    Summary

    Darcy is thirty feet out of Stark-cum-Avengers Tower when she starts craving cinnamon rolls--the sticky-sweet iced-up old-fashioned kind, yummy and messy and dripping gooshy icing all over your mouth and hands and down your yuuuup, yup, that is a super, super fertile omega that she is smelling, holy shit is it ever.

    “Jesus Christ,” she groans in frustration, then follows her alpha instincts (and, more easily and importantly, her nose) to go track them down. They’re in the middle of New York City; middle of the day or not, not checking on somebody who smells like that is, like, the ultimate dick move.

    Summary

    Alternatively, “Kent and Alexei’s Guide on How to Screw Around and (Not) Talk about Feelings”

    The year in which Kent Parson, famous NHL player and renowned (read: lonely) party animal, reads trashy erotic novels, fails to learn Russian from Alexei’s mom through elaborate contemporary dance, co-adopts a dog, and fucks his way into domesticity and, surprisingly, a functional relationship.

    Summary

    The trick, Grantaire decided long ago, is simply to keep Enjolras from realizing just how much he likes him, at all costs.

    That’s hardly news. He’s had that policy for years and years. He’s had that policy since he first met Enjolras, the both of them in college and Enjolras blindingly young and passionate and beautiful (and impossibly scrawny and dorky and painfully genuine), because, by no coincidence at all, that’s also pretty much when he fell in love with him.

    Summary

    There's a sudden tension at one end of the table: an indrawn breath, an electromagnet switched on. Courfeyrac glances towards the head of the table, and Grantaire--her peripheral vision blinkered by her hood--is treated to a truly exciting display of alarm from him. Courfeyrac opens his mouth, about to cut off--

    "If you need a date for the night…"

    And he's too late. Grantaire turns, and catches Enjolras's gaze full in the face.

    --

    (In which Grantaire's having a Week, but it could be so, so much worse. It could be last year.)

    Summary

    The first time Aphrodite appears in his workshop, Grantaire thinks he must be hallucinating.

    Life does not change very often, for the deathless gods.

    But Enjolras is quickly running out of places to hide from his relentless suitors. There is about one place where no one is likely to look for the god of love and beauty – the heart of Aetna, where the smithing god lives. Except Grantaire is not quite sure what Enjolras would ever be doing in a burning-hot furnace, watching him work day in, day out. And it might just turn out that despite their disagreements, they get along better than expected.

    Even the Fates know that this changes everything.
