I'm late in coming to this series, but I'm very glad it was recommended to me.  Some fic:


Book Four: Air: The Legend Continues
, by aka Arashi
"Water, Earth, Fire, Air. We believed we'd saved the world by defeating Ozai and ending the war. But as the dust settled, new conflicts arose. And that was just the beginning..."  [A decent continuation fic!  I wasn't sure such a thing existed.]

Pawns, by Rhiannon B
"In the months following the end of the war, Mai is forced to deal with a missing princess, a string of grisly murders, Firelord Zuko, and soiled diapers. At least it's not boring."  [An AU story, set in a world where Mai betrays Azula for Zuko's sake only at the very last minute.  Their relationship is thus a bit more... tense (though no less charged) than usual.  I was told that the author hasn't yet abandoned this fic, though updates are few and far between.  Perhaps some reviews would help her along?]

In His Shoes, by AvocadoLove
"In order to fully understand a man, you must first walk a mile in his shoes. Sokka and Zuko are going to find that out the hard way."  [Hasn't been updated in a long while, though I can hope.]


Hide and Seek, by Swiss Army Knife
"The gaang hones theirs skills through a game of Hide and Seek. Sokka and Zuko are accidentally well-suited to working together."

After the War - Love, by icybright
"They've made an interesting family for themselves."

An Auspicious Beginning, by DJNS
"Zuko and Mai's wedding does not go smoothly."  [Yes, Mai/Zuko, but with a focus on the rest of the gang, too.]

Male Bonding, by rawles and ali_wildgoose
"As much as she intensely dislikes it, Katara understands why Zuko had to join them. What she doesn't understand is why he and Sokka have to spend every waking moment in each other's company."


Just Like Old Times, by ali_wildgoose
"Finding ways to stay busy in a world with no more wars to fight."

The Tall Ships, by alligatorade
"Sometimes the tides turn, and former lovers have to move on with their lives. But then again, sometimes we can learn to use the turning tides to our own advantage."

Mai/Zuko (my clear favorite):

Sleight of Hand, by ali_wildgoose
"Azula always wins, even when she doesn't."  [Tiny Mai!  Tiny Zuko!]

Preoccupation, by bad_remedy
"Zuko had spent seventeen years of his life not thinking all that much about kissing girls."

Little Thickness of the Coin, by zoesque
"Five unrealized scenarios in which Zuko plans to inquire after Mai’s possible betrothal, and one that is."

Life on Either Side, by rawles
"Progression through division."

Spilled in Beside Her, by rawles
"Mai and Zuko get drunk and Mai has no one to blame but herself."

Outre Couture, by May Flyer
"Mai loathed her Kyoshi Warrior uniform."

Hot Gingerbread and Dynamite, by JoJoDancer
"Love and marriage walk hand in hand, but not necessarily side by side, and certainly not in that order: not for these two."

Imperfect, part 1, part 2, part 3;
Necessary Research;
Lights in the Distance; and
Nearly With You, all by ali_wildgoose
"It's been years since they last met, and many things have changed...some more so than others, and none in the way she expected."  [A fantastic set of stories, set in a universe where things go slightly differently after Ba Sing Se.]


Without a Fight and Never Give Up, by suzukiblu
"An AU take on Zuko’s banishment.  Thirteen years old and alone in the Earth Kingdom, thrown out of his life and family and destiny with the burn on his face still raw and new, Zuko does not want to go on."
