    Summary

    Babyfic, set in the not-very-distant future.

     
    Louis cuddles the baby against his chest. “I’m going to bloody murder you,” Louis says, clearly to Liam, but his tone is still baby-soft and sing-songy. “What the hell were you thinking?” Ailie reaches for Louis’s hair and tugs, and he pretends he’s going to eat her hand with a rumbly, “nom nom nom nom.” She laughs and claps.

     

    “Dunno,” says Liam honestly. He looks around his flat and sees all the scattered toys and bits of leftover meals lying around. It's a big space, but it's covered in baby debris. He doesn’t remember making such a mess. “I was at the hospital and I met Ailie and then I… I mean. Look at her.”

     

    “She’s beautiful,” says Louis, and Liam feels a bit proud, even though he had nothing to do with it. “And you’re an idiot.”

    Summary

    Harvey’s smiling, soft in a way that Mike recognizes, but after a few weeks without it, it's easier to note the intimacy, the surprising fondness from a man so guarded. It disarms him, and without thinking Mike reaches up to brush his fingers along Harvey's cheekbone then down the sinew of his neck.

    A hand shoots up and circles Mike's wrist, jerking him away.

    “Shit, sorry,” Mike breathes. “I -” For a breath, the overwhelming longing for things to return to normal - where Harvey took care of him, where they had each other’s backs - almost shoves an embarrassing sound from his gut, but Mike’s learned some control over the past few years so he wrenches his wrist free and passes the baby over, gently but without touching Harvey at all.

    “Gotta go. Thanks for the -”

    His throat starts to close so he stops talking, stumbles up, and throws his coat on before darting out the door.

    Harvey doesn't try to stop him.

    Summary

    Leaning in close, Harvey murmurs, “You’re awfully mouthy for this early in the evening.”

    Mike tilts his head, flirtatious confrontation as the car rolls to a stop. “Bit early in the evening to be discussing my mouth, don’t you think? Sir?”

    “Tell you what,” Harvey muses lowly. “You make me look good tonight, I’ll do more than just discuss it. Fair?”

    Mike gulps and nods, light-headed, and he doesn’t think it’s from yesterday’s blood loss. He can feel Harvey’s breath on his lips, smell his cologne, subtle and smooth, thinks maybe he’s gonna get luckier than he’d hoped, and then with a smirk Harvey reaches across his body and cracks open the door. “Out,” he commands, and Mike sighs, hauling his tired ass out of the car. Figures.

    Summary

    Louis is still going over the numbers for the meeting he’s supposed to be at, in like five minutes. Maybe. Louis isn’t really certain that’s right. He’s got Niall, the world’s best assistant he’s sure, good at both dealing with people over the phone, and doing clever coloured spreadsheets that make Louis able to handle his side of the business as CEO for his own record company.

    He just needs to drag himself out of bed in time and actually look at the bright green and orange spreadsheets.

    Someone’s in the way and instead of him pushing the door open with one shoulder, all his stuff, including the still hot tea, slip out of his hands. Just in the last minute, he finds his balance and manages to avoid sprawling out of the floor.

    Unlike the bloke who’s stock still, staring up at him unblinkingly from the floor

     

    Or: Liam’s already in a relationship when Louis meets him. It’s not a happy one.

    Summary

    Just like every year, "The Fight", the city's most prestigious boxing tournament for Alphas, is about to determine the Alpha Champion of the year. Of course, Harvey takes part in it, ready to defend his title.

    The training period is long and, because to have a Winning Champion on staff is also a huge asset to a law firm like Pearson Hardman, as a contestant Harvey is granted special treatment and he's being cut a lot of slack during the preparation time and the tournament itself.

    Nevertheless, Harvey has an important part at the firm, so he has to be kept in the loop at all times, and his signatures and his decisions are constantly needed, so his associate Mike Ross (a closeted omega posing for a beta) has to drive to the gym in a shady part of town on a daily basis to deliver files, to get Harvey's signature and to brief him on the goings-on at the firm.

    Even though Mike knows deep down that Harvey is as much his Alpha as he is Harvey's omega, he shies away from any kind of (romantic and/or sexual) relationship with Harvey. He's not going to give up what he's been fighting to maintain his entire life: his independence.
