    Summary

    The only constant in Taako's long life (there is static were his age should be in his head and that makes sense because it has been too many years since he has celebrated his birthday) is the rainbow of colors on his skin that means someone out there loves him. The fact that he shares pain with six other people barely phases him at this point when something happens to one of them. Mostly they just fade in and out existence like bruises and cuts as he lives his life knowing that somewhere the owners of these colors are waiting to welcome him home.

    The thought jars Taako every time he has it. Taako has never had home and doubts he could ever find one.

    Summary

    Let's follow this through to its logical conclusion. Taako was born to die.

    'It' is used as a pronoun for a sentient, thinking person who doesn't prefer that pronoun in a short part of this fic, because shit gets fucked up for a bit. Be safe kiddos. Let me know if you need a more specific warning.

    Summary

    "Taako starts to cough. It’s soft at first, the sound muffled by his sleeve, and he waves off the questioning glances Lup flashes him as they prep dinner for that night. By the end of the meal, he’s out of breath, and Lup feels dread pool in her stomach. She knows that if the wagon-driver finds out, they'll be thrown out onto the street without a second glance. She doesn't know what to do."

    There's a sickness going around, a fever that can kill within a few weeks if left untreated. Taako falls ill, and Lup knows there's not enough money to get him the treatment he needs. Luckily for them, a kind apothecary's assistant is willing to help them out.

    Summary

    Summary

    Sleepovers are for secrets, truth or dare, and late night whispers that spill into the next morning. If you're in middle school, that is.

    But when you're an adult aboard an inter-dimensional space ship traveling through planar systems, sometimes sleepovers are just a way to remind you of your humanity. A way to work through the nightmares that follow watching people you care about die time and time again. A way to strengthen your bonds.

    A way to be close to your crush.
