    Summary

    Noctis never pretended to make peace with the idea that his future always came with the cost of the loss of a king, but he had at least steadied himself to the idea of watching a slow, graceful decline into the grave. Not this. Never this.

    Summary

    People will do anything to survive the next battle, and if salvaged imperial tech will deflect a killing blow from a daemon, they’ll gladly wear it no matter its origin.

    Summary

    People saw the BDSM lifestyle as a nice escape; listen to your Dominant, live a rich life. However, the small boy did not see it like that. He saw it as signing his freedom away. And although a part of him wanted to scream from the rooftops how unfair it was, then jump from that very rooftop, he couldn’t. It was sub instinct.

     

    He had to obey.

    Summary

    Working in Starfleet, Leonard McCoy has experienced some pretty damn obscure sorrows. Hell, even outside of Starfleet, his life's been no picnic. But looking back, looking back at the peculiar feelings he's had and the life he's lived, he can't really say he's regretted any of it.

    Or, snapshots of one Leonard McCoy, as described by the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows.

    Summary

    n. frustration with how long it takes to get to know someone—spending the first few weeks chatting in their psychological entryway, with each subsequent conversation like entering a different anteroom, each a little closer to the center of the house—wishing instead that you could start there and work your way out, exchanging your deepest secrets first, before easing into casualness, until you’ve built up enough mystery over the years to ask them where they’re from, and what they do for a living.

    Summary

    Happiness. It only lasts if you don't see it - like the one man that's stuck in the back of a photo; ever present but not really there until you begin to pick. Picking at it and trying to make sense of it with numbers and words and logic will only make it evanescent - thinking it all away. Sherlock can never stop thinking.

    Pointless Drabble. Slash if you see it that way.

    Summary

    It was something they couldn't quite name, like a melody in your mind that you can't quite grasp as it dances just out of reach. This feeling was beyond what our simple language could encapsulate.
    A series of one shots.
