Ha ha, it has been a while since I wrote a Jet/Zuko story, and since I was sick last week, I thought I would indulge myself shamefully. I must warn you, though, this story is all about cute old men
! Which, of course, is actually more of a delightful treat than something people need to be warned about.
Ha ha, special thanks to armistice_day
for participating in the silly conversation that spawned this idea.
was nice enough to draw a little illustration for the fic, so I'll post it here. (She also suggested that I add more kissing, and I did my best!) ( Cute old men! )Title:
The One ExceptionFandom:
Avatar: The Last Airbender (AU)Pairing:
In this alternate universe, Jet never saw Iroh Firebend his tea, so he didn't fight Zuko in the teashop, was not captured by the Dai Li, and did not die. Katara never saw Zuko at the Jasmine Dragon, so Azula didn't realize he was there, and Zuko never joined Azula. Instead, when Ba Sing Se was invaded, Zuko joined forces with Jet. And now--it's fifty years later.( It was an ideal summer afternoon, warm and drowsy, the leaves a deep green and the golden sunlight filtering through them, dappling the forest floor. )
