    Summary

    Poker Night was simple enough. Show up at Clarke's every Thursday night. BYOB (no cans, always bottles), turn your phones off, don't get in the middle when Mom and Dad start to bicker, never mention Mt. Weather, and for the love of God don't bring any randos...It was simple. It really was. The thing about rules though? People can't help but break them.

    aka five times someone ruined Poker Night and the one time all bets were off.

    Summary

    “Clarke,” he says, voice rough, and it could almost be mistaken for a warning, like maybe he thinks that she’s crossing a line, except that she knows him too well for that, knows that this is him giving her an out—saying that if she wants to walk away right now and never talk about this again, she can.

    Instead, she twists her hand into his messy curls and kisses him.

    Summary

    The one where things get a little political, a little personal, and a little, uh, rhythmical. Titles all come from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Subtitled One Special Bride for Octavia's Brother, which should tell you all you need to know.

    Summary

    "You will come with us, and we will leave them alone."

    It's all Clarke could ask for, because she somehow knows that this was never a war they could finish, that there were always going to be too many of them to fight back against...and that she could never clearly divide between us and them, only dead and alive. And Anya is violent and mean but somehow seems fair as well, as if those terms were never exclusive, and maybe it won't be so awful.

    Clarke takes in a deep breath, and holds it, holds onto life with a steady count of the pauses in between heartbeats. This is life, and this is control, she is in control of her decisions.

    And she decides.

    "Take me back to my people." She stares at Anya in the same manner she is looked at, not glancing at the dead but looking cold and hard and like she could be a leader. "And I will leave with yours."

    Summary

    There's a war on, and she has the link to give away his location to his enemies in her boot, and she's pressed to his chest like he's the only thing in the world, kissing him hard with his hands in her hair, hard and hungry. Last meal.
