Turning Tides Coming

A post-s13 fic, finally finished in time for the tail end of Carolina Appreciation Week. Thanks to @anneapocalypse for the cheerleading and the read-through :)

“I got in the giant armor, Epsilon flipped his shit about Tex’s helmet, and we all fought off like a billion space pirates –”

“Tex?” Carolina says.

The fight’s over, but Carolina and Tucker aren’t done just yet.


Maine steps on to the Pelican, and Carolina’s blood turns icy with adrenaline.

For Mrs. Kimball, the librarian who saved my life.

“If we face the Dementors in fiction, we are far more equipped to face them in real life.”-J.K. Rowling

“My childhood consisted of more paperback books and pixels than people.
I would spend hours under covers, face illuminated by flashlight,
escaping into dragon lairs and spider infested forests,
donned in crimson and gold instead of crooked glasses and hand-me-downs.
I remember reading at a grey park bench during recess,
pretending to preoccupy myself on the days
when my classmates would create secret clubs
and I wasn’t allowed to know the password.
In my world,
the word outcast did not exist.
It was a place where there were spaces at every table
and all forms of magic were welcome.
When I was thirteen,
my best friends were the school librarians
and my science teacher,
they showed me that
the passion for knowledge and the desire to dream
were things to not be ashamed of.
learned to defend themselves against darkness for a reason:
there were ways to make the years of torment vanish,
it was just that wands didn’t work in this alternate universe.
Fantasy taught us how to fight,
but also how to forgive,
even after the spells
have been broken.”
