    Summary

    Harry dares to look down at the petal. It looks like someone tore apart his heart and splatted the blood across the pristine white bedsheets of Madam Pomfrey's. It looks like his childhood of scraped knees of split life. Of a feeling like a ghost afraid of the light anytime Aunt Petunia spoke his name. Of abuse. This petal of striped carnation looks like eyes of cognac in blood belonging to a pale man.

    Summary

    Even their names are nothing of significance. Philza was whispered to be the Angel of Death by nations and books and people far away. Technoblade was known as The Blood God and The Blade by everyone he crossed.

    Wilbur and Tommy, were just, Wilbur and Tommy.

    Or, a Family gets everything they deserve.

    Summary

    He doesn't even have a name of significance. Philza was uttered to be the Angel of Death in books and lands, and Technoblade was known as The Blood God and The Blade by everyone he had crossed.

    Tommy and Wilbur are painfully simple. Maybe itʼs worthless to think about now. What's done is done.

    (The world deteriorates between his eyes, the core of earth rising and falling and discourse becoming the sky as he reasons with Gods.)

    Or, The family do not get their happy ending, because they don't deserve it.

    Summary

    Oh Icarus, how foolish are you to be in love with the sun even as he sets your wings ablaze like flash paper? The thought of Dabi should set his heart racing at the thought of what he’s been ordered to do, but Hawks has the self preservation instincts of a deer, frozen in the headlights of his doom. The thought of Dabi, the knowledge that he’s just a few feet away, makes Hawks’s fists unclench just a little.

    Summary

    The natural tilt of his head as he surrenders to the feeling of lips that is felt along the side of his neck, traveling downwards at an achingly slow pace, adds to the knot of heat that gathers within him.

    Until Wonwoo met the detail-loving, passionate photographer, until his face felt as if it were on fire with every casual compliment or cheeky remark, until differing views were shared under the moonlight about life, opening his eyes to a world beyond the chains of his father, until his first kiss was gently taken after a futile attempt at making dinner one night, until Mingyu made love to him, held him and spoke those three words in his ear with every ounce of affection laid out in the open, happiness seemed like something that Wonwoo didn’t deserve and couldn’t obtain… a far off dream.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    a series of interconnected one-shots held together loosely by an overarching narrative of "the hunter's perspective." it will be antonio centric though I will try to give everyone their chance to shine. if you've read my other long-form series "to reckon" it'll have a p similar format.

    Summary

    Draco enjoys chess. When you play it, and get good at it, and begin to plot ahead, ignoring the urge to simply steal the first piece but rather plot for the bigger narrative, it feels like sex. Gratifying, satisfying and oh so sweet.

    Summary

    You wouldn’t strike him as a fool unless you saw him that morning, and you wouldn’t mark him as a romantic unless you heard him, heard his breathing: for the papers had been read; for the coffee had been drunk; for his hair was a mess while his partner was undone. It bore repeating with every kiss Tom had left him along with this — as he caught the hitches of Harry’s breaths and chased the sparks from those lips — that he yearned for nothing, but the pleasures of losing himself within him. And that if every morning if he could have this, he wouldn’t mind playing innocent.
