    Summary

    Jake's been out of the Army for six years, piecing his life back together after nearly dying in an incident he doesn't talk about. He spends his days working in a quiet library, his nights consulting for a security firm, and any free time spoiling his ten year old niece.

    When Jake's niece starts taking self-defense classes, Jake is skeptical. When he meets her instructor, he is far from impressed by the stoic “Cougar”—if that's even his real name. When Jake gets into an altercation with that instructor, he can admit that he may have bitten off a bit more than he can chew. Cougar is well versed in the art of fighting, but that isn't the only thing he's excellent at. Getting under Jake's skin seems to be another specialty of his. Slowly Jake finds that he's not the only one who's a little bit broken, but just because he is doesn't mean he can't live life day by day, and those days are better with Cougar at his side.

    Summary

    Over eighty years have passed since the Disaster that ended civilization and covered the world in a permanent layer of snow and ice. Humanity survived, if only barely, and have since then managed to recover a little of what it lost, building settlements and rediscovering technology to help them in their struggle. Every settlement relies on technology for their survival and the Engineers are the ones tasked with maintaining and building it, but despite their importance the Engineers are a dying breed.

    Jake and his sister live under constant threat of being kidnapped or enslaved for the skills they possess, so he has learned to be wary of strangers — Raiders in particular, who murder and steal without remorse. But that changes when he meets a Raider he can't quite bring himself to hate. Cougar is different, and causes a myriad of conflicting emotions that Jake would rather not feel to being with.

    But when it turns out that Cougar might be able to lead Jake to the key to humanity's continued survival he decides to embark on the biggest adventure of his life, trust issues be damned. It soon becomes obvious that it won't be an easy journey, for more than one reason.

    Summary

    Jensen's got love letters to Cougar in his bag but knows he'll never let anyone else see them. It's not that he wants to keep it a secret, he just knows that it might be best that way what with DADT, Cougar's Catholic values and the risk of getting a bullet between his eyes. Writing letters in secret is one of the few outlets Jensen has.

    But it's really just a matter of time before the truth comes out...

    Summary

    Q wonders, briefly, how James could possibly think this is an appropriate time to profess his undying love—or whatever the hell it is he’s attempting to do; though, frankly, the skeleton suit did make him blink a bit stupidly at his laptop—but then something explodes to his left, and Q heaves a long-suffering sigh and snaps at him for ruining everything good in the world. James laughs and carries on wielding his Walther like it isn’t the 7500th replacement that Q has thrown at him.
