    Summary

    It's nothing more, nothing less, two ships passing in the night across the churning open water. Lights flickering by, sails shuddering against chilly opposing winds, awaiting the rise of the next sun over a calming current.

    In which, Higuruma and Nanami always pass by each other when picking up lunch from the same bakery.

    Summary

    In those dreams, you are the silver moon, cut out from paper, and I was the black sea, cut out from cardboard, and we yearned for each other, like only a paper moon and a cardboard sea can yearn for their love. 

    Barok van Zieks, Naruhodou Ryuunosuke, and the habit of falling asleep on the shoulder of the person you love the most in the world.

    Summary

    When Marinette Dupain-Cheng and Adrien Agreste meet at ages five and six respectively, they don't understand how much turmoil the road ahead awaits them. After the disappearance of Emilie Agreste, Ladybug and Chat Noir meet at ages thirteen and thirteen, and despite being new to the superhero world, they both understand the heavy burden that comes with simply existing along one another.

    (The sincerity and earnestness in those eyes—she could never forget. "You know what I do when I worry about that?"
    She doesn't dare break eye contact. She was enchanted by him, pulled into his orbit. "What?"

    "I think about how much easier it is when I'm with you," he says tentatively.
    Her breath hitches noticeably. "Really?"

    "Yeah," he said, letting go of her hand to scratch at the back of his neck.
    The corners of her lips lift as she reaches for his hand again. "Thank you," she said. "I feel the same."

    His eyes widened. "Really?")

    Summary

    Pearl never allows herself a moment of bliss. Always more worried about the hermits that rely on her as a caregiver, she will pretend her own needs are non-existent. When her baby birds are all she has, she will do anything to keep them afloat while the anchor that she is, sinks. A singular moment, when Grian and Scar find her, sunken into her river of a mind, becomes more than what she could have imagined.

    Summary

    I'm adding this to that series about wearing masks, because it fits. This was written in school though.

    Basically, there are more to metaphorical masks then you may have considered.

    This is usually where I add my warnings, but I have no idea if any fit.

    Summary

    The first commandment was an answer that neither had to miss. The second was recognition; he kissed her but not her lips. Three of them were a choir dancing without a fight, if the definition made it clear that biting was a must. Then the fourth, and the fifth, his eyes, her breath, and her rise, her fervor, his earnest devotion. If he asked her, You must be hungry? and she prodded, So are you, she'd ask him, Why are you waiting? and he would saunter, Because it's you.

    And I – he didn't ask her if it was terrible for him to want, well-aware that she would thrust him with a finger inside his mouth – love you.

    He was a record that a monster would never bust, pillowed where a mask could slice him where it hurts, and moments from an answer when he asked her for a bite. Because what was worship without desire, without the world for a feast? What was worship when the lorde whispered that she could eat?

    Sausage, miso, mackerel, and bread: it wasn't breakfast until he kissed her, then he was supple within her hands. It wasn't breakfast until she wore him and found him somewhere on her lips.

    Summary

    Elliot doesn't think anything will ever compare to the way his Sunshine makes him feel.

    A very short piece about Elliot falling in love, written through a few too many metaphors that I really hope make sense.

    Summary

    Phoenix does not know what to do with his mouth. Not since he crunched up the glass bottle, felt the shards splinter and crackle between his teeth. Lying in the hospital bed, he thrashed wildly for escape. Anything to get away from his mouth.

    Miles does not know what to do with his mouth. Not since he woke up with his face pressed in his own vomit. Too weak to roll over or lift his face clear, he sobbed pitifully, desperate to escape. Desperate to get away from his mouth.

    Summary

    Lucius stands in a moonbeam and sketches enthusiastically. He looks as if the biggest royal chandelier — of thousand candles — is lit above his head only for his comfort. Well, there are nobody on this ship to compete with him in the art of the self-confidence. Except the ship herself, obviously.

    Izzy Hands is about to grin at this thought.

    Summary

    To admit that it began would mean that he was once a yes and now he was ruined, and there was, perhaps, a time when he wouldn’t be. And how inconceivable, to entertain the possibility of being without ache looming over his days, how naive, how childish, to hope, to want for things when he knew perfectly that they would never come.

    Dazai knows history. It goes like this: gone with a bang, out like a light. There are many names in history, but none of them are theirs.

    or, Dazai wants. It takes a long way to figure out where to go from there.
