    Summary

    “Well - if nothing's broken, you didn't chip any teeth or anything, then I guess it's all good, right?"

    (It is not all good. It has lost everything. It has unbecome itself and now it has nothing, not even the wings on its back, not even the Sight in its core.) "Yes."

    Or: in which Grian has Fallen, but somebody is there to pick him up again. And again, and again, and again, every time he cannot find his way.

    Summary

    “Look at me,” Grian says one last time—though he doesn’t need to. Not now, when Scar is staring at him as though he has hung the moon and the stars. Grian fixes his grip on the knife and presses it more firmly into the soft skin of his wrist—until blood wells up to the surface and a sharp pain shoots through him.

    An identical cut blossoms on Scar’s wrist, and he says breathlessly, “I—No. No. Oh my God.”

    Or: a retelling of Grian and Scar's soulmate reveal in episode one. If only Scar wasn't so oblivious...

    Summary

    Grian’s smile is a cutting flash of bared white teeth. “I'm right,” he says; above them, the sky rumbles with thunder, clouds darkening around the edges. “You only come to me when you need resources. Or entertainment. Or company—“

    “Grian,” says Scar, patient. “That’s what couples do.” His gaze cuts like the sharpened edge of a knife. “They spend time together.”

    “But—we’re not a couple.” Grian stares at him, at a loss for words. Does Scar think—are we? “We’re just soulmates.”


    Or: Scar burns down the ranch on a whim, and several misunderstandings ensue. But he gets to kiss Grian in the rain, so it's a win-win, really.

    Summary

    “You’re shivering,” he says quietly. “Why don’t you come in?”

    He would like to do anything but that. Looking at Scar now he can practically see the blood dribbling from the corner of his mouth, shadows playing tricks on his eyes whenever Scar so much as turns his head. His fingers are brands on Grian’s arm, and so he moves away, prying himself out from under his touch and gaze the best he can without shattering further. Scar doesn’t remember. There was no spark of familiarity when Grian asked about anything they’d built together. Only a thick layer of concern.

    “I’m sorry,” Grian says on instinct, straightening up a little bit. His wings fold in naturally, and he fights for any semblance of control. Or at least to look a little less crazy. “I– it appears I just had a bad dream.”

    (or, Grian is the winner of Third Life. His prize is to remember.)

    Summary

    It wasn't a secret. It had never been a secret. Neither Scar nor Grian were the type to hide such a thing. Their friends just...knew. So they didn't talk about it. They were a Thing, and that was that.

    Slight problem: Nobody thought to tell the newest Hermit's about this.

    Slightly bigger problem: Pearl found out. It...well, it went as well as you think it did.
