    Summary

    And you shouldn’t be surprised when Yang writes your name on an envelope, putting it in your hands. She looks at you and you look back. There’s a tilt to her eyebrows that means she’s not going to let this go. “You’re coming to my birthday, okay?”
    ...
    "I’ll be at your party.” She goes back to her markers with a genuine smile, so purely happy just because you said you’d be there, and you have to pretend that her love doesn’t change you.

    Summary

    “Come in, Martin,” he says, not looking up from his notes. 

    “Hi, Jon,” he says, and Jon stops writing at the sound of his voice. “We’re out of the green tea, but we’ve got lemon?” 

    Jon looks at him. Martin smiles at him in his usual tentative way as he sets the mug of tea down on Jon’s desk. Heat spikes so sharply in his gut that he twitches with it. 

    “Thank you, Martin,” he says, mouth dry, and he stands up. 

    “Oh,” he says, sounding almost surprised. He smiles again. “No-- no problem-- um, what are you--” 

    Jon takes Martin by the shoulders, leans up on the tips of his toes, and kisses him.

    Summary

    "Jon didn’t know if his marriage was abusive or not. It didn’t matter, though, because he wasn’t trapped. He could leave if he wanted. 

    But leaving would be giving up Jonah’s gift, and Jon wouldn’t do that. Couldn’t do that. He still had nightmares of teeth and claws and blood, not-quite faded memories of his life before. Jonah had saved him from that, and it was a gift worth the tears and bruises and fear.

    Jon’s relationship with Jonah was a delicate balance. If Jonah pushed too hard, Jon would leave. If Jon pushed too hard, Jonah would cast him out. The threat of their arrangement coming to an end was enough to keep them both in line."

    Jon is stuck with a jealous, cruel sorcerer husband. And then a baker moves into town.

    Summary

    “Jon,” Martin interrupts him. “Are you asking me if I want to have a baby with you?”

    “Well, sort of. And like I said,” Jon says helplessly. “Six to ten babies.”

    Summary

    Jon spends his two free hours in the middle of the day in a little half-desk, half-cubicle in the far corner of the fourth floor of the main library, right next to a wall of large windows overlooking one of the student garages. The area is so secluded that Jon is pretty sure most people think the fourth floor of the main library ends about two shelves over. Well, at least everyone but the student that’s started to sit in the desk pressed against the back of his.
