    Summary

    Oh leave the Wise our measures to collate.
    One thing at least is certain, light has weight.
    One thing is certain and the rest debate.
    Light rays, when near the Sun, do not go straight.

    Summary

    Alan was out getting things for dinner, and due back shortly, and Don was apparently taking a shower before dinner, and so he decided to at least open the conversation. After all, his own car would be in the driveway, facilitating a quick exit should things go badly (and he already assumed they probably would, and was resigned to another night alone, though he did wonder whether he should wait until after dinner to broach the subject and so ensure that he at least got to eat whatever Alan was cooking tonight. He really had been looking forward to dinner and good conversation, though putting it that way, his plan seemed rather self-serving.)

    Summary

    All of which somehow led him back to the alien, because there was just something about the little guy—maybe the expression—that made him think of Larry, though to be honest, he'd probably been thinking of Larry anyway. It was a problem of defining events.

    Summary

    "So...tell me again why you're still encouraging me to date Amita?" Charlie set down the now empty beer on the rail, noticing it made a neat line beside the others, his and Larry's nearly indistinguishable but for the small amount Larry always left at the bottom of every bottle.

    "Was I?" Larry looked down at the table, seeming to study it, though they had just finished the game and Charlie didn't think that either of them really wanted another. His own eyes were getting a little heavy from the beer, and his arm was starting to get loose and unpredictable. Larry, strangely enough, seemed relatively steady, though he was topping the puck.

    Summary

    "There's a story in this closet, Charles. No—" Larry held up a hand, "Anticipating, here, your objection that there's probably a story in most closets, which is certainly true. And I don't suppose mine to be particularly original."

    Summary

    "Charles, perhaps it would be best to inform your father about the impending Armageddon."
    —Larry Fleinhardt to Charlie Eppes, "Dirty Bomb."
    "Well, listen, Dad, whenever I have a girlfriend, I will let you know by putting a note on the refrigerator."
    –Charlie to Alan, "Vector."

    Summary

    1. There came a point after which ignoring the attraction was simply impossible. And he'd tried—he certainly had at that. He considered it a sign of personal weakness, then, that he could no longer look at Charles at all without thinking about the line of his body entirely unencumbered by clothing.

    Summary

    The fish's upturned white belly was precisely fish-belly white and, Larry decided, somewhat disturbing. He had already considered fishing it out of the pond—and wasn't that a strange expression? He'd never actually considered its origin before. And if he did get it out of the water, he hadn't come up with a good place to put it. After all, he could hardly bring it inside and flush it down the toilet. It was far too large. And it was too much like something he cared about to just throw away.

    And that was precisely the problem, wasn't it? What did you do with something like this?

    Someone else would notice it soon, he supposed, and then it would be out of his hands.

    Summary

    Ian and Charlie have everything going for them in their relationship. Could it all be taken from them when someone Ian thought was gone for good comes to take the one thing that matters most to him.

    Summary

    "I'm just trying to understand," Charlie offered.

    Larry nodded. "Because for some reason, some part of this bothers you. So, what bothers you—that I, apparently, don't cry when you believe I should? Or that you do? Because I suspect those are two very different problems, if they are, indeed, problems, and I'm not entirely sure that they are."

    Summary

    "Children are wormholes... Yeah, they're portals. Into the unreachable future and unattainable past. Now as things stand now they only exist in the theoretical realms."

    Larry waved a hand in the air as if dismissing his entire argument, and then, both hands were in the air, moving around as if Larry was conducting a small orchestra as he spoke. "Don't you think about the future, Charles? This house—it's outlived every one of its owners, every last one, as you would expect. But did they expect it? And I—I have to wonder, sometimes, if my legacy will be nothing more than this—" Larry fingered the film of sawdust coating his hands "—that somebody else revises, removes, strips, obscures, erases. Is it hubris to want more than that, do you think?"

    Summary

    Getting married on a drunken dare made perfect sense when they'd gotten together over an equally drunken bet, especially when almost everyone that mattered, who knew about them, was there when Ian's brother issued the dare. They'd been to hell and back a few times, separately and together, they still had one more issue looming. Don and Alan have absolutely no clue they've even met let alone have been together for sixteen years. Oh and a serial sniper with a boatload of copycats to get out of the way first.

    Summary

    "What—you're telling me my son—what—my son is homosexual?"

    "Gay. The word is gay nowadays." And leave it to Don to insist on precision and miss the point entirely.

    Sequel to "Making Out."

    Summary

    "Charlie, before this conversation proceeds any further, I have to say, now, just to be clear, and so there's no potential for misunderstanding between us on the subject--that I don't particularly care what your thesis advisee thinks of my math skills, or anything else, for that matter. I particularly don't care what she thinks of my theories, most of which lie outside her area of expertise, such as it is. So what I think of her, as you asked, is largely...irrelevant. I am capable of being professional, regardless."

    "Wow--you really don't like her. I had no idea. How did I miss that?"
