    Summary

    For as long as he can remember, Boya has been waiting. He doesn’t know what for, doesn’t understand it, but he grew up with an itch beneath his skin, pulling on his heart and mind for years. His mother used to tell him stories when he was very small, tales full of divine beasts and blessed ones honoured to serve them. She said the heavens protected them; these servants that mother claimed were their ancestors.

    Boya learnt the hard way that the heavens did not protect his family.

    Joining the Temple as an orphan, another victim of the evil of demons and the mercurialness of the heavens, had been the only thing a nine-year-old Boya could have done... for years, Boya was content.

    Content to be a protector of those who were not protected by the heavens.

    It is only, looking into the eyes of a Master atop a bridge in the dead of night, that Boya has some inkling of what he has been waiting for, all these years.

    The itch beneath Boya's skin burns.

    Summary

    Yes, this time Len will admit his plan had been really stupid.

    (Prompt: Coldwave AU, where Len was burgling STAR Labs when the accelerator blew up - and thus he ended up merged with Stein as Firestorm.)

    Summary

    Caitlin and Ronnie shake hands, all the while smiling at each other with a peculiar softness and Wells gets the very clear sense that something unexpected is transpiring in front of him, something he hasn't accounted for.
