    Summary

    “Motorin’,” Kazuichi croons to the timing belt. His fingers drum along while he runs through the checklist for stripped parts.

    It’s cool, the whole rock scene? He’d tried guitar once, with the pink hair and the- everything- but it hadn’t stuck. None of it had, Kazuichi knows he’s still the same saggy loser, all paper doll dressed in cool people clothes. And then, get this, Hinata lets it slip that they’re not all that cool, after all. He’s just kind of flashy. Dumb looking. Fake. Maybe they could be, on someone cool. Like a coolness paradox.

    But the music is cool, and Kazuichi feels kind of cool too. By the end of the week, he knows the tapes front to back. His wrench taps along, he mouths the words. He forgets, for a minute, about the ruined wreck of an island they’re trying to reclaim.

    The island, though, it doesn’t exactly forget about him.

    ~~

    Kazuichi Soda learns a little something, at the end of the world.

    Summary

    Hajime blinks twice. He turns his head slowly, surveying the room. Togami has a pair of night vision goggles in his hand and he frowns down at them.

    “Defective. As expected of anything not manufactured by the Togami Group.” He says, disgusted.

    Owari’s nose twitches. “I smell blood.”

    Hajime lifts the tablecloth.

    Komaeda’s body lays beneath the table, face down, in a pool of blood. His face, even in death, is twisted into a despairing grin.

    “I guess you got what you wanted,” Hajime murmurs under the screaming, reaching out to gently close the eyelids over that pale fanatical gaze.

    ~~

    Hajime is almost expecting it, the first time Komaeda dies. The next one is a little harder.

    Summary

    Everyone in the Resistance makes a big deal of what the First Order takes from stormtroopers: family, home, agency, identity. Things no one's supposed to be able to take away, but it turns out to be easy, if cost-intensive: Finn's seen their accounts. In the places of these missing things, the Order set unity, belonging, order, victory: he's seen that, too, he's felt it, the throat raw with cheering, the advance in perfect formation, the pride in gleaming armor.

    When Finn thinks about what he's fighting for, what he's trying to get to, he can imagine things about it. Going about his day, making and eating food, meditating, sucking Poe's dick at some point, reading, sleeping—all in the knowledge that if anyone, anywhere, wanted to use someone else, treat them like a thing and not a person, they'd have to work hard and they wouldn't have help. He knows they theoretically need to do that in some particular place. But he doesn't know what the light is like there, what the air smells like, how the gravity feels.
