Fog Grey: 3. flash of lightning
Supplies and Styles: N/A
Word Count: ~1,250
Warnings: anxiety, electrocution, flashbacks.
Summary: Cillian is still adjusting to being in a safe place.
Notes I need to do some more work with the group that had raised Cillian. He was bread in captivity, meant to be an all purpose weapon and did not actually work as that. Instead, he learns how to break all kinds of magical and non-magical locks, wards, shields and all that stuff. He's very good at it actually, it's just that Carlene does not put him to work that way. Instead she cuddles him and makes him feel better when things like storms and flashbacks happen.

Story: This City's Got Grace
Colors: Darling Grey #10, "I was counting my losses, wasn’t sure if I should count you"; Halloween Orange #12, "Some little things get broken, and a little means a lot".
Supplies and Styles: N/A
Word Count: 526
Rating: PG
Warnings: Very roundaboutly refers to the aftermath of torture and horrible things, but doesn't go into details. (It's the angel trio, if you've read [profile] thebonesofferalletters' works in this verse.)
Notes: Not a warning but this is, uh. Not a happy story and not a... fair... one? In a lot of ways, to any of the three of them? Basically this is Bobby having a really bad day. I guess caregiver burnout is the best words I've got for it.

In which there is really unhappy nostalgia. )

Summary: Oliver just really loves his wife, okay?
Notes Oliver and his wife (who does not have a name yet) are another City pair. He's a low-level government official who just kind of wants to make change happen and also happens to be the kind of angel that believes in spreading information as widely as he can. His wife is a witch, who not only explained to him what he was but is also just a wonderful person. She is kind of one of my favrites but that may be Ollie having a huge bias towards her.
Also hey, I finished Spring Green!

Summary: The angels still know how to dance.
Notes It's Bobby, Shaun and Hel post everything. It's vague but it's definitely about those three and frankly, I'm just excited I wrote something tonight.

There's a building in Brooklyn that some angels like to dance in. )

Summary: She's not ready to go home.
Notes: New girls from Cityverse! I've ben meaning to write about the club kids but kind of forget they are a thing sometimes. The initial setup of this universe is very different than what it is now and honestly, there are so many people populating it that I forget who belongs here sometimes.

Warnings: Death of a spouse/loved one. Grief and all the stuff that comes with it.
Notes: I did not mean to end today on a sad note but this came into my head and I wanted to put it down. Amusingly enough, the stories this round came out in a linear fashion which is kind of cool.
Also, I knocked out TWO colors with this! Code Brown and Rose Pink.

They are in a quasi-Owner/pet relationship except that he is...actually a dog. Well, Cu Sidhe but he was raised a not very kind manner that warped him and his views on himself pretty badly. She is helping him patch himself together and it's all very happymaking.

Title: games you shouldn't play (never as simple as you think)

Supplies: N/A

Warnings: Threatening children? Not threatened children but the kind of kids who will fuck you up.
Word count; 354
Notes: So, the organization that broke Shaun and Hel also collects children and messes with them. Sometimes they take them when they're young and sometimes they force people to breed so they might have the offspring to manipulate. This s, essentially, a poem for some of the kids, both meant to be towards the people who captured them and anyone they are sent out to hurt.

Title: blood ringing in your ears

Colors: Code brown: I kept hoping some ghost of me would be here still.
Supplies: N/A
Rating: R
Warnings: Uhm...A lot. Lots of intimate violence, weird consent issues, bad ways of dealing with trauma, self harm in a couple of different ways. This is not a happy fic, guys.
Word count; 1488
Notes: The angels in this universe are not all this fucked up, I swear. Shaun and Hel went through a really shitty experience and trying to cope with that is hard. Also, angels heal differently in this verse, so he does get fixed up pretty easily. A few days rest is about all he needs from this encounter.
