  3. Summary

    chiaroscuro: the interplay of darkness and light.

    --

    “We’re called guardians,” Kuro says. “Over time, people have had different names for us, but it really all comes back to that. We’re shifters, shaper-changers… the name doesn’t really matter. What does is that we’re supposed to keep the two kinds of magical forces in the world balanced.” He rattles this off with a roll of his eyes, as though it’s something he’s heard many times over.

    Kenma thinks back to the curling snake made of shadows, to Sugawara’s words: People who shine brightly attract a lot of darkness.

    “Shadows and light,” he says, not quite a question.

    Kuro nods approvingly. “Basically, yeah. There’s a bit more to it than that—shadow magic is born of independence, of isolation and loneliness. Light magic is connections, the relationships between people. Most people have a low dose of both, go through their entire lives not realizing there’s magic in the world.”

    “But not you,” Kenma prompts.

    “Unfortunately.”

    Summary

    Namjoon is in love, and he is secure in the warm and all-consuming pull of it whenever Seokjin smiles at him. He is rather hopelessly in love and convinced that the two of them are ready for the next big step – but instead Seokjin begins to pull back. Namjoon has never quite figured out how Seokjin works, but this apparent case of cold feet is nothing that a bit of confident wooing can’t fix. He’s definitely got this! (Dear reader, he did not have it.)

    “Hey,” he said, and Seokjin looked to him, an eyebrow arched. He held Seokjin’s gaze, firm and warm – a little overwhelmed by the affection pulsing in him. “Move in with me.”

    Seokjin blinked. “What?”

    He fought off a smirk. “You heard me.”

     Seokjin looked carefully blank, heat creeping up the back of his neck as he began to fish out the teabags with, “You shouldn’t joke about that.”

    Summary

    Seokjin is not looking for a relationship – he’s been there, done that, lesson learned. So when he somehow ends up in a fuck buddy arrangement with supposed one-night-stand Namjoon, he knows that he needs to handle the fling without emotionally compromising himself. He’s definitely got this! (Dear reader, he did not have it.)

    Namjoon dropped the used condom onto the floor – gross – and said, “So, you have issues with sex.”

    Seokjin blinked at the virtual stranger whose bed he was in. “What the fuck? No, I don’t.” He processed the words. “Hey! Fuck you!”
