    Summary

    He loved Timothy. They were a goddamn week away from leaving. It wasn’t fair.

    He saw the old oak that sat at the crossroads leading into town. The wind finally stilled, and Rhys sighed in relief, no longer being sapped of warmth. As he approached the tree, the crickets quieted entirely, the night air was eerie and false. Rhys’s feet went leaden, and he stopped. Something compelled him to pause.

    In the silence, Rhys startled as he heard a voice, ethereal and whispering like it was over his shoulder.

    “Lookie what we have here.”
    --------
    In the Fall of 1948, Rhys aims to leave his hometown with his lover and friends. It was all supposed to go so smoothly, with all the plans laid out and one awful night takes that all away. As luck would have it, supernatural forces swoop in to solve Rhys' problems that night. But deals have fine print.
    Inspired by a short story from spacecoyote, "The Path"

    Summary

    We all know the story: Rhys is a data-miner, almost makes Head of Security, but gets booted to Janitorial thanks to his asshole rival. So, what if Rhys never found out about the deal on Pandora? Would he just stay; twiddling his thumbs, hoping a Hero will save him from his new state of total boredom; instead of just hacking into Hyperion's systems and sending Assquez on a one way trip to Promethea? Of course he would. Because of one teenie, tiny little change made to Canon.

    Handsome Jack Wins.

    Oh. And Rhys might be completely obsessed with him.

    Summary

    There was once a man called Jack, and he had been betrayed or abandoned by everyone he ever cared about, and he decided that if he ever cared about anyone ever again, he was going to betray or abandon them first.

    Then Jack made a friend. His name was Rhys.

    Chapter 5 of Tales happened. Rhys kept the eye.

    Welcome to the fix-it. It's gonna take a while. (It'll be worth it.)

    Summary

    “So here’s what I’ve figured out so far: the message came from ‘THE FUTURE.’” Jack snorts. “Of course, that’s gotta be bullshit, right? Because why and how and no fucking chance. But after three weeks of coffee-fueled benders and only the occasional break to masturbate while eating a bagel in the shower, I can definitively tell ya… It ain’t not from the future, Kitten.”

    Jack paces while he talks, his large hands gesturing broadly for emphasis. His voice echoes off the high ceiling of his office, lending a hallowed timbre to his words. “Can’t tell if that look you’re givin’ me is skeptical or shit-terrified, Kiddo. Who am I kidding? Either one works!”

    Summary

    After Handsome Jack's death, everyone seemed to have a different reaction. Some celebrated, some cried, some wondered what does it mean for the future. With the failure of the Vault of the Warrior, Hyperion itself struggled to remain on the market. Yet, new Eridian secrets get discovered and the company's legacy prevails. Each Vault is a journey and each journey demands you to lose something in order to gain something else.

    Timothy, out of fear for his own life, escapes Helios. Ready to begin anew on an old planet, away from anything Hyperion, he finally tries to catch a breath in his ever-changing life.

    Rhys, completely bereaved, tries to take matters into his own hands. With a vow to become the new Handsome Jack, he works towards his dream promotion to get at the top of the corporate ladder.

    They meet each other on Pandora, because of a certain Vault Key deal.

    Summary

    Rhys, fed up with Jack acting like people exist only for him, has him make a bet.

    [“We make it a bet. We “fake” date, do all the things couples do, and the first one to fall for the other loses.” A chatter through the crowd as they all turned to see what Jack would say.]

    Summary

    (Formerly titled "Fiends to Fire.")
    "So you thought all it took was a piece of paper pilfered from the ruins of Helios to make Mr. Rhys Strongfork into the re-founder of Atlas, eh? Ha! No, my optimistic friends, the business world doesn't work that way, not even close. Take it from old Marcus--there is always, eh, the fine print to consider, yes?
    "You may recall when last we saw the Company Man, he had just set foot into the famed Vault of the Traveler. The Vault, it seems, lives up to its name, for it whisked him away from Pandora and set him on a new course altogether. Meanwhile, the Pandoran Hustler's young sister finds herself left behind in the wastes, and forced to find her own way.
    "It won't be easy for them, of course. This risky venture will be fraught with new foes, uncertain allies, and a sizable helping of inner demons, just for good measure.
    "But I ask you this--would my dear listener have it any other way?"

    Summary

    Vaughn frowns, his mind seemingly lagging behind the conversation at hand, or rather, the words coming through his Echo. He almost swears that Fiona’s drunk, or maybe even really sleep deprived from her travels, as nothing she’s saying really makes sense.

    “I’m sorry, Fiona– back up,” Vaughn interrupts, shaking his head. The words feel like lead on his tongue and the air in his office is so much more thinner. “You said– You said Rhys almost died?”
