    Summary

    Bitterness comes from things that have been left to build themselves up, brewing and sauntering and waiting to be acknowledged. And so, every bitterness is different, has its own unique aftertaste. This one tastes of ruins. Of wreckage. It tastes of mistakes and of all the the things Renjun could not save because he did not know how to trust himself. How to forgive himself.

    And Jeno, bless his heart, will taste the bitterness, add some sugar to it and, oh so awkwardly but softly, let it melt away, because Renjun is not made of it. Renjun is, simply put, love.

    Summary

    Connor has anxiety. Hank is late to work on a daily basis. Amanda is gone (good riddance) (and Connor misses her). Markus can't afford to be a diva. Gavin is a walking headache. North both keeps Markus from going insane and is the main reason for him to go insane. Hank is either friends or enemies with Chris but no one is sure which, especially Hank and Chris. Kara is awkward as hell. It's a mess, but hey, it can always get worse.

    Now to be continued because I figured out how to end this story in a way that actually makes me happy.

    Summary

    Even after deciding to stay at camp following the war with Gaea, Nico is unready or perhaps unwilling to open up—not to Will Solace, not to Jason, and definitely not to Camp Half-Blood as a whole. Especially not when he's busy keeping his identity under wraps, unconsciously damaging his cabin in response to nightmares, and discovering a new part of himself that seems to him like just another reason to feel alienated.

    Summary

    A romp through the Academy Phase with the Blue Lions. This is what happened during those ~in-between days at the monastery~ original material mixed with retellings of narrative events. There is continuity but not strictly, I skip ahead sometimes so I can follow my muse 彡☆ 'Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged' xoxo Virginia Woolf.
    Dimitri is a sweet, sad, angsty, bad boy - passivity is dead, he is in love, a little possessive, and totally seduces his Professor. Sothis is the best girl. Felix, Byleth and Linhardt are best friends, getting into trouble and being sarcastic together. Hilda and Ingrid are falling in love. Marianne is a mystic. Mercedes is an urban witch. Byleth is a C-cup because I am bad at physics. Ferdinand is the noblest Blue Lion. Sylvain and Bernie publish a romance serial. Linhardt starts a fight club. Hilda and Linhardt are ultimate wingmen.
    It's a witchy brew of slice of life, school days, friendships, antics, attempted comedy, heart to hearts, falling in love, romance, sex, monastery mysteries, sleuthing, Abyss underworld shenanigans and other random ideas that come into my head.

    Summary

    "There was nowhere to go. He could leave the house, renounce his name, but he’d still be trapped. He couldn’t walk out of his body."

    The Hargreeves become a family twice--once by circumstance on the day of their adoption, and a second time by choice.

    Or, the one in which: Diego and Vanya form a garage band, Five teeters on the brink between plucky entrepreneur and mad scientist, and Klaus learns to love the quiet domesticity of life in the country. Maybe. Meanwhile Allison realizes that forcing a family road trip might not have been the best way to instigate a little sibling bonding, Luther misses the bad old days, and Ben fancies himself a brooding gothic tragedy à la Mary Shelley. The Horror does not share that sentiment. Much like learning to coexist with the finicky alien living under your skin, making nice with six troubled siblings takes patience, plenty of compromise, and some unorthodox methods of self-discovery.

    Summary

    It all changed with a simple little request. It was on a lazy afternoon mid-January that Yumehara asked Kaidou if she could practice makeup on him. The idea of it scared him as much as it made him curious. It's not like makeup would be the end of the world, he's a guy, he knows he's a guy, and he knows that when he washes it off he'll still be the same guy he's always been. Right?
