    Summary

    Ted wraps his arms around Bill's waist and leans in closer to him. His hair has gotten pretty long recently, and it tickles Bill's cheeks as they move together.

    "You making pancakes?"

    "Yeah, dude. It's the only thing I can make."

    Ted laughs, the sound of it muffled by Bill's hair. He shifts slightly, moving to rest their temples together, and shifts his gaze towards the pancake currently being cooked.

    "That's okay. Your pancakes are most excellent." He can feel the way Ted's words slide across his skin, leaving streaks of warmth behind them, and if Bill wasn't cooking he would close his eyes and lean into it, chasing the feeling a little more each time Ted speaks.

    Summary

    He feels a soft pressure over his ears and turns his head to find Marko smiling at him as he transfers ownership of the headphones to him. Marko's hand slides down Paul's arm, stopping to rest just above his elbow. Paul turns the music up louder, hoping to drown out the screaming going on in the back of his mind.

    Summary

    The sweet melody of "You Really Got Me" is drifting through the air, and Ted finds himself humming along. He imagines hearing it from the radio of Bill's (Missy's) car as the two of them speed off to who-knows-where, free of homework and Ted's dad and all other sources of stress. They'd spend a weekend in a big city and go to concerts every night, drowning all their troubles in music. If Ted really lets his thoughts go wild he can imagine Bill placing a hand on the curve of his jaw at one of those concerts, tugging Ted towards him. Maybe his other hand would come to rest on Ted's hip and maybe his chest would be flush against Ted's. And maybe, just maybe, he would lean in, looking up at Ted from under his eyelashes, and say -

    "Ted, dude!" Ted's daydream shatters at the sound of Bill shouting from the other side of the door. He knocks, loudly, and shouts again. "Can I come in?"

    Summary

    When Ted falls off a ladder working on the house in 2015 and hits his head, he wakes up with a most egregious side effect - he doesn't remember anything after the 1991 Battle of the Bands. And there's a lot it seems like he's missing. He and Bill have daughters, and a big shared house - but Liz and Jo are nowhere to be seen. So why is Ted wearing a wedding ring? And why does Bill act so weird when Ted brings them up? Bogus.
