    Summary

    !!! Please read all the tags before continuing !!!

     

    There were nights when they’d share lines or opiates together, taking it in turns to shoot each other up in whatever veins they could find that hadn’t collapsed.

    Pass out together on his bed intertwined and forget the misery that was surrounding them for the night, a misery neither of them could escape.

    Guilt neither of them could escape.

    Why were they still alive?

    Summary

    When a group of college students decided to film a documentary about the Library Ghost, an urban legend that's been speading on the internet, they never expected there to be any reality to their story, even if it's not what they expected. Their original plans seem to fall apart as they get dragged deeper and deeper into the story of a man who seemed to be just as much a ghost alive as dead.

    Summary

    Vulnerability. It was what had made Eiji’s photos of Ash so compelling, how he’d drawn softness from something that seemed so impenetrably hard. With Ash, he’d been able to uncover gentleness and joy, because those were the kinds of things Ash chose to hide. The things that made him human. Sing’s secrets were human too, but far more primal.

    Eiji asks Sing if he can take his photo, but doing so reveals more than Sing had intended.

    Summary

    There was a mysterious portrait in Eiji’s room that Sing nor Ash had ever been able to understand.

    It was a painting of an elegant bird, with brilliant gold plumage and a long, sweeping tail. Beneath its feet lay a nest filled with a myriad of gems and gold coins, gleaming obscenely even as they were engulfed in flames. The bird appeared to be flying from this opulent nest, flames flickering from its tail as it ascended towards the heavens. Nestled in the clouds was a brilliant emerald-hued dragon, scales gleaming as it appeared to extend a claw towards the bird, as if in invitation.

    It also happened to be the one piece of art in their entire apartment that Eiji refused to explain.

    Summary

    Eiji was always a bit more chilled in the winter months, a little more quiet, a touch more withdrawn. He said the cold didn’t agree with him, but Sing could read the meaning beneath that statement. Despite the progress he’d made, he’d accumulated a thick layer of ice around himself to keep any further suffering from coming through. He carried it with him, like his own personal winter that had yet to end.

    Sing tries to get Eiji out of the apartment for an evening. But they are definitely, totally, 100% not on a date.

    Summary

    “Mister, why are you crying?”

    The soft voice pierced through the moment like a bullet train, leaving Eiji feeling rushed and panicked. He whipped his head down to where the words had come from, finding himself in the presence of those green eyes.

    His breath hitched.

    He couldn’t have been more than 10.

    “Mister, why are you crying?” the little boy repeated, green eyes still shimmering like the ones in Eiji’s memories. It almost overpowered the redness that clung at the edges of his vision.

    ---

    Fifteen years after Ash died, Eiji finally returns to the library. Overcome by grief and sorrow, he is surprised by a pair of painfully familiar green eyes.

    Summary

    " Eiji trembled, extracting those shots stolen from the cruelty of their fate.
    They were happy, they were young. And above all they couldn't imagine what awaited them.
    Reliving those moments was like digging deeper wounds into him. But he was there.
    Ash lived in those photographs, they were what remained of him.
    Memories held so dearly for fear they might fade one day.
    Eiji clutched at those fragments, thinking that dying would be less painful.

    Maybe it was the best solution at all. "

    Summary

    Eiji is smart.

    Maybe not Ash level smart, or even Yut-Lung or Sing, but he’s smart. He knows he’s at least average, if not above. He just never much liked the academic path, choosing to learn about cooking, plants, photography. Things that made him feel alive.

    He never realizes that he’s taken up a new course until he’s done it.

    Learning Sing is no different.

    Summary

    Alex doesn't know why Sing asked him to drive them to Cape Cod, yet he accepted the invitation. How could he not, when the person who made sure Ash's memory lives on will be there, when the person who made the memory of his boss so clear in his mind will be there.

    Alex doesn't know why Sing asked this of him, yet he accepted. After all, it feels like the least he could do.

    Summary

    Because Sing does not have a place inside their perfect little world. There’s only Ash and Eiji, and Sing was an outsider. He has accepted that long ago. He has accepted that since Ash came back from the dead, since Sing gave back Eiji to where he belonged, to his only home. Sing shouldn’t have bought that plane ticket on a whim just because he misses them so much that it hurts. Because he knew his place.
