    Summary

    Based off of the novel "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. The world has ended, and Bro is alone with his little brother, still a child, struggling to keep them both alive. The sun is hardly ever out, every animal and plant is dead, the earth is growing colder every day, and food is scarce. Bro isn't sure where he's really going, but as long as he has his world, Dave, with him, then he's sure they'll be all right.

    Summary

    You take down your usual mug, turn it around in your hands. No conclusions, no assumptions, no morals to the story, just hands and skin in the dark, a soft cry that echoes in your ears as if it had been etched on your brain. You can’t remember now if the cry was yours. But you do remember the terrible sudden intimacy of bodies, the intoxicating license to touch and be touched. All the usual rules of interaction -- a hug but not a kiss; touch the shoulder but not the neck; shake hands but don’t turn the hand over to investigate the secret hollowed palm, the inside of the wrist soft and translucent -- all those unspoken barriers, all torn away at once.

    It's a morning like any other, except that there's someone sleeping in your bed.

    Summary

    "You force-stop your hands from tapping away at the ground, instead picking one up to—what? Touch him? He’s close enough to touch now, not being a fickle disappearing douche, not about to run off to talk to anyone else. You reach out to him, maybe to steady him as he settles, but instead you close your hand into a waiting fist."

    Oneshot from Dave's POV throughout pages 9363-9383.

    Summary

    John has always been the strong one out of the two of you. He kept all his problems under lock and key, and you rarely saw him upset. It just made it all the more heartbreaking to catch him lying in your shared bed, sobbing.
