    Summary

    Jamie doesn’t hear the end of it for days.

    If it’s not about how friendly Miss Clayton is––how warm she is, how she’d wrapped Flora in the most wonderful hug on the first day, how big she smiles when Flora or her classmates answer a question right, make her laugh, or really seems to do anything at all––it’s about cool she is, how American, and that? That is something Jamie simply cannot abide.

    “I remember when you used to call me cool,” Jamie sighs wistfully, sliding a bowl of ramen in front of Flora before sinking into her seat across from her. “Not some…” She waves a hand, vaguely, crinkling her nose, “American.”

     

    or: as long as it's mattered to jamie, it's always been her and flora. always, that is, until dani clayton, flora's year four teacher.

    Summary

    “You don’t even know me.”

    “So, what, I can’t want to get to know you?” Dina challenges her with a cocked eyebrow.

    “Uh,” Ellie stutters. “I guess that’s your risk to take.”

    ---

    A break from the apocalyptic setting, and a vacation into a whole other type of struggle. College isn't without its challenges, no matter how tough you think you are.

    Summary

    To maintain the fragile peace between north and south, Clarke of House Tyrell is sent to live in Winterfell as an act of faith between the two kingdoms. There, she is put under the protection of the first queen in the north, Queen Lexa of House Stark, Daughter of Wolves. A woman draped in steel and silver, wolves at her heels and rumoured to be a manifestation of the fury of the old gods; Clarke refuses to be awed be her quiet violence and cold smile. Instead of fostering unity, the meeting of the wolf and the rose lights a spark that spreads through the rest of Westeros, threatening to burn it to the ground.

    Summary

    “One day,” her aunt would whisper in her ear. “One day, this is going to be yours, Nicole. This will be your lighthouse and you will be its keeper.” She’d curl an arm around Nicole’s shoulders. “You will be the protector of all the things in the water. The ships and their captains. The fishers and their boats. The mermaids and the sirens and the selkies.” She’d press a kiss to the top of Nicole’s head. “Especially them.”

    Summary

    "Dina brought the button-up close to her face, slowly closed her eyes, and deeply breathed in the lingering scent.

    It smelled like…

    ...like the earth out in the woods.

    Like the soap they all shared in the bath, tinged with lavender.

    Like the oil she had watched Ellie rub into the fretboard of her old guitar.

    Like whiskey.

    Like Ellie."

    A slow burn, Dina-centric story, about whether or not love can ever find it's way back home through hurt and loss.

    Complete.
