    Summary

    "He, in the darkest corner of the pub, hands wrapped around a pen and a pint, listened to Dakin moan about the next essay, the next woman, the next step. Then there was a stutter, a stop, and he looked up at Dakin who gazed back with a calculating expression. Then there was a smirk, and Scripps felt his blood run cold. He knew that face."

    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 passed by the school where I studied as a boy
    and said in my heart: here I learned certain things
    and didn't learn others. All my life I have loved in vain
    the things I didn't learn."

    "The School Where I Studied," by Yehuda Amichai, translated by Chana Bloch and Chana Kronfeld.

    When Scripps gets to Oxford, certain things change and others don't. Or: Don Scripps grows up and, however slowly, attempts to come to terms with God, love, and himself.

    Summary

    “Well, I came out to Mum.” Posner drops heavily on to the unmade bed, creasing a few screwed-up papers as he goes.

    “Shite. How’d it go?”

    “Better than I thought, actually,” Posner hums. “Though I do think she’s mostly just pleased there won’t be any unexpected grandchildren in the picture. Except, well. She asked if I was seeing someone, and I thought Dad might take it better if he thought I was, so I said yes. Only that worked too well and now they want me to bring him home over the holidays."

    [ wherein Posner needs to take a boy home to meet his parents, and Scripps will have to do ]

    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.”
