    Summary

    Once, Ty Lee asks her what it’s like to be in love.

    From her lips, the words float like pink smoke and Mai lowers her book just to watch the sun set around her shoulders. “What? I don’t know.”

    “But,” Ty Lee frowns, dropping from her handstand in one long movement, like water flowing in a river, and sits cross-legged with her serious face on. It’s very rare to see her like this, all wide-eyed and furrowed brow, head tilted just a bit to the side as if she’s listening to a song only she knows. “What about Zuko?”

    Mai frowns. What about Zuko? Unnamed dread rises in the pit of her stomach, unnervingly familiar, and she pushes it back into a locked chest just below her sternum, closing the lid tightly to choke the fire. Everyone has a crush on Zuko, she could say, because it’s true, Zuko’s the crown prince and he’s sort of sweet even if he’s a little weird, so Mai figures if she were to like anyone, it would be him, she would like it to be him.

    Instead, she glares. “We’re twelve, we’re not in love.”

    or, after the war, Mai stops an assassination plot, makes friends, and comes to terms with her own sexuality. Not necessarily in that order, though.

    Summary

    Helen is still studying her, and for some reason, this moment of hesitation strikes Vanya as strangely defining– like a die is being tossed up in the air and reality is shattering in six. “What’s your name again?”

    “Vanya."

    “Okay, Vanya,” she says and the timeline settles around them in their one-sixth of the lot. Vanya shivers as if feeling the ripples. “Let me see it.”

    “What?” Vanya blinks uncomprehending, several copies of her do the same in the mirrors.

    “Play it for me,” Helen spells it out, sounding irritated for having to do so. Her eyebrow twitches. “Go on, I don’t have all day.”

    *

    or, Vanya accidentally gets a grumpy private tutor and it changes everything.

    Summary

    Andy sees her face and feels the air leave her lungs in one sharp, painful breath as she jerks her finger away from the trigger. 

    “Quynh,” she gasps without sound, she doesn’t have enough breath left for sound.

    /or/

    Andy walks into their safe house and finds someone waiting for her.
