RapidashPatronus

Himeno, from the anime Pretear, is laughing in an attempt at carefree jollity in the foreground. Behind her, huge and red and furious, is her true self, brandishing a broken chairleg.

    Summary

    He lies in the dark, remembering with a brilliant vividness the young woman walking away from him, her straight back, swinging hips, sweet beauty going into the dark. He’s there now in the depths of darkness and it still isn’t over. He wonders how long it truly takes to die. His breathing seems to be quite steady, and the pain has vanished. So there’s that at least. Interesting to know. Dying, in these final stages; not painful...

    Summary

    Fingers skate across skin, just the barest hint of contact and rough scrape of calluses over flesh that’s never seen a day’s work - hip skin, rib skin, skin that’s spent its life under cover, until clothes are peeled away and gooseflesh ripples across that shy skin. Whispers of question and affirmation follow the path of the fingers, spilled bits of sound caressing downwards and filling the darkness.

    She looks up, the dim light catching in her eyes and shining out like twin stars. His fingers advance, still only skimming, afraid to put pressure lest it becomes real, and her eyes drift closed momentarily. His name drips from her lips and he is lost.

    * Oneshot! Loosely set after the Death Star is destroyed and they are celebrating, Cassian and Jyn fall into each other, right where they're supposed to be.

    Summary

    “Come here,” he says softly, there’s a coarseness to his voice that Jyn can never quite place. They shuffle upright, arms wound and Cassian’s face buried in her neck. Jyn grazes a kiss to his cheek, his scent of ash and rain. She kisses again- this time to the corner of his mouth- feels the twitch of his lips as he smiles.

    Summary

    She may not have the words to say it, or trust herself enough to say them, but she does trust some things. She trusts the way he holds her, his embrace certain and warm, and she trusts the way she reaches for him, knowing he will be there. She trusts the way they tangle together, and the words that do spill from his mouth when nobody else can hear. She trusts the way they move in sync, and without speaking – she, who has never felt comfortable with speeches, feels something like comfort at last.

    Somehow, that makes it more difficult to keep – whatever this is – secret.
