A/N: Long time no see! I’ve been super consumed with school, the election, design, work, and various other things. It felt good to finally finish this piece. I started it in October when I was really having a difficult time and finally was able to finish it today.  Leave your thoughts here.

Warnings: Some hints of anxiety. 

It starts in her room at 1 am on a Thursday morning. The moon is full and its hanging low across the NYC skyline. He climbs up her fire escape and gently tugs up her window, climbing through. He knows it’s unsafe for her to leave her window unlocked, so he makes sure to lock it, before approaching the edge of her bed.

She’s usually a heavy sleeper, so that’s why he’s so surprised when her eyes flutter open. She blinks multiple times, before finally stretching and letting out a long yawn. She’s clutching her blanket close to her chest and he’s suddenly aware of the draft in her room.

Written for the following prompt: Erik is an aggressive, dangerous, cynical mutant, hardened from years of being passed through private laboratories and used for experimentation. He’s covered in surgical scars from operations, tattooed and bar coded like a lab rat, and blind from an experiment done on his eyes. … Charles Xavier finds out about him. Charles runs a sort of sanctuary for mutants that provides lost, abandoned, abused, runaway mutants with shelter, comfort, and help with ability control. He thinks he can rehabilitate Erik and save him from execution, and convinces the government that he can.

When Erik arrives, he is a lot worse than Charles thought he would be … Everyone else can see that Erik is a nuclear bomb waiting to go off, but Charles refuses to give up on him. …

The first time Charles sneaks up on him wearing no metal, it triggers him and he reacts instinctively, with violence. … Erik discovers why Charles understands him so well: he was once used in experiments as well, experiments run by his own family, and in one of them, he lost his voice, so he uses his telepathy to communicate.

Blind Erik, mute Charles, the love.

“Mount Fuji.” Harry answers smugly – he was the one who named him, and Y/N looks over to him with the fondest eyes he’s ever seen.

“Mount Fuji? That just made him even cuter!” She all but whines, looking down at the dog seriously, “I will give all my love to you.”

Harry slides off the barstool, walking over and crouching down besides the two of them, “Y'know usually he doesn’t like strangers. Think you might be some sorta dog whisperer.”

Y/N looks over to him, but there’s no witty quips at her mouth, only smiling at him with the softest gaze he’s ever seen her have, eyes filled with so much unadulterated love for this Pug and it makes his heart swell with warmth.

Harry vows that one day, he’s going to get her to look at him like that.

When All You Are is Honesty

Rating: T

Pairing: Farkle Minkus/Riley Matthews

Prompt: She kept pretending for a long time, then it all fell away and she could no longer hide the truth. - anon

Summary: In which Riley can’t stop asking questions, but can’t seem to even begin to utter the truth. 

Word Count: 2922

A/N: The prompt is used a little bit loosely in this one. I already had started writing this story last night at like 2 am when I was a little bit upset about something and just started to churn it out. I got really excited when I saw this prompt today, since it was aligning with a lot of what I had already started writing! Thanks to @ilvermornyexchangestudent for looking this over!

She notices the remarks in Pre-Calculus. They’re in the middle of solving a problem Riley doesn’t quite understand, and she can’t help being inquisitive. So, she raises her hand. Over and over again. Her teacher doesn’t bear any indication of annoyance; in fact, she is welcoming to Riley’s curiosity.

But then, there’s a snicker on the other side of the room. It’s coming from Brad, the poster child of Abigail Adams High School. He has decent grades, an athletic physique, and a musical mind. However, he really lacked common courtesy.

She decided to ignore him and continue to focus on the lesson at hand. But then she hears, “I’ve never met someone as dense as she is. I bet she wouldn’t understand the basics of how to draw a parabola.”

“I found that meetings with players who’d reached the same level of technology went as follows:

"Hello, are you friendly?”
“Depends. Is that a gun?”
“Yes. Is that a gun?”
“Yes.”
“Then I am friendly.”

Funny how many friendly people you meet when you’ve got a gun, isn’t it? It’s almost like the NRA were right all along.“ - Ben "Yahtzee” Croshaw: Zero Punctuation: Survival Special.

“It shouldn’t be snowing so soon.” Harry is staring at the sky, the snow dropping on his face before he notices her staring at him. “Hm?” His hum is higher, out of confusion as to why she’s looking she presumes, and Y/N lifts her hand to his cheek.

“Your cheeks,” she murmurs, a grin broadening on her mouth, “Oh, your cheeks Harry!” She cries out, fingertips denting the cold skin, “I’ve never seen you blush before.”

“Blush?” Harry asks, hand lifting to cover hers, “I’m blushing?”

“Peaches!” Riley Matthews cheered. Maya Hart wavered as she tumbled through the bay window, eventually finding her balance again and wrapping her arms around Riley.

“Riles, what’s going on? Why did you cancel going to our study session tonight with the rest of the group?” Riley skipped back over to her closet, pulling out a series of dresses.

“I got asked to Homecoming and I need your help picking out what to wear. We may have to go shopping, but I thought it would be a good idea to start looking at dresses here and then working from there.” She held out a lavender fit and flare dress. “What do you think?”

She lets go, turning in his lap to face him and she sees him licking at his lips. Her head is foggy, and her body feels like Jell-O, and she giggles at the thought of having Jell-O legs before leaning her head against his shoulder.
