#sokka x zuko


Suki, introducing herself: Hi! I’m Suki, leader of the Kyoshi Warriors.

Suki: This is my boyfriend Sokka.

Suki: And that is Sokka’s boyfriend Zuko.

Suki: And that is Zuko’s girlfriend Mai.

Suki: And that is Mai’s girlfriend Ty Lee.

Suki: Nice to meet you!


Master Pakku: It’s not natural for women to fight.

Katara: It’s not natural for someone to be as stupid as he is tall, and yet there you stand.

Sokka: Trust me, this plan’s going to work!

Katara: Fine. But if Combustion Man kills us all, I’m going to get Aang’s spirit to teach my spirit how to play the tsungi horn just so that I can annoy the heck out of your spirit.”

Sokka: I’ll just hire Zuko’s spirit to kick your spirits’s butt!

Zuko: My spirit won’t associate with your spirit.

Iroh: You are going to… kill the Moon?

Zhao: Tui made the decision to return to the physical world. If she makes herself such an available target, she can further the Fire Nation’s great destiny.

Iroh: Men mock the spirits until they need them, Zhao.

Ty Lee: Spirits, Mai, you actually look happy.

Mai, clearly smiling: Don’t be ridiculous.

Zuko, at the Agni Kai: What’s the matter today, no lightning? Afraid I’ll redirect it?

Azula: Oh, I’ll show you lightning!

Katara: Zuko, this whole ‘shoot lightning at me’ thing is starting to concern me.

Sokka: Aang, maybe the monks didn’t cover this lesson, but you do not negotiate with a powerful firebender with lightning crackling around him during Sozin’s Comet.


Sokka: Zuko, maybe your fancy tutors didn’t cover this lesson, but you do not argue with a guy who can start glowing and harness all the power and skills of his past lives at any time.

Sokka: You were early, Toph!

Toph: I was on time!

Sokka: For you, that’s early. Next time you plan to impress me give me some warning!

Toph: The animals are free, and I found you a boat. This is when a thank you would be in order.

Suki: Thank you, Toph.

Toph: Hey, no problem, Suki.

Toph: See, Sokka? That’s how the civilised folk do it.

Sokka, to Zuko, at the Boiling Rock: Well, we’ve managed to get ourselves locked into the most secure prison in the world. We’re either geniuses or the dumbest sons of bitches to ever breathe air.

Aang: We’re all gonna die!

Sokka: Well, statistically speaking, only SOME of us are going to die.

Sokka: It was a calculated risk.

Zuko: It was cross-your-fingers-and-hope-for-the-best. Believe me, I know the difference.

Sokka and Aang: *doing their spirit magic impressions, i.e. waving their arms and making vaguely creepy sounds*

Zuko: What are they doing?

Katara: Performing an ancient Spirit-summoning ritual.

Zuko: Really?

Katara: No.

Aang: Sure, I’m skinny, but I stay drier in the rain.

Sokka: How?

Aang: Less falls on me.


Sokka: You can WATERBEND.

Hakoda: Good luck hitting a skinny little Water Tribe boat, cutting through the waves and staffed by a crew of men who’ve spent their whole life dodging obstacles in boats.

Bato: I’ll quote you on that when a fireball lands in my lap.

Random Boiling Rock guard: Please, have mercy!

Suki: I like it when men beg. But this isn’t the time for it.

Chief Hakoda: How are you finding our country?

Toph: It’s a magical place. If you like ice and more ice.

Sokka, about Zuko: Would it kill him to smile every once in a while?

Katara: Very possibly.

Toph: Katara and Zuko? Far be it from me to doubt anyone’s determination to get this done, but is that really the ideal pairing?“

Sokka: Zuko knows guard procedure, and Katara can handle any guards without a noisy fight. Your job is to keep them from killing each other.

Toph: Because I’m definitely the diplomat of the the group.

Sokka: Aang is the diplomat of the group. But he’s busy, so you get to do it.

Jet: What’s the easiest way to steal a man’s money?

Smellerbee: Knife to the throat?

Pipsqueak: Bludgeon to the head?

Sneers: Poison in his cup?

Tea Shop Lee, the new recruit: You’re all horrible.

Jet: Have any of you wondered what I did with all the gold we got from the Dai Li?

Smellerbee: Weapons?

Pipqueak: Ships?

The Duke: Bombs?

Sneers: Political bribes?

Smellerbee, to Lee: This is where you tell us how awful we are.

Lee: They all seem like practical choices.

Zuko: Has anyone noticed that every nation in the world is looking for me, mad at me, or wants to kill me?

Toph: So?

Zuko: Well, usually it’s just half the nations.

Suki: I am grateful that you’re alive.

Sokka: Suki, you’re better than meat and boomerangs!

Suki: Let’s not say things we don’t mean, Boomerang Guy.

Sokka: You’re stupid about a lot of things, Zuko, but you are not stupid. And if I ever hear you call yourself a moron again, I’m going to tell Katara you tried to kiss Aang. With tongue.

Zuko: She’ll never believe it.

Sokka: Then I’ll tell Aang you tried to kiss Katara. With tongue.

Sokka: Don’t worry, Gran-Gran. People firebend at each other all the time in the Fire Nation. It’s basically a handshake.

Toph: Who’d deny a poor blind girl her precious meteor bracelet?

Sokka: If the blind girl is you, then anyone with sense.

Toph: When people see a little blind girl walking down the street, what do they feel?

Toph: They feel pity. Now, what do they think when they see me coming?

Zuko: They think they’d better cross the street.

Toph: You’re not weak because of your scar. You’re weak because you’re afraid of people seeing your scar and knowing what it means. You’re letting shame decide who you are.

Sokka: Do you really have a flying ship?

The Mechanist: No.

Sokka: Oh.

The Mechanist: I have several.

Sokka: Take me with you.

Ty Lee, to post-redemption Azula: He was going to break my legs. Would you have come for me then, Azula? When I couldn’t walk a tightrope or chi block a squad of benders? When I wasn’t useful anymore?

Azula: I would come for you.

Azula: I would come for you. And if I couldn’t walk, I’d crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we’d fight our way out together—with fire blazing and lightning crackling and fingers blocking. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting.

Zuko: Sokka, I’ve thought about this-

Sokka: Thought of me? Late at night? What was I wearing?


Zuko: I’ve thought about your diplomatic skills.

Zuko: Do you know what Ozai’s problem is?

Aang: No honor?

Katara: Rotten parenting skills?

Sokka: Receding hairline?

Zuko: Katara—

Katara: Don’t you start in on me.

Zuko: It will all work out. Let Azula do what she does best.

Katara: She’s horrible.

Zuko: But effective. Being angry at Azula for being ruthless is like being angry at a fire for being hot. You know what she is.

Hakoda, meeting Master Pakku: Why doesn’t the Northern Water Tribe let girls fight?

Master Pakku: They don’t want to fight.

Hakoda: How do you know? Have you ever asked one?

Pakku: Northern Water Tribe women are to be venerated, protected.

Hakoda: That’s probably a wise policy.

Pakku: I agree, seeing as-

Hakoda: Think how embarrassing it would be for you when you got trounced by a little girl.

Hakoda: Like my daughter.

Zuko: We were fools.

Sokka: You were children. Was there no one to protect you?

Zuko: Was there anyone to protect you?

Sokka: My father. He went to war so that we might have a better life. My mother. She died protecting Katara. They would have done anything to keep us safe.

Sokka: We … uh … we were having a disagreement.

Gran-Gran: I can see that. I have been very patient with all of this, Sokka, but I am at my limit. I want you down here before I count ten or I will tan your hide so you don’t sit for two weeks.

Toph, snickering: You are in so much trouble.

Sokka: Katara, Toph conned a rich man into paying us off because he thought he’d killed her with his carriage.

Toph: I am going to turn your teeth inside out.

Sokka: That is physically impossible.

Toph: I just invented metalbending. Do you really want to argue with me?

after Ba Sing Se falls, except Zuko goes with the Gaang:

Sokka: So, other than Zuko having an unplanned family reunion, what the hell happened out there?

Katara: Let’s see. Aang was shot with lightning and fell twenty stories.

Toph: We put a serious hole in the Crystal Catacombs of Ba Sing Se.

Zuko: Katara can bring back the dead.

some random Fire Nation official: Why does your weak king send an ancient loony to do his bidding?

Bumi: I suppose he thought my good looks would give me the advantage. Not a concern where you’re from, I take it?

Fire Nation official: Preening, ridiculous peacock. You stink of dirt and poverty.

Bumi, sniffing the air: I’m amazed you can detect anything over the reek of ashes and inbreeding.

and this, my friends, is how sokka entered a permanent coma

Here’s the list of some of my favorite zukka fics, in no particular order – Enjoy!


I’ll tabletop you any day

By Yuu_chi (12,245 words / 1 chapter / Rated M)

Sokka’s the high school drop-out and closet nerd working at his sister’s coffee shop - Zuko is the gorgeous rich guy who comes in three times a week and orders cinnamon tea. Sokka may or may not have his entire schedule memorized.

Coffee shop AU! This is a classic and most people have probably already read it, but I couldn’t help adding it to mine because it’s just that good. It’s probably my favorite zukka fic ever, if not my favorite fic in general. It’s so cute and simple and the pining is unbearable!!

Unchained Melody

By AvacadoLove (63,860 words / 18+ chapters / Rated T)

Sokka is a man of science, and science says ghosts aren’t real. So, he can’t be dead… Right?

Too bad science can’t explain why the only person who can see or hear him is Prince Angry Jerk.

Where Sokka becomes a ghost and only Zuko can hear him. I could go on and on about how much I love this fic – I wanted to cry, laugh, and then scream all in rapid succession. I’ve never felt such a roller-coaster of emotions from a fic alone, and I read it all at once (no regrets).

It starts off a little bit slow but it gets soooo good. The author also has a lot more zukka fics that are probably just as good, I’m planning on reading them myself!

(Do you take this jerk to be) your one and only

By jatersade (44,273 words / 8+ chapters / Rated T)

Under the leadership of Fire Lord Iroh, the Fire Nation has made every attempt to restore peace and make amends for the harm they inflicted during the Seventy-Year War. Their newest proposal is a literal proposal: a marriage to unite the Fire Nation and the Water Tribes.

The Fire Nation offers Prince Zuko’s hand.

The Water Tribes offer Princess Yue’s.

Sokka is apparently the only person in the world who has a problem with any of this.

Arranged marriage AU, but with a twist! This one is heart-wrenching and i’m so insanely invested in it. Not only is the pining so, so, so cute (Sokka is SO oblivious oh my god) but the sense of world-building and the overall plot is amazing.

The usual reasons

By Wildgoosery (9,887 words / 1 chapter / Rated T)

Sokka would swear, later on, that it was completely innocent when it started. 

Set in canon while they were at the Western Air Temple. The interactions between Sokka and Zuko in this fic are SO GOOD! And… who doesn’t love zukka sword duels?

The perfect distraction

By Dracze (2,766 words / 1 chapter / Rated T)

An accidental encounter with Prince Zuko forces Sokka to discover that desperate times call for desperate measures. Oh, and he’s not telling that story to anyone.

Where Zuko is trying to capture Sokka and Sokka thinks of the perfect way to distract him. 

Five times Zuko wanted to die (and one time he didn’t)

By JustAboutMidnight (8,132 words / 1 chapter / Rated T)

There’s no summary for this one, but basically Sokka is a watchmaker and Zuko gets his watch fixed and falls for him and it’s so cute!

Two bros, sitting in a traffic jam, 2 cars apart cause they’re not gay

By logarhythm (9,988 words / 1 chapter / Rated T)

A three-hour traffic jam is bad enough by itself without that rude, nasty jerk in the next lane.

This fic is just so cute and Sokka/Zuko’s interactions are so good. The whole fic just feels so… sunny omg,,, and the flirting is THE BEST.


By haicrescendo (6,915 words / 1 chapter / Rated E)

Here’s the thing.

People look at Zuko and see hard edges and a hard face and a hard personality and that’s about it. Zuko looks at people and sees line and shape and color and that’s about it.

When he looks at Sokka, all he wants to do is paint.

What a goddamned hipster cliche.

Artist!Zuko and Barista!Sokka and it’s sooo cute!! I didn’t think smut could be so fluffy but this fic proved me wrong.

From the president’s desk

By ahhhnorealnamesallowed (6,600 words / 1 chapter / Rated E)

Zuko is worried that his life is going to come crashing down around his ears (again), so he gets Sokka to help him relieve some stress before an important event.

Pure. Smut. BDSM and hotness.

You know I talk too much

By shadowhokage (2,306 words / 1 chapter / Rated G)

Halloween is a stupid holiday for children that only weirdos celebrate after the age of twelve. Zuko will have no part of it.

Until he does.

Vampire fangs & spin-the-bottle all in a short and sweet oneshot! A fun, easy read.

In Which Sokka Is Maybe Bisexual But Definitely a Dumbass

By alittleduck (14,871 words / 1 chapter / Rated G)

The plan: get Zuko a boyfriend

The execution: poor

The success: none to speak of

Set after the war – Sokka knows Zuko’s gay and has a crush but is so, so, SO painfully oblivious to who it is. I love this fic so much.

Emergency Boyfriend

By lesmiserabol (1,244 words / 1 chapter / Rated G)

“Can you be my boyfriend?”

Somehow, Sokka manages to not choke on his tea. He slowly puts his cup down as he looks across the table at the seat that had been empty just moments before but is now occupied with a panicked looking employee. This is his first time visiting the Jasmine Dragon, but if he’s going to be ambushed by attractive people every time he comes by, he might just become a regular.

Okay, this fic is super short and SUPER CUTE!!


Hope you guys enjoy these as much as I did!

Just some au zukka content for anyone who’s hungry for it

This remains the best show I’ve ever seen, despite many attempts to find one. Love these cuties.

“Thanks for coming with me,” Sokka said, leaning against the balcony.

“Did I have a choice?” Zuko asked, wincing at how harsh it sounded. 

Sokka just scoffed. “Uh, yeah. Nobody can make you do anything, you’re the Fire Lord. There’s like, two people on this planet who can tell you what to do and you’d listen— the Avatar and your uncle.” 

“Three,” Zuko corrected.

“Three people who can make me do stuff I don’t want to do,” Zuko said, softly. “The Avatar, my uncle, and you.”


Approaching the 10th anniversary of his coronation, Fire Lord Zuko hopes that by the time they return to the capital he’ll have another thing to celebrate: his engagement to Sokka.

My only zukka headcanon:

Sokka is the first person to make Zuko laugh so hard he breaths fire

Sokka: Have you ever seen us as maybe… more than friends?

Zuko: Yes!!! I’m so glad you’ve asked this!!!


Zuko: I’ve totally seen us as dragons!Let me find the drawings!!!

Sokka: Zuko i’m trying to ask you out
