    Summary

    It all began with a spark.

    A small spark that landed on the nape of his neck. Small, so it didn’t burn. Barely warm enough to feel. Easy to ignore.

    But more sparks came. Bigger, brighter, hotter. They landed on his skin and stung for his attention. Heating his body until he could no longer ignore the sparks.

    And oh, how he tried to stop it. He snuffed them out as they came, ignored the marks they left. Pushed away the thoughts those sparks brought; distracted himself when they tried to overtake him in the night. But it was never enough.

    Because without realizing, he had become flammable.

    And that first spark on his skin had turned him to fire.

    Summary

    “I believe this is as good a place as any to share my story, don’t you think?” Lance raises his voice before it melds in with the lyrical jazz drifting from the corner of the speakeasy. The dim light from the lamps casts strange shadows across both their faces.

    Keith blinks one, two, three times before Lance’s words sink in. Pulling out a small journal and a pen he always keeps on his person, he catches Lance’s lips quirking in surprise as a short chuckle escapes him.

    “My, aren’t you prepared?”

    “I am a writer,” Keith responds. “And thank you, for helping me.”

    (or Keith is a writer in 1920s America and Lance is (basically) his muse)

    Summary

    And that, well. That Lance gets. It’s what always pulled him towards the sky; everything is stretched so far it’s as if he could see everything, but he knows he’s not actually seeing anywhere near the all the secrets that infinite space held. It was everything and nothing, and he was somewhere in between.

    So he hums in understanding, forcing his eyes away from Keith and back toward the stars. The fight leaves him at the honesty in Keith’s voice, and even Lance knows better than to break whatever fragile thing hangs between them right then. It’s too tight and new, like a fresh scar just waiting for the right pressure to split open again.

     

    Or, where these two boys have something fragile and try to learn how to keep it safe.

    Summary

    "I was just gonna ask," Lance mutters at last, sounding almost embarrassed. "What do you miss most?"

    Keith lets that sink into the air for a second, as though its meaning will become clearer the longer it's there.

    "What do I—?" He shakes his head. "I'm sorry; I don't—"

    "About Earth, dingus," Lance cuts him off with an exasperated sigh. He gestures vaguely with both hands. "What do you miss most about Earth?"

    Five conversations.
