    Summary

    Kenny had died again. This wasn't abnormal to him, and no one ever seemed to remember that he died. He was used to waking up in his bed and seeing his friends the next day as if nothing had happened to end his life the day prior. Things continued as if he had just went to bed like everyone else. He was okay with this.

    But after 8 years of deaths that held no weight or consequence, Kenny wakes up in a world where people seem to have forgotten him entirely.

    Summary

    Alexander read of scandals, of men seduced by fame, of sad hearts and tired eyes. He let the words sink into his skin, ink-stained fingertips grasping at the pages for dear life. There was one story he hadn't yet read, though; that of a man with a wide smile and starlight in his bones. He can't help but feel as if it will end in tragedy.

    Summary

    Achilles had longed for the white-hot scorch of exhilaration to burn him from the inside out. He lived on the adrenaline— the power— the pure godliness one felt on a now-empty battlefield, triumphant under a blazing sun. But, then there was calm; humanity, even. Then there was Patroclus, and everything seemed alright again. The blood was washed away, the sun set and the moon made an appearance, the suffocating air grew still and quiet— peaceful. With Patroclus, there was a hope for peace, for humanity.

    Summary

    Giddean Danu shook his head, doubt plainly written across his dark face. “If we are to openly oppose the Chancellor, we need the support of the Jedi. We need their moral authority. Otherwise, what do we have?”

    “The moral authority of the Jedi, such as it is,” Bana Breemu said, “has been spent lavishly upon war; I fear they have none left for politics.”

    “One Jedi, then,” Padmé offered to the others. At least let me speak the truth to my love. At least. Please, she pleaded with them silently. “There is one Jedi—one whom I truly know all of us can trust absolutely …”

    Her voice trailed off into appalled silence when she realized that she wasn’t talking about Anakin.

    Summary

    There is no single person in the world that is made for any other single person in the world, even if the ink in their veins wills it otherwise, but Evan is different, Evan is special, Evan is something else.

    Evan can make leaves fall, winds howl, skies thunder, and branches snap when he pleases. Evan prefers to lie in the grass and watch the clouds race each other for his amusement. Evan prefers to watch the grass grow before his very eyes. Evan prefers to open his mouth, standing in the rain, ready to taste the rain on his tongue.

    Summary

    From a prompt from Pragnificent.

    Prompt: Fire - Will and Hannibal.

    -------------------------

    Prometheus was the Titan who first gave fire to humanity.

    Hannibal had always looked at Will and seen fire. It flashed behind his eyes from the first time Hannibal met him, peeking out between the bars of the terror Will tried to cage it with.

    Now he saw Prometheus, too.
