    Summary

    The crown rests heavy on top of his head, eight pounds of gold encrusted with emeralds and rubies and a thousand tons of responsibility and duty. He can feel its edge digging painfully into the skin of his forehead, can already sense some of his curls getting hopelessly tangled around the prongs. He forces himself to hold still, understanding the importance and uniqueness of this moment.

    He is the first ever king not descended from royal blood. The first king to usurp the previous before his death, and banish him for crimes of inhumanity performed against his people. He is twenty-two years old, and the streets whisper his name.

    “Bellamy Blake,” Marcus Kane, his mentor and first advisor, intones, “King of Polis, Lord of the Stars and Protector of the Earth, you may rise.”

    Summary

    “I’ll be fine,” she muttered, shaking her head as she opened the front door. And, there the body was, right where it fell. The others rushed in behind her. Raven took the trophy toward the kitchen, probably to wash it off. Monty and Bellamy moved toward the body, and she could see that Bellamy was thinking about using the rug to wrap him up in.

    There was no way in hell that all five of them were going to get away with this.

    Summary

    She misses him the way she would miss a sense or a body part; she misses him like something that was always a part of her, even though, realistically, she’d only known him for four years compared to the rest of her life. She misses him like something vital she’d never considered what it would be like to be without until suddenly she was.

    Summary

    Arkport was just like every other small, rich town in Cape Cod: winding roads lined with picket fences wrapped in vines and surrounded by geraniums that separated the yards of houses that were small in size but outrageous in price. The town center was just two intersections with a convenience store, a mom’n’pop ice cream shop, a no doubt overpriced art gallery, and a handful of cafes and sandwich shops whose pun-filled ocean-themed names made both Blake siblings roll their eyes.

    “This is hell, this is hell,” Octavia sung under her breath.

    “It’s just for the summer,” Bellamy said to reassure her, and maybe himself too.

    With their house foreclosed on, the Blake siblings don't have much choice other than to take up Marcus Kane on his offer to let them stay at his home on Cape Cod for the summer. At first Arkport doesn't seem like a place they'll ever fit in, but soon they find themselves pulled into the fabric of the town. And as the days get hotter, they also find themselves discovering how it takes a mix of sense and sensibility to weather the ups and downs of love, as well as its loss.

    Summary

    "It had been six years and three months since she’d seen her friends. Two thousand, two hundred and seventy seven days since they’d blasted off. Two thousand, two hundred and seventy seven days since she’d known they were alive."

    "He’d survived those six long years in space to die six minutes after landing. If he’d been able to laugh at that stage, he probably would. Because what else could you do but laugh when faced with that sort of situation? That sort of shitty luck?"

    "Finding the doors to the bunker sealed had not gone down well. They worked day and night, trying to find a way out. They may just scrape it to seven years, if they were lucky, but nobody wanted to get that far."

    They were one people, forged from the many, until the Earth had one last attempt at wiping them out. After six long years, they are finally all in a position to come back together.

    But life hasn't finished with them yet. They have to deal with reentry, a blocked door and the release of six years of loneliness before they can finally just be themselves again.

    Or, a season 5 speculative fic that explores the reunion of Wonkru, Clarke and the Space Squad. And all that comes with it.
