is there another word for

battle couple:

it didn’t take long, the blue glow of his blade and the burning red of magnus’s magic lighting up their faces and before alec knew it there was some semblance of silence, the two of them standing there panting. magic was still crackling in the air and alec had ichor on his hand, dripping down his blade. x

abandonment
would seem selfish
if i was not already empty.
    
unprepared,
quaking,
i rattle bones
and hear an orchestra.
   
living and dying
are often irrelevant.
    
the intrepid unknown,
   
i sleep
across train tracks
and feel very much alive.
—  poeticallyordinary, intrepid unknown.
I like to read a book once
then read it again
a year later
or years later
because the words on the pages are the same
but the characters
are seen so different
through my eyes
because while they have not changed
I have
and my mind set is different than a year ago
or years ago

I think we all die plenty times while we live;
heartbreaks and  broken minds,
ripped skin and bleeding hearts.
Actions and reactions,
everything leads to another
and then we die
over and over.

But we live too.
Oh, do we live so many times while we are alive!
Butterflies and tilted smiles,
healed scars and love at first sight.
Beautiful words that lead to smiles
everything leads to another
and we live
over and over.

We die,
we live,
but in the end
we are happy and whole.

Do I have any followers with ADHD? Or does anyone have some really good information on it? I want to write a character who has ADHD but I don’t know anything about it except the basics so I’m looking to educate myself. Any help beyond a wiki article would appreciated!

“It is not because Zarkon suspects anything?” Ulaz asks.

He gets right to the point. The hallway they have sequestered themselves in will only be empty for so long, another patrol unit is set to pass through there in a few minutes.

“Doubtful,” Thace says. “I have been careful.”

“Then why send you to the frontlines of Haneer?”

Thace does not like the idea either. It seems counterproductive to the Blade of Marmora’s goal to take down the Galra empire by helping them to expand it. He would much rather continue cautiously collecting what information he can from the databases on the ship as he has been.

“You act as if I am the only one going.”

“You are the only one that matters.”

“Do not worry. If I should fall another of the blades will take my place. You will not be alone in your mission.”

“That is not what I mean.”

Ulaz takes a step forward and reaches up, trails his fingers along Thace’s jaw and up his cheek. It is an intimacy they have not allowed themselves since they came aboard Zarkon’s ship.

“Ulaz,” Thace cautions.

They are running out of time.

“Give me this,” Ulaz pleads.

Thace hesitates only a moment before his resolve weakens and he grabs Ulaz’s hand, presses their foreheads together. He allows them a moment where they only have each other to worry about. A short-lived moment, gone as both of their ears perk at the sound of mechanical footsteps in the distance.

“Knowledge or death,” Thace says, pulling away.

“Knowledge or death,” Ulaz repeats. “Please. Be safe.”

Thace nods, gives him a ghost of a smile before backpedaling away and disappearing down the next hall.
