    Summary

    “Can I have that back?” Jon asks, stupidly holding his hand out, like a child demanding candy. The person is still in shadow, even though Jon's fairly certain that based on his lifetime of experience with light, they shouldn’t be.

    “Depends,” they say, and closer, Jon hears the hitch in their breathing. Something’s wrong with them, and Jon really should leave them to whatever it is. “Can I have a cigarette?”

    (An AU where Jon meets Gerry while he's in uni)

    Summary

    And for a second he can hear the door sing and it’s so jarring and nonsensical and, seemingly out of nothing, from it spills a man. Weak and shaky and holding onto the neon frame like he’s holding onto his damn dear life.

    “Can anyone tell me what year it is?” The man asks and then immediately collapses. The door closes behind him and then it’s just. Gone. Like it had never been there in the first place. Maybe it hadn’t.

    Tim shakes his head as if shaking off the door’s existence and then immediately exclaims in horror “is that Jon!?”

    Jon scoffs. “Well, Tim, seeing how I’m literally right here—”

    Summary

    Do you know what hunger looks like? It's the collage of constricted irises against the light and the slick blood on your hands that fail to satiate you. Hunger is the glint of the blade that misses its target, the wide 'o' the mouth makes in silent terror as air rushes out and water plunges in. Hunger is a time lapse of supple skin turning into a dry, gnarly one not unlike the bark of a beloved once fertile orange tree.

    And we do, listeners, we make our statements and face our fears, because we are afraid of what he'll do to us otherwise.

     

    Welcome to Night Vale.)
