    Summary

    It took exactly eleven months for Ava to begin having strange vivid dreams that seemed to connect with the last, details increasing as the nights went on. She blamed it on her late night true crime binges and late night snacking until the dreams began to shift, then she knew these weren't normal coincidence.

    When one dreams prompts her to seek out the key her mother always left in the kitchen storage drawer, she follows it. She uses the key to unlock the door under their basement staircase and walks right through it, the door shutting itself behind her.

    She opens her eyes to find herself in the middle of a forest underneath a large tree.

    Summary

    What do you do when the most popular girl in school pushes you against a locker after gym class and kisses you?

    If you'd ask Vi, she'd tell you that she would kiss her back... and then slap her in the face.

    //

    Our favourite useless lesbians are back in an enemies to lovers high school plot. Caitlyn Kiramman, popular, rich, pretty and very closeted, has turned into a bit of a mean girl by accident. In the proces, she has made an enemy in Violet Lanes, misfit, outcast, smoker, out-of-the-closet lesbian, badass and guitarist in her own band.

    Naturally, they despise each other. Until that kiss in the locker room.

    Summary

    - PART THREE COMPLETE -

    Though their childhoods couldn’t have been more separate from one another, they had always gazed upon the same sky, full of crystal stars at night and bright with a clear blue in the day.

    But now, any future where they could even be safe, let alone at peace, seemed impossibly far away.

    And that sky that they’d shared was as red as a painter’s favourite shade. Vi had spent so many years in darkness that the colour was striking as she stared, terrified, at the trajectory of Jinx’s missile, and felt the shock rip through Caitlyn’s body with a scream, Vi’s heart breaking three times over, as she let her second gauntlet drop with a steel clang. 

    She could admit that she’d hoped for a more productive and less dangerous meeting with her sister. But as she and Caitlyn relied on each other to stand, to move forward, to face Jinx’s mortifyingly destructive action, Violet just secured her arm tighter around Caitlyn’s waist, beginning to understand that there would be very little hope in chasing what raced further and further away from her with every second, with a hungry, angry smile - a smile that Vi no longer recognized.

    Summary

    Former biathlon athlete Caitlyn sees her career ending way too early and decides to move across the Atlantic to work in the same school as Jayce, her childhood friend, as a PE teacher. There she meets Vi, an English teacher, who leads a simple, happy but somehow lonely life. Even if she refuses to acknowledge it.

    Yet.

    Summary

    "'Oil and water'...and what? She's the oil?" Ekko laughed. "Bullshit. She's salt. Stir her up and she'll melt right into you."

    [Immediately following the end of Arcane Ep 9. As the cities descend into war, Caitlyn and Vi seek refuge, grappling with the aftermath.]


    Upcoming Chapter 10 Release Date: July 17, 2022.

    Please note the additional content warnings and updated rating. Chapters 6 and beyond are intended for mature audiences. Reader discretion is advised.


    Note: Items related to SA are non-explicit and are not ongoing themes. However, out of an abundance of care, mentions of SA will be called out at chapter-level with in-line markers ([#] to stop reading, [##] to resume) so readers can choose to avoid this content if they so desire. For the avoidance of doubt, canon-characters are fully plot-armored against SA despite my treating SA as extant in the universe.

    Readers should be prepared to encounter all other Mature Content without additional warning.
