    Summary

    When Derek is nine, his daemon turns to him, her eyes wide and curious. She’s wearing the shape of a panther, supposedly because she likes the irony of it. Mostly, he figures she just likes having an excuse to sun herself languidly on the rocks by the creek.

    “Derek,” she says, carefully. “I want to try something different.”

    Summary

    Rodney can’t see much about the man inside of the Santa costume from where he’s standing, the wig and beard hides what the suit doesn’t, but there’s something in his mannerisms that makes Rodney feel a spark of familiarity. He swallows and is still trying to puzzle it out when the Santa finishes with the little girl and turns their way.

    John Sheppard looks back out at Rodney from behind a fuzzy white Santa beard, his eyes widening almost imperceptibly as they shift from Rodney to Charlie and then back again.

    Jesus - fucking - Christ.

    Summary

    “You’re Emily Kaldwin.” A pause. “You are, aren’t you?”

    Emily blows out a loud sigh, giving him an annoyed look, as if he’s to blame for the fact that she’s the most recognizable face in all the Isles. “Might be.”

    “Huh,” the girl says, and takes a seat right there on the floor. “I’m Rey.”

    Summary

    The girl watches him warily, hunkered down in a nest of blankets in the corner. She’s a squatter, that much is obvious from her thin, patched clothing and the general disrepair of the apartment that Corvo’s found himself in. He blinks around, eyes lighting on a sofa, a desk, a couple rat-gnawed shoes.

    “You’re bleeding all over my floor,” she says flatly, her eyes heavy on him.

    “I’m bleeding all over your balcony,” he corrects, and wavers hard enough that his other leg gives out from under him. “And I’m mostly sure that it isn’t yours.”

    Summary

    “It’s okay,” her brother tells her on their wedding night, lowering himself to sit on the floor beside her, until his nose is level with her shaking knees. When he smiles, he looks like a monster. “You don’t have to love me.”

    Then he goes to sleep on the couch, taking only a threadbare pillow from their marriage bed.

    Summary

    “You have no power over me,” Rodney whispers, just to see the way that the Goblin King’s eyes narrow - how he steps closer, until his narrow hips are pressed up against the footboard. He reaches out, curling long, elegant fingers around the cold metal rungs between them, and though he hisses out low through his teeth when he finds the sting of iron waiting for him, he does not look away.

    He is a looming figure in the shadows, a slash of moonlight thrown across his face illuminating the smirk that sits there. He slouches in towards Rodney, sways toward him, his clever eyes hooded, and smiles like he’s won something. Asks, “You sure about that?”

    Summary

    “So why don’t you do it?” he asks, breathless. His chest is heaving, his mouth open, gasping for breath.

    “Do what?” Rey asks, and thinks about biting his mouth.

    The corners of his lips tick upwards. Kylo squints at her, half-smiling. “That.”

    Summary

    Derek scoffs. “You want to take me back to Quantico.”

    “I’m an intern, Derek. Pretty sure they’re not going to go looking for you under my mattress. Come on,” he coaxes, jostling Derek with his elbow. “You know how this works, we’ve done it before. Safest place to be is right under their nose.”

    “This is a little bigger than hiding in the closet every once in awhile so your father doesn’t notice that you're harboring a fugitive, Stiles,” Derek tells him. He shuffles backwards, but Stiles follows him, always a little too close. When Stiles refuses to look chastised Derek reaches out and grabs hold of his wrist, stopping him at arm’s length. He swallows. “We aren’t talking about you getting kicked out of your program if they find me. You’ll go to prison.”

    Summary

    “I just got you back,” Prompto says quietly, words muffled into the curve of Noctis’s neck. There are soft, silken hairs along Noctis’s jawline now where before there had just been smooth skin. He rubs his cheek against it, touches reverent fingers to the lines of Noctis's face. The broader jaw, the defined brow, all the places where his baby softness has eased slowly and carefully into adulthood.

    Somewhere, hidden away from the rest of the world, Noctis had grown into a king.

    Ten years - ten horrible years - and Prompto would have given anything to watch it happen.

    Summary

    John finds out that there’s a vampire in Atlantis the day after they’ve stepped through the gate.

    He finds out that the vampire in question is Rodney McKay four weeks later, when they’re all hunkered down in the yawning shadow of some crumbling ruins and Rodney looks at him, his eyes eerily bright in the darkness, sees the blood on John’s face, and says, “Oh.”

    Summary

    When he is thirty-seven years old, John Sheppard thinks about the universe.

    Slowly - ever so slowly - beneath a layer of orange fleece, the shape of the universe blooms across Rodney McKay’s chest. To Rodney, it feels like an itch. By the time he gets home and notices, he isn’t thinking about the connection at all.
