    Bookmarker's Notes

    “I’m in love with you,” she said.

    His face moved in small ways, the muscles pulling here and there, around his eyes, his mouth, his jaw. “You might think that after last night because of the sex and my—how did you put it—ungodly handsomeness.”

    “You think I don’t know the difference between a crush and love?”

    He sighed. “I think you don’t know you could tear me to shreds.”

    “What?”

    “I have a heart to break, Brienne. That’s what comes with having a heartbeat.”

    Summary

    Lannister blood was not to be wasted, but she had forgotten that. And in his weakness, so had he.

    Later on, Tywin planned to watch the thing that played at being a boy, see its chest rise and fall, watch it struggle in its own weakness, and die. And it would happen—if it called itself a Lannister, came from one, roared like one, then it had its own debt to pay.

    Summary

    When he finally gets to the restaurant to meet his friends for a birthday dinner, the television mounted to the wall has the news on, and there’s Mia disembarking from her plane, waving to the press with a practiced smile. He hasn’t seen her in five years—no, it’s got to be six, now—but he can still read the exhaustion written across her picture-perfect face.

     

    Years later, Michael reunites with the love of his life. Future-fic for first movie canon.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The trouble is there just wasn’t closure. He’s got a lifetime of song material and enough neuroses to finance his therapist’s house remodel, but what he’d really like is to go all the way back in time to undo the summer when he was seventeen and Mia snuck into his room in the palace just so they could lie in bed and watch movies until four in the morning. It wasn’t even like they were having sex at that point—everything was too new and Mia was too young—but he’s still never quite reached the high of that intimacy again in his life, the way he felt with his arms under her shoulders and her breath warm against his neck as she whispered her world-sized fears in his ear, blanketed in the safety of nighttime quiet. Back then it was the two of them against the world, and he was too young and stupid to realize it wouldn’t last forever.

    Summary

    Maybe if he’d saved Mandy’s life, or Iggy’s, you’d be thankful for the first time in your own fucked-up life. But he saved Terry, and hating him is easy. Until he smiles. Until he’s soft. Until he's gentle. Until he looks at you like he gives a shit. And then you don’t hate him so much anymore.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Gallagher crouches in front of you and digs through his first-aid kit. Fucking boy scout.

    “How’d you get these other injuries?”

    “Fuck you.”

    He ignores that and dribbles something onto a cotton ball. “Hand?”

    You hold out your hand and he takes it gently. You shouldn’t notice that – you shouldn’t – but after the last twenty-four hours gentle sticks out, gentle soothes, gentle hurts.

    Summary

    Ian's on his goddamn mind all the time and this isn't like bruises or near misses with cops or his dad's fucked up punishments. It doesn't matter what he does. He's not thinking of anything else.

    You've never been like this. Slow and soft and someone asleep at your back. Vulnerable. Ever. There have been very few bright spots in your life: your mother, Mandy, Ian. You try and convince yourself it's not what you want. It is. It's what you want.
