He breaks a bit more when she kicks his hand away, and Rukia prays, beseeches whomever to help Ichigo know her true intentions. Cruelty isn’t her objective. She simply needs him to live. She attempts to drive love, hatred, and companionship back to where they came from, but her eyes fill with tears. Rukia spares him a glance, heavy and consumed with every useless emotion, and she vows never to forgive him. Stay still. She hopes Ichigo will. She needs him to because one more inch and her brother’s next attack will finish the job.
A little more of that innocence, she’s chastised but fallen in love with, fritters into the void, and it isn’t that he doesn’t want to move, to charge after her and pretend this night never happened, it’s that he can’t. She leaves him behind to grab a few more handfuls of life, and when she half-turns to burn his dying form in her memory so that she can drown in her own loathing; not close to a fitting punishment for the burdens she’s placed on him, she feels worthless, less than trash. However, he’s rendered speechless as the light of the Senkaimon bathes her, and makes her glow like crown jewels. He will not squander the time she’s loaned him. He will save her.
Hey!! Can I get Kakashi being careless with a one night stand and nine months later, the momma drops the baby off to Kakashi and is like "here lord hokage, your problem now" and he looks to Sakura for help, cuz come on, he doesn't know who else to turn to.

It was one of those nights
One of those nights when the sadness Kakashi was
feeling consumed him alive. One of those nights when he couldn’t bear the loneliness
that was closing in on his empty body. The darkness that surrounded him felt so
heavy, knocking the air out of his lungs. Kakashi couldn’t breathe, couldn’t move, but the worst of
them all: he couldn’t cry.
that was swirling inside his heart couldn’t be exteriorized. He
twisted and turned around his cold bed, but Kakashi couldn’t find his place. He
needed a warm soul next to his aching body.
Kakashi clenched the fabric of his shirt and muffled a
silent scream into his pillow. No sound came out of his throat. It felt dry and
His chest was in pain, his mind was in agony, and his heart was beating so fast he could hear it drumming inside of his ears.
I know these will all be stories some day, and our pictures will become old photographs. We all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now, these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here, and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive. And you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song, and that drive with the people who you love most in this world. And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite.

“And you know what? Lindsay and I… We made an extra life.”
No, I totally didn’t cry over this announcement, and no I totally haven’t been obsessing over it, unable to stop thinking about how Michael must be scared of losing their baby and how absolutely excited and in love he is with his child already and how Lindsay is so happy and how they are going to be the cutest parents to ever parent and how happy I am to watch them grow over the years.
(And I thought I’d wrap it up in three months… Whoops)! Thank you for your constant support, patience, and kudos (all 12,700 of them?)!! This project has really gotten me through some tough anxiety (and lupus, apparently) whilst introducing me to the wonderful, talented, empathetic, and creative sterek fandom. I’m honored to be friends with so many of you *hugs*
The final chapter is still in progress, as is book!Home! I’m eager to share both with you soon. ♥
hc on even and isak (+eskild) going to pride together? xx
yess!!!!!! yes yes yes!!
ok so in my head if isak were to go to pride it would be a Group Effort not just even and eskild… he would need all the support he can get ok
bc here’s the thing about pride - it’s overwhelming, esp if you’re someone whose never really been open about your sexuality, or struggled with internalized homophobia the way isak has. to be suddenly surrounding by so many open + proud gay people, it makes you wonder if you really belong with them. sometimes it feels like you’re making it up bc you’re not as ready as they are to go and make out with your boyfriend in front of the whole world or even just paint rainbows on your face.
and also its just like??? the world has sort of shamed this sort of behavior all of your life, you never see it in tv shows or movies, and isaks never really seen this in his own personal life other than eskild so just to see??? himself in this?? and people like him??? everywhere? and to see them happy??? man it would be SO much for him to take in.
i think he would struggle a lot with whether or not he should go, if he’s ready to be there and be out and have his sexuality on display like that. but eskild thinks it would be good for him, bring him in touch with his own community, so he pesters isak until he gives in.
at first isak isn’t planning on going with anyone other than eskild and even (who he asked hesitantly, in more of a whisper than anything else, a this is really stupid but there’s Pride this weekend and eskilds making me go and i was wondering if …. maybe you would want to come with me to which even smiles a little bit and goes oh yeah im totally down for that! pride last year was really fun and isak’s a little surprised because he never knew that even already did these things, and it makes him feel a little less weird about it)
but then the Boys find out and isak’s sort of embarassed bc he thinks they’re just gonna be like oh. ok. and be weird about it, but they react really well???? and they ask hey that sounds like fun could we come with you?
(jonas noticed how weird isak is acting about it and lowkey thinks he might need a friend there, its his way of asking do you want me to be there for you?)
and isak feels this relief of tension he didn’t even know he had, he didnt know how nice it would feel to have friends who want to be there to support him, even if they’re not gay themselves (as far as we know… [eye emoji])
and jonas tells eva, who tells the rest of the Girls, and they all agree to go together - eva, who’s been growing more and more aware of her own sexuality and thinks that maybe going will help her figure it out, vilde, who has a part of her that really wants to go for some reason and who doesn’t realize why yet, noora, who’s already been so many times with eskild and loves it, sana, who feels a bit nervous about probably being the only girl there wearing a hijab but ready to support isak + prove that her religion doesnt make her any less supportive, and chris, who just really wants to get drunk lbr.
so it becomes a Group Thing and isak never meant it to but he feels like he can breathe a little bit easier, it doesnt feel so weird, its obvious now that it never had to be a thing he had to keep a secret.
