    Summary

    A self-proclaimed ghost-finder may use nonconforming metaphysics in his seances, and a well-meaning friend begs Ned and Julian to come to the countryside to investigate. But a night spent in halls as hallowed as they are haunted might prove more than their match.

    Summary

    When Lena finds out Kara and Supergirl are lovers, of course she’s happy for them. Ecstatic, even. She’s always sworn no one could be good enough for her Kara, but Supergirl comes close. Nevermind that Supergirl abandons Kara on dates, drags her onto dangerous battlefields for “the story,” and doesn’t seem to give a flying hunk of kryptonite that Kara is constantly being kidnapped to bring Supergirl down. No, Lena is thrilled.

    The DEO stages a relationship between Kara Danvers and Supergirl to foil Cadmus. Lena doesn’t handle it as well as she could.

    Summary

    There's a tag hanging on his storage pod, instead of the clipboard that documents his progress. On that tag, there's a single word stamped in red: defective. NH-01987's feet stick on the metal of the catwalk. Behind the ever-present metallic mask, his eyes grow huge.

    He knows what that tag means. It means that, in the morning, while the other MT units are collected for training, a guard will come for him. He'll be restrained and escorted down the metal corridors toward the east wing, into the double-doors that house the correctional facility. But he won't be up for re-programming, not this time.

    This time, they'll strap him down to a table for the last time ever. They'll pick him apart, to try and learn what caused his failures – and he has so very many of them, no matter how hard he's tried.

    When they're finished, they'll take what's left to the crematory. That will be the end of him: a pile of ashes and a wisp of smoke.

    Summary

    “Hey there,” Alec says in the lowest, sexiest voice he can manage. It sounds vaguely disinterested but some people get off on that.

    “Hi,” the voice says.

    “Ready to have some fun?”

    The voice makes a small, sad noise.

    “Or not?” Alec tries hastily. He gets paid regardless of what they're talking about. “We can just chat for a while.”

    “What’s your name,” the voice says finally.

    “Uh, Chad,” Alec says. He was drunk when he picked his name, just as he was drunk when he answered the job wanted ad. He should have picked something sexy like Tristan, but he’s forever Chad now, the douchiest phone sex operator in history. He balances his bowl of macaroni carefully on his stomach and sneaks a quick bite.

    “You don’t sound like a Chad,” the voice says doubtfully.

    “Why the hell not?” Alec says before he can stop himself, mouth full of pasta.

    “--are you eating?”

    “No,” Alec lies and swallows.

     

    ---

    Alec is a bored phone sex operator. Bafflingly, Magnus just wants to talk about music.
