    Of course that's when some guy comes along and ruins everything.

    It pretty horrifying how hard that is to remember, everytime he's around.

    "...and this is my fiancee, Isak."

    His teeth are different, is the first, asinine thought that Even's mind chooses to come up with, followed by, When did he have braces?

    As he reaches out to shake the hand of the guy who was once - quite literally - the man of his dreams.

    He tries to stay perfectly still, tries to ignore the jolt that goes through his entire body when their palms touch, and their fingers wrap around each other--

    Isak's eyes seem to grow a little wider, darker, at their contact-- Even tells himself he's obviously imagining it.

    Because he knows his own face is perfectly normal and friendly and not giving away a single hint of what his heart is doing inside of his chest right now.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    When comparing all the daydreams and fantasies Eve Polastri has ever had about the lethal woman who used to be called Oksana Astankova, the one in which they're alone on a raft, in the middle of a still and silent lake, is by far her favourite. There have been hundreds of daydreams, of course, ranging from food fights and Christmas Day to slit throats and broken legs, but this one is the only one where she feels like she's getting what she needs the most; a window into the mystery that is Oksana.

    Summary

    "Matteo is like a weed that won’t stop growing, little petals flowering between David’s ribs and fingers and heart-strings. David is good at pulling weeds. He has made an art of being rootless.

    But these weeds grow deep. And every time he thinks he’s removed them all, another one grows."

    (Or, Druck s3 from David's POV, through ep 5 clip 2).

    David see The Boy in the hallway. Dirty-blonde hair, dirty sweater. The softest pinkest mouth. David wants to push his thumb between those lips. He wants to draw them with his finger; he wants to draw them with a pen. Pale throat he wants to kiss. Soft blue bedroom-eyes.

    The Boy keeps his locker unlocked. The Boy never looks at his friends. The Boy falls asleep against walls and desks and the crook of his arms. The Boy hugs himself, as if he doesn’t even know he’s doing it.

    David sees him everywhere.

    A few thick, curly strands of hair stick out of Isak’s sealskin cap, lined with snow crystals. His hands are working on the metal box in front of him, arms lifted in a position that always makes Even wonder how he manages. Working like that for hours on end. It requires a certain strength, a stubbornness. A determination that Even isn’t sure he has himself. Makes him wonder what Isak’s arms look like – if they’re equally tough, sinewy, strong as his mind.

    As Even moves a little on the pillow, another fragrant whiff hits Isak’s nose – and when he lifts his head, he sees why. A chunk of dried-up gingerbread dough, tousled into a tuft of hair behind Even’s ear.
