    Summary

    He drives home slowly, thinking over Derek’s words. Derek does have a point, but Zero refuses to concede. He might not always know what he’s doing, but he likes to think that he takes extra care with Jude. He makes sure to put his clothes in the hamper, to wash the dishes, to not flirt with anyone, to kiss Jude whenever he can, and even though he knows it doesn’t make up for the shit that he’s put Jude through in the past, Jude makes him want to be a better person.

    Summary

    Billy smirks at him, white teeth glinting: “Finish up, why don’t you? You’re making me regret choosing you to cheat off, King Steve-”

    “Don’t. Call. Me. That.”

    “Okay....” Billy says, mock sweet. “How about... princess?”

    (Or: Steve doesn't know if he hates or loves the pet names; all he knows is that Billy confuses him.)

    Summary

    “What?” Billy sits up, blearily rubbing his eyes with the fingers of one hand.

    “Downstairs.” Steve grips Billy’s bicep. “I heard something.”

    Sure enough, the sound of glass smashing on the hardwood floors downstairs makes them both freeze.

    Billy waits a moment before reacting. “Where’s your baseball bat?”

    “Under the bed.”

    Billy scrambles out of bed and pulls on his underwear. “Stay here, ok?” He fumbles under the bed and retrieves the bat with the nails, giving it a practise swing.

    “I’m not letting you go alone,” Steve snorts, pulling a t-shirt over his head (Billy’s t-shirt, he realises as he smells the cigarette smoke). He’s fought monsters more terrifying than any intruder they could come across and there’s no way in hell he’s letting Billy go without backup.

    “Stay behind me, Princess,” is all Billy says in reply; a whispered compromise.

    Summary

    Amis House might not be the biggest student co-op, or the fanciest, but it's got something all its own. Specifically, smoke damage on the kitchen ceiling from that time Courfeyrac lit a political pamphlet on fire.

    In which there are secrets, pining, pancakes, and revelations, and sometimes the shortest distance between three points is not a triangle but a circle.
