    Summary

    It's a queer hurt, almost like the relief of peeling off an old scab, to feel her heart pulling in three separate directions, and to feel it expanding to encompass the whole damn rest of the compass rose rather than be so fragile as to rip itself asunder. Anne never would have thought, before, that she'd be this fucking caring. That she'd had such a deep well of love waiting untapped within her, way down.

    Summary

    “That's what everyone always says. It's whispered again and again, a myth perpetuated until everyone accepts it as truth, until nobody even dares to find out if it was ever founded in reality or only in fear. Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes truth. Nobody ever leaves here. You can't win this war. The Empire is inevitable.” James paused and let his eyes wander over the fields that surrounded them, the guards chatting to each other in the shade, the labourers sharing water. “Maybe they're right about the Empire, but they're not right about this place.”

    Summary

    That smile grows, and Thomas shall never find the strength to disentangle himself now, so he holds on all the tighter – three months, three months stranded with only the memory of James's face, God only knows how he survived. But no matter. Now that he's home, Thomas intends nothing less than to reclaim each and every intimacy the sea stole from them.

    Summary

    Somehow, the idle conversation between the Get Down Brothers turns to soulmarks. The smoke from the joints they’re passing around is colored with their voices, reds and blues, sunset orange and deep indigo.

    Zeke, of course, shows off the loopy cursive Mylene Cruz on his arm, grinning. The others show theirs, girls' names in dark letters against dark skin. Shao reveals that he doesn’t have one—that way he can love all the ladies, he laughs. Dizzee can see the lie in his eyes, but he's not sure any of the others see it.

    “What about you, Dizz?” Shao asks, and Dizzee freezes.

    “What about me?”

    “What’s your mark say?”
