    Summary

    Yancy lives through the Knifehead attack, and the Becket Brothers recover to fight on in Gipsy Danger - though not without consequences. When the Jaeger program is decommissioned, they're packed off to Hong Kong with everyone else.

    Mako restores a different Jaeger, and Operation Pitfall is much more of a success.

    Cancelling the apocalypse doesn't mean that things are over, though.

    Summary

    Aksinya settled when Illya was thirteen, neither early nor late, and this is the only reason he was allowed into Special Forces and not abandoned to the winter, or worse.

    A desert cat dæmon is unusual in Western Siberia, but Illya and Aksinya are clever and faithful and strong enough that no one says anything to their faces. The psychologists who vet them after every few missions argue that perhaps it is understandable; Illya's childhood was so disturbed, they say, that of course his dæmon chose an unusual shape; the country did not do enough to reassure a young Illya Kuryakin that as long as he was diligent and useful to his superiors, he would always have a place among them. Aksinya's shape is not an early indication of a traitorous heart, merely a weak one.

    (or his dark materials fusion fic. illya kuryakin is a man with a foreigner's daemon, gaby teller gets shit done, and solo is solo, which is to say weird and half-witch. oh, and udo teller is trying to break between worlds despite dr. lyra silvertongue's express warnings not to. those crazy fascists, right?)

    Summary

    The holidays are an uneventful time for Jason Todd.

    With nothing better to do, Jason makes an ad offering his "services" to any poor soul who wants to spend Thanksgiving with him. He can be that obnoxious boyfriend your parents hate, and his only payment? Food.

    There's one catch: he never expected anyone to seriously answer back.

    Summary

    “We going to get somewhere anytime soon?” Dom said.

    Brian was staring out the windshield. “Do you trust me?”

    “What the fuck kind of question is that?” Dom said.

    “If you say yes, I’m going to take you on the worst fucking ride of your life,” Brian said. “Do you trust me?”
