    Summary

    Jon sighs. “Martin, look, I’m not… I’m not poking fun, or god forbid angry at you. I just… Going into… whatever I’m about to go into, not knowing if I’ll make it back, I just… After so long scorning you, distrusting you, and you still caring? I just worry that I somehow managed to… fool you.”

    Martin scoffs. “You haven’t fooled me, Jon. Not even a little bit. That’s exactly the thing.” He exhales. “I guess… I’ve been able to spot your attempts to fool everyone with the ‘disinterested academic’ schtick and it just… didn’t work on me. Through all the tired bullshit I saw… I saw you.”

    The night before Jon leaves for The Unknowing, Martin stops by his office for a few last words of encouragement. One more cup of tea. But their interaction unfolds into something far, far different.

    Summary

    The books dig into his chair, and he leans his head back, eyes fluttering closed. When he breathes, it smells like the crisp air of the forest, and he thinks he should leave, or at the very least worry that this is not what he thinks, that maybe it’s the coffin, pushing back -

    Instead he licks his lips and says: “Martin?”

    There’s no answer, but the bookcase moves again, and for a few seconds he is utterly trapped, the desk digging into his stomach; it’s painful, it’s heavy, and he loses his breath - but these days, it’s as close as he gets to an embrace.

    Summary

    Fences and borders are put into place for a reason; to keep something in, and to keep something out.
    For the longest time, Logan Stein has been dealing with the things that try to come over to his side of the fence. It's his duty, so to speak. So when not one - but two things - come climbing through the fence, he's more than prepared to remove them. Or so he thinks.
    When this task proves too monumental for even him to compete, he's left between a rock and a hard place.
    To live or not to live? That is the question.

    Summary

    After an odd incident as Stevonnie, Connie finds herself added as a second user to Steven's gem - able to share his magic, and deeply tied to him. They both struggle with their new romantic relationship, their new powers, and what it means to be independent.
    ---------
    With a frustrated growl Connie ripped off her shirt and pants and went for her pajamas, and caught a glimpse of herself in the mirror.
    Pink.
    Wide-eyed, her fingers traced across the skin of her belly, but the sensitive tips of her fingers could find no oddness or lumps. The pink diamond emblazoned there seemed to be as much a part of her skin as any beauty mark. There was no glow. There was no strange feeling. It was as odd as finding a new freckle, if a freckle was magic. If a freckle had implications.
