    Summary

    His eyes fell on the handle of the knife, still lying where he had dropped it. Half intact. Just enough to see the initials carved in the sloppy way of a child. Just enough to realize, somewhere deep behind the snarling in his chest, was a child who recognized them.

    All you do is run.

    So he ran, the legacy ripping free like skin torn from a too-fresh wound, losing its purchase even as he grew more afraid, because it was the act of a coward, to run. The desperate last act of a dying child who had once been called Ajax.

     

    Maybe it was shame.
    Maybe that was why he could never remember her face.

    the abyss needs an archon, and the abyss never forgets

    Summary

    Xiao is certain his life is a joke at this point. He's seen a lot of things in his life, but this takes the cake. Zhongli will be the death of him.

    In other words, Zhongli kidnapped Childe and now the Fatui think he's dead.

    At least Aether is there to suffer with him. Someone has to keep these idiots in line.

    chapter 1 and this is already the funniest fucking thing i’ve ever read. xiao is long suffering

    “Before they can continue shit-talking Zhongli, the man himself walks through the door, still holding Childe like a blushing bride. Except the bride is limp, unconscious, full of bruises, and- oh wow Xiao didn’t even notice the blood on his clothes before.”

    love cryptic aether. also i’m homophobic

    aether: yeah no he’s totally suspicious as hell lmao

    i love outsider pov and this fulfills that so well

    zhongli: ah oopsies forgot to notify the family before i faked my future (current) husband’s death

    childe’s realization that zhongli is, in fact, flirting was. this fic is so

    the fucking chopsticks

    “Xiao wants to retch and claw his eyes out. Where is Aether? Someone save him. This is too sappy. Zhongli even pats his shoulder for fucks sake.”

    writing a will with the guy who faked ur death is such a scenario

    xiao and childe having a bonding moment over their emotional repression and then xiao throwing him out a window is so excellent you don’t even know. this is ideal this is perfect

    seriously is this dude ok

    Why Are You Gay

    THEY SWAPPED EARRINGS???.?.?..?.

    tsaritsa: lmao bitch u really thought u could make us think u died? really?

    the “they didn’t have to fake his death” ending was the funniest possible outcome gg. AND THEIR FIGHT?.!!?.?!..?.????.,,..,.?.?.?.... what the hell. incredible. still homophobic

    Summary

    “Daddy says I’m selfish. Do you think I’m selfish, baby?”

    Kenma shook his head faster than he ever had before, wide eyes glued to his brand new console.

    “That’s good,” his mother sighed, brushing aside his hair and kissing him on the forehead. She then leaned in close to whisper to him, “Everything’s okay now. Daddy made me leave for longer than usual this time, but I promise I’m not letting him separate us anymore.”

    Kenma grew up quietly, with conditions attached to his love and worth, and quickly had to adapt to life with a pathological narcissist for a mother.

    (updated bookmark as i read)

    “while Kenma had always been a picky eater, it was a lot easier to help expand his palate when he was away from home.” how did this one detail make me tear up a little like my parents aren’t exactly the same genre of shitty but i do relate to a lot of this

    “ He had the option to keep to himself and hide away where no one would be around to pressure him at mealtimes or look at him strangely for eating a handful of crackers and calling that lunch.” nooo wtf wtf. stop calling be out

    damn i wish my tech dad was as cool as kenma’s

    my shitty home life is wayyy less intense but man. man i feel this. like this fic gets it man. here’s to both me n kenma hopefully getting out of there eventually lmao

    this is so well written fr i love the bokuakakuroken support network so so much. op i owe u my life

    aaahh what a ride :’) very good

    Summary

    “Iwa-chan! Our roles have very significant weight! It’s important that we, as the Number One and Number Twenty-Eight Most Popular Boys in School, don’t disappoint our fellow peers by putting forth a half-assed production!”

    “I still don’t understand why you’re so gung-ho about this. You can’t even sing and you got cast as the character with the second-most songs.”

    “So? And you can’t act, so we have a lot to teach each other.”

    “You can’t act either!!”


    Oikawa accidentally on purpose sabotages Iwaizumi's audition for the school musical and lands himself a position much more formidable than stagehand.

    Nagawa didn’t say anything, but pulled a pamphlet out from a desk drawer and handed it to Tooru. It had an illustration of a blushing boy on the front. “What’s Happening To My Body?: Answers To Tricky Questions About Pubescence And The Teenage Male.”

    “A little tip, Oikawa-kun,” Nagawa said, hardly capable of holding back a smirk. “Next time your crush sings you a song, remember to breathe.”

    mattsun’s reaction to oikawa skipping practice being “did someone die” i

    major second hand embarrassment on oikawa’s behalf but this fic is delightful

    i’m homophobic

    He remembered the local newspaper asking him questions after he won the Best Setter award in middle school. “That’s quite an accomplishment. How are you going to use your skills going forward?” “Well, Natsuki-san, I plan on honing my skills by practicing with my neighbor, my best friend, my teammate, my ace, the love of my life, the stars in my sky, my future husband, the father of my children, Iwaizumi Hajime.”

    the planetarium from chapter 1... i’m so

    also for good is my favorite wicked song. so.

    this is such a feel good story i’m here for it 👍👍👍👍
