    Summary

    PODFIC of write_away's fic my power was constricted in my heart
     

    Prince Byron Marcus Bryant - or, as he prefers to be called, Mark - has been in love with his servant and food taster, Oliver Ritz, ever since he was accidentally poisoned five years ago, but that's hardly his biggest problem right now. The King, his father, deeply despises aberrants, people with abilities outside the norm, and Mark... well, at least he's not the heir. The king wants him to be normal; Mark just wants to belong. The tension comes to a head at Mark's sister's engagement feast when a slow-acting drug gets past Oliver's test, and both men find themselves incapacitated and kidnapped.

    To their surprise, they are rescued from their certain fate by a trio of young aberrant -- or atypical, as they call themselves -- women trying to gather supplies for their camp. Despite misgivings and fear of the King's vengeance, the girls grudgingly take the men back to their settlement of atypicals in the woods where they can begin to discover who they really want to be.

    Tl;dr: A vaguely fantasy medieval royalty AU about finding love, trust, family, and acceptance when you’re not sure you deserve it.

    Summary

    After the events in The AM Archives, Mark is lonely. His sister is grieving a man he has no care for, his ex has found new love, and his mentee's life is going great.

    After the events in The AM Archives, Oliver is free. He travels the world, meets new people with fascinating powers, and magical artifacts are literally presented to him.

    Over the course of three years Mark and Oliver text each other through it all as their addictions grow, their relationships develop, and their world changes around them.

    Summary

    "I’ll be honest, I don’t often take new patients, and I want to make sure that the service I provide here is a good fit for your needs. Would you like to start with the reason you decided to set up an appointment with me today?”

    Jon twists the newspaper clipping in his hands again, then notices Dr. Bright looking down at it. His face gets hot, and he quickly tucks it into his pocket. “I, uhm. I saw your ad. It, ah, caught my eye, I suppose you might say.”

    Dr. Bright smiles. It’s a genuine smile, one that crinkles her eyes at the corners, but it also does very little to help Jon gauge her response. “Of course. It’s not exactly the most… typical method for advertising a therapist. Was there any particular reason it drew your attention?”

    Jon chews on his lip. “Well, ah. I don’t know that the sort of problems I have could be helped by any typical therapist.”

    ----

    Or, Somewhere Else, Jon finds a therapist.

    Summary

    Losing Adam was blue. Blue like Caleb had never known. More blue than any of Adam's deep oceans of emotion that he let Caleb close enough to feel. More murky than the blue of missing old friends or family. Tinged with the purple of regret, orange anxieties of what ifs, and slimy icky sludge of something Caleb still hadn't quite grasped.

    AKA: Alice makes Caleb listen to Taylor Swift and it reminds him of how much he misses Adam after they kind of break up. Very angsty but if I can write the whole thing it'll end up alright :) Takes place between seasons two and three.

    (Title is from Daylight by Taylor Swift)

    Summary

    Caleb Widoghast has been out of the AM for years now. He’s finally got a person he feels comfortable with and a way to keep researching while saving up enough money to far far away from the AM. Far enough that they won’t ever be able to track him down. But when he hears of people being kidnapped in a way that feels far too familiar, will he be able to match wits with his old teacher and prosecutor? Will his fire and the rag-tag group of atypical and atypical-adjacent people be strong enough to get everyone out safely?

    Summary

    But Frankie’s already up out of his seat, heading towards the door. The lights are starting to flicker and he has tiny sparks flying from his fingertips. He shoves his hands into his pockets, trying to stifle them. “I was right, I was--”

    He dives for the door. Sadie can hear his footsteps thudding down the hall.

    She runs after him.

    Or: Frankie isn’t doing great after the fight at Yale and someone needs to make him some hot cocoa and give him a hug.

    Summary

    Sam has two goals for the summer: adjusting to her new job at the AM and navigating how to stay friends with Mark in the aftermath of their breakup. But between that and taking an opportunity to expand the scope of what she can do with her ability, she eventually comes to a realization about her feelings for Joan that threatens to upend the entire balance of her life. Because nothing good can ever come out of falling for your co-worker/friend/former therapist/ex-boyfriend's sister, right? (She's wrong about that, by the way.)

    Summary

    It was entirely normal to be happy to hear from your friend, Oliver told himself. And if his phone buzzing made his heart beat faster in anticipation, that was also normal. That always happened when he got a text, even when it was just Mark passing along a meme or making fun of his bad photography skills.

    It took him a full ten minutes to realize what had happened.

    Damn her eyes, Isabel was right. So now what?

    —-

    Oliver finally realizes he’s caught feelings for Mark, and handles it about as well as you’d expect. Plus: Mountain Dew chicken, SNAXOLOTL t-shirts, literal 14-year-olds renting people boats without safety equipment, pierogi, and meteor showers.

    Summary

    The year is 1815, many years since Samantha Barnes was last home, and she desperately hopes that she'll be able to hide her trips from the new visitors on her doorstep. Mark Bryant hopes that he too can keep his shit together, even when a face from the past resurfaces at a masquerade ball and threatens to pull his whole life apart.

     

    She takes a breath and turns the knob, swinging the door open to reveal a man and a woman stood waiting on her doorstep.
    “Hello!” the man exclaims with a smile. “I knew there was someone here.”
    “I’m sorry about my brother,” the woman grimaces. “We’d just heard you arrived here and wanted to welcome you to the area. My name is Joan Thompson and this is my brother, Mark Bryant.”
    “Nice to meet you, m’lady,” Mark winks and Joan nudges him in the side without breaking eye contact with Sam.
    “I’m Samantha,” Sam rushes to say. “Samantha Barnes, that is.”
    “It’s lovely to meet you, Miss Barnes,” Joan smiles, her tone friendly but her eyes sharp and critical. Sam becomes painfully aware of the dust that still covers her dress.
    “Oh, I — thank you, I suppose,” she mutters nervously. “It’s odd being back here.”

    Summary

    He glances back up to her. The way he looks at her is leagues apart from the way that Ellie looks at her. “If that works for you, that is.” Owen is looking at her with what almost seems like admiration. It’s this kind, committed, hopeful look that feels like a goddamn spotlight.

    Meeting Ellie’s eyes feels like a challenge, not in that it’s hard, but in that it feels like she’s egging you on to something. Like she’s looking for something, not at someone. It makes Joan want to say or do something to impress her. Makes her want to want to light a spark behind that endearing and calculating calm.

    “Friday after school every week works perfect,” she responds.

    She decides that both of their eye contact is equally good, but God, does it feel uncomfortable. They’re unlike many other people that Joan spends time with in that just talking to them, just looking at them feels like something intimate, and frankly, she doesn’t know how to respond to that.

    *

    Second semester of her junior year of high school, Joan Bryant starts a study group.
