    Summary

    Fai smiles against glossed glass. His eyes are black—the color of coal-dust, of decay, dark and distant and wrong—and against the gold of his lashes (still-wet, glimmering in the firelight, bathwater kissing down one cheek), they are smothering.

    "You fight, before," he mulls, thoughtfully, as if he's rolled the words around his tongue long enough to lose their taste. They're the first ones out of him since the fog had grown cold and the moonlight had lapped at the edges of their tent's fastenings—he'd crawled back from the bathhouses sometime before then, bundled and barefoot and hair a wet frenzy; had made quick work of rekindling their fire pot, and settling down with drink, and had said nothing to the slow plant of another bottle between them. "War," he clarifies, and his grin widens. It doesn't reach his eyes.

    Summary

    Fai breathes. It clatters through his bones, serpent-like. After a stolen lifetime of brutal victories, the frailness sticks between Kurogane's ribs like a pit of lead. "You should," he starts, and stares, swallows. His eyes cut away, an ache in his jaw. "You should rest," he finishes.

    Ice knots within Fai's spine. "You should go," he amends, the words hissing off the walls like scraped steel.

    Summary

    A companion piece to Press and Pull (Breath and Ghosts), more fragmented, and following the same events in a different light.

    "Fai fought because the person before him wanted him dead, and he had better things to do than die in a filthy field on a world he didn’t know or care for. It wasn’t a test of strength or even a rush. It was kill or be killed, and Fai was wildly efficient at it when he put his mind to it. It was majestic. It was awe-inspiring. It was the stuff legends were borne of back on Kurogane’s world.

    "The creature of the swamp that had passed out right on Fai’s froo-froo bed was just pathetic."

    Summary

    "Kurogane would hear it sometimes, deep in the night, usually much later than this. He couldn’t say Fai was singing, per se — there were no words in the tunes. He had the impression that whatever was behind them, it was too personal to voice, too powerful to hum, and too raw to sully with the terrible impression of a whistle he tended to use. Instead, Fai just vocalized in long and lilting vowels, melodies drifting into every open space until Kurogane almost convinced himself that Fai’s voice had become an apparition itself and haunted the very ears that heard it."

    10 pages of me waxing poetic about fighting together, spinning magic theory and calling it a fic, and coming under the spell of rich smoke and a lonely song.

    Summary

    I woke up to shouted gibberish and almost suffocating from someone holding my nose. This is never a very good sign for the rest of the day. I like sleeping in, but even I can be persuaded to be a morning person, so there’s no need for that. “I’m up, I’m up,” I said, knowing full well that he couldn’t understand me, but counting on context.

    Summary

    "In Yama, Fai had learned Kurogane’s language in spurts. At first, the only things that seemed to stick were the things Kurogane yelled the loudest."

    In Nihon, the effects of a plant take away their shared language all over again.

    Summary

    Fai laughs with bloody teeth and black, black eyes — it’s the kind of laugh that has bones in it, sharp and splintered, and the sweep of a pink tongue over a cut and bleeding lip drives a spike of heat through Kurogane’s gut just as easily as the toss of Fai’s chin and the sweep of blonde hair.

    Summary

    Nihongo is a strange tongue, evenly sprinkled with consonants and vowels, crisp and sharp but not unkind – much like Kurogane himself. Compared to the gentle roll and glide of Celesian, the difference makes Fai think that these are two languages not meant to meet.

    Fai wants to learn Nihongo. He wants a lot more, actually, but doesn’t have the words to say it.
