    Summary

    Breathe in, out. Fold up every nasty emotion, worry, and distraction. Reduce to only the most essential.

    A billionaire's art gallery. A seduction job gone wrong. And a heist that refuses to stay on track.

    Peter Nureyev's evening starts off bad, and rapidly progresses to worse as he attempts to navigate his feelings for Juno Steel and a crippling sense of inadequacy while doing his absolute least favorite thing during a mission: improvising.

    Summary

    “Darling,” Buddy began after a moment. “Is there something I should worry about with my heart?”

    “Nothing new,” Vespa shrugged. “Why?”

    “Well, I thought I ought to be a little worried with my doctor spending so much time listening to it.”

    The same sweet smile that threatened to tie Buddy’s metallic ventricles into a knot blessed Vespa’s face again.

    “I’m not listening to your heart as your doctor, Bud,” she yawned. “I’m listening as your wife. Just ‘cause you’re real, and I don’t ever wanna forget that. You’re alive, I’m alive. Looks like we made it.”

    Summary

    “Super Steel, there’s literally no way you say the ‘yev’ part of it like that,” Ben had teased too many times for his own good. “You stick out the second beat, not the first one.”

    “Who the hell would say Nureyev like that? I think I’d know how to say my own soulmate’s name or whatever,” Juno would huff in return, time and time again. “It’s got an uh in the middle.”

    “An uh? Can I get that in a sentence?”

    “Uh, my brother’s an idiot.”

    Summary

    “Vespa, he’s burning up.”

    “Yeah, having a fever will do that to you,” Vespa replies, rifling through a cabinet, fingers brushing over medicine before she lands on a bottle.

    “Juno? Juno darling?” Nureyev says softly, jostling the ex-detective just so. He mumbles something unintelligible, blood-shot eye opening for a split-second, before shutting again. “He isn’t lucid. Vespa, he…”

    Nureyev trails off. He can feel the emotion wavering with each word, the way he sounds so desperate. For years, he’s trained himself against this behavior; to burry and hide so much as a hint of emotion. Vulnerability is just another word for weak, and Peter Nureyev is not weak.

    But… seeing Juno like this, feverish and trembling, not in his right mind at all, it’s as though decades of caution and staying guarded completely melt away. He can’t allow himself to behave this way, especially in front of Vespa of all people.

    And yet, he can’t seem to stop.

    Summary

    Hyperion City was the kind of place where rain hung in the air for days after the fact, leaving the city streets glistening and the city lights reflected in a thousand dying parodies of neon hues. The sidewalks ached a deep, slate gray and fog liked to slink around corners and settle in back alleys and nip at your heels. For better or for worse, a lot of people called it home.

    It was just the rotten luck of Juno Steel, private eye, that he was included in that number.

    Summary

    Regardless of the season, those streaks of honeyed light, laid across the cold stone hall in the gentle stripes of a worker bee, were vignettes of summer, each preserved like a flower pressed into a love letter. Buddy’s hair would toss in the gentle breeze like fire and her sword’s glint would bear its teeth and even if she tried something a little too flashy and lost the fight against her tutor, she would receive her reprimanding with a held-back grin.

    Every time, Vespa’s mentor would call for her again, and every time, Vespa would peel herself from the window feeling a little too enthusiastic about a set of chores that should have been drudgery.

    Summary

    “But a girl’s gotta know,” Rita finished. “Where the heck were you? Where the heck are you? Are you alive? I mean, we talked about you being alive, even though you didn’t confirm that you weren’t some kind of phone zombie, which you sound like you could be, but—”

    Juno broke her off with a phrase he hadn’t said since his wedding day and hadn’t meant in two decades.

    “Rita, you’re fired.”

    Summary

    Buddy Aurinko was the kind of woman who never ceased to amaze Vespa, be it with her wit or strategy or sheer force of resolve. She was the kind of woman who could stare down the barrel of death and spit in its face. She wore a ruby red grin the way a snake wore a rattle and the prettiest pair of pistols Vespa had ever seen, each inlaid with gold and enamel and half as lovely as the woman who bore one on each hip.

    Buddy was the kind of outlaw sheriffs dreaded and troubadours exalted. Carriages slowed down at the sight of her, knowing well they could only outrun her for so long. If lawmen didn’t see the barrel of her gun, they saw her as the reason they turned in their badges. Some even said the reasons trains rattled on the rails was because they were chattering their teeth in fear of the woman they knew was bound to rob them at some point or another.

    Summary

    Juno had known Nureyev long enough to know that their mission, entering a party and ingratiating themselves to the wealthy host, was the least of his problems. Once Peter swallowed his pride and went over to talk to him, Juno knew the mission would be completed in a heartbeat. Nureyev was charming and charismatic and a breath of fresh air in any crowd.

    Rather, the issue lay in the cargo shorts.

    Summary

    “Oh, darling,” Peter breathed, muffled behind his hand.

    Nureyev hadn’t called him ‘darling’ once since their reunion.

    “Nureyev, I—”

    “Something awful must have happened to my memory, Juno,” he cut Juno off before he could utter another word. Even with his head buried in the crook of Juno’s neck, he seemed to worship the name, as if every moment in which it hung in the air just past his lips was a blessed one. “God, I thought you left me. I thought I had awoken alone in that dreadful room and you had gone during the night.”

    Summary

    The melody smelled like the wafting scent of flowers from somewhere near and tasted like cool, spring air upon his tongue. Nureyev has a feeling it would sound best with birdsong and the faint, distant buzz of a public square. The melody was as sweet as it was melancholic, a taste of nostalgia, bottled and fermented and distilled to just the right potency to make his chest ache and his heart stop dead in its tracks.

    “Juno,” he began.“When you looked in my head, what did you see?”

    Summary

    Nureyev, or Ransom, as he was currently known, was the kind of man who never felt more alive than with a great expanse of desert before him and a great expanse of sky above, each whizzing their way alongside him as gunfire clanged and crashed and screamed in his ears.

    Summary

    There were two things Nureyev wanted more than anything in this world, and of course, neither of them were remotely feasible.

    First, if he could only open his mouth and let that horrible secret sitting upon his chest become a burden for the both of them to share, perhaps his detective’s sharp mind might find an angle of escape he had never considered. Perhaps he might not hate him for the plan that ate away at the back of his mind at all hours.

    Second, he wanted nothing more than to stay.

    Summary

    Peter Nureyev had made a career out of knowing exactly when to stay out of things. If any particular mess were left behind after his crimes, it was never his problem to deal with, so long as none of that mess carried a trace of anything more than an alias he would shed like a coat. If he had to simplify his line of work to three steps, he entered, he meddled, and then he disappeared.

    However, it didn’t take a private investigator to know that in certain matters he wanted to stay out of, he should not meddle at all. Such was the case of Rita and Juno’s prank war.

    Summary

    Now it was time for Nureyev’s eyes to bulge. He jumped back an (honestly impressive) distance from the imposter, who he was realizing now was not an imposter at all, but Juno’s twin brother. His twin brother that he had met that morning. He was visiting Juno for their shared birthday and Nureyev had just put a knife to his throat.

    When Ben visits the Carte Blanche for his and Juno’s birthday, he can’t help but notice that his brother’s new boyfriend is kind of a shady character. Naturally, he decides to prank him by dressing as Juno to see if he can tell them apart. Unfortunately, startling Peter Nureyev comes with some...unfortunate consequences.

    Summary

    Peter Nureye- I mean Ransom and Juno Steel are sent on a quick mission together that takes a turn for the comical when they get to their getaway vehicle. (just a funny idea for a situation I had a while back) Just a lot of Peter comedically suffering and Juno teasing him.

    Summary

    It’s the small things, it always is. It starts with the streets, Juno’s always known the streets of Hyperion well, he’s probably spent half his life on these streets and he’s spilt enough blood on them. It’s the streets shifting when he’s in pursuit, a dead-end suddenly splitting open onto the culprit.
    Sometimes, late at night, he breathes with the city, he hears the distant sound of cars honking, a woman crooning to her child, rocking gently back and forth on the balls of her feet. There’s a man at the other end of the city, he can’t catch his breath and Juno reaches counts breaths like Ben used to do with him.

    Summary

    If one were to tell you Juno Steel has a will and he wrote it drunk on a cocktail napkin? It would be hard to even pretend to act surprised. (All with a side of self-deprecation, Peter Nureyev and The Way He Gets Juno Steel Talking, and Juno's not-so-secret love for Rita).
