    Summary

    Coined in 1817 by Scottish inventor David Brewster, "kaleidoscope" is derived from the Ancient Greek καλός (kalos), "beautiful, beauty", εἶδος (eidos), "that which is seen: form, shape" and σκοπέω(skopeō), "to look to, to examine", hence "observation of beautiful forms."

    [or: alex is reckless and sam's displeased response is to be more reckless in helping her. because they're both idiots.]

    [Kara] stumbles to a halt in the middle of the room, taking in the two of them clearing their throats and pushing away from each other, Sam’s hands moving from her pockets to her hips to her hair to her pockets again.

     

    “Wait,” Kara says slowly, pointing first at Alex, then at Sam, back and forth. Her eyes go wide, followed by her smile. “Finally! I thought you were never going to--”

     

    “Not another word,” Alex says, pointing sharply back at Kara. “Nothing from you.”

     

    Kara mimes zipping her mouth shut, only to manage barely three seconds before squealing and bolting across the room to hug Sam, then Alex.

    Summary

    “What’s the matter, Ceece?” he asks, wanting to push her bangs back but really not comfortable with the idea of touching her. His mother warned him this was going to happen one day if he didn’t just grow up about it. “You want to go to a doctor?”

    Somehow though he finds himself saying, “You can’t go home like this. I don’t like the idea of you being alone when this is going on. People die like this.” // Always and forever one of my very favorite fics! The fact that I've neglected to bookmark it until now is an utter travesty!

    ...They’re still figuring out their lines. If there even are lines to figure out, these days.

    It’s not until the afternoon that Cormoran remarks, waiting for the kettle to boil: “I wouldn’t make a habit of it.” When Robin looks to him, he adds: “that sofa will do your back in, if nothing else.”

    “It’s weird how something designed for comfort isn’t that comfortable,” Robin remarks, and this is how they let it go, this strange new milestone.

    Neela and Ray and life after everything!

    Six hours later he comes home with a cooler and an apologetic face. "Sorry. It was the closest location." He pulls out half a dozen cupcakes and a SuperJumbo JumboMart slushie packed in dry ice. // "What...? Oh." The fourth of July. // She can't be angry, not when he's putting a silly foam crown on her head. Not if he still thinks the day they met is worth commemorating.

    She accepts the coffee he offers, and it is exactly the way she drinks it; that he remembers despite the years, flusters her.
