    Summary

    These are little poetic blurbs to water your crops and break my kneecaps.
    Your crops? Consider them watered.
    My knees? Obliterated.

    When I can't sleep I write these things. Some are satiric. Some are not. Are they cringey? Maybe. Do I care? Maybe a little if someone decides to roast me.

    On a more serious note:
    If words are instead the windows to the soul, I hope that mine are stained glass

    Summary

    Wilbur’s escape was abruptly cut short when a hand grabbed the back of his collar.

    He straightened. “Technoblade,” he began. “Let go of me.”

    “How about no?”

    “I’m not playing these games anymore,” Wilbur snapped. “For goodness' sake, I’ve been president. I’m not a child--”

    “Really?” Techno laughed dangerously, quietly. “You’re still acting like one.”

    ~or~

    Wilbur is revived. Except, there is one small problem--Ghostbur is still here.

    Every time Wilbur sleeps, Ghostbur wakes. And Ghostbur wants nothing more than to be, in Wilbur's opinion, an annoying little prick. Every night, he brings Wilbur back to a very special place--

    Home.

    And it might just be enough to drive Wilbur insane.

    Summary

    Takami Keigo was like Icarus, who had flown higher and higher until his wings had given out. The only difference was that Keigo welcomed the inevitable fall, and he had to break his wings himself, as he had no sun to melt them.

    Summary

    If there's ever a story Blitz relates to, it's the fall of Icarus. Because God knows he's fallen enough times to know how it feels. It's all he can think about as he recalls that awful night at Ozzie's with Stolas. Part of a colletion of oneshots.

    Summary

    “Bring him back.”

    “He wont remember you if I do.”

    ~

    “My mother told me about the Sun God once. She said that humans took something away from him. As a result, he became insane with rage and vengeful wrath. He ignited all of the hibernating volcanos to smoke out those responsible. Rumor has it, that the world didnt see a hint of sunlight for such a long time a huge ice age coated the earth. I dont believe it though, I want to think he is beautiful and painfully passionate. Whatever was taken away from him, must have meant the world to him.”

    Bakugo stayed silent at the painful memories, watched as the red head looked at the sun with such admiration, and pleaded for Kirishima’s memories to return.

     

    Or in which Icarus flies too close to the sun, to return to the home he has been longing for. After waking up and with little memories to go off of Kirishima needs to remember who he is, and why he is so drawn to an explosive male.

    Summary

    BOOK TWO OF DESOLATE PARADISE BUT CAN BE READ AS A STAND ALONE

    In which Tommy is hailed as a god by the people of a hidden island and SBI tries to get him back from the grasps of a sinister masked prophet.

    Tommy woke to the taste of blood, eery darkness, and unbearable pain. Like every bone in his body had shattered into tiny shards and pierced into his skin like steel knives. Like he’d been lit on fire from the inside out.

    Burning raging pain across his skin on his left arm and wing, raking across his skin in tiny, sharp bolts of pain as he desperately tried to move- to do cry out in pain, to roll over, anything.

    “He wakes! His eyelids are fluttering, my lord!” A voice yelled and Tommy winced backwards at the sound.

    There was a sound of a scuffle, and Tommy glimpsed a faint white light growing stronger by the second.

    And then, pressure over his wounded wing. Claws, sinking into his feathers, ripping away at them, scorching him. Fire exploded through his veins, burning, scorching his insides like liquid magma.

    Then agony subsided into the welcoming darkness of unconsciousness.

    Summary

    And there he fell, without grace and without glory.

    He cried out, reaching to the heavens. "Help me, father."

    But Chuck did nothing to help the dying angel. Poisoned by his hamartia. Wings and wax melted from flying too close to the sun. Delicate feathers floated around him, a sign of his irreversible mistakes.

    His final thoughts lingered as he fell the last few feet. With one arm outstretched, he reached towards the sky, hope leaving his body the same way the last swirl of grace leaked from his eyes.

    He shut them, hitting the ground with a thud. The stripped skeleton that was his wings burned their everlasting mark into the ground below, while torn feathers and shards of stained glass littered the concrete floor.

    His soul can be found in the only plain of darkness that can quench his fiery light. A place of solid black. One of nothing but emptiness. Nothing but quiet.

    His final resting place, where the shadows greet him like an old friend.

    ---

    As Dean is faced with the fiery consequences of simply saying “yes”, Cas is warned to stop flying towards his sun.

    The feathers of time begin to fall, and Michael stands there with a match, melting the wax they're attached to.

    Summary

    Hawks is a hero working for the people of Crete. He flies on mechanical wings, scouring the islands' skies and defeating monsters to keep civilians safe. But is this truly all life has for him? Though escape had once sounded promising, he's long since bent his knee to the ruling authority alongside the infamous inventor Endeavor, who he learns alongside within the passageways of the Labyrinth.

    Inspired by Greek stories like The Fall of Icarus, Daedalus and the Labyrinth, and Phaethon and the Sun Chariot, this story seeks to provide a retelling of events through the eyes of Hawks. His responsibilities, his hardships, and his insecurities welling beneath the surface of someone trained to be selfless.
