    Summary

    reverdie (n): an old French poetic genre, which celebrates the arrival of spring. Literally, it means "re-greening". Often the poet will encounter Spring.

    In another life, perhaps Griffin Callenreese has just one-tenth of a point less of a GPA. Perhaps he doesn't get the scholarship he hoped for, and enlists in the military to avoid loans instead. Perhaps he finds himself overseas in a hell of sandstorms and bullets, where one of his own so-called brothers-in-arms completely and utterly destroys his mind. Perhaps there is no one left to save poor little Aslan Jade, and his life spirals into a greater tragedy than either of them could ever have imagined.

    This is not that life.

    In this life, he is within reach when Aslan needs saving. In this life, two brothers stick together. In this life, they carve out their own definitions of "family" and "love" and "happy endings".

    In this life, perhaps they'll even find those happy endings, too.

    Summary

    A brief, tender moment between Eiji and the love of his life. Will Ash ever stop demanding hair pets? And will Eiji ever stop cracking terrible jokes just to hear him groan?

    (No and no, but perhaps the fun is more in the asking than the answers.)

    Summary

    So it’s okay to die here, right? It’s not ... suicide. Not really. Not when the person dying is someone who never should have existed in the first place. It’s just putting the universe back in order. Taking a thorn out of the side of Lady Luck or Mother Earth or God or whatever the fuck kind of deity you pray to when your soulmate was shot and all you want in the world is for him to survive instead of you.

    And he does.

    And you don’t.

    And it’s okay.

    Everything is as it should be.

    Ash survives, too.

    Summary

    “You were willing to sacrifice everything for me, once, and now you don’t have to.”

    A memory flashes through Ash’s mind—of holding a gun to his own head and pulling the trigger, no hesitation. And he sits there, head on Eiji’s shoulder, with the knowledge that he would do it again in a heartbeat.

    “Yeah,” Ash whispers. “I’m ... glad I don’t have to. Anymore.”

    Eiji is silent for a moment, and Ash knows he’s doomed.

    “Fuck,” he whispers.

    Eiji explains that there's more to love than sacrifice.

    Summary

    Ash laughs, a little—a lot—bitter. “It’s too bad I’m fucked up, yeah? A face like this, a brain like mine, a body—I mean—I could have been someone.”

    “You are someone, Ash,” Eiji whispers. “And that has nothing to do with your intelligence or your appearance.”

    Ash doesn’t respond.

    Sometimes all it takes is a word or a touch to hurt. Sometimes all it takes is a word or a touch to heal.
