based off prompt by i-mthebadguy:
‘There was a fic idea posted on here where pairs of Sky People are bonded to the extent of sharing injuries. The best part was the idea of the delinquents yelling at each other when their bonded partner injured themselves. Does that make sense? [terrible at explanations]’

a/n: To be honest, this is the first time I’m hearing about that, so I took the liberty of spinning the idea however I saw fit. Sorry in advance if this is not what you were expecting as it is a bit different from your prompt. This is a canon au.
The moment her head swung to the side as if hit by an invisible force, Clarke was angry beyond reason. The pain spread down her jawline, her shoulder throbbing as the needle slipped from between her fingers.
Correction, she wasn’t the one angry, but the cold rage was filling her chest nonetheless, and she knew that her bondmate had something to do with that.
Clarke rolled her shoulder, trying to chase away the phantom discomfort, and smiled tightly at Fox – the poor girl had frozen in shock the moment Clarke’s lip had started bleeding. When the next painful tingle came from Clarke’s elbow and then her hand, the blond haired girl gritted her teeth against the strain and wiped the blood from her chin with the back of her hand.
“I’ll be right back.” Fox nodded, at a loss for words when faced with Clarke’s grim expression.
There was only one reason why she felt like she was the punching bag in the middle of a fight – Bellamy; it absolutely sucked when your bondmate had a short temper.
Clarke knew about it from before, of course, about the bonds and the emotional links; her mother shared one with her father, after all.
The Ark might have had thick walls, but gossip like that was fast to spread. It wasn’t often and not every person felt it, but the connection was there no matter how hard the Council tried to deny it. It was a weak link and those who had experienced it used to describe it more as a fleeting awareness than a bond; it had only two extremes – happiness and calmness when the other was ecstatic, terror and pain when the other was dead. That was the extent of it (or so they thought).
But then Earth happened and everything turned around.
