    Summary

    Sometimes they grow up together; sometimes they don't. Yang takes the dare, knocks into a girl at a club and finds the rest of her life; Blake stumbles onto the back of her motorcycle, misses death by minutes. They're inevitable and they like to prove it.

    a collection of one-shots from my tumblr.

    Summary

    They’re twenty when Blake breaks up with her; they’re twenty-one when Blake comes back. And, well, Yang’s method of dealing with that isn’t really conventional, even if it works.

    If you keep fucking me like this, Blake says, I won’t run away again, because I won’t even be able to walk.

    Summary

    Your perfect match, the test results read, and Blake's name imprints in its bold, black type against the backs of her eyelids. Honestly, neither of them are even remotely surprised. It's been two years. An official excuse doesn't make it any easier, until it does.

    Do you know what this means? Blake asks.

    Yeah, Yang says. I'm so in love with you that even a fucking machine can tell. Ugh.

    Summary

    Yang's fourteen the first time she meets her soulmate, but not according to the color of her eyes. Her heart, though - her heart's a different story. Blake turns her back on fate, wants to believe there's a love that belongs to her. It's one more thing they don't talk about.

    I swear, Yang says, I swear it should've been you.

    Summary

    Blake looks at her and swears she can see the particles of the universe settling, can see them laid out and miraculous like a map of fates for gods, can see the stars all spinning at her from underneath a sky that could very well be a dark, murky ocean. The truth is that it's been six years of too much fear and not enough skin. This is the anatomy of breaking down.

    Date me, Yang says, which seems like a great idea at the time.

    Summary

    Blake Belladonna looks exactly like the music she plays: heavy beats and low bass lines and a voice that sounds like a caution sign. Yang rolls the ball of her tongue piercing against the roof of her mouth, watches Blake sing with her lips against the microphone, a calling, a turning point. Blake falls into her arms with a laugh; Yang's more pop-punk but now she's getting into love.

    I figured out what I believe in, Yang says.

    Music? Blake asks.

    You.

    Summary

    She kisses Yang back just as furiously, teeth biting on her bottom lip hard enough to hurt, and when they part her swollen lip is the only thing Blake’s able to comprehend - how pretty Yang looks without her cocky smile, when her mouth is relegated to other things and can’t fucking speak. How pretty she looks when she’s so close Blake can barely see the details, cataloging the sun setting against a lavender sky and the tip of her tongue slipping out to wet her lips. Oh, but that’s later; they’ll deny this, first. It’s just better for business.

    What, Yang says, do I look like I'm made of money?

    Yes, Blake thinks of saying. Yes, you kind of do. Like the world owes you just for living.

    Summary

    It's always supposed to be simpler than it is: a contract, a kill, a payment. Maybe the world's a little safer; maybe the vampires retain their peace just a little longer. That's what used to count as a good day.

    But now Yang steps too close, smells like salt and rosewood, looks like the kind of sex that ends with Blake’s fangs sinking into the side of her neck, blood filling up her mouth. Let’s open the windows to the rain, she thinks of saying. Let’s flood the room, let’s turn down the lights.

    Let me see you in the dark.

    Summary

    It starts at a party on a Friday night, as things in college ordinarily do. She's drunk with a loose grip around a series of bad habits. One of them takes her to bed, and then does it again, and again, and again. They've all seen the movies. Yang should've interpreted them as warning signs.

    I don't want to talk about love, Blake says.

    Well, Yang answers, I don't want to feel it.

    Summary

    She’s staring at Blake like she’s giving up, like she loves her, like she’s handing her that sky. Take this, she’s saying, this clap of thunder, this wildfire waiting to start. Take this like it’s my heart.

    Blake runs away, and only after realizes what she's been running to. I've seen enough destruction, Yang says. Sometimes it's nice just to watch the flowers bloom.

    Summary

    It’s been a year but Yang knows her, knows what her body means in the way it moves, knows every tilt of her mouth, every blink, every beat of her heart, every chamber of it, the way it bruises and bleeds and bumps against her chest. I’ve lived there, Yang thinks of telling her, please let me leave. But Blake is silent and doesn’t move.

    The truth is easy for Yang to see until it isn't. I love you, Blake says. It's the only reason I've ever done anything.

    There you go, Yang says, lying again.

    Summary

    In another life, Beacon never falls and Blake is a little less haunted.

    She doesn't even know when it starts, to be honest; the attraction seems to always just be there, like a possession she's owned forever with a long-faded label, the maker's mark now washed out and forgotten. Let me take you out, Yang says with a smile. Another day and it's Blake, fingers knotted in Yang's hair, sighing against her mouth.

    Sun never stood a chance, and the thought doesn't bother him at all.
