Just the Girl by Hotspur
warnings: char death
Zuko & Toph (future Zuko x Toph?). Toph separates from the gaang after a spat and ends up attaching herself to one disgruntled banished prince and his uncle; with Toph’s help, Zuko finally begins reaching his full potential.
The adventure spawned from this split is fascinating, to say the least, and Hotspur manages to deliver on-spot characterizations on top of well-written prose and engaging plot. I fell in love with this explosive pairing right from the start, and this is perhaps the best multi-chap fic I’ve found for it, so far.
