Fandom Category: Avatar: the Last Airbender
Pairing: Zuko/Katara
Fic Title: The Sparrowkeet Series
Author: audreyii-fic
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): M (for lemons and general darkness)
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: technically yes, though all that's really left is the epilogues(s?)

Why This Must Be Read: Ba Sing Se has fallen and Katara has been captured by the Fire Nation; a more adult take on the potential progression of S3. This fic started as a one-shot that expanded to an entire rewrite of s3, and it is about as far from your average capture-fic as you can get. It takes several perspectives over the course of it's interconnected one-shots, and handles them all with a sort of grace and style that is really just stunning. The progression of relationships and the alterations to the plot are subtle and believable, and no characters are torn down to prop up others--everyone is flawed and failable, and so much greater for it. This fic is basically everything I could have wanted from a Zutara AU and I cannot recommend it enough.

Fic Title: In the Same Candlelight
Author: Like A Dove

Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Humor/Romance
WIP?: nope

Why This Must Be Read: In a world where there is no war, Zuko and Katara spend their summers together. Growing up is messy, embarrassing, and at times sad, but they think it might be okay because they have each other. I adore Zuko-and-Katara-know-each-other-as-kids fics, and this one is just excellent; I especially love that when they're kids, they actually act/speak/feel like kids, rather than miniature adults. Also does changing POVs. There's a side order of Sokka/Azula too.

Fic Title: Catching Shadows
Author: sharkflip

Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: incomplete, and unfortunately it hasn't been updated in a while

Why This Must Be Read: Zuko searches for a wolf to find a dragon while Katara struggles to understand the powers within her. Sharkflip does ridiculously in-depth and elaborate AUs, so basically anything of hers I would recommend. This one takes the supernatural bent, which is nifty.

Fic Title: The Places We Call Home
Author: Liafic
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance
WIP?: complete

Why This Must Be Read: She has grown used to the cold again, she realises, and wonders whether she is capable of blending into the teashops and transit trains of Ba Sing Se like she used to. Zuko asks Katara to help him find his mother. Fairly short chaptered fic, with just enough angst to make the sweetness that much sweeter.
