    Summary

    Marc originally sets up the phone line to help keep tabs on Steven whenever he was too tired to crawl his way into consciousness and pay attention--but he can only listen to Steven beg for his Mum to talk back for so long until he has to do something about it. A one-shot about how Marc takes care of Steven by writing postcards pretending to be someone they both miss.

    OR: Marc Spector takes "reparenting yourself" literally.

    Summary

    Each flicker of existence only happening every other week, every other month. Sometimes occurring day after day, while in others six months would pass in the second it took to breath. He didn’t even have a name, then, just the seconds of being. It took forever to think, to do more then just breath, to finally have a name.

    Jake Lockley, an identity of his own choosing.

    Summary

    There is a moment where Jake Lockley reconsiders. Until he doesn't.

    "I sense hesitation in you. It is... unfamiliar to me."

    "Yeah well, I'm just full of surprises, aren't I?" He pulls a pack of cigarettes from the breast pocket of his jacket, takes one out and holds it between his fingers. Considers it for a moment, the bright white between two pillars of black. "Thought that was the point."

    Summary

    Layla sees Jake. Then she sees him.
    -
    "What's your name?"

    His eyes finally find hers in the mirror, his brow raised. The brown of his irises are black in the low light. "Getting personal, now, are we?"

    She tightens her jaw at that, but she doesn't snap back at him like she wants to. She can't afford to be confrontational. At least not recklessly so.

    "Lots of cab drivers get personal," she offers with a shrug, sitting back against her seat.

    "Not this one."

    Summary

    Today wasn’t supposed to go like this. They knew this would be hard, they all did, but he and Steven had apparently hammered everything out over the course of several days. There had been discussions and agreements and arguments. The only thing lacking was notarized signatures, Marc had joked, and in retrospect, Layla realized how incredibly naive she’d been to assume that Marc could crack jokes about a topic as serious as this one was a positive step. But of course, nothing was ever that easy.

    Maybe he and Steven should have made their agreement legally binding, though how anyone could ever enforce that, she would never know.

    Summary

    David didn’t always bring Syd with him into the white room. It felt incredibly rare to have a moment to himself with nothing to do, and while he did prefer to spend a lot of his time with Sydney, he also treasured these moments alone. David was able to think clearly for the first time in his life. No one else's thoughts hammering on his head, no drugs blurring his senses. Just simple peace and quiet.

    David was not very sure what to do.

    Summary

    The crew had picked him out of the harbor at the mouth of the river. They had thought he was dead. He was a curious specimen. He had glasses of very fine make and half a tattered outfit, but he had very expensive looking boots, were they not completely waterlogged. He was covered in wounds that looked very deliberate. On the deck, it was clear that he was a boy, who had been badly treated, and not a man, despite the white hair.

    Summary

    Once more, with feeling.

     

    Or, the world has ended, and yet it keeps turning. This time around, David doesn't know it, but he's determined to be happy. It's never as simple as it sounds, especially not for mutants.

    Amahl Farouk gets not what he deserves (to have the living daylights beaten out of him); not what he wants (David, David David David--); but what he needs.

    Summary

    Sometimes Clark thinks back to what Syd had told him when he had led the attack on Summerland on that one fateful day. What she had said when she had tried to convince him to switch sides right off the bat -

    "Maybe i'm wrong, but I think you like David. I think you feel something for him."

    If only she had known how deep that particular 'something' ran.

    Prompt: David/Clark. Either as enemies or frenemies. Options include: Clark taking advantage of David when David is first captured by Division 3. Post S1 (no orb AU) hate sex. (You burned off half my face but I want you anyway). S2 or beyond captor/fugitive situation. Could be a character piece or a PWP.)

    “If you put on any more sunscreen, I think you’ll slip and then contaminate these pristine waters,” Mita says critically, watching Lemtov slather himself with what, by her count, seemed to be the fifth layer of sunscreen.

    Lemtov raises an eyebrow at her, “I just knew this was a dastardly scheme of yours. You’ll trick me into not putting on enough sunscreen. I’ll get sunburned, develop skin cancer, then die, and then you’ll finally be the hottest Eurovision contestant.”

    This is just ridiculous, Sigrit thinks. They are doing a couples therapy because they disagreed on the staging of a duet, and they are not a couple at all, and he is a repressed Russian billionaire who drags her around the world because it is apparently easier than stop lying to himself.

    - But you still want it to work, - calmly states Mita. - Otherwise you wouldn’t be there.

    ***
    Or, Lars doesn't make it to Eurovision finale. Sigrit stays with Lemtov and writes a new song for herself.

"A lot of Kerry’s memories were fuzzy, but she clung to the sound of Mama’s voice in her head, ran it on a loop over and over: no matter what happens, you’ll always have each other. So where was he now when she most needed him?"

    In the safety of his commune, David tries to keep his thoughts under control with varying levels of success. On a particularly bad day, one of his acolytes gives him a necklace of mala beads, saying it may help. A group meditation session follows because healing is easier as a family, right?

    An emotional little one-shot to show part of David's process to becoming who he was at the start of season three and his struggle to maintain mental clarity.
