    Summary

    Peter flaps a hand in the air, grasping for words. All he’s left with is the thought that’s been running through his head all night: “There was this dilapidated building out near Hell’s Kitchen, rotted all the way through, and I kept staring at it and thinking, This thing could go down at the smallest breeze.” Peter gestures at the roof over their head. “Even this apartment could go down easily enough.”

    May rubs his hand. “Buildings don’t just collapse, Peter. Did something happen to make you worried about that?”

    Peter shakes his head. He doesn’t ever give her details. He doesn’t tell her about the intimate, gnawing kind of horror that came with being trapped beneath a collapsed building and knowing no one was coming to save you; the way it felt like his bones were being ground into the damp cement; how he’d felt small and very soft, and how his thoughts keep going over the components of a building—rusted metals, long nails strong enough to jut through cement—and how that might’ve pierced him if he’d moved wrong, like a fork pulled through slow cooked meats.

     

    (Peter learns to cope and communicate with the people around him, post-Homecoming.)

    Summary

    Maybe in another universe, things went differently. Maybe in another universe, they didn't get so lucky. But here and now, they're safe. Regulus Black showed up just in time, with the key to winning the war, and put the power back in the Order's hands. If only things had a tidy ending--but that was never really in anyone's plan now, was it.

    A what if everyone lived AU.

    Summary

    Yuuri overflows with the weight of things that have been said, trembles with what remains.

    Their shared zeroes flicker in time, the early morning light muting the red glow to faint numbers. In the amber dawn, an idol is only just a man.

    (Or: the Soulmate Timers AU where things happen out of order, secrets are kept, revelations are had, and they arrive where they need to be in the end.)
