Genderswap Prompt Post
I'm experiencing a bit of writer's block on my current trio of projects, so I could use something to get the juices flowing again. So it's time for a fanfic meme...


* Each person can have one-three prompts. I may only pick one out of three given, or do all three. It depends on how they strike me.
* The prompts can range from one word to a whole situation.
* It has to be
genderswap related. What's the point otherwise? Time, place, or situation is all up to you.
* Pretty much anything goes, but if it doesn't, I'll let you know and you can prompt something else.

This post will have ten requester slots, with 9/10 filled. Each prompt will be written in the comments. Once the post is finished, there will be a complete list of each filled prompt in an upcoming post.

Go nuts.

BSOC: Big Sister on Campus [1/1]

Azula spotted them as soon as they entered the Royal Academy's library. Which wasn't exactly a notable achievement; Zuan banged down the alleyway between tables with all the grace of an earthbender, and her sister's hangers-on were a rolling avalanche of giggles.

"Hey Azula!" her sister called out, earning a reproachful glare from the librarian who guarded the off-limit stacks in the next room. "The girls and I are heading down to the beach to play some kuai ball. Want to come?"

"Keep it down, dum-dum," Azula hissed. "People are trying to study in here."

Zuan looked around the empty library.

"Azula," she said, voice full of self-righteous patience, "there's more to life than dusty old books. You've been here for four months already. Don't you think it's time you started making some friends?"

She ignored her sister's pleading look, focusing instead on adding to her handwritten notations. "I'll get right on that, Zuzu."

Her sister's friends tittered. One of them overtly whispered, "She has a nickname for you! That's darling."

Zuan said, "Lihn's sister Ty Lee is going to be there. She's in your year. Have you two met yet?"

Azula felt a hot flush creep up the nape of her neck. She hated feeling this small. Her older sister never made her feel this way back home. Here at the Academy, there was no one to watch out for her. The only people who really liked her were her teachers. The other girls who'd tried were just leeches, people who weren't good enough to make the cut for Zuan's little gang and that Azula knew were settling for the second princess available.

Bristling, Azula looked up and said, "Can't you see I'm trying to read?"

Sadness passed across Zuan's eyes. It made Azula feel angry, like she'd failed some sort of test. "Sorry. If you change your mind, we'll be down at the black sands, okay?"

Later, when she was alone in her dorm room, Azula re-read the letters her parents had sent her and tried to imagine how the palace would look like now that early winter was settling in. She missed Dad. She even missed Mom.

It wasn't fair. Her first year at the Academy wasn't supposed to be like this. All anyone cared about was Zuan this and Zuan that. The girls laughed and smiled at everything Zuzu said and the idiot ate it all up, didn't realize they only hung around her because she was Prince Ozai's heir.

Outside, Zuan and her friends were laughing as they walked out the gates on the road to the beach. Azula slammed her window shut and buried her head under her pillow.

There's nothing quite like constantly living in the shadow of your older sibling to take the piss out of you. I wasn't sure if fem!Zuko would make many friends, we never see any references to male friends in canon, but I'll chalk it up to the genderswap and the altered expectations placed on him/her.

WIP fic? I'm intrigued. But I'll wait until it's posted. If WIPs were meant to be talked about in public, they wouldn't be works in-progress.

>Zuko is not good at this friend thing.

I guess I'll give it to Azula then and say she's right that Zuan's "friends" really are just Yes Men parasites. It'd make for excellent angst once Zuan's banished. Because if there's one universal constant for Zuko in all his AU variations, it's that he must suffer. :)
