    Summary

    When she wakes up again, it’s nine a.m. and the app on her phone says the surf’s up at Oceanside. She doesn’t have work. She’s on an extended family emergency leave that really should have ended. But every time she thinks about emailing her boss, she thinks of the sick feeling of dread she used to get going into work half the mornings, and she thinks, I don’t want to think about it, and, aren’t I allowed, for once in my life, to slack off, just a little, and she doesn’t email, or call, or turn on her work phone. Instead, she surfs, and tries not to feel guilty about it.

    Summary

    He shoves his hands into the pockets of his coat as he makes his way towards the neighborhood where Joe and his research assistant will be living for the next four months, and steadfastly tries not to think about how the contact file on his phone that used to read "Dr. Yusuf Al-Kaysani (Jerusalem)" now simply reads "Joe". Or how there is now a photo attached to that contact file, which means whenever Joe calls him Nicolò’s phone screen lights up with a selfie of Joe in a backwards baseball cap on a sunny day somewhere in Bloomsbury.

    Summary

    Miriam thought the job working for InGen sounded perfect. Tropical island, good pay, first dibs on publications… At least, she thought so until she found out that she was the only behaviorist on staff. Once the eggs hatched, it became all she could do to keep up–with the dinosaurs, the science, and her health.

    Summary

    Enjolras presses his lips together. He already looks pained, and Grantaire hasn't even opened his mouth yet. That's got to be a record, even for them.

    "I need a favor," he says at last.

    "With what?" says Grantaire. "Ooh, are you forming a cult? Can I join? I'd be awesome at cults, I just know it." He ticks off his qualifications on his fingers. "I love chanting, I look great in robes—"

    (High school AU. Grantaire the disaffected stoner is pulled into a cause bigger than himself. Or: in which there are pretend boyfriends for great justice.)
