Fasten your seatbelts guys, I'm about to dive into the spoiler from BNHA Chapter 335 to prove that maybe Horikoshi had this planned the whole time!
Tumblr media
Don't read below the cut if you don't want to know the traitor reveal from 335.
Okay, so if the leaks are true then our girl Hagakure is the traitor. Personally I'm mortified because she was my fave girl.
BUT. I might have ignored a really big clue that we all passed off as a funny joke when we first saw it.
I'm of course referring to this:
Tumblr media
A manga panel from the Training Camp arc.
"Ha-ha, Hagakure sleeps in the nude."
...or does she? Is she actually there, or has she slipped out to speak with the League? This is the night before the attack on the students. All the girls are asleep so no one knows whether Hagakure is still in the room or not.
"No, you can clearly see she's there because her blanket is hovering over her legs."
Except, if you look at this adjoining manga panel, you'll see that a blanket can be raised up without anyone being in the bed:
Tumblr media
We know thanks to the second light novel that the empty bed in the boy's room is Iida on his way to the bathroom.
Again, thanks to the light novel, a lot of the boys are ruled out as accomplices since Iida has to fight his way past their sleeping bodies to reach the hallway (Ojiro included. Thank you that's all the proof I need that my tailbaby is good. I take no criticisms at this time).
But back to Hagakure.
Perhaps she actually is still in the room in the above manga panel, but that's not to say she stays there all night.
If we go back to an illustration from the light novel, we see the class A & B girls having a sleepover. Everyone is in pyjamas, including Hagakure:
Tumblr media
Why, then, is she the only one to shrug her clothes when she goes to sleep? We know from the season 4 second ending that she does wear pyjamas:
Tumblr media
I believe she chose to sleep nakey that night so that the others wouldn't know when she was out of the room. All she had to do was bunch up her blanket at the bottom of the bed and it would look like she was still there.
Hagakure slipped out, told the League where her class was, they stole Bakugou and in turn she ultimately led to All Might's downfall.
I'm sad Hagakure is probably the traitor, but the clues might have been there all along 馃

they don鈥檛 love you like i love you
They lie to each other all the time.
Not real lies, of course. Not about the big stuff. One superhero-side-hustle-reveal was quite enough to shake the bedrock of their trust hard enough to frighten them away from ever doing it again. So there鈥檚 no real lies, no secrets anymore.
It鈥檚 just the little stuff, now. Sometimes when Kara checks up on whether she鈥檚 eaten lunch, Lena may embellish the triple shot Americano she鈥檇 mainlined between conference calls into something more resembling a nutritious meal. When Kara sends a snap of herself wearing a new baby blue button up in an over-lit dressing room, Lena replies with a forced-casual looks great! instead of the I want to lick your biceps through that shirt that would be closer to an honest response. Once when her best friend suggested a hot yoga class after work, Lena had pretended to immediately come down with a nasty cold if only to avoid the devastation of witnessing Kara Danvers in a sports bra.
For the most part it鈥檚 harmless. But with all of that said, there鈥檚 a particular one of Kara鈥檚 little lies that really gets under Lena鈥檚 skin. It niggles because it feels a little too analogous to the First Lie, the Big Lie. Because Kara lies about it as if Lena is oblivious, as if her flimsy excuses in any way mask the reality of the situation. As if Lena is stupid enough to accept it blindly.
And if there鈥檚 one thing Lena Luthor, with her four degrees and Mensa certification, is not, it鈥檚 stupid.
So here, now, pulled fully into Kara鈥檚 lap as they recline on her couch in front of a Planet Earth marathon, one of the blonde鈥檚 hands carding through Lena鈥檚 loose hair while the other strokes lightly over the jut of her hip bone through her borrowed sweats, Lena is just about ready to call bullshit on Kara鈥檚 most blatant, most frequent little lie.
There is just no way that this is what friends are for.
it is possible, lena will concede, that kara likes her as more than a friend. it's also possible that kara's just a naturally handsy person and lena is hopelessly deluded. clearly, there's only one way to find out the truth: through rigorous scientific observation.
21k, one shot, disgustingly fluffy

food for thought: let鈥檚 cry about the Roy kids together
Tumblr media
Okay, so lemme start with this: I don鈥檛 know why it鈥檚 today and not at any earlier time that it dawned on me that Logan Roy could have some traits/case of a narcissistic personality disorder. I honestly don鈥檛 know, because that road of inquiry lines pretty nicely with a few things. Whatever the case of that might be, I was just sitting around and had a thought鈩:聽is Logan a narcissist?聽So, as any person would have done, I鈥檝e googled it and of course I鈥檝e stumbled upon some interesting articles which has led me... well, here I guess.
Not sure if anyone posted something similar on tumblr dot com - I鈥檓 guessing yes, but if so I haven鈥檛 seen it anywhere around so that鈥檚 my excuse for this one (pls let me know about such post/s 鈥榗ause I鈥檇 love to read 鈥榚m) - but I wanted to share some fun information I鈥檝e just acquired with you all so we could cry about the Roy kids together & have some things to mull over etc etc
disclaimer! Those are not an original thoughts/ideas of mine and I do not take credit for them. What鈥檚 more I don鈥檛 feel the need to paraphrase聽nor do I feel eloquent enough to dish it out on my own. I do not think this is聽鈥榯he definitive鈥, neither is it the full read on those characters but it is an interesting side to look from if you haven鈥檛 already. All I want here is to lay some things on you in the form of quotes and such for fun and games and soul hurting times if you haven鈥檛 ventured into this particular avenue just yet. All the links to the articles will be provided at the end (or wherever tumblr will let me add them for this post to be visible in tags) if you want to read from the source.

A Kind of Wonderful
Tim stumbled up to the counter, his friend鈥檚 arm holding him back the only thing preventing him from crashing into it. 聽The black haired barista watched him with an amused smile. 聽鈥淐an I help you two?鈥 she asked looking between the two of them.
鈥淭he strongest coffee you have,鈥 Tim begged. 聽鈥淚n the largest size you have.鈥
She smirked at him. 聽鈥淗ow strong were you thinking? 聽That can be dangerous.鈥
He perked up slightly, the promise of strong coffee encouraging him out of his daze. 聽鈥淚 can handle it,鈥 he assured her.
鈥淗e鈥檒l love you forever if you can give him something that keeps him awake for the next week鈥 without putting drugs in it,鈥 his companion urged her. 聽鈥淓spresso for me, please.鈥
She nodded at the companion with a smile and returned her focus to Tim. 聽鈥淚 might have a secret recipe I can use, but only for someone very special,鈥 she disclosed in a secretive voice.
鈥淚鈥檓 special,鈥 Tim insisted, leaning in to match her tone.
鈥淥h, he鈥檚 definitely that,鈥 his friend snorted.
The barista charged his card and moved to start their orders with a wink. 聽Tim watched her closely as she worked, which the barista definitely noted, if her posturing, smirk, and constant eye flicks to him were any indication. 聽After only a few minutes, she turned back to them with their drinks. 聽She barely acknowledged the friend鈥檚 thank you, focusing entirely on Tim to see if he liked her concoction.
Tim took a hesitant sip and his eyes immediately brightened. 聽He turned to the barista with a brilliant, grateful smile. 聽鈥淭hank you Coffee Goddess. 聽This is amazing.鈥
鈥淐offee Goddess?鈥 she asked with a shy smile.
鈥淎 deserved title after this. 聽How did you do it?鈥 he pressed, leaning closer.
鈥淭rade secret,鈥 she grinned with a wink. 聽鈥淕uess you鈥檒l have to keep coming back to get more. By the way, that isn鈥檛 your name on the cup鈥 or your number, though I鈥檇 love to have those鈥. If you鈥檙e not seeing anyone,鈥 she added hesitantly, eyeing his companion.
鈥淗e isn鈥檛,鈥 his companion threw in. 聽The glare Tim sent was meant to emulate Batman鈥檚. 聽It was meant to strike fear and inspire silence, but instead resulted in an indifferent shrug.
鈥淥h, okay. 聽Well, feel free to use them鈥 if you want.鈥 聽She bit her lip as she moved to the next customer.
鈥淯m鈥 I鈥檒l think about it. 聽Thank you again,鈥 he raised the coffee cup up to her and waved nervously with his other hand.
Once safely out the door, Tim eyed his coffee suspiciously. 鈥淲e can never go back there,鈥 he grumbled into his cup. 聽鈥淭his is really good though鈥 maybe I can send someone to get it for me instead,鈥 he mused.
His friend side eyed him as they walked. 聽鈥淲hat are you talking about?鈥
Tim looked at her with wide eyes. 聽鈥淚 can鈥檛 go back in there鈥 she gave me her number. 聽She was鈥 flirting.鈥
She laughed. 聽鈥淎nd? 聽She鈥檚 cute. And you didn鈥檛 seem to mind. 聽You were watching her awfully intently there and there was an awful lot of leaning, by both of you.鈥
鈥淏ecause I wanted to see if I could figure out what she was doing!鈥 he exclaimed, throwing his arms wide. 聽鈥淭his is great coffee, Marinette. 聽I don鈥檛 want to have to wait for open hours to get it.鈥
鈥淵ou know, if you date her, you wouldn鈥檛 just see her during store hours. 聽She could make it for you whenever,鈥 she pointed out.
鈥淏ut then I鈥檇 have to date her.鈥 聽Tim wrinkled his nose at the thought. 聽鈥淚 don鈥檛 want to date her. 聽I just want the coffee.鈥
Marinette shook her head and kept walking straight ahead, refusing to look at him. 聽鈥淚t wouldn鈥檛 kill you to get out and go on a date once in a while. 聽It鈥檚 at least been since before you met me since you have. 聽She even took the first step for you. 聽You don鈥檛 have to agonize over whether or not she likes you. 聽She gave you her number. 聽She does. She鈥檚 cute, sweet, a coffee goddess apparently,鈥 the description came out a bit more bitterly than she had intended. She quickly cleared her throat to get back on topic. 聽鈥淎nd interested. 聽You should go for it. 聽Have some fun.鈥
鈥淵eah, not interested,鈥 he scoffed, rushing to keep up with her. 聽鈥淎nd I have plenty of fun. 聽I have fun with you.鈥
鈥淲hy not? 聽And you can have a different kind of fun with her.鈥
鈥淚 just don鈥檛 think it would work out,鈥 he said awkwardly, refusing to look over at her as they walked. 聽鈥淚 like the fun we have.鈥
鈥淵ou鈥檙e crazy. 聽She鈥檚 everything you look for in someone,鈥 she insisted, giving him an exasperated look.
鈥淛ust drop it, Marinette,鈥 he snapped. 聽He wasn鈥檛 happy with the conversation and he wasn鈥檛 even sure why, which was even more frustrating because he always knew what was going on. 聽鈥淚 don鈥檛 want to talk about it.鈥
鈥淔ine, but she gave you her number. 聽You should use it,鈥 she argued, turning back in the direction they were walking.
鈥淚 don鈥檛 want her number, I want yours,鈥 he yelled exasperated, then froze. 聽He wanted her number? 聽He did? When did that happen? 聽That was unexpected. 聽He was not prepared for this conversation. 聽He needed to figure out what he meant by that before she demanded he explain it to her. 聽Maybe they could pretend it never happened. 聽What was the likelihood she would just let this go and not discuss it? He groaned internally, damned unlikely is what it was. 聽She was going to want to discuss this. 聽He would have to think of a way to distract her.
鈥淒on鈥檛 be ridiculous, you have my number鈥 she said, waving him off and continuing to walk.
He stared at her back as she walked away. 聽His mouth dropped open in shock. 聽What the hell? 聽How could she miss that? 聽Why would she want to ignore that? 聽鈥淚 meant I want to date you, not her,鈥 he called after her. 聽Well, fuck. 聽This was not the conversation he meant to have.
She paused midstep ahead of him and turned around slowly, wide eyed and mouth parted in surprise. 聽鈥淲hat?鈥 聽
She couldn鈥檛 really be that surprised could she? 聽She had to have known. 聽She had to have known how he felt, what their relationship was building up to. 聽He might be an oblivious idiot but she wasn鈥檛. 聽They were together constantly鈥 maybe not as much lately, but until the last month or so they鈥檇 been inseparable almost since they met. 聽They hung out together, they ate together, they plotted and researched together, they laughed together, and on occasion, napped together.
鈥淲hen did that happen? 聽I mean鈥 I鈥 Since when?鈥 she stuttered, the surprise in her eyes turning to confusion.
That was a fair question. 聽One he didn鈥檛 have the answer to. 聽When did he start feeling this way? 聽Maybe it was the distance over the past month that made him realize he wanted her, that he missed her when she wasn鈥檛 there. 聽That he needed her. 聽She brought him back from the edge. 聽She made his life brighter. 聽She made him smile when she was near him. 聽He missed her touch. 聽He missed feeling her. 聽He missed the way he felt when she was near. 聽He didn鈥檛 know when it started, he just knew it was. 聽鈥淣ow?鈥
She rolled her eyes. 聽鈥淪ure, Tim.鈥 聽She turned around and kept walking. 聽
His brow furrowed involuntarily. 聽That was鈥 unexpected. 聽He was prepared for horror. 聽He was prepared for annoyance. 聽A small part of him was even prepared for excitement. 聽What he wasn鈥檛 prepared for was avoidance.
鈥淗ey! 聽What do you mean 鈥楽ure, Tim鈥?鈥 He moved to get in front of her. 聽He sure as hell didn鈥檛 mean to start this conversation, but it had started. 聽They were having it.
鈥淚 mean whatever, Tim. 聽Funny. 聽Come on, we鈥檙e going to be late,鈥 her voice was suddenly tired.
鈥淚 just confessed I like you and that鈥檚 all you have to say?鈥 He could see the disbelief radiating from her. 聽She didn鈥檛 believe anything he was saying. 聽Why didn鈥檛 she believe him? 聽鈥淚 wasn鈥檛 joking.鈥
鈥淪ure you weren鈥檛. 聽You suddenly decided after another girl flirted with you that actually you wanted me flirting with you. 聽After not being remotely interested in me that way up until this exact moment.鈥
Well when she put it that way, it sounded stupid. But it was stupid. 聽He was stupid. 聽He hadn鈥檛 realized he liked her until now. 聽And someone else flirting with him was exactly what made him realize it. 鈥淵es?鈥
She rolled her eyes and turned away to keep walking, her shoulders slumped slightly as she walked. 聽鈥淚鈥檓 not doing this today. 聽I鈥檓 not in the mood to play pretend.鈥
鈥淏ut you鈥檙e ready to pretend this never happened? That I never confessed?鈥 he questioned, slightly more hostilely than he intended.
She turned back to face him, a dangerous look in her eyes. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 have to pretend for that. But I am willing to pretend you didn鈥檛 just say something like that just to mess with me.鈥 聽She took a deep breath and fixed him with a hard stare. 聽鈥淕od, read the fucking room, Tim. 聽This isn鈥檛 funny and it never was,鈥 she growled.
鈥淚鈥檓 not just messing with you,鈥 he was close to yelling. 聽Why was it so hard for her to believe he meant it? 聽鈥淪he was flirting with me and you were just鈥 okay with it. 聽You were encouraging it and I didn鈥檛 like it. 聽I didn鈥檛 like that you didn鈥檛 care. 聽And yeah, I鈥檓 sorry. 聽I鈥檓 stupid because I didn鈥檛 realize. 聽I didn鈥檛 realize that鈥檚 how I felt. 聽I didn鈥檛 like that it wasn鈥檛 you flirting with me. 聽I wanted it to be you.鈥
鈥淚t was me,鈥 she yelled back at him. 聽鈥淚t was me flirting with you. 聽For months. 聽You never reciprocated or even noticed. 聽Now? Now you鈥檙e interested? 聽After I finally stopped? 聽After I tried to move on and just support you like a normal friend would?鈥
Tim subconsciously rubbed his chin. 聽That explained why Jason had seemed so intent on landing his punches in their spars the last few weeks. 聽God, Jason figured it out before he did. 聽鈥淵ou鈥 you never said鈥︹
鈥淔uck you. 聽I said,鈥 she seethed, poking her finger into his chest. 聽鈥淚 said it in a million ways. 聽You can decipher that someone is planning an attack from the way a finger twitches and you couldn鈥檛 figure out I liked you when I was laying in your lap? 聽It was embarrassing. 聽It was pathetic. 聽And you never noticed. 聽And I have to believe the only reason for it is because you. 聽Didn鈥檛. 聽Want. To.鈥
鈥淣o! 聽No that鈥檚 not鈥 You said you were just comfortable there,鈥 he objected, cringing as the words came out of his mouth. 聽God he was stupid. 聽
鈥淚 told you I needed you and you told me to 鈥榝inish the sentence. 聽I鈥檓 not a mind reader, that鈥檚 Alfred.鈥欌 She continued in a mocking impersonation of his voice.
Oh God鈥 he had said that. 聽He remembered that interaction perfectly. 聽He had thought she just needed to sleep. 聽She had been up on a design spree for more than a day and hadn鈥檛 been getting good sleep for the week before that either. 聽It never occurred to him鈥 鈥淚t wasn鈥檛 because I didn鈥檛 want to, it鈥檚 because I鈥檓 an idiot.鈥 聽
Marinette scoffed, which he supposed was a better reaction than yelling again. 聽鈥淵ou鈥檙e a fucking genius, Timmy. 聽Literally a fucking genius.鈥
鈥淏ut that鈥檚鈥 that鈥檚 not emotions. 聽I would never think鈥 you could have anyone. 聽Literally anyone. 聽Why me?鈥 His face was scrunched up in confusion and his voice desperate like none of this made sense to him and for the first time he couldn鈥檛 see what was happening or why.
鈥淚鈥︹ she opened and closed her mouth a few times. 鈥淲hat?鈥 聽She blinked at him a few times. 聽鈥淣o. 聽I meant what I said. 聽I can鈥檛 do this right now. 聽Get over whatever tantrum this is you鈥檙e throwing and I鈥檒l see you later.鈥 聽She stalked away, throwing her barely touched espresso in the trash as she walked, no longer having the stomach for it. 聽
He watched as she left, uncertain how to proceed now, how to save this, because now that he鈥檇 realized, now that he knew, he couldn鈥檛 pretend he didn鈥檛. 聽Now that he finally knew what that feeling that came up every time he thought about her was, he couldn鈥檛 ignore it. And he couldn鈥檛 let it slip through his fingers just as he was realizing it. 聽She had put herself out there so many times, he would have to do the same if he wanted to show her how serious he was. 聽
He was going to have to do something huge to get her to understand this wasn鈥檛 just a passing fancy. 聽He loved her. 聽It developed so slowly, he almost missed it. 聽Not almost. 聽He had missed it. 聽But now that he thought about it, he did. 聽He loved her. 聽He loved everything about her. 聽He loved her passion. 聽He loved her compassion. 聽He loved her spark, her sass, her wit. 聽He loved her smile and the way her eyes shined when she spoke about the thinks she loved. 聽He loved her and he was going to win her back.
<><><><><>聽
Marinette pushed back from her sewing machine, stretching her back out after her hours long design session she had forced herself into rather than thinking about her earlier interaction with Tim. 聽She wasn鈥檛 sure how she wanted to proceed from here but she wasn鈥檛 proud of the way she had reacted. 聽On the one hand, she still loved him and he just realized he loved her too鈥 so what was the problem? 聽On the other hand, what the fuck was that timing!
She furrowed her brows at the sound of water hitting outside. 聽It hadn鈥檛 been raining when she鈥檇 started sewing. 聽And it hadn鈥檛 been in the forecast鈥 聽She walked over to her balcony to investigate and screeched at the unexpected sight of someone standing right outside her balcony door. 聽Her jaw dropped when she took a second, calmer look. Tim was standing on her balcony looking forlorn, his black hair plastered to his forehead and his hand reaching out to gently touch the door鈥檚 glass.
Her heart stuttered in her chest seeing him on her balcony. 聽How long had he been standing there! 聽It looked like it was pouring out. 聽Her body jerked with the realization. 聽He needed to come inside before he got sick! 聽She rushed to open the door for him, but paused a few feet from the door. 聽She quirked her head to the side and narrowed her eyes. 聽That rain was awfully鈥 centralized. 聽She looked down and shook her head, refusing to let him see her smile so quickly. 聽
She took a deep breath and let it out slowly. 聽鈥淔uck off, Kon,鈥 she mumbled to the floor.
鈥淵es, ma鈥檃m,鈥 she heard yelled from somewhere in the sky as the 鈥榬ain鈥 immediately ended. 聽She waited a few seconds for Kon to get far enough away with whatever contraption he had created to cause the rain effect, before she opened the door for Tim.
She finally met his eyes with a soft gaze. 聽She puckered her lips to keep from smiling. 聽鈥淩eally? 聽Like some kind of Nicholas Sparks novel?鈥 she said in mock exasperation.
Tim gave her a hesitant smile. 聽Teasing. 聽Teasing he could do. 聽Teasing was normal for them. 聽鈥淐ome on, give me some credit,鈥 he scoffed. 聽鈥淢ore John Hughes movie than anything else.鈥
She let out a breath of relief and cocked her hip. 聽鈥淛ohn Hughes, huh?鈥
鈥淭hey鈥檙e good movies, Mari,鈥 he nodded, his face set in mock seriousness. 聽He started to take a step into her apartment but stopped, slowly setting his foot back down where it had been.
Marinette shook her head and grabbed his shirt, pulling him into the apartment and close enough to her he could easily caress her face or run his hands through her hair or set his hands on her hips, all of which he desperately wanted to do. 聽鈥淵ou鈥檙e a dork.鈥
鈥淵eah,鈥 he nodded in agreement. 聽His voice was quiet, afraid to break the comfortable feeling they had created. 聽鈥淚鈥檓 a dork and an idiot and undeserving and unworthy and sorry. 聽So very sorry.鈥
Marinette shook her head and looked down. 聽鈥淵ou didn鈥檛 do anything wrong,鈥 she whispered. When she looked back up, he saw the tears that had escaped and started rolling down her face.
He reached out to wipe away the tears, moving closer until they were almost flush against each other. 聽鈥淏ut more than anything, I鈥檓 in love,鈥 he cupped her face, letting his thumbs gently stroke her cheeks, 鈥渁nd praying I didn鈥檛 realize it too late. Please tell me I didn鈥檛 mess this up, Marinette, because I do. 聽I love you. I love your heart. 聽I love your determination. 聽I love your intelligence. 聽I love your kindness. 聽I love your creativity. 聽I love the way you make me feel when I鈥檓 with you. 聽I love the way you make me feel like I鈥檓 enough and want to be better at the same time. 聽I love you. But if I took too long, if you don鈥檛 want that anymore, I can鈥 I鈥檒l back off. 聽Whatever you want.鈥
Marinette stared at him for a few moments, her face went blank until more tears started falling. 聽Tim sucked in a sharp breath. 聽His heart started pounding in realization. 聽She had moved on. 聽She didn鈥檛 want this. 聽He leaned back to pull his hands away from her so she didn鈥檛 feel like he was forcing himself on her, but before his hands had even left her face she surged forward, wrapping her arms around his neck and pulling him down to meet her lips.
Suddenly she stopped and pulled away, looking at him with wide eyes. 聽鈥淪orry! Sorry. 聽I should have asked first. 聽That was just so beautiful鈥 but I shouldn鈥檛 have鈥︹ 聽The rest of her sentence was swallowed up by his lips. 聽He moved his hands to cradle her head as he kissed her. 聽Her arms tightened around his neck when he moved his head slightly to deepen the kiss, pulling him even closer.
After a few minutes they pulled away incrementally, just enough to catch their breath. 聽Their eyes met and Marinette began giggling, overwhelmed by all the emotions she鈥檇 gone through that day. 聽Tim soon joined in, pulling her close again in a tight hug. 聽鈥淭hank God,鈥 he whispered into her hair. 聽鈥淚 was so scared.鈥
Marinette nodded into his chest. 聽鈥淢e too.鈥 聽She pulled away and looked up at him with a sweet smile. 聽鈥淲ant to dry off and watch a movie?鈥
He looked at her hesitantly. 聽鈥淐an I鈥 can we鈥︹ 聽He took a breath to focus himself. 聽鈥淚 don鈥檛 want to stop holding you yet.鈥
Marinette grinned brightly. 聽鈥淚 think cuddling during the movie can be arranged.鈥 聽Tim grinned back and pulled her into another kiss. 鈥淭hat sounds wonderful,鈥 he whispered into her lips.

Giving Us Doomsday
Tumblr media
Lily stands in the doorway. Harry is cradled against her chest, and her hand on his back rises and falls with each breath that he takes. He鈥檚 six months old today, she thinks. There鈥檚 a solidity to him nowadays that wasn鈥檛 there before; when he was first born and in those early, new months, he was like a little bird. Fragile, cooing, delicate little thing. Now there鈥檚 fat on his thighs and his chubby little cheeks, and he looks at her with more curiosity and determination than fear in his emerald green eyes.
They鈥檙e at Remus鈥 cottage, and the dark Derbyshire countryside beyond the windows is putting the hairs up on the back of Lily鈥檚 neck. She doesn鈥檛 understand how Remus can live out here. It feels so exposed, out here on this moorland with nothing but the moon and the wind for company. Perhaps that鈥檚 why Remus likes it, she muses. When the boys can鈥檛 join him for the full moon, at least he knows there鈥檚 no one else around. He chooses loneliness for all the other days of the month in exchange for security on one.
It feels bizarre to be celebrating. What is there for them to celebrate when the war is all but lost? They鈥檙e hanging on by a thread, this scrawny, emaciated remains of an Order. There鈥檇 been more of them at the start. So many more. And yet, here they are, the tenacious remnants of the organisation, pouring champagne into flutes and clinking the glass together, and heralding in another year. 1981. Lily wonders what the year will hold. She hopes it will be better than the last. She鈥檚 always hopeful.

鈥淕ently 鈥 almost tenderly 鈥 he propped it up against the Goddess statue. It seemed like a perfect fit, with how small she was; the right side of her body was covered nearly completely by it. It made her look almost fierce despite her kind expression; like she was warding off an incoming attack. After a moment of deliberation, Link picked his grandfather鈥檚 sword back up and leaned it against the statuette鈥檚 left arm, withdrawing his hands carefully and slowly.鈥
Today is @timeturner-jay鈥嬧榮 birthday so I made a little illustration of one of my favourite scenes from her fic 鈥淣ew Hands on Ancient Hilts鈥. If you like LU Four or just LoZ lore in general, this is a must read for you.
As for the art, it鈥檚 a mix of watercolour and oil pastels. At first, my goal was to achieve a kid鈥檚 book look, but I got caught up in the details for that :鈥橠 but it鈥檚 okay, I鈥檓 happy with the end result and more than glad with the reaction I got.
Happy birthday, Jay! I love you so much!馃挍馃ズ

here on ao3
Devi to Paxton: Pls come over and distract me, things are shitty today
It had been a week since the dance. A week since Kamala ran away from her engagement dinner and still hadn鈥檛 come back. Her grandmother and her mom were bickering. A stray cat got into the house, bringing a live bird in it鈥檚 mouth which caused the entire living room to be torn apart by the three women trying to catch the cat and bird and remove them. In the process a family photo was ripped to shreds by the cat. They had another copy of the photo, in a box in the garage, but both Devi and her mom were on edge after seeing Mohan鈥檚 photographic face ripped through like Wolverine got into it.
Devi opened the door to her room and checked the sounds of the house. It was 11pm and she could hear her grandmother snoring and saw the lights all through the house were turned off. The door to her mother鈥檚 room was closed and no light coming from under the door so if he came over, chances they鈥檇 be caught were low.
By the time she pulled her door closed gently, and locked it, she saw Paxton opening the window.
鈥淛esus,鈥 she said, surprised to see him so soon. 鈥淒id you fly here or what?鈥
He smiled and pulled her into his arms before he even answered, kissing her forehead before sitting on the edge of her bed and guiding her to sit next to him.
鈥淚 was already on my way when you texted, I was a little worried since I hadn鈥檛 heard from you since this morning.鈥
鈥淵ou were already coming? Because you hadn鈥檛 heard from me?鈥 Devi gulped. That seemed like something a person would do when they cared. It was still startling at times to know that he cared. But she hated to let that out so she fell back on a joke. 鈥淪talker.鈥
鈥淵eah, okay, I鈥檒l just go then, see ya.鈥 He started to stand up but Devi tugged on his arm to get him to sit back down, putting her legs over his lap so he couldn鈥檛 get up. She was wearing an oversized shirt to bed, she should have put on some pajama pants. All the making out they鈥檇 done like this was strictly over clothes type of situation. But her legs were uncovered and Paxton rested his hand over her knees, his fingers brushing the bare side of her thigh. He didn鈥檛 say anything for a second, the smile still on his face from teasing her seconds before, but he kept his attention on the bare skin of her legs and let his fingers slide along her thigh. Devi gulped because he seemed to understand this was different than most nights and she wasn鈥檛 sure what that meant. 鈥淪o what鈥檚 up? Why was today shitty?鈥 he asked but he was still watching his hand move across her thigh.
Devi couldn鈥檛 think of what happened today because the pads of his fingers running over her thigh were distracting. Was he feeling all that bumpy cellulite she could see when she looked in the mirror, did he notice that she鈥檇 missed a spot shaving last night? Did he like her legs? Because she liked the way he was touching them.
Her silence got him to look up at her and away from her legs, but his fingers stayed, moving back and forth. Devi tried to focus. Something about the way he looked at her had her forgetting her name.
鈥淚t wasn鈥檛 like...a certain event.鈥 She could get some words out, this was good, she did it. 鈥淛ust a lot of little shitty things.鈥
鈥淔air, I get those kinda days too,鈥 he said, leaning closer to her. 鈥淪o my job here is not to talk but to distract?鈥
Paxton鈥檚 lips parted, he gripped her thigh now, not hard, just enough that Devi noticed the shift in pressure and gasped. She nodded before closing the gap between them, kissing him hard. Teeth bumping, noses in the way, but she was distracted and he was smiling against her.
Devi was a fan of kissing. It could be sloppy or rushed or hard or fast or slow and tidy and gentle but she liked it all. She especially liked it when Paxton sighed or smiled against the kiss. It was the validation she needed in this new skill she was acquiring. He liked kissing her and she liked kissing him and she was sure if she was to be graded by Paxton, he would definitely have given her an A. She鈥檇 give him one right back, maybe an A+ but she didn鈥檛 want to seem thirsty.
Not that kissing along his jaw and up to his ear while he slid his fingers further up and inward didn鈥檛 feel thirsty. Whatever he was doing, she wanted him to be doing it closer and faster. It felt like his fingers were matches, lighting a slow flame across her skin. Devi leaned back so she was lying on her bed, he followed her, his lips finding hers again, slipping his tongue into her mouth, she responded in kind, and he groaned. Her hand held his cheek softly until she felt his fingers reach the seam of her panties. She tried to cover her shocked gasp but he immediately stopped and looked at her concerned.
鈥淵ou okay?鈥 he asked, pulling back so he could look at her. She nodded, feeling silly.
鈥淵eah, you鈥檝e just never done that before,鈥 she explained. 鈥淏ut I鈥檓 a fan. Loved it. Please keep doing it.鈥
He gave her a half smile, it was goofy, like he couldn鈥檛 believe his luck. But he kissed her again, his hand moving up to the bare skin at her waist. That鈥檚 not what she wanted and she considered saying something but sometimes her brain and her mouth didn鈥檛 connect well.
鈥淎re we about to fuck?鈥 she asked, then cringed. That was not sexy. That was embarrassing.
Paxton scoffed, a sort of laugh and scoff before he kissed the tip of her nose. 鈥淣ot tonight, Devi.鈥 Devi鈥檚 chest felt tight. 鈥淲hy not?鈥
鈥淏ecause I鈥檓 not ready to yet,鈥 he said, but Devi didn鈥檛 know if she believed him.
鈥淥kay but so we鈥檙e clear, I am, whenever you鈥檙e ready, whenever you鈥檝e got a minute, I鈥檓 about it.鈥 She was sure that people said you should discuss what you want and she wanted to be fucking railed by her hot as hell boyfriend that she liked very much.
鈥淕ot it,鈥 he said, resting on his elbow, on his side, next to her. His free hand was still under her shirt, at her waist, above her panties but he started to move down. His fingers slid down the side of her panties where his hand rested comfortably, just under her pantyline.
The anticipation of his hand just sitting there had Devi focusing on her breathing, trying not to say something stupid again, trying not to beg him to move, trying to keep her head. She bit her lip and he leaned in and kissed her again. He put his teeth around her bottom lip, nipping himself there, Devi鈥檚 tongue moved against his lips as he did it, she was trying to keep concentrated on his lips because his hand still wasn鈥檛 moving and Devi could feel herself getting wet. That鈥檚 good right? That鈥檚 the reaction you鈥檙e supposed to have? Feels good. That鈥檚 good, she thought to herself. Paxton鈥檚 pointer finger crept up to her pantyline, he moved it back and forth two, three, four times before he slipped it under the seam of her panties, immediately sliding it along and tracing the seam around her leg, slowly, from the middle of her thigh, all the way around her ass, and backtracking to the front of her leg. His other fingers obviously tracing a similar path but on her bare skin, only the pointer was the brave one. He did that for a while and Devi couldn鈥檛 figure out what she was hoping he鈥檇 do after. He was so close and it wasn鈥檛 until she clenched that she realized what she wanted.
He was kissing her, softly, his lips wandering to the corner of her mouth, along her jaw, down her neck, all while his pointer finger took a couple of trips around the seam of her panties of her left leg. Was she going crazy? A second finger, the middle, joined in the laps around her leg and she almost laughed with relief, something new to focus on.
鈥淪till good?鈥 he asked, 鈥淭his works best if I go slow.鈥 Devi closed her eyes and sighed. 鈥淵eah, I could stand for whatever you鈥檙e doing to go faster but I trust you.鈥
鈥淵ou don鈥檛 know what I鈥檓 doing?鈥 he asked, with a lilt to his voice. 鈥淗ave you never done this to yourself?鈥
She felt him push her panties to the side and slip his two fingers into her folds. Devi gasped again and closed her eyes. His fingers were circling, high and low, like an oval and when they reached the top of that track Devi鈥檚 breath hitched. Paxton kissed her cheek, then her lips, just little pecks, as his fingers picked up the pace. Her breathing followed, to the point where she could barely remember to kiss him back. 鈥淵ou gotta-鈥 Devi could鈥檚 eyes were closed, her heart felt like it might explode, her throat was dry from breathing like she was, but she needed something else. 鈥淲hat?鈥 Paxton slowed down and Devi shook her head. 鈥淒on鈥檛 you dare stop,鈥 she demanded and heard Paxton chuckle like he was proud of himself.
鈥淪o more of this is fine?鈥 When she nodded, he slid a finger inside of her, his hand turning over and his thumb softly pressing into her clit. Devi cried out before quickly covering her mouth. Waking up the whole house in this position was sure to get them both murdered and buried in the backyard.
She followed his rhythm, lifting her hips up to get even closer so he added the second finger and Devi couldn鈥檛 help the moan that escaped her. Even Paxton had abandoned kissing her now, and was just letting his free hand outline her chin. He was watching her intently, a small smile blooming every fourth or fifth stroke when his thumb put more pressure on her clit and Devi whimpered. He moved a stray lock of hair off her forehead and kissed her hairline as she bucked against him, her toes curling, her muscles tightening, and stars exploding behind her eyelids.
Devi shuddered as Paxton slipped his fingers out of her and leaned in, kissing her lips again and discreetly wiping his hand on his pants. Devi felt like melted jello. Or pudding. A shiver would run through her every 15 seconds or so and she鈥檇 clench again, coming off the high.
She tried to say something but all that came out of her mouth was a jumble of sounds that could not be interpreted as words by even the best of linguists. Paxton laughed warmly. 鈥淢aking you speechless, I can鈥檛 pretend I鈥檓 not loving this. Does that mean it was good?鈥
Devi hummed something, still unable to form words.
鈥淣ever had a girl clench around my hand like that,鈥 he admitted, a blush on his cheeks. 鈥淭hat was so hot.鈥
As she started to come back to herself, she took in what he said. 鈥淥h, what can I do for you? Because yeah that was very good. Big fan. 10/10 would recommend.鈥
Paxton smiled and kissed her clothed shoulder. 鈥淚鈥檓 good. I鈥檒l take care of me when I get home. You gave me some excellent material.鈥
鈥淚 did?鈥 she asked, still unsure if she should be embarrassed or beaming. She couldn鈥檛 see herself but it felt like beaming was winning.
鈥淵eah,鈥 he said as she shuddered again. 鈥淏ut you鈥檝e done that before right? Like yourself?鈥
Now she knew she should be embarrassed. The way he said it made it sound like she was a weirdo for not. She scrunched up her nose and shook her head, looking away.
鈥淗ow do you get yourself off?鈥 he asked, more shock than teasing and that made her feel slightly better.
鈥淚...haven鈥檛 really鈥︹ Devi reached above her head and pulled a large pillow down. 鈥淭his guy and I have tried but we鈥檝e been unsuccessful.鈥 She hated to admit it but she couldn鈥檛 stop herself from it either. She put the pillow under her head now and Paxton put his head on the other side.
鈥淣o way.鈥 He was surprised. 鈥淣o wonder you had the courage to ask a total stranger to fuck you. You鈥檙e wound too tight.鈥
She closed her eyes again, bringing a hand up to cover her face. 鈥淧lease don鈥檛 bring that up.鈥
鈥淏ut you were so cute, shaking my hand like it was some kind of business decision.鈥 He moved her hand off her face so he could kiss her lips.
鈥淥h god,鈥 she said when he pulled back. 鈥淚 was so desperate and weird!鈥
鈥淵eah, 鈥榗ause you weren鈥檛 getting off, it all makes perfect sense now.鈥 He smiled, wide, warm, like he really cared about her.
鈥淪o if I had led with that, you鈥檇 have had sex with me?鈥 Devi asked, turning on her side and putting a leg over his, scooting closer to him.
鈥淚 said yes, it wasn鈥檛 until later that I realized we should not have sex.鈥 He put his hand on her thigh again but it wasn鈥檛 so distracting this time.
鈥淏ecause it got weird,鈥 Devi filled in. 鈥淵eah, because it would be weird to have sex with somebody I kinda liked.鈥 鈥淚sn鈥檛 the point to have sex with people you like?鈥 Devi teased. 鈥淩ight, but I didn鈥檛 like鈥.understand you yet. And I wanted to figure you out. If we had sex, I assumed you鈥檇 peace out and go back to the nerds and I鈥檇 be left thinking about the girl who confused me.鈥
鈥淵ou thought I was gonna ditch you?鈥 Devi asked, surprised. 鈥淎nd you didn鈥檛 want me to?鈥
He shrugged. 鈥淚 guess we鈥檙e sharing all kinds of embarrassing secrets tonight.鈥
鈥淚 don鈥檛 think we are. That鈥檚 just you.鈥 Devi shook her head.
鈥淭wo minutes ago I found out I was the first person to get you off including yourself but you鈥檙e right that鈥檚 not embarrassing that鈥檚 just sad. Thank god I鈥檓 here to take care of this.鈥 He squeezed her thigh and then smacked it playfully for good measure.
鈥淪hut up!鈥 she whined.
鈥淎lright, I won鈥檛 get you off again and I won鈥檛 show you again so you can do it yourself, essentially rendering my services useless.鈥
鈥淪ir, you are still obligated in many ways. The position of boyfriend has a lengthy list of duties.鈥
鈥淥kay but I can teach you how to do that because that will be sexy and fun for me and I think you, too,鈥 he offered.
Devi rolled her eyes. 鈥淭he student has become the teacher, hm?鈥
鈥淵ep.鈥 Paxton moved his hand from her thigh up to her cheek, his thumb running back and forth across her chin. He was looking at her lips and she couldn鈥檛 help but smile. The way he did that made her stomach flip. His thumb moved up and across her lips and Devi stuck her tongue out to catch it. 鈥淪orry, I was going to have some snappy comeback about you being a good student but all I can think about is hoping that this day isn鈥檛 shitty anymore. Did I help?鈥
Devi pressed her lips to his, smiling. 鈥淵eah. Much better.鈥

聽 聽Remus tried his best to slow his frantic heart and keep his breathing even so as not to disturb the beautiful boy asleep on top of him, but inside, he was panicking.
Last night鈥 Last night everything had changed for him. After years, years, of dancing around, hiding how they truly felt, pretending not to be dying inside as they watched each other settle for love with other people- they had finally stripped off their masks and laid themselves bare; naked and vulnerable in every way possible. It might have involved some liquid courage and minor meddling from their friends, but by the end of the night, they didn鈥檛 care how they had got there, just that they were there, at last. 聽
Remus surreptitiously glanced around his bedroom, taking in the clothes strewn about the floor; the books knocked over on his desk from when Sirius had pushed him up against it; the comforter hastily kicked to the bottom of the bed; the empty glass of water on his side table that he had reluctantly dragged himself away from Sirius to get for them, before they had fallen asleep tangled together. Other than the evidence of their passionate night, everything else looked the same, which was unsettling for Remus since he didn鈥檛 feel the same. His eyes landed on the cluster of photographs on his wall, specifically the ones of him and Sirius, where he could see the hope and love and pain in his own face simply from being near the person he so desperately wanted but didn鈥檛 have. 聽 聽
If only he could tell his younger self to be patient, that he would get his chance when the time came, and damn if it wouldn鈥檛 be worth the wait. He looked up at the textured ceiling of his flat, a smile tugging at his lips as he recalled all the words and kisses and moans and laughter they had exchanged the night before, all in the name of love.
Though, when he had woken that morning, he hadn鈥檛 felt the joy or relief he always dreamt he would; he had panicked, and now, as he glanced down at the inky head of hair spread across his chest, he felt the same fears percolate inside him again. He was terrified that the moment the sunlight hit them, the spell would be broken. Everything was okay in the dark; everything was intoxicating, almost magical, as if the darkness protected you with a cloak of shadow and passion. But in the light鈥 Every part of you could be seen, exposed. Morning sheds a new perspective on the night before, and Remus desperately didn鈥檛 want for Sirius to wake up with a new perspective.
Remus was snapped out of his thoughts as Sirius began to stir, the arm around him tightening as Sirius stretched and contracted his muscles. Remus inhaled deeply as the other boy slowly turned his head, dragging his nose and mouth lazily along Remus鈥 stomach, then propped his chin up to look at Remus.
鈥淗i,鈥 Sirius breathed with half-lidded eyes and a sleepy smile that made Remus鈥 heart stop for so long he felt light-headed.
鈥淗i,鈥 Remus replied in a small voice, only exhaling what little air he needed for that single word.
Sirius chuckled. 鈥淲hat is it?鈥
鈥淣othing.鈥
鈥淲hat鈥檚 wrong?鈥
鈥淣othing鈥檚 wrong.鈥
Sirius twisted and pulled himself over so that he was laying fully on top of Remus, the lower halves of their bodies pressed together, and placed both hands on Remus鈥 chest so he could rest his chin on them. The fact that they were still stark naked was decidedly not helpful for Remus to keep a level head.
鈥淚 thought we were long past secrets now, Moony,鈥 Sirius smirked with a slow wink, 鈥淟ong past.鈥
The rest of the air in Remus鈥 lungs rushed out all at once as heat filled his cheeks and neck. 鈥淓r-鈥 He stammered, feeling embarrassed, which made no sense considering how vulnerable they had been with each other the night before. 鈥淚 just thought maybe you鈥 That you might not...鈥
Sirius shifted, planting his hands on either side of Remus鈥 chest and pushing himself up so he loomed over Remus. Remus swallowed, suddenly aware of how dry his throat was.
鈥淲hat? You thought I might regret last night?鈥 Sirius said in a voice as sweet and thick as honey, lowering himself once more so he could plant kisses on Remus鈥 sternum, 鈥淵ou actually thought it was possible that I wouldn鈥檛 wake up deliriously happy?鈥
Remus couldn鈥檛 breathe. There seemed to be some sort of warm bubble around his heart, expanding and growing until it left no room for his lungs to fill up. When he didn鈥檛 reply, Sirius shot him a disapproving glare, accompanied by a very unnecessary (in Remus鈥 opinion) tsk noise.
鈥淒o you not realize how adorable you look in the morning?鈥 Sirius continued, feigning exasperation. He nipped at Remus鈥 collarbone, pulling a small groan from the boy currently pinned underneath him, 鈥淓specially this morning,鈥
Sirius鈥 mouth was now trailing a wet line up Remus鈥 neck, leaving goosebumps in its wake, which was at odds with how warm Remus felt all over. He could feel the words Sirius spoke as his lips brushed his skin. 鈥淵ou look thoroughly-debauched,鈥 Sirius murmured, 鈥淎nd you should know that I am very much in favour of making sure you look like this every morning.鈥
His lips finally found Remus鈥 and Remus was utterly powerless against them. They kissed deeply, Remus opening up as he accepted the truth of how happy Sirius was, and the inevitability of Sirius getting exactly what he wanted- and that what he wanted was Remus. Remus certainly had no complaints. Sirius started to lean back, presumably to continue speaking, but Remus made a noise of protest and surged upwards to find his lips again, not wanting the kiss to end. Sirius laughed into his mouth, then let Remus turn them over, settling back into the pillows. Remus heard a content sigh and leaned away, bracing himself on his elbows.
He took in Sirius鈥 bright grey eyes, kiss-swollen lips, and his fanned-out, shoulder-length hair that was more tangled and wild than Remus had ever seen it before. 聽鈥淚 look thoroughly-debauched?鈥 He said with a lopsided smile, 鈥淵ou haven鈥檛 even seen your hair yet.鈥
Sirius smiled and caught his bottom lip between his teeth. 鈥淚 take it you鈥檙e not having any more regrets, Moony-mine?鈥
鈥淥nly that we can鈥檛 stay like this forever,鈥 Remus said in a soft voice, melting at the nickname.
鈥淲ho says we can鈥檛?鈥 Sirius whispered, one hand stroking the length of Remus鈥 spine, the other tracing his eyebrow and jawline, then tugging Remus鈥 chin down to press their lips together again. Remus took a moment to appreciate how brilliant Sirius鈥 mind was in the mornings.
The sun broke through Remus鈥 curtains, spilling slants of warm light on their bodies, and he cracked an eye open, only to find Sirius鈥 grey ones gazing back. This close, he could see the waves of blue and flecks of silver in them, and knew Sirius was staring just as intently, taking in everything that looked brand new in the morning light and their dawning love. He rested his forehead against Sirius鈥, feeling less uneasy with every breath they shared, and more comfortable, safe, and at home.
鈥淵ou鈥檙e beautiful.鈥
He wasn鈥檛 even sure which one of them said it, but he knew it was true, and he thought that maybe there wasn鈥檛 anything to be afraid of in the morning after all. 聽
鈥淲e are beautiful.鈥
