko's rightful head. That's what happened, but not as simultaneously as you'd think. The rules of Agni Kai are quite convoluted, and the battle may be over but Zuko can't call himself victor just yet.

Revenant reviews
Zuko's fate could have diverged either way on many occasions. Under the catacombs. At the North Pole. On the day of Sozin's Comet. But when the scale tips the other way the day it all started, the day of the Agni Kai, he finds that destiny is not done with him just yet.
