    Summary

    Izuku is okay with the fact that he will never be in a happy relationship. He’s okay with working an unfulfilling desk job. He’s okay with staying up at night, as existential musings run through his head. He feels lost and lonely, and maybe he could use some therapy that he can’t afford. But really, it’s okay.

    His friends don’t agree though. Deciding he needs some change, Ochako ultimately succeeds in dragging him to a pole class. And while Izuku is expecting, at best, to make a minor fool of himself before the unfairly attractive heterochromatic instructor, he never expected for this to be the start of finding himself. With a map that he’s making up as he goes, Izuku is at last navigating his own internal galaxy. And for the first time, he’s excited to see what lies at its center.

    Summary

    In the midst of Lucifer's returning wings, returned without reason or consent, he is left scrambling under the weight they bring. Once again he is a pawn in his fathers game.

    His attempt to forge forward despite the uncertainty and finally speak to Chloe about everything comes to nothing. Even worse, they're fighting and he has no idea on how to fix it. Their relationship is suffering, and he fears the tentative hold on the friendship is faltering. He feels as if he's run out of chances with her and that thought terrifies him.

    While trying to navigate just who slapped the wings on his back, to find answers, a very unexpected complication lands in the middle of an already convoluted situation.

    A child of all things, who may or may not be what she seems.

    The child is odd, not like a normal child. Not that Lucifer knows a stitch about children, having only the Urchin to compare but this one is quiet, careful. There is knowledge trapped in her head, it come out in pieces that make zero sense. Even more curious she's connected to him somehow, his divinity quite literally is a part of her.

    It's Just one more thing he doesn't understand. Things couldn't possibly get any worse, right?

    Summary

    As soon as Meng Tian lays eyes on Yi Xiaochuan he knows that there’s something about him. Something different yet paradoxically familiar all at once.

     

    No, actually that’s a lie. The first time he sets eyes on his little brother the only thing that he thinks about is getting rid of the nuisance as quickly as possible so he can get back to doing his actual job and salvage something from this disaster of a mission. Granted, the first time that he does lay eyes on him, it’s in the middle of a no holds-barred fight by the side of an extremely stiff cliff face as he protects Princess Yushu from ‘bandits’. While said princess – whom he has sworn to deliver safely to the Emperor and who has already indirectly led to the death of the majority of his men - is careening down a winding mountainous cliff, trapped in an extremely fragile carriage still tethered to a panicked horse.

     

    Meng Tian has found his long lost younger brother at last! He's less enthused about all the other older brothers that he's been picking up along the way...

    Summary

    “How is it? I mean, being an Aes Sedai?” She decided to start basic and simple.
    He coughed in surprise, “an interesting question…”⠀
    He gave her another look over,
    “Do you want the long or short answer?” ⠀
    “Give me both!” she said very enthusiastically. He chuckled as he scratched his beard again. Light.
    “Well in short it is hard. But to elaborate… You dedicate your life to this entity and their cause and your own. Most will hate you for it, and you will rarely be thanked. You will see pain and hurt you can fix and those you cannot and carry all of it with you for a very long time. You will watch those around you be born, grow up, grow old and die while the face you see in the mirror does not change...” she watched his expression very carefully.
    “However, you will have a touch on the world that few others ever have or will. You will help more people than you can count, you will have purpose. It is tiring, it is painful, it is rewarding, it is honorable. That is how it is to be Aes Sedai.” He let out a long breath so did she with him.
    “That was a very beautiful answer Arran Sedai.” She said softly at last.

    Summary

    “What were you doing?” Felix asks.

    “Hm? Just trying to make this line here a little longer.” His mother smiles sadly. “Looks like you inherited this short line from your mama.”

    “Why?” Felix looks at his palm and paws at his mother’s hand. Just as she said, the palm line closest to her thumb looks like his, not quite following the thumb muscle down to their wrists. However, hers is still longer than his.

    But Felix can’t see the problem with it. It’s just a line on his hand, and it’s just a line on her hand. Are they supposed to go that low? Does it really matter? What does it mean?

    She averts her gaze. “Well, I read that the longer that line is, the longer your life is said to be.”

    ------
    Since his childhood, Felix has been told he's going to die young.

    Summary

    5 times (but not the only times) Rost worried (or feared) for Aloy and one time—well. Yeah.

    “Aloy climbs out of the ruins unharmed save for a few scratches, with a remnant of the Old World perched on her ear like a tiny bird—singing a song only she can hear, dangerous in a way that anything made of lit metal can be.

    Rost is just glad his—that she didn’t break her neck when she landed at the bottom.”

    Summary

    “Yao-ge, Yao-ge,” Huaisang says thoughtfully, fanning himself a bit slower for dramatic effect. “I’m sure you’ve already come up with five different possible strategies to get your boyfriend over here, so why don’t you put yourself out of this misery?”
    “Eight,” Meng Yao corrects him. “All of which count as, quote-unquote, meddling, which I was explicitly forbidden to do, and I wouldn’t want to ruin the party.”

    (Meng Yao does not organize Wei Ying’s wedding. It causes more emotional catharsis than one might expect.)
