    Summary

    They couldn’t come back together after six years apart and tell themselves that this was love that they were making.
    Not with all that radio silence.
    Harry tried to keep it all down, lodged under the lump in his throat. He needed something to focus on, something to keep him out of his thoughts, so that he could go along with this because he didn’t want Louis to take his hands off him.
    He didn’t want that to happen.
    But. But he needed it to.
    “Wait,” Harry coughed out, his voice trembling, “Stop.”
    Louis looked up at him with wide eyes.
    “I— I need to stop,” Harry confessed, trying desperately to keep his voice straight.
    “What is it?” Louis asked, full of concern.
    “I can’t do this. I— I can’t play along. You left me and I need answers, Louis.”
    His voice caught on the end of his name.

    AKA: Harry is a journalist that goes to Lake Tekapo, New Zealand, to look into a girl’s disappearance after a year of no movement from police. What he finds instead is his ex boyfriend Louis, who, six years earlier, ghosted him after five months of dating in university. A story of trauma, secrets, and the power of finally letting people in.

    Summary

    “Eliot, Eliot, I have so much to tell you,” Fen said. She pulled back and smiled at him. God, he had missed her. He hadn’t realized how much. “Josh told me about an Earth tradition called ‘divorce’, and I divorced you while you were away.”

    “Uh, that’s … good,” Eliot said. He had taken off his wedding ring years ago, when he and Quentin got together again, but this was still, somehow, a surprise.

    Summary

    “Thanks for bringing me here,” Michael says. Before he loses the nerve he lays down too, his jean jacket rustling against the blankets that are permanent inhabitants of the pickup.

    “You’re welcome,” Alex says. “I mean, I said I would.”

    Michael wants to look at him but doesn’t risk it. “Wasn’t sure if you remembered that.”

    OR -

    five places michael & alex went together, and one they didn't.

    Summary

    The work Harry does is justifiable. It’s justice. He works for his country, and his country is a republic—the magical side, anyway. It’s not laudable work, it’s not work he’s proud of, but it’s necessary work. Harry has always taken the necessary jobs that no one else has the stomach for.

    It’s just that he’s never deciphered a kill sheet and seen Draco Malfoy’s name on it.

    Career Choices: Harry: Hit Wizard; Draco: Anti-Government Extremist
