    Summary

    "I guess that's the sort of humanizing detail you forget after a while," admits Vanya as she approaches Klaus with his treasure. She's becoming too pensive for a thirty-year-old woman wearing sweatpants while her apartment becomes ravished with the smell of melting butter.

    "Yes, of course, yes, yes, the sorrow of familial estrangement," says Klaus as he takes the box out of her gratuitously fretful hands. He has what he needs now, so he decides that's enough of that. "Now come on, come on. As much as I love the shrieking ballad of stainless steel…"

    Vanya smooths out just a little as she returns to the stovetop so she can tend to the kettle as it whistles out a trail of steam.

    Summary

    "Their marks from their mother are nearly identical: matching stripes of bright grass-green right across mirrored cheekbones, as if she’d made them by brushing away their tears. She would do exactly that when they cried over skinned knees or spilled breakfast, brown thumb for Vax and blue thumb for Vex, before gathering them into a tight hug. “There, there, darling,” she’d murmur into whichever twin’s ear. “It’ll be alright, I promise.”

    (Soulmarks don’t change when the giver dies. Vex knows this, has been told this, but she can’t help looking at her brother’s cheek when they’re standing among the ashes of their childhood home. In the fading light of the day, the faint green looks more like a half-healed bruise than any sign that they were loved.)"

    Vox Machina, the marks they carry, and the marks they leave on each other.

    Summary

    The one where Clarke has a weirdly popular youtube channel, Octavia is her annoying yet amazing roommate, Raven is famous??? and Lexa is kinda nerdy and has deep conversations with her pets when nobody is around.

    No, Taylor Swift's song doesn't have that much in common with this story, but well, I suck at coming up with titles...

    Summary

    Three years ago, Scanlan vanished from Greyskull Apartments, leaving only burnt bridges and his old guitar. Yesterday, he resurfaced in police custody, under the watchful eye of Kima and Allura.

    The police have a proposition for Pike- a sting, to catch her scamming family and get them off the streets. At the same time, Scanlan is suspected of involvement with a large crime ring in Emon, but he refuses to give up the identity of its leader. The solution? Fake a wedding between Scanlan and Pike, to attract the Trickfoots into town, and hope Scanlan will spill something to one of his oldest friends with enough time.

    But as Pike learns the truth of why Scanlan left, their relationship grows more and more complicated, leaving her no easy answers. And while old feelings reignite, the Trickfoots are watching their every step. Pike and Scanlan just may find out how deadly a lie can be.....
