Zatara, Kataang?

Almost done with season 1 of Avatar: the Last Airbender, and though I don't know any spoilers from future seasons (LET'S KEEP IT THAT WAY), I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that there are a lot of hardcore Zuko/Katara shippers out there. The enemy coupling isn't my usual style, but I see the attraction in this case, partly because Zuko is actually complex and might have an interesting arc by the end (hope so), and partly because Aang is *twelve*. And all these people are cartoons. So that makes the whole shipping thing feel weird to me too. But I'm sure these fics exist.

Oh they are totally out there. I've heard there are some really good ones... but they are not my cup of tea. I much prefer Sokka/Zuko, I'll read anything about them even if it's only friendship. My top three are:

Brothers in Arms - In a palace in Ba Sing Se, one man awaits his death, one boy – his torture, and another – his destiny. An Iroh, Sokka and Zuko adventure.

Fragile - When Sokka comes back injured after going hunting with Zuko, Katara realizes her brother is more breakable than he seems.

Nightmares - Who do you go to when you have nightmares, Sokka?" An innocent question, right?

The second two are only one-shots but the first is a multi-chapter.

That would be a pairing (even as friendship) with a lot of complexity too, yeah. I suppose I'd best wait till I'm done with the series before diving into fanfic, but I'll be forming theories along the way as to what was written out there. :) And really curious what Zuko's arc ends up like in canon.

You'll have to let us know your final thoughts when you get to the end! :)

I'm sure I will! Handy to have a series the whole family can watch.
