    Summary

    The ARC Reactor technology invented and brought to prominence by Stark Industries promised self-sustaining, clean energy. With the modifications and upgrades over the years, the technology was refined to the point where it was a near-limitless, perfect power source… until someone figured out how to deactivate its reactions.

    At 05:57 Tuesday morning, as Steve Rogers (graphic artist, bookworm, and omega) hit snooze for the third time and was dreading getting up for his yearly physical, the power grid for the entire eastern seaboard was shut down.

    At 05:57 Tuesday morning, as Bucky Barnes (writer, amateur gourmet, and alpha) was sliding into the most restful sleep he’d had in weeks, the power grid for the entire eastern seaboard was shut down.

    They say the repairs should only take a couple of days, and life will be back to normal. But... what if it takes longer than that?

    Summary

    Strongly based off of Taylor Swift's song "You Belong With Me"

    Karamatsu doesn't know when it happened, but looking at you,
    prettied up for the party you weren't going to, dancing with
    someone else, he knows...

    ...everything has changed.

    Summary

    Prompto shifted in Nyx’s arms, little arms reaching out toward Cor, who chuckled and handed the flash lamp over to the boy who immediately grabbed it with both his tiny hands. “Dad, pa, look, I’m a scary monster!” He giggled as he squinted his eyes at the light he shone onto his face from below his chin.

    “Indeed,” Cor deadpanned, but even though it was hard to see his face, Nyx could hear the smile in his voice.

    Summary

    The sun glowed behind Billy's hair like a halo, softening him immeasurably. And in this moment there was no reason to hang on the past. Sure Billy had tried before, with that grunt after basketball practice and Dustin telling him that Billy had apologised to Lucas. But now after every thing, after school was slowing down, his college applications were all in limbo, he was alone. It was better to salvage a bridge than pour gasoline on the smoking remains.

    Summary

    Rey woke by a splash of cold water.
    Gasping and shaking her head free of water, she caught sight of the redheaded general.
    Though she hadn't seen his face in the throne room, she was sure that it was him.
    His appearance was now composed and powerful. His wounds were treated, and his hair strictly combed to the back of his head.
    "I owe you thanks, girl."
    "This is a weird way to show it." Rey snapped, once again trapped in an interrogation room and with water dripping from her nose.

     

    This is part 3. of my Balance-series.
    It starts exactly where "The Color In Between" stopped and continues the story.
    If you haven't read "The Color In Between" or the first one: "The Space between Darkness & Light" you are missing out on a lot of background story and I suggest you do that first.

    If you have already read both... THANK YOU! Please enjoy!

    Summary

    Hoseok sat the glass down with a thunk on the bedside table, hoping the sound would jog his boyfriend’s dehydrated, sleep addled brain a little bit. Yoongi groaned, sniffing deeply in his sleep. He swatted Hoseok’s hand away from his hip from underneath the blankets, the shapeless mass of his hand batting Hoseok with all the force of a kitten's paw before he rolled stubbornly away, presenting Hoseok with what he could only assume was his back.

    “Hyung.” Hoseok sighed. At this point he knew he had two courses of action he could take.

     
    1) Take the Blankets.

    2) Tickle Him.

    And while tickling Yoongi into submission was one of Hoseok’s all time favorite pastimes, he’d already had his balls permafrosted today, and he didn’t really fancy the idea of Yoongi landing a particularly well aimed knee to the groin like he was prone to doing. The guy was scary accurate, even in his sleep.
