    Summary

    She knows what it is to lack purpose.

    The lack of other things—unconditional stability, benevolent guidance, a happy home—causes damage, but aimlessness.... She knows both sides of that equation too well.

    But they are children. They have guardians that are not hopelessly incompetent, and they even have a chance for catharsis despite their father's death. Theirs is not an inevitable path.

    [Elfnein and Carol reconcile. Resolution is the name of the game.] [Multiple POVs; short chapters.] [Should read "Counting Sheep" and "Alphabet Soup" first.]

    Summary

    “One more word and I’m going to drive us both off a cliff,” Hinata deadpanned.
    “Well, I would probably survive it. Ultimate Lucky Student and all.” Komaeda tilted his head. “But if you really do want to kill me, I’m sure we can find a way to make it happen!”

    On the way back from the third-year class trip to Hokkaido, the bus happened to leave two students behind: a tag-along Reserve Course boy who, as always, wasn’t quite sure how he kept getting himself into these situations, and an enigmatic young man who was beginning to feel very, very cheated by his luck.
    Now, if Hajime Hinata wants to get back to Tokyo, he’s going to have to face a hotwired car, 900 miles of open road, and ten days stuck with Nagito Komaeda.

    Summary

    “It’s all commercialism anyways,” Chiaki mutters, blushing as she spills chocolate once more. “It doesn’t really matter...”

    Komaeda laughed, lightly. “Ahaha, that’s not hopeful at all, Nanami-san! Even if it was manufactured, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have meaning... Love is always something to celebrate, isn’t it?”

    “I guess...” she puffed out her cheeks. “It really was just made to sell stuff, though.”

    “Well, that doesn’t mean it has to stay that, does it?” Komaeda smiled gently, putting in salt and stirring it in to his bowl. “You can give it a new meaning. Isn’t that what we’re doing, making these chocolates by hand?”

    -

    Chiaki and Komaeda make chocolates.

    Summary

    Kyoko counts. Twelve, thirteen, fourteen...

    The door creaks open, and another boy awkwardly steps inside the main hall.

    Fifteen. That’s everyone. (Right?)

    She lets herself take a deep, steadying breath.

    Time to begin.

    ...If only she could remember what, exactly, is beginning.

    (The boy smiles from the doorway—awkward, bright, and out of place.)
