    Summary

    "The name's Ryan," he introduced himself, "Ryan Bergara." Shane took his hand and shook it.

    "Shane Madej. Pleased to be working with you, Ryan."

    "... Every lawyer gets at least one case in his lifetime that affects him personally." - Atticus Finch
    Or in this case, as a cop/investigator, Shane Madej gets a case he seems to have no connection to have just about everything to do with him. A helpful passing Fed Ryan Bergara partners up with him as they try and figure out the face behind the interesting case.

    Summary

    Shane Madej is distracted by the gym teacher. Ryan Bergara thinks maybe history might not be so boring when it’s taught by that bean pole. Andrew Ilnyckyj can’t stop looking at that science teacher in the suits, can’t stop day dreaming about that home ec teacher in the glasses. Steven Lim wants to be everyone’s friend. There’s a rumor that Adam Bianchi hasn’t ever spoken to another teacher. Sara Rubin is perpetually exasperated by her best friend’s nonsense. Kelsey Darragh doesn’t classify herself as a relationship person, so why the hell does the photography teacher make her want to start a wedding pinterest board? Jen Ruggirello can’t seem to stop talking around the creative writing teacher, and that’s just bound to get her into trouble. Kristen Chirico is honestly just trying to keep things together. (Or: how is this high school even still functioning??)

    Summary

    Shane just looks at him. He’s afraid to talk to him. He feels like if he does the dream is going to abruptly come to an end, or Ryan is going to drop dead on the pavement. Maybe he’s just supposed to watch, and if he stays quiet, keeps his distance and doesn’t disturb the scene, he’ll get to watch Ryan be alive and breathing and happy forever. But the younger man puts an end to his musing, because once he’s done putting the bags in the car trunk, he closes it, turns back to Shane and looks at him. Shane flinches under his gaze. Ryan has to squint because the sun is blinding him. There’s a small smile on his lips.

    « You okay, big guy? »

    Shane almost jumps at the sound of his voice. Ryan has never looked more beautiful, he thinks. The morning light is making his skin glow like gold, and if Shane could get just a little bit closer he would be able to count each eyelash on Ryan’s lids. Shane wants to reach out because no person in a dream of his has ever looked so real and tangible.

    He almost chokes on a sob. « How could I be? »

    -

    Ryan dies, and Shane feels like he's slowly losing his mind.

    Summary

    Shane had never thought too hard about taunting ghosts and demons. But it only takes one badly placed joke to invite in something that is better off left alone. His and Ryan’s comfortable friendship is going to be tested to its limits when a new development unleashes a storm of uncertainties into both of their lives. One thing’s for certain: Once the storm passes, his and Ryan’s relationship will never be the same again.

    Summary

    Shane is unsure if he can continue blaming grief at this point. Sure grief can make you do crazy things. Quit your job, cut your hair, get a tattoo impulsively, pay too much money for mediums to pretend to tell you what your lost one has to say to you.

    It didn't usually entail the use of a "magic book" in the hopes of seeing the dearly departed one more time.

    “Because ghosts aren’t real, Ryan,” he can’t resist adding with a wicked grin.

     

     

    Or, alternatively:

    Shane is a demon.

    Ryan knows. Part of him has known since San Jose, since Mexico, since Kansas.

    After all, Shane hasn't exactly been very subtle.
