    Summary

    I passed 250 followers on Tumblr this week (this is a big milestone, stfu), and since my WIPs are all over the place right now I thought I’d do Six Sentence Sunday a little differently this time.

    Summary

    Bifurcation - (n.) the splitting of a main body into two parts.

    In medicine, a single mistake can mean the difference between life and death.

    For cardiothoracic surgeon Charles Xavier, a fatal error leaves him standing at a crossroads ... and at the mercy of the man he has not faced since their relationship fell apart thirteen months ago.

    Dr. Erik Lehnsherr has a fearsome reputation. Due to his incisive autopsy reports, he has gotten more surgeons fired in two years than any other pathologist has managed over an entire career. But when an old enemy returns to Erik’s life, he must find a way to temper his pride -- or lose the man he loves, all over again.

    Summary

    The first thing he does when he gets to his office, smarting from the needle and high on endorphins, is email the crazy mathematician in Cambridge, the other Cambridge a non-creature-infested ocean away, with whom he’d been corresponding for a while and whom his colleagues have begun to call Newt’s Internet Boyfriend.

    Hermann, Newton types, tell me you’ve crawled out from under your rock for long enough to realize your disdain for monster movies is now scientifically invalid.

    Please don’t call me that, Gottlieb writes back. I’m already working on it.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I'm beginning to worry for your general well-being, Hermann texts with an air of hesitation.

    "Newt," Tendo is saying, distantly, but it registers with about the same amount of import as Newton's shot-glass hitting the floor and the dizzy whirl of the top bunk in Newton's field of vision as he tilts onto his back. He's clutching his phone to his chest, he's thinking—

    "Sure, dude," he says, closing his eyes, curling onto his side at the pang of nausea that grips him sharp and sudden. "You'd take care of me if you were here, wouldn't you. Wouldn't you."

    Newton feels Genji's hand come to rest gently on his shoulder, tugging and rolling him till he's cradled against Genji's chest and Whisper is shouting at Tendo about what a motherfucking reckless moron he is and Miranda is rapidly babbling something in Tendo's defense.

    "Who would?" Genji whispers, shaking Newton urgently. "Come on, stay with me. Who?"

    Just then, answering is a moot point; Newton's vomiting on Tendo's pillows, and it is gross.

    "Hermann," he chokes anyway, wiping his mouth on the back of his hand, and Genji sighs.
    ______________

    "I could've told you the ugly truth any time you wanted to hear it," Tendo says. "Newt's a motherfucking lightweight no matter which way you hash it. He barfed on my bed once."

    Hermann feels a surge of protectiveness so overwhelming and instinctive that he's got an arm loosely, awkwardly around Newton's shoulders before he can consider the consequences. "Your goading, Officer Choi, has had a very great deal to do with it over the years," he says tartly.

    Mako is busy pouring two more shots, one for herself and one for Aleksis, but she's listening.

    Tendo shrugs and takes the bottle when Mako's finished, pouring himself another shot; he raises his glass in their midst and sighs. "To the end of the world as we know it," he says.

    Hermann can feel Newton shaking against his neck; his laughter has subsided into quiet, labored breaths, and Hermann can tell he's fighting off nausea or worse. "Breathe, Newton. Please."

    "I always knew you'd take care of me," Newton whispers in Hermann's ear. "Just like you said."

    Sasha is regarding Hermann and Newton with strange, haunted light in her eyes. She salutes.

    Oh, darling, Hermann wants to whisper, but he keeps his mouth firmly closed. I wish I could.
    ______________
    It takes Hermann twenty minutes of wandering, from empty laboratory to reveler-infested refectory to empty Jaeger bays, to locate Newton seated on the steps leading up to his own dormitory door with the recording device clutched in his right hand. He straightens his spine, lifts his head, and glances at Hermann. Just as he'd promised, he's listened to it; there's no other possible explanation for his red-rimmed eyes and the shaky set of his mouth. "You meant what you said," he states as Hermann takes a seat beside him.

    "I've said a number of things today that I've meant," Hermann replies. "Which?"

    Newton shakes his head, rewinds the feed, and plays it back for Hermann. The whole process takes less than five minutes, so there's no telling how many times he's managed to listen to it in the time that it's taken Hermann to locate him.

    "You sound terrified," he says quietly. "And here I just blew you off before I went—"

    "Newton, I did not convey my emotions with any measure of accuracy," Hermann sighs.

    Newton's arm is around him again before he knows what's happening, and it's easy, startlingly easy, to turn his head so their cheeks are pressed together for a long, breathtaking moment until Newton turns his head, Hermann turns his, and their foreheads touch. Newton jerks slightly just as Hermann's pulse stutters. "Then you care," he says, almost in a whisper. "I mean, you—you seriously do."

    "Yes, I do," Hermann agrees, and feels his world begin, gloriously, to crumble. "In so many words, and in so many more besides."

    Summary

    Nine unconnected ficlets. Featuring Charlie Brooker, Victoria Coren, David Mitchell et al. in scenes (very) loosely based on Pulp songs. Nothing quite like playing out the stories of a working class boy from Sheffield with a load of Guardian columnists.

    “Well, I prefer someone who would take better care of herself”, Tom snapped.
    “What on earth do you mean? She is quite lovely. Very pretty eyes and such a darling nature.”
    “From what I have seen I cannot fault her eyes”, Tom explained, “but I have no desire to date anyone who has such little self-control to allow herself to balloon into such a state.”

    Summary

    Cambridge, 1936

    Louis William Tomlinson is the son of an English Lord.
    Marquis of Buccleuch and Queensberry and the Earl of Doncaster.

    Conquer some anonymous guy and have some anonymous sex: that's his tradition to inaugurate the academic year.
    Usually he chose a boor in the slums, and even if they are all queers , they exude masculinity from every flap of skin.
    But sometimes, something goes wrong.

    ‘I had just be screwed by a stranger.
    In all senses.
    With all senses.
    And I was laughing.’

     

    'Some smiles can took your breath away.
    He, with his smile, can took your life.
    Right after it ‘s no longer yours. '

     

    ‘With one caress I give you what others can't have in a lifetime.
    They let me forgot the nights, you let me forgot the days.’

     

    'He gave me his body by clung to mine.
    He loved with sweetness I did not think existed.
    His eyes were dew, his voice the rustle of silk.’

     

    'There is no corner around the world ,where what we are will be forgiven.'
    'Then why did you ask me to believe in fairy tales?'
    'Because maybe Wonderland is not where but when.'
