It's warm and bright outside. The sun shines unobstructed by white clouds in an azure-blue sky, and the green grass rustles softly in the whisper-breeze.
You're not outside. You sit on your bed facing the window, laptop on the rumpled covers beside you. It's the first week of summer and you're not out with friends laughing or on your phone talking. It's not because they don't want to - your friends asked you to hang out with them a few days ago but you declined - it's because you just… aren't in the mood, you said. They had given you knowing glances.
A little thing I did almost half a year ago.
Vlad Putin moves in the neighbourhood and Barack has a crush.
Also, does Vlad like him too?!

“From the stain on your collar I assume you drink, but if you’d prefer another beverage I can look for it.” Loki pops open the bottle. The man doesn’t protest, so Loki pours both the man and himself a half-cup. He sets the open bottle between them. The man looks at him.
“It is Christmas Eve and obviously neither of us are at home enjoying our time with our families or loved ones. I don’t know your story, but since we have no other place to be, why not have a drink?”
In which Loki runs a little toy store and a short stranger stumbles in the evening before Christmas.

“Soul-bonding is very special,” his mother had said. “You can only do it once in your life so if you do it, make sure it’s with someone special.”
“But what if they don’t choose me back?” Steve had asked, thinking about his scrawny body and the way girls didn’t look at him.
“You would be tied to them forever,” his mother said gently. “That’s why it’s so important you make sure they’re the one. Because they don’t have to choose you too. And for some people, that’s more than enough. To just simply be tied to one person.”
“It should be special shouldn’t it, like what you and Dad had?”
Sarah smiled tiredly. “Yes. But it doesn’t always happen that way, for everyone.” She ruffled Steve’s hair affectionately. “Just make sure you’re prepared, when you choose someone.”
Steve laughed. “I will, Ma.”
Of course, three days later, Steve made his choice. Considering his history of relationships, he probably should have known it wouldn’t be reciprocated.
