    there's something wrong with this picture. only he can figure it out.

    Summary

    “Try not to die on the first day of school, Riz”, she said and there was sincerity in her voice.

    As sad as it sounded, however mean she was, Aelwyn Abernant was the closest thing he had for a friend the last few years. They were just two teenagers, not so subtly manipulated by forces beyond their control. It helped to be honest and open with someone, even if that someone was a stuck up, rich, high elf.

    Riz would have still killed her if Kalina ordered him to, but he’d like to think that he’d hesitate a bit.
    ~
    or, a freshman year's retelling, where Riz is balancing being Kalina's spy, working towards bringing an evil dragon back to power and being tasked protecting a bunch of idiots who can't jump over tables. Somehow, the power of friendship is involved?

    Summary

    She’d researched asexuality. It hadn’t been intentional, she’d found it when she’d done a deep dive on queer history and labels after Kristen came out, wanting to be a better ally. But asexual had caught her attention, and she’d ended up down a rabbithole of people sharing their experiences and discussions of the differences between identities within the asexual spectrum. Some small part of Adaine had lit up in recognition, had buzzed with understanding when people talked about faking having crushes so their friends wouldn’t interrogate them anymore. She’d folded up the realization, the recognition, and held it close to her heart; a secret thought of maybe I’m…

    Until now. Until Riz, with his stubbornness and his bravery, came out to all of them. 

    It felt like a kind of permission, like one of Kristen’s gods was reaching down telling Adaine it was okay, that she wasn’t alone. That there were people- real people, people she knew and trusted and loved- that understood how she felt.

    Summary

    She grunts, presumably shoving at him and not having much success given Fabian’s triumphant snickering. “I said make room-”

    Riz pries himself up off the carpet, thinking of moving to help her, when Fabian lets out a startled squeak. Everyone goes quiet.

    Fig leans off the bed with truly devilish glee in her tiefling eyes. “Guys, he’s ticklish.”

    The Bad Kids try to plan a sleepover, Fabian needs to learn how to share, and Riz is maybe starting to get the hang of this whole friendship thing.

    Summary

    (of a coward that you and i both hate very much)

    "But things are harder, after. Things are much harder. The Shadow Cat makes things even more awful, and the forest is so much worse, for all Baron (what’s the point, now, of trying to say Baron’s not real, of course Baron’s real, despite all his token protests that even Baron can tell hold no weight) can’t touch him. She more than makes up for it; it’s like all the things he does with his brain suddenly causing actual damage. Fun! So fun. Much harder, much worse."

    Summary

    Sklonda was grateful she didn’t have to see the damage, but hearing her baby boy’s windpipe break, listening to the sounds of his friends screaming his name, and realizing after a few moments that he was no longer breathing - it was too much.

    It was too much, and then the monster picked him up and -

     

    The Ball, his friends called him, The Ball because he was small and easy to grab and throw and toss around and -

     

    - smashed his tiny body into the staircase.

    Summary

    Today, Riz looks at his reflection while brushing his teeth. He focuses only on his lips, his wide-open mouth, the movement of his toothbrush. His fangs are whiter than the rest of his coffee-stained teeth.

    Summary

    "Riz was by far the smallest in the class and he was so sure he was not going to well. But, Mr. Doronur told him to keep at it, and that he saw good things for him. He really liked Mr. Doronur, but something just didn’t sit well with him. He got a nat 1 on insight,and he couldn’t quite place it. He did know he really liked him though."
    Riz likes Fighting Class, he just doesn't like Coach Doronur's lingering hands. He learns his friends and his family love him, and that they will do anything for him. He just needs to remember that, first.
