    “Come on. You know you want it. Say yes, Brienne. Be my life partner in serving booze.”

    She thought about it, but not for very long, “All right. Yes. I will.”

    “Amazing. Just promise me that when Jaime asks you to marry him, you’ll tell him you said yes to me first?”

    Summary

    Probably Declan should let Parrish know that he knew. That he watched Parrish watch him as he conversed breezily with Gansey. Shrewd eyes narrowed as he flirted with Ashley, leaning in close to whisper in her ear, relishing her shiver of anticipation.

    Five dollars for the show, kid. Leave the money on the nightstand.
     
    From the Declan/Adam Prompt Festival: When and how did Declan decide that Adam was a "creepily clever little fuck"?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Declan recognized that brand of hunger, that wanting, the tell-tale sign of a smooth façade, flimsy as papier-mâché, hastily slapped over jagged, yawning, howling desperation. But with all that, the kid was doing pretty well for himself. So he clearly knew how to survive—another mark that made him dangerous. No one that concerned with their own survival was trustworthy.

    Summary

    The man who had rented the room before him had also been a PI, and so Detective Shane Madej’s door still read CC TINSLEY & ASSOCIATES, PRIVATE INVESTIGATORS in peeling gold letters.

    Along with the door, he’d inherited Tinsley’s desk, his reputation, and one badly-lit corridor’s worth of neighbors. These included a disreputable tattooist, an off-book accountant and, of course, The Mystic Oracle: Spirit Connexions and Communications.

    LA, 1927 – Shane’s a jaded Private Eye. Ryan’s a two-bit Spiritualist. Together, they’re going to solve a murder.

    “Oh no,” Shane said at once. “No. Nope. I’m not writing Shane Madej, Ghost Detective on my door. Absolutely not. You can do what you want with your half of it, but I am Shane Madej, Private Investigator, and I will remain that way.”

    “Technically, you’re CC Tinsley and Associates, Private Investigators,” Ryan said. “But sure.”

    “I mean it, you know,” he says, and Adam meets his gaze. “Whatever weird shit you’re secretly all about, I’m not gonna judge.”

     

    “Why, because you know you don’t have a leg to stand on?”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    It scares Ronan, sometimes, how much he wants that. It’s wrong to think that way. Adam is his own person first and foremost, not Ronan’s. Ronan knows that, and he would never have it any other way. He would never ask Adam to stay.

    But still this side of Ronan flares up, hungry and possessive. It’s not about tethering Adam to this place; he just wants to know every part of him, that’s all, even the most shameful parts. Especially the most shameful parts. He wants Adam to know that he never has to hide, that he’s safe here, that Ronan would give him the world if he asked.

    At five fifty-three AM exactly, I was cleaning the heads of the espresso machine and arguing with Fred Durkin. Normally five fifty-three AM is a time of night that I don't see except to roll over in bed, but that morning I had maneuvered my way into opening the coffee shop for a very particular reason which Fred was obstructing.

    “Hell yeah!” Magnus roars, which, Jesus. Taako flinches back away from the noise, covers his ears. Magnus, says, “Sorry, sorry, but, Taako! Hell yeah!” He holds his hand out for a high five.

    Taako performs the congratulatory high-five. Merle appears to be – crying?

    “Old man,” Taako says, alarmed, “I think you’re, uh. Having an allergic reaction.”

    “I’m so proud of you,” the old man says. He wipes his eyes with his beard, and then blows his nose on it.

    "They don't want it to be real," Laurent says. He touches lightly, with his fingertips, where he's written LOVE WINS. "They want us to sell them a fantasy, and they want just enough reality that they can pretend it might happen to them, one day."

    Laurent catches Jokaste looking at Damen's bare forearms--she turns away from the camera to cough delicately into her wrist, and uses the motion to send Laurent a wink--and then catches Nikandros looking at Laurent as though he's memorising his face to describe to a police sketch artist. Laurent throws a sweet smile back, and has the satisfaction of seeing the man's expression waver. Nikandros can think whatever he wants of Laurent and his trashy, sensationalist, exploitative show. Laurent's gut has a sense for ratings, and his are going to be great.
