    Summary

    As if anything about this job could conceivably get any worse, the hand pointing the gun at her belonged to none other than one Juno Steel, Private Eye, mouth hanging open and face turning red faster than she had previously thought possible.

    --

    Alessandra Strong has survived a lot of things, but "accidentally getting hired to stop your friend and his crime-family from robbing a bank" isn't one of them. Yet.

    Summary

    After their trouble on Phosphic Five, the crew could really use a vacation. It’s too bad that Juno is constitutionally incapable of vacationing.

    Summary

    If someone had told Juno when he was a kid that he would be exorcizing demons and ghosts and ancient Martian horrors and poltergeists from people, pets, artifacts, and their homes... well... He probably would have thought it was pretty cool back then.

    Local librarian, Mabrie Gardener, meanwhile, is fed up with his total lack of job security and decides to seek out professional help.

    Summary

    Vespa turns and stares him down. “There was no reason for you to get shot today, Steel,” she says, dark eyes flashing. Then she is gone.

    Alone in the dark infirmary, breathing shallowly, Juno understands this perfectly. Do a better job. Don’t get shot next time. Protect your team and don’t get hurt.

    Summary

    For all the things Buddy and Vespa lost beneath the Martian sun, they found each other again.

    Memories, lost things, and a morning gone awry. Apologies, emotional conversations, and ridiculous soap operas.

    Summary

    Nureyev drinks nothing but black coffee for breakfast, favors silver jewelry, sleeps with one eye open, and is glad to let Buddy take the lead in their criminal overtures. His tongue is sharp, his silence sharper. He wears tailored A-line suits, slim silver glasses, garçon-style culottes, and once, notably, a smoking-jacket embroidered in white roses, which Juno hates to look at. And always, always, heels—practical suede boots, red-soled pumps, piercing stilettos. Legs for days.

    Or: sharing a spaceship with a master thief who's a) extremely hurt, b) very bitter, and c) really fucking sexy is ... a challenge.

    Summary

    Juno wants to start over. That's why he's leaving Mars. He's spent a lot of time since his last night with Nureyev thinking about what he would do if he ever got the chance to talk to him again, and actually seeing him again is both the best and worst feeling in the world. Juno and Nureyev must navigate their broken relationship as they finally get to see the universe together, even if it's not the way either of them wanted it to happen.

    Summary

    “You need me to what?” Buddy takes over.
    “It’s very simple. This is an all-hands-on-deck robbery situation, so we can’t afford to have one of our best thieves playing pretty boy this time. Besides, you’ve proven yourself to be perfectly competent at creating a distraction.”
    “Usually the distraction involves punching people, Buddy.” She smiles at him.
    “Be creative, darling, I have faith in you.”

    Things go awry when Juno goes undercover. Peter's new persona stresses them both out. Rita is great at eye makeup

    Summary

    “Hang on, they’re just computer files?” I blurted out. “Why can’t Rita hack in from the ship?”

    The big guy—sorry, Jet—offered an explanation. “The computer bank that houses the data we need is isolated from all networks. Without a physical connection to the machine, it is completely inaccessible.”

    “That’s intentional, of course,” Nureyev added. “With enough time and planning, my dear detective, there isn’t a database in the galaxy that a master hacker can’t access.”

    “…So they put it where the hacker can’t get to it in the first place.” I sighed. “A secure government space station.”

    Summary

    Juno has been on Buddy and Vespa’s ship for three weeks now, and they’ve been…eventful.

    Rita, predictably, gets on like a house on fire with every last one of them. Buddy and Vespa find her exasperatedly endearing, Jet listens to her rants about streams and cybersecurity with equally rapt attention, and Peter… Well, Peter gets along with everyone, doesn’t he?

    Juno's the one who doesn't fit, and slowing down means that the stress of everything with Theia and O'Flaherty finally has a chance to catch up with him. Juno's never had the best timing, has he?

    Summary

    There’s something unsettling about the tilt of his head, the slight flicker in those shining eyes, the way the shape of his face shifts in the neon light like it isn’t quite solid. Something Other.

    “You’re the thief,” Juno says. The fairy's jagged, knifelike grin only goes sharper at the corners.

    “And you, from that tone, must be the thief-taker."

    Summary

    “Nightmare?” Nureyev asks, a whisper in the silence. Juno looks away. Those eyes, full of starlight, follow him and soften, and God, how he gazes at Juno, tender and full of love like Juno was his queen and worth the world. Juno drowns in it, emotions he hasn’t felt in a long time.

    Summary

    really this is just a series of vignettes from Peter's POV after the finale, with a focus on Juno's progress throughout season 2, how he's healthier than he was when Peter knew him. don't @ me about the framework, just enjoy the ride.

     

     

     

    With the slight shakiness of comms footage there was a boy standing on a stage in front of dozens of people. His dark skin and darker eyes were so familiar Peter would know them anywhere, but that huge, mischievous grin wasn’t something he could ever imagine on Juno’s face. This wasn’t Juno twenty six years ago. It was his twin.

    Summary

    Peter has lost Juno once, and after that, he's promised it will never happen again.
    But if their next heist is any indicator, that might not be such an easy promise to keep. Oh, and it seems he'll have to fake a marriage again.

    Part heist, part character study through the lens of past trauma.
