    Summary

    “You’re not the only strong one around here, Chat,” Marinette said. She looked a little winded, but she wasn’t struggling to hold him up.

    This close up, he could see the freckles on the bridge of her nose. He could see how that smug smile lit up her eyes. He could feel the strain of her arms—and wow, okay, he really wasn’t the only person around here with muscles.
     

     

    Six times Marinette carried Adrien (plus one time he carried her).

    Summary

    In the bright fluorescent light of the coffee shop, Chuck’s eyes don’t really show from behind his overgrown bangs. He’s about Mike’s age, and just kind of looks like a regular homeless kid, though not one dressed for Detroit in November. His hair’s shaggy and kind of greasy, and he’s got really rough-looking hands, all scabby and chapped-looking under a layer of dark grime. The seams on his faded blue shirt look uneven, hand-stitched or at least hand-repaired, and Mike’s pretty sure the soles of his shoes are cut from tires. There are long, thin pale scars that stretch along his arms, under his sleeves, up his throat and over his face to his eyes, straight and stark as wires, and almost invisible until they catch the light just right. Scar art or cyborg tech, Mike couldn’t guess.

    The future is looking like it’s a bit more Terminator than Jetsons, unfortunately.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Mike’s out on a pizza run when someone opens his door.

    This is weird for a couple reasons: the first is that the car door should be locked from the inside. The other is that the guy helps himself right into Mike’s passenger seat, and buckles himself in, folding his long arms and legs up awkwardly to fit.

    The other reason is that his eyes are lit up blue from the inside. Not glinting cool-white from street lights or anything, but actually shining an electric blue from the rings of his irises, and one of his big pale hands is holding a rectangular pane of light like holograms are a thing now.

    The traffic lights go green.

    The new patch didn't work. Have you tried turning him off and then on again?

    Summary

    Naturally, Mike neglects to tell anyone that he's coming down with something until he screeches into the garage after taking out a few Kanebots, gets out of Mutt and promptly face-plants into the asphalt.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Jacob finds Texas staring down a large cookpot and a chicken. Texas picks the chicken up. Makes it do a few high kicks with the appropriate sound effects. Puts the chicken back down. Stares at the chicken, and then the pot. Puts the chicken in the pot. Takes it out. Stages an epic fight scene between the chicken and the spatula. Puts the chicken back down.

    "Need a hand?" Jacob says from the doorway.

    "No! Nope, everything is going fine. I was just-- tenderizing the meat. Yep. That meat sure is tenderized," Texas says with a jump, patting the chicken.

    "Looks good to me," Jacob agrees.

    "Aren't you vegetarian?" Texas says dubiously.

    "Yep, but I can still discern a well-tenderized chicken."

    Texas shrugs. "Just trying to remember what went into the soup my sisters made when I was sick. I know there was definitely chicken. Maybe kimchi. Do you think muscle mulch would be good in there?" Texas looks into the pot, as if contemplating how to make it yield up its secrets.

    Jacob shrugs. "Give it a try-- nothing wrong with kitchen experimentation."

    --

    "Man, this is delicious," Mike says, cradling the bowl close to his chest and taking small sips.

    ("...Is he delirious?" Dutch whispers behind his back.

    "Definitely," answers Chuck.)
