    Summary

    Enjolras swallowed. "I didn't know he had tattoos on his back."

    "Yeah," said Joly, shrugging. "I mean, he lives with me and before about noon, he's allergic to shirts—"

    "Why—" said Enjolras weakly.

    "I always figured he had a bad shirt experience," Joly offered. "Shirts killed his family, or his first dog got hit by a truck full of shirts."

    Enjolras shook his head. His face was a little flushed.

    "Ooh, are you experiencing symptoms?" said Joly, brightening. "What's your pulse doing? Are you breathing normally? How do your glands feel?"

     

    Inspired in part by tumblr user feferi's post here, specifically: "i am in love with the idea that enjolras is so baffled by his own emotions towards grantaire that he legitimately cannot tell if he has heartburn or stomach butterflies"

    Modern AU. Joly is a gentleman, a scholar, a med student—and, when need be, a matchmaker. And oh, the need is definitely being.

    Summary

    “You seem distressed, my angel. Are you not pleased with the match? The word from court is that Lord James Barnes is an upstanding gentleman, not given to the wild circles around the Prince Regent. And Steve, it was he who asked for you. The young man has kept you in mind all these years -- despite our circumstances.”

    Summary

    There’s a clatter and Stiles looks over the girl’s shoulder to find a guy standing behind her. He’s wearing an apron, dark to match the rest of the shop, darker still all down the middle where there’s a coffee stain spreading rapidly. He's staring at Stiles with wide blue-green eyes, and when Stiles meets his gaze he opens his mouth, closes his mouth, and then turns tail and disappears into what Stiles assumes is the kitchen.

    Which is a little weird.

    It’s not exactly the first time anyone has purposefully avoided him, but Stiles usually knows those people and they usually have a good excuse. This guy? Stiles doesn’t recognise this guy from Adam. Although he certainly wouldn’t mind roleplaying Steve.

    A self-indulgent coffeeshop au turned into Laura/Stiles bromance turned into prom fic.

    Summary

    “I’m going to regret asking this but for the sake of my sanity…are you by chance ill?” Napoleon queried taking a cautious step closer. He kept himself out of striking distance because Illya’s temperament was legendary for a reason and it wasn’t a good reason either.

    “If you do not leave, I will skin you alive,” Illya managed and Napoleon would’ve attempted to act suitably scared if Illya’s voice hadn’t cracked in the middle of his threat. As it was all he managed was something that sounded suspiciously like a coo.

    Summary

    "Why didn't you, then?" she asks, a reasonable question, and he turns his face towards the window, watches the Valencian night rush by.

    "I was distracted," he says.

    She is quiet for a while.

    "Distracted by whom?" she finally asks, and he keeps his eyes on the window.

    "I do not know." It is a lie, and he is sure that Gaby knows it is a lie, but she is kind enough not to point that out.
