    Summary

    “If it’s any time in the next month, I can’t make it,” Wilbur mutters coolly, his tone immediately sending an unpleasant jolt down Dream’s spine, every one of his thoughts screaming at him, he hates you, he can’t stand you, you’re being such a baby about this. Deep down, he should know that Wilbur didn't mean anything by it, but Dream can't help the horrible feeling that curls around his heart- it's ugly and even worse, it burns.

    “You can just say you’re busy, Wil."

    Summary

    WangXian reflections on love. Perhaps a bit of indulgence in poetic romance, framed as a loose collection of individual stories posted as chapters so I can keep experimenting with different styles, and also adding all those snippets that don't lend themselves to longer arcs.

    Each can be read as a standalone story.

    Romantic m/m intimacy, affection, tenderness; nothing explicit / no technical descriptions. No specific number of chapters - I will just keep adding to this. LWJ hopelessly in love with WWX hopelessly adoring LWJ :-)

    I've added chapter ratings to the later chapters. Some of them are set in my Gusu City modern AU.

    Summary

    “Hannibal,” he spoke the name aloud, as if speaking it would conjure him. But no one answered. Will’s throat swelled with grief held back. Hannibal was gone. Hannibal was gone forever, and Will would never see him again.

    He stood there, a ghost in mourning for someone else’s life, for long enough that day turned into night, perhaps more than once. It was difficult to say, being dead.

    Summary

     

    Won't you come with me?
    Walk amongst the stars
    Sing the moon's lullaby
    Whisper secrets of the world
    Cloaked in dreams 
    Laced in nightmares
    All that I offer can be yours
    So won't you come and dance with me?

     

    A collection of poetry, mostly written by Nameless, and continuations occasionally made by Crystal. Just a bunch of fancy words strung together, honestly, but I (Crystal) think Nameless' poems are great. Hope you give this a read :)

    Feels range from fantasy, to outer space, to ordinary lives and to the view of the world we live in. Mostly, our poetry does not rhyme

    Summary

    “The hell do you want?” Ant snapped, setting his bow aside and pulling himself up into a crouch on the edge of his perch on the roof. His jaw twinged when he spoke, and he grimaced.

    Gumi grinned. “Ain’t what I want, it’s what Bad wants. He’s been looking for you and I think he might get a hernia from worrying.”

    ———

    Or, in other words, Antfrost and Velvet have a lot to talk about after the events of Where Is Your Rider.

    Ironically, sometimes healing hurts more than the wound itself.

    Summary

    "Do you ever feel different?" Will whispered

    A storm was beginning to brew, Mike took in the sight of Will, eyes pondering, face flushed from the cold. Will’s mouth was forming around words Mike couldn't hear. Will was staring back at Mike, in the light of his driveway.

    or, snippets of Mike and Will.

    Summary

    If Aster was the sun, then I suppose I was Icarus, desperate in my devotion and devoted to my demise. I’d crafted my own wings and flown too close, I let embers singe my heart and kerosene fill my veins.

    He was the sun, and I longed for the inferno that he was despite its ardent embrace.

    Because Icarus was a fool who learned what it was to crash and burn, and I was no better.

    Summary

    His throat burns. His stomach is ablaze, but he's still cold. His fingers are boney and his hands shake something vicious. He feels like he can't move. Like he's not in his body, like he's some kind of bystander in this dull movie. A person standing on the sidewalk in the rain, watching a car slip on ice and roll over into another, watching flames lick at the metal, hissing steam, blood running towards the drains, pink in the rain.

    Wilbur doesn't cry or scream or breathe. There's vodka in his tea, and his body is on fire, and he's still cold. There are blankets wrapped around his shoulders, wooden boards pinned up over the shattered window, but the rain still patters in, pooling on the sill. He can't breathe. It feels like an asthma attack. He knows it's not. The medicine won't help if he doesn't want to breathe.

    Summary

    Summary

    I’ll give you my heart to make a place for it to happen, evidence of a love that transcends hunger. Is that too much to expect? That I would name the stars for you? That I would take you there?

    You said Tell me about your books, your visions made of flesh and light and I said This is the Moon. This is the Sun. Let me name the stars for you. Let me take you there.

    Or

    Dream and George and a life of love.

    Summary

    If you gave Sakusa Kiyoomi a dollar for every time he’d seen Miya Atsumu perform on a screen or play in a recording, he’d have enough money to buy himself a new Steinway. One day, they meet. They play together, they clash, and, eventually, their managers dupe them into touring Europe together.

    Since I’m a nerd, here’s a SakuAtsu classical musician AU.
