    Summary

    Karolina doesn’t think Nico deserves all the ragging she’s getting for her heavily gothic look and dark, threatening eyeliner.

    If they had wanted Nico to lighten up, spread some color, Karolina was more than happy to share.

    After all, it did come out through her fingertips.

    Summary

    Schooling her features, Emori turns. “Can I help you?”

    If he’s taken aback by the tattoo on her face or the shape of her deformed left hand, he doesn’t show it. Emori will give him credit for not even flinching.

    “I actually wanted to introduce myself.” He extends a hand to her. Behind him, Raven and Harper stop their work to stare, and Bellamy closes his book and sits up a little straighter in the armchair. “I’m Murphy.” He seems to catch himself. “John Murphy. I’m opening the bakery down the street.”

    Summary

    "Every morning the maple leaves.
    Every morning another chapter where the hero shifts
    from one foot to the other. Every morning the same big
    and little words all spelling out desire, all spelling out:
    You will be alone always and then you will die."

    After leaving an abusive relationship, Murphy moves into his best friend's house. He's fine, really. Their new roommate comes with more than enough baggage of her own.

    (A Memori college AU)

    Summary

    “Get home safe,” he says awkwardly, like an afterthought.

    You don’t know what else to say but, “You too.” It sounds too polite leaving your mouth.

    He walks away. You see him board the bus outside. When it pulls away, you swear his eyes meet yours from the window.

    You look at the take-out coffee cup he left on the windowsill. When you pick it up, it’s empty. John is written on it in a barista's messy scrawl.

    Something in you smiles.
