    Summary

    Cautiously, Steve puts his hand on Clint’s neck, lightly enough to be shaken off, close enough to feel the shift of his spinal cord under his palm and between his fingers and thumb. The magnitude of his trust feels like a chasm stretched out beneath them, and the freefall of accepting it leaves Steve breathless.

    It would take nothing, absolutely nothing, for Steve to break Clint’s neck like this. One squeeze, and he would drop like a torn sack of barley.

    “You’re really bad at hugging, Cap,” Clint says, and Steve laughs, deep in his chest.

    Summary

    Part One: Sixth Year

    The Great Hall falls just as silent as Louis, as one by one the kids who get sent the paper every morning see the day’s breaking news. After the initial silence, the whispers start. His own housemates start staring, their eyes wide. Louis can't bring himself to stop looking around, to stop seeing everyone looking at him knowing that his family, the one he never asked to be brought into is now the target of public shame.

    Harry’s hand finds its way into his, and the discomfort of the sentiment behind it only serves to make Louis’ stomach twist into a tighter knot. He rips his hand away, panic settling in, and he can't seem to leave the hall fast enough.

    Or, the one where Louis' life falls apart in three different ways, all at once.

    Summary

    "Surely you can appreciate that the conversation came out of nowhere, Albus."
    "It really didn't. If you'd paid any attention to me you'd know something was wrong. You and mum, this morning. She insisted that I wasn't okay but you- didn't give a damn."
    "Because I never know what to think with you! We go up and down, we talk but I never really see you. I have tried my best since September to learn about you, to listen. But you have continually withdrawn from conversation." Harry began, again, moving closer to Albus.

    or the one where albus tells his parents.
