Parvati and Lavender through the years.
“There’s someone for you, Lavender,” Parvati hushed. “You’re gonna be it for someone, I promise. Somewhere out there, someone is going to want to pick you first. Every time.”
Lavender’s head fell back against Parvati’s headboard, and she was all pressed up against Parvati’s side still. Her hand found Parvati’s and threaded through it, her fingers warm and trembling.
“Nobody ever has,” Lavender whispered. “Except…Only you, Parvati. Only you.”
Parvati’s breathing quavered. She only hoped that Lavender couldn’t hear it. Her heart stuttering, Parvati raised their hands and ventured to press a kiss against the back of Lavender’s hand. She dropped them back against the bed, between the dip where their thighs were resting against one another.
“I always will,” she promised.
Bucky has this thing inside him. Sometimes he is Bucky Barnes—sergeant, charmer, and Steve’s best friend. Sometimes he is the Winter Soldier—assassin, machine, and humanity’s worst enemy. Except when Steve found him, he didn’t become one or the other; he didn’t become a mix of the two. He’s just…both. Either-or. A two for one deal, all wrapped up in the same pounding head.
Bucky doesn’t trust the asset. The asset doesn’t understand Bucky. The only thing they can both agree on a hundred percent of the time is this: They both would go to the ends of the earth for Steve Rogers.
And whatever he is—whoever he is—Steve loves him too.
“Witches aren’t built to be alone,” Isabelle said.
“Maybe you can learn to be,” said Clary.
Isabelle shook her head. “Maybe I don’t want to be.”
Once upon a time there was a maiden who promised her firstborn child to a witch - except then the maiden had to fight an evil plot to save her family, and the witch came along to make sure the maiden could uphold their deal, and they realized that their happily ever after might be something completely different than they thought it would be.
Mickey doesn't want to go home for the holidays. Ian's family can't afford an extra mouth to feed unless it's absolutely necessary. The only solution? Tell them they're dating.
Fake dating Hogwarts AU!! Whoo(ps).
That’s the first time.

Here’s the catch: It’s not the last time.
There’s a second, and a third, and a fourth, and it goes on and on and on, like waves crashing to shore. Bucky gets this once a year; once every two or three. And he loves Steve with everything he has, the whole time, and he’s drunk, no he’s just tired, no he’s just gone without for a little too long, it doesn’t mean anything, it can’t happen again, Steve, fuck.
It’s a bad idea, it’s a worse idea, it’s the worst idea—Bucky takes and he takes and he doesn’t know when he’ll stop. He’s not sure he ever will.
AKA the one where they’ve loved each other this whole time, but they kept hurting each other anyway.
