Peridot Chen Sun, a nerdy foster kid, is fine with her new school until she meets her year-long lab partner - Amethyst Espina, truant, wrestler, bad girl extraordinaire. When a tyrant teacher puts Peridot's grade on the line because of Amethyst's misconduct, the girls must learn to work together to make it through the year alive. And who knows? Maybe they'll learn some lessons outside of basic biology, and more about what it means to live. Human AU of Steven Universe, but can also be read separate. Updates on scheduled Fridays; cover drawn by me.
