    Summary

    “It was him,” he says quietly. “It was Touya.”

    Shouto’s lip curls downward in disgust. Fuyumi looks down at her mug and will not meet his eyes. Enji cannot bring himself to argue with them.

    “I knew you were rotten,” Shouto tells him. “But I never knew you could drive someone that far.”

    Summary

    Keith takes a swim, gains a secret admirer, and finds something to live for.

    There's a cut on his bottom lip, a row of tiny lacerations that smart when he pulls at them to get a better look.

    He doesn't notice the bruise on his upper arm until the next day. He catches the edge of it at the corner of his eye when he's pulling on a fresh shirt: blue lines, like stripes, but when he turns and twists to see how they ring his arm, he realizes what they look like.

    The lines are like fingers. It’s a handprint.

    He does not expect solace or gratification from him, but something living in his chest learns to falter sweet-sore as the years pass.

    Summary

    The first thing Percival Graves does after being released back into the world is buy a new wand. The Aurors recovered his ebony wand from Grindelwald but Graves can’t even look at it, let alone pick it up. He goes to Greymalkin’s the minute he’s let out of the hospital and tries half a dozen wands. Some spark, a few smoke, but only one really works. The wand that chooses him is raw aspen, whiter than bone and so rough that Graves gives himself a splinter conjuring up a storm of brilliant red birds.

    Greymalkin eyes the wand distrustfully. “Eleven and a half inches,” he says, sounding sour. “With a dragon heartstring core. One of Ollivander’s. Shoddy work, if you ask me.”

    The wand hums against his fingertips. Graves buys it, tucks it up under his sleeve, and keeps it there, splinters and all, until he manages to fall into a fitful sleep later that night.

    The second thing Graves does is quit his job, because honestly.

    The third thing Graves does is get jumped by Credence Barebone in an alley.
