    Summary

    Even with pain in his face, Michael had such a lovely one; it was the kind of lovely face that artists before me searched endlessly for, the kind of beauty that consumed you if you let it. Art existed to worship beauty like his; and there he was, sitting by my window, still watching me. He was waiting for me to say something, but I simply listened to the aria, the steady tides of the melody. I carefully sketched the details of his dark hair, thick and tucked behind his ears.

    By the time the sunlight faded from my window, I knew I had finished the portrait. I glanced at him with a tiny smile, and his gaze on me fell with his stillness. He stood, stretched, reached into his pocket for his pack of cigarettes. I added a few finishing touches to the portrait as he lit his cigarette with a match, blowing pearly smoke from his lips out the open window.

    I stood up, brushing my hair out of my face with my wrist to avoid my dusty, blackened fingers. I quickly signed the bottom right corner of the portrait with my messy signature before adjusting the easel higher. I positioned it towards him, stepping back and exhaling a satisfied breath. I prayed it was as good as he'd hoped; it was a goodbye gift, after all.

    Summary

    Maybe in another life, Tommy would run into a musician, or a warrior, or a father. Maybe in another life, he would be adopted into a strange unconventional family which would be his everything until he would traverse into the Dream SMP. Maybe in another life, it wouldn’t be enough to save him from betrayal, and he would one day be abandoned by them.

    But in this life; he did not stretch his thieving fingers into the satchel of an avian, or the pockets of the one day revolutionary, or run off with the sword of a legend.

    Instead- he hid with another lost child with nowhere to go.

    Summary

    He's special, he knows that.

    His family is special, he also knows that.

    He knows because he knows other kids don't cry diamonds, or bleed rubies, or shed flakes of rose quartz instead of skin, or have literal golden threads as hair.

    He knows because other parents aren't Gods, their siblings aren't Gods.

    But he's happy, just the way it is.

    Until, like the dumb little youngling he is, he decides to hop around servers, unaware of the misfortune his so-called gift brings him.

    ...

    It's time for a family reunion.
