    Summary

    That’s what this is, it is electric. Charged. Alight and alive, glowing in the dark. He and Devi, it seems, are like something nocturnal— they’re sharp and pointed and awake during the day, yes, but there are layers to their relationship, and it seems to Ben, that the only time they are able to peel them back is in the dark.

    Someone bumps into Devi and she crashes into him, colliding like a meteor into the Earth, and he catches her. She rights herself, still pressed against him, and there is a moment in between her looking up at him, and the song ending, that Ben is certain he is going to kiss her.

    -

    OR; five times Ben realizes Devi is beautiful and the one time she realizes he is beautiful, too

    Summary

    It has become a habit, she realizes. To climb into Ben’s bed, to see him.

    It started in grade school, the week she stayed over at his house and was tormented with nightmare after nightmare after nightmare.

    And now, eight years later and three thousand miles away from home, she still seeks him out, still looks for him in the darkness. Even if it only requires slipping out of her bed and crawling into his, next door.

    She seeks warmth, seeks something to fill the aching loneliness that festers in her heart, late at night, like an open wound. It has become a habit, an instinct, really, to seek him out.

    Devi expects this to become a lot more complicated than it does.

     

    or; five times devi falls asleep in ben’s bed, and the one time he falls asleep in hers

    Summary

    “So you believe—just because we’re soulmates, doesn’t mean we’ll fall in love.”

    He looks at her, and she gets the sensation he is carefully choosing his words, wondering how exactly to tear out her heart. “Yeah.”

    Devi bites her tongue to stave off the thousands of questions that leap to her tongue. “What’s the whole point of it, then? To have soulmates, to have enemies, if nothing is sure?”

    (what is the point in loving you if there is no guarantee that you will love me back?)

     

    or; devi has the same name on both her wrists. it's only natural things get complicated

    Summary

    He answers. “Hey, buddy, how you doing?”

    “Tony, I, uh—okay, don’t be mad at me—”

    Tony hears people talking in the background, sort of talking over each other in firm tones.

    Never good, when a conversation with Peter starts that way.

    His heart rattles.

    “Where are you?” Tony asks, feeling deadly serious all of a sudden. “What’s wrong?”

    “I—I have been arrested in Canada,” Peter says, a little loud.
