Avatar: The Last Airbender
  • Somewhere in Between Set in the future. After the end of the war, the Fire Nation is in crisis and to mend the broken land, Katara is put in a position she never expected to be in: Fire Lady. Zutara. Complete.
  • The Chase It didn't matter how much information Ozai was not willing to give up about Ursa, Zuko would find other ways. Three years later, he hoped that finally, maybe, this time, his search could end. Zutara. Complete.
  • Finding My Way Home Amidst the first major crises after the war, Katara tries to keep a promise she made five years ago. Along the way, she finds that home isn't quite where she thought it was. Part 2 of The Chase. Zutara. Complete.
  • Another Brother It was a mission of revenge. There weren't supposed to be any survivors, but Chief Hakoda couldn't bring himself to kill the Fire Nation boy. Against his better judgment, he brought him home. A Zuko joins the Water Tribe story. Zutara. WIP.
  • The Black Games Once bound by ice, now bound by fire. 12 provinces. 24 tributes. 1 winner. Let the games begin. Zutara. Complete.
  • The Rise of One It began with twelve. Now it's up to one. Sequel to The Black Games.  Zutara. WIP.
  • The Slow Path Eight years after the fall of Ozai, Aang returns to the friends he left behind. Taang. Zutara. Sukka. Complete.
  • The Long Game The group stands divided over upheaval in the Fire Nation as something dark and ancient rises from the Spirit World. Sequel to The Slow Path. Taang. Zutara. Sukka. WIP.
  • What I Don't Like About You A prince struggles to change his destiny. An unforgiving waterbender tries to see past the betrayal. Fate has decreed them to be enemies from the start but the heart cares not for the laws of the universe. Zutara. Complete.
  • Unrequited Love unrequited is the same as love returned, for love is measured by its fullness and its purity, not by its acceptance. - A collection of Zutara drabbles and ficlets. Zutara. Complete. Note: I wasn't a fan of drabbles until I read this collection.  The title warned me not to get too attached, but I ended up cheering for Zuko to whisk Katara off her feet anyway.
  • The Fifth Column Katara's been kidnapped by the Fifth Column, a clandestine group that plots to overthrow Fire Lord Zuko's regime. What the society doesn't know is that Zuko's been infiltrating them for years. Can he find Katara? Will he be able to save her and himself? Zutara. WIP. Note: The prison sexytimes made me uncomfortable--I don't get why though, considering dubcon doesn't squick me at all.  And if it was Jetko, I wouldn't be bothered.  I guess it's been a long time since I read het smut?  But other than that, the plot is so captivating and interesting.  I just can't wait for another update.
  • Half Asleep Five years after the Hundred-Year War, Fire Lord Zuko is hit with an assassin's dart, and falls into a coma from which he cannot wake. A week passes, and his prognosis is grim. But Katara could swear she hears him in her dreams... Zutara. Complete. Note: Even though Zuko is hardly communicating in this story, and it's mostly about Katara, its still a wonderful read.  I love how Aang is not just pushed aside, and you actually see the repercussions of his break-up with Katara.
  • Ozai's Vengeance Twelve years after the final battle, Zuko summons Katara to heal the victims of an epidemic spreading throughout the Fire Nation. Zutara. Complete.
  • His Majesty Prefers Blue A year after the war's end, the gaang returns to the Fire Nation for a week of diplomatic meetings. There, they hear rumors about a vigilante who wears a blue mask and Katara finds herself digging deeper into his identity and motives. Blue/Zutara Lemons. Zutara. Complete.
  • And if Tomorrow 'And in today, walks tomorrow' - When the very ties of Destiny are at risk and a hidden source is threatening everything they know, will Zuko and Katara be able to work together to save all they've ever loved or will Destiny unravel before their very eyes. Zutara. Complete.
  • Tempest in a Teacup Fate puts Katara in the Fire Nation to grow up in the company of a Dragon, a prince, and a lot of good tea. Zutara. Complete. Note: Tearbending.  No one warned me how heartbreaking this story is.  Currently my favorite Zutara fic. 
  • Fire and Ice In a world where the Fire Nation reigns supreme, where the Water Tribes and Earth Kingdom are fragments of once great civilizations, a world where the feared Fire Lord Zuko presides over everything - can a lone waterbender open his heart to peace? Zutara. Complete.
  • Sun and Moon Katara and Zuko struggle with their feelings for one another in a world ravaged by war.  Is there a chance for peace, or will the war rage on, destroying Katara and Zuko from the inside out? Sequel to Fire and Ice. Zutara. Complete.
  • Stalking Zuko Katara has developed a new hobby.  At the Western Air Temple, she takes to stalking Zuko.  Much silliness and shanigans follow. Zutara. WIP
  • Sacrifices Takes place post-canon series.  The war is over, and everyone's doing just fine... Until tragedy strikes, it is revealed that in fact things are far from fine, and people have to make hard choices.  Starts with canon relationships, but will slowly evolve to Zutara. WIP.
  • Dangerous Ground Ready for a Zutara fic filled with action, romance, and a new plot?  Then come, tread on Dangerous Ground and see what happens when water and fire collide.  Can the two exist peacefully, or will they both be destroyed?  The fate of the world may hang on it... Zutara. Complete.
  • Each Other In a world where Ozai wins, the Avatar is dead, their families are gone, all Katara and Zuko have is each other.  Living in the South Pole they create a life together until they are forced back to the Fire Nation. Zutara. Complete.
  • Fire Behind Blue Eyes Zuko's temper is legendary, but his prisoner is beating him at his own game.  What will happen when he is outmatched by a stupid waterbender? Zutara. Complete.
