23 Nov 2021
Jamie Taylor is seven years old and prepared for anything when she meets Dani Clayton.
She is eleven when she loses her.
Jamie Taylor is eighteen when the world brings them back together, unprepared and absolutely not ready to face her- god does she hope this isn't going to end badly.
(With her track record, she's not holding her breath.)
AKA: Dani and Jamie through the years- from elementary school to university, and all that comes after.

Quiet nights like this are Amelia’s favourite.
She doesn’t get many of them nowadays, what with Scout and a shortage of surgeons and constant flights to and from Minnesota. The past three months have been hectic to say the least- trying to cure Parkinsons sure isn’t a walk in the park (not that she’d expected it to be) and being a single mom whilst flying across the country multiple times a week to work on a ground-breaking surgical procedure is kind of kicking her ass, if she’s being totally honest.
Here, in Minnesota with Kai Bartley working quietly next to her, Amelia finds she can just exist. Here, there are no screaming babies, no sickeningly sweet newlyweds, no ex-boyfriends waiting around every corner with puppy-dog eyes and a victim complex to match. Here, there is only the gentle tap of fingers on keyboards, the soft murmur of questions about stem cells and surgeries, the soothing presence of someone who is rapidly becoming important to Amelia beside her. It’s peaceful. Safe. Quiet.
And if Kai Bartley happens to be a big part of why nights like this are Amelia’s favourite, well. Nobody has to know about that.
Tomorrow (or, she supposes, later today), Scylla knows she probably won’t remember much of tonight. She’s had enough to drink to be aware of and mostly fine with that particular fact. She knows she’ll have a pounding headache, will probably throw up at least a couple of times, and will tell Anacostia she’s never drinking again (a bare-faced lie if there ever was one).
But, if one thing stays with her it will be this. Raelle, gazing at her like she painted the stars in the sky, appointed the moon its ruler. Raelle, thumbs rubbing at the small of her back, smile so soft Scylla could cry. Raelle, her girlfriend, her best friend, the love of her life, leaning in to press an easy kiss to Scylla’s lips- a kiss full of new beginnings and old promises and an abundance of overwhelming love- before pulling back with a gentle grin.
“Happy New Year, beautiful.” She murmurs, resting her forehead against Scylla’s, eyes heart-achingly soft and raw.
“Happy New Year, Raelle.”

In some distant corner of her mind, Raelle recalls that there had been a plan.
Discussed and finalised with both Tally and Abigail the previous evening over dinner in the Great Hall, she vaguely remembers talk of going into Hogsmeade. Abigail had wanted to buy a new book on…something or other, and Tally had wanted to check out the new apothecary that had recently opened up in the little village.
It had been a good plan. A great plan, even.
This, Raelle thinks as she fights to contain a moan, Scylla’s tongue hot against her neck, had decidedly not been a part of it.

Deena loves her friends. Really, she does, more than she ever thought possible. Though they are few in numbers, they more than make up for it in their spirit, their loyalty, their unwavering acceptance of her. Their love, she knows, is something she is impossibly lucky to receive, day in, day out. She’d do anything for them, truly.
But if they interrupt her and Sam one more goddamn time, she’s gonna lose it.
