Why This Must Be Read: Budapest. In the harshest of ways full of all those unsaid but completely felt things. A very mature and highly likely canonical possibility of how their relationship functions between partner and friend and how it could shift into more. Quite fluid and wonderfully abound with inner struggle manifesting itself in action and dialogue. It's like a punch to the face and then your assailant finds the nicest piece of meat to keep the swelling down.

Why This Must Be Read: Slave!fic is a fandom trope, but every so often a fic comes along that makes a tired old plot line new again. Enslaved is one of those! Zuko is the slave for Katara. And I have to laugh at how Katara decides to make use of him! My amusement at the premise kept my interest until the plot sucked me in, and now I'm wondering just how things are going to work out. I don't think the author will sell out for a happily ever after, I really don't. Oh yes, and the characters are in their mid to late 20s, which is also a welcome change from the Zutara norm.
