    Summary

    Lonliness, feeling ignored, and an unrequited crush sitting and having fun without you in the room next door. Remus had enough reasons to want to get out of the house and drown his sorrows in corner store snacks. But when a strange being in a trench coat asks him what he would give for the chance to change himself, he's even more glad he left. What would you be willing to lose for the chance to be softer around the edges? Even your life?

    Summary

    Janus had long ago accepted that he and the Others would be rejected by Thomas. It made sense, given his upbringing and the social expectations that societal standards had placed on people, that Thomas would never want them around. But Virgil, from the moment he appeared, was destined to be in the Light. He shined too brightly for Janus to allow the darkness to kill his light.

    Summary

    -
    "They say time heals all wounds," he says calmly, trying to ignore the ache in his own heart. His voice is so very loud after such a long time spent in the stifling quiet.
    Anxiety laughs, the sound bitter and patronizing. Logan resists the urge to flinch away from it, from this coldness that isn't like Anxiety at all, not really. "Broken hearts aren't that simple, Lo."
    They lapse into silence.

    Summary

    Tears pricked his eyes and Roman jerked his head up to stare at the ceiling, blinking them away desperately.

    He always did this. Couldn't do his job, got worked up, started crying like a little baby, calmed down enough to pick up his pencil, didn't write anything down, then cried again. It was a vicious cycle. A cycle he couldn't break as of late, much to his chagrin.

    If he couldn't break the cycle, he was useless. And if he was useless, Logan and Patton wouldn't want him anymore. And if Logan and Patton didn't want him anymore... where would he go?

    Summary

    -
    When Thomas begins taking anxiety medication, Virgil is convinced that Thomas wants to get rid of him. He makes one more final, desperate attempt to fix the strained bond between him and the Sides (that he has, despite his best efforts, begun to call family) before locking himself in his room and awaiting his fate. But things don't go quite the way he planned.

    Summary

    Virgil Anxiety Sanders isn't doing so hot. He has no one who makes an effort to make him feel loved.
    Not anymore.
    He feels hopeless and depressed.
    As he lies in bed following a particularly rough day, he recites a sardonic little wish. He wishes to either die or forget all the bad that's happened to him.
    Through sheer willpower, he manifests his wish of amnesia-- though at a cost. To unwittingly erase memory, a perspective of the past, he erases history. And the only way to truly erase history? To make like it never happened.
    He's regresses to his ten-year-old self.
    The Lights are hit with a few revelations about the (literal) kiddo, the Darks feel like they got a second chance, and Thomas-- God, Thomas is just a mess.

    Just as a heads up from your friendly author, this fic was originally not intended to be high quality so much as vent, so the writing right now is rough.
    However after reading through it, I realized I'd like to edit the pacing and grammar to be of a higher standard. So it's not great right now but I'm hoping to get it there. I'll yeet this message off of the summary box after the deed is done

    Summary

    -
    I can't lose you, I just now recognized how much you mean to me and I've been terrible to you and I'm so sorry that I can't fix the past, but I can try to do better now. Because I care for you, and I regret the things I have done to you, Roman tried to say, but the words stuck in his throat and he blurted the next best thing.
    "You make us better."

    Summary

    -
    Virgil tried so hard to rekindle his relationship with Roman, had tried so desperately to put aside his role and remain the same Side that Roman wanted to be around.
    They'd been friends practically since the very beginning, and now...now Roman was tossing him aside like an old soda bottle to be recycled.

    Summary

    The morning was so… so wonderfully… something.

    It made Virgil feel warm all over. He felt like when Patton brushed his fingers on his wrists, but more.

    It was so wonderful, to sit with them, listen to Patton make pancake puns, and try to suppress his grins and snickers, and Logan groaning and Roman making faces.

    He was feeling so… so good and full and warm and wonderful that he really couldn’t help himself. The thought of being worried was so distant, surrounded by the other Sides, and Patton’s bright smile and laughter and jokes.

    Summary

    (Whumptober 2019: #9, "Shackled")

    *

    "Can't believe you've been hiding these from me, Anxiety," Malice says with diabolical cheer. "All this time I spent wondering where your extra traits were, and they were in plain sight all along! Without all that eyeshadow they stand right out, don't they?"

    *

    Pre-Accepting Anxiety: Virgil gets hurt and tries to hide it. It goes badly— and then much, much better than he expected.

    Summary

    Janus doesn’t remember when it started.

    He didn’t just wake up one day, look at Virgil Sanders, and think to himself I want to kiss him, but he wants to nevertheless. He can’t tell you the exact moment he realized, but it’s an ache he can’t ignore.

    And maybe if he did kiss Virgil Sanders, then it would go away, whatever this it is. Virgil spends a lot of time with the favored sides, Janus hasn’t failed to notice. The anxious trait returns to the ousted sides’ common room after every time, his eyes filled with stars Janus can never give him. Is it better this way? What will happen if Virgil just… leaves? Maybe one day he’ll get up, he’ll sink out, and that will be that. Then the feelings should have to go away.
