    Summary

    Beth tears her way downstairs, machete swinging. One of the two zombies trying to climb up grabs at her ankle and she rapidly jerks her foot out of reach, smashing her boot down on the back of its rotten head. Its teeth clack loudly against the hardwood beneath a much wetter sound. She tries to decapitate the second in unison, but having one foot stuck in the filthy mash of brain matter like congealed applesauce has her off balance. The power behind the blade falters.

    It gets stuck in the damned thing’s throat halfway through. Its head cocks off to the side instead of flying from its shoulders, sludge pouring from the fleshy flaps of its ruined throat as its lipless mouth stretches wide.

    Summary

    The warmth of Addy’s hand against her cheek makes Beth feel steady. The gentle gleam in the deep umber of Addy’s eyes makes Beth feel seen, secure in the sense that she is loved. She feels like herself when Addy looks at her this way, holds her this way.

    Beth thinks she’s finally ready to give herself to Addy fully. For her fantasies to unfold, and for her not to stiffen up when they become realities. To let herself be touched, and feel touched as herself, as the person Addy’s adoring eyes promise her she is.

    Summary

    “Do you think it was really cannabutter?” Addy asks, eyeing the clock on the wall. Over forty minutes in and still no high. “Maybe RiRi was just messing with us.”

    “It stank like weed,” Beth scoffs, lazily swinging a leg over the arm of the couch. “Maybe we should’ve put more in, instead of cutting half with the normal stuff.”

    “Maybe…” Addy trails off, blinking as she feels the beginning of a buzz at the back of her skull.

    Summary

    They are girls dressing as women, they are hungry and desperately want, tearing themselves apart for a taste of life.

    Love is not that simple even if it actually ever becomes love.

    Summary

    Despite the faint wheeze in her voice, Addy pries the glass blown bowl out of Beth’s hands— once, and then more times than she can count as the night unfolds around them. She likes the way that Beth lets her take it, observes her with careful, respectful curiosity as she lights up and inhales until she’s giddy from her ribcage to her fingertips.

    Summary

    Addybeth College AU. I've had this idea for awhile and honestly I'm not sure how it will take but I figured it was worth a shot. This is the first chapter which just kind of lays the ground work for the next few I haven't decided how many chapters I'll write but here goes nothing.

    Summary

    "Was that my mistake?" She couldn't keep the entirety of the mental conflict which she had concealed from showing, not any longer.

    "No...No it wasn't. Maybe you still do like me, Addy."

    The girl exhaled shakily as Coach closed in on her further- there was a hair's width between them, and she couldn't stand it, yet she was frozen to the spot. And there was underlying truth in the woman's words as she continued, which, Addy realised, was a painful issue.

    God, Coach was good at this.

    Summary

    Sometimes Addy hears a wistful note in Colette’s soft sighs and notices chips in her nail polish as she twirls the wineglass in her fingers.

    It is these moments when Addy wonders what game it was Colette had been playing, and how she lost badly enough to have nothing but Addy left over. Addy’s love as her only consolation prize.

    She will never ask. Colette would never tell her even if she did.

    Summary

    Coffee Shop AU, where Beth continues to go to the same shop in order to secretly watch and crush on it's newest barista Addy Hanlon. Only on this day, Beth brings Riri and things take a turn, when Riri sees and offers for another infamous bet between the two. Completely AU, definitely a AddyBeth endgame fic.

    Summary

    Tacy makes a crude gesture with her hands, her forefinger and thumb forming a hole that separates as she slips her fist through.

    “It hurts,” she mimics, raising her voice to a nasally whine.

    “Tacy, I will end you,” Addy growls lowly, aware of the other girls hovering, fixing their shoes or hair, wrapping their knees and wrists with athletic tape. Her panic is a snowstorm inside of her, but she can’t lose her composure here.

    Summary

    “Long time no see, Hanlon.” Beth looks her up and down, feeling her polite smile turn into a real one as she winks. “Looking good.”

    “Thanks, you too.” Addy blinks, lips twitching with a smile that doesn’t meet her eyes as she says, “but it’s French now.”

    “…huh?” Beth narrows her eyes.

    “You called me 'Hanlon.'” Addy almost shyly lifts up her hand and wiggles her fingers, revealing yet another silver ring. “It’s French now.”

    Summary

    They barrel through the stoplight at NASCAR speeds, into the sea of shiny chrome cars zooming back and forth like beetles on crack. A battered military jeep smashes into them. There’s a concert of squealing tires and steel crunching like cola cans. Addy flies right through the windshield and Beth screams and screams, her lungs have no limit, she won’t— can’t stop screaming—

    With a jolt, Beth wakes, gasping for air.

    No one is screaming.

    It’s just the alarm on her phone, blaring its racket to tell her it’s time to rise n’ shine.
