    Summary

    I think we can all agree on one thing: If you don’t put lemon zest in your lemon bars, you’re wrong.

    Summary

    She would sit on the ocean floor for hours on end if it wouldn’t hurt her lungs so damn bad. She’s tempted, every once in a while, if she’s being completely honest. It’s a good method of running away from her problems. It’s not like it’d kill her or anything. Or — not permanently, at least. It’d definitely kill her several times over, it just wouldn’t stick.

    (And technically, it’s not “running” away from your problems if you’re swimming.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The air is soft and beautiful as she drags her knuckles through the scalding sand.

    Some days fill it with smoke and chill and salt, but she doesn’t mind those either, in moderation. Most days, it’s just heat, a glaring sort of heat, the kind that radiates into her muscles until she sinks into its pull like a very welcome coma.

    Today, though, the sky is perfectly clear, a slick, deep blue, green tendrils of foliage streaking upwards like gentle claws. In regions inland — deserts especially, those awful places, New Mexico and Arizona and the sort — the blue is unflinchingly pure: un-tinted, untainted, and migraine-inducingly light. Everything looks like it’s been bleached to hell and back. Farther north, the skies are blanketed almost year-round by a grey slate of clouds that makes the woods look much more profoundly dark and secretive in comparison. It’s a good look for about two weeks, until the charm wears off and the forests are just forests again. Clouds up north are nature’s way of slapping an instagram filter over shitty scenery.

    Summary

    Looking from his tattered copy of Heavensward to the portal and back again, the Crystal Exarch sighs.
    They are no more a hero than he is a fool.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He takes hold of the smooth, near pearlescent one whose perch on the top of the pile could not have been a coincidence, and watches as the Warrior of Light’s hands rest over his. They whisper in his ear, patient and diaphanous, with words that are no more sound than they are an idea. The transferring of energy, the fracturing of a whole, worlds and being made one so strongly that they would never shatter.

    Crystal had consumed him, that day, and he woke on the First with the blue of his arm having spilled from forearm to shoulder and past the bulwark of his heart and lungs.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Hold the rail, and think: at least he's alive.

    Juno Steel is alive and well in this city, doing what Juno Steel will do.

    He just doesn't want you.
