    Summary

    Richie had a bad temper. That was a fact known by his friends and had become simply another characteristic.
    But the way odd numbers left him, the way they made him squirm in bed at three in the morning and scratch his neck tirelessly during math, that was scary.
    Still, what was even scarier to him was trying to relate the strange and spikey odd numbers to the familiar and kind Eddie K.

    Summary

    "So, anyone's caught your eye?"

    Rey snorts.

    Looks down at the cheery shasta daisies in bloom, white-and-yellow wrapped in a small bundle before her locker door. No note.

    Rose bumps her arm and picks up the flowers. "Well, whoever they are—they must be up your alley."

     

    Meaning:

    1) preferably taller than her 5'7 height
    2) knows not to trample on any grass or flowers
    3) is most definitely NOT her adopted sister's childhood crush and self-proclaimed soulmate finally back from a long absence, and goes by the name of Ben Solo

    Summary

    For the prompts:
    "1990s New York AU. Ben rejects his wealthy, reputable family (bonus points for !lawyer Leia) and decides to fend for himself. He ends up getting involved with an underground boxing community. One day, bloodied and bruised after a fight, he goes for a drink to the local bar he frequents. To his surprise, he finds a young, fresh-faced girl behind the bar instead of the usual bartender."

    And:
    "We have not touched the stars,
    nor are we forgiven, which brings us back
    to the hero’s shoulders and the gentleness that comes,
    not from the absence of violence, but despite the abundance of it."
    Richard Siken - "Snow and Dirty Rain."

    Summary

    [“There’s this thing that you do,” says Alec, exasperated. “This power you have that makes you look indestructible.”

    “You know that’s not true,” says Magnus, his breath warm against Alec’s chin.

    “I do,” replies Alec, “But even then … there are times when I’m not so sure.”]

    --

    1992, New York, a city hanging on to politically-tinged Cold War feelings. Alec Lightwood is a Corporate - a superhero for hire - jostling with a secret identity, holding on to a sense of a normal life, and the fact vigilantes keep turning up murdered in the gutters with no explanation.

    Things can only get worse when Magnus - an investigative journalist - starts peeling back Alec’s carefully-crafted mask … and then there’s the mysterious vigilante with the power to move things with his mind who keeps turning up wherever Alec goes - Alec just can’t cut a break.

    A neonoir slow-burn superheroes AU about identity, truth, and falling in love without knowing someone’s real name (ft. everyone has superpowers because I couldn’t help myself).
