    The one thing they realized early on, about this relationship they figured out between all three of them, is that there was no fucking way they could live together.

    Summary

    It's actually a day off. Not the "well, technically I can drink now but call me if something goes down," kind of day off, or the "what was that thing about max overtime again?" kind of day off. Actual, mandated, "if you try to enter we will bar the doors," HR-glowering kind of day off.

    Summary

    They had never planned to be completely disconnected, but they had both given themselves over and over and over again to their work. Months went by, and the only person they talked to other than the Mounties and the clerk at the Post Office was Mahir. Even that was decidedly analogue, postcards relayed through proxies in other cities. They didn't want to put Mahir in a position to know anything, for all they wanted to keep him aware that they were alive, and safe.

    Summary

    Dance was, at first, something all the girls did in school, part of poise and exercise and the shiny brochure for prospective parents. But Emily grew to love it, loved the technique of ballet and the emotion of jazz. She lost herself in it, in the pound and flutter of her heartbeat, in the surety of her center of gravity.

    Summary

    For all the policing Peter'd had to do over the holidays, including his personal favorite--Boxing Day, or Laying-About-the-House-Watching-Cartoons Day, as he preferred to think of it--he magically got New Year's off. "Magically" in the metaphorical rather than literal sense, for once.

    Summary

    David had half a mind to turn the phone off, seek food and water and start planning how to get through Gath to some more friendly place, but as his thumb hovered over the "off" button, a light from the broken window caught his eye. It was a butterfly, gold and black.

    A shocked breath punched out of his chest, and the phone nearly fumbled from his fingers. He closed his eyes for a moment, heart pounding. "Okay," he whispered. "Message received."

    Summary

    The thing about cable news is that you don't really get a break. They're not the fucking Daily Show: no three weeks off at Christmas after two weeks off at Thanksgiving, and a summer break on top of that.

    News keeps going, keeps generating more news, and that's the origin of way too many pithy phrases for anyone's comfort. That summer, the summer after they secured their show, after they found some leverage, Will decides to take a vacation.

    Summary

    "Where's my phone?" she asked, scanning the room. "I'll call and tell him to come over right now, we can do this whole thing like you both haven't been playing chicken for fifteen years."

    Duke looked alarmed and tightened his hand on her calf. "Uh, no?" he said. "No, no, and also, no. There will be no calling of Nathan Wuournos tonight, or any other night that involves your compromised judgement."

    She grinned at him. "You like my compromised judgement," she said, and was rewarded with his flush.

    Summary

    Alicia smiled to herself as she closed her briefcase; it was only a couple of years ago now that the week of Christmas would have meant cooking, baking, organizing child care among the PTA and going caroling through the neighborhood. She had loved that life, loved being so present with her children and a fixture in her community. But she didn't miss it--whatever had happened when Peter brought scandal to their family, the few friends who still stayed in touch or bothered with the occasional email, it was part of her past. It wasn't even cause for nostalgia, not anymore. Alicia liked being a person with a briefcase a bit more than she'd liked being a person with a bundt cake.

    Kalinda wasn't sure what turned on Lana more: the idea that Kalinda would say no and Lana had to work to convince her otherwise; or the idea that Kalinda would say yes and Lana would get her satisfaction.

    Summary

    "Here you are, ma'am," Jenny said, as careful and prim as if a dozen watching eyes were upon them. Vastra quashed a smile, choosing instead to take a sip of her tea. Lady Grey, with the dash of arsenic that gave it such a pleasant spice to the tongue. Jenny was so terribly good to her.
