I may have watched this 10 times already

In 1938 a radio broadcast of H.G. Wellsโ€™ โ€˜War of the Worldsโ€™ caused public hysteria, as some believed we were really under attack by aliens from another world.

Almost 80 years later, we again succomb to irrational fears and hysteria over alien invaders, only this time the microphone is in the hands of our own president. The โ€˜invadersโ€™ are people who are simply seeking the same American Dream that many generations of immigrants have also sought and fought for.

Strangely, the public seems to largely ignore the actual efforts by a foreign government to create chaos and unrest and to usurp democracy in the free world. The real invasion of our American values and security is called a fake threat by the very leaders who are sworn to protect this nation.

Got Zutara fic recs?

I’d direct you to @kaf-kaf-kaf cuz she’s got the good stuff, but here’s some of my faves:

one shots

please (don’t) meet me under the mistletoe by akaiiko

“I have a plan. It’s a plan that’s kind of like invading Russia in winter. But it’s a plan.” Zuko finds the love of his life while hiding under a buffet table at his mother’s Christmas party and it’s not a complete disaster. [Zutara; Modern AU; Zutara Month 2016] [Rated T]

Here We Are by HiddenEye

“Zuko, my sister Katara. Katara, my roommate Zuko.” She blinks, the familiarity of the name hums in her bones as she stares at him. But then, she snaps herself out of her stupor by mentally shaking her head, realising she’s been standing there looking like an idiot that Zuko probably thinks she’s being weird. But, he doesn’t seem to notice as he blinks at her too. Zutara. [Rated T]

Even So by lewilder

A hundred years after Avatar Roku stops the Fire Nation’s attempts to take over the world, uprisings begin again in the Fire court. After the battles, the new Fire Lord, Zuko, seeks to reaffirm old alliances and looks for a bride from the Southern Water Tribe. Zutara, AU. Oneshot. [Rated T]

Bones by sadladybug

“Hmm. In the Fire Nation we do things a little differently. Would you like me to show you?” Her heart leaps into her throat. “Something other than palm-reading?” “Yes,” his warm breath skims over her ear. “Your future may be in your hands, but your character is in your bones.” A Zutara wedding night one-shot. [Rated M]

Five by YinYangSister

Everyone thought that the prospect of them was a joke; destined only to be told in comedic plays and such. But it was real; what they had was real, and what they felt for each other was real. It’s just that the world didn’t know about it; they still wonder, even to this day, if it is better that way. [Rated T]

As If Death Itself Was Undone by archiveidiotjello

Z/K Finale AU “‘It’s not right to linger like this,’ says the Death Spirit. ‘I don’t want to leave her,’ Zuko says. 'They never do.’” After being struck by Azula’s lighting, Zuko rejects death. [Rated T]

Smother by Like A Dove

Zuko and Katara both have a new talent, a talent that hides their feelings and smothers their secrets. Post-series. Response to Zutara Week 2011 prompt “Secret”. [Rated T]

multichapter

I Was Not Magnificent by Like A Dove

When Zuko first meets the waterbender with the scars, he’s fascinated by her. His fascination quickly turns into something much more. Soon Zuko will have to confront his greatest enemy - himself. AU. [Rated M]

Tempest in a Teacup by AkaVertigo

Fate puts Katara in the Fire Nation to grow up in the company of a Dragon, a prince, and a lot of good tea. AU Zutara…of a sort. [Rated T]
