    Summary

    Three years after the destruction of Helios, Rhys has managed to build himself a financial empire alongside Jack and Timothy.

    They have a special agreement in place: Jack is supposedly trying to work on himself, and Tim helps with the stocks...among other things. But the setup is unhealthy at best, deteriorating as jealous tension, escalating corporate conflict, and sudden material temptations chip away at the trio's shakey stability.

    Three years is a long time, but was it long enough to secure the trust that they will need to survive Maliwan and, once again, Pandora?

    (See chap 5 about spoiler content, there are no bl3 spoilers until that chapter)

    Summary

    They’d worked so hard to get to this moment. To stand at the precipice of triumph, where only a handful of others have stood before them. All they blood they’d spilled, all the sacrifices they had to make – it was a small price to pay for a moment like this one. And besides, it can only be downhill from here, right?

    Opening the Vault was supposed to be the hard part.

    Turns out, it’s all the shit that comes after it that’s the real pain in the ass.

    In which the end of one tale is just the beginning of another. Let’s take it from the top, shall we?

    Summary

    Zer0 is the ultimate badass. After three years on Pandora, they've become nigh unstoppable. Nothing is a challenge after killing godlike biological superweapons on two separate occasions, and things have become monotonous for them. Then they're ambushed during what was supposed to be a routine mission. They barely escape with their life, but not before being injected with a strange and debilitating poison.

    Rhys is the workaholic CEO of a once-powerful megacorporation, now reduced to a smattering of bandit-infested ruins. Rebuilding is an uphill battle, one that leaves him isolated from his friends as he pours himself into work. It's only chance that he comes across Zer0's bloody, barely conscious form in the middle of the desert.

    Hunted and unable to fight, Zer0 is forced to go into hiding. Lucky for them, Rhys's top secret Atlas Facility has some extra beds and some of the best security on Pandora.
    Besides, Rhys could really use the company.

    Summary

    Between meetings and sleep and calls with friends, Handsome Jack comes to him, taunting him with visions of what could have been, of what-ifs and if-onlys. There are so many points at which events could have diverged. Things didn’t have to turn out this way. Rhys could have made so many better choices. Even in death, Handsome Jack won’t die, like some of his code got stuck on the way out and has taken up permanent residence in Rhys’ brain.

    Summary

    Transported to a cavern lined with eridium, Rhys isn't sure whether to be more surprised at his steadily declining physical state or the re-emergence of hologram Jack. It doesn't take long for Rhys' siren abilities to manifest as his body is pushed to the edge. Why does he have siren-like abilities? How is he going to get the hell out of the cavern? Why the hell can he touch Handsome Jack? And more importantly, why is Jack starting to look a little more physical and a lot more invested in Rhys?

    Summary

    “That’s good,” Rhys was saying, “sorry, I didn’t realize they had individual AIs on these models.”
    >They don’t, usually. I’m special.
    Rhys’ grin widened. “Well, I suppose I must have gotten lucky then.”
    >You and me both babe.

    (Based on a conversation in a rhack server. Just before Helios falls, Jack copies himself into a separate Hyperion ship. Rhys is getting tired of the old Atlas bases. Jack still wants to kill Rhys. Don't worry, he'll get over it.)

    Summary

    It's not Fiona's fault she keeps ruining her clothes while she's roaming Pandora hunting for Vaults, but she's also totally not going to give Rhys' jacket back unless he makes her.

    Summary

    Timothy Lawrence was told by one of his only friends, that the new Atlas CEO was a different kind of boss, and that Atlas was now a different kind of company. Since he was in need of a job and not many people are willing to hire the doppelganger of Handsome Jack, he didn't have many options anyway. So when the CEO Rhys Fausse personally reached out to offer him a job, it seemed like the best course of action.

    However, as Tim knows better than most, sometimes the most handsome faces, hide the darkest secrets.  

    Maybe he has nothing to worry about. Maybe Janey was right. It seemed different. I had to be different.

    It would all be just fine. Right?'

    Summary

    exulansis
    n. the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it—whether through envy or pity or simple foreignness—which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land. - The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

    --

    Five years ago, Rhys spent the night of his dreams with his number one celebrity crush, Handsome Jack. But the next time he meets his idol, Handsome Jack doesn't seem to remember him at all.

    Broken and alone after the fall of Helios, Rhys finds something he always knew he wanted but could never admit to himself: one of Handsome Jack's doppelgangers, working as a prostitute. Now, Rhys can live out all of his fantasies, and maybe work out some of the uglier feelings that experience had left him with.

    Summary

    Time has passed since what happened on Pandora with Rhys and his friends. With the Vault key fiasco, Hyperion, and Handsome Jack behind him, Rhys has returned to ATLAS to continue his work. However, with the stress of work, increasing nightmares, and new information about the Vault of the Traveller, things aren’t exactly coming together in the way that he imagined. Combine that with a series of strange events, and you get a recipe for disaster.

    Summary

    A 3 part story of Jathena post-wedding fluff and smut, inspired by two requests I received as part of the Jathena PWP project, but which I ended up writing too much plot for (classic move). So click on through if you're keen for a heap of sentiment, fluff, and all kinds of smut.
