    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.

    { or, a modern day bellarke/linctavia au based on sense and sensibility }

    Summary

    Clarke is eight and her knee is bleeding when she first meets Bellamy Blake.
    "Really, her? Can she even skate?" He doesn't even match her gaze, focusing instead on the blood dripping from her skin to the ice.
    -

    Clarke and Bellamy have skated together for 20 years. They've been everything to each other since childhood, from enemies to partners to whatever it is they are now. World champions on the ice, complete messes everywhere else.

    Summary

    She stops, turning towards him so suddenly that he balks, backing up. “I can teach you some figure skating moves.”

    It’s his turn to stare now, barely contained curiosity and anticipation flooding in, all at once. Shaking his head so as to clear it, he crosses his arms over his chest, grounding himself. “What makes you think I want to learn how to do that?”

    Clarke gives a nonchalant jerk of her shoulders at that, launching into a spin so effortless that it renders him speechless for a full minute. “Who doesn’t?”

     

    Clarke Griffin needs a partner. Bellamy Blake just happens to walk into her rink.

    (Or: Bellamy and Clarke as ice dancing partners, training together through the years to the Olympics.)
