    Summary

    There’s no reason given for it, and Corvo doesn’t honestly expect one. He doesn’t ponder much on the why of things anymore, or tries not to. Corvo sleeps better when he doesn’t go rooting around in the dark for threads to pull on.

    That doesn’t stop him asking.

    Doesn’t stop his other self from sneering, either.

    “It’s almost precious,” the walking mirror, the him-that-isn’t-him drawls, familiar mouth hammered into an unfamiliar shape. He’s not much thinner, but there’s a starved look to him that leaves Corvo wanting to put a few more steps between them than there are. “You still think there’s a reason for any of it. That the reason matters.” The mouth curls sharper, flash of teeth, too bright. Like a rat’s. “Well it doesn’t.”

    Summary

    When they drop out of the hurtling nightmare of the wormhole, everything blends into nausea and the scream of alarms, the stars smearing into concentric loops outside their Lions.

    Keith grits his teeth, hauling helplessly at controls that were already damaged even before they got thrown out of the hangar, across the universe and back into space again. Arms and shoulders straining, muttering constantly under his breath, he tries to get any real response from his Lion, but the connection’s been reduced to just a faint wavering spark, like a candle about to go out.

    Finally Shiro brings his own Lion around and physically stops Keith’s uncontrolled spin. His voice sputters in over the com. “This is no good. We’re gonna have to find someplace to set down.”

    Summary

    “Fuck me,” Steve says, swallowing, watching Bucky’s pupils eat away the colour around them, feeling the reaction in a tremble under his hands. “Make me feel it.” He remembers that first time, in a colder room on scratchier sheets in a different world, smirks and adds: “I dare you.”

    Summary

    At this hour, the cryo chamber gives off the only real light in the room, a soft and circular glow like firelight. With the staff gone and the workstations dark, the walls and the ceiling look flung out, further away from where Steve sits on a padded bench at the edge of the light, where the shadows are fending for themselves.

    “We ought to get some music in here,” he says, like Bucky’s going to answer, or like he’s in a coma and still listening in some little corner of himself. “I don’t know how much new stuff you’ve even heard. Some of it’s not so bad. Maybe that’d give you and Sam something else to argue about.”

    Even talking in here is uncomfortable now, especially when the place is empty and Steve could convince himself he’s the only person awake in the entire building. His voice comes back too large and hollow off the gloomy walls. It’s starting to feel like praying.

    Summary

    It’s not like Vaughn has time to be hanging around the infirmary anyway.

    For the first week or so they don’t even have an infirmary, until someone asks him where they’re supposed to put the people who get limbs torn off by threshers, who get shot by bandits or burned by acid or who just manage to hurt themselves by combining sheer incompetence with rocks, high places, or fire.

    So they clear the rubble out of what used to be the executive lounge, make beds out of whatever they can find, and that’s where they put their wounded when Pandora grants them wounded. That’s where they put Rhys after the scavenging team brings him in, missing an arm and an eye and apparently his mind.

    Summary

    The plan comes apart almost as soon as the three of them enter the prison.

    Poe thought they were doing pretty good until that point. They got into the spaceport with their cover identities in place, made it onto the ship that delivers supplies and new prisoners to Kedai Station in the far Outer Rim, survived the trip with a bunch of bad-tempered and legitimate criminals with nothing more than some bruises and a headache, and got shoved through intake until they were finally spat out as official residents.

    The whole process had felt like being digested, but they had a mission to accomplish, so they tried to blend in and not get involved in any trouble. Poe assured Finn and Rey over and over that they’d be smuggled out on the same ship that brought them in, job done and back to base.

    So of course things start to go wrong immediately.

    Summary

    “Of course they’d send you,” Phasma says, the first time she’s spoken since they put her in here.

    “I volunteered,” FN-2187 tells her.

    “What a proud moment for you,” she says.

    “I didn’t,” the pilot says with an unpleasant little smirk as he leans against the wall, hand hanging next to the holster on his thigh.

    Summary

    Vaughn went through his entire first year and a half of college without going to places like this, except for maybe two or three incredibly awkward attempts to socialise in the first few weeks. He’s been just fine without trying it again since, thanks, but now here he is, for the second night this week, after the two times last week. After whole semesters of literally never leaving the campus. And why?

    A bright cry of, “You’re here!” flies out from behind the bar once he finally, minus a few compound fractures, reaches the front of the tidal wave of people. The words hit him a split-second before Rhys’ neon grin, and Rhys’ floppy hair, and Rhys’ shirt with the sleeve cut off around his cybernetic arm and the collar stretched down enough to show the beginnings of the tattoos on his chest, the whole handkerchief’s worth of fabric generally clinging obscenely to his body.

    Right.

    Summary

    “I don’t think this is really doing anything for me,” Noah says, making a face down at the bottle in his hand.

    Ronan snorts. “You’ve had half a beer,” he says, draining the last of his third. “Keep going, I guarantee it’ll do something.” He tries not to wonder about where the beer is actually going, gets a mental flash of beer leaking into soil from a duffel bag propped up like a tent around a scaffold of pilfered bones, and then really tries not to wonder. In a civilised world, the buzz should always come before the headache.

    Summary

    Once they’re done talking through the plan and everyone wanders off to take care of their own thing, Rhys slips into the control room, picking a drakefruit seed out of his teeth, and starts poking around in the computers.

    There’s not much information, about anything, even less about what he’s looking for, but after a few minutes of digging he finds the directory for Helios’ security footage. Just to make sure. Just to check. He’s not trying to hide anything, not really. He’d just like to know how many of his mistakes got preserved for posterity, that’s all.

    “Huh,” he mutters, scrolling through the archive.

    They’ve all been erased. Hacked into and erased, actually. He leans closer to the screen, frowning, trying to decide why he almost recognises the code, why it feels—

    “Hey, bro,” Vaughn says, sounding tired as he drops into a chair next to Rhys. “You all settled in?”

    Summary

    “You're not okay.”

    Gansey doesn’t jump, doesn’t even twitch. He’s almost used to Noah’s sudden appearances by now, the way he’s just so abruptly there in the corner of an eye or the shine of a car door or the middle of a sentence. One day he’d imagined how it would feel to be greeted with an awful clash of jarred nerves every time you spoke or showed your face - to the only people who can see you, even, the ones who mean the most to you - and he’d decided to train himself out of it. Noah deserves at least that much.

    Summary

    There’s no way out.

    There’s been no way out so many times, so many close calls where they’ve sprinted to the edge and then staggered back from it, but this... Stiles can’t feel it. Can’t feel that last paper-thin bit of hope that somehow they’ll get through it okay. The last time, when he’d been on the outside of the wall screaming Scott’s name and knowing, just knowing he was too late, sliding to the floor with that screaming quiet crushing him, suddenly no point to anything, not fighting or staying on his feet or taking his next breath.

    At least they’re together this time.

    [Written for prompt: Stiles confesses his feelings to Scott when he thinks they're about to die, but has to deal with the consequences when they don't ]

    Summary

    Stiles waits until Scott’s focused on the game, eyes narrowed and his tongue poking at the corner of his mouth, fingers tapping at the controller, before he says, “So I think we should kiss.”

    Summary

    It doesn’t matter how Scott asks, Stiles always says he’s fine.

    Scott’s not sure who’s supposed to believe it, or if Stiles just says it because it’s what he thinks he’s supposed to say. They do this now. They break and bleed and fall to bits, but so long as they say they’re okay then none of it’s really happening. It’s a nice idea. Just stick your fingers in your ears and hum really loud.

    The problem is that it’s not working, and Scott’s terrible at pretending it is.

    Summary

    Turns out getting onto the base is the easy part.

    All Sam has to do is use his ID to get through a non-civilian gate, smile all innocent and lie through his teeth to the guard about appointments with officers and VA business at the outpatient clinic. Oh, and pretend for all he’s worth that he doesn’t have a national icon and a master assassin stowed away in his car like a couple sets of golf clubs.
