    Summary

    Her Newt is a man of action, not words. He tries, but when words fail, he always falls back on instinct because he’s most fluent in the language of motion. There’s an art to letting him go, she thinks.

    Summary

    Her Newt is sprawled on the iron next to her, sweat darkening the wrists and collar of his shirt. He’s long since given up on any semblance of propriety in favor of comfort, and as the clouds swell and darken overhead, a cool breeze stirs up and the first drops of rain fall, opaquing his shirt. Newt tilts his head back and just breathes.

    Summary

    “I needed that,” Tina says softly, and she catches his eye with a smile. “I think you did too.”

    Newt nods, seeing no need to hide this from her. (He doesn’t hide anything from her anymore, and she’s cradled his heart long enough for him to trust her with it entirely.) “Yes, I did.”

    Summary

    Luke’s the one who says “let’s be in love forever”, because he’s the last one left who’s a little naïve, a little bloody-kneed, a little bit thoughtful about what might come next, and after and after and after.

    “Kid, you won’t even survive long enough for society to judge you,” Han says, cigarettes and coffee, and Leia says nothing.

    He sighed, he certainly wasn't rich. For how much money one person can make, it has to be a lot to last a lifetime, and it has to be a lot more than a lot to last an indefinite number of lifetimes.
    He inhaled noisily and that inevitably brought his attention back to the mirror.
    Young again. For no apparent reason. Right.

    Summary

    There’s a theory that people born from the same star gravitate to each other. It's an ethereal desire so to speak, that pulls Queen Victoria and Lord Melbourne together; a basic and primal want stemmed from atoms demanding to return to each other.

    Summary

    Somewhere deep beneath the night's sea, Theon dreams.

    There is a ship, long and stern and strangely empty. This is the ship he was taken away on. The water crashes over the sides and soaks him through, but it's warm. It's warm up until the moment it hits his skin, then the chill sinks in, his bare feet numb like he's walking on ice, sore like he's walking on Ice. Something is crawling over the bow, reaching for him, something vast and black but not gold, no, glinting silver in the moonlight.

    A Kraken, he thinks and he is not afraid, he should not be afraid. He reaches for it and pulls back. No, let it come to him. He is not afraid.

    Summary

    The sun loved the moon so much, that every night he died to let him breathe. The moon, didn't have eyes to see that sacrifice, since his eyes were glued onto the earth, who he had dedicated his life into revolving around. The earth was a humble thing, appreciated and didn't understand the moon and sun in equal amounts, he didn't even realise he could be found beautiful by something so out-worldly. And yet, he was still dazzled by the stars and would watch her glide past him for the rest of his life.
