    Summary

    The cashier stares at the computer screen as they pick up their trays. “Damn,” she says. She glances at Jack and hands his card back. “You’ve got the most meal points I’ve ever seen.”
    “Oh?”
    She tilts the screen toward them. “Especially at this point in the semester? Most people are at, like, five hundred? Max? But—”
    The screen says, Meal Plan: 1938.
    Bitty, Holster, and Lardo crowd around the computer in something close to awed silence. Jack can almost hear Holster calculating how many boiled eggs that’d buy him.
    “You have great power,” Holster says finally. His face for once is entirely solemn. “Use it wisely.”

    Summary

    Stiles thought it would be easy doing janitorial work for an office. At first, it really was. The job only took a few hours in the evenings and it helped pay for rent and college. Sure, Hale Industries took up an entire floor in one of the downtown financial buildings, but the place was new and easy to care for. He didn’t even have to spend much time cleaning the huge corner office, because the trash was nearly always empty and the office itself was spotless, like no one used it.

    It was basically the perfect college job. At least, until the boss started staying late.

    Summary

    “What is with that sweater, dude?”

    Derek ducks his head to look at it, abashed. “Uh- Mrs Hernandez knitted it for me. It’s an early Christmas gift.” He smooths it down self-consciously.

    Stiles cocks an eyebrow.

    “What? She’s my neighbor and sometimes I-” Derek trails off. Stiles’ other eyebrow rises to join the first, and Derek sighs. “Sometimes I help her carry her groceries."

    Of course he does. One day maybe Stiles will stop being in love with Derek Hale, but today is not that day.

    Summary

    Jack looks at her and then puts her luggage down and leans in, grabs her into a full-body hug, right there on the sidewalk, holding her so close. She can’t remember when he last hugged her this hard. “He told his parents. About being gay. About us,” he says into her shoulder. “They were awful.”
