    Summary

    He hears the phrase send him back more often than his own name, these days. It’d make for a halfway-decent moniker—Theo “Send Him Back” Raeken—if the words didn’t make him go dull-eyed and lead-tongued. Names shouldn’t do that, he thinks. 

    But Theo, in all of his haggard glory, survives the slippery threats of a permanent return to the underground prison by sheer will. So, somewhere inside of him there must be a resilient being, he thinks. Somewhere in the hollowness of him, between the skin and bones and contraband-heart pumping nothing but despondency through his veins, there is something that wants him to live. Or maybe it just doesn't know how to let him die.

    “The trick to perfect hot chocolate,” says Alfred as Cass watches him measure the honey from her seat on the counter next to him, “is to always make sure that there is enough salt to balance the sweet. There you are, dear girl. Enjoy.”

    Cass, Damian, and a winter afternoon.

    Summary

    His mother was his sun.

    And all throughout, even as months became years, as he grew to be hailed one of the Twin Jades of Gusu Lan, as he became widely known in the cultivation world and beyond as the Han-Guang-Jun, the Light-Bearer, due to the numerous instances of courage and kindness, fierce rains and storms lashed within his heart, buried under the cold touch of ice.

    He did not feel warm enough.

    Until the sun rose again in his life, fiercer than before, blinding him with the intensity of a thousand lightning bolts, under the night sky of Gusu, accompanied by sonorous laughter and two casks of Emperor’s Smile.

    Summary

    If Mikasa could have looked back at any moment in her life prior to that particular, captivating summertime, she wouldn't have found out what love poems really meant. But now, they were whispering to her everywhere: in the sultry breeze, in hidden caresses and subtle looks of sensuality, inside raging eyes and in Annie's breath when she blew dandelions over the river's water they bathed in a few times.

    At times, it feels like there are two different sets of expectations, and Tahomaru is never certain of which ones he should be following, like being trapped between two worlds, but not fully at home in either.

    Summary

    The pain and despair basketball had brought into his life were ultimately insignificant - and an improvement from the frightening numbness and the detachment from the world that he had felt all throughout his earlier childhood.

    His passion wasn’t basketball – it was a means to an end for him, and the end was being noticed and cared for by others. It could be called a childish desire at best, and a sickening attention-seeking disorder at worst.

    Tetsuya did not really care what it was called, as long as the end goal was achieved.

    -----------

    or, a darker take on why Kuroko Tetsuya didn't quit basketball after Teiko; and the origin of his passion for the sport

    [Podfic]

    “Su-gege is sick,” said Fei Liu, appearing without warning in his quarters late into the hour of the hog.

    Summary

    Fate is cruel, my little sun. I once thought the cruelty of the world was a lesson you needed to learn to become my equal.

    Now, when I see the phantoms that haunt your dark eyes, I wish I could erase the ways I have wronged you.

    You have ruled at my side for decades, and now Time has claimed the last of your companions.

    Summary

    One of the first things Essek noticed about Caleb Widogast was his hands. And how could he not? The human introduced himself—clad in slave garbs—as a hero to the Dynasty, a Luxon Beacon clutched in his hands. The same beacon Essek had stolen for the Assembly. It had taken all of his Dynasty training to keep his own disbelief and abject horror off his face, so he focused his gaze not on the beacon, his potential downfall, and on the Empire wizard bold enough, stupid enough, to betray his whole country for the chance at life.

    Summary

    He goes north, always north, until the spruce trees are dusted with snow and the air burns in his lungs.
    The snow swallows all sound, no railroads, no wagons, just Pepper’s breathing and the jingle of her tack. The sky is smaller up here, cut and framed by the sharp edges of the mountains, and as they go on and on, it disappears altogether.
