    Summary

    Mac mindlessly takes the papers as Tiffany doles them out. She can't believe KJ's sick and didn't tell her, for one, and two, she can't even bring herself to be pissed about it. The only thing actually being processed is that she's worried out of her head. KJ's probably alone right now, and she will be all day unless her mom or dad decides to stay home from work, and if she is alone, how the hell is she going to take care of herself? The flu can be nasty and -

    A pair of hands clap together in front of her face. Erin is staring at her, "Hello, Earth to Mac. Are you gonna move any time today?"

    Summary

    (i kinda hate this fic but whatever)

    the other 3 paper girls come out to visit kj in new york for the end of holidays (1999) and new years, unfortunately, unrequited love is a bitch. especially when you didn’t know it was unrequited. erin and tiff are the only ones with a brain cell.

    they/them kj and mac, they/she erin, canon everyone else

    cw; blood, violence, drinking

    the pov switches a lot but it’s rlly clear who’s it’s in at a time

    lastly, kj and mac’s relationship in this is borderline toxic. i’m aware of that. i wrote it intentionally, and honestly that’s because i’m writing it going with comic personalities. i don’t like the comics because (even though it’s a great ship) post-comic canon, kajemac would prob be p unhinged. i don’t like that they lost a lot of development bc they don’t remember it, and even if it’s not shown to it’s fullest that’s just how i see it going. i don’t like how i wrote them in this, but i tried to make it accurate in my eyes at least.

    Summary

    A glimpse into the minds of Mac and KJ between scenes in the show (because I want Sofia and Fina’s performances to speak for themselves) half ship-post, half character study of both of them.

    I’m waiting to read the comics until I can do a full character analysis of the four in the show, so don’t expect any comic references - and please no spoilers in the comments :))

    Summary

    Inspired by the 'lesbians doing makeup' meme

    It wasn’t difficult for Mac to be roped into stupid ideas, all she really needed was a firm pat on the back and a convincing voice. But most of the time the only real ‘convincing’ she needed was KJ saying ‘please’.

    “Please?” She said, sitting upright on the bed and waving a small black pen looking thing.

    OR

    Kj convinces Mac to let her do her eyeliner with a love confession thrown in the mix

    Summary

    She sees Mac. 

    Sixteen and sick as a dog lying on that hospital bed. She's utterly devoid of color, basically down to her bones, but somehow still smiling as she asks for a cigarette in vain. A weird cocktail of devastation and fondness comes with reliving those moments. Only Mac Coyle grins in the face of death and dares it to keep coming.

    Summary

    Mac scoffs aloud at nothing in particular, just the general way her friends and girlfriend snuck their way into her life and managed to turn her into a complete pile of mush.

    "MacKenzie Coyle." It's Mac. She's told this specific nurse that she goes by Mac nothing short of fourteen goddamn million times, but obviously, nothing is going to change, so she gets up with a massive sigh and follows the woman into a room, Alice and Dylan on her tail.

    -

    Or Mac reflects on the people she loves.
