    Summary

    Something I started in English class and decided to continue it.

    >>>I always did relish a challenge and she was the challenge I would forever love. Always keeping me on my toes and learning more puns to throw her way. It was all comparable to a childlike game which seemed to never end, a teenage love to last for eternities.

    Summary

    Got a prompt on tumblr from user @faeriviera: "Since you watch OITNB, maybe ace!Taystee/Poussey reuniting after they've both gotten out of jail?" and decided this would be an excellent prompt to write, so here it is!

    Summary

    “So you’re fucking the hipster who knows German,” Cindy says easily. “Better keep this good thing up until lease do you part.”

    (or, where Poussey is a cute hipster and is one-sixth-slash-roughly-15% of Taystee's sexual experience and they live together).

    Summary

    “Why’re you being such a dick, uh Nichols?”

    Oh you know, it’s not something she expects you to understand. It’s a lesbian thing, about Red not having named the coffee shop “The Bean Flicker” and her remarkable Piroshky “The Девственность Popper” so that girls like Lorna Morello, with pinup curly heads up in the clouds and exquisite chests full of dreams about prince charmings in naphthalene sweaters wouldn’t even dare to bring their CVs past the door. About falling for the straight girl, and falling so hard that she misses breaking her neck on rock bottom.

    “I just haven’t gotten any sleep, is all,” she says somewhat softened as she lights her cigarette, taking in a deep drag of smoke. “Y’know how this shit is, I’m like, the Fight Club guy, only I punch more imaginary shit up, and prefer using my fists for the actual, existent pussy that he didn’t get.” And an imaginary conscience, however fucked up She may be, is sure as hell better than an imaginary boyfriend, she wants to say, but she most clearly doesn’t.

    [From: Vause|8:11] I’m not going to beg u, Nichols

    Summary

    Poussey quivered with the urge to talk. After having no one to talk to for so long, she now felt ready to explode with every thought and feeling she’d had over the past few weeks. She wanted to trace over every break and fracture in their friendship to make it heal. Mostly, she wanted to hear Taystee say it, to affirm her importance so that she could finally know it was real.

    Summary

    Here’s the first rule that everyone tells you: don’t fall in love with your straight best friend. The second rule is probably not to say dumbass shit around her, either, stuff like all the pussy you’ve gotten—which isn't even that much, Jesus—because she’ll get that look on her face. You know the one. That split second, that pause, that discomfort that says she knows.

    Summary

    Poussey is in love with her best friend, no matter how much she denies it. As for Taystee, she might learn that sexuality is more of a spectrum, at least when the person you're falling for doesn't fit into the identity you'd carved for yourself.
