    Summary

    There’s the quiet moment between them- the kind that they share more often than not, in which they manage to have entire conversations without having to open their mouths to form actual, coherent words- and is broken by the crumbling of Levi’s stoic façade, a welcome invasion to the adoration and pure love in his eyes. “Hello,” He says around a smile, the corners of his eyes crinkling a little and the corners of his moth curling deliciously around the word.

    Summary

    Panic! At the Disco split up years ago, Ryan and Jon forming ‘The Young Veins’ while Brendon and Spencer continued keeping Panic! alive. They’d been going out for 4 years when Ryan decided he wanted to continue Panic! with a more psychedelic-rock sound, as in Pretty.Odd., when Brendon wanted to return to a sound as in 'A Fever...'. Their split then occurred as Brendon and Ryan’s affair tipped them over the edge of coping, with both parties fighting incessantly and occasionally going days without speaking. But when they meet again, in 2013, what will they think of one another? How will they act around the other, and will they be able to stay friends? It'll undoubtedly be an interesting journey.

    Summary

    He felt good. He was content, there, right there, with Eren and the steaming water coming down onto his back, reassuring him that yes, this is reality, and yes, he is alive and well and happy and there’s no reason for bad things to come into his thoughts like they have over the last week. He knows, for a fleeting and memorable moment, that he’s worth it, and he deserves to be happy mainly because there’s someone right here who loves him enough to give him a second chance he so desperately needed.

    Summary

    “It deals with the biggest mistake we all make which is dwelling on the past instead of just making strides towards the future. All too often we get stuck spinning our wheels trying to fix things without ever realising how much life is passing us by because we’ve forgotten how much there is to just look forward to.” –Jonas Brothers

    Summary

    The shallow end is where one can see straight to the bottom, straight to the heart of every activity and every intention. It's where there is no space to hide anything; even kicked up dust settles before long. He hates it, hates it, hates it and yet here he is, perilously exposed and utterly out of control.

    Summary

    "Interlacing mosaics of mycelium infuse habitats with with information-sharing membranes. [...] These networks not only survive, but sometimes expand to thousands of acres in size, achieving the greatest mass of any individual organism on the planet. [...] 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.
