    Summary

    People have told each other stories since time immemorial, whether through the word of mouth, written word, or visual art. The prevalence of libraries and databases alike — repositories of the lucky few stories saved from the march of time — stand testament to our infatuation with storytelling over the ages. The sheer variety of formats for storytelling, from books to videogames to films, give further credence to this love of ours.

    But what if one day, those stories became a little more real? What if one day, humanity began drowning in its vast, unfathomable imagination?

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This work follows the experiences of a few ( lucky / unlucky ) individuals as they navigate a world grappling with a phenomenon that drags more and more people into humanity’s stories.

    Summary

    Of all the people Tenzou can pick out of the hat shortbread cookies box, it had to be the math teacher that he’s only been stupidly attracted to since he was hired as the art teacher. This is Tenzou’s first gift exchange. Everyone is already tittering and giggling at the little slips of paper they picked from the box. Some are even laughing their asses off – Genma the physics teacher, Raidou the chemistry teacher, Gai the P.E teacher.

    While Tenzou just… woodenly stares at the name he picked out of the butter biscuit box.

    In a sudden swell of distress, he grabs his old military teammate and… well, friend works too— to the side of the staff break room and in a most conspiratorial whisper, says, “Senpai, help me.”

    Summary

    So.

    There is love.

    There is dependency from both parties that may just be an addiction. Like heroin but just for each other – or well, it is an addiction for Iruka anyway. He's not sure about Tobirama.

    And this, Iruka thinks, is an addiction that might end all things

    When you go into severe withdrawal, you do tend to try to get that blissful high in any way possible. Or you start trying to find ways to get that high. Therein lies the problem with long distance relationships.

    But the reality is… long distance is still long distance.

    Sooner or later, something is going to give.

    Summary

    Tenzou stares at the email with one eye barely open.

    Aaaaaand stares some more.

    A little more.

    And then he’s sitting up sharply in bed. In his haste in said action of snapping awake, he all but throws Iruka off him, who (poor guy) ends up smacking against the wall and whimpering awake quite unhappily - to be fair, who wouldn’t? The whole sympathy and guilt response is delayed because Tenzou drops his phone between his legs, scrubs both eyes with hands, picks it up again and reads the email that had pinged him awake just seconds ago.

    Summary

    Quinn wasn’t used to this and he was starting to think there was nothing he could do or say to get himself out of this one.

    Tony was convinced that the universe was conspiring against them and he was fine with that so long as he got to flip the bird when everything was said and done.

    And Gibbs didn’t believe in coincidences.

    Summary

    Tobirama frowns at his phone, staring at the call that finally disconnects after heavy static. 

    In a way, worry is fear. Tobirama isn’t always the kind to gravitate towards fear if it is foolish and unfounded. He knows Iruka has been having a rough time, terrified of losing his employment that he’s worked so hard to maintain, worried that he’d be blamed for something he took part in unknowingly. Over the course of two weeks, Tobirama has watched Iruka’s complexion go from sallow to waxy, the bags under his eyes sinking deeper and darker. And if that wasn’t enough, the cut of his jawline has gotten sharper.

    Tobirama tries to call Iruka again only for his phone to switch to the service network’s automated message that the person cannot be reached.

    Tobirama sends a text, waiting for Iruka to see it.

    Ten minutes in, Iruka doesn’t. 

    Another call and Tobirama still gets the service network’s automated message.

    Something uncomfortable twists in Tobirama’s chest.
