    Summary

    "It's October first,” Stiles says.

    “So it is.”

    He taps his chin a bit dubiously, and then sips his pumpkin spice nice and slow, as if he’s considering all his possibilities. Across the room, an old man frowns at the two of them sitting there – maybe because they’re homos, or maybe because Stiles is the local witch doctor. Either way, Stiles pays it no mind and simply winks in the old man’s direction before turning his eyes back onto Derek. “My witchy powers are in full force in this dark month.”

    “Can’t we just carve pumpkins and put decorations up like everyone else?”

    Summary

    Adam didn’t care about football. Between school and work and searching for Glendower, he just didn’t have the time to care. Of course, it was plausible that he didn’t care because his father had cared too much. It was also plausible that he didn’t care because he liked not to think about the incredulous wads of money football players made simply for throwing pigskin around while he struggled to cover rent.
    In any case, Adam didn’t care. Which made it all the while more confusing as to why he had just walked through Aglionby’s football field’s gate entrance.

    Summary

    “Jesus Christ, I forgot Parrish was living with the Snake,” Blue interjects.
    “Snake?” Adam asks.
    “Yes, Snake. Obviously.”
    “Jane, don’t be mean,” Gansey scolds.
    “I’m not being mean, it’s his nickname. He calls me Maggot, I call him Snake. They’re our terms of endearment.”
    “Those are some very unorthodox terms of endearment,” Adam points out.
    “You’ve only known him for a day,” Blue says. “After a month you can let me know whether or not you agree with the nickname.”
    ***
    Adam is starting Harvard Medical School and finds himself with a new roommate with a chip on his shoulder. What he doesn't realize is that they both have more in common than they know, including dark pasts that have not quite let them go. The only thing that may save them from themselves is each other.

    Summary

    Adam Parrish works as a sober companion, but he has no idea of the storm that's soon to hit him when Ronan Lynch turns out to be his newest client. (Or the one where Adam Parrish and Ronan Lynch are trapped underneath the same roof for six weeks.)

    *

    Ronan, to his surprise, opened his eyes. For a breathless moment, Adam was transfixed in them. They were the color of the ocean on the most azure of nights, lightning right before it struck the ground, damp hydrangeas on a fog-swept morning. Those eyes gave him chills.

    Summary

    "Glancing up into the just as grimy mirror, he wondered if he'd catch a glimpse of that girl, the girl with the close cropped black hair and razor smile and body made for fighting. The girl who always seemed to have a bruised cheek or swollen lip or blood running down her forearm.

    He was only greeted with the man that had taken her place. His head was shaved, but his dark eyes still sparked with defiance as the girl's had. He was handsome the way a weapon is handsome, and he flaunted the scars that boasted as much.

    This man never seemed to notice him, despite Adam's attempts to converse with him. The girl hadn't either.

    They were one in the same, this man and that girl, but Adam couldn't seem to keep that fact in his mind. Still, he hoped he'd see that girl again, vain as it was. Even as he watched the man push down the waistband of his shorts to press a needle into his buttock, he could not reconcile that fact.

    The man in the mirror took a deep breath, steeling himself for what? Adam didn't know. Rubbing out the injection, he turned from the mirror and disappeared."
