    Summary

    chiaroscuro: the interplay of darkness and light.

    --

    “We’re called guardians,” Kuro says. “Over time, people have had different names for us, but it really all comes back to that. We’re shifters, shaper-changers… the name doesn’t really matter. What does is that we’re supposed to keep the two kinds of magical forces in the world balanced.” He rattles this off with a roll of his eyes, as though it’s something he’s heard many times over.

    Kenma thinks back to the curling snake made of shadows, to Sugawara’s words: People who shine brightly attract a lot of darkness.

    “Shadows and light,” he says, not quite a question.

    Kuro nods approvingly. “Basically, yeah. There’s a bit more to it than that—shadow magic is born of independence, of isolation and loneliness. Light magic is connections, the relationships between people. Most people have a low dose of both, go through their entire lives not realizing there’s magic in the world.”

    “But not you,” Kenma prompts.

    “Unfortunately.”

    Summary

    In a Kingdom on the brink of war, Omegas are an oppressed and fetishized minority, intellectuals and those who question the government are deemed criminals, and those in power fight tooth and nail for more. Yet somehow, in the midst of all this, Armin, and Omega peasant, and Eren, a sheltered Alpha prince, who has spent most of his life in seclusion, end up falling in love.

    Although it's AU this story has a few manga spoilers, mostly having to do with backstories and character relationships. You've been warned.

    Summary

    Sequel to Seasons of Love.

    After a blissful year of normalcy and routine, life is demanding change. At the start of their third year of University, it's time for Kuroo and Bokuto to think seriously about their futures. Akaashi returns to school after taking an unexpected ronin year, and Tsukishima joins them in Tokyo for his higher education. Old relationships are tested, new relationships are born, and everything makes Kenma uneasy.

    --

    Takes place one year after the end of Seasons of Love. I recommend reading Seasons of Love before diving into this one as they are heavily connected, and reading SoL will enhance the reading of this fic. This story focuses primarily on Kenma and Bokuto's struggles, with much attention given to Kenma's developing anxiety disorder, and Bokuto's varying mishaps and bad decisions. After writing a 100k fic of mostly fluff, I'm trying my hand at drama and angst!
