    Summary

    **COMPLETE!** Protecting the Quartermaster entails a special set of circumstances, and Q is the last one to know.

    Excerpt:

    “Your identity has been compromised,” M said as he leaned forward in his chair, his features grim even as his tone remained even and calm. “I am standing you down from all your duties in Q branch. Kindly hand in all personal computers and devices. I am placing you on administrative leave, effective immediately. You need to disappear for a while, Q, for your own safety. Think of this as the holiday you never had these past two years. We will get down to the bottom of this and repair the damage done; otherwise I shall have to ask you to step down.”

    Q gaped at him, finally speechless.

    “At any rate, quartermasters are entitled to double-O agents as bodyguards, when the need arises, and he personally volunteered,” M continued as though he’d not just dropped the equivalent of a bomb and a death sentence through slow torture rolled into one, “and I do agree that under the circumstances, 007 would be the best choice as your bodyguard.”

    Summary

    In the modern world, soulmates were the focus of most people’s lives. Making contact, finding them, and then choosing their company over all others. If Jean-Claude were honest, this had always been the feeling for soulmates, even when it was an impossible dream. But in an era with the highest level of literacy the world had ever seen, as well as easily accessible ink and pens, even the poorest person had a chance to find their soulmate. It wasn’t so in the time he was born.

    But even in such a miraculous time, there was still one harsh truth about soulmates that no one wanted to admit. Not everyone had a soulmate. Some people could write on their skin for their whole lives and never once get a response. Jean-Claude never did, and then he died. After that, he thought soulmates would never cross his mind again, because once a soulmate died, the connection was broken forever. Except… some vampires found their soulmates long after their human lifespan had passed.

    This was not a good thing.

    Summary

    “So, anyway,” Bitty continues, bright as he can, “it was like when you’re a teenager and your Moo Maw tells you to always wear clean underwear, in case you get hit by a bus? Except I wasn’t wearing any underwear at all, and instead of a bus it was my boyfriend fuckin’ somebody else.”

    “My moo-what now?” the clipboard guy mutters.
    “I think it’s some kind of hillbilly thing,” the glasses guy retorts.


    When Eric Bittle catches his boyfriend cheating on him in their own home, he takes to Craigslist to find replacement accommodation -- and ends up in a loft with three men, one of whom may have been put on this Earth to test him.

    Summary

    "Well. I'm flattered and insulted. Just another afternoon with Mycroft Holmes."

    "I do so like to be consistent."

    There were any number of reasons why this was a terrible idea—not the least of which was that Mycroft seemed to think that making Greg angry amounted to a sort of charm.
