    Summary

    The Côte d'Azur in September isn’t as crowded as Illya had feared, though it’s still early enough in the month that Cassis is still bustling with foreign tourists, all of them drinking rosé, and all of them in this hotel bar just off the beach — sand, sun, a sea that whispers appeal rather than hypothermia — and being loud, directly at Illya.

    Summary

    It’s not that the words are slow to return to him; it’s just that there are so many more concise ways for Max to communicate his fury, his hunger, his pain and rage. There are so many meanings encapsulated in a snarl, the set of his shoulders, and, right now, the cant of his hips, provocation and pleading.

    Summary

    Napoleon stops looking at Illya, because that just makes him want to put his foot through the wall, and looks at his gun, which isn’t difficult, because it’s about an inch from his face, and this close he can smell the faint sweet spice of cleaning oil. Instead of looking at Illya — the lines of him held in anticipatory stillness; the bulk of him in the blue half-light — Napoleon looks at the balance of gun and silencer, the heavy slide and the curl of Illya’s fingers on the grip, the angle of his thumb, and waits.

    Summary

    “Wait,” Gaby says, and pushes Illya away for a moment, getting up. “Take this off,” she says, and indicates her dress, and turns around; Napoleon unzips it smoothly, and takes it when she pushes it off her shoulders and steps out of it, all solicitous care. “Now sit.”

    Napoleon leaves the dress folded over the foot of the bed, and doesn’t say anything at all. He sits. Illya watches both of them, and Gaby thinks that she’s never seen him like this, so afraid of what he wants. “I’ve never — not with — Gaby,” Illya says, and she thinks, oh.

    Summary

    Sameen finds clarity in the mechanics of surgery. It takes a well-placed ligature to stop the bleeding, a nudge of her finger on the instrument to cauterize a vessel. Cause and effect. Simple.

    Summary

    Tony Stark doesn’t really give a shit about Christmas. I mean, sure, he’ll enjoy a glass of nog, and he’s always thought mistletoe was a great scam, but Christmas is about home and hearth and family and nostalgia and, let’s face it. The Starks had a lot of things, but not a lot for Tony to be nostalgic about.

    This year, however, nostalgia is the name of the game. This year, Tony’s throwing a motherfucking party.

    “Your Royal Highness,” she says. “How lovely to meet you.” Before Harry can return the sentiment, she continues with a wide-eyed gaze at Ms. Knightley. “Wait, fuck, was I supposed to wait for some official introduction? I’ve bollocksed the whole thing up, haven’t I?”

    Halward Pavus hires the Chargers as bodyguards for his estranged son.
    Dorian Pavus is, predictably, not altogether pleased about this. To begin with, at least. He comes around.

    Summary

    “It is not my body that imprisons me,” Maedhros said with a pointed look at the shackles around his wrists.

    Sauron laughed. “You are quite mistaken. Take, for example, the – what is it your people call it? – the blossoming, I believe, is the local term; an interesting metaphor; the Sindar are of course very florally minded. It is most tiresome. Ah, I remember – opening.” He smirked. “Avoiding metaphor altogether, for of course it is an opening. There is the obvious if rather undignified physical action, of course, but what is strange to me is the effect that then has on the spirit – which opens, which yields. Therefore your body compels a subjection not merely to your own flesh but even to the flesh of another – and thus, of course, to the spirit of another. Now that is imprisonment, if you like!”

    Summary

    “Caution in the field isn’t confined to simply an awareness of your surroundings,” Harry says, his tone stern but his breath soft and warm against the back of Eggsy’s hand. His gaze lifts, his eyes hooded as he peers at Eggsy over the rims of his glasses. “You’ve told a lie, Eggsy, and now that lie must be truth.”

    (Or, that time Eggsy scored them a better table by saying it was his and Harry's anniversary and quickly grew to regret it.)
