    Summary

    “If this is a crazy Helioic cult, wouldn’t it have been better to find some nice lady spy to come with you? Or literally any one of our female friends?”

    “Adaine’s too recognizable, Fig’s taken, and Kristen has a mullet.” Riz ticks them off on his fingers. “Besides, having a male partner makes me an outsider. It gives them something to sink their teeth into.”

    “I see,” Fabian says with a grin, “I’m bait.”

    “You’re not bait.”

    “I’m set dressing,” Fabian amends, taking another slice of pizza. “I’m honored.”

    [OR Riz is tasked with taking down a cult from the inside, and Fabian is along for the ride.]

    Summary

    When Ragh meets Dayne his standard for interactions twists and changes, like his entire personality was nurtured and built on a fault line. Like the first bird to take flight, crash, and break its neck. A new and exciting thing, destined to go down in flames.

    Ragh gets worse before he gets better.

    (or; body pos character study internalized homophobia/fatphobia fic about ragh's life and backstory. READ THE TAGS, this one gets a little heavy)

    Summary

    Then, Pete says, “Hey, can I braid your hair?” and it’s all downhill from there.

    Summary

    “So it could just be…a friend?” Cody asks, a strange look on his face. Pete nods, furrowing his brow slightly.
    “Yeah, sure,” Pete says. Cody just keeps looking at him, that same look on his face, as if he’s holding out a weapon to Pete and expecting him to do something terrible with it. Then, it clicks. “Oh. You mean a friend like me.”

    Pete finds out Cody doesn't have a lot of romantic experience. He decides to step up and do what any good friend/mentor would. The results are...troubling.

    Summary

    And last but not least: Prof. al-Kaysani got married last week! And while he has explicitly asked for no fuss to be made, we have organised a small gift and a card that you are all welcome to sign. It will be on my desk until September 7th.

    Best,

    Dr. Quynh Pham
    Course Leader BA (Hons) Curating

    Nile’s eyes are stuck on the word ‘married’. Her mouth drops open, toast falling into her lap without her noticing.

    Married. 

    “The fuck?”
