sometimes i remember that i haven’t actually met my internet friends in real life and they live thousands of miles away. and that they actually have a house and a family and go to school or college and they do stuff and they exist not on the internet
i realise just how fragile our friendship is
like they could just get bored and never log on again and that would be it
different shades of diamonds (Sollux/Feferi, mention of Sollux/Aradia) - happy birthday from Tatterdemalionamberite
You’ve never felt like you understood how moirallegiance works. It’s traditional to get more worked up about the concupiscent quadrants - probably because of the lethal consequences to ignoring them - but at least those feelings are more comprehensible to you. The pale quadrant, on the other hand… you need that kind of pity, to give and to take; sometimes you need it like air; but you can never put your finger on whether you’re doing it right.
Aradia was your moirail, and Feferi is headed that way with you now, and she’s almost nothing like AA and so your pale entanglement with her is different too. Her skin against yours is cool instead of hot; the violence you soothe from her is like jagged barbs rather than blunt weapons.
But you recognize, still, something unmistakable in the way you go quiet when she touches your horns, like you’re watching yourself through a soft-focus lens. And you know it’s working; and you’ve seen it work both ways, seen FF’s earfins stop flaring and the way she breathes out softly when you divert her with some snarky remark.
You still don’t know how your hoofbeastshit manages to suffice as shooshing, but it does, and that’s enough for now.
Thank you, Tatterdemalionamberite! It was a lovely read. <3 You’re a very talented writer.

Well… I like pretty much anything with a Captor in it, and romance, comedy, or adventure themes are usually preferred… Thank you, for the offer I mean.
Happy birthday to me… first gifts of the day? Listening to the family argue, and feeling disappointed in life…
It’s like, 3 days until my birthday! *throws some confetti*
