    a year and a day: a love story told in moments

    ---

    This was his last chance to back out. The merman thought of the myths that had come before him. He wished.

    "Yes," said the merman.

    "A year and a day," said the witch.

    Summary

    Iruka didn't know how it had happened, nor why. The reality was thus: he was a 16-year-old not-quite-master waterbender in an unfamiliar world. He had no frame of reference, no home, and no reason to go on living; until the three children.

     

     

    Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.
    -Seneca

    Summary

    Reigen and Mob- it's a question of faith, always. Faith in one another, faith in themselves.

    Reigen struggles with it much more than he lets on.

    (Or: a discussion of Reigen's understanding of his and Shigeo's dynamic through the lens of an ordinary, boring day.)

    Summary

    His grace is burning out, and the wasteland it leaves inside him becomes an echo chamber for all the memories, all the fear and doubt and self-loathing he's collected over the years. Things said and done hound him on endless repeat until he's convinced they’ll break through his skin and fill the silence of the bunker.

    His head is killing him, and he sits hunched over an open book, not really reading, just digging his fingers into his skull and praying nothing slips through the cracks.
