A/N: You’ll have to forgive me now. I read your prompt and immediately thought of the song Summer Lovin’ from Grease and things completely took off from there…


Summer Lovin’: A Zutara High School AU

Zuko made it a point to jump out of the car the second his sister put it in park.

“Stop moping and move on with your life!” Azula shouted after him. “It’s your senior year!”

Zuko didn’t bother to dignify any of that with a response. It was the official start of a new school year, and he had every intention of actually following that advice. Only, it didn’t count as advice since he had planned to do just that way before Azula ever said it.

He nodded to his sister’s friends as he passed them by, hardly noticing the way they barely spared a glance at Azula’s sleek red car before choosing to follow him instead.

“Hey, Zuko!” Ty Lee greeted, her light brown braid bouncing as she popped up by his shoulder. “How was Ember Island? You look like you spent the whole summer locked away at the gym rather than the beach.”

Zuko scowled at her before remembering he was supposed to be moving on with his life. That probably meant being agreeable in a social setting and stuff.

“They had equipment down on the beach. And I wore lots of sunscreen.” He casted a pointed look at Azula’s approaching figure, hoping they’d notice how pale she still was as well.

“That sounds fun!”

“A total blast,” Mai added from Zuko’s other side, her dry tone throwing Ty Lee’s optimistic comment into sarcasm territory.

“No, I’m serious!” Ty Lee insisted. “Since it’s out in the open and at the beach, you probably got to meet a lot of interesting people.”

“Unless it was raining,” Mai pointed out.

Steam rose from his skin as he forced his body to finish the set of reps. The rain was freezing, but he didn’t care. It was the fifth fight he’d had with his father since they had started this stupid vacation and he if he didn’t work out his frustrations somehow, he was going to explode.

Once done, he stood and wiped the sand from his hands. He gave himself to the count of twenty to recover and eyed the high bar, wondering how many pull-ups he could do before forced to declare exhaustion and go home. Apparently, the number was zero, because when he jumped up to grab it, his grip slipped right off and he fell flat on his back, the wind knocked out of him.

“You’re kidding, right?” Azula demanded as she caught up with the group. “Being out at the beach while it was raining was the only way Zuko made any friends at all this summer.”

Mai pulled a face. “What? Like overly buff gymrats?”

Azula’s laughter was far too mocking for Zuko’s liking. He figured it was time to make his exit.

He didn’t even have a chance to contemplate just staying there, drowning in the weather while sprawled out on the sandy pavement before a face blocked out the rain above him. She had light brown skin, thickly braided hair, and large pale blue eyes.

“Are you okay?”

“No, our little Zuzu met a girl!”

Mermaid Zutara AU


The backs of the waves glisten with silver, frothing into white lace as they tumble over themselves and against the sand, which crunches softly under her bare toes. The water beckons her, pulls at her feet, making soft, calming shhhh noises. She is alone.

She inhales the salty scent of the ocean, lets it flow through her and fill her lungs, fill her. Her hair whips around her head, wild and free.

The smooth curve of beach is interrupted by a dark shape. Katara falters, suspicious, curious. Then she runs.

It is a man. Sideways in the sand, curled into a kind of fetal position. The lower half of his body is that of a fish. Katara’s heart leaps into her throat. A merman.

This is pretty amazing. Their characterization is even on point. Is this staying a one shot? And thanks for notifying me. :)
