    Summary

    Parker’s familiar is - perhaps predictably - a cat.

    She’s a black cat with a few tufts of dark grey fur here and there. The cat’s name is Frida and she stalks around with the air of someone who should not be messed with. Which, to be fair, she definitely shouldn’t be.

    Summary

    It’s five AM and there are certain things that Eliot expects when he staggers down the hall, still half-asleep, and tripping some new laser that Hardison installed for Parker to ‘practice on’ is not one of them. He stubs his toe against the doorframe and swears loud enough to wake the neighbors - if the blaring alarm wasn’t already enough to wake them. Hardison crashes through the bedroom door seconds later, bleary-eyed and frantically stabbing a tablet until - finally - the beeping stops.

    Summary

    Eliot can’t remember when eating Chinese takeout after a job turned into occasional team dinners, or when those team dinners turned into regularly-scheduled ‘family nights’, as Parker dubbed them one night. He supposes it doesn’t quite matter when the family nights started. He enjoys them all the same.

    Summary

    Someone is crying. That noise is a sob, someone gasping for air as they cry. Parker doesn’t quite know what to do. Do you say anything to someone who’s crying alone in their shower at three in the morning? She doesn’t think so. Still, it doesn’t feel quite right just to walk away.

    Summary

    The safe house is a shack, because you don’t do a retrieval job anywhere near the Peru-Colombia border and not get a shack as a safe house. At least, Quinn’s never had that happen, and he’s been doing this a long time. At least there’s running water, Quinn thinks, as he does his best to keep Spencer sitting upright in the one chair the place has. God, they both need to start being smarter about the jobs they agree to.

    Summary

    There’s a family that lives down the street. Parker watches them sometimes, hides in the bushes outside their dining room window and hugs Bunny tight against that ache in her chest as she looks at a scene that might as well be in a movie.

    Summary

    The first time Parker reaches out and touches Eliot’s hair, he nearly hits her. The sheer - Audacity? Stupidity? - of it shocks him. He’s dangerous and has told her as much. But there’s Parker, gently petting at his hair like he’s a cat she’s trying to befriend.

    Summary

    Eliot curls into himself, shielding his sides in an attempt to reduce the places his attacker can hurt him. But he’s already hurt, already spiraling, because his attacker figured out Eliot’s weak spot. He’s forcing a drop and Eliot is terrified of what might happen while he’s under, when he’s helpless to fight against the voice of a Dominant.

    Summary

    “See, this is why people are starting to think you’re crazy.” Sterling drawls from the office door. Nate doesn’t look up from the file he’s currently staring at, just flips Sterling off. God, the man’s insufferable.

    Or: The story of how Nate and Sophie first meet.

    Summary

    Eliot teaches Parker how to make pretzels on a rainy Tuesday morning.

    The fact that it’s raining has little to do with pretzels and plenty to do with Parker trailing after Eliot as he heads to the brew pub’s kitchen and pulling out cookbook after cookbook until Eliot gets annoyed with the mess and asks what she’s looking for.

    Summary

    Trust is an odd thing in their world. Money and power and greed can make a person do things that they shouldn’t. It takes a brave person to set that all aside and believe that another person can be exactly who they promise they are. It requires putting aside every past experience that says otherwise and putting faith in someone else. It takes believing in goodness and that humans are fundamentally kind.

    Trust doesn’t come easily, and that’s why Quinn cherishes Eliot’s trust - and his submission - so much.

    Summary

    Parker decides that the man doesn’t pose a risk and pokes him in the chest. Her finger meets with a hard surface, much more sturdy than human skin and bones. “You’re an android.” She says.

    “Yes. And you are human. What are my orders?”

    Parker studies the man - no, android - for a second. “Why did you say you were broken?”

    “I am broken.” The android repeats.

    Parker has taken a liking to this strange android. “Okay.” She says, and thinks. “Well, then we need to find a doctor. Are there doctors for androids?”

    Summary

    Nate’s phone rings one day as they’re sitting around planning the next job. It’s Sterling, unfortunately.

    “Do you have any idea why thirty pizzas were delivered to my house this evening?” Sterling barks into the phone. His accent gets funny when he’s mad, Nate thinks. “Thirty, Nathan!”

    “You’re still on this?” Hardison asks, because they’ve been having this discussion for a month and he still can’t convince her that their new next door neighbor isn’t immortal and/or a time traveler.

    Summary

    There are things that Parker understands - why vaults have security and why she likes the rush of wind in her hair when she rappels down a building and why being a mastermind is more than just planning a job - and there are things she most certainly does not. Hugs are one of those things.

    Summary

    Eliot makes stew on days when he has time. The hours that stew requires are a nice reminder that sometimes he does have time to savor life rather than rush through it. So on weekends when he’s got an afternoon to devote to cooking, he puts on some music and gets to work.

    Summary

    Parker may be the world’s best thief, and she can hold her own in a fight and plan a job with her eyes closed, but her attempts at grifting are worryingly bad. Sophie-using-a-computer bad. Hardison-cooking-anything-other-than-pizza-rolls bad. Nate’s-hair-on-a-humid-day bad. The last job, she was supposed to convince someone she was a college student from Sweden and instead ended up tasing a museum docent. Not exactly what they needed.

    Summary

    Parker is comfortable picking locks and weaving through lasers. She’s okay with tight spaces in air ducts and the wind in her face as she scales buildings. She likes moving without a sound and relying on her skills to get her out safely.

    Summary

    Christmas is, without question, Parker’s favorite holiday. There are presents and sparkly things and cookies. There isn’t much not to like, to be perfectly honest. The elf costumes are just a bonus.

    Summary

    Hardison is the one who helps Eliot the most when he has a bad nightmare. He knows the words to say and the ways to ground Eliot and how to keep him from going from a nightmare to a flashback. Parker tries, she really does, but words are still hard and she’s scared she might make the situation worse.
