    Summary

    “Play another,” Clint said eventually.

    “Okay,” Tasha answered. She picked up the guitar, caressed it like a lover, except Clint knew know that her hands were a little rougher than they seemed. Her fingers plucked at the strings, her shoulders drooped down again, and then her voice rose, musty and sweet, the kind of voice he could die listening to.

    She sang Blackbird like it was hers, and Clint thought that The Beatles must have known she was coming, that they surely had written this song with her in mind the same way Clint had started writing song after song with only her face behind his eyelids.

    Summary

    Karolina doesn’t think Nico deserves all the ragging she’s getting for her heavily gothic look and dark, threatening eyeliner.

    If they had wanted Nico to lighten up, spread some color, Karolina was more than happy to share.

    After all, it did come out through her fingertips.

    Summary

    Schooling her features, Emori turns. “Can I help you?”

    If he’s taken aback by the tattoo on her face or the shape of her deformed left hand, he doesn’t show it. Emori will give him credit for not even flinching.

    “I actually wanted to introduce myself.” He extends a hand to her. Behind him, Raven and Harper stop their work to stare, and Bellamy closes his book and sits up a little straighter in the armchair. “I’m Murphy.” He seems to catch himself. “John Murphy. I’m opening the bakery down the street.”

    Summary

    "Every morning the maple leaves.
    Every morning another chapter where the hero shifts
    from one foot to the other. Every morning the same big
    and little words all spelling out desire, all spelling out:
    You will be alone always and then you will die."

    After leaving an abusive relationship, Murphy moves into his best friend's house. He's fine, really. Their new roommate comes with more than enough baggage of her own.

    (A Memori college AU)

    Title and excerpts from Litany in Which Certain Things Are Crossed Out by Richard Siken.
