    Summary

    Enjolras swallowed. "I didn't know he had tattoos on his back."

    "Yeah," said Joly, shrugging. "I mean, he lives with me and before about noon, he's allergic to shirts—"

    "Why—" said Enjolras weakly.

    "I always figured he had a bad shirt experience," Joly offered. "Shirts killed his family, or his first dog got hit by a truck full of shirts."

    Enjolras shook his head. His face was a little flushed.

    "Ooh, are you experiencing symptoms?" said Joly, brightening. "What's your pulse doing? Are you breathing normally? How do your glands feel?"

     

    Inspired in part by tumblr user feferi's post here, specifically: "i am in love with the idea that enjolras is so baffled by his own emotions towards grantaire that he legitimately cannot tell if he has heartburn or stomach butterflies"

    Modern AU. Joly is a gentleman, a scholar, a med student—and, when need be, a matchmaker. And oh, the need is definitely being.

    Summary

    "Three shards of pottery, and a deep, thick shroud, are required on occasions such as these. To conceal the eyes, the mouth, the mirror." ⸻

    The brightest generation of the V.F.D. were born under decaying stars; the previous generation had made this organization noble, but the secret of that nobility was lost in translation. This generation of young volunteers have always had one foot out the door, but these coming years will make them question whether the organization was ever good to begin with, whether their friends and associates could ever have been trusted, and whether the desperation not to be alone or the desperation to serve "the better good" is greater.

    It may also teach them what resides at the bottom of a not-quite ocean, and how that great unknown shaped the organization we known today.

    (A complex pre-ASOUE look into V.F.D., some headcanons about events of the time period, and a mess of unhealthy relationships I do not condone or believe should be aspired to.)

    Summary

    "I live with Enjolras, and all I can tell you is that I've never seen him show passion towards anyone besides the full-page photo of Karl Marx in his 19th century philosophy textbook."
    Beside them, Combeferre lets out a loud groan and faceplants on the kitchen table, nearly upsetting his coffee mug. A flash of guilt passes over Courfeyrac's face. "I mean that...not in a weird way."
    "Stop talking," Combeferre says. "Please."

    Or, Combeferre is terrified of the future and everyone around him and hopelessly in love with his best friend and Grantaire is homeless and suddenly finds himself living in a commune where everyone is overly invested in organic gardening and something called Kombucha. No one ever said your 20s were easy.

    Summary

    A collection of things I've written with Ati and Leras for/based on the tumblr Cosmere RP set in Kharbranth University. Mostly self-indulgent fluff or hurt/comfort featuring this pairing, written either for fun or because someone asked me to.

    Rating might change chapter to chapter; I'll mark that and note any warnings for the chapter at the beginning of the chapter; I'm not sure how many chapters this will go, but each chapter is fairly well-contained. Most of these were written pre-Secret History, by the way, so there aren't any spoilers there. And it all takes place in an AU anyway.

    Summary

    The prequel to Twelve Hour Shift. Can be read first or as a standalone.

    Cassian Andor is an undercover cop working his way into the one of his city’s major gangs, the Imps. Bodhi Rook, Imp driver, has figured out his secret. But Bodhi’s not interested in ratting him out; Bodhi’s looking for a way out and sees his chance to trade secrets for freedom.

    But nothing is as easy as it seems. One complication—the whole city is in danger if Bodhi’s information is true. Another—Bodhi is flirtatious and inappropriate and attractive. Cassian just has to hold his professionalism together long enough to keep his informant safe, keep the city safe, and keep the Imps from destroying everything.

    Summary

    Stormlight healing works off of self-image, restoring a Radiant to their “rightful state.” Which means that Kaladin’s slave brands don’t heal because views them as part of himself.

    But that’s the thing. Kaladin’s never viewed himself as a slave, not entirely. He resisted the slave mentality, kept fighting, refused to bow to lighteyes. He’s been a bridgeman, a wretch, a soldier, a surgeon—but “slave” was never a label he accepted.

    There is another brand, though. Shash. Dangerous.

    Summary

    It hits Enjolras when he enters Librairie des Abbesses on National Barricade Day, still unaware of the fact that he's going to be treated with the most delicious tricolor cupcakes in the universe, that it might be the same bookshop Courfeyrac has been hyperventilating about.
    It's only after he starts spending so much time there that he falls asleep on the books and wakes up covered in the same warm green blanket every time, when he realizes that maybe the bookseller with the icy blue eyes might be capable of more things than just making excellent coffee.
