    Summary

    It was a simple, innocent, gesture. That at some point got lost in translation between pages of fake breasts and innocent, open mouths, and now Yosuke’s hands are shaking, with both need and nervousness, as he grips the crumpled magazine with one hand, and his cell phone with the other.

     

    The phone rings again. Loud, and shrill, jarring him out of his half hazed thoughts as he licks his lips and curses his own stupidity under his breath. He counts the seconds between each ring, hoping to bring himself down enough to successfully convince himself of what an ass he’s being and actually follow through with hanging up the phone and throwing away the mail. But somewhere within the two and three second mark, between the next series of rings, the line clicks and goes quiet, and suddenly someone is breathing quietly on the other end, and Yosuke’s heart is beating so quickly that he almost wonders if he should be calling an ambulance instead.

     

    “What’s your name?”

    Summary

    You’ll never get to know how many times you watched the child shrink from the back of the tour group. You’ll never get to know how many times you noticed them, how many times your thoughts lingered on them, how many times a terrible, instinctual clarity and worry formed in your gut. You’ll never get to know how many times you convinced yourself that someone else would do something.

    You’ll only know this one time, when you saw a too-small child step too close to the edge of a cavernous drop, and you decided to interfere.

     

    The Bystander Effect dictates that the more people that are present to an emergency situation, the less likely it is that anyone will step up and do something unprompted.

     

    Or, In Which You're Not Sure How You Wound Up The Heroine For A Magic-Based RPG Full Of Time Travelling Bullshit, But This Is Your Life Now.

    Summary

    Character POVs, drabbles, and background stories for my main fic 'These are our Days'. All this stuff is canon to the main story, but doesn't fit in there or doesn't follow the reader POV so it's published here instead.
    Most of this probably won't make much sense unless you've read that fic. Full of spoilers. Please mind the tags.

    Summary

    Two days ago, you said goodbye to your best friend. Yesterday, you lost your job with no prior notice. And then today, you had a fight with your mom. So that’s your day today. Lonely, fighting with your mom, jobless. Perfect Day for a drink or two, right? What's that on TV about monsters?

    You didn't expect the monsters to accept that application for a social media job you sent them while you were drunk. Now you've suddenly moved to Ebott and spend your days hanging out with monsters, documenting your weird new life, and marvelling at how different monsters and humans can be - and how similar.

    Summary

    Monsters have been on the Surface for nearly two years. Despite this, you haven't really changed. You still focus on keeping your daughter safe and happy in between your Seeing appointments.

    That all changes when you encounter monsters for the first time. It's a good change.
