    Summary

    "Is something the matter, Hinata-kun?" Komaeda asks. "You look like you've seen a--"

    Hinata leans close, leans up just a little, and presses his lips to Komaeda's; it's a chaste kiss, but a determined one, and forceful for the determination behind it. Komaeda's lips are cool and dry and they part, just slightly, against Hinata's own. This was not a good idea. He's no longer quite sure why he did it. When he withdraws, he moves slowly, as though moving slowly will suffice to postpone the moment at which he has to see Komaeda's face.

    "Ghost," Komaeda says, and there's more interest in his tone than there is anger or apprehension; more curiosity.

    (In which Komaeda and Hinata find love (sort of) in a hopeless (sort of) place.)

    Summary

    Everything's just right. It's hard to believe that he isn't still inside a simulation, where everything is just so except for the small matter of the endless dread, the constant aftershocks of grief, the bodies piling up one by one by one.

    (Hinata and Naegi, after the endgame.)

    Summary

    "I've got the rest of the summer left before I need to start having good ideas," he says, and takes another drink. "Think of it as a favour. You're helping me get all the recklessness of my youth over and done with before I go."

     

    Waiting for summer to end and life to begin, Dakin passes the time.

    Summary

    “You are a good woman, Lisa,” says Johnny – and it is in that moment, sharing in their embrace and in their love, that Denny begins to feel as though, perhaps, someday, he could be their good son.

    Summary

    "Bedrooms do not simply appear from nowhere. This--" Guildenstern waves a hand -- "did not come magically into being all around us while we slept. We came here ourselves, under what we must presume was our own power, and so the question we must ask of ourselves now is why."

    Summary

    "Are you afraid? I've established clearly that you're Kira. Nothing you say will alter my conclusions. By my calculation, the chances that your attempts at conversation are motivated primarily by fear of death stand at approximately seventy-seven per cent." And L just looks at him, unblinking, eyes wide and searching and inscrutable. "What do you think?"

    (In which L figures it out early, and enacts justice.)

    Summary

    Time slows. Hinata grips the handle of his blade tightly enough that his fingers stop shaking. It’s not Komaeda. He might not have been able to kill Komaeda, even when Komaeda begged him to do it, but he’s a soldier. He’s a soldier, and a good soldier can kill a Titan.

    (A standalone fragment from a larger crossover that's probably never getting written.)

    Summary

    When they are awake and moving, Naegi-kun smiles through his exhaustion, lets Fukawa-san take his turn with the gas mask when she starts coughing and can't stop. It is a new thing entirely for Komaeda to feel as uncertain as this.

    (In which Komaeda meets the survivors of the mutual killing, and very little about it goes as he had planned.)

    Summary

    The sunlight, when it comes, is welcome; Komaeda gazes at it, the faint new line it has drawn on the floorboards, places himself in the world by the mark it has made. It is just bright enough to persuade his eyes to stay open, just beautiful enough to divert his attention from the ache of immobility in his shoulders and arms. He’s fortunate like that, even now!

    (In which Komaeda dislikes being tied up -- not that he can properly admit it.)

    Summary

    There is still hope. Komaeda believes this. There is hope with every scarlet sunrise and bloodsoaked sunset; there is hope in every raindrop laced with acid, in every shard of shattered glass and every rusted carcass of what was once a car or tram. There is hope in every crumbling skyscraper and every mutilated monument, every scream and every sob and every last rattling breath.

    (In which someone else won the Hope's Peak lottery, and all Komaeda got was this lousy apocalypse.)

    Summary

    Hinata doesn't remember agreeing to share a bed with Komaeda -- not when there's a perfectly acceptable couch across the room. And he definitely didn't agree to having Komaeda sprawled underneath him, naked to the waist with a gleam in his eye, still smiling that same beatific smile.

    (In which Komaeda is an alarming bedfellow, and Hinata has no idea what's going on.)

    Summary

    It is perhaps ironic that the first thing they do, once they've outrun the horde and caught their breath, is begin to construct a barricade.

    Summary

    “Dirk,” says Jake, perched on the edge of a desk, kicking his legs anxiously back and forth. Dirk stares at the expanse of skin between shorts and socks, every hair catching the classroom’s unshaded light. “Dirk – not to be bothersome or anything of the sort, but – how are we going to get out of here? Because I’d be pissed off to the Nth degree if I were to miss robotics club, you know! It would bugger up my day and no mistake. What’s the plan, Stan?”

    (In which Dirk Strider is the little control freak that could, and Jake English is quite thoroughly Stockholmed.)
