    Summary

    At the fourth stumble of the morning, Geralt’s patience breaks. Fine, the little fool is too stubborn to see he should leave and get it over with. Geralt will do the hard work for him, will simply move so fast that the bard has no choice but to end this farce already. He shifts his posture, squeezing Roach gently with his legs to urge her on faster-

    -and nearly goes flying purely out of surprise when she gives him a warning buck, a single crow hop before she settles again.

    Summary

    Director of a science, art and literature festival celebrating all aspects of humanity, Aziraphale is feeling nervous about meeting one of the presenters - TV astrophysicist Dr Anthony Crowley, whose work he has admired for years.

    The fact that Aziraphale has an enormous crush on him might have something to do with it too.

    Summary

    They’ve finished eating, but Eddie doesn’t want to get up from the table.

    He’s been at Buck’s for a couple of hours already, having arrived in time for them to prep dinner together, the quick collision of their knives against the cutting board such a contrast to the way they’d moved around each other, settled into the rhythm of Buck’s playlist, one probably far too soft for a meal shared between friends. After a while, Buck had taken over most of the cooking while Eddie hovered nearby, one hand light at Buck’s hip whenever Eddie had reached past him to steal a bite of something, Buck turning into the touch every time, just for the chance to swat him away. And then they’d made their way to the table to eat, reliably comfortable there whether Chris is with them or not.

    Right now, he’s not. Hasn’t been the last couple of times, actually, and however much Eddie has complained about that before, tonight he watches Buck’s cheeks start to go pink when his gaze lingers too long, and he can’t wish for anything but the chance to promise Buck forever just to see what color they might turn then.

    ***

    Set sometime in the middle of s6, just a quiet surprise in the middle of Buck's kitchen.
