    Summary

    Minho has never hated himself more than he does in this moment, because the first thought that crosses his mind once his eyes land on the face in front of him is please, please be the roommate, please be the roommate.

    “Thanks a lot for letting us stay here,” the taller of the two says with a smile that’s courteous, yet still seems genuine. “I’m—” not the roommate, not the roommate, Minho pleads silently “—Seungmin. It’s nice to meet you.

    Seungmin. The roommate. Minho smiles anyway, gives him a quick, polite handshake, and then turns back to who can only be his cousin’s boyfriend.

    “That makes you Jisung, then?”

    Summary

    “Try a piece of yuanyuan bread,” Lan Wangji read aloud, tracing the double gold characters for hope on the package. “Do you know what this means, Ge? I thought this was supposed to be pumpkin bread.”

    Lan Xichen laughed. “It is. But from what I have gathered, double-hope bread is any kind made with the help of the baker’s children. The handprints are his son’s.”

    Intrigued, Lan Wangji turned the loaf over and squinted at the fine print on the bottom.

    “They have a dine-in bakery in Hubei,” he noted. “Lotus Pier Bakery, run by Jiang Yanli.”

    (Or: the one where Wei Wuxian owns a bakery, and Lan Wangji falls in love at first bite.)

    Summary

    “Hey, Tommy.”

    It was that voice. The one that made Tommy shiver in his boots, the one that made him drop everything he was doing just to take a full minute to process what was being said.

    The voice that always seemed to have the need to remind him that they were superior, authoritative; they were the one that made the decisions, they were the one that got to choose, they were the one that got to control.

    It was a never-ending cycle throughout Tommy’s entire brain and nervous system.

    Summary

    Raz stares at the contraption on Agent Mentallis' desk. It was shoved near the corner, peeking out at the boy behind half a stack of leaflets and a handheld disemboweled, disassembled, and with it's wires exposed.

    It, unfinished and unpolished, hadn't been there just yesterday.

    "Hey, Otto?"

    "Yeah, kid?"

    "Are those waves?"

    Summary

    “I fucking hate him, Sapnap. Any mere sight of him—I wanna fucking rip my eyes out.”

    “He’s walking by, dude.”

    “I don’t give a fuck, let him hear me! I’ll scream it from the top of my lungs so his ears bleed and he’s begging for more, he fucking loves the attention.”

    Summary

    “It’s bullshit, right?” Takemitchy blurts out suddenly, blue eyes wide and desperate even as he hitches up his shoulders with a gasp of pain. “It’s bullshit and impossible and I’m a liar. You don’t have to — I mean you won’t—”

    “Shut up, Takemitchy,” Chifuyu says, rubbing a hand over his forehead. Takemitchy keeps looking at him like he’s waiting for Chifuyu to just up and leave, and he can’t stand it. “It’s fine. I mean, it’s not fine,” he adds when he gets an incredulous look, “and it sounds like bullshit, sure, but people who’re lying don’t sound like that. And… it may be hard to believe, but you aren’t.”

    Or, Takemichi and Chifuyu discover the seven wonders of Shibuya, tend to each other's wounds, technically do not commit any crimes, and learn how to trust each other. Not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Perhaps it was her resistance to the fae magic that oozed around the glade, perforating every tree trunk, tight against her skin. She was never susceptible. Never gave in to the tug, the constant feeling of being manipulated, twisted, pressured.
    Perhaps it was her reluctance to grasp life with both hands, comfortable instead to remain... undead. Opposing the eternal springtime.

    Perhaps that was what painted the target on her spine.

    Cleo, from green to red in the span of a week. If only her allies had watched her back.

    Summary

    We build a home
    we build a wall
    we build a nation
    that shall never fall
    with war at hand
    together we stand
    against the brutality of men

    There’s a lengthy pause. “Fun fact: strawberries are technically part of the rose family. I thought they’d be better than normal roses since they taste better.”

    Summary

    Spoilers for The Hanged Man by ellispark.

    Dean is hanged after his plans for mutiny and escape from the cult he was raised in are found out, but survives as he is discovered just in time by a park ranger with blue eyes and PTSD. He later learns that the cult's leader, his father Samuel Campbell, and his mother Deanna are actually his grandparents, and Samuel abducted him from a supermarket as a child to get back at his daughter Mary for leaving him. The seeds of revolution that Dean managed to sow before his attempted execution help Deanna and the half of the camp not loyal to Samuel escape. Reunited with both his biological families as well as finding a new one in Cas and Bobby at the Park, Dean has everything he needs to make a new beginning. Except escaping his past may not be as simple as refusing to look back at it, and though Dean might not live in an apocalypse shelter in the middle of the forest anymore, something tells him he isn't yet out of the woods.

    An analysis of complicity, and of the grey space between victimhood and monstrosity where the bystander will go to die. Basically my love letter to what is undoubtedly one of the finest thrillers i have read this year, please do check that out.

    Summary

    There is no healing, there is not ever going to be enough time to mourn for a loss you never prepared yourself for. There are only the steady gears of life moving along, creaking as the rust falls over the surface and creeping against each hidden part of yourself like a permanently staining shadow. 

    As years go by, you grow to forget. But forgetting isn’t healing.
