    Summary

    “I could find out for you.” Éponine volunteers before she altogether consents to herself to volunteer, and Marius' gaze fixes bright on her. She lets herself tremble a little.

    “You would?” He sits up to look more closely at her; he is unrelenting.

    “Yeah, Marius,” she says. “I’ll—I’ll talk to her for you.”

    Summary

    ”What do we, uh,” She starts, hoping that this won’t come out sounding like a porn ad. “What do we do in these dreams?”

    Calliope raises an eyebrow. ”You know, you’re the one that’s in them.”

    ”I know, but I’m…” Juliette kind of wants to bury her face in her hands. “I’m trying to be sexy over here.”

    Summary

    “You’re stuck with all of this until you drain someone?”

    She nods.

    Cal reaches out with her free hand and gently turns Juliette’s face toward her, being careful to avoid the blood. “So why haven’t you?”

    “I don’t want to.”

    Juliette looks her square in the eyes as she says it, and Cal’s bullshit detector remains impossibly silent, and she feels her stomach drop, clench, explode.

    Fuck.

    (Cal finds Juliette in the middle of a Migraine, the way we all deserved. Title from "Oxytocin" by Billie Eilish.)

    Summary

    “So, that’s that,” Shelby says. “Consider this me setting boundaries. You know, drawing a line.”

    “Right. And is this line, theoretically, a bit flexible?”

    “Flexible?”

    “Yeah,” Toni says. “Like, could I move the line so I wouldn’t be crossing it if I were to kiss you?”
