    Summary

    Mush sat back on his palms and looked up at the sky, staring at the moon. Blink sat next to him, staring at Mush like he was his moon.

    Mush glanced at Blink and smiled, lopsided. “Whaddya lookin’ at?” He said, a little too loudly.

    Blink didn’t mind. He never did. He just smiled and shrugged, stretching his arms out. “I dunno,” he said, making sure he leaned into the moonlight so Mush could see his lips. It was an unconscious thought at this point really.

    ***

    Or, Mush hasn't had an easy life, but when he meets Blink, the world seems a little bit brighter.

    Summary

    “New York’s home, ain’t it?” Race shrugs. “Always has been, always will.”

    Around them, buildings stack up against the horizon, the grimy aftermath of yesterday’s rain staining every wall and surface. “And you don’t want nothin’ more?” Jack says.

    Race stubs out his half-smoked cigarette. “What else is there?”

    Summary

    More and more, she notices things. Katherine puts to memory the way Sarah's face crinkles when she laughs, the way she bites her lip when she's struggling for words or fiddles with the hem of the dress when she's nervous. She notices the little details of her face up close, the little freckles and blemishes that all make her impossibly more fascinating. She notices the way she sputters when she's frustrated, wrings her hands and starts sounding a little more like her brother when she's upset, the way her body absolutely shifts, melting with fondness when she talks about her brothers.

    Katherine notices the way she tries to muffle her smiles, but when they come they're something glorious and when her smile bursts into laughter, something bright and high and heavenly Katherine could swear she could die in that moment of pure happiness.

    Sarah was the best, and first, and real friend she'd ever found and Katherine would always cherish that.

    Summary

    “Don’t touch me,” Race spat, shakily standing himself. “Fuck you, Spot Conlon. Turns out I was better off without a soulmate anyways.”

    And with that, Race turned heel and left, leaving Spot to feel like his entire life and world had been taken away from him.

    *****

    Race feels betrayed by Brooklyn's refusal to join the strike, and Spot definitely fucked up.

    Can be read as a stand alone.

    Summary

    After the strike things were different.

    It was Katherine now who made Jack laugh when he was in a dark mood and Davey whose shoulders Jack slung his arm over in the middle of a conversation. Crutchie sometimes wished he could hate them for it but Davey and Katherine were amazing, each in their own unique way, and he just couldn’t. They made Jack happy and Crutchie had rarely seen him smile so honestly and carefree as he did when he was with them.

    It made his heart ache that he hadn’t been able to give Jack that.

    It's Christmas and Crutchie struggles with finding his place in the world now that Jack spends most of his time with Katherine and Davey. Luckily he has brothers who look out for him and are always ready to knock some sense into Jack.

    Summary

    Finally, Race rounds a corner. His heart is still beating out of his chest but the Delanceys, thank God, are nowhere to be seen. Legs aching and still high from the run, he somehow finds the strength to laugh.

    or, Race can't stop getting into fights and Spot can't stop helping him. This might be a problem.
