    Summary

    The first conscious movement Laudna makes each morning when she wakes is to run her tongue along the backs of her teeth. It is a habit born out of the necessity of anchoring herself back into her own body after a night of dreams that replayed the moment when her life was taken from it. Echoes suspended without a participating body, visions of fine silverware and heady charcuterie, slack ropes being pulled taught...

    aka another fic where Imogen and Laudna (successfully or unsuccessfully) cope with their traumas through sex.

    Summary

    Clarke has never been the other woman before, so she doesn't know exactly how it's supposed to work, but she's pretty sure the usual fallout doesn't include hooking up with her boyfriend's other girlfriend.

    Summary

    It's not like this is the first time she's slept with her best friend. First time she's slept with the best friend who has no chance of impregnating her, maybe. Which, really, can only be seen as a plus.

    Summary

    She's seen these girls all her life, at her parents' holiday parties, on skiing vacations, shopping at the grander bazaars and sipping cocktails at late suppers after the ballets her father used to take her to. She always thought they were just for decoration. Now that River can hear them think, she's amazed that they each have their own lives, their own brains, moods, personalities.
