    Summary

    “Eliot.”

    Margo inhales sharply next to him, shuffling, and he doesn’t miss the way Alice and Julia both sit up straight, either, as Eliot grows impossibly stiller before jerking his head up and leveling Quentin with a confused glare thats confusion is as fake as Quentin’s confidence.

    “Yes?”

    Quentin tilts his head. “Truth or dare?”

    Eliot’s right eye twitches, and he leans back in his seat, eyebrows furrowing. “I’m sorry,” he says, “I don’t recall saying I was joining in your reindeer games.”

    “Just pick. Truth,” he pauses, almost long enough to let the word settle like it’s the challenge it is, before continuing, “or dare?”

    Eliot watches him for a beat, before rolling his eyes with a sigh and leaning forward to set his drink on the coffee table. “Fine,” he says as he sits up and adjusts his vest. “Dare.”

    A little flare of annoyance flutters in Quentin’s gut. “Good,” he says, “Then I dare you to stop being an asshole.”

    Or, the gang plays truth or dare

    Summary

    "Um. Hi,” Quentin says with a fragile wave of his hand as the sound of glass shattering fills the space between them.

    Eliot’s spine goes taut, muscles tensing as glass ricochets off the flooring and smatters against the front of his sleep pants and Quentin’s shins. Tiny specks of blood follow in their wake, and Eliot stumbles back a step, wide eyed. Nearly slips on the coffee splattered all over the floor — hisses as a particularly sharp piece of glass snags on the heel of his foot. 

    “What the fuck?” 

    Quentin blinks at him owlishly, before shrugging and wringing his hands in front of him. “I’m . . . guessing Margo didn’t. Tell you?”

    Summary

    t’s a list. 

    Save Eliot is at the top of the list—which, Eliot’s not afraid to admit sends a little stutter through his heartbeat. It’s still hard, these days, knowing just how deep Quentin fell into that particular hole of depression trying to save him. Appreciated, but. Hard. To acknowledge. Especially when he considers where that path lead Quentin. 

    Get Penny back for Kady. Which is so disgustingly in character Eliot wants to slap him. 

    He skims the next two, barely taking the time to see the words save, kill, break, because there’s a word at the bottom of the post-it that catches his attention above all. Steers his peripheral all the way down—though its not too great a distance—and locks it on the last thing written on the green paper. 

    Convince Eliot I love him. 

    The paper crinkles, and then slips from between his fingers as he stumbles back and into the wall beside the door. He watches it fall — an effervescent butterfly falling to its death.

    Summary

    Standing in the storm, they can feel every individual drop of rain among the torrent, each one containing a moment from the future they've chosen. Many are cold and lash at them painfully. Many are warm and fill them with hope. All of them shape who they are and what they will become.
