    Summary

    The merchant, Gnaeus, who had sold Marcus this property, had spoken of a solid main building, of well-kept pens and fertile soil, all newly abandoned by deceitful tenants and only cheap because he was tired of the whole business and wanted the land off his hands for good. He had talked of neighbours and a village nearby with opportunities of trade, but he had entirely failed to mention that the house lay deep in tribal country.

    Summary

    During their first ever disagreement, Chris knocked Jodie to the ground with a fist to the face. It was surprise more than anything that made Jodie's knees buckle and sat her down hard on the rough school yard asphalt.

    ... Chris kissed her for the first time four months later, out behind the birches where the teachers couldn't see them.

    Summary

    Sometimes Farid thinks that it's because of – not in spite of – being Canavar that he can stand it. He can smell the human emotion beneath the glitz; he can hear hearts and bowels and muscles moving beneath crinkling taffeta and auto-tuned voices. It grounds him in a way that makes other performers praise him for being calm and level-headed despite his young age.

    Summary

    That night, when Kurt has washed his face and brushed his teeth, he calls for his dad to come say goodnight. His dad kneels down next to his bed. “Alright, lemme check.” Kurt sits up and opens his mouth wide while his dad checks first his top and then his bottom teeth. “Good job.”

    Kurt closes his mouth. His father's face is still really close. Kurt swallows. “I think... Maybe I'm a little bit a girl,” he blurts out; he's been thinking about it all evening. “Or maybe I'm just a girly boy,” he rephrases at the frown on his dad's face.

    “Well,” his dad says, looking at a loss for words, “I guess... I guess you'll figure it out.”

     
    Five times Kurt's love was misunderstood, and one time it wasn't.

    Summary

    Penny førte hende ind i grundtrinnene med en tillært selvfølgelighed - to og tre, fire og et. "Jeg tror vi skal prøve noget andet. Du har set hvordan vi danser oppe i lysthuset, ikke? Efter fyraften?"

    Baby nikkede tøvende "Jo, men..."

    "Jeg tror vi skal prøve at danse på den måde." Penny tog fat i hendes talje og trak hende tættere ind til sig, "Vi skal vænne dig til at danse med din partner." Hun tog fat i Babys hånd og lagde den på sin skulder.

    Summary

    Shaun has just left a long-term boyfriend six months ago. The royalty checks from his first book are steadily dwindling. He is on the edge of finishing a book that he sometimes thinks is a work of art and sometimes wildly pretentious - and if it doesn't sell, he can't bear the thought of having to ask his step-dad for money. He's dating a guy who is ten years younger and who is only just coming to terms with being gay. He didn't mean to fall in love this hard and this quickly.

    Summary

    “Eighty-three dollars, you sad fuck,” Billy says by way of greeting. He's loud and cheerful, slurring his words a little. He slams the door shut behind him and moves into the room. Joe turns over fully on the futon to watch him. Billy's hair is standing up in its usual spikes. There's a Rorschach patch of sweat on the front of his shirt. The deep red welt running from the corner of his left eye and down across his cheekbone is darkening to purple, but the asshole is still grinning.

    Summary

    Santana's a little surprised by how easy this feels, just the two of them, without any schemes or goals; no people to intimidate or impress. And that's when it hits her: this is what she wants. This stupid thing. Not just the sex, which, okay, is also better, but this: Brittany next to her, long and lean, only in her bra and panties, absently brushing crumbs from her abdomen and giggling drunkenly at the television.

    Summary

    On an island like Wilby, and in a time like the 1920's, a local scandal was not easily forgotten. And certainly not if said scandal evolved around people of the Oscar Wilde sort.

    Summary

    Kurt is floating in one corner of the pool, clutching a boogie board across his chest and looking up at the sky. Blaine can't resist doing a couple of laps of the butterfly. When he finishes, grabbing the ledge with one hand and wiping his face with the other, he sees that Kurt is watching him from across the pool.

    “Is there anything you're not good at?”

    Blaine wants to protest, because there're so many things that he's not good at – this thing between them being right at the top of the list. He opens his mouth to say something, but then he catches Kurt's eye, and realizes that Kurt knows that, because Kurt knows him.

     
    Five crushes that didn't work out the way Blaine had hoped they would, and, finally, one that did.

    Summary

    When he wakes up, Billy's gone. Joe's confused for a second, but then he realises that it's fucking Sunday. Groaning, he rolls out of bed and looks for his clothes. His trousers are still wet from yesterday - beer spills or sweat, or both. His shirt's gone. Billy's is lying where Joe threw it after he peeled it off him last night.

    Summary

    Bill's sitting with his legs open, elbows on his knees, hands dangling. Joe's surprised to see that he's smiling to himself. He looks up at Joe, friendly and benevolent like he rarely is.

    "Good night, huh?" he says. His voice is slurred and raw.

    "Yeah." Joe answers, at a loss.

    Summary

    So. It happened the only way it could happen: with Mal out of the picture - busted up in sick bay from another heroic and dumb act - and Jayne and Inara getting themselves drunk enough to move from the melancholy to the morose, and into the straight out maudlin.
