    Summary

    The depth and breadth of Carwood's knowledge of Ron Speirs could fit on the back of a postage stamp. Or possibly the head of a pin. Carwood Lipton is assigned to E Company's new team leader to assist with the transition. Rumours abound.

    A few weeks after the bar, Kocher's down at the Wal-Mart picking up Gatorade and protein bars and socks and underwear. As he swears under his breath and tries to find the socks he likes, another man comes into the aisle.

    "Oh, come on," Doc says. He's got a cart, too. There's a pair of flip flops, a pack of t-shirts, shaving cream, and a pack of razors. Kocher can't remember, as he stares at Doc and tries not to flinch, if Doc had his fuck-you mustache at the bar or not. He doesn't have it now, and Kocher feels like he lost something.

    "Hey," Kocher says, trying to sound casual. "Fancy meeting you here."

    "Uh-huh," Doc says, all suspicion. He leaves his cart behind Kocher, walks over and grabs a pack of socks. His arm passes in front of Kocher's chest. He's in short sleeves, and Kocher stares at his forearm and wants to touch it.

    "I'm just buying socks," Kocher says, and it comes out angry. Who the fuck does Doc think he is? He's not some creep following his not-actually-ex around a fucking Wal-Mart. He shops at this Wal-Mart all the time. Half of fucking base shops at this Wal-Mart. Kocher could shout "Ooh-Rah!" and probably get thirty people to respond back like some fucked up version of Marco Polo.

    "Sure," Doc says, and it is not fair he doesn't get angry in his voice when he's pissed off.

    "I am," Kocher snaps in a whisper. "You are not so goddamn interesting I have to stalk your ass to feel fulfilled."

    "That guy I was with at the bar," Doc says without lowering his voice, "he decided I wasn't on the market when he saw the way you looked at him." He turns to walk away, and Kocher reaches out and grabs his arm, above the wrist, right over the hard line of tendon in Kocher's forearm. "You will get your fucking hand off of me or you won't get it back," Doc says.

    Kocher clenches tighter before he drops his hand. "Shit. Tim. I didn't--"

    "You wanna talk about your fucked up, in-the-closet feelings, get a shrink," Doc says. "It's not my goddamn job to fix you."

    Yurio looks like he's going to spit nails. He huffs, yanks the forks from Yuuri's hands, and scurries away.

    "He took both forks," Viktor says like he's falling in love. "Where is Otabek? Can you see him?"

    Yuuri laughs and shakes his head. "I can't."

    Viktor shrugs. "Oh, well." He turns to Yuuri, smile soft and face bright. He holds up his champagne flute. "To your beautiful program and hard work. Congratulations."

    Yuuri taps his champagne flute to Viktor's. "And to your coaching and return to skating."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “John,” he says so quietly it barely carries, “would you get on your knees for me?”

    He should say yes and stay standing, John thinks, but he kneels instead because it feels right. His hands come to rest on Harold’s legs, just above his knees. He doesn’t look away from Harold’s face.

    “Oh,” Harold breathes. “I didn’t expect…” He trails off and touches John’s jaw. John turns into it without shame. Closes his eyes to concentrate on the touch. “It really was meant to be a question, not an order.”

    “I want to take orders from you,” John says. “I trust you to take care of me, Harold.”

    “You need someone to take care of you,” Harold says, wry. “You need a mission,” He continues, serious again. “You need orders. But you also need to trust that both of those are coming from a place of trust and respect. I will always give you those.”

    “I know,” John murmurs, opening his eyes and looking at Harold before kissing Harold’s palm.

    “John,” Harold’s voice is shaky, “if you say yes right now, I will never allow you to get away from me.”

    “You’d have allowed it before?” John asks, leaning forward just enough to bite lightly at the tendons in Harold’s wrist.

    “No,” Harold admits. “But this is different. You are not just an asset for me to lose. You are…” Harold’s breath is shuddery when he breathes in. “John, if you decide to leave after this, I will let you. I will. But you won’t recognize what’s left of me.”

    “Harold,” John says, tipping back his head so he can see Harold’s eyes. “Just tell me what to do.”

    A closed door only gets them so much freedom, but Lewis loves to push a line. He leans in quick and pecks Dick on the mouth. “I want one of the raspberry ones,” he says as he pulls away.

    Dick glances at the closed door. He taps his fingers on the desk, then picks up a macaroon and turns it over his fingers like a coin “Well, I’ll half this one with you,” he offers, and bites down on the edge.

    Lewis meets him halfway, laughing and shaking his head. “And they say you’re the straight-laced one,” he says as he pulls away, licking raspberry cream from the corner of his mouth.

    “Well, I used to be,” Dick replies. “Then I met you.”

    “Lucky you,” Lewis says.

    “Yeah,” Dick says with that same sincerity as before, “lucky me.”

    “I gotta go,” Lewis says, taking a step back. “Don’t eat them all at once.”

    “I’ll save you a couple,” Dick replies.

    I love you, too, Lewis thinks. He walks backwards all the way to the door just to catch one more grin from Dick before he goes.

    (The flipside to jannika's Honesty will wreck this point that we made. Jay/Carlos, a little bit of implied Ben/Carlos, background mentions of canon Ben/Mal, Evie/Chad, and Evie/Doug.)

    Summary

    Bookstore AU. At Survey Books, 27 year old Marco Bodt is lucky enough to be friends with everyone he works with, until grade-A jerk Jean Kirchstein transfers from another store, and in spite of his bad attitude, Marco can’t seem to help but fall for him. Too bad Jean is oblivious and/or just plain stubborn, and everyone else thinks this is Marco’s worst idea ever. But in retail, you end up spending a lot of time with your coworkers regardless of what you want, and Marco will do his best to make every interaction with Jean count until they get somewhere. Or at least until Jean gets less awful.

    Summary

    Over the next couple weeks, Webster realizes that Liebgott has effortlessly invaded every corner of his life. Even on the days when he barely sees Liebgott at all, he can always find comic books or packs of cigarettes lying around somewhere. It’s almost disconcerting how ordinary it’s beginning to feel to stumble upon someone else’s belongings in his own house.

    Jack, who never seems to have any office work of any description to do, has his feet up on Mac's desk and has been bouncing a little rubber ball off the wall for the past half an hour or so when he says, "So I was thinking."

    "Always dangerous."

    "Hardy har har. We should go out."

    "This is so sudden."

    "Buttmunch. We should go out and, y'know, drink, soak up the nightlife, get laid. Ooh, we could karaoke."

    "You do know that karaoke isn't a verb, right? And did you just call me buttmunch?"

    "I call it like I see it. No, but seriously. After our luck recently, it'd be good for us. Take our minds off things. Have a little goddamn fun. You could let down your beautiful golden hair. I happen to make an awesome wingman."

    "You're a terrible wingman. Remember that time in Geneva?"

    Jack pauses in throwing the ball. He takes a breath to speak and holds up a finger to make his point, then thinks better of it, shuts his mouth and retracts the finger. "Okay, I'll give you that one. But I don't speak German. How the hell was I to know?"

    "She was Norwegian, and there are some things a man just knows."

    "There are some things a man has to experience before he knows how to know them."

    Grantaire leans against the edge of the door and looks out at him in bemusement. "You're the smartest man I know, Enjolras. I know your memory isn't this bad."

    Enjolras's smile fades away to a bewildered frown. "What?"

    "They're out again. They're always out on Thursdays. It's date night. I know you know this, I've only told you half a dozen times. And yet you keep showing up."

    Summary

    Goodnight liked to say that they met in a bar fight, that he watched Billy take down a gang or sometimes even the whole bar with a single knife or just his hairpin or naught but his two hands. The story changed a little each time he told it. It was never how it actually happened, but it was how Goodnight liked to tell it, so Billy never amended it.

    He knew why Goodnight didn’t like to tell it how it had been. They both did. But if Goodnight needed to pretend something else, if that helped him to cope, then Billy sure as hell wasn’t going to remind him of something different.

    There had been a bar fight, at least.

    noun:
    - the powdery residue left after the burning of a substance.
    - the remains of something destroyed; ruins.

    Present Billy Rocks with his path set in stone, and he’d probably just reach into his belt for a knife and carve a new destiny right out.

    Summary

    Billy sits him down on the side of the bed and starts to undress him, hands so gentle that it's hard to believe how good they are at death. He works slow and methodical. In a quick-draw he's like the flare of a match, spark and then fire, but now he's taking his time, unbuttoning Goody's waistcoat, getting him down to shirtsleeves.

    "Puritan," Goody says.

    "Someone had to carry you back."
