    Summary

    The berth is quiet, deserted. Coffin racks and curtain rails rise ceiling-high on either side; Bradley cracks open a locker on the narrow strip of wall between bunks. It’ll be a dress uniform kind of evening.

    He’s taking his time about getting there.

    Summary

    On the first day of Maverick's new five-week intensive training programme, Hangman admits to being in love with Rooster.

    He doesn't seem worried about it. Neither is Rooster. Why not take what’s on offer and have some fun during downtime? Hangman’s the one who caught feelings, and that means Rooster gets to call the shots for once. This time, he’s going to be team leader.

    It’s just a shame no plan survives contact with the enemy.

    Summary

    An IRL photo prompt, that I saw years ago, and adored.

    'Dad took us to the water park. We are 26.'

    ...

    “What in the ever-loving fuck are those, Bradshaw?” Hangman bellows from the other side of the hanger as Rooster strolls in.

    To be fair, most of the rest of them look up and blink at Rooster’s garishly coloured Hawaiian board shorts.

    Rooster blows him a kiss and gives a two fingered reply.

    Summary

    “I’m still here.” he says, because it helps Bradley to be reminded sometimes. For all he’ll mouth off about Jake never shutting up, the sound of Jake’s voice can get him to drop the rigid set of his shoulders and relax, sit a little easier in the cockpit. “Still on your wing, Roo, just a little further away than normal.”

     

    Jake gets shot down on a mission, tracker blown to smithereens and on his own in enemy territory. The thing about Hangman is that he might be a damn good pilot but that means he comes with the bloody-mindedness to see his shit through. He's got a family to get back to.

    Summary

    “Why not?” Phoenix cried. “You’ve been circling each other for the better part of four years, and you’ve basically been eye fucking each other every night for the last two weeks, and he fucking defied our vice admiral’s direct orders to save your life a couple days ago. I think it’s safe to say he cares about you in a way that could maybe, maybe, be more than just being your friend.”

     

    in which asking Jake out on a date is a little more difficult than Bradley expects.
