    Summary

    Iris Black is dead.

    Long live Iris Black.

    //
    For years, the lab was all he had. The rare gentle touches were his cravings. The instances in which he could get drunk and forget he was locked in, a lab rat in a cage. Coming and feeling satisfied, for once. Stray cats wandering near his only window, peeking their nose in and meowing loudly. Those placid treats, in his monotone gray - he misses them.

    Lillium’s hand curls around his, strong but with a loose enough grip that he could shake it off if he so wished.

    Instead, he grips tighter.

    He might not be able to reach out, but now, Lillium can do it for him.

    Iris isn’t letting go.

    Summary

    Lillium pivots, puts one hand at his elbow and the other over his mouth, and backs him up against the alley wall.

    Or: Back in Washington State Lab, Lillium told Iris to let him distract the glitch if cornered. Iris does not.

    Summary

    Iris thinks that maybe Lillium doesn't like him as much as much as he likes Lillium. Or maybe they're both just dense.

    Summary

    Iris's calloused fingers gently trace the brush strokes, his touch so feather-light that he can barely even feel the paint.

    Iris has fallen in love with a painting.

    Summary

    “Oh my god,” Sera whispers, her voice hushed and secretive. She leans closer towards Begonia, clutching her arm. Her eyes are wide. “Do you see that?”

    Begonia glances away from the blackboard for a second, frowning. “What?”

    “Look.” She extends a manicured fingernail in the direction of the back of the class, pointing accusatorily. Begonia’s eyes follow it by instinct.

    The only thing she can remark on is Iris shuffling and shifting on his seat from time to time, wincing awkwardly. Lillium rubs his back comfortingly. “I don’t get it.”

    “It’s Lillium White,” Sera enunciates every syllable, drawing out the sounds and fluttering her eyelashes. “Lillium White, captain of the baseball team, hottest guy in the school?”
    / Or, the High School AU in which Lillium is a jock, Iris is a nerd, and they totally not, absolutely aren't dating.

    Summary

    Iris and Lillium dance around each other figuratively (this involves poetry recitations, sexual tension, and breakfast food), and then literally.

    Summary

    WARNING TO CTC AUDIENCES: THIS CONTENT IS HIGHLY GRAPHIC AND NOT FOR UNDERAGE AUDIENCES

    Lillium and Iris finally get out of Seattle, and their move down to the camp Lillium's been talking about ends up being far more difficult and eventful than either of them anticipate.

    Summary

    Iris sits on the toilet seat as Lillium undresses.

    There’s a certain grace to Lillium’s movements that Iris could never imitate, something primal and effortless which catches his attention immediately. Iris can see it when Lillium’s walking ahead; while he talks to important people at the camp and they all stop to listen; during times when their lives are in danger. He’s strong, swift, effective.

    That’s all gone now.

    Lillium is smiling as he takes off his shirt, struggling with the buttons. His fingers are shaking too bad to be useful, though. It doesn’t help that every five seconds, he stops to kiss Iris again, a stupid grin on his face.

    Iris shouldn’t feel as giddy as he does when Lillium’s useless because of him. But he does.

    (Iris shouldn’t feel a lot of things for Lillium, but there’s just no helping it. It’s Lillium.)

    Summary

    Lillium smiles, radiant. Very carefully, he presses their foreheads together. His lips are shining with Iris’s saliva. “Cool. Rad. Gonna get that magnum dong.”

    “Oh my god, Lillium,” Iris breathes, laughing despite himself. In revenge, Lillium plasters his lips against his clavicle, sucks gently and causes ripples down his spine. Iris clings to pink hair, just a bit, to get his bearings back. Lillium is… he’s just distracting. Iris has never been so out of it during sex before. He’s always been good at controlling the action.This is...new. “You are so lame at dirty talk.”

    “And yet.” Lillium smirks. “You’re still here.”

    “Yeah,” Iris whispers, afraid to consider why that might be. Terrified to think of what it means for him. “Yeah, White, I’m here.”

    Summary

    "Lillium looks at him while they’re in a shared class, his gaze warming up the back of his neck to the degree that his whole body feels hot. Lillium looks at him while they’re eating together in the Great Hall, laughing whenever he gets mashed potato on his nose (it’s not his fault forks are hard, okay?), and it’s so fond it makes his breath escape him. Lillium looks at him while they’re in the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade, eyes turning shades darker the moment he leans forward to wipe the butterbeer foam from his lips. Lillium’s looked at him since they were kids, a familiar gaze tingling the back of his neck, keeping him safe.

    Lillium just… he’s always looking."
