    Summary

    “He has a crush on him,” Joe says around a mouthful of carrots and points his fork at him for emphasis. To someone who once has had Joe’s scimitar rammed through his chest, it’s not exactly a terrifying gesture, but it still feels a tad more aggressive than Nicky thinks the situation warrants.
     

    (In which archaeologists make a discovery, Joe is upset, and Nicky trolls historians.)

    Summary

    “The Elves have very nice hair,” Frodo muses. He doesn’t look at Sam, but he can tell that Sam is looking at him. These days, it’s starting to seem like Sam is always looking at him. Frodo can’t really tell how that makes him feel. 

    “Mr. Frodo?” Sam asks.

    Frodo hums softly, tapping his fingertips against the fabric of his pants. “Do you ever wonder what it might be like to have hair like that?”

    or; after the destruction of the Ring, Frodo discovers that his friends, often, have the answers when his own knowledge fails him.

    Summary

    In which Gawain dies and is, thereafter, given the chance to live.

    “My Lord,” he says, closing his eyes and bowing his head. “My thanks, always, for what you provide for me here.”

    “My Knight.” That voice, Gawain can no longer pretend it does not roil into his gut with a fierceness. “I provide you nothing that is not yours to take.”

    There is a touch upon Gawain’s face, a hand against his skin. He leans into it, and then the Lord is gone.

    Summary

    “I am waiting,” Gawain said, trembling afresh, “for your answer.”

    Bertilak draped the girdle aside casually, looking Gawain square in the eyes.

    “I have given it,” he said steadily. “This pleases me, Gawain.”

    The knight flinched at the sound of his name, though not in fear. His apprehension had begun to fade, drifting like smoke to the high-arched ceiling.

    “Then you were not serious downstairs when—”

    “I am rarely serious,” Bertilak said, and smiled.

    Summary

    Cos knows he’s funny, a flirt, a wise-guy, a quick-step, a romantic. He's always had Don, and he knows he always will. When Kathy drops into their lives (or, he should say, Don drops into her car), he has something new to know- that he'll always have Kathy, too.

    A canon-compliant retelling of Singin' in the Rain- except that Cosmo and Don both fall in love with Kathy, because loving each other is as easy as breathing.
