    Summary

    “Kie, you need a ride home?” John B offers, leaning back from the driver’s seat.

    “The reaction is instantaneous, the grip in her stomach. Home. There’s been no time to go over what happened, today, to bring the others up to speed – besides Pope, but Pope is not here. It’s still so fresh, too raw. Kiara schools her expression best she can, hides it all underneath an unconvinced smile. “No, ah, I– my parents kicked me out, actually.”


    Missing scene in episode 6. After Renfield attacks Heyward in front of his store, Pope goes home for the night with him. The others quietly file inside the Twinkie and drive back to the Chateau. JJ and Kie have a moment, bonding over shitty parents and found family.

    Summary

    “Did you mean it?”

    “The thank you? Hell yeah! I mean, I’d be a fuckin’ goner if you hadn’t screeched in there, Die Hard style, and just -”

    “No. God, no, not that. What you said about ending up in jail.”

    “Yeah, of course. Come on, Kie. Not like that’s the first time you’ve heard me say that.”

    “Yeah, well, it used to be a lot funnier before our best friend actually ended up in jail.”

    --

    After the botched jailbreak attempt, the remaining Pogues return to the Chateau. JJ’s words continue echoing in Kie’s brain, about how he’s just going to end up in jail anyways. On another night, maybe she would’ve let him get away with it. But tonight she’s determined to talk some sense into that thick head of his.

    Set after the events of S2E5. Written for Jiara Week, Day 2 - Missing Moments

    Summary

    Nancy raises her eyebrow, turning her body towards him more fully. She flips her hair behind her shoulder and circles the rim of her glass with her finger, dragging her gaze over his body—quick enough so he notices, but not slow enough to seem creepy. She smirks. “They still kept you on after that? You must be pretty good at your job.”

    He smiles, eyes sparkling as he gives her a similar once over, and heat bubbles in Nancy’s veins at the clear interest in his eyes. “Oh, I’m very good at it. One of my many talents.”

    "Sure."

    “You don’t sound like you believe me.”

    Nancy scoffs. “I’m just keeping an open mind. Don’t want to get my hopes up.”

    He smirks. “Any way I can persuade you to change your mind?”

    Summary

    “I can’t ask you to do this.”

    Ace is sitting behind Florence’s steering wheel, hands at 10 and 2 and gripping it so tightly they look like topographical maps — tendons as mountain ridges, veins winding like mighty rivers. His face is lit only by the lamppost on the curb; it leaves half of his profile cloaked in deep black, the other painted a bloodless, muted yellow. 

    For the first time, Nancy can look at him and see that he’s older than her. The extra years are drawn in the lines framing his full lips, in the purplish shadows haunting his hollow eyes. 

    “You’re not asking,” she says, clicking the seatbelt around her waist and staring straight ahead, not allowing herself a final glimpse of her house, squatting familiar and forsaken in the rearview mirror. “Let’s go.”
