    Summary

    When they drop out of the hurtling nightmare of the wormhole, everything blends into nausea and the scream of alarms, the stars smearing into concentric loops outside their Lions.

    Keith grits his teeth, hauling helplessly at controls that were already damaged even before they got thrown out of the hangar, across the universe and back into space again. Arms and shoulders straining, muttering constantly under his breath, he tries to get any real response from his Lion, but the connection’s been reduced to just a faint wavering spark, like a candle about to go out.

    Finally Shiro brings his own Lion around and physically stops Keith’s uncontrolled spin. His voice sputters in over the com. “This is no good. We’re gonna have to find someplace to set down.”

    Summary

    “It is hard to keep the truth from clever friends,” Dumbledore had said, first. “I had hoped --”

    Remus had looked down at his hands. There were little, half-moon scars around his knuckles, too inconsequential to see unless light hit them at an angle and made them silvery with scar tissue. He wondered if other werewolves had these scars too, whether they were a telltale sign too mundane to have made it into the textbooks.

    Remus had hoped, too.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    James had always been so lighthearted about his dislike of the Slug Club, and of Slughorn himself that Remus almost felt it was a joke, until one night when James was tutoring Remus for his potions OWL, long after lights out. Slughorn still wouldn't even look at him, and he was hopelessly behind. James had said, angrier almost than Remus had ever heard him, "I'll never forgive him for the way he treats you."

    Summary

    This is how the world actually works: instead of leading soldiers into battle, Shang is given command over a disorganized bunch of conscripted civilians who don't know the business end of a sword. Instead of fighting to defend China, he is stuck training these misfits into something resembling soldiers. And instead of being devoted to a wife or his job as a soldier, he is becoming attracted to one of his men.

    Summary

    Bill didn’t have the heart to tell Jim that it snowed in Italy—nor remind him that London at Christmastime last year had been miserable and rainy, not a speck of snow dusting not a single street through most of December and into the new year. He chose instead to celebrate that Jim had gotten his wish granted two times over by Bill’s reckoning. This was Christmas. And there was certainly a lot of snow outside. Besides, Bill suspected Jim knew this all already and was merely cementing with words what he wanted to be true so he could then call it the truth. Better that than accept the truth as that which was actually true, spoken or not.

    “Bill?” Jim asked eventually, pristine fingernails tapping against his glass.

    “Jim,” Bill answered, tone and accent momentarily matching Jim’s. He crossed his legs and peered at Jim, smiling fondly at the blush blooming across his cheeks, so unexpectedly becoming on such an otherwise masculine man. Bill didn’t usually prefer the suggestion of innocence, of shame, of embarrassment. But for Jim, he made an exception. He would continue to make exceptions for Jim until he couldn’t any longer.

    Bill didn’t know what he would do at that point. He’d probably continue to make exceptions for Jim. If only in his mind.

    "Maybe we need a break," Rusty said, his voice muffled by the pillow.

    "I had one. Eighteen months in the federal pen," Danny answered.

    "That's not a break, that's appropriate sanctions." Rusty cracked open an eye and peered at him. "When I wake up, we are getting a map. And then we're taking a drive."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The new head of the Institution stops by for tea. Lady Amier is short, round and smiles like she knows all the answers and will kill you if she thinks you know them too. She brings the greetings of the new Democratically Elected Council and their gratitude for saving the world and removing the vile dictatorship of the monarchy, etc etc.

    No one is quite sure who elected the Democratically Elected Council, but their insistence on the name suggests someone must have had a say. Lady Amier would like them to know that the council very much appreciates their decision to stay away from politics and stresses heavily that it would be for everyone’s benefit for this arrangement to continue. The world needs stable governance, not heroes.

    They could object. Ballister plotted a thousand ways to become king before he gained the goodwill of the common people, and now his nemesis walks with a limp and has to turn his head to look left there would be no one to stop him.

    But he doesn’t. He says a polite goodbye at the door then returns to the sofa and they watch a documentary on nature, and change the channel when it starts talking about sharks.

    They are not forgotten, but they are glossed over. The ‘unfortunate incident’ that claimed half the city is something to be ‘put behind us’ as we ‘enter a new period of peace and prosperity.’

    Summary

    "There are rules, Nimona.”

    “What do you mean, there are rules?” Nimona throws her hands up in exasperation. Her face is twisted into it’s ‘I do not understand these morals of which you speak’ scowl. “If it’s already happened to you, why would you follow the rules? And besides, isn’t that the whole point of tenure? That you don’t have to follow the rules, anymore?”

    or

    That modern academia AU where Nimona doesn't understand why Professor Blackheart cares about silly things like departmental regulations or 'right and wrong' because he has rules that he lives by or some boring nonsense. Nimona really doesn't know why he and Professor Goldenloin haven't managed to pull their heads out of their asses and hook up, already. Does she have to do everything around here?

    They’re so different. Steve’s so confident, so brash: he’s gorgeous and he knows it. Jonathan’s the opposite of confident: an outsider, an artist, an observer of people. It would be a clash of worlds.

    Nancy’s heart is pounding.

    "Everything seems like a movie sometimes," she says.

    It's not clear if she's talking to one of the boys, or both, or to herself, but that's definitely a capital-E Everything. Steve hands Jonathan the gun and goes to meet Nancy halfway, rubs his hands over her arms to warm her up. "Hey, no offense," he says, "but in a movie I'd be a better shot than you."

    Summary

    Danny and Rusty. Their names are always said together and Rusty knows that's how it'll always be. They're partners.

    Not in the way he wants, and he feels bad for wanting more, wanting what Danny can't give. It doesn't change the way Rusty feels, but the way he feels doesn't change the way things are, either.

    Apparently Rusty's not as good at reading Danny as he thought.

    He doesn't get to the kiss part. They don't get to the celebration part, because instead of champagne and terrible movies there's a fucking knife wound in Danny’s right shoulder and Rusty’s already threatened three people with a viciousness he didn't realize he had.

     

    This is probably Danny’s fault, but they count cards, not who's at fault. He grimaces a bit as he works at Danny’s shoulder gently.

    Danny picked up the note and unfolded it.

    Danny,
    Get him arrested and I will get you arrested and you will not be cellmates, I assure you.

    Take him out for dinner. It's the least you can do before sleeping with him and he's probably been living off of Chinese takeaway since I left.

    -Isabel
    Danny re-folded the note and set it down on the coffee table where he'd found it. They both sat and looked at it, then Danny nodded.
    "Right. The lady says I should buy you dinner."

    "Such a gentleman," Rusty said, finishing his beer and leaving the bottle. "I want a steak. Let's go."

    The sight of the customs line, swollen and still, puts a damper on his spirits. Still, he’s upright instead of caged; they join the line, and Fabian divides his attention between stretching his stiff muscles, posing for selfies with a trio of giggling fans, and avoiding Marcel’s attempts to steal his phone out of his jacket pocket. (Fabian still remembers the time he was convinced he’d left his phone in a sushi restaurant in Japan, and Marcel let him go all the way back to the restaurant before confessing. Never again. Also, the pictures Marcel takes while he’s in possession of people’s phones are brain-scarring.
