''Guide Me Home'' is an ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' Fanfic written by Qwi-Xux that has gained popularity in the fandom for... [[SturgeonsLaw actually being good]].

Essentially, it's an [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse What Happened To All Those Mice,]] HurtComfortFic that follows [[FanficFuel Princess Ursa]] during all three books and is completely {{Canon}} compliant (well, until ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' and the comic-book continuations came out, but that was two years later and so can be forgiven). Ursa has been living in the Earth Kingdom and secretly helping LaResistance. When she discovers a Fire Nation spy amongst the Earth Kingdom underground, she is forced to flee and is rescued by Chief Hakoda and his crew.

Ursa and the crew (especially Hakoda) eventually grow closer. Of course, they don't know she's Fire Nation...

!!Provides Examples Of:

* ApologizesALot: Ursa. Hakoda lampshades it frequently.
* ArrangedMarriage:
** Ursa and Ozai.
** There is also a nameless Northern Water Tribe couple who get married. That one could possibly be a PerfectlyArrangedMarriage. They are "very much in love".
* BadassCrew: The Southern Water Tribe warriors.
* BigDamnHeroes: When Ursa is abducted she is rescued by [[spoiler: Toph]].
* BittersweetEnding: The war is over, [[spoiler: Hakoda and Ursa are together and Zuko has a mother again... but Azula is damaged almost beyond repair.]]
* BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce: [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Ursa cooks a Fire Nation dish for the crew]]. In her defense, she did warn them.
* BrokenBird:
** Ursa, at first.
** Azula, even more so.
* DomesticAbuser: Like anyone needed another reason to hate Ozai.
* DeadpanSnarker: It's a Water Tribe tradition apparently... but Mai's only line in the entire fic cements her position as Avatar's quintessential DeadpanSnarker.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Ursa, sometimes. She has a tendency to shut off her emotions when she feels that showing them would make her vulnerable.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler: Toph.]]
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: "I don't know who you two think you're kidding... but it's sure not us."
* ElsewhereFic
* FlashbackNightmare: Ursa has many... to the point where she actually finds it "refreshing" to have a normal nightmare.
* FlatWhat: Qwi-Xux manages to turn this trope into a TearJerker.
-->'''Hakoda:''' [[spoiler: With outside help from my son... and yours.]]
-->'''Ursa:''' [[FlatWhat What?]]
* ForegoneConclusion: Ursa goes to Ba Sing Se to find Zuko and Azula and get them to end the occupation. That'll work.
* FreudianExcuse: Katara and Azula in spades. They're getting better.
* GroinAttack: While teaching Ursa how to fight, Hakoda pins her against the wall and accidently puts his hand over her scar. She panics, a GroinAttack ensues and Ursa is absolutely mortified afterwards. Yes, that is an actual ''[[TearJerker tear jerker]]'' example of this trope.
* HatesBeingTouched: Ursa, at first.
* HappilyMarried:
** Mikko.
** Also, Mila and [[spoiler:Ran]], later on.
* HeroicBSOD: Ursa has one when she finds Zuko's wanted poster...[[TearJerker and sees his scar.]]
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Ursa is filled with guilt and shame at the start of the fic despite her work for the underground.
* ItsPersonal: After Hakoda finds out [[spoiler: that Ursa was married to Ozai]], the war becomes even more personal for him.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Poor Ornu.]]
* LaResistance: Ursa is part of one at the beginning, and it seems that [[spoiler: the Order of the White Lotus fills this role more than it did in the cartoon.]]
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Ursa eventually develops this type of relationship with most of the Water Tribe men; it's particularly strong with Mikko.
* MamaBear: Guess.
* TheMole: [[spoiler: Lots, of course, since this story is about an underground spy network. Special mention goes to Ran, an Order initiate operating from within the Fire Navy who helps Ursa and Hakoda escape from Zhao.]]
* MundaneUtility: At one point, Ran uses is firebending to make toast for The Duke.
* PowerOfTrust: [[spoiler: How Ursa finally gets through to Azula.]]
* PapaWolf: Hakoda. The phrase [[PapaWolf Papa]] [[BearsAreBadNews Polar Bear]] is actually used to descibe him.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Ursa delivers one to Ozai. At this point the readers are cheering for her.
* RescueRomance
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan
* TookALevelInBadass: Ursa.
* TortureAlwaysWorks: Averted. The red spider-fly venom is nasty but unreliable.
* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: Hakoda offers Ursa his blanket, claiming to be used to the cold. Ursa decides to take a third option and they end up sharing.
* TalkingTheMonsterToDeath: [[spoiler: Ursa to Azula.]]
* TrueCompanions: The Water Tribe men.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: This fic seems to exist to explain what happened to the mice, including Ursa, of course, Hakoda at various points, and also [[spoiler: Longshot, Smellerbee, everyone else who split up from the Gaang at the beginning of "The Southern Raiders," and a few other people who showed up once and never appeared again.]]
