    Summary

    When a magician comes into their magic, they gain the ability to communicate with their soulmate. From the time they turn eleven, any message they write on their skin ends up on the skin of their soulmate. There are rules, as magic always has: only they can write to their soulmate and they can’t reveal their names to each other until they turn 18.

    Losing a soulmate connection is practically unheard of. When Simon Snow suddenly loses his, he knows just who to blame: it must be the doing of his ever-scheming roommate.

    For Baz Pitch, losing his soulmate is really just an inevitable side-effect of being a vampire. It confirms, once and for all, that he is a monster. After all, how can one still have a soulmate if they no longer have a soul?

    Summary

    I'd give him all that I am.
    I'd give him all that I was.
    I'd open up a vein.

    I'd tie our hearts together, chamber by chamber.

    Simon and Baz have been through a lot. They've also been hard at work on communicating their needs and feelings. Here's some (therapeutic) smut.

    This is a fic about navigating identity in a liminal space, being a home for the people you love, and finding a way to accept yourself, even when you don't know who you are.

    Summary

    “Please don’t make a thing of it,” Agatha says, turning toward us and shaking her hands in the air to dry her nails. “Simon, I can do yours too if you want. Then you can match.”

     

    I frown down at my hands. Magic forced the World of Mages to accept that I’m trans, but I try to avoid anything that will give people ways to poke holes at my identity. Concessions to femininity feel like chinks in my armor. But the varnish is nice. Agatha’s nails are always a shade of pink and primly shaped. Baz’s black varnish just made him look cooler. Penny reaches out and takes my hand. Her nails are a light purple now, but she’s always trying new bright colors.

     

    “Anyone can paint their nails,” Penelope repeats. “Even boys.”
    --

    Baz paints his nails. Simon makes a thing of it.
