    Summary

    It’s the beginning after the end . . . or it could be. And in their bedroom, after the War, Steve Rogers discovers that like everything deemed precious and worth having, he, too, needs to be fought for . . . and won. The question is, does Tony Stark want him enough—is he the right person—to do both?

    Summary

    On their first date, lonely, gun-shy twenty-somethings Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe . . . go to a movie matinee. Chirrut talks-up a staple Hollywood classic to Baze, and somehow, the date—and life thereafter—goes quickly, steadily sideways. Which may have been the right way to go, all along. Written for a prompt but inspired by the Franz Ferdinand song of the same title. Prompt in end notes.

    Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe navigate married life, family, and kitchen appliances one busy Saturday. Not limited to arguing over wedding gifts, gross candy, Funko figures, walking in on their son and his very unexpected boyfriend in a . . . compromising position and, finally, chasing the ever-elusive peaceful afterglow, after such a full and eventful day.

    Summary

    When your elderly furnace quits mid-winter and you need help fast, who ya gonna call?

    Why, your best friend’s boyfriend’s ex-lover, who happens to be an electrician, of course! Who else?

    OR: Dorian Pavus gets locked in a freezing-cold cellar all night, with a busted furnace, a ridiculously distracting and flirty handyman, and very little light . . . but also with far more warmth and heat than he would ever have expected.

    Summary

    “Jesse” never speaks. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t angry. Doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a lot to be angry about. Varric and the others are concerned. They always ask how “Jesse” feels, in the hopes that he’ll at last speak, because they care more than almost anyone has. But he never speaks. He can’t. There’s so much to say, and the words get so bottle-necked in his mind and mouth, tangle his tongue so terribly, that it’s easier and best to say nothing at all.

    Fenris is the only one who hears that—who hears “Jesse” clearly—and understands him perfectly, without either of them having to say a word.

    Summary

    “Oh . . . my God. Scott. . . ?”

     

    Even though it’s been nearly two decades since he last heard it, Scott Darryl Ryder immediately recognizes that voice from once upon a childhood—from tone to timbre—and freezes at the stupid VA coffee machine.

    Summary

    Garrett Hawke spends three, thankfully nonconsecutive nights at Kirkwall’s newest club, The Sea Turtle’s Revenge. The music’s horrible, the patrons annoying, and the bartender’s a special kind of slimy . . . but the bouncer kind of makes up for all that.

    Summary

    Life in Heleus City proves hazardous to yet another person’s health and it falls to Lt. Scott Ryder to solve the case. But not without getting re-tangled up with his estranged siblings, landing in the number one spot on the shit-list of every ambitious thug in the city, and butting heads with his unfairly irresistible ex, i.e. The One Who Got Away, with depressing frequency. Between all that and his captain riding his ass about all the unused PTO he’s accruing—not to mention that it’s been raining so hard for so long, anyone with any common sense has migrated south or started building an ark—Lt. Ryder deserves Olympic gold just for keeping his head above water.

    Chapter Summary: As so many crime stories do, this one begins with a murder. . . .

    Summary

    “You. Me. My desk,” a low voice says from behind Reyes Vidal, heralding a long-familiar, expected whiff of Mountain Dew, Cheetos, and weed, before it pauses then adds: “Triple-time, Vidal.”

    Summary

    This time wasn’t going to be like last time. This time . . . this time, he was going to get the job. Going to make a good impression on whatever uptight, snot-rocket, pretentious Heathcliff owned this Wuthering Shites-pile of stones, and finally, finally—for at least the rest of the school year, hopefully—he and Ellie were going to have a safe and stable place to hang their baseball caps.
