    Summary

    One night near the end of first semester 1L finals, just a few weeks before the two-year anniversary of their first kiss, Alex finds himself looking up from his desk with its messy piles of color-coded notes and tabbed textbooks to see Henry asleep on the couch, clearly having dozed off waiting for him to come to bed, and unbidden he thinks, God, I’m going to marry this man.

    It startles him, the spike of adrenaline that floods through him waking him up and bringing the parts of his brain turning over concepts like proximate cause and strict liability to a standstill as he stares at Henry.

     

    I want to marry this man.

    Summary

    "Byers does this thing every semester called the Muse Project, where you pick a person or a subject and your final piece for the course has to focus on them. Then at the end of the semester, there’s this coffeehouse where everyone invites their muse and shares their work. So obviously everyone picks whoever they’re dating at the time, and then they break up halfway through the semester and all the writing turns super angsty. Which would be fine, except I don’t write about people, like, ever.”

    That’s a lie. He does write about people, but always in an abstract sense, and never more than once—the curve of a hip under his hand or the promise of a kiss on his neck, nothing you could spend a semester on. Before Samwell, and sometimes still, there never seems to be anyone permanent enough to write about.

    A minute or so goes by before Dex speaks. “Does it have to be romantic?”

    “Uh, no, not really. Just someone that inspires you.”

    “So write about me.”

    Summary

    Aziraphale keeps a list.

    Islington, caged beneath London (Check the locks upon leaving).
    Raguel, LA (be certain his rent is paid).
    Michael, Heaven, but adores Earth (keep away from bulls).
    Castiel, alternate universe (don't ever go to that horrid place).

    and, lately, Lucifer Morningstar, LA, who seems the sanest of the lot. It's all very confusing.

    Amenadiel, LA, is also on the list, but Aziraphale reported to Amenadiel in the Rebellion and, well, some things are too strange for him even to tolerate.

    Crowley's just tired of flying over the Atlantic. And turns out his boss? Well, he's kind of alright.
