    Summary

    All of Stronghold had been able to see the convoy for hours now. Since morning a slow, messy line had steadily moved closer to them. So long that it extended towards the mountains many miles south.
    Soon they would be close enough to make out the people themselves, carrying their flags high in the air, victorious.

    And Wilbur's brother at the very front, leading.

    ~♔~

    Or, Wilbur has not seen Technoblade in close to a year, hundreds of miles of snow and ice between them. Their reunion should have been a happy one, but his twin's behavior is a cause for concern.

    Summary

    Either way, his mind had once again drifted to the bright blue sky of the outside world, of which he had glimpsed from the window. He vividly remembered the singular falcon that soared past, his eyes having caught onto the movement with well-veiled interest. He wondered if he too could be as free as the falcon. If one day, he would stretch his arms and fall from the heavens, only to have a pair of wings catch on the wind and send him spiralling upwards in a burst of air and freedom. If perhaps, he would be able to leave one day, to adventure into the bright blue unknown and find a wind of his own to drift on. He knew how small the chance is, how his wings had been clipped the day he entered the restraints of the Armed Detective Agency, how he would never be able to repair them – to fly.

    Summary

    "I don't want you to be my boyfriend anymore." Her voice was shaking.

    "Oh."

    Something about the word boy stung more than the rejection itself. The line went silent and Jonathan heard a choked sob on the other side. They didn't have it in them to try and comfort them. A beeping sound and static. They blinked, they knew it was coming, yet somehow they were still weirdly shocked.

    OR; Jonathan Byers' gender identity crisis.

    (Neurodivergent Jonathan btw!)
