    Summary

    It's been seven years since former best friends Jamie and Dani graduated high school. Seven years since their friendship fell apart as they parted ways to very different futures. Seven years they've seen each other only when Dani's back in their hometown for Christmas. Only this year, Dani’s recovering from the loss of Eddie and coming to terms with what her life might have been, had she made different choices, and Jamie is faced with some bittersweet choices of her own.

    I got fucked up by listening to ‘tis the goddamn season’ too many times and couldn’t get this story out of my head.

    OR

    I didn't think I could/would ever write angsty smut, but apparently I could and indeed, would.

    I was also surprised to learn that this one wanted to be written from Jamie's perspective. So much discovery here, ha!

    This was supposed to be a one-shot but I seem incapable of those, and the words just keep coming. Likely just two chapters, with plenty of smutty goodness in the second. [ETA: At least three chapters, dammit.]

    Thanks for coming along for the ride.

    Summary

    It’s May of 1988. A week in the High Sierra marks Dani and Jamie’s last major adventure before fully dedicating themselves to The Leafling. On the way east from San Francisco, Jamie picks up a field notebook on a whim. Evidently, she has something important to articulate about her companion. Through the dense evergreen spires and majestic granite cliffs springs a new river that shall carry and quench them through the rest of their lives. Jamie need only drink from it.

    (Or, how Jamie realises she’s in love.)

    Summary

    Lovemaking, Dani realizes, is rarely one discrete event. Rather, it is the befores, afters, in-betweens, and almosts strung together into one cohesive continuum that informs and sustains intimacy.

    (Thirteen years of a loving relationship, built, explored, and cherished.)

    Summary

    Dani stares into the calla lilies, admiring the contrast of ivory spathes suddenly blushing deep violet around the spadices delicately protruding from their cores. They’re a bashful sight; shy, secret, and vulnerable. Yet completely hopeful — even from the protective embrace of their gentle petal sheaths — for a chance to proliferate. Affection and yearning coil like a mass of vines through Dani’s chest as she thinks, in awe, about how incapable they are of hurting anyone.
