    Summary

    “I guess one of us is messed up,” he said, “and it’s part of our hallucination that the other is, too.” He paused. “Seems appropriately hellish that my mind sticks me with you.”

    She pursed her lips. “Likewise.”

    AU. Clarke is trapped in a stupid time loop, and guess who's trapped with her?

    Summary

    Perhaps because of the late hour, or the heat limiting most duties to half day shifts, the hammam is surprisingly empty when they reach it, their voices going hushed in the echoing room. Clarke realizes as she glances at Bellamy that they’ve never been entirely alone here together. They’ve rinsed off here together before, but that’s easier when they’re surrounded by their friends: Bellamy distracted by Brian snapping a towel at him and Jasper splashing everyone in cold water. Clarke tends to sit with Raven, stretching their legs out on the warmed metal after they’ve scrubbed down and enjoying the steam and hubbub of Arkadians around them.

    Bellamy falters as he seems to realize the intimacy of it, the quiet, half lit room that smells of clean, light soap and the soft drip of water into wooden and metal buckets alike, the lap of it in the troughs.

    Summary

    “Dammit, Clarke!” he explodes at her, and now he stops in his tracks,but Clarke tugs on his arm and he falls back into step with a pained groan. “We were at peace with these people.”

    He says this as if it would have lasted forever, had Clarke let him die. But both he and Clarke know better. Peace is not a stable state of things; it is fragile. It’s always only a matter of time. They both have learned this. But all she says is, “And taking you was an act of war. They’ve been playing at peace but really they’ve been looking for a weak point to strike at.”

    He fixes her with a look. “And did they find one?”

    His words hang in the air with a special significance. She knows what he’s really asking.

    Summary

    He leans into it, tilting his body towards her where she still stands between his legs, and they’re so, so close, breathing in each other’s air before his eyes flick up to meet her gaze and then—

    Abby opens the door and steps out of the supply closet. “Clarke.”

    or, 3 times Bellamy gets hurt and one time he isn't.
