    Summary

    It’s March and it’s too cold for Billy to be shirtless and wearing shorts, but he hadn’t noticed until Harrington appeared and made him hold still. Harrington can’t seem to stop looking at the bruises. “What’s it to you if I miss a little school, Harrington?” Billy asks. He feels goosebumps rising on his skin.

    “I don’t know,” Harrington snaps back, looking uncomfortable. He shifts his weight from one foot to the other. Plant your feet, Billy wants to scream at him. I’m going to bowl you over.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    In Hawkins, time doesn’t seem to matter like it did in California, but the heartbeat between the ball leaving Billy’s fingers and it sinking into the net happens in slow motion, and that heartbeat matters to Billy in a way he can’t quite wrap his head around.

    Summary

    Billy can't stop this feeling, like he's standing on a ticking time bomb, waiting for it to go off. He needs it loud, to drown out the burning threatening to spill out everywhere.

    And he cant get Steve Harringtons pretty, beaten face out of his head.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “I just….” He took in another inhale of his cigarette, aggressively tapping his foot against the floor, “I just don't wanna go home tonight.” The last words almost caught in his damn throat, coming out in a choked whisper. Billy hunched in on himself, embarrassed at this display of vulnerability. Why was he acting like such a fuckin pussy in front of goddamn fuckin Harrington?

    Summary

    Loki blinks a few times. This day is just getting odder and odder. “You’re giving me a suite."

    “Well, yeah, you’re my guest, what, am I gonna make a guest sleep in a closet or something? I’m a dictator, not an animal,“ the Grandmaster scoffs. “First you think I’m going to kill you, then you think I’m going to defile you, and now you think I’m going to, what, put you in the basement and, and feed you scraps? Is your opinion of everyone this low or are you just—or do I just throw off some kind of—some kind of—"

    “Grandmaster,” Loki says, interrupting him from his tangent. “With a history like mine, one learns to be... cautious.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The night closes in around them, blanketing the room in darkness until the only light is from the nearby lamp and the illumination of the wall panel that controls the lift. Loki's legs are folded up under himself like a pleased cat, the Grandmaster is curled under a soft blanket he pulled out of nowhere. They aren't even physically moving their pieces anymore, too unwilling to move from their cozy places; Loki uses a little servitor to move his pieces and the Grandmaster uses classic telekinesis. Their magic seems to mingle over the board, warming up the close space carved out of darkness by lamplight between them.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Because I’ve seen you looking at him, you know,” Nancy says. “So don’t act like tonight was just out of the blue. I’m not stupid.”
    The thing is, it was out of the blue, for him. Now that he’s thinking about, he can tell that he’s always known the shape of Steve’s hands, the stretch of too-small gym t-shirts across his shoulders, the curve of his smile. Or, if not always, then definitely for a while.
    Nancy might not be stupid, but apparently, Jonathan is.
    “I didn’t know,” he says, and chews his lip, and looks up at her. She’s staring at him. “Nancy, I didn’t know.”

    Summary

    Having spent a decent amount of time researching the history and folklore of Arkanis, Cadet Hux strikes out one chilly evening in search of some legendary creature that's supposed to be extremely powerful. If the myths aren't true, all he's wasted is time. But, if they are based in some actual fact, then what a boon such an entity would be to his cause. He doesn't know what he will find, but he is prepared for any (absolutely ANY) eventuality.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He hates how high his voice has gotten, but inwardly congratulates himself on continuing to be analytical even as his ass is stuffed full and his face is smeared with fluids.
