    What you want and what you know to be true are battling up against each other like animals, tusks locked, breathing heavy into the twilight.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    You go back, because that's what is expected of you. In the noise, that's what you know. You settle into the chair, bite down on unyielding rubber, and wait.

    Nothing happens. 

    Time is only relevant to you when there's a deadline; sitting there, in the empty vault, it runs together. You count the hours with cold fingers, tapping out seconds, then minutes, then hours. Eventually, you fall into something not quite resembling sleep, and when the world is sharp again, you spit out the mouth guard and leave. Everything is wrong.

    Dennis wants to call Artemis and say, Please, tell me what I am, like the last of the creatures in the Garden of Eden waiting for a name, waiting to find out what he’s going to be. He wants to be done with this part, the interminable wait for the executioner’s blade, so that he can get on to whatever comes next without ever having to wonder about this again. He just wants something to happen so he can start picking up the pieces when it’s all over.

    Summary

    Ye Baiyi must really, really want to fuck him, Xie thinks. Maybe when he’s asleep Xie can drop poison in his ear. Or steal any treasures he carries. How has he lived this long if he’s actually this stupid?

    “Are you not finished?” Xie says. Ye Baiyi grins at him.

    “I’d have you again now,” he says, frankly. “I’d fuck you for a week if I thought you could keep up.”

    It's surprising. Xie's not sure why.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Children of wide countries know that there are times that you buy a plane ticket for three days out, if you have that kind of money, and there are times when you hang up the phone and within half an hour you are in the ancient family car, about to drive three thousand miles.

    Lan Zhan is a child of two wide countries, really. He gets in the car.

    “Let me guess,” Boya said with a tilt of his head to the side. Qingming hoped he made some sort of face or gesture that indicated he could, because he wasn’t quite sure his voice would be steady with even one word just yet. Guessing was a game Qingming was particularly susceptible to, since it allowed him a world of insight into the other’s mindset, and they usually proved something to him, one way or another. He was surprised, enchanted that Boya already knew that about him, although they had never played before.

    “Fight you?” A beat. “No. Cut off their hair?”

    Qingming only smiled. Boya’s eyes narrowed. His upper lip rose, shifting into a sneer. “You didn’t tell them to str-“

    “Now now, you are the one thinking that, not me,” He had to reply, having luckily gathered up enough wits and a steady voice. Everything was fine. Everything was normal and he was in love with Boya. Nothing had changed, from one beat to the next.

    (I'm never going to recover from this oh my god)
