  1. Summary

    “I hated him. I hated the way he excelled in death and brutality and domination. But more than that, I hated the way he was necessary, how I needed him to jar me into action… I hated the way I loved him when I inched up out of the terror and returned fire, seeing him soothing too, smiling the whole time, screaming, the whole rage and hate of these few acres, alive and spreading, in and through him.”

    The Yellow Birds, Kevin Powers

     

    Ocelot has to know that people are not truly sculptures-- he can carve and mold and cast and chisel, form with his hands or with tools, but the shape will always change. There is no point where you are ever exactly what he intended you to be, and you wonder if the people who made him appreciated it the way you do.

  2. Summary

    When Sasuke and Sakura marry, they do so to protect one another in a world that can't accept them for what they are. They will be safe, at least, even if they aren't happy. But love cannot be stopped any more than a flower can be kept from blooming, or its scent kept from taking to the air.

    SakuHina, NaruSasu - Lavender Marriage & Infidelity

    So please, hurry, leave me, I can't breathe
    Please don't say you love me
    胸がはち切れそうで
    One word from you and I would
    Jump off of this ledge I'm on, baby
    Tell me "don't," so I can crawl back in

    And I was so young when I behaved twenty five
    Yet now I find I've grown into a tall child
    And I don't wanna go home yet
    Let me walk to the top of the big night sky

            - Mitski, "First Love/Late Spring"

    Summary

    "Take off that shirt and then whatever else you feel comfortable with.”

    He obeyed, and Nina took a minute to revel in having this dangerous, headstrong creature at her command. Even as a lieutenant under Per Haskell he’d always been in charge of his own schemes; Nina doubted the former Dregs boss had ever ordered Kaz to do something he hadn’t planned to do anyway. And here he was, placing that control at her feet. She did not take the responsibility lightly.

    The last person he’d trusted with this hadn’t taken it seriously. As he turned away from her to shuck his slacks, Nina spotted the barest blush of the bruising that still lingered on Kaz’s back.

    Summary

    “You have been running from me all week,” he growls in your ear. With his neck so close to you, his scent darts up your nostrils, sweat and dirt. It shouldn’t be pleasing, but it is, because it is Ivar. “Like a deer. But I have caught you.”

    “What do you do with deer that you catch?” you ask him, somehow finding your voice buried deep beneath the frightening intensity racking through you.

    “Skin them,” he answers promptly. “Remove my arrows, skin them, gut them, clean them out. I go as deep inside of them as I wish, to take everything I need. Eventually, they will become my meal, a fur to keep me warm, a bone I may carve.”

    “You’re here for the devil story,” she says, just from looking at me again.
    “How could you tell?”
    “Everyone wants to know the devil story.”

    Summary

    Love Degree, at least, understands him. The swish of a uniform’s skirt, the desire to stare until you see panties… or not. The allure of thigh high stockings. The cramped quarters of the commuter rail, the soft press of another’s body. It just goes on like that.

    Summary

    You are a maidservant in a Saxon castle overrun by Vikings. Prince Ivar decides to stay here for the winter, and he has seen you looking at him. He asks you to draw him a bath and engages you in an increasingly-naked debate over this strange Christian concept of "sin" as it pertains to the act of love.

    Usually my one-shots only have one chapter, but this scene is so detailed that the word count is egregious and I'm splitting it in two. Also, a reminder that each work in Ivar and the Maidens is a free-standing one-shot that has nothing to do with any of the others.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    scaldingly, brain-meltingly hot. this is the gold standard of seduction, complete with sexual peril/threat, verbal teasing, meditation on the concepts of sin and temptation, and a happy ending that genuinely gives me butterflies in my stomach. this is the red hot crucible of loss of virginity scenes and i prostrate myself before it.
