    Summary

    In the Shire, hobbits say: “What lovely weather we're having.” They also stir their teacups for four and a half clockwise rotations, place their left elbow seven-eighths down the way of the arm rest, and sniffle pointedly, which roughly translates to: “This tea is over-steeped and bland, your furniture is both uncomfortable and horrifically tasteless, and you're a twit of a host.”
    And I think that's beautiful.

    (Hobbitish is a language of manners and etiquette; the dwarves don't even know that Hobbitish is a thing; and Bilbo is trying to keep a straight face while the Company unintentionally sexually propositions him and challenges him to pie-eating contests to the death.)

    Actions speak so much louder than words.

    Summary

    There's bad blood between them, drying on her knives and under his claws. But Allison sees how Scott touches Isaac's shoulder, his elbow, his hip, and she stands closer, when Isaac has good days. She smiles at him and asks him to join her and Scott when they study, and she lets his long silences pass by.

    Isaac's smile is a small, wry thing, but it makes Allison's chest go tight and funny.

    “I don’t like it,” Vince said.

    “Why would you like it?” Dom said. “There’s nothing to like about it. But if there’s a better way for us to get water, I’m waiting to hear about it.”

    Summary

    Jane’s hair is in a messy ponytail, and ink is smudged along her left cheekbone. She sucks her bottom lip in for just a second when she punches the tack through the flyer to the corkboard below. Before Darcy can even be tempted by the prospect of storm chasing, she thinks, “Oh, yeah. I could stand to follow her around for awhile.”

    Summary

    "Hierarchical triple systems comprise a close binary and a more distant component." - www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

    ---

    Darcy’s been cagey in regards to the whole 'bi' topic, because it’s complicated. Or, okay, people think it’s complicated, but it really isn't and she doesn't want to handle the barrage of inevitable questions.

    Especially not from Jane, who asks questions like it’s her job (which it kinda is) and might cotton on to the fact that Darcy thinks she’s hot. Like, 'Jodie Foster in Contact' hot, except without the interstellar daddy issues.

    (Later, Darcy will remember this thought and laugh and laugh. And maybe also want to cry.)

    Three weeks after the plane crash, Brian sat down on the beach next to him, threw another empty coconut into the water, and said, “All right, come on. Other side of the island and back, have to get one of the mangos on the eastern beach on the way. Winner gets to fuck the loser.”

    “We going to get somewhere anytime soon?” Dom said.

    Brian was staring out the windshield. “Do you trust me?”

    “What the fuck kind of question is that?” Dom said.

    “If you say yes, I’m going to take you on the worst fucking ride of your life,” Brian said. “Do you trust me?”

    “Sit down,” the doctor said. He took blood, three vials filling up dark red. “Any medical conditions?”

    “No,” Dom said, and then his mouth kept going and said, “What if I want to volunteer for bonding?”

    The doctor peered at him over the glasses. “Do you want to volunteer for bonding?”

    It hung in the air. Dom felt it like a noose around his throat, squeezing. Twenty-five to life. “Yeah,” he said.

    The boast is all they remember of her mother these days. Not the clear-eyed, careful debates; not the joy that lingered in Joppa throughout Queen Cassiopeia’s reign; certainly not the fact that she had a daughter who she loved for more than her beauty.

    Summary

    As it stands, they've become each other's support systems, which in their case ultimately means they have no secrets from each other, and also they spend an inordinate amount of time getting drunk together when they're in London and off-duty. Possibly it means other things as well, but Roxy likes to spread out her world-shattering personal revelations over a longer period of time, thank you very much.

    And yet—well.

    "You, Eggsy Unwin," she hears herself saying in a pub one night, her voice gin-soaked and coming out lopsided, "are my best friend."

    The Outsider says, “I will give you a name, as I did for Daud. I do not play favorites, Corvo, but I’m interested to see which future you will choose when you realize how easily it could have all fallen apart, no matter how hard you tried or how many despots you ruined.”

    Corvo’s tempted to ask why are you doing this even though he already knows the answer. 

    “Find Delilah.”
