    Summary

    It is 1979, and Barty and Benjy discuss their shared pessimism for their futures, for the futures of other men and women like them. At night, they drink to intoxication and sleep in a tangle on Benjy's mattress, trying anything just to forget, to feel some kind of hope. Benjy gives Barty the silver ring, charmed to go perpetually unnoticed, and Barty gets Benjy a matching one in gold. Trading rings isn't much at all, but it's the only thing that Barty and Benjy have.

    Summary

    There are times we dream of something different. Something amazing and shockingly real. Yet it isn’t called a ‘dream’. Because somehow, the life retold isn’t yours. Instead, it’s someone else’s- your Pair’s.

    These “dreams” are called Flares. And for all his life, John Watson longed to have one. So when he finally does, it doesn’t take long for him to realize there’s something very, very wrong.

    Summary

    It's been five months, and at last, Pekoyama awakens from her coma. But her reunion with Kuzuryuu is anything but a fairytale ending. Gripped by confusion and haunted by despair, the two have more pressing issues at hand than romance. With their peers beside them, in flesh and in spirit, they must come to grips with what they've done, both in and out of the simulation.

    Summary

    The one who was mentally Hajime reacted first, his teeth clenching in shock— Nagito realised that must be how he looks when he gets frustrated— and grabbed Nagito from the front of the shirt— Hajime’s shirt, but not Hajime’s at the same time—, pulling him forward with a strength the other had no idea he had.

    In truth, Nagito would have laughed at his own pitiful expression and irate tone, but since it was Hajime who was orchestrating them, it really wasn't that amusing at all.

    ”What the Hell are you doing in my body?!”

    --

    Title inspired by Closure in Moscow.
