    Summary

    “It’s rare for an omega to go through a second bonding unless their first mate has passed on,” Copley comments, his tone serious. “A second incomplete bonding is practically unheard of. Professor Di Genova could have been admitted to a hospital to treat the heat symptoms he’s experiencing following this second bite. We can’t really say what will happen should the current bond be dissolved.”

    Nicky is a 30-year-old omega who teaches at the prestigious Scythian Academy. Joe is a 17-year-old alpha student who goes into his first rut during one of Nicky’s classes. On their way to the medical bay, Joe pins Nicky against a wall and bites on his scent gland, bonding them together.

    This is what happens next.

    Summary

    Amore, Nile is throwing a surprise party for Quynh before she leaves on her trip. She didn’t invite me sooner because she assumed I’d have to work, but it would be nice to get to say goodbye. Would you mind terribly?

     

    Joe sighs. He hasn’t had a chance to meet Nicky’s friends yet, but he knows Quynh is going on a trip around the world or something, planning to stay away for a year at least. And Joe can empathise with saying good-bye, since his co-worker Andy has just left the firm for a similar trip. So he cannot deny Nicky this opportunity, can he?

     

    Of course not, hayati. I’ll go have a drink with Booker, then. Be safe and see you tonight.

     

    ***

    Joe's out with his friend Booker, Nicky with his friend Nile. Let's see if a set up can be made.

    Summary

    After a few days, it is almost a tradition. He will look up from his work at the kitchen cabinet to find Joe smiling up at him. And every morning it gets harder not to indulge himself in the little fantasy, that Joe, sitting at the kitchen island all cosied up in Nicky’s hoodie is not a client who accidentally stole his hoodie, but a boyfriend who had every right to.

    A boyfriend who is all cosy and snug because Nicky’s shoulders are just a little broader than his, making the hoodie a little loose on him. A boyfriend who will make teasing comments to him about not giving the hoodie back, and ply Nicky with tea (or, preferably, coffee) to make him forget. A boyfriend who will eventually give the hoodie back to Nicky, at which point the fabric will have taken on just enough of his scent that Nicky won’t feel alone when walking home in the evening at all.

    In which Nicky's fixing Joe and Booker's kitchen, Joe accidentally steals his hoodie, and Booker livetweets the whole thing.

    Summary

    Onstage, the drums and guitars steamroll to a crashing crescendo, and Joe belts out a final note, bringing the song to a thunderous, impressive close. In the screaming aftermath, chest beading with sweat and heaving, Joe lets the mic fall from his mouth, grinning wildly, eyes alight, so beautiful and untouchable that Nicky’s stomach tightens.

    “Oh, Andy,” he says, resigned to his fate.

    She taps her bottle to his arm, just says, “You’re welcome.”

    Nicky gets turned into an owl

    Summary

    Nicky had thought it would be an easy enough bet.

    All he had to do was avoid dating for the entirety of Lent - and considering he’d been single for a while (and deep in the final stretch of his doctorate), it seemed like a downright simple way to help raise funds for the local interfaith center.

    Of course that was before Joe arrived.
    Joe - with dimples, doe eyes, and curls and who actually seemed interested in him . . .

    He could do this.
    It was only forty days.
    Easy peasy.

    Joe stumbles out of his bedroom. The morning sunlight filters in through the apartment window, painting the living room in golden hues. Nicky's curled up in a chair with a book and a cup of coffee so strong it's probably what woke Joe from his slumber in the first place.

    It's an idyllic scene. If only Joe had the mood to match.

    Or: Joe hasn't had much luck with sex partners, Nicky offers a helping hand.

    Summary

    There are buzzards circling above the barn, at least twenty of them, huge wingspans with sharp, dark feathers, carrion-eaters. There is smoke on the air, and when Marcus stumbles out of his stolen truck, he sees why — the far side of the barn is half scorched, blackened siding pushed out of the ground like crooked teeth, specks of ash floating on the breeze, sticking to Marcus’s skin and clothing. Inside, someone is laughing.

    Tomas is laughing.

    “Are we done for today?” Joe asked with a deep sigh, rubbing his eyes.

    He had just finished sanitising everything in the room, watching as Nile waved the latest (very satisfied) client of this very long day as they left the shop. His apprentice-slash-assistant joined him with a mug of fresh tea and shook her head, swapping out the fresh brew for the bottle of rubbing alcohol Joe was holding.

    “No, we still have a client waiting in the other room. He says it’s a cover up job, but by how tense he looks you’d think it was his first time,” she commented as she wiped the tattoo gun again. Joe let her; twice was always better than once in his line of work.

    “Right, right. I forgot it was scheduled for today,” he said, taking a fortifying sip of Assam melody.

    Summary

    The “Partners Weekend” at Merrick Industries was a bit of a joke, and in more ways than one. Who actually had time to spend a long couples weekend with people you worked with? But Joe had slaved away too many hours at his desk to blow off his chance at a promotion just like that. Particularly when all he had to actually do for it was spend a weekend in some manor house in the English countryside with his colleagues.

    Which led him to his current predicament: Who of his friends would agree to pose as his spouse for four days – and at one week’s notice?

    Double fake-dating AU: Joe asks Quynh to pretend to be his wife for an important work social at Merrick Industries. Andy brings her good friend Nicky under a similar guise. Only of course none of them is actually straight, and of course none of them is willing to admit that.

    A dumbasses-to-lovers story.
