    Summary

    Title says it all. This started as a personal challenge, to write a scene that captured the pace, tension and even humour of a memorable action sequence just like in the movies.

    The result was "ETA 8 minutes...". And thanks to everyone who like and commented on it - I was encouraged enough to think I could write an entire story along with context to go with it. Might have bit off more than I can chew :). Hopefully I'll do the story justice.

    Summary

    A lone figure ran along the sidewalk. Otabek would have mistaken him for a motivated jogger, if not for the sinewy, fluid movements and familiar figure. He jerked his bike over, skidding to a halt in front of the runner.

    Otabek’s heart was pounding a sickening, dizzying rhythm, but he schooled his face into stoicism as he pulled his helmet off to get a better look.

     

    “Yuri Plisetsky died two years ago,” he growled. “What the hell are you?”

    Summary

    Yuri is forced to deal with a lot of issues from his past, when after five years of silence, Otabek is suddenly back in his life. It might be just what he needs to move on, but that doesn't mean it isn't hard, and sometimes, Otabek doesn't make it easy either, especially when Yuri's feelings for him resurface. He refused to go down that road once before, but he is not sure he is strong enough this time.

     

    He had long unfollowed most of his skater friends, Otabek among them, because he didn’t want to see the pictures of practices and ice shows, the videos of a new jump they’d learnt, or group photos during competitions he was no longer part of. It wasn’t surprising that he didn’t know about Otabek being in Russia, but it still would have been nice to get a little warning somehow.

     He thought about texting him, just to make it clear that he had meant to say hello, to explain that he was just surprised to see him, before he remembered that he didn’t even have his number since he deleted it five years ago.

    Summary

    Tony Stark has a secret. He hides it very well until August 20th comes around.

    On that date he is usually totally intoxicated by the end of the night... It was easier to hide when he was a regular drinker but now that he is on the wagon it is a little harder to keep his August 20th drinking habits to himself, especially when he has a boyfriend who cares about him.

    It's only a matter of time before Steve finally catches him in the act and Tony has to come to terms with August 20th: the birthdate of Peter Parker, the birthdate of a boy he had never met, the birthdate of his son...
