    Summary

    Taako sweeps himself into the common area of the Starblaster with all the drama and panache that he reserves for alternate Tuesday afternoons. Barry ignores him with all the practice he has from a decade of alternate Tuesday afternoons.

    “I’m exhausted,” Taako whines, draping himself across Barry’s shoulders, the sharp point of his chin poking into Barry’s collarbone. “I’ve been up since for-ev-er, working on this dumb transmutation thing for Lulu.”

    “Go meditate, then,” Barry says, absently reaching up to pat Taako’s head.

    “Meditate?”

    “You know, meditation? Isn’t that, uh, one of your elf things??” Barry finally looks up from his book, barest hint of a wrinkle in his forehead. Taako shakes his head.

    “Never heard of it, homeslice. Musta skipped that day at elf practice.”

    Barry laughs.

    “Elf practice, sure.”

    Summary

    Five times Taako manages to get a hug from one of his friends without having to actually admit that he wants a hug, and one time he flat out cops to it.
    1. Taako hates being cold and wet. He's both, thanks to an inconvenient river. Magnus is a human furnace, and thus it begins.
    2. Waking up feeling inexplicably lonely, Taako tries to goad Magnus into bickering with him in a bid for some company. He gets the company, at least.
    3. Angus is almost hit by a rogue cart, Taako deals with being idolized and trusted by a kid he doesn't think he deserves the faith of.
    4. During a fight, Taako almost dies, and Merle gets to practice his healing skills.
    5. Magnus has a nightmare, Merle nearly loses Magnus after a fight, and Taako finds himself on the other side of things.
    + 1. Merle casts Zone of Truth, Magnus is a good friend, and Taako makes a confession.

    Summary

    *aka "his husband, his sister, and his brother in law."
    **aka "annoys his family"

    Taako is supposed to die on the 18th of October, 652 A.H. Taako knows this. Taako stole Kravitz’s calendar-slash-agenda and on 10/18/52, it is marked in red: “Take Taako home.” There’s an asterisk mark with the addendum, “buy flowers maybe?”

    Taako had grinned to see it.

    Summary

    John is a freshly retired man with no ambitions, hobbies, desires, or... anything. To keep himself busy, he takes up a job at what should be a quiet, easy-going flower shop only to meet Merle Highchurch and send that whole 'calm retirement' shtick in the fucking garbage.

    He now has his hands full of loud coworkers determined to befriend him, battling wits with his boss who is his opposite in every way, and right, at some point, he starts coughing up flowers.

    An AU in which John works at a flower shop and contracts Hanahaki, a 'curse' in which the victim expels flower petals as a result of unrequited love.
