    Summary

    Andrew Minyard doesn’t believe soulmates exist.

    Or rather, he doesn’t believe his soulmate exists. The vibrant stripe of auburn tucked between the scars on his wrist like a secret is real enough, true. He’s stared at it enough times over the years to be certain of that.

    But the person it connects him to? Impossible. A hallucination. A pipe dream.

    Summary

    And to make matter’s worst, which is just her luck, really, no surprises there, a car turns the corner, engine roaring, and slows down as it nears the school. Not any car either, no. Billy Hargrove’s blue Camaro is a one of a kind car here in Hawkins, and right now, it’s screeching to a halt.

     

    Great. That’s just– great. The town’s douchebag, just what she needed.

     

    He rolls down the window, lays on his charm, giving her the kind of grin that makes the girls swoon in the halls. Too bad for him, really, this kinda shit isn’t gonna work on Robin. “Hey there, beautiful. You wouldn’t happen to have seen my sister, would you?”

     

    Robin frowns, gives him an unimpressed look. Not really what she had been expecting, but better than being harassed. “Do I look like I know who your sister is?”

    *

    or, Robin has car trouble and somehow, that changes everything.

    Summary

    [Sokka is five when the first mark appears. 

    It writes itself in a deep red like a wound, as if someone had carved the word “nonbender” in a messy font across the knuckles of his left hand, as if it was handwritten with a knife.

    When he asks his mother, as she applies salve on Sokka’s knuckles, she sighs deeply and says nothing for a few moments. 

    “Sometimes, spirits don’t make much sense.”

    Sokka has yet to turn thirteen when he wakes up screaming in pain, about ten soulmarks all over each other between his left shoulder and his ear, red and vivid like burning flesh. Among the few words that are somehow possible to read out of the disastrous scribbling, “disrespectful” and “coward” and “burned” and “sorry sorry sorry” are the ones that stand out the most to Sokka. He thinks, at the tender age of twelve, whoever did this to his soulmate will be sorry too, one day.

    A month after Hakoda leaves him with the job of the protector at the age of thirteen, Sokka realizes, with a bitter taste in his mouth, that he’s got more soulmarks than his entire village combined.]

    Or, to have a soulmark is to carry the vilest things that your soulmate believes about themselves on your skin.

    Summary

    This place will never, ever, get better and things will never be alright.

    But — but. Andrew hates himself for the but. The last time he had anything aside from his own spine to hold himself up, Andrew had ran his body raggedy trying to keep it. He doesn’t know at which point he became a creature of habit; he doesn’t know why he’d put himself through this again. He doesn’t know why he’d handle Neil the knife and tell him just where to cut, but he did and he has and he will continue to do so until it kills him or Andrew kills it first.

    Alternatively: The Foxes in hindsight, through Andrew's perspective.

    Summary

    Between seven adults, even ones as severely damaged as they are, there's got to be at least enough common sense to mimic one semi-functional, competent human. Post-season one, Klaus and his siblings travel around in their own pasts, sort out some of their shit, and relive the week of the apocalypse one last time.

    This time, they get it right.
