    Summary

    She knew it was hard for Buddy to say what was on her mind without a rehearsal dinner, and in all their arguing, she didn’t think she’d ever gotten a concrete reason that Buddy wanted her to stay on the crew so bad. Maybe...maybe Buddy would give her one. If she asked.

    Summary

    I knew those wrists, — I’d seen them in handcuffs before — I knew the hands that went with them. Broad, deep-lined palms, short strong fingers that flexed anxiously as I looked on, occasionally flashing a glimpse of the pale scars across the dark knuckles. Yes, only one set of hands in all the galaxy were as perfectly suited to trail a tender caress as they were to throw a punch. And I would have recognized them anywhere.

    Detective Peter Ransom has eked out a low-profile life for himself in Hyperion City, a galaxy away from the teenage revolutionary he used to be. When the HCPD bring him in to consult on a murder case, he finds himself unexpectedly reunited with Juno Steel, the thief who has been haunting his thoughts since he double-crossed him and stole away after one life-changing kiss.

    Summary

    When Juno came home and found Peter Nureyev on his couch, he assumed he was dreaming. He was probably better off that way.

    However, dreams didn’t curse at him under their breath in a language Juno couldn’t place. Dreams didn’t reek of blood and rain and blaster fire. Dreams didn’t cut through the vague, blue-tinged gray left when Juno’s curtains tried and failed to hold back the bustling Hyperion City night with a glare so potent Juno felt something twinge in his chest.

    Summary

    In her grief and despair and rage, Sarah looked at her son and said, I hope frost takes root in your bones.

    Vignettes from a world where a curse leaves you unable to feel warmth, a thief is both a man and a dragon, and love is sunlight on frostbitten hands.

    Summary

    It feels foolish after all this time. A forty-year-old reflex forcing him awake every time someone down the hall flushes a toilet or coughs too loudly.

    [Juno comes to terms with a decades-old trauma and Peter realizes he might possibly, perhaps, have some trust issues. At least they're trying.]

    Summary

    " What better way to steal maps to a high security museum than to stage a wedding, only to be prepared in the span of a week. He was not aware of the kind of contrived plot that Buddy had put together, but he definitely trusted her. She was a mastermind. Though, the idea of a wedding still made him shake slightly as he tried to visualize the steps to a slow dance.
    Whose wedding you ask? Well his and Juno’s. "

    Summary

    In other news, a stranger came to our… lovely little town today. His teeth were sharp, like a fox, and his eyes were… it was like he could look right through you. Through all the grime and malaise of the world and right into your heart. And god, the way he smelled. I'm not a fan of cologne usually— makes my head hurt— but on him it was… different. Just another piece of the puzzle.
     
    Or whatever. Or— whatever. 'Course I'm just telling you all this so you know him when you see him— shut up, Rita, I'm on the air— not like it'll be too hard. He calls himself Dr. Rex Glass, but let me editorialize here for a second, 'cuz there's no way that anyone has a name like that…

    Summary

    Peter Nureyev has always felt too much.

    First rule of thieving: keep your feelings in check. Don’t ever let them control you.

    Mag scolds him when he gets too emotional. A certain amount of rage is useful, Pete. A certain amount of sadness can drive us forward and inspire us to fight. If you let it overwhelm you, however, you stop thinking clearly. You risk endangering yourself and the cause.

    Peter has been trying very hard to listen to him, because he knows Mag is right. He usually is.

    It gets hard, sometimes, though.

    Summary

    "But Juno, where is the flair? The theatrics! The—"

    "Annoyingly heart-stopping way to wake me up and maybe get yourself killed?"

    "Ah, yes… That ." He shrugs as if this was considered, and ignored.

    Summary

    He’s lying across both Buddy and Rita’s lap, a position that would be a great deal more humiliating were circumstances different. Jet is gunning it faster than Nureyev knew possibly for the Ruby 7; an impressive feat, considering how much speed he’d been able to pick up back when the car was in his possession. And then there’s Vespa, knelt in front of him in the cramped back seat, applying pressure to his wound.

    If he were a different man in a situation dire as this, maybe he wouldn’t find it in him to feel ashamed of being stabbed. But he is not a different man and, as such, Nureyev is positively disgraced.

    Summary

    It was a simple enough question, even if it rang through Peter Nureyev’s head like wedding bells.

    His answer should have been obviously affirmative. It was the kind of question asked not to make a request, but merely because ordering such a thing would be deemed rude. Nureyev swallowed anyway. He blinked. He watched in real time as Juno’s brow furrowed, seeming to think Nureyev had missed his words altogether.

    When his lips parted once more, Nureyev knew exactly which words were going to come out, a little louder and a little more patient than the last time they had cut through the near-silent exercise room of the Carte Blanche.

    “Hey, Nureyev, will you spot for me?”

    Summary

    Juno Steel was right to leave.

    Because Peter Nureyev was not good enough, and Juno Steel knew that. Juno Steel knew that and that's why he left.

    This kind of thing will never happen to Peter Ransom.

    Summary

    In general, the majority of the rules of thieving weren’t terrible advice. Nureyev didn’t necessarily suffer because phrases such as “an underprepared thief is a dead thief” and “your plan B is only as good as your plan C” and “always be aware of your body at all times” whizzed around his head with all their sage advice.

    Some days, however, he wished he could pry that last rule of thieving off of his brain altogether.
