zuko x katara you’re my siblings’s best friend and i absolutely hate you but pretend to be my boy/girlfriend to piss off my family au
this doesn’t fit the prompt exactly because i set it post-series, but canonically sokka and zuko are best friends, and zuko and katara used to hate each other, so… *moonwalks away*
you’re still the song on my breath
“I’m a war hero,” Katara chanted as she stomped down the Northern Water Tribe’s elegant crystal walkways. “I’m the youngest master waterbender and I helped save the world. I will not be treated like a child!”
A nearby ice sculpture rattled and then exploded from the sheer force of her ire. The shards whistled through the air, almost putting a messy end to the person coming up the path towards her. But he reacted quickly, kicking up a wall of orange flames that melted the icy projectiles… as well as the walkway.
Before any serious damage could be done, Katara doused the fire with a good blast from her water skins. She blinked at the pale face and the golden eyes that emerged through the haze of steam.
“I’m a war hero,” she repeated, still too angry to get her thoughts in order.
Zuko scratched the back of his head, looking puzzled. “I don’t think anyone’s questioning that.”
