    Turns out guilt is one hell of a downside. It's bizarre—he can't remember the last time he felt guilty, but there he is, cutting down shadows while the rain pours down topside.

    He used to laugh at people like this. When did he turn into such a idiot?

    About a month after he'd met him, Tony gave Steve a chocolate bar. He'd been on a business trip to Europe, he'd said, and he'd thought Steve might like this, and he'd pressed the candy into Steve's hand. It was good chocolate, Steve had seen on the label, real Swiss chocolate. And he knew then that he couldn't have any, because it would be gone and there would be no more and there was no point getting used to anything, getting used to this wondrous future, when he could fall into the ice again and wake up decades later, when it could all be taken away again--

    He'd left the chocolate in a desk drawer.

    And then a couple days later, he'd run into Tony in the hallway, and Tony had asked him if he liked the chocolate, and he, ashamed, had had to admit -- he wasn't going to lie to him -- that he hadn't touched it.

    To this day, he remembered how Tony's face had fallen. Oh, Tony said, dully, and he hadn't looked at him. I'm sorry, he said. I'll get you something else next time. I didn't know you didn't like it. What kinds of things do you like?

    Steve had gone hot and he'd stammered out an explanation. It wasn't that, he said. He liked it. He was sure he would have liked it. But then it would have been gone, and he didn't want to waste it and he couldn't-- he couldn't just waste food. He couldn't just-- let himself enjoy it, and he couldn't even manage to tell Tony that.

    Tony had always been a genius, and he'd watched Tony then, as Tony put it all together. He'd watched him think it all through: the explanation, the way Steve had acted, the way Steve acted about all the food, and he'd just known. And then he'd looked at him, eyes wide and earnest, and he'd said, very softly: there will always be more for you. There will always be enough for you. There will always be enough for everyone. I promise.

    He hadn't said it like he was boasting about his wealth, like he wanted Steve to know he could afford to do this. He'd said it like he cared. Like even then he wanted to take care of Steve, any way Steve would let him.

    “No,” Gavin said, curling against the window. “Nooo. Yes. Maybe?”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The worst questions in the world, as far as Ray’s concerned, always begin with the phrase how did a kid like you. Just about any fucking thing in the world can come after it, but it’s always a bad question. It usually means he’s being held up to some kind of standard or norm. Ray isn’t good at a lot of things. Living up to expectations that aren’t, say, Geoff’s expectations happens to be around eighty percent of them.

    For example: how did a kid like you make it through high school without getting murdered, or how did a kid like you drop out of high school.

    Then there’s Ray’s absolute favorite, the true all-time classic: how did a kid like you get into sniping?

    The answers to those, in no particular order, are: grew up poor, no hope or money, and carefully.

    Ryan actually taught him a new response to that last one recently. A guy unfortunately saw Ryan’s face without the paint during a robbery, way too soft for his own good, and asked something like how the fuck did a guy like you get a reputation as a mercenary.

    You’re about to find out, Ryan told him, this horrific smirk instantly leaping into action, and cut him open gut to sternum. It was kind of awesome. Bloody, too. Ray still hasn’t gotten some of the bloodstains out of that pair of jeans, so that’s why they’re still sitting in his room, folded up (by Ryan, who took them to clean them and lied about having some amazing foolproof way to get blood out of clothes, what a fucking diva).

    Ray exhaled noisily, pressing his cheek into the stock and pointing it at the cops. This wasn't the time to line up a precision snipe but just being able to hit the cops would be good. Even with the car careening at breakneck speed, and the uncertainty of whatever the fuck his driver was up to, he calmed his mind and his breathing, easily slipped into what Geoff called his "sniper-zen", where tuned the rest of the world out and focused on his target.

    End of the barrel pointed at the closest windshield. In-one-two-three, out-one-two- and the windshield shattered and the cop car swerved. Ray reloaded and lined it up with a tire. In-one-two, out-one-and the tire blew, sending the truck careening into the rest of the pursuit vehicles. After that there was no time or need to count, he just had to line up his shot on the inhale and shoot on the exhale.

    "Fuck, man," danger stranger murmured, eyes on the rearview and not on the road, "You are really good at that."

    "Oh yeah, man, I know how to handle my gun." Ray laughed at the look his makeshift chauffeur gave him. Just because they were in danger of dying pretty badly didn't mean he couldn't still try to flirt. He removed his clip when he emptied it and started manually loading his gun from the spare bullets he stared pulling out of his pockets, knocking out cop after cop. More cars skidded apart, and crashed into others, and amazingly they started to actually get away.

    "You've gotten worse."

    Zoro chugs the bottle, and Perona titters.

    “Can you blame him, though? There you are, thumping away up the stairs in those heavy boots of yours, and he’s got his monkey legs wrapped around that blonde dimwit up there— clearly his primate body couldn’t hear over its own raging hormones.”

    Zoro’s this close to chopping all her hair off.

    There's no fingers digging into the soil, no hand, no wrist, no forearm. Sanji's eyes trail along the ground where his arm should be, meeting nothing but blood and rock and dirt, yet he can feel the muscles of his arm flex under his command, feel the texture of the earth under his fingers if he tries hard enough.

    "I'll kill you all!" Sanji howls. Zoro takes the impact on his shoulder with a grunt, arms still wrapped tightly around the other man who is now cursing him and calling him names - but not the names he usually calls him - things like fish bastard and fucking perverted eel and goddamn scaly freak! And Zoro absorbs the shudders, the wails, the hands driving as rock-hard fists into his haramaki. It's those blows that rock him most of all, but not for the pain they bring. But for what they say louder than the curses about the cook's agony. He says nothing as the words finally crumble into sobs and the blows stop and Sanji is left trembling and sweating in his arms.

    This is not the way he'd hoped to get the cook there. Not for these reasons. Not like this.

    It’s just--it’s stupid, really. At first it had been the challenge of getting used to having someone else always around. Of having to make sure not to turn the TV up too loud after Ryan goes to bed. Or that he can’t just eat whenever he feels like, or take random naps, because someone’s schedule is tied up in his own now. But they work around that pretty well after a few months have gone by, he thinks.

    The problem lies in the fact that they’re just...not the kind of couple that lives together. For starters, Ray is horribly introverted, Ryan only marginally less so, which means that for the most part they don’t really go places to hold hands and be romantic. Their dates used to be going over to the other’s apartment, maybe to the movies, but now they don’t even get the thrill of seeing each other after a few days.

    And Ray just can’t do that thing where they pass in the hallway and share a quick kiss. Just, why would he do that. The one time Ryan tries, Ray mumbles something about cooties and speed-walks away.

    He frowned, “I don’t follow, Nami dear.”

    “Sacrifice yourself. Like it’s nothing.”

    “Oh,” Sanji shuts the cabinet and leans against the counter. Had his mother ever cooked him a meal? Before the Orbit he was never allowed in the kitchen, his father made sure of that. Whether that was an order specifically for him or if it was for all them he never knew. It’s possible she cooked for him, he supposes, but if she did, it was never a meal that stood out to him, “Honestly, I don’t have many clear memories of my mother, let alone her cooking.”

    He turns around when he hears sniffling, “Shut up! I’m not crying!” Franky says, clearly in tears, “A man, a chef no less, forgetting one of the staples of home is super tragic! But I’m not crying!”

    “Dumbass,” Sanji rolls his eyes and lights a cigarette, “I have this home. Why would I need that home?”

    Two powerful metal arms wrap around his torso and lift him into a bone-crushing hug, “Don’t worry, Swirly-bro! The Sunny will be the best home you’ve ever had! There’s no need to mourn your childhood.”

    “I’m not the one mourning!” He kicks Franky’s side until he’s dropped.

    “Bah,” Franky runs a finger under his sunglasses to wipe away his stray tears, “I need to go freshen up.”

    Sanji stands alone in the middle of his kitchen.

    Yeah, this home will do just fine.

    Zoro was looking back along the path, but no one else was coming. “Where’s Cook?” he asked Brook.

    Brook cocked his head to the side in confusion. “He’s with the Gently Pirates. That’s where he was going. Weren’t you paying attention, Zoro-san?”

    “But you followed him. You went to bring him back, didn’t you? What the hell did you do; walk him there?”

    Brook grew still. Slowly, seriously, he nodded.

    “WHAT?” Zoro was shocked. “Didn’t you even try to talk him out of it?”

    “No,” Brook said quietly. “I said nothing. I walked with him until we reached the harbour. Then I watched as he went on board the Moon Citadel.”

    Zoro growled. “Are you trying to piss me off? Why the hell would you just walk him there?”

    Brook glared right back at him. “Because I didn’t want him to be alone!”

    Zoro’s heart jumped uncomfortably.

    "Sanji-san has been feeling down ever since we came to this island," Brook continued. "I wanted to do something to let him know we still have his back."

    "What is the article about, Luffy?” Robin asks, voice soft and face impassive behind her sunglasses. But there’s just enough of a faint smirk to her lips to have Sanji glancing warily at the swordsman still napping on the other side of the deck, apparently unbothered by all of the commotion. The stupid moss-head.

    “Inside the Strawhat Pirates: Roronoa Zoro and Blackleg Sanji,” Chopper reads, which isn’t too surprising considering the similar piece written on Luffy the previous month, so Sanji doesn’t understand why the little reindeer’s eyes go wide until he continues, “A-A bond forged in hell.”

    “Bond?” he repeats. “What the hell does that mean?”

    Usopp is laughing at Chopper’s fretting while Luffy looks on in confusion. Franky thinks it’s super but Sanji is far from convinced. After all, what kind of bond could people possibly think they have?

    “Apparently you and that idiot are the best of friends,” Nami snickers, answering his unspoken question. She’s managed to swipe the paper in the moment of confusion and flicks it once before reading out loud, “Based on their ability to combine their individual fighting skills in the midst of the most heated battles, despite their ruthless and unyielding reputations, it must be that their relationship has surpassed that of crewmates. The feared Pirate Hunter Zoro and Black Leg Sanji have found a best friend in one another. After all, such an ease with one another can only come from a profound depth of understanding, truly a friendship forged in the firey pits of hell.”

    This is Ryan’s version of heaven.

    They don't have gods, or rather they have old gods, mean ones, money and blood and projectiles at high velocity, the way a bomb goes off, the way fire spreads, how adrenaline makes the world sharp and holy-fast, they know these gods give and these gods take away, quick as a bullet leaving a gun, quick as Ray kneeling to pull that trigger again and again, complete as his aim because he doesn’t miss. That hymn of noise when Ryan fits a launcher to his shoulder and fires, the hallelujah of the world breaking apart in a concussive blast, everything baptized and sanctified with blood, blessed be the name of the heist.

    And this is another mean god in the pantheon, speed fizzing in Ryan’s veins, Ray yelling into the night, “FUCK YOU, AND FUCK YOU, AND FUCK YOU ESPECIALLY,” that push of acceleration, and the drag of gravity and awareness, they’re fucking alive, nothing beats this feeling somewhere north of 4 a.m. and Michael says, “What in the fuck are you two doing.”

    He really likes Ryan, he decides, once he's spent a few months as designated RR (It's funny, because Ryan Retriever and Ray and Ryan. Alliteration’s a riot). Not that he didn't like Ryan before, but it bears stating after the realization that Ryan’s the best friend he's had since he was six. He doesn't say that, because ew, emotions, and also because he's pretty sure Ryan knows, but it's a nice feeling.

    So this is how it goes. This is how they go. Ray brings Ryan back and throws him a pair of pants. They make their way back to everyone else, and, depending on what kind of day it's been, they talk about nothing, or they listen to their feet hit the ground. This is how Ray learns a score of amusing anecdotes, some fun facts about Ryan, some fun facts about shit he has no idea why Ryan knows, and some not so fun facts about Ryan. This is when Ray suggests they get BFF necklaces that read BE FRIE and ST ENDS. This is how Ray learns that Ryan’s probably responsible for .002 percent of the entire Diet Coke consumption in the United States. This is when they air their admittedly petty grievances about how damn social every single one of their friends are. This is when Ray eventually realizes he's in love with Ryan.

    “- and as my heart beats in tandem with your footsteps, I realize I will only ever follow after you, only watch you, for you are the one whom fate has dealt the lover’s hand. The hand that is my own.

    Kuroo looks up, beaming, “What’d you guys think? Good, right? I’m getting way better.”

    A chorus of groans and boos and ‘let us out, I have to go home’ resound and Tsukishima can’t quell the loud peal of laughter that erupts from him. Kuroo is fucking insane.

    A short, brown-haired kid who Tsukishima recognizes as the team’s libero, folds his arms. “Do you want the truth? Or should we lie to you?”

    Kuroo frowns. “Lie to me.”

    The kid flashes a thumbs up. “Excellent. Brilliantly worded magic that will transcend time.”

    “Okay, truth.”

    A voice, who Tsukishima recognizes as Kenma’s, cuts in. “It sounds like something a serial killer would leave at a crime scene for the police to find.”
