    Summary

    “Dan had wished for someone peaceful because he was absolutely not peaceful. His mind never felt peaceful; it was a constant tempest of angst and worries and existential crises. He’d said bright clothes because he always wore black. Kind because he wasn’t always kind, he could be sarcastic and rude, on a bad day. Patient because, to love him, they would have to be patient. You needed a lot of patience to deal with him, he could be realistic about that.

    It was, in reality, a person who (if they met) would not love Dan at all. A person that Dan could safely be in complete love with from afar, which was the whole point.”

    Or: When he was eleven Dan wished for Phil to help with a family curse that there’s no hope of breaking. Fifteen years later he’s stationed in coastal Wales, working the late shift in a supermarket while secretly protecting a whole village from various supernatural beings. Everything is going fine(ish) until Phil, impossibly, shows up.

    Summary

    Al doesn’t know what he’s doing. Not just with the new apartment, but with his life in general, and it doesn't help that his family quietly looks down on him. It feels as if they’re always waiting for him to do something spectacular, but without actually expecting it of him. They’ve given up on expecting anything of him.

    Al only speaks English, and he sings in the shower, badly. He likes tea, and he cleans when he’s stressed. He sees a therapist. He has a total of two friends, and one of them is his cousin. He isn’t smart; he’s simple.

    He wishes that could be enough.

    Summary

    When Stiles finds a high tech, broken down android in a dumpster, he knows it's too good to be true. There has to be a catch somehow — no one throws away expensive androids, and this particular one is unlike any android Stiles has ever seen. D33R3 looks so real that Stiles could almost mistake him for a human being. He can't help bringing him home.

    Stiles should have listened to his instincts. It soon becomes clear that someone is looking to reclaim their lost propery, and Stiles is nothing but an irritating obstacle standing in their way.
