    Summary

    Alfie was fast asleep when Tommy got up, face mashed into a pillow, impervious to any kind of background noise as usual, but of course – as soon as Tommy even starts thinking about doing something that might possibly affect him, he’s awake like somebody struck a bell somewhere.

    Morning sex. There's a desk involved.
    (Stand-alone, established relationship, set somewhere in the future.)

    Summary

    It's not a cruel instinct, Alfie doesn't think, not at its core, but it’s not an entirely nice one either. Possessive, maybe, which honestly wouldn’t be a huge revelation on his part. It’s far from the worst thing he ever had to realize about himself – he can live with being possessive just fine.

    In which Alfie realizes some things without even realizing it.

    Summary

    Somehow, it seems to work just as well in a different context, if the way Tommy is now staring at him is anything to go by – eyes wide and pupil-dark, not intimidated so much as mesmerized. Oh, Alfie thinks, it’s going to be that easy, is it? This is what’s required, here? Because he can definitely do that, no fucking problem at all.

    In which nobody knows what they're doing, really, but it works out anyway.

    Summary

    He looks like he has to seriously consider the question, which can’t be right, Tommy thinks, feeling a bit lost, because everybody has a fantasy lying around somewhere, right? One or two that are tried and true, like a favorite book, dogeared and well-worn.

    In which some people are trying to do a nice thing and then everything goes off the rails.
    (This is a sorta-kinda-sequel to "Absence makes" and takes place not long after that, but it's probably still fine without reading it first.)

    Summary

    At last, Alfie says “What do you want, then?” in such a casual tone that Tommy is instantly convinced it has to be an act, though he couldn’t possibly say for sure. He shrugs, pushes his hands a bit deeper into his pockets so he won’t be tempted to start fidgeting; except he can feel the cigarette packet and then he has to fight the urge to take that out and light up.

    “Can I come in?”

    In which some people have been ignoring other people, and everyone has as a lot of feelings about it.
