    Summary

    It’s early on a bright mid-May morning when Shane Madej steps out of the car to begin the last real summer of his life.

    The year is 1963, he is twenty-two years old, and the summer’s stretched out like a promise in front of him: one last hurrah, before the desk waiting for him in his father’s office claims him.

    Or: the Dirty Dancing AU Shane Madej sort of a little bit asked for. ("A professional ballroom dancer…my stars!")

    Summary

    “I’m serious,” Ryan says. “Don’t go fucking up my body. I want that shit back in the same condition I left it.”

    “The same condition—Ryan. I’m not spending hours in a gym every day so you don’t lose muscle mass.”

    “I want you to treat my body with the respect you would a national park. Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but memories.”

    ***

    A certain meddling Voodoo Queen of New Orleans thinks Ryan and Shane need some new perspective on life. After an inadvisable ritual deposits Ryan in Shane’s body, and Shane in Ryan’s, the ghoulboys pursue some soul-searching and self-discovery to put things right. Sometimes in a sexy way.

    Summary

    Ryan grabs for Shane’s banana and takes a bite out of it. In his head it was supposed to be sexy, but he realizes as he’s chewing that it might hit a little close to home. Shane must be remembering the same thing, because he blanches and looks away.

    “Sorry, too soon?”

    “I’m having a Pavlovian response to the flash of your teeth around a phallic object,” Shane says, “and now my balls are trying to crawl back inside my body. Something tells me that’s not what you were going for.”

    “No,” Ryan agrees, still chewing.

    ***

    After months of mooning around each other, forces (read: alcohol, nerves, gravity, tender feelings) conspire to ruin Ryan and Shane’s first night together. With a little help from their friends, dramatic training montages set to 80’s rock anthems, and the early filmography of Harrison Ford, can our heroes get things back on track?

    Summary

    Ryan stops short in the doorway of his bedroom, banging his shoulder against the doorframe in his haste, because he’s too late. Shane’s kneeling in front of the bottom drawer of his bedside table, peering down at the contents, hand frozen in a hover like he’d been about to reach in. His face is a blank mask.

    “Ah. I keep the batteries in the top drawer. Not. Not the bottom one.”

    “Yes,” Shane says, cocking his head to the left in puzzlement, and then he pauses for a fraction of a second too long as he considers his words. “I can see that the batteries are not in the bottom drawer.”

    Summary

    "As I was saying," Curly continues with a pointed glare in Ryan's direction. "It's my honor to join the two of you in unholy matrimony. The rules are simple, you'll live together, plan one date each, and cherish each other. Til week do you part."
