    Summary

    He walked out of the bathroom, blindly crossing his bedroom as he dried his hair, and he couldn't help but wonder how working at the Phoenix is going to be now. "I started to think you drowned back there," a voice sounding somewhere behind Mac startled him and he spun around, his eyes widening when he saw a man sitting on a chair behind his desk. "How long can one person spend in the shower?"

    (Or the one where Desi wasn't available to replace Jack, so he found someone else he thought he could trust... which was a mistake)

    Summary

    While the sleep paralysis thing sucked big time, Jack figured there was no need to tell anyone on the team about it, especially Mac. The last thing Jack wanted was for Mac to feel unsafe around him during missions because of Jack’s... unpredictable condition. And it was going fine for a while... until a few months ago when things between him and Mac changed.

    (AKA the one where Jack has sleep paralysis and Mac is a good boyfriend.)

    Summary

    When Mac got there he expected to find Jack already waiting for him since he had less distance to cover, but Mac didn’t see him anywhere. The tac team was there to provide back up, there were paramedics helping the injured civilians... but Jack was nowhere to be seen. Figuring maybe Jack went around to check if the civilians were all out, Mac waited patiently, completely calm except for the adrenaline still coursing through his body and he chatted with one of the guys from the tac team... but then five minutes passed and Jack still wasn’t there.

    Mac tried to call him through the comms, but there was silence on the other end and Mac suddenly had a bad feeling about all of this. He went back inside much to the tac team’s chagrin, but there was nothing that would keep Mac from going back for Jack and he knew that worked both ways. He picked his way around crying civilians and tireless nurses and doctors, and eventually he made it to what was left of the courtyard. He stepped through a broken window and almost tripped over a body... a body that didn’t look quite like the bad guys scattered around.

    A body that Mac knew too well.

    (Or the one where Mac accidentally blows up Jack... and what happens after.)

    Summary

    “Thought that was a failed experiment,” Jack said after a moment, glancing over at the young man in the box again. He sat on a plain twin bed in some sweatpants and a t-shirt, and as Jack watched he shivered a little. “Something about splicing DNA together?”

    “Not exactly,” Walsh said with a chuckle. “That was the on the record summary. Off the record... well, there were a couple of different ideas, but the main purpose of the project was to make better soldiers. Ones with... abilities than our enemies couldn’t combat. My old partner and I disagreed on how to approach the subject and we went our separate ways—his idea was a failure, and Angus is the result of mine.” He raised his voice, shouting through the holes drilled in the plastic walls for ventilation: “Show him what you can do, boy.”

    That cold stare turned to Walsh, and for a second the kid—Angus, evidently—didn’t do anything. Then, quick as lightning, his hand snapped out and a burst of whitish-blue energy flew out of it and hit the wall opposite him, spreading out and disappearing after it touched the plastic.

    (AKA the one where Mac was kidnapped from MIT and has superpowers, and Jack is... well, Jack. Things progress from there.)

    Summary

    He was in a plywood box that was barely big enough for one person, let alone two, and the other person in there with him? It was Jack, because that was just how Mac’s life worked.

    He flailed a hand and managed to smack him on the chest. “Hey, Jack, wake up. We’ve got a problem.

    Jack didn’t move at first but groaned, and then his eyes snapped open and it was clear he had no idea what was going on, until his eyes landed on Mac. He looked at Mac with a you’ve gotta be kidding me expression on his face, muscles tensing. “What the fuck, Mac?”

    (AKA the one where Mac and Jack get trapped in a box together and everything goes downhill (literally) from there.)

    Summary

    Riley’s brows drew down in worry next, and she looked so much like Jack in that moment that Mac would’ve thought she was his biological daughter if he didn’t know better. “Mac, I don’t think that’s a good idea. I wonder… okay, think about your symptoms. What does it sound like you might have?”

    “Riley, I’m not—” Mac started, but stopped talking when she glared at him. He sighed and forced himself to think, going over how he’d felt the past few days… and his eyes widened. “No,” he groaned, because there was one very obvious reason for a pain in his right side that radiated like that. “Not appendicitis, not today.”

    (Spoiler alert: Mac has appendicitis and he thinks he ruins Jack's birthday in chapter one. In chapter two they have sex. That's it. That's the fic.)

    Summary

    And then Patty would kill Jack, and who would protect Mac? Mac with his big brain, and his bright smile, and all that soft-looking blond hair… whoops, he wasn’t supposed to think about that. And he definitely wasn’t supposed to think about how blue and beautiful Mac’s eyes were, and how much… nope, not thinking about it.

    It was hard not to, because Mac was the prettiest thing Jack had ever seen…

    (Tag to 1x12 with a twist: what if Mac had gotten shot through the door when he came to rescue Jack in the cold open?)

    Summary

    Mac was aware that this wasn't healthy, but he was past the point of caring. It had taken all his nerve to take the cuff from a pile of Jack's things several months ago, and now... well, now he probably looked like a crazed stalker. The shirt he was wearing wasn't his, it was one of Jack's, a dusky charcoal gray that Mac would have never picked for himself. And the olive-green tactical pants? Those were Jack's, and so were the socks under Mac's boots - he would have taken a pair of Jack's, but his feet were significantly bigger than Mac's and they didn't fit.

    Summary

    “Congratulations,” Matty said in a weirdly cheerful voice that made Mac skeptical immediately. “You’ve won an all-expenses paid ten-day cruise to the Mexican Riviera—well, not really, but it sounded good.” She tapped at the tablet in her hands and brought up several more pictures, all of same-sex couples who looked happy, smiling in their beach clothes. “Five American couples have vanished off the same cruise liner in the past six months. The disappearances were spread far enough apart that suspicion of foul play stayed relatively low until two DEA agents on vacation went missing last week.”

    As he studied the couples on the screen Mac felt the bottom drop out of his stomach. “Matty… who exactly did you have in mind when you said that part about winning the cruise?”

    “It’s a big ship, so I figured two teams would be best,” Matty said, a knowing gleam in her eye. “You and Jack will be one, and Desi and Riley will be the other.”

    (Also known as the one where an undercover op on a cruise ship becomes very real... and very dangerous.)

    Summary

    Mac ran a hand through his newly-short hair and said to Riley and Bozer, who were listening from the stakeout van over comms, “I want it on record that I hate this haircut almost as much as I hate these pants. Who wears chinos to a nightclub?”

    “Someone who wants to get picked up by a particular dude with connections to several terrorist groups and a stolen prototype of a high-tech scope that he takes with him everywhere?” Riley suggested cheerfully. “Now stop whining, kid.”

    (Or the OTHER one where the target likes gay clubs and Mac and Jack have to make out to keep their cover. Things get... complicated after that.)

    Summary

    The man hovering over him was lying partially on the floor with Jack, but the end of his tail hung in the water. Large blue eyes watched Jack’s face, full of concern and framed by long lashes. He had tan skin dotted with the occasional freckle or mole, sharp cheekbones, and a tangle of wet blond hair. Patches of blue-green scales were visible on his neck and over his ribs, and when he breathed in three little slits on either side of his throat opened and closed.

    He was the most beautiful man Jack had ever seen, and he had a tail and gills.

    Summary

    Jack fell to his knees and squeezed off two quick shots of his own, killing Marakov when they hit him in the heart, and for a second Mac thought that maybe Jack was okay... except then he collapsed on his back and Mac saw the hole in the lower front portion of his vest. "Jack, shit," he said, dropping to his knees next to him and undoing the straps on the vest hurriedly. "Are you hurt, did the bullet..." He trailed off when he saw the spreading patch of red on the front of Jack's t-shirt... right over his gut.

    (Or the one where Jack pushes Mac out of the way.)

    Summary

    “Where’s Mac?” Jack asked the second Bozer was in the war room, making him freeze and look at Jack like a deer caught in headlights. Jack could tell that Bozer was trying to make up some kind of excuse, so he got up from his chair and walked over to him. “Don’t even think of lying to me, Bozer.”

    Matty and Riley exchanged a look, both recognizing Jack’s intense tone as the one he usually reserved for misbehaving targets.

    Bozer took a deep breath and set his shoulders. “So I went to pick Mac up, and he was, uh… not feeling well? Which I wasn’t supposed to tell you, but I didn’t come up with a plan B.”

    Summary

    Studying Jack’s features, Mac tried to decide which one was his favorite. His strong, stubbled jaw? His salt-and-pepper hair, grown out just long enough to be fuzzy and soft? What about the lines near his eyes, or his eyes themselves? Brown like the richest bourbon or the sweetest syrup, they could be hard and cold one moment and full of affection the next.

    “Do I have something on my face?” Jack mumbled, and cracked one of those eyes open to peer at Mac. “Or are you just entranced by my beauty?”

    Mac’s smile widened. “Can it be both?”

    Summary

    Mac hung up and threw the phone on the nightstand before sitting on the bed next to Jack. “We have a problem, and there’s only one way to solve it.”

    Jack frowned, his cheeks flushed in a way that was entirely too distracting. “What is it?”

    Mac tore his gaze away from his partner and stared at the wall across from them. “The stuff you inhaled at the lab… it was an experimental drug made from pollen. It’s meant to increase breeding rates in endangered animals.” His hands, which rested on his thighs, clenched into fists. “It’s why your temperature and heart rate are elevated—you’ll probably start to have other symptoms soon. If you don’t get the pollen out of your system, you’ll eventually go into cardiac arrest.” He breathed in and out, and pushed all the feelings he had for Jack as far down as he could. “I’m sure if I go down to the motel office, I can pay someone to come in and…”

    He trailed off, unable to finish that sentence. He wanted Jack, he’d loved him for years, but he knew Jack didn’t look at him the same way—why would he?

    Summary

    There was a nagging emptiness in his stomach and an itch behind his lips, and Mac wondered how long he had been unconscious if he was this hungry. His hands started roaming over himself in a self-assessment, and everything was fine until he got to his neck… because his neck had scabs on it.

    Two scabs, like bite marks from fangs.

    The second he felt them with his fingers he froze, staring ahead with wide eyes. “No,” he whispered to himself as the realization dawned on him, and suddenly he knew exactly what had happened to him, and he felt like he was going to be sick.

    Summary

    “This reminds me of our last trip to Vegas, and not in the fun way,” Jack said, and he saw the comprehension in Mac’s eyes. They were locked in a room they couldn’t escape from, only instead of being together in a bunker, there was at least a foot of concrete and a bulletproof window between them. They also had no food or water, and while the temperature was comfortable for the moment, that didn’t mean it would stay that way. “And just like Vegas, somebody’s watching us.” Jack pointed, and sure enough, up in the corner closest to the doors in each room was a camera with a blinking red recording light. “Hey, asshole! How about you come down here and say hi to your guests? This doesn’t seem very hospitable.”

    He heard Mac sigh, and knew without looking he was rolling his eyes. “Glad we got to discuss our strategy this time,” he muttered, but without real heat behind it.

    Summary

    Jack looked at him for a moment before dropping his gaze to his feet and smiling, a chuckle rumbling out of him. “I should’ve known you’d be even more bullheaded than I was about this,” he said, and Mac would have taken offense except it was true that they were both incredibly stubborn… but again, he felt like he was missing something. “It’s not just because I’m too old, hoss. It’s because I’m too old and I’ve had an organ transplant.”

    That… caught Mac off guard and it was about the last thing he had expected Jack to say like… ever. “What?”

    (Or the one where Jack had a heart transplant when he was sixteen and he never told anyone.)
