    Summary

    "I always pictured people like a candle's light: only living to outshine others.

    But Marco wasn't like that. He lived for others; he burned for others. And that's why he burned the brightest, out of all the others. He burned the boldest, and bravest.

    Until his flame died out."

    Jeanmarco week, day 4: Candlelight.

    Summary

    "Networking of neurons creates pathways for distributing information in the human brain. Mycelial nets share this same architecture." -- Paul Stamets, Mycelium Running

    Sherlock Holmes keeps a book in his head cataloguing all of the dead things he has ever seen; insects curled in poison jars, broken-winged birds and hedgehogs with fly-hollowed eyes. Mycroft keeps books in his head, too, but Sherlock knows that they are filled with different things.

    Summary

    Sometimes Makoto wants to talk about the future, and Haruka will not have any of it, but it’s nice to know that they’re both still unsure about things. They are the sun and moon, still wandering about under the same sky. It’s what Haruka tells himself anyway, until it hurts too much to think about him.

    This is a tale in which Haruka and Makoto have a falling out, but the sentiment is still there, two years later.
