    Why Indigo?

    Indigo is a colour of Intuition, Sentiment and Perception, opening the Hidden Eye toward a world unknown which shall be shared by the holder with those surrounding them. It seems that, although it can foresee the Future, discover the Past and sense the Present, this auric colour may inflict a Truth, Justice and Freedom seeking within the person affected by it - thus, the Art withdrawn from it can reflect not only upon the Universe, but also on the one being it.
    We could say, eventually, that Indigo is both Light and Dark; it is the Concrete, the Abstract, the Matter and the Dream, the cooling Spirit-Mind-Fire that has the world in its palms, but never dares to close them.

    Summary

    desiderium - an ardent desire or longing especially : a feeling of loss or grief for something lost.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    “You see, the king is the most powerful person on the board. He rarely moves, but when he does, it comes with great danger. Still, his choices lead the group to victory, that's why he's the most important piece.”

    Dream smiles at him, soft and shy, “But even in the end, you basically lose the game without the queen.”

    He doesn’t need to know the innuendos, he doesn’t need to know all the double layered meaning to it. George knows Dream too well, his heart too open, he says the words before they even leave his mouth.

    “So, you’re the queen now?” George says, fiddling with the king in his hand.

    “As long as you’re the king, of course.” Dream chides, looking down at the board,

    “Does that mean you protect me now?” George smiles, impish and coy. He spins the piece in his hand.

    Dream looks back up. “For as long as you’re King. I’ll be your Queen for as long as you want me to be.”

    Summary

    Harmony Ametsenya is too young to face the cruelties of the city. At ten years old, she shouldn’t be hungry, she shouldn’t be cold, she shouldn’t be worried about where her next meal is coming from. But it doesn’t change the fact that she is.

    Fourteen-year-old Msitu Ametsenya shouldn’t be either. But it doesn’t change the fact that she will keep Harmony safe at all costs. At all costs. No matter what.

    Their lives are full of fear and pain work. Because in this city, nobody cares about two impoverished orphan children trying to stay alive. Nobody cares about the impoverished at all.

    The city is grey, made of metal and glass and concrete. The water is grey, full of pollution. The sky is grey, full of smog.

    As Christmas comes around the corner, the first Christmas since their parents died, how will Msitu make it a time of joy and hope?

    Because after all, in a world run by greed and apathy, hope is everything.

    Summary

    He often hears people wonder about his work, scratch and scrunch up their noses, tilt their heads in dazzled hesitation as they contemplate the reality of it. 16 hours in a hot, cramped room, having to keep calm under the constant barrage of new order tickets and mishaps-in-waiting; on paper, the prospect is bound to make people uncomfortable. For Lan Wangji, however, the work is nothing short of meditative.

    ---

    Lan Wangji is the youngest sous-chef Gusu’s ever had. He’s revered, skilled, and ready to make the family restaurant the most sought-after spot in Beijing. Deep down, however, he is lost and wavering. When he runs into a familiar face, in the middle of a bustling market, his carefully crafted trajectory takes a swerve.

    Or, an AU where most of the characters are chefs, Lan Zhan is losing his conviction in the craft, and Wei Ying resurfaces from a 3-year disappearance, just in time.

    Summary

    He wishes he could take these words back, unspoken as they were. Erase all and any trace of them before they even started forming in his head.

    It's funny. Itadori didn’t even live next door for all that long. Barely three weeks and a half, if even that. And yet, now that he’s not there anymore, it’s like the world has shifted on its axis, minutely and almost imperceptibly so, but still enough to throw Fushiguro off balance.

    Summary

    Todoroki Shouto has memories that he didn't make on his own, motor skills that his brain doesn't know how to parse, and a love of science and mathematics and physics that means he broke down his Quirk into its most intricate, universe-bending components at the age of seven.

    In one universe, he wants to become a hero. In this one, even though he doesn't want to, he might have to.

     

    (Featuring: a rapidly developing Shoutosquad, Quirk science, headcanons of all flavors, healthy and supportive sibling and sibling-like relationships, and Dadzawa.)
