    Summary

    Bam squints against the blue sky, the chorus of waves singing in his ears.

    He lies back in the sand, body finally relaxing in the comforting air.

    Summary

    The first time Edward undresses Stede is a hasty, perfunctory event, the pierced and bloodsoaked remnants of the Gentleman Pirate's elegant white ensemble cut off him to prevent from having to move his mostly-dead body too much in the process of baring his wounds.

    The second time Edward undresses Stede, it's still a hasty event, but there's nothing perfunctory about it.

    Summary

    I tried to rewrite this garbage show so that it had an actual message that didn't hinge off of what Twitter thinks is woke and an actual direction that kind of represents modern literature and not My Immortal. If y'all like it, I'll make more parts until I remake the whole show, but for now, enjoy the stuff I have for you right now. k bye xoxo

    Summary

    You remember the day you met him. The way his hair stuck up in all directions; the tiny printed volleyballs on his tie. How his eyes had widened slightly when they met yours.

    He tells awful jokes.

    You try to ignore him.

    Summary

    If Eda suggested running away again to Whispers she knows they would only shake their head and laugh at the mere thought of running away again.

    As though running away worked the first time.

    Summary

    Валентину снится сукно стола с яркими кляксами карт, стук фишек и звон монет. Ему снится, как его приглашают за игральный стол. Рука в черных и синих кольцах отодвигает для него кресло. "Сыграйте с нами, юный Придд, разбавьте этот скучный вечер."

    Summary

    When the chains of captivity cannot be broken, the chains of sanity shall break instead. Is emancipation from such a state even possible?
     

    On Christmas Eve, Akira took hold of the Holy Grail and then immediately took the fall for his friends. Struggling to cope with the traumatic solitude of prison and the weight of humanity’s distorted desires, he develops a Palace.

    Actually, he develops Palaces, plural. Twenty-two of them in total.

     

     

    An alternate scenario for Royal’s Third Semester.

    Summary

    "The honey is made from Plumeria." She says, spreading the hard set mixture, eyes never leaving Jake's face.

     

    He is not a fool — not the smartest of them for sure, but he has read the same books, listened to the same stories. There isn't an easy way for anyone to get that kind of sweet honey in Tottenham fucking Court Road. He takes the hint like a punch to the face, graciously and wanting more . 

     

    "I've tasted better, if you remember." He replies, and she stops halfway through  the movement, cheeks flushing as she remembers to move again, to not let him see anything.

    Summary

    "And if I say I'm in love with you too?" He paused to look at how Minho blinked at him right before his lips curled up to a slight smile.

    "Then that meant hurt me all and through." Minho spoke and closed the distance between them.

    Summary

    Whoever is on the line is a persistent little shit. He hums a mindless tune, but nothing can prepare him for the one line that he inadvertently catches, when he stops for air.

    "...if Seonghwa hyung was here, he wouldn't want to see you like this either."

    In that moment, he flinches so violently that he clips his head on the underside of the table.
