    Summary

    The whole ship is like that: alive with light, as if light were the blood in its veins. It still bothers him when he's not tired enough to sleep, but he's starting to get used to it. Starting to appreciate that the thing he lives inside is almost as much of an organism as he is. Strange, but also strangely reassuring.

    Sometimes when he lies in the dark here, cocooned in his bunk, he wonders what it's like in the tube. If it's quiet. He hopes it's restful. Peaceful. Soft, like the sleep of late morning, with sun coming in from around the drapes. Steve wonders if the translucent panel that covers and shields and contains him also lets in light. If behind his closed eyelids, he can still see something, the way that Steve can when he shuts his own eyes here, now. If he is seeing a kind of permanent sunrise; a long dream of a slow dawn.

    Summary

    The hallways are clogged with witches, ghouls, goblins, spider-men, and a hulk. Foggy and Matt follow Lucy from door to door, Foggy making sure to mention the costumes that catch his eye. (He thinks he catches sight of a mini-Daredevil at one point but it turns out to be some kind of transforming robot knight Lucy recognizes from a kid’s show. It’s the biggest let down of Foggy’s night.)

    Most of their neighbors on the top floors of the building recognize them when they open the door, leaning down to shake Lucy’s hand when she offers it in introduction. “Babysitting duty.” Foggy explains, usually after a surprised, prying look shot between him and Matt.

    “Test drive?” Ms. Nasr asks knowingly, dropping a pack of fruit snacks into Lucy’s pillowcase. Matt blushes red, injured arm held stiffly at his side, free hand brushing Foggy’s wrist behind Lucy’s back. “Uh.” He says eloquently, and Foggy hurriedly reminds Lucy to say thank you and ushers them all to the next door.

    [Or: Matt's benched with an injury, Foggy's on babysitting duty, and Lucy Rand is a butterfly. A Halloween night with Nelson and Murdock.]

    Summary

    Matt looks even worse once he takes the helmet off, his eyes glassy and feverish as they blink back blood that’s dried tacky on his eyelashes. The cut on his eyebrow has closed, even Foggy can tell, but the way Matt keeps rubbing at his throat with the back of his hand and the way his eyes are dilated, black drowning out the hazel, makes him bite his lip with worry.
     
    In which Matt gets hit with a lust drug, and he finds himself on Foggy's fire escape. Because there can never be enough fics with Matt keeping tabs on Foggy after season 2.
