The Avatar_500 Participation Meme

We're just over a day away from the deadline at avatar_500 for prompt 49, Lake, and we have only one entry.  So, to prove that I am not above using bribery, for anybody who writes and posts a fill for this round to the community before the deadline (Saturday, April 7, 10:00 PM, MDT), I will drabble up an answer to any one Avatar: the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra prompt they give me here at this post.  This includes all of my existing AUs (excepting Ice Flows Through) as well as unrelated prompts.  Or, I will make a 400x600 pixel banner for any Avatar: the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra fanfic (excepting  NC-17) written by the requester that they ask me to.  (Please provide a link).  Furthermore, after the deadline, I will do the same thing for anybody who writes and posts to the community a fill for the next biweekly prompt, Return.  And yes, that means if you post a fic for each, you get two requests.

A few rules-

No Ty Zula
No NC-17
No incest
No ships where one party is much older or younger than the other(s)
No rape

Information on posting can be found here.

I'm not asking for much, just 100 to 500 words.  Good luck.

Metaphorical genies and Acts of Providence
Takes place in the same universe as "Banner" and "The Spinning Gates", so that means Avatar!Zuko.

Act of Providence

After generations of Fire Lords failed to find you, now the Universe delivers you to me as an act of providence.
-Ozai, book three, chapter twenty, "Into the Inferno"

"Admiral Zhao's dispatch, my lord," the soldier panted, dropping to his knees.

Ozai jerked his head up, sending water cascading out of the basin the servants were using to wash his hair. "You aren't going to live very long, soldier, if you don't learn not to barge in on people with the power to incinerate you where you stand!"

"But my lord," the soldier said, trying unsuccessfully to keep his voice from breaking, letting his head sink down until he was speaking into the carpet. "The commander has identified the Avatar."

"I don't care which of the Water brats that my son managed to pick up is the Avatar!" The Firelord's bathing robe slid down off one shoulder, and he yanked his hand away from the man polishing his nails to shove it back into place. "If you think that's important enough to interrupt, instead of leaving the dispatch with my secretary..." He trailed off menacingly.

The soldier swallowed. "But my lord, it's your son."

"What about him?" Ozai hissed. There was no reason for his traitorous little spawn to not be sailing home as fast as his obsolete wreck of a warship would take him unless Iroh had managed to get his hooks in, filling his head with treason for two and a half years. He never should have let his brother go with him.

The soldier lifted his head slightly, so the words would come out clearly. "The Avatar is Prince Zuko."

Ozai's face froze as his mind whirred. "Is he sure?"

"The admiral himself saw the prince airbending, my lord, there is no doubt."

Ozai tried to picture his weak, talentless son as the great spirit of the world. Suddenly the reason his son hadn't returned home with his prize was obvious. He could see it, the boy terrified that the imprisonment they had planned for the Avatar before would fall on his head, afraid that his countrymen would lock him away to safeguard the conquest.

Ozai didn't know why the boy should be afraid when he had to know how useful he would be, but then Zuko had never had vision.

His lips curled up as he shooed the soldier away. he had a letter to write, and a weakling son to reassure. Zuko was coming home.

The Avatar was his own loyal son. If that wasn't the universe smiling down on the Fire Nation's conquest, then nothing was.

Dude's a diva. What is the male equivalent of a diva anyway?

Ozai didn't know why the boy should be afraid...this is after the burned and banished incident, right?

Ozai is like "You are interfering with the creation of my perfect hair, man!"

Not our most self-aware person, Ozai.

Ha. A man can't be expected to strike terror into the hearts of one and all with split ends, I suppose.
