    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?”

    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.

    Summary

    There is a man in Martin’s dreams. He couldn’t see this man’s face or hear his voice, he couldn’t even remember his name but Martin remembers the warm contentment that fills him up at the sight of the man. In the dreams, though, he frets at the new boniness the man’s frame has taken to, at the new lines on his face and the burns on his hand oddly shaped like another’s hand. In the dreams, Martin longs to hold that scarred hand, wishing that his own imprint would somehow heal the painful mark away.

    (In the dreams, Martin only has two arms, two hands wishing to hold that man, fold him into his embrace and hide him from all the horrors of the world. In the dreams, Martin feels his heart beating; not wildly but not calmly either, a pulsing finely teetering on the sharp edge of being alive.)

    Summary

    “Tell you what,” Oliver says finally. “You can go if you like. Or you can come back to my flat with me and not have to worry about being human for a bit.”

    Jon stares at him, unblinking, and Oliver scratches the back of his neck. Does he just not--

    “I'm propositioning you. To be clear.”

    “Oh! Oh. Right. I, ah. Right.”

    Christ, he thought Graham was oblivious.

    Summary

    Even if the worst was yet to come, it was hard to care during mornings like this, when everything felt still and quiet. Not the still quietness of a world holding its breath, but the peace of Martin’s warm body brushing against his side as they went through the domestic motions of washing the dishes together.

    Summary

    You're not supposed to pull it out, Martin knows, but he has heard of what happens if your mark hasn't emerged by the time you turn eight, the little dead things that oozes out of the wrist, the red line of the soulmark closing into a gray scar of what could have been.

    (Jon is reading a book when it happens. It's such a gentle pain, unnoticeable really, he only becomes aware of it because some of the blood drops onto the page he's reading.)

    “You know,” Peter says casually, working his trousers open one-handed. “I’ve heard that loss can be an aphrodisiac. Sex after funerals is remarkably common, so you shouldn’t feel like you're doing anything strange.”

    ***

    Martin goes home for the funeral. Peter doesn't leave him alone.

    Summary

    The truth was simple. He did it for a taste, for a lick of that forbidden fruit dropped by the man made aware, made ashamed by the sudden transition from the darkness of ignorance to the enveloping flameless light of sheer understanding. The corrupted flesh of the once hanging fruit and its black seeds, glossy as blood, scraping against his forked tongue stung his senses but oh, how he relished the sour sweetness of knowing.


    Omniscience in a single, choking breath.
