    Summary

    Billy Hargrove knows alphas. He works at an alpha clinic, helping alphas through their ruts, and has seen every kind of alpha there is; he’s also the only worker there who has never had a regular patient. He knows it’s because of his personality - too loud, too confident, too aggressive - and he also knows that is why he’s chronically single, too, after a slow series of lukewarm dating with betas and omegas.

    But Billy has long since given up on finding “the one.” How could he find ”the one” when everything he really, truly wants is everything he can’t have in a mate?

    Summary

    Despite Jaskier's hard work, there are still plenty of people who hate witchers. They think they're monstrous, inhuman, only held back from violence by a thin veneer of control. One mage has a plan to spread his views by capturing a witcher and bewitching them to remove their control. When the Butcher of Blaviken walks into his hideout, he's convinced he's found the perfect candidate - and a convenient way to get rid of the pesky bard that's been singing his praises.

    Jaskier is forced to agree witchers are not human, but that doesn't mean they're dangerous. In fact, he's astounded by how many of Geralt's uncontrolled impulses involve touching.

    Summary

    James had been back in the country for exactly two hours and asleep for 10 minutes when the alarm blared. 

     

    they’ve found him

     

    He was opening the window and climbing down the eaves with his holster in his teeth before he knew what he was doing. 

    Then his feet touched the frost-tipped grass that he realised he was standing in front of his building in his boxer-briefs. 

    In November. 

    At one in the morning. 

    And that it had been a fire alarm.

    Summary

    Geralt does not like being touched, except under specific circumstances. It requires a level of trust that he is simply not comfortable giving. Jaskier, though, seems determined to earn it.

    (An inversion of the touch-starved Geralt trope)

    Summary

    Jungkook doesn’t know how else to live as an Alpha if he were being honest. Even if he was the son of a King and Queen, he was still inferior to the rest of the individuals around him. His people had treated him kindly, but with reservations. They bowed their heads but never as deeply as they did for his brother or parents.

    And he had accepted that, because you can’t change who you are.

    But this, Jungkook thinks as he runs his hand over the sapphires and rubies sewn into the clothes he was expected to wear for dinner with the King. To be the Jeonha’s toy, while his people were slaughtered and robbed of their properties and possessions, left half-starved and unable to defend themselves from the upcoming winter.

    Jungkook tears the outfit in half.

    He would never accept it.

    Summary

    "Lance? What are you doing?"

    A fair question, he must look silly with his ear up against the wall like this. "I'm feeling for a secret passage."

    He can almost feel the eye roll she gives him. "You've seen too many movies, Lance. There is no secret passage," she says dully.

    Lance snorts. He knows that. The Galra are known for practicality, and adding a secret passage on a battlecruiser like this one to anything resembling a prison cell does not fit Zarkon's M.O. at all. Still, if so many movies made use of them - why wouldn't there be some in real life?

    Besides, he and Pidge both could use a smile right now. Maybe a better idea will come when they're loose with a good laugh.

    "Oh really?" he challenges. "Then how do you explain this?"

    ~~~~~

    AU of S7E3 in which Lance and Pidge are in a separate cell from the rest of the team.

    Summary

    “I thought this was supposed to be a date night,” says Eddie.
    “Yeah,” says Maddie as she drains her fourth glass of wine. “But you guys forgot to bring dates.”
    “We came together,” points out Buck.
    “So sad. So lonely,” slurs Maddie, patting Buck’s arm. 
    “You’ll make someone very happy someday,” adds Chimney, tripping over the words.
    Eddie looks at Buck.
    “It’s not worth it, babe,” says Buck. "They're too drunk for this."

    Summary

    Sometime during the tenth time they talked about it, and when it was actually official on paper, Yoongi stopped referring to Taehyung as ”dad” in front of their kid.

    Simply saying "Hold on darling, Taehyung and I are talking", over a phone call was easier than explaining why love didn't last.

    He was sure it wouldn’t be long until she picked up on it, and that was one of the scariest things. Probably worse than accepting actually having to leave Yoongi.

    Summary

    “I always wonder what a pretty face is doing in a place like this.”

     

    Coy to the other man's flirting, Shiro replied, “Getting coffee?” 

     

    "Of course, why would I think otherwise." Lance barked out a laugh, leaning onto the counter on his elbows and peering up at Shiro through half-lidded eyes. "What will it be this time, darling?"

     

    -

     

    A million lightyears away from Earth, Shiro drinks some coffee and learns a thing or two about the cute barista down the road.

    Stared some more, into those beautiful, soft, brightly-blue eyes.

    "...You'll heal."
