    Summary

    Martin sank to a knee in front of his drummer girl. Her eyes were red and swollen. Her nose was running. Her bangs were messy, like she’d been crying with her head pressed against her arm. He tilted his head and put his hand out, palm up.

    Amanda looked at her white-haired Rowdy, kneeling on this chemically clean but still probably gross public bathroom floor. Sure, she was calm now, but that didn’t mean she was happy.

    “This can’t be happening.” Tears still leaked from her eyes, rolling in fat drops down her cheeks.

    Martin reached farther, turning his hand and placing it over her empty one. “We got you, drummer girl. Don’t be scared.”

    Summary

    “You’re bleeding!” Vogel’s eyes were even wider than usual. People didn’t just spring leaks. They bled from holes that had to be put in them. Skin kept the stuff inside. What was wrong with ‘Manda’s skin?

    Amanda felt her face blush a cherry red. “Fuck” she breathed out. She was early. How exciting.

    Vogel was nearly vibrating. “Where’s the scared? How do we fix it?”

    Summary

    “Well. We do for our own.” He grunted again, and put out the stub of his smoke on the end of the seat. The acrid smell of burned plastic wafted across them for a moment, but it hardly registered.

    “I’m one of your own?” Amanda’s heart fluttered.

    Martin nodded. He didn’t look at her. “F’r as long as you wanna be, drummer girl.”

    - Part of a series. Reading "Salty, Spicy, and Sweet" first will give you some insight. Thank you for reading!

    Summary

    Suddenly Martin didn't look so relaxed anymore, shifting his posture. He didn’t say a word, but the way he looked at her said more than she needed.

     

    “Sorry, sorry, sorry! Is that— I won’t ask, it’s okay, never mind.” Amanda scrambled to backtrack.

     

    Martin sighed. “I don’t want you bein’ afraid of me. You’re not—” the tension left his shoulders as he slumped over back into himself. “You’re not supposed to be afraid of us. You can ask questions, s’fine.”

     

    “Are you sure..?”

     

    “Go 'head, drummer girl, ask whatever you like.”

     

     

    Amanda learns a little more about the Rowdy 3's past, while Martin lets himself be a little vulnerable.

    Summary

    ”Y’know, make it up. Pretend to be in a relationship with someone. Can’t be that hard to fake, right?” it was still a stupid idea, but Todd was actually pretty invested in it now. He leaned forward, folding his arms. “C’mon, think about it- you got any other desperate homeless friends?”

    Yellow sat up fully, glancing between Todd and the paper. The storm clouds parted, and the sunniest smile Todd had ever seen broke across his face. “Well, now that you mention it, one fellow does spring to mind…”

    Todd meets Dirk when both are homeless and stuck in a rut- Todd fresh out of the band, Dirk fresh out of England- and find the perfect apartment. The catch? It’s professional couple only. Dirk proposes a ruse, and Todd’s too desperate to be picky. With the help of their friends- Farah, Todd’s trigger-happy ex-crush from college; Bart, Dirk’s terrifying ex-bodyguard from boarding school; Ken, the mysterious computer guy downstairs- they must keep their landlady Amanda Mandelbrot believing the lie, and learn to navigate the wonderful world of being ‘independent adults’.

    What could go wrong?

    Summary

    “So, you guys can feed off more than just fear?”

    “Yep yep!” Vogel was usually the first to answer a question, even if he didn’t always know the answer to it.

    “Most high intensity emotions give us something.” Cross picked at his nails with a knife.

    “Different flavor profiles.” Gripps rolled a bat across his thighs.

    “Flavor profiles?” Amanda laughed. “Watch a little Food Network at your last smash?”

    Summary

    "Amanda didn’t know how long she’d been with the Rowdy 3. It felt like 3 minutes and 3 years all at once. She couldn’t remember a time she felt so free. Not even before her illness really took over, ‘cause she’d been so young then. No, this was the first time she’d been free as an adult, and she loved it."

    In which Amanda puts on a little show for Martin, in front of a campfire and the other Rowdies.

    Summary

    Everything happened at once. The once-dark room became a disorienting haze of flashing light, the noise caught him off guard and he froze, ears ringing.

    And Dirk opened his eyes.

    Which would have been fucking great, if there had been any Dirk left inside them at all.

    Ficlet with multiple-choice ending (to varying degrees of angst), inspired by the new s2 teaser. See notes for chapter-specific warnings.
