    Summary

    Finally, Eliot says, “Quentin.” He turns to look him in the eye, his face settling into a casual smile. “We’re friends, right? We know each other pretty well?”

    “Ye-es?” Quentin says.

    “And you’re a brave boy,” Eliot says. “Open to delving into the unknown. Looking for your next great adventure.”

    “I, uh.” That isn’t how Quentin would normally describe himself, but somehow — with Eliot’s hazel eyes shining at him, the full force of his warm, encouraging energy focused on Quentin’s face — he sits up a little straighter, and says, “Sure, I guess.”

    “Great,” Eliot says brightly, “so how would you like to pretend we’re dating for a week so we can get into the most secretive magical couples’ party of the modern era?”

    Summary

    Eliot slams the flyer down on the table. “Fillory has an entire festival dedicated to fucking and I had no idea it existed? What the fuck, Margo?”

    “It’s not dedicated to fucking,” Fen breaks in. “And it only happens every few years, because it’s dedicated to finding your soulmate.” She smiles brightly, her eyes sparkling as she sighs. “They only put ‘fucking’ in the title to get everyone’s attention. And because of all the brothels that are set up on the festival site.”

    “Finding your soulmate?” Quentin breaks in. Eliot’s eyes cut over to him, a soft smile automatically forming on his face as he takes in Quentin’s crooked crown, and his soft brown eyes that are focused on Fen. “Like, a real ‘only one in the entire world for me’ soulmate?”

    “Mmhmm,” Fen says, nodding. “Do they not have soulmates on Earth?”

    “Only in Disney movies,” Margo says, sitting down in her chair. “And the best fanfiction ever written.”

    Summary

    Bucky felt his vibranium hand curl into a fist. Natalia was in front of him before he could blink, her hand covering his metal wrist. She stepped closer, and then her palm was pressed against his cheek, her skin warm against his. The tension drained from his body, and he relaxed into her touch.

    “I get it,” she said, thumb brushing close to the corner of his mouth. “They’re trying to hurt you. You want to hurt them back.”

    He nodded, suddenly incapable of speech. It was as if she’d short circuited his brain. All he could think about was her hand on his face; as close as she was, all he wanted was for her to move closer.

    Despite the bounties on their heads, Bucky and Natalia do some covert ops work under the table.

    Summary

    Natasha couldn’t not buy the magazine when she saw it. It simply wasn’t an option. The headline stopped her dead in her tracks. Black Widow’s Shocking Affair with Teacher! it read under a picture of Natasha. In a smaller font underneath the headline, it said: Late-night romp, boozing & how they trashed a hotel suite!

    *************

    Natasha and Bucky have only told a select few that they are in a relationship and living together. The privacy is great, but the rumors? Well, some are entertaining, some are baffling, and one might hit a bit too close to home for comfort.
