    Jet cradled the child like the unimaginably precious thing she was and tried not to think about the hork-bajir blood staining his blades, about the lives they all traded for hers.

    Summary

    "What's going on?" Adrian asked softly.

    Alma shook their head as if trying to clear it before they turned to look at Adrian. "Today is the day I met Illim 368. Three years ago today, I met someone who would become important to me, and now they're gone."

    (Or, Alma has a miserable day and Adrian does his best to make it better.)

    Summary

    Mal can't protect Ariel from everything. Logically, he knows that. She also never hesitates to tell him, for most of her early childhood, that she doesn't need his help for anything. And in her teenage years, straight-backed at their parents' funeral, that she doesn't need him to put his whole life on hold for her.

    The thing is. He's not sure he did such a great job being a good brother to Ariel when he was a teenager, despite all his promises to the contrary. And he knows he doesn't need to make up for that, not really, but he can't help but worry all the same.

    Summary

    Dante “loans” Kel his hoodie; Benny helps Dante dress up; Kel teaches Benny how to sew.

    for the prompt: " "I worry about it" "I just want him to feel safe", the notion: when is a monster not a monster? when you love it"

    Summary

    Dante doesn’t have much practice with this. He knows how to take care of his friends. He can steal money and throw his body in front of danger to protect them, but this is a different type of affection he’s less familiar with. It’s quieter, more hands-on.
    Dante wouldn’t do this for anyone, but for Benny? For Kel? He’d wade into these uncertain waters every fucking day if he had to.

    Summary

    Ariel's hands are too full of pizza boxes to knock, so she kicks at the door to announce her arrival instead. She's not sure who she's hoping opens the door to the apartment she shares with Kel, but she can think of plenty of reasons why she doesn't want to see each of the others in turn.

    (Or: Ariel tries to apologize using a pizza bribe.)

    Spoilers for the S1 finale.

    Summary

    Dante’s barely even got the second knock out when Kel yanks the door to the apartment open and grabs his fist, already swinging forward again. “Shhhhhh!” they hiss, and peer back into the room behind them nervously, before relaxing. “Shhh,” they add, softer. “He jus' got to sleep.”

    Eyebrow already climbing into his hairline, Dante peeks around them into the apartment to find a pile of his hoodies cocooning a beagle puppy on Kel and Ariel’s ratty couch. “I thought you weren’t allowed to have pets in this place. Ow!

    Kel’s smacked Dante on the arm— lightly, but still a smack. “That’s Benny,” they say. “It was… a rough day. I tried to help make him comfortable, but I dunno if it really worked.”

    Oh.

    Summary

    This wasn’t right. Something wasn’t right. She shouldn’t still be injured— the morph should have healed her. Carefully, she checked her face— everything was right there, teeth only as sharp as they’d been before all this started. No tail, no paws, no fur— she was completely human. But a heavily injured one.

     

    (or, a reckless ariel tries to cope.)
