    Summary

    Steve's rarely been touched in a way that didn't equate to some kind of hurt. The cold metal of a stethoscope against his frail chest or the sting of a needle drawing yet another blood sample, when he was a sickly child. The bone-shattering punches thrown by the neighborhood bullies on the playground, or by his own father at home, drunk and wild. His mother, weak and clutching at him as she grew more incoherent with the drugs as the cancer ate away at her insides. Touch was something he shied away from, something he told himself he just didn't want.

    Except...he did. He just didn't know how.

    Until he finds a flyer for a local "affection and intimacy services" program.

    In which Steve learns how to become comfortable with touch, and there is one very good dog, and a slow-burn romance.

    Summary

    The Soldier should not be standing here, in the middle of a crowded room with obstructed exits, risking discovery with every second he remains rooted to the spot -- but.

    But. He'd had to know.

    Summary

    “When was the last time someone went down on you?” Lydia asks, once she’s satisfied with the dark bruise she’s bitten on the top swell of Allison’s breast. She won’t be able to wear low cut shirts for a while, that’s for sure.

    “Are you offering?” Allison counters, quirking an eyebrow at Lydia.

    Summary

    The trouble with approaching your relationship the same way you approached your at-times contentious friendship is that apparently, no one realizes you’re actually dating. Or else Enjolras and Grantaire just have the absolute most oblivious of friends.

    Or both.
