    Summary

    “When the nightwash started pouring and wouldn’t stop, Matthew cried for their sleeping mother. Ronan cried for God. Declan Lynch called for the only person he’d ever known whose power might have exceeded his father’s.

    He called for a magician.”

    Adam Parrish can play with time. He can also play with fire, and water, and lightning, and hearts. Ronan Lynch can’t do much, not with the nightwash that clogs his lungs. So when he stumbles into Adam at a Fairy Market, he catches a glimpse of a hopeful future, one told in tarot cards and palmistry, told in crooked smiles and warm hands. But after the first secrets start spilling like black dripping down a nose, Ronan and Adam will learn that the future is not gifted, it’s forged.

    A Fortune Teller AU for the 2021 Reverse Big Bang.

    Summary

    Because civilization is a specific code of social interactions, and because Opal isn't in a dream anymore, civilization has to occur.

    But a year of kindergarten doesn't teach precisely what one had hoped.

    (or: Opal is sent to school)

    Summary

    “I don’t know what you’re expecting,” Laurent says. “I’m not nice.”

     

    “Yeah, that word doesn’t really come to mind when I’m thinking about you.”

     

    Laurent eyes him, unable to pass up the opportunity to fuck with him. “And what words do come to mind?”

     

    “Bitchy,” Damen replies matter-of-factly. “Pedantic. Annoying.” And because Laurent’s apparently not glaring hard enough already, he finishes with, “Nice ass.”

    Laurent needs a fiancé, and Damen's got a score to settle. They'll suit each other's needs nicely.
