    Summary

    snake pit
    /ˈsnāk pit/
    noun
    A place of overcrowded squalor, turmoil, distress, and chaotic disorder, especially a poorly run mental hospital.

    The war took its toll on every nation in a different way. It tore their people, their countries apart, ravaged their land, and ruined their minds. When it's finally over, no one knows what to do; where to begin in the dauntless task of reconstruction. As relief efforts bring human families back together, the nations, also, seek each other out. Healing is a slow and tedious process, but with each other, perhaps they can endure a little more and survive a little longer.

    Notes: This story is set in the late 1940s/early 1950s, just after the end of WWII.
    Trigger Warning! Please do not skip past this! This story has themes of drug abuse, self injury, suicide/suicidal ideation, eating disorders, and depression. If at any point during reading, you feel at all triggered, please stop. If you begin to feel like you might be a danger to yourself, contact a hotline. If some of the things mentioned in this story stick out to you and you find yourself wanting to try it, I promise you it is not worth it. Please, please take my word for it.

    Summary

    «— Не хочешь пойти в более... уединенное место?
    После долгого молчания блондин согласился.
    — Моя комната как раз в этом квартале, — сказал он, кивнув на дверь бара.»

    В 1937 году Стив Роджерс вступает в армию, а к 1945 году возвращается в Бруклин, уволенный в запас за недостойное поведение, не получив на руки никаких документов, чтобы подтвердить, чем занимался в течение многих лет на Тихом океане.
    В 1947 году семнадцатилетний Баки Барнс встречает Стива Роджерса в бруклинском гей-баре, и Стив Роджерс наконец возвращается домой.

    Summary

    "You get born, you keep your head down, and then you die - if you're lucky."

    The Basterd family aren't known for their good luck, it has to be said. If Hammersmith was a toilet, they'd be the soggy bits of loo roll clogging up its U-bend. This isn't to say they've never had their fun... just not much of it. Addie thinks the Basterd name is cursed. Pauline's inclined to agree. Most of their peers wouldn't see any fault in that theory either - apart from Eddie, that is, who doesn't think the downsides of being named Hitler should be overlooked. Vyvyan isn't so fond of the family mantra - it makes him fucking furious, actually - but he'll always be a Basterd, won't he? And who in their right mind would hang around a Basterd? Maybe one day some prat'll give the family some relief.

    ...But this story isn't about that. This story is the history of the Basterds, in all their anger. For that, we're going to have to go back a bit of a way: back before punks, poets, hippies, and cool people wrecked havoc on Codrington Road; back before the Hammersmith hardmen pitched tent in Mafeking Parade and never left. Our story begins in 1945, with a new world already haunted by ghosts from the old.

    Considering you once had your PhD it takes an unnervingly long time for you to realise where exactly you are.

    Summary

    La vida hace giros inesperados. No podemos predecir los cambios que trae a nosotros, a pesar de que estamos acostumbrados a las repeticiones.

    Es tan natural ver a nuestro entorno sucederse que nadie está preparado para ver cómo se rompe. Da igual cuán fuerte pensemos ser.

    Así sucedió con nosotros. No importa qué tan bien escondido estuviera el pueblo.

    Un día nos encontraron.

    Summary

    He couldn’t say why, exactly, he wanders into the tailor’s shop one morning. He buys strictly off-the-rack and the only suit he’s ever had tailored was his wedding suit. Maybe it’s that as he walks past, he hears a radio playing the repetitive “beep…beep…beep” of Sputnik passing overhead. It’s not a particularly pleasant sound, in the abstract, but for some people—like him—it might as well be the comforting sound of a heartbeat.

    Summary

    Lehto ei oikein itsekään osannut selittää itselleen, miten oli päätynyt vastaamaan vielä toiseen ja kolmanteenkin kirjeeseen. Lopulta Riitaojan kanssa käydystä kirjeenvaihdosta oli muodostunut tapa, eräänlainen tottumus tai rutiini, josta Lehto ei ollut enää edes halunnut luopua. Ennen pitkää heidän epätodennäköiseen ja epäsuhtaiseen kirjetoveruutensa olivat muodostuneet omat kirjoittamattomat sääntönsä. Lehtokin, joka ei ollut koskaan kirjoitellut kenenkään kanssa, oli ymmärtänyt nopeasti, että oli olemassa asioita, joista oli parempi olla kirjoittamatta. Sodasta he eivät olleet koskaan kirjoittaneet enempää kuin oli ollut aivan välttämätöntä. Jos aihe oli jostakin syystä noussut esille, kuin yhteisestä sopimuksesta he molemmat olivat vältelleet koskettelemasta sitä muuten kuin aivan yleisellä tasolla.
