  2. Summary

    “The mirrors in your mind can reflect the best of yourself, not the worst of someone else.”

    Will Graham's problem isn't that he sees the violence in people and takes it as his own. It's that the violence in people makes him realize his own vast potential for the same. It's not exactly people that scare him as much as the idea that he may enjoy "justice" more than he admits. What if the best of himself is not so far off from someone else's worst?

    Summary

    Seifer examines it for a minute, the broken thing inside of him. He knows it’s still there, that despite her attempts it always will be. And he still thinks it’s the price he should pay for the things he did in his Sorceress’s name.

     

    But for the first time he thinks that maybe it doesn’t have to hurt.

     

    Seifer, Squall and Rinoa visit Esthar, so Squall can introduce Seifer to Laguna as his boyfriend instead of his enemy.

    (it's more likely than you think)

    Warlock "Lockie" Dowling summons a demon.

    Or, he buys a book off a suspiciously familiar bookseller and is convinced into demon summoning.

    It goes about as well as you'd expect.

    Summary

    "Aziraphale debated internally a bit, but curling his arm up around Crowley’s shoulder really was more comfortable. He knew he was being silly. He knew a dance was nothing and if it made Crowley happy after his feelings had apparently been hurt it wasn’t much to ask, but—it was the demon. He had the literally infernal talent to make even the simplest, least dubious things feel like a temptation. Aziraphale knew it was Crowley's nature, and not strictly saying his fault, but it did sometimes make things feel *complicated*."

    Biarritz, South of France, 1921. Aziraphale stumbles into Crowley apparently working the hotels and casinos as a gigolo.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    15/7. Completed.

    Summary

    Objectively, Primrose's dances were breathtaking, her movements lending her a grace and serenity that was difficult to replicate. Cyrus admired her abilities in the same way he admired a piece of artwork. He appreciated the skill and technicality that went into such artistic endeavors, but was rarely driven to an emotional response.

    And yet.

    Therion began to spin with intent, his body coiled like a whipcord, and Cyrus's heart jolted.
