    Summary

    Jonny makes them a meal of sausage cakes with cheese and crackers and a strong batch of coffee, humming to himself because he doesn't want to turn on the radio. It's that time of night when all the stations play the latest news from the war, and Jonny doesn't want that invading their safe space, not now.

    Patrick makes a soft noise when he gets home, dropping his satchel next to the front door before coming up behind Jonny to wrap his arms around his waist where he's dishing the sausage cakes onto a plate. "You smell like the mill," he says, pressing his cheek against Jonny's back and leaning all of his weight into him.

    Summary

    And then there was Patrick, head turning, drawing Jon’s eyes in powerful magnetic flux, the slow smile dawning into a grin, and all Jon could think, as his heart burst in his chest, amidst the sound of the dagger and the cheers they hadn’t heard in far too long, was, oh. Oh.

    Sometimes it takes being hit over the head with it to realize the most important things.

    Summary

    Tony Stark is twenty-one when he loses his voice. It shouldn't matter, but in a world where the first words your Soulmate says to you are marked on your skin, it can be pretty damn annoying.

    Summary

    The doctor pulled out the teacher's chair and sat across from Steve, his hands folded and his face solemn and kindly. "It happens once in a while," he said. His voice was soft and gentle, and irrationally, it made Steve angry. Such ugly news ought to be delivered in a more fitting tone. "The most likely cause is that your intended mate died before you were born or shortly after they were born, before the bond had time to fully form. It's called a Type C or a Type--"

    Steve wasn't interested in the terminology. "Is that why I'm... like this?" He gestured down at his frail, sickly body.

    "Probably," the doctor said. "There are some further tests we can give you, down at the hospital, to determine--"

    "Why bother?" Steve growled, slumping back in his chair and crossing his arms. "My mate is dead and no one else is going to want me, not like this." Tears stung his eyes and he blinked them back furiously.

    "It's also possible, though less likely, that you're a Type A -- firstborn of the pairing -- but that your mate has simply not yet been born," the doctor said.
