    Summary

    "The prospect of enduring the summer without most of her friend group hit Jade unexpectedly. Despite the annoying bickering, creative tensions, and constant disagreements, Jade had grown used to having these people in her life, to seeing them every day, to -- ugh -- caring about what’s happening with them. They were her friends and now they were gone and suddenly Jade had to grapple with the prospect of an entire summer in the sole company of Tori Fucking Vega."

    Jade and Tori find themselves connecting the summer after they graduate high school, but it's just never that easy with the two of them, is it? Or in the words of Taylor Swift: Hell was the journey, but it brought me heaven.

    Summary

    Jamie doesn’t hear the end of it for days.

    If it’s not about how friendly Miss Clayton is––how warm she is, how she’d wrapped Flora in the most wonderful hug on the first day, how big she smiles when Flora or her classmates answer a question right, make her laugh, or really seems to do anything at all––it’s about cool she is, how American, and that? That is something Jamie simply cannot abide.

    “I remember when you used to call me cool,” Jamie sighs wistfully, sliding a bowl of ramen in front of Flora before sinking into her seat across from her. “Not some…” She waves a hand, vaguely, crinkling her nose, “American.”

     

    or: as long as it's mattered to jamie, it's always been her and flora. always, that is, until dani clayton, flora's year four teacher.

    Summary

    “Everyone on this show has an agenda, Kara.”

    She regarded the blonde with a quirked eyebrow and asked, “What’s yours?”

    “I- I- I um-” Kara brought her right hand up to the bridge of her nose, froze when she found nothing there, then awkwardly dropped her hand to her side. “To… find… love?”

    “Right. Love. You’re here to find it, I’m here to help you.” Lena paused. “Kind of.”

    “Well, that sounds ominous.”

    Summary

    Above them it is eerily silent; the absence of rainfall noticeable to them both though neither say anything. Seulgi just holds Joohyun closer, willing any remaining space between them to disappear.

    She wonders if, even pressed tightly together like this, Joohyun still thinks Seulgi's far away.

    or

    Caught in a storm she can't escape, it's fortunate that Seulgi has someone like Joohyun to shield her from the rain

    Summary

    Clarke is constantly annoyed by Lexa Woods, the know-it-all who is always waving her hand in the air and correcting professors. Lexa is unimpressed with Clarke. They don't like each other but somehow end up spending time together, and things change, progress, evolve. They'll never be more than what they are because Lexa wants butterflies and Clarke doesn't give her them. Clexa without instant attraction and unfathomable lust, with expectation versus reality. A different kind of love story.
