UPDATE!!

May Demons Rest: Shinigami Sleeps (2017)
Chapter 13: Detoxing Nightmares

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

“Do I tie you to a bed frame or just hold on?”

He gives himself a shake, struggling to concentrate on what I’m saying. “Either. Bed frame is messier. Won’t make it to the toilet in time.”

“Holding on, it is.” I know I don’t imagine his look of relief. Jesus. Had he really thought I’d leave him to soil his britches when he’d mashed on my account in the first place? And why am I having such a damn hard time stopping myself from yelling at him over being surprised?

Chapter 12: Church Meeting

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

I wait until we’re on a solid safeline, out in the open with a comfortable buffer between us and the nearest pedestrians, to check something else kinda-sorta-maybe important, “Drege called us a pair. Called me your boss. You do know what that means around here, don’t you?”

He shrugs. “A guy who prefers to call the shots and be on top, I imagine.”

His tone is way too casual for him to have a clue. “Um... kind of, er…” Fuck. How to say this? And why the hell had I volunteered to explain?

Because I’m a moron, that’s why.

Chapter 11: Just Noise

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

Trowa firmly, almost roughly, caresses my back and shoulders as if trying to warm me. Jesus. He still hasn’t figured out that it’s a losing battle. Once Death has touched you, that’s it. You’re stone cold.

I twist, shove, squiggle. The world spins. My stomach lurches into my throat.

“Stop pushing me away,” he pleads on a murmur. “Pretend I’m someone else if you need to.”

What a moron. “I’m not gonna do that to you. Idiot.” It wouldn’t make a difference to Death, anyway. That bastard’s sight is twenty-twenty.

Chapter 10: Zipline

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

The shadows are moving.

Bodies in the darkness.

Quiet whispers.

“Fuck, the big one’s mashing.”

“Drop him. We need the skin.”

My legs are shaking, trembling with suppressed tension, but my head feels like it’s about to spin off of my shoulders. It’s only been six seconds. I don’t have two minutes. I can’t afford to wait.

Chapter 9: Sweet Dreams

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

I’m moving before I have a plan, before I even think it through. I grab his shoulder, turning him to face me, and I snarl, “Enough. Enough of this.”

He blinks at me, startled, stiff, braced for a fight. That’s the only reason I don’t shake him silly.

“I won’t make you tell me,” I rashly promise. “But if you’re determined to finish what you started in three and a half days, then give yourself to those days, damn it.”

His jaw clenches.

I inform him, “Continuing on this way is a waste, Duo. A waste of you.”

He stares at me with eyes that are wide and empty of anger. He looks so young. Lost. How do I make him understand that I’ve found him? How do I make that be enough?

Excellent news!

The second part of Graduation Day (the section I'm currently posting) is done (pending final edits) at 15,000 words.

The rough draft of the epilogue is also done.  It's at 8,000 words now but I expect it'll get a lot longer once I get in there and start cleaning things up.

I've been in a bit of a funk over this lately because it hurts to let go of a story and say goodbye.  I've dragged this out so long that I guess I was hoping it would be a gradual, painless separation.  Nope.  Not really.  Although, it's not as bad as when I wrote and finished R&R in under two weeks.  (God, that fic slammed into me and left me in tears for days once it was done.)

Writing.  A literal labor of love... and hate and tears and a fuck ton of bad language and talking to myself and... OK, gonna stop myself right there.  Gotta hold on to some of the mystery.  (^_~)

Chapter 8: A Night in an Attic

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

“Duo.”

“What?” I hiss.

“You’ve seen what Cathy’s like when she’s angry.”

“Yeah, so?”

“So, you’re going to have to try a lot harder than this to get me to back off.”

“Go the fuck to sleep.”

Now that "A Safe Good Place" has been posted, I'm switching back to MDR. Things are going to continue to be quite Heavy and Serious. Warnings are posted at the top of each chapter.

May Demons Rest: Shinigami Sleeps (2017)
Chapter 7: Laundry Day

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

Spreading his arms wide in a mocking gesture of good faith, Duo concludes, “Welcome to my home sweet home, Tro. Are you sure you wanna stay for the full tour?”

“Why are you here?”

“That’s none of your business.”

“If you leave with me, I’ll agree to that.”

“Fuck all, you’re stubborn.”

FINAL UPDATE!!

A Safe Good Place on AO3
Chapter 10: “The stars look especially lovely tonight.”

TEASER, Trowa POV:

“Is it done?”

“It’s done. I’m done. Ready whenever you are. Wherever you are.”

Living on the streets, singing for my supper beside Cathy, I’d thought I’d understood what it meant to be humbled. Watching my sister being swept off her feet by a preppy university student who had been passing by and stopped and stared and smiled kindly, I’d thought I’d known hope. I hadn’t. Not really. Duo humbled me with those few sentences. He filled my being with hope until I had to be shining with it.

“Duo, are you sure? Your brother… your friends?” I told myself to shut up, shut up, shut up!

There was a pause. “Well, if you don’t want me, I can probably hunt my buddy down, knock him out, and steal my car keys back.”
