A Zukaang fic for betterberavenclaw.
It’s a full moon, tonight, the perverse circle hanging too brightly in the sky. The palace is quiet. The day has been a hot one, and it has been a struggle to keep the palace somewhat livable. Everyone has succumbed to sleeping now, chasing away the weariness of the day and welcoming the cool breeze of the night to their bones. Everyone lies pacific between their bed sheets.
All but one.
The Fire Lord is outside, in a hideaway archway that he goes to when he doesn’t want anyone to see him. And he’s crying, he’s crying, and it’s stupid and selfish and horrible but he really can’t seem to stop. He’s crying, the salty tears streaking down his face and reminding him with every slide of liquid over skin that he is weak, he should be tougher.
And yet he can’t seem to stop.
It’s been a long day, a rough day, a day filled with responsibilities that should not be undertaken by a boy of eighteen. Usually at eighteen in the Fire Nation, a boy would know how to fight and would be expected to do so for his family and his nation. Nothing more, nothing less. No democracy, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
But this was different now. Everything was different. This was the new age, and he was part of its becoming. One parent of a new harmony of nations.
Of course, it just so happened that the other parent was the flightiest living being on this planet.
I am so desperate to meet zuko as his older self .-.
I’m just sitting here like “so where’s Zuko? Is this the Zuko episode? Zuko’s in this episode right?”

Evil and good are always at war inside you, Zuko. It is your nature, your legacy. But there is a bright side. What happened generations ago can be resolved now, by you. Because of your legacy, you alone can cleanse the sins of our family, and the Fire Nation. Born in you along with all the strife is the power to restore balance to the world.
