    Summary

    For Zach's 34th birthday, J.J. Abrams give him the reins of the Star Trek reboot franchise and tells Zach to give him a script, a cast, and a shooting schedule by the end of the summer. Not to be left out, Chris helps out by turning the original screenwriters' swamp of notes into a shooting script and John takes over casting duties. Despite three months of whining, cereal, sighing, whining, and cross-country banter, they might just manage to get this movie together and make something new of their careers.

    Set during the summer of 2011.

    Summary

    Kaidan finds he just can't forget Shepard, no matter how hard he tries -- to the intense annoyance of the people around him. What with the Reaper threat on the one hand, Cerberus breathing down his neck on the other, and his deteriorating L2 chip starting to fuck with his ability to think straight, he finds himself facing serious questions about what he wants out of life. Is it worth it to keep following around Shepard's ghost?

    It's probably not, right?

    ...Right?

    Summary

    They've learned to cope as best they can--a human being can get used to anything. But nights get lonely, and thoughts of blood and guilt and fear feel like a burden clogging their heads, but sound like solidarity when they're unloaded to a friend. Because although this is business, it's hard not to feel something for the people who save your life on a daily basis. So they reach for each other's comfort when they're drowning, breathe in each other's soothing words and hold each other so they won't be swept away.

    But this time, Michael's not there to rescue Ray.
    --
    Drabbles about how the crew members help each other cope, followed by Ray and Michael finding comfort in each other when the job gets to be too much for them.

    Summary

    "Seriously, did Gavin shit on your couch again or something? Jesus. You've been avoiding each other for the last two days and it's driving me nuts."

    "But Geoff-"

    "Listen, I don't care. Whatever it was, just. Fucking kiss and make up already, you assholes."

    No one's debating that last weekend was stupid. Too much alcohol and not enough prior thought went into it. But it happened, and now she's kissed her and he's kissed him and it's taken a few days to get things sorted out but.
    Maybe it wasn't so bad of an idea after all?
    Maybe this could turn into something good?

    Follow up to "A Deal's a Deal", which can stand alone, but this doesn't make much sense without it for context.
