    Summary

    02. At my worst, I worry you’ll realize you deserve better. At my best, I worry you won’t. (I’ve never been better.)

    Failure is a thing that Chase Stein is intimately familiar with. Some people have pets, mantras, touchstones, good luck charms. Some people have methodologies and habits. A few, likely fewer than claim to, have faith. Chase has failure. It feels etched into his bones, burned into his skin, threaded into his hair, and expelled with every breath that he has ever taken. When his heart beats, he thinks that it must surely pump failure through his veins to ensure that it is forever and always ingrained in every part of his body, so deep that he’ll never be free of it. Not really. Even though he has covered it over with this shiny veneer, this lie of being the popular jock, the lacrosse star, the guy that all the girls swoon over–almost all of them but that’s the problem, isn’t it?–the failure is still there under the surface, waiting for someone to scratch the new paint job off and find it waiting, a declaration that he can never run far enough away from because it’s just innately a part of him.

    Summary

    Gert had been obsessing. And not just the normal passionate way she would get when she would start researching a new topic or get into a new show. No this was different. This she couldn’t tell anyone about, and that sheer fact alone was killing her. It was the only thing that would normally keep her from going insane over a certain topic. But this topic was unlike any other. Because this topic happened to be Chase Stein.

    There's not much of an endgame after your parents have you framed for murder. The aftermath of running, or: disaster children trying (failing?) to cope.

    Summary

    She smacked the center of the board and crossed her arms. “We have a real mess here Karolina. Seriously. We could give Glee a run for it’s money, that’s how bad this situation is.” She turned around and took a step back to look at the board. She sighed, then turned to Karolina. “How do you want to go about this? Do you want to concoct a scheme together? Need me to lock you guys in a room together? Wait, no, we need to break her up with Alex first. He’s kind of depressing and prone to game addiction so we probably just need to get him a World of Warcraft subscription.”
     
    “Gert that’s mean. And I don’t want to actively break them up. That’s wrong and I’d feel like a jerk. Like, I’m only okay with her deciding that they should end things on her own.”
     
      Gert nodded. “Jealousy it is."

    "Did you really use a Disney quote to get me to talk to you?!"
    She sniggers as Karolina shrugs with a laugh. "It worked didn't it?"

    Summary

    A few months ago they were living their overly cushioned lives in Brentwood with everything they ever needed on their doorsteps. Now they were on the run from their parents and the law. Nico couldn't believe how quickly everything had changed and now for some reason she seemed to be in charge. Between managing Chase and Alex's arguments, helping Gert control her anxiety, keeping track of Molly and, well her entire thing with Karolina, she had her work cut out for her.

    Essentially just a continuation of where season one left off.

    Summary

    Summary

    “I actually hate you right now. I’m considering making you my official arch-nemesis. I might make t-shirts. And badges.” Gert is standing there, glaring at him. Gert does that a lot, stands there, glares at him. She does it so much that you’d think Chase would be used to it by now, but it always makes his heart jump just a little to know that her attention is focused utterly and completely on him. Even if she is glaring. Even if she is saying mad things that most people would assume don’t bode very well for him.

    Summary

    Every person in the world has a mark upon their skin, a mark that points them to their other half. The mark is gold until a person meets their other half and it turns into a black tattoo.

    But it isn't all that cut and dry. These marks are twisted to define the social order, to divide the populace as much as unite them. Having a soulmark isn't easy when society places restrictions on who you can love or which marks are acceptable.

    Gertrude Yorkes knows her soulmate, but life's a little too complicated for them right now, what with their parents being murders. Karolina Dean has other problems, the least of which being that she has two soulmarks. Chase Stein might be in love with his soulmate...maybe...unless she's not his soulmate...Nico Minoru really wishes her mark wasn't so easily hidden because maybe then she could find her soulmate. And Alex Wilder, well, Alex's found something, something that starts a chain reaction and sends the gang on a journey that will change everything.
