    Summary

    It starts at a party on a Friday night, as things in college ordinarily do. She's drunk with a loose grip around a series of bad habits. One of them takes her to bed, and then does it again, and again, and again. They've all seen the movies. Yang should've interpreted them as warning signs.

    I don't want to talk about love, Blake says.

    Well, Yang answers, I don't want to feel it.

    Summary

    It’s been a year but Yang knows her, knows what her body means in the way it moves, knows every tilt of her mouth, every blink, every beat of her heart, every chamber of it, the way it bruises and bleeds and bumps against her chest. I’ve lived there, Yang thinks of telling her, please let me leave. But Blake is silent and doesn’t move.

    The truth is easy for Yang to see until it isn't. I love you, Blake says. It's the only reason I've ever done anything.

    There you go, Yang says, lying again.

    Summary

    She could have stayed here forever, fighting house fires and responding to traffic accidents. She sniffs and lets herself be buried in a bear hug, crushed between the familiar smell of aftershave and firehoses. She could have stayed here forever, but she has a plane ticket to California and the small life she’s built here already packed up, promises she made herself still left to keep.

    Summary

    AU: Blake is disillusioned: with her career in the White Fang Ballet, with her oppressive boyfriend and ballet master, and her life in general. A chance visit to the Shattered Moon Circus, however, introduces her to trapeze artist and aerial dancer Yang, who offers to teach Blake how to fly. As she learns to let go and trust in the people who catch her, she falls in more ways than one when it comes to Yang.

    “Blake,” Sienna says, calmly. “Have you lost your goddamn mind?”

    And maybe she has. After all, Blake can't just run away and join the circus.
