    Summary

    She’s right, because Lexa has been in love with Clarke for years now, and she’s not over it. Sometimes it dulls, like when she was dating Costia, but it’s always there. She thinks she’s safe, and then Clarke is there, kissing Lexa’s cheek and pressing up against Lexa’s side, and Lexa falls in love over and over and over again.

    But she’ll get over it. Probably.

    (Or, the story of how Clarke gets her shit together.)

    Summary

    Some things Maddie learns about Julie over the next few weeks:

    She's from Aberdeen. She's afraid of heights. She drinks her tea when it's still at a temperature that would scald normal people's mouths. She doesn't even blow on the surface to cool it. She favours red nails and red lipstick and a perfect, beautiful, sleek French twist in her hair, even on the days she's waiting outside the door at seven in the morning for someone to open up and let her in. She swears, beautifully and often, scattering foul words and phrases throughout her speech like seasoning on a plate of food. When she laughs or yawns or burps, she has a habit of pressing the back of her fingers against her mouth, then when she realises she's doing it she frowns and grabs a paper napkin to wipe the smears of lipstick off her knuckles. She likes old swing music, Katharine Hepburn, robins, Beethoven, and cherry bakewells.

    "You're staring again," Dympna whispers one morning in late November, and Maddie spins around and starts furiously cleaning the glass pastry case to pretend that she wasn't.

    (Request: modern coffee shop AU, fluff, tenderness.)

    Summary

    Hope misses Amy. Quite a bit. They’ve messaged whenever they can with both of their hectic schedules, usually only able to talk once a day so conversations don’t flow easily as even simple ones can span a week. That’s why it brings a smile to her face when she sees Amy’s name as she picks up her phone after it vibrates.

     

    Snapshots of Hope's first year at college while Amy is in Botswana and how they are making it work. Follows a couch in any other country would feel as sweet.
