    Lio Fotia: The Man Behind the Myth
    April 23, 2049
    By Benjamin Giraud

    We all know his name by now. Leader of the Mad Burnish, the inferno terrorists. He had been arrested barely a week before, apprehended by Galo Thymos and Burning Rescue 3rd Division; and just hours previous, he had gone on a burning rampage through the city.

    But when I first encounter him, he is bringing a water bottle to a tired volunteer. In fact, I don't even recognize him at first. Covered in ash and without the patented leather jacket, he looks like any other disaffected citizen. I snap a picture of him as has become habit, but it's only later that I truly learn who my subject is.

    Lio Fotia is something else. His voice is quiet, but it commands attention when he speaks. He gives orders definitively, and when he does not know the answer he has the grace to direct you to the person who does.

    Or: the aftermath of saving the world, through social media.

    Summary

    "There's not much of a 'normal'," Lio admits. "I've heard of it happening. But it's not like we could keep very good records amongst ourselves on the run, or in prison. So we're kinda making it up as we go."

    They both consider this in curious silence.

    "Maybe we should start making the records, then."

    Summary

    Lio remembers the solemn peace of his slowing heartbeat, skin fraying to cinders, the gray of nothingness before a blessed warmth and softness crashes defiantly against him -

    Galo has no idea what he's done.

    Summary

    Gueira and Meis know, everyone knows. Lio and Galo are absolutely fucking, but they’re decidedly not dating. Nobody ever talks about it, though, except for the one time Meis tried to bring it up after Lio spent two hours staring at the popcorn ceiling of his room listening to the Cocteau Twins on full blast.

    Now the question Lio is faced with is: what the fuck do you get your decidedly not-boyfriend who you sleep with several times a week as a secret Santa gift?

    Summary

    When Lio Fotia carelessly ends up trapped in a tide pool close to shore, he does his best to hide from humans and just hopes he escapes unscathed.

    Then Galo Thymos, lifeguard extraordinaire, stumbles upon him accidentally and can't rest until he's rescued.

    And when the humans hunting Lio get too close, they both get more than they bargained for.
