    Summary

    "I'm Wade," he's grinning easy, but also as if he's baring his teeth at Bucky, as if he can tell that he is broken, a rabid wild animal beyond saving, beyond anyone's control. Bucky has believed this of himself, he's known it to be true ever since he came back.

    Yet here this guy is, bright white teeth, muscle-bound, with almost a crew cut if it weren't for the scars cutting over his face and head that seem to make hair growth impossible (opposite of Bucky's issue, he grows too MUCH hair) - holding out his hand like he wants Bucky to actually shake it. " - are you going to introduce yourself and shake my hand or not, bucko? I'm very big on politeness. I'm Canadian," he adds as if that explains anything. Bucky clenches his jaw.

    "It's Bucky," he growls.

    ".. Well Bucky of the steel blues where home is, you gonna shake hands civilized or are we going to go our separate ways after beating each other to a pulp in an alley?"

    (Of strange interactions, the depths of friendship, and unlikely ways to heal the wounds of mind, heart, and time.

    Or Bucky meets and interacts with Deadpool - and finds a family, somehow, in the traumatic darkness)

    Summary

    To put it simply, he is flustered, but so is Miyuki from his red skin and the slight tremble Youichi feels beneath his palms. If Youichi doesn't do this now, he'll lose the momentum of his heart careening straight into Miyuki's rough hands.

    Summary

    Rain, a chase, a difference of opinion and the game they're playing. Naruto attempts to prove something through the veil of rainfall. But Sasuke rarely agrees with him anyway. One-shot. Post-Time Skip. SasuNaru- if you (really, really) want.

    Summary

    "When I was four, I sat on a yellowjacket's nest and got stung about a hundred times. After that I would get rushed inside at the sight of a bumblebee. I was also raised super religious and super homophobic. So, a few summers ago, when I spent the last bit of my husband's deployment tending a lavender field amidst a ton of bees, it took me the whole summer to relax around them and to unpack the way I felt in my marriage, and the way I felt about my friend Jenna. I got this tattoo of a bee surrounded by lavender sprigs the day I filed for divorce because pollinators are precious, I am gay, and it's never too late to fall in love with things you were taught to fear."

    Summary

    The sun, the brightest object in the milky way. Some say it’s the most beautiful, some don’t have that opinion. But no one can deny it gives life and absence would change life as you knew it. That’s why Mark crumbled when Haechan disappeared the day after his 16th. Didn’t even mention he wouldn’t be coming back. Well, why would he? Mark could never get close enough for that.

    Summary

    Nagito Komaeda is Icarus, and he is flying too close to an astounding sun that's taken the form of a teenage boy.

    (Or, the author can't write descriptions well and summarizes it in a wanna-be-poetic way- essentially a short retelling of the events up to chapter 5 of sdr2, in the form of an extended metaphor about the greek myth of icarus. MAJOR sdr2 spoilers ahead!!!!)

    George doesn’t know his real name, only that it’s impossible to pronounce with his current, human tongue. He doesn’t even quite remember what he’s meant to look like, only that he is small now, smaller than he’s ever going to get used to, and two eyes is not enough.

    Summary

    There is something universal about being a showman. From boardrooms to boardwalks, if you look past the glamours and smoke. He was born to hold up the rigging, to shift the backgrounds, to set and reset the stage, but there is oh so much you can learn, watching from the wings.

    Or -- The lead up through Tokyo Ghoul’s opening act as told through an extended theater and circus metaphor from the point of view of the character setting it all in motion.

    Summary

    Matthew loved the stars.

    They had always been there, and they always would. They had seen him thrive in his highest points and fall slowly, agonizingly, to his lowests. Empires had risen and fall as the stars stood silently over them like sentinels in the night, immortal in the depths of mankind's imagination. They were the keepers of long-forgotten secrets, of stories scarcely told.

    Matthew loved the stars because they were like him.

    Or:

    Matthew's been alive for more than a thousand years. He's seen far too much, died far too often, and yet he's still there.

    Summary

    Humans have a knack for spinning truths into lies when there’s something they don’t want to admit, when there’s something they would rather hide. Off the coast of Yokohama before the sun begins to set, comes the story of two individuals and the lies they’re learning to overcome.

    Grappled with the stress and fatigue from writer’s block, Oda’s no stranger to the insecurities beginning to bubble and froth. Likewise for Dazai, as they’re coming home from the Agency, the familiar feeling of being picked apart has left their bandages frayed and their mind splintered. However, just as the night doesn’t exist without its rising star, these moments of uncertainty are never permanent when a reflection and a restart are just around the corner. Both writer and detective find it for themselves — both independently and through each other, as they break the waves sinking them under.
