    Summary

    “My true love will have hair the color of yellow apples,” and Jack Zimmermann will take a bite from the forbidden fruit, juice running down his chin. “My true love will be exactly five feet and six-and-a-half inches tall,” and he will chew a leaf from a tree of that same height. “My true love will be as sweet as sugar and sharp as lemon,” and he will drink half a glass of Great-Aunt Cathy’s lemonade, waiting until the last dregs of sugar hit his tongue. “And if a single one of these things is not to be, then let it be known—my true love shall not be he.”

    (He knows in his bones that this spell won’t ever come true. After all, his true love isn't real, and if he’s not real, then the curse can’t take him. That’s the whole point.)

    --

    Or, a Practical Magic AU. Wherein Jack Zimmermann must deal with family curses, hockey legacies, accidental manslaughter, Kent Parson’s obstinate death wish, and a snarky Southern kitchen warlock who won’t mind his own damn business.

    Summary

    It doesn't come out of nowhere, despite what Dylan probably thinks.

    And, okay, Mitch knows that the super adult thing to do would have been to just talk about it, sit down on the sofa and bring it up and give his reasons and whatever, but he's forever and always himself, so that's not how it goes. Mitch waits until Dylan starts eating his gross yogurt, and just when Dylan puts his fourth scoop into his mouth, Mitch says, "I think we should have sex."

    Dylan chokes on his mouthful of yogurt, walking the two steps to the sink so he can spit it out and continue coughing, and Mitch opens up his own jar of yogurt and digs in.

    Perfect.

    (or: Mitch is ace. That doesn't mean he isn't curious.)

    Summary

    Connor’s mind races. He’s got a pretty busy work week coming up, and he’s not sure what Mitch’s shifts are like, but— “Tomorrow morning?” he asks. “If you’re free?”

    “Uh, sure,” Mitch says. He glances at Dylan, then looks back at Connor. “Is your boyfriend coming on this date with us, honey?”

    Connor ignores the burn in his cheeks at the pet name. Dylan snorts. “You mean am I coming to your lame strategy meeting for fucking beer league?”

    Summary

    The last thing Carlton expected was for the Chief to inform him that he would be taking the person he's been dating for the past four months to a law enforcement retreat. This wasn't how he had anticipated introducing his significant other to his coworkers at the station. Especially because he wasn't dating anyone.

    Thankfully, there's Shawn Spencer, barista and psychic(??), to the rescue.

    Summary

    The bad news is that one of Lassiter's highest profile arrests has just escaped from prison. The worse news is that his best hope of tracking him down is a sleep-deprived Shawn Spencer.
