    Summary

    In the middle of their second year, Draco and Harry discover they're soulmates and do their best to keep it a secret from everyone.

    Their best isn't perfect.

    ~

    “Are you trying to get killed, Potter?” Malfoy drawls, stalking forward. Quick as a serpent himself, he reaches out and grabs the snake just below the head. It thrashes in his grip, but is no longer able to bite anyone. “This is a poisonous snake, and I doubt anyone brought a bezor with them.”

    Harry glares. He opens his mouth, and feels the beginning the snake’s language pass his lips, and this isn’t what he wants, what’s the point of insulting Malfoy if he can’t understand him –

    Malfoy’s eyes widen. He slaps his hand over Harry’s mouth, “Potter, what the hell–”

    Summary

    Parson gestures with his spoon toward Hawke. “So am I allowed to ask about the service dog or is that not PC?”

    “My medical history is more of a 3rd date conversation," Eli says.

    “Oh? Why’s that?”

    “Because. No one sticks around afterward and I like to live in glorious denial for a short period beforehand.”

    It comes out more self-deprecating than he intended.

    Parson looks…thoughtful. “Well, does this count as one or two?

    “Pardon?”

    “This. Ice cream. I mean, technically it’s a second location, but still the same night. So is this one date or two?”

    “One,” Eli says firmly. “If it’s happening within the same three-hour period.”

    “You’re the expert,” Parson says, which, he’s really, really, not, but ok.

    “So still two dates to go then?” Parson continues.

    “I—what?”

    “We’ve got a roadie coming up but then we’re home for almost two weeks. When does your semester start?”

    “You want to do this again?” Eli asks.

    Parson stops idly twirling his spoon.

    “You don’t?”

    He does, Eli realizes. He really does. Because apparently he actually likes Kent fucking Parson.

    Summary

    “Yeah, dude, I guess. But, like, this is a fuckin’ liberal arts college, brah. Isn’t everyone in a band?”
    “I don’t know. I’ve never met anyone in a band before. I’m not in a band. Well, I’m in some school bands, but that’s not really… um. What kind of music do you play?”
    “…Well.”


    In which instead of actually playing hockey, the guys play shitty (pun intended) DIY punk in a band called Soft Hands. Classically-trained pianist Eric Bittle doesn’t quite know what has hit him.

    Summary

    William Poindexter is no stranger to small towns but he has yet to see one quite like Gravity Falls. Here, a baker tries to feed him his own weight in buttermilk pie. Two guys want him to repair their multidimensional portal in exchange for shelter. And a mustachioed reporter holds court in the local diner, campaigning for Gnome Inclusion.

    Something is fishy and Will isn't talking about the mermaid he's almost, not quite, more than 50% sure he'd seen floating around the lake.

    And that's before Derek Nurse comes to town, bearing an insufferable New Yorker grin and the possessed best friend story to end all other possessed best friend stories around.

    Now, if only that girl with woodcutter boots and her plump pet pig could stop giving him knowing looks.

    Summary

    Kent Parson wakes up the day after Cup Day in bed with a stranger. He's expecting to have hooked up with a Jack Zimmermann look-a-like. He is not expecting to see Jack Zimmermann’s boyfriend sound asleep beside him, dressed in what looks like one of his old Aces’ jerseys and nothing else.

    Kent stares. And stares. And stares some more. Completely eloquently, for the third time that morning, he says, “What the fuck.”

    --

    Or, Kent Parson swaps places with an alternate version of himself who happens to be madly in love with one Eric R. Bittle. It goes about as well as you'd expect.
