    Summary

    David has a past. A less-than-squeaky-clean past, actually; one that prompts him to move away from the city in search of a new life, one without a menagerie of disappointments and fallouts.

    Katherine is working at a job she's overqualified for, is married to a husband she's not happy with, and is ready to either give up and stay put or throw in the towel. All in all, she's ready for change.

    Jack wanted change once, until 'change' turned into 'bad'. He doesn't want 'bad' anymore, but everything- and everyone- around him is changing... even things he thought he knew about himself.

    Worlds collide, relationships are tested, lives are changed.

    Welcome to Tarrytown.

    **inspired by the Tarrytown musical; can be read with no knowledge of Tarrytown canon**

    Summary

    Rodrigue. Dimitri scrubs at his eye, but even the one that’s gone still leaks tears. He covers them both with his arm and tries to compose himself.

    Rodrigue is dead. Rodrigue is dead because of him. Everyone is dead because of him. It’s another ghost to haunt him.

    Somehow, he does it—composes himself. Enough to talk, at least. He needs to talk to Felix. He doesn’t know how to approach him. Felix has been in the graveyard for an hour. At least, that’s how long Dimitri’s been watching him, tucked away against the side of the monastery because he’s too afraid to show himself. Felix has probably been here even longer than that; he disappeared immediately after dinner without eating a thing.

    Sundown is fleeting, and darkness crawls in from overhead. They can’t stay out here all night. Not with all these ghosts.

    ———

    In the shadow of Rodrigue's death, Dimitri and Felix confront the darkness in their own fraying relationship.

    Summary

    Marriage is a union between two people. A sacred ceremony which binds people together to share a life. Jimin knew this. If he didn't love Namjoon, why would he have agreed to spend the rest of his life with him on that altar eight years ago?

    Maybe if he knew that their love would fade. That their marriage would deteriorate to a shadow of what it once was, he never would've married him. Passion is like a beautiful rose: it starts out a vibrant, lively red but eventually wilts into a dull, lifeless wisp -- able to be blown away by a tiny gust of wind.

    That gust is Jungkook Jeon his new, drop-dead gorgeous neighbor.

    Will Jimin succumb to their undeniable connection? Was God's plan to bring him to this very moment to the smart, handsome, gold rose in front of him? Or is Jungkook really a thorny weed sprayed with fool's gold, ready to entangle him in his web of lies?

    Summary

    Ren had been falling, an attack from a sneaky shadow throwing him off of the great pyramid that was Futaba's Palace, the ground rapidly approaching him.

    And then Arsene had burrowed his face into Ren's neck (which, ow,) and was thrumming at Ren like some sort of bird, his wings quivering in panic and his claws drawing blood from the sheer force of their grip. Their shared mental space was still an indecipherable mess of emotions, panic and worry only slowly ebbing away to gratitude, sheer affection coating Ren's insides until he felt as if his heart was floaty and his head full of cotton candy.

    Actually, his head might've been light because of a concussion, but anyways--

    Still, he's never felt clearer-headed than in that moment, ironically, and so Ren grinned a softer version of Joker's grin at Arsene, and tugged at the persona's mask until they were face-to-face, and then he pressed his lips squarely there where Arsene's mouth was, flames licking at his face.

    Summary

    "He was greeted with Tubbo, who looked… A lot worse than he thought the teen could have ever looked. 

    The teen was slumped over on the floor against the cabinets, looking as though he had fallen asleep sitting up. Despite that, his eyes were still half-open and glassy, like he wasn’t fully there with murky pupils that held no light in them. He held a bottle to his mouth, sipping from it lethargically as he slowly drained all of it. His shirt was unbuttoned at the top to show sweaty collarbones that showed just how flushed he was. It highlighted his pink face and the way that he looked much more tired than he had before. 

    Ranboo wasn’t sure what to say, not at all. He wasn’t versed in things like this."

    or

    ranboo learns that sometimes, a good husband doesn't make a good friend.
