    Summary


    It feels like Kaoru’s on the verge of death as he bursts through the hospital doors.

    He’s probably, no definitely, broken several laws on the way here; he definitely ran at least one red light, and he’d treated speed limits like they were advisory, rather than a hard and fast rule. It feels like he can’t breathe, the dangerous rabbit of his heart, the rising nausea, and the oppressive weight bearing down on his chest. His eyes burn with tears he refuses to shed, feeling too much like an acceptance if he does, and when he plants his palm against the reception counter his hand trembles.

    “I’m here for Nanjo Kojiro,” Kaoru breathes in a rush. He hears his own words echoed and frantic in his head.

    Kojiro is hit with a dose of a powerful new drug, Pollen, during a beef. Kaoru is his emergency contact, in more ways than one.

    Summary

    He doesn’t look up when Baiyi passes. Probably doesn’t even remember him. So what. You don't need a rosebush to remember you, you just enjoy catching sight of it here and there.

    Summary

    They would stalk for days, then strike without warning, brutal, violent, wild and base. They’d take for themselves whatever they wanted; they’d play around with the rest for as long as it amused them. Then they’d sink beneath the surface, vanished.
    These were the tales.
    Only a few wreckages had been attributed, and even those more by superstition than evidence. Fishing boats were splintered and gutted; men much the same. They’d find pieces — pulp and bone, sea-bleached and sun-rotted — washing ashore with the rest of the wreck, the stink of it attracting dense flocks of gulls, their raucous squabbles and beating wings reverberant in fetid air. They whispered Mer because there had been so many losses; because there were too few survivors to tell them otherwise; because they needed something to blame beside each other, and the legend would do…

    Ignis Scientia, Investigative Scientist, has been summoned to Insomnia to break a long-standing curse on the town, certain that his objective viewpoint will solve the mystery in short time.
    He begins with the ocean, hoping to shine the light of logic into the darkness below.
    But what if the darkness finds him first?

    Summary

    Yes, time, Kaoru thinks, as Kojiro slides his hand down the length of his arm to undo the gloves and wrist guards, is a curious thing. It’s all they have between them, years of whatever this is, and Kaoru keeps stepping just out of reach, drawing that time out, watching how it unravels.

    Kojiro undresses Kaoru for the first time, at his (Kaoru’s) request.
