    Summary

    “Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look upon them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death."

    - Sun Tzu, The Art of War

    (My take on the beginnings of the Antarctic Empire, and the family that grew alongside it.)

    Summary

    “I understand. You heard the place you loved was in trouble, so you came back, but I don’t—I just—why didn’t you take me?” Here it was, at last. Catharsis, or something close to it. “I would have hunted them down with you, Philza, the people who did that to your town. I would have given you your vengeance on a silver platter. I would have given you the world.”

    Philza didn’t look guilty. He just looked tired. “I didn’t hunt them down, though.”

    //

    Or, that fic where Techno and Phil are old immortals, and Tommy and Wilbur are decidedly... not.

    Summary

    “Great, you’re all set. Room 209.”

    Keith handed him the credit card, along with two keycards for the room. Their fingers brushed and Keith snatched his hand back.

    “Awesome. Thanks … ” Lance’s eyes flicked down. “Keith.”

    Keith almost choked before he remembered he was wearing a name tag. “I … you’re welcome. Enjoy your stay.”

     

    or, Keith is working at a small beachside hotel for the summer. And Lance, who is staying at the hotel, keeps coming up with excuses to go to the front desk to talk to Keith.

    Summary

    There are moments in every person’s life that shake the very core of their existence until they are left with only the crumbling foundations of a once immovable truth.

    Like so many things seemed to, it started – and ended – with Lance. For Keith, discerning exactly where it started was like discerning where the desert sands become the burning skies. The moments blending together into a single frame of umber and burnt sienna that carries on forever.
