rlly sorry if you've been asked this before, but how and in what order do you think (if he tells them at all) zuko might tell the gaang how he got his facial scar??? (like i love zutara from the bottom of my heart, but i love the idea of toph being told first, bc i am a SLUT for sibling!toko) kthanksbyeandiloveyourwriting
I’m pretty sure Zuko told Katara in the Crystal Catacombs, so she was first.
I could see him telling Toph second, kind of by accident. Like they are off doing whatever two dorks do (they likely bonded first since they have shithead parents to talk about), and Zuko says something about a scar and Toph’s like WUT. So Zuko awkwardly explains and Toph’s like “shit, dude.” and punches his shoulder and that’s all the two really need.
After that, I think he’d tell Aang, who I imagine would have a very emotional response. He’d be very sensitive to comments like “do you need some ice for that burn?” and scold Sokka every time he says something insensitive like that. Zuko isn’t sure how to feel about Aang’s protectiveness because no one’s really stood up for him before, but he decides he likes it.
Sokka and Suki would be last, probably after a rhetorical question from Sokka about why Aang is suddenly such a warrior for burn victims.
Outside of the Gaang, Hakoda would be the only other one to find out. I see him and Zuko having a very close bond.
