    Summary

    Dakin still remembers the excitement that bubbles up whenever the urge to write the numbers down appeared. They were always one less than the other before, always a countdown to the mystery that will define his life. It is exciting business, soulmates, still rare enough that people consider it a miracle.

     

    A.K.A the soulmate au no one asked for

    Summary

    “I hate to interrupt what is obviously such a welcome flirtation,” a voice rises from a little way off, and the entire party turn to look. “But I’m told there’s a wedding here this weekend.”

    “Irwin!” Lockwood says brightly. “I was starting to think you weren’t gonna bother turning up. And after all the work that went into getting you an invite!”

    Irwin huffs a quiet, barely there laugh, and Dakin is staring between him and Lockwood with an expression of complete betrayal.

    “What in Christ’s name are you doing here?” Dakin pulls his sunglasses from his face and rises to his feet, crossing the grass until he’s face to face with Irwin. “You weren’t on the list of invitees, how did you–”

    Summary

    “You never used to say his name before.”

    “He was a threat before,” Scripps replies, rather more bluntly than he means to. “Given he got his arse kicked by a baby there suddenly seems less of a possibility that him or his maniac followers are going to kill someone I care about.”

    Posner fixes him with an odd look for a moment, and Scripps wonders if he knows just how worried he’d been for his safety, how often he’d been thinking of him instead of his summer reading, how awful it’d been hearing of an attack but not knowing yet if he was safe.

    Summary

    “I often wonder if I’ll ever feel love like that.”

    “You will, Pos,” Scripps replies assuredly, thinking briefly of the name printed under the band of his watch.

    “If I find them, that is,” he smiles demurely, expression slipping into a frown nonetheless. “I do hope I’m not a horrible disappointment.”

    Summary

    I just needed to write some fluff. Starts angsty, ends disgustingly happy. Plenty of clichés.

     

    “Irwin,” and saying the name again hurt, “You should go, don’t worry about me, you’re probably busy and I’ll be fine on my own. You don’t want to see me again.”

    Summary

    If it had been fiction, Dakin would have died. (The Turn of the Screw.) If it had been fiction, perhaps Irwin himself would have copped it. (Death in Venice.) Neither happened, of course. Irwin had survived, as argumentative and desire-tormented as ever, which proved that literature offered only the vaguest of guides to human affairs.
