    Summary

    Jonathan’s room is messy the same way that Steve’s is. There are dirty socks and shirts and underwear strewn across the floor. Cassette tapes litter the desk like miniature landmines. There’s a notebook open on his bed, a textbook and a pencil beside it. He must have been studying when Steve knocked.

    Steve’s palms start to sweat. For a moment the only thing he can think of is whether Jonathan uses flash cards too.

    He opens his mouth and says, “Why’s there still a hole in your wall?”

    Summary

    Everyone knows that the blight started in Ferelden. Some things get mixed up in the telling of it -- the story passing from person to person until it isn’t the same story at all -- but largely it's agreed upon that things started there.

    See, one woman will say to another. The first rising began on the northern shores of Lake Calenhad, where Circle Tower loomed huge and ominous against the horizon. That it was the mages who started the whole thing. Blood magic, you see. Get mixed up in that sort and you’ll end up raising the dead.

    And then the second woman will say to the first that she’d heard it said that the rising started near Orzammar. That those dead things crawled straight outta the Deep Roads and started biting people left and right, until those people started to turn too.

    Huh, they’ll say, and when they walk away to tell the next person the story will have changed again.

    Summary

    Harrison edges closer, until Barry is close enough to touch, and reaches out to take Barry’s jaw in hand. It’s tacky and cool against his palm, from sweat, tears, or both. He tilts Barry’s chin up in a testing sort of way, willing him to open his eyes. “Barry,” he says, gently. “Look at me.”

    Barry’s breathing goes unsteady. His shoulders shake harder. But he opens his eyes. Harrison isn’t surprised to find them red and glassy, more tears welling to the surface as he stares at him. He swallows hard, throat working, and says, in a wounded voice, “Zoom killed him.”

    Harrison sighs and brushes the tears from Barry’s cheeks. “I know.”

    Summary

    “Are you going to sing at me too?”

    “Do you want me to sing to you?” Thawne asks.

    Barry glances at him, frowning unhappily. He’s wearing Wells’ face again, a familiar little half-smile playing around his lips. His suit is wet. It isn’t the suit — not the yellow one — just a regular one. Plain. Black. The fabric clings to his shoulders and his hair is dripping in his eyes. His feet are bare too, and somehow it feels wrong to see them, the fine slender bones gleaming wetly. Too intimate. Barry swallows and looks away, but even when he concentrates, it refuses to change. Figures, that even in a dream Thawne would cause him grief.

    When Barry doesn’t reply, Thawne playfully hums a few bars of something vaguely familiar. Barry looks back at him, and when Thawne sees him looking, he smiles wider and gleefully stomps his way through a puddle. Sings, “If I could save time in a bottle, the first thing that I’d like to do…”

    Summary

    “Will it go away?” Bethany asks, her voice quiet as a whisper.

    You take a long moment to answer, head bowed.

    “No, it doesn’t go away,” you tell her quietly as she settles. She isn’t crying, but her body is trembling. The skin of her temple under your lips tastes of salt and sweat. You reach for her hand and squeeze, just the once, very gently. “But it isn’t so bad when you have someone to walk with you.”

    Summary

    Ben and Rey Organa are born ten years and five hundred parsecs apart, but Ben can feel it in the Force the moment she comes into being. He can feel her every second of her way home, a bright star that outshines even the familiar intensity of his parents.

    When she does arrive, his mother gathers Ben close and lets him lean in, until his nose is pressed right into the tiny thatch of brown hair atop her clean-smelling head. Rey watches him quietly and when he smiles at her, she opens her mouth and gurgles. "Nothing’s gonna hurt you, baby,” he whispers into her hair. “Not while I’m around.”

    Summary

    “If I didn’t exist,” Thawne says, quietly, moving to slide his fingers up Barry’s jaw; they leave goosebumps in their wake. “Then neither would you. And if you didn’t exist… well. We won’t get into that mess. So the universe — the, hah, Speed Force — sent me here. A paradox, clinging to the cracks between time. Just… waiting.”

    His thumb strokes there hesitantly, palm warm and weathered against Barry’s jaw. He wishes it weren’t so familiar. Wishes it wasn’t still so wanted. Barry swallows and watches Thawne’s eyes track the movement. He still hasn’t pulled away. Why hasn’t he pulled away? “W—” Barry coughs when his voice creaks alarmingly, and clears his throat. “Waiting for what?”

    Thawne chuckles, his thumb brushing over the curve of Barry’s lip. He slides it across them, slow and measured, and when Barry gasps, dips the very tip inside. Just enough to wet it. And then he says, blue eyes heavy with intent, “For you, of course."

    Summary

    “I want you,” Barry confesses unhappily, a charming pucker between his brows. His eyes dart back up, not shying away for once, to meet Eobard’s. A little bit of steel creeps into his expression again, and Eobard wants to applaud him all over again. What a beautiful creature he’s created. “Just you,” he adds, just as quiet and unhappy, but with a dawning comprehension. “Eobard Thawne.”

    “Oh, Mr. Allen,” he breathes. A shiver crawls down his spine, dick twitching in his pants. God, it’s good to hear that name again. “Say it again, won’t you?”

    “Thawne,” Barry says, tilting his head back to look at him. His eyes glint, challenging and wanting all at once. The mixture, coming from him, Barry Allen, The Flash, is intoxicating. “I want you, Eobard Thawne.”

    Summary

    Derek smirks at her, eyes hooded as he leans closer still, until his lips are brushing her ear. His breath fans hotly over the curve of her neck and Stiles shudders, knuckles going white as she clasps them together between her legs.

    “Touch yourself,” he whispers, the curve of his lips a shade too wicked.

    Summary

    “My name,” the kid tells Derek, sounding amused. “It’s Stiles. I figure if I’m going to wrestle a complete stranger for a pumpkin the least I can do is offer my name afterwards.”

    “Stiles,” Derek tries, testing the way the name sits on his tongue. “I’m Derek.”

    “Derek,” Stiles breathes, like he’s testing the weight of the name too. He grins, bright and blinding, which Derek guesses means that he likes the sound of it. “I’d offer to shake your hand, but since we almost got to second base a minute ago, I’d say we’re past that point.”

    Summary

    “If it will help,” Harrison tells him slowly, tracing his thumb over the curve of Barry’s lip. “Then give it to me. All your anger. Your rage. Your hate.”

    Barry trembles, all that rage faltering. Gently, he lowers Harrison back to the ground. He doesn’t step back. “And if it wasn’t just anger that I had to give?”

    Harrison exhales, dragging his hands down, down, down, until they’re framing Barry’s hips the same way they had his face. He steps willingly into the heat of Barry’s body, leaning in until their lips are almost touching. Harrison isn’t the type of person to gentle himself for another’s convenience, but this time, it might be worth it to try. He smirks, and whispers, “Then, Mr. Allen, I will have that from you as well.”

    Summary

    “Now, for your first assignment of the week, I would like you to tell me,” Laura Hale tells them, casting her eyes relentlessly around the room. Searching, meeting each of her student’s gazes, until those dark intelligent eyes finally come to rest on Stiles. “What would drive you to kill?”

    Stiles Stilinski, sixteen years old and new to the Future Agents in Training program, falls in love.

    Summary

    Derek stares them down, his eyebrows daring them to explain themselves. When they just stare back, he sighs. “What do you want?”

    Lydia smiles at him, bubblegum lips quirked sweetly, and tells him, “We want you for your dick.”

    Summary

    “I came back for you,” Derek tries, licking the dried blood from his lips. The taste of it makes him think, inexplicably, of Erica. It’s been so long, but he can still remember her frail human body under his hands. She’d trembled too.

    “Oh Derek,” Stiles coos, reaching out with the hand that isn’t holding the knife. Derek jerks back, but comes up hard against the wall. Stiles’ knuckles brush up against Derek’s cheek, stroking softly. “Who said that there was anyone for you to come back to?”

    Summary

    Comfort’s the hum and vibration of a plasma-pulse F20 core engine in mid-hyperspace drive. Ease is the steady, oxygenated chill from the central air circulation vents on a tight and narrow sweep of the outer rim of the Tramontane galaxy. Reality is the taste of sparkling water and roasted almonds at moon-rise. He catches Derek’s eyes from across the bar and chuckles when the man raises an eyebrow, tapping his watch and holding up nine fingers.

    Well, Stiles thinks, raising his glass in a sloppy salute. If he’s going to be stranded on a white-zoned planet with a penchant for bad music and the walking dead, at least he’s got a pretty face to look at.

    Summary

    "My heart,” Derek says, trying not to blush when Stiles gives him a wide-eyed look of surprise. He clears his throat again and glares when Cora hides a grin behind her sketchbook. “Touch my heart.”

    “That would be the sappiest thing you’ve ever said to me if, y’know, you didn’t mean it literally,” Stiles tells him with a lopsided grin, already reaching.

    “It’s still pretty sappy,” Cora says, rolling her eyes when Stiles flinches at her voice. “Hell, if you really want some sap, I can cut it out for you.” When Stiles just stares at her, vaguely horrified, she sighs and elaborates. “That way you can tell everyone that you’ve held his heart in your hands.”

    “Oh my god, Cora, go away,” Derek groans, shaking his head.

    Summary

    "So is this a werewolf thing or a you thing?” Stiles asks eventually. He’s half-hysterical, but his heartbeat is still steadier than Derek would have expected it to be. “Because I’m pretty sure Scott would die if I chopped off his head.”

    “It’s a me thing,” Derek says. “Well, it’s a Hale thing. A Hale-Addams thing. Look, can you help me reattach this? I’m a bit out of practice, so it’ll be easier if you do it."

    Summary

    Derek Hale is sitting at his computer desk, watching Stiles over the cover of a book that’s been on Stiles’ shelf for nearly as long as he’s been alive. Derek’s fingers have left their prints in the dust.

    Summary

    Stiles didn’t know that Allison liked her tacos with mango chutney or that she had an intense love/hate relationship with Taylor Swift. Lydia knew that. Scott knew that. But Stiles was good with a gun and a fast learner when it came to everything else. These days, she couldn’t ask for more.

    Summary

    “So,” Derek says, after they break free of the preserve. They’re maybe ten minutes away from the station. “Who is it? The John Doe?”

    “Should you really be asking me that, Deputy Hale?” Stiles mutters into his knees, voice strangely weak for someone who spent the last thirty minutes mouthing off to the people arresting him. “I’m not afraid of you,” Derek says before he can stop himself, glancing quickly at the road before returning the majority of his attention to the rear-view.

    “Maybe you should be,” Stiles whispers, and Derek jolts like he’s been hit. He returns his attention to the road, ignoring Stiles slumping back into his seat, so he almost misses the quiet voice from behind him. “Scott McCall. Someone killed my brother and I mean to find out who the fuck did it. Nobody’s going to stop me, not even you.”
