    Summary

    Yang's untouchable; Blake's anything but. The first time they meet can't be the first at all, not with Yang lighting up every billboard on the Sunset Strip and Blake's voice crooning through the radio regardless of the station, not when every motion of Yang's is achingly familiar and every turn of Blake's mouth leads like a staircase. It's Hollywood, and Yang's spent years learning how to get exactly what wants her - Blake's spent years running from it.

    If I could, Blake says, I'd kiss you right now.

    If I could, Yang says, I'd let you.

    Summary

    It starts at a party on a Friday night, as things in college ordinarily do. She's drunk with a loose grip around a series of bad habits. One of them takes her to bed, and then does it again, and again, and again. They've all seen the movies. Yang should've interpreted them as warning signs.

    I don't want to talk about love, Blake says.

    Well, Yang answers, I don't want to feel it.

    Summary

    "When Blake gets her first serious boyfriend Sun gets sympathetic pats on the shoulder and promises she'll come around eventually. He hopes so, but not for the reasons people think."

    Blake is is soulmate, there's no doubt about that in Sun's mind, and if you ask Blake she'll give you the exact same answer. But the idea of kissing her, of dating her, leaves him fidgety and uncomfortable, like sitting in front of a mirror and watching yourself make out with your hand. Or something. Blake's the wordsmith out of the two of them, he'll ask her for a better analogy at some point. That's why they're soulmates after all; they make each other the best, happiest versions of themselves. Sun just wishes everybody didn't think that meant they had to be in love.

    Summary

    She’s staring at Blake like she’s giving up, like she loves her, like she’s handing her that sky. Take this, she’s saying, this clap of thunder, this wildfire waiting to start. Take this like it’s my heart.

    Blake runs away, and only after realizes what she's been running to. I've seen enough destruction, Yang says. Sometimes it's nice just to watch the flowers bloom.
