Okay, so I went to the doctor a while back because I was having constant dizzy spells. Turned out I have diabetes. This is not a surprise, as nearly everyone in the family has/had it at some point. 
So I went to an endocrinologist to have some other tests done and get some medication to regulate my blood sugar. So far that's working just fine. But she gave me a certain test just to be safe, and it turns out that I actually have something called Cushing's Disease. This is apparently the cause for the diabetes, the weight trouble, and some other things. 
Therefore I'm getting an MRI tomorrow afternoon to determine if there is in fact a tumor in my brain (on the pituitary gland). If so, then I will probably have to have surgery to remove it. 
Needless to say, I am scared shitless. Mainly because I've never had any kind of surgery before in my life, and I'm really not happy about having some person poking around in my brain with a sharp object. 
The other problem is money. The security deposit for the MRI alone is $250. I do not have that kind of money, nor will I ever. So I'm essentially going to be broke for the next month and a half. 
Ugh. Just kill me now.

-------------------------------------


“Man, I’m exhausted,” you grumble to yourself as you leave work. With your bag slung carelessly over a slouched shoulder, you shuffle your way down the street and stop at a café to grab some form of liquid nourishment for the walk home.

While you’re standing in line, trying to decide which over-priced beverage you actually want, your phone goes off. You pull it out and glance at the screen- John’s texting you. Rolling your eyes and moving forward in the line, you check his message, just curious to know what the prankster is up to now.


Received 4:36 pm
hey (name) we’re all going out tonight to see dave’s new show, wanna come?



You stare blankly at your phone for a moment, thinking. It has been a really long time since you went out just for the sake of going out, and you’ve been way too stressed at work recently… Fuck it, you decide, and answer John’s message just as your turn to order comes up. “One large (drink of choice), please,” you say while trying to type coherently.


Sent 4:38 pm
Sure, why not? Who’s driving?
Received 4:39 pm
me. you need a ride?
Sent 4:39 pm
Roger. Time?



You pay for your drink and move aside to wait for it, leaning on the counter with your phone in hand. John answers back almost instantly, telling you he’ll be by your place at 8:30 or so with Rose, Jade, and Karkat. You’re not sure you want to be crammed into the backseat of John’s tiny car with the grumpy younger Vantas, but you do know you really want to see Dave in his element. Ever since he got this DJing thing, he’s been pumping out new tracks every week or so, and you’ve got to admit, he’s really, really good.

Finally your drink comes up, and you grab it, then head home to shower and relax for a little while before John shows up to get you. Back at your place, you dig through your wardrobe in search of something suitable for a club- something sexy but modest enough to keep the creeps away from you for at least a little while. Once you have it, you jump on your laptop for a little while, surf the internet, and bore yourself to tears. Then into the shower, where you luxuriate under the hot water, soothing your poor muscles in preparation for all the dancing you’ll probably do (or not- it depends on the crowd whether you’ll get out there or spend the night at the bar avoiding creeps).

At 8 pm, you shimmy into your club clothes and pull on your shoes. You tuck your ID and money into a small bag you can carry on a wrist strap and go wait on the couch for John to arrive. He does, at 8:33.

“You’re late, Egderp,” you say with a grin as you climb into the backseat and settle in between Rose and Karkat.

“Sorry, that was my fault,” Jade giggles from the front. “I got wrapped up in something and lost track of time.”

“Literally wrapped up,” Rose clarifies, making you snicker.

The ride to the club is filled with stupid jokes and laughter and Karkat ranting about something or other, and you’re glad you came, if just to see your friends. At the door, your group is stopped by a bouncer, but once he sees your IDs, he relents and lets you through into the club’s interior.

It’s already dark and crowded, and the music is pounding, but you don’t see Dave on the DJ platform. It’s some other guy, who’s just letting some record spin to get the crowds hyped up. The first thing you do is go over to the bar and grab a small drink to get yourself in the mood. While you’re over there, you run into Nepeta and Equius and spend a few minutes chatting. You see Porrim and Kanaya off to one side with drinks, just keeping an eye on your entire group. There’s Sollux and Aradia, and Tavros is chilling with Gamzee near the back exit. Seems like almost everyone is here… Mituna is nowhere in sight, though, but you suspect he’s hanging out with Latula back at her place. Shrugging, you join up with Feferi and Eridan for a little while, and even spot Vriska and Terezi mingling in the milling crowd.

After a little while, the random music stops and you see Dave climb up and take his place. This is the entire reason you came out tonight, and you’re not disappointed. Damn, Dave is good. You join Terezi and Rose on the dance floor, surrounded by strangers and not giving a damn. You dance like your life depends on it, throwing everything you have into the movements of your body. Quite soon, you’re sweating and feeling overheated, but you don’t stop.

Without warning, you catch a glimpse of familiar dark eyes across the dance floor. They hold your gaze for only a moment, then they’re gone. You turn in place, looking for their owner, but they’ve disappeared. You go back to dancing. John has ended up next to you, and with a goofy grin, he invites you to dance with him for the next song. You agree, and have a hell of a time. When the song ends, he pulls you back to the bar and you both order a glass of water to stay hydrated. You rest for a minute, not really a fan of the song Dave has just put on, and have to shout to be heard over the noise. Then you head right back out for more.

It seems like hours later when you turn, in the middle of an awesome move (no, seriously, you’ve never been this in the zone before), and come face to face with him. The one man you swore you never wanted to see again. Cronus Ampora.


~ ~ ~
High dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life
Fight fear for the selfish pain, it was worth it every time
~ ~ ~



His dark hair is still greased back, his skin is still that beautiful tan (though right now he looks kind of purple from the whirling lights overhead), and those dark eyes are wide with surprise as he sees you. You both kind of freeze in place, staring at each other in the middle of a pulsing mob, and you’re unsure of what to do. Do you pretend you haven’t seen him, even though you’ve held eye contact for the last thirty seconds? Do you move away? What?

The song ends, and in the very brief pause before Dave starts a new one, he says your name. His voice is exactly the same as you remember, if maybe a little deeper and hoarse from yelling over the noise of the club.

“Cronus…” you start, then recognize the song Dave has started playing. Sure, it’s a club-appropriate remix, but the words are the same. It’s your song, the one you and Cronus always danced to together whenever you came to the club.


~ ~ ~
Hold still right before we crash 'cause we both know how this ends
A clock ticks 'til it breaks your glass and I drown in you again
~ ~ ~



While you stand there staring at each other, something gives and he’s holding his hand out to you in invitation. “For old times’ sake?” he asks you, leaning in so you can hear his voice.

Hesitating only a moment, you take his hand and begin to move. His hands land on your shoulders first, then slowly slide down your arms and end up resting on your hips. For all the time you’ve been apart, your body still remembers how to move in sync with his and you fall right back into the old rhythm with memories flashing past your eyes.


~ ~ ~
'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need
Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why
~ ~ ~



As you dance together just like you used to, you feel your throat grow tight with emotion. Looking up into Cronus’s eyes, you realize that he’s struggling to hold back his feelings too.

You had called it quits over a year ago, telling him you just needed your space, you needed time to grow up (you had actually meant he needed to grow up), and that you wanted to try seeing other people. And you had yet to do that last thing, always telling yourself you weren’t ready to try again, it was too soon, you needed more time. And yet through it all, your memories of Cronus were right there, clouding your vision sometimes; but the happiness you had felt with him was also the one thing you remember more clearly than anything else, even more than the fights and needless tears and insults hurled like missiles with one intended target.


~ ~ ~
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?
~ ~ ~



Tonight, dancing with him in this overheated, overcrowded club with Dave urging you on through the music, you decide that maybe, just maybe, you were only waiting for a moment of clarity, so you could see your feelings truthfully. You give Cronus a tiny smile as the music fades out. His answering grin is almost shy.

“One more time?” you ask softly, and he nods.
.: clarity- Cronus X Reader :.
Welp, this has been sitting in my head for a couple of days. Here you go. 

Inspired by "DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love" by Usher and "Clarity" by Zedd (which are the lyrics up there). 

I know it's trash but it wouldn't leave me alone. xD

I'm Mona. I'm crazy, pretty much bipolar, and a total weirdo.
I love to draw, write, listen to music, play video games, read, sing, and be an idiot with my friends.

That's really all there is to it. Be nice to me and I'll be nice to you. Give a llama, get a llama. Live and let live.

So yeah. Have at, my lovelies.

~Mona
