    Summary

    The storyteller pauses and stares mournfully into the flickering hearth. “I miss him, boy. He was the best Nemesis a devil like me could ask for.” The boy attempts to make himself the picture of understanding, in case his input is required. At the same time, he eases out from under the Pirate’s arm and slides backwards, until caught in place by a loud creak. The Pirate’s gaze remains fastened on a distant, sparkling past, and he takes a breath to continue.

    “My Nemesis was the bravest, most noble Commander that ever put a sextant to the horizon!"

    (Notes: Barrett's Privateers is heavily referenced, but the characters are from Hark! A Vagrant.)

    Summary

    Enjolras presses his lips together. He already looks pained, and Grantaire hasn't even opened his mouth yet. That's got to be a record, even for them.

    "I need a favor," he says at last.

    "With what?" says Grantaire. "Ooh, are you forming a cult? Can I join? I'd be awesome at cults, I just know it." He ticks off his qualifications on his fingers. "I love chanting, I look great in robes—"

    (High school AU. Grantaire the disaffected stoner is pulled into a cause bigger than himself. Or: in which there are pretend boyfriends for great justice.)

    Summary

    She came in at two o'clock, between the lunch rush and the end-of-the-day rush just like usual, but Emily still felt the thrill of excitement crawl up the back of her neck when she spotted the familiar coppery hair and red lipstick a few people back in line.
