    Summary

    “What do you want?” He asks her, once he's close enough. At this distance she can see the freckles splayed across his cheeks and the way his hair curls at the edges where it's getting longer. It's not surprising that he's wary of strangers, but the iron edge of his voice speaks to something angrier. He's still the best option she's got.

    “A ride.” Clarke hopes her voice doesn't sound as bone weary as she feels. It doesn't pay to be weak out here. That's a lesson she learned the hard way, the scars of it permanently branded under her ribs.

    “Not in the market for a traveling companion,” he says, cold and dismissive, and steps around her to hoist the gas cans into the bed of the truck.

    Surviving was a trick for the apocalypse; finding something worth living for is the trick for after.

    Summary

    "The vows were short, perfunctory; Clarke was asked to say I do, and she did. There were rings, too: Bellamy’s fingers were warm against her hand when he slipped a ring on her finger, and she put a ring on his. They were instructed to kiss. His lips were dry, pressing against her mouth for a moment, and that was it. They were done.

    She was a wife, and her husband was a stranger."

    AU. Clarke winds up in an arranged marriage with Bellamy.

    Summary

    Silence greets him. He jerks his head up, looking around like a frightened animal. Zayn’s not there anymore. Another trick, via Paul Higgins.

    Of course. It’s not as if his life isn’t filled with ghosts, right?

    (For most of his life, Liam's wanted out of Gotham―to shed his Nightwing costume for something else. To have a normal life. Zayn wants revenge―and a bit of redemption, too. Secretly, they've wanted each other most of their lives, too. It's a shame murder and Gotham City keeps getting in their way.)

    Summary

    Bellamy Blake wouldn't say he's had the best year, but he thinks he's starting to do better. He feels fine, most of the time.

    His crew, apparently, does not agree, because they went out and hired a therapy human for him. He didn't even know therapy humans were a thing.
