    Summary

    Carefully, he places two fingers under Rich’s chin and lifts so Rich is looking him in the eye. The eye contact barely counts for anything - Rich is completely guarded. It’s like staring at asphalt and asking it to tell you why you’re alive.

    Jake has his plan - lean down. Peck on the lips. Linger just long enough for Michael to consider it a real kiss. He won’t move, just press his lips against Rich’s until some type of warmth fills the room. Then he’ll pull away and return to his homework, simple as that. And Michael will have proof that he’s not a coward.

    He leans down slowly, giving Rich as much time as he needs to pull away. He doesn’t. Jake takes a single breath to try to calm himself and presses a kiss against Rich's lips.

    That's how Jake discovers, by complete accident, that the life he's been living is bland. Dull. Nothing compared to this burst of warmth and... flavor?

    ---

    Jake kisses Rich on a dare and consequently discovers Rich tastes like earl grey tea.

    On a completely unrelated note, totally heterosexual Jake Dillinger is now a tea fanatic.

    Summary

    “It was an accident!” Stiles continued, trying desperately to explain that this was all a huge misunderstanding and that the Demon clearly had to cut him some slack here.

    It didn’t seem like he would be getting his wish, because the Demon’s annoyance melted into frustrated incredulity and he said dryly, “You summoned me by accident.”

    “Yes!” Stiles insisted.

    “How is that even possible? How do you accidentally summon a Demon?”

    “You know, by accident!” Stiles argued.

    “So you accidentally drew the summoning sigil into the floor, and you accidentally had an offering available, and you accidentally stood in the circle while accidentally reading the summoning spell?” the Demon asked dryly.

    Okay, well when it was said like that, Stiles could understand the skepticism.

    Summary

    This neverending cycle of gravitation and overcorrection—it was something that no one deserved to endure at his hands, surely. Whatever twists of fate the future might hold, and whatever actions Reynauld might someday feel compelled to take in the name of safeguarding his eternal salvation, he thanked the Light daily that Dismas hadn’t already left him for dead in one of these dungeons just to be through with it all.

    It would be a fitting punishment, Reynauld figured; lenient, even. For all that he’d done, all that he wanted, all that he was.

    Summary

    Freddy wasn’t quite sure when it had started. When he had started taking quick peeks at the captain. When he started simply feeling better in his presence. When he had begun to look forward to the times when they had a mashup of their shows. When simply seeing his smile or hearing his laugh made him feel like he was bursting into flames.

    Whenever it had started, it hit him like he had just been thrown off stage.
