    Summary

    The smile this dredges up in Druig is brighter and more radiant than anything a Celestial could conjure, and Makkari thinks, there it is. The sun.

    So they lie there, on the duvet, under the stars, centuries worth of lost time stitched together as they breathe their own galaxy into existence.

     

    or,
    Makkari and Druig decide to take a vacation after the Emergence and before they leave Earth, where they talk and stargaze. Sensibly.

    Summary

    “I don’t know what to do.”

    There were unshed tears in her eyes, and he had to blink away his own in order to focus. He knew exactly what she meant, because after all they had learnt and all they had lost- what was next?

    “C’mere.” He said, extending his hand which she took without hesitation.

    or the first night in South Dakota after the Emergence.

    Summary

    Eternally running, Makkari is a force of movement as the sun is a force of light. She is infinite, but faltering in the wake of so much wretched loss. Even the wind needs a home to come back to when the winter's faded and the meadows thawed, and to her, there is only one place that brings her such peace.

    And that is wherever he is.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Beltane. Tally. Alder.

    “Um… General... I don’t… I do not want to misinterpret anything. Or overstep. Or embarrass myself any worse than I already have, but… I’m having kind of a hard time… thinking?”

    And what an excellent way for a witch to burn.

    Summary

    Ava sighs, wishing there was anywhere, else she could go that was safe, anywhere in the world that meant she wouldn't have to face Sara, and then opens a portal to the Waverider, bag in hand.

    The bridge is full when she arrives, and within seconds, there are seven weapons of various kinds pointed at her head. It’s not surprising. There’s no way of telling how long they’ve known about the Time Bureau. It could’ve been minutes, or it could’ve been days.

    She drops the bag. It hits the ground with a soft thud, and her hands go slowly to her head.

    Summary

    Deep down, Faith knows that she should have expected this. The dream of Buffy falling through the sky didn’t repeat itself every night for nothing. It was a warning. A message.

    But no dream in existence could have prepared Faith to live in a world where Buffy Summers is dead. It doesn’t seem possible to her.

    Summary

    The “Partners Weekend” at Merrick Industries was a bit of a joke, and in more ways than one. Who actually had time to spend a long couples weekend with people you worked with? But Joe had slaved away too many hours at his desk to blow off his chance at a promotion just like that. Particularly when all he had to actually do for it was spend a weekend in some manor house in the English countryside with his colleagues.

    Which led him to his current predicament: Who of his friends would agree to pose as his spouse for four days – and at one week’s notice?

    Double fake-dating AU: Joe asks Quynh to pretend to be his wife for an important work social at Merrick Industries. Andy brings her good friend Nicky under a similar guise. Only of course none of them is actually straight, and of course none of them is willing to admit that.

    A dumbasses-to-lovers story.

    Summary

    Nicolò looks sheepish. "I killed you yesterday, and you awoke at the same time, the same place. But when I die, I wake at different times, different places. This bolt," he tosses it to Yusuf and it lands in the dirt by his knee, "it killed me yesterday, but I woke up many years from now. I lived several lifetimes in those places before returning here and pulling it from my neck."

     

     

    Nicky's lives and deaths are different. He is unstuck from time - at every death he revives into a different point in his life. Each time he is struck down he wonders, will he awaken to deserts and swords? Will it be gunshots in cities? Joe and Nicky build a fractured life together, falling in love across two different sets of centuries, then patiently waiting for the other to fall in love too. He meets the rest of their little family out of order, but they still build a family around Nicky's involuntary time-traveling.

    Summary

    With a final sigh, Lena wrenches the door open, and ends up with an armful of tall blonde as the mystery visitor – who had clearly been leaning on it – lurches forwards. Her taser hits the carpet, and the woman rights herself again, apologizing profusely.

    “Shit, sorry Alex, you just took so long and –“ Finally, bright blue eyes track up Lena’s bare legs and silk robe all the way to her face, widening comically.

    “You…are not Alex.”

    OR

    Lena and Alex, two strangers recovering from breakups, swap houses over the holidays for a spur-of-the-moment trip. Neither of them expected to find a holiday fling – but what happens on vacation, stays on vacation. Right?

    AKA: The Holiday is one of my favourite Christmas romcoms, so I decided to make it gay. And half Jewish.

    Summary

    Dinah isn’t stupid, even with painkillers dulling her senses and the ache of her injury pulsing faintly through her skull. She knows that these two women — Helena and Renee, she has to remind herself — haven’t told her everything, not with doctors and nurses still milling around, but in between the countless tests and scans and lectures about 'retrograde amnesia' and 'memory retrieval' and 'most likely temporary' and 'wait and see', Dinah hasn’t had a spare moment to ask them who they really are — and what they really are to her.

    All she knows is that, though the shorter of the two is in and out, making calls and bringing coffee and talking in a brusque, efficient tone belied by the concern in her eyes, the taller woman never leaves — only stepping out to give Dinah privacy, and even that is marked by just the slightest hesitation.

    Like she’s used to staying — like whoever Dinah is now would want her to stay.
    ---
    Dinah loses her memory, leaving Helena struggling to pick up the pieces and wondering if their lives will ever be the same.

    Summary

    Helena's mother tells her she was born of love, and Helena used to believe her. She saw the way her mother looked at her father, how they danced around the kitchen to some old lyricless music. How her father would always, always make sure to kiss her and Pino good night before he'd go into his study. Her parents exuded love.

    Until they didn't.

    Summary

    Crack the shutters open wide
    I wanna bathe you in the light of day
    And just watch you as the rays
    Tangle up around your face and body
    I could sit for hours
    Finding new ways to be awed each minute
    'Cause the daylight seems to want you
    Just as much as I want you
    --- Crack the Shutters, Snow Patrol
