The Luxury of Time by glycerineclown
Frank/Karen. NC-17. 6.3K.

They’ve never done this, never just hung out before, with no real objective. They’ve only ever had anticipation and trauma—the keys to any good crush, if she remembers high school correctly. And sure, she’d like to have sex with him, but if Frank’s not ready or isn’t interested, she won’t be destroyed. Or, she’d like to believe she won’t be.

They’re two single adults spending a weekend together. That could be a just-friends thing. It could. Maybe they’ll find out that they have nothing to talk about, but she knows that’s not true.

Tesla engineering lead takes break amid Model 3 production issues
Tesla engineering lead takes break amid Model 3 production issues https://ift.tt/2Kk78TE Prospective https://ift.tt/2C8EmVI May 12, 2018 at 07:36PM

Tesla is facing a tough time: it's racing to improve production of the Model 3 not just to catch up on its backlog, but to avoid serious damage to its bottom line. It's slightly unusual, then, that one of the EV maker's key executives is taking a break from it all. The company has confirmed that Senior VP Doug Field, the head of engineering, is "taking some time off to recharge" (yes, Tesla said that) and "spend time with his family." It stressed that Field "has not left" the team. There's no official word on how long Field will be away, but Wall Street Journal sources described the leave as a "six-week sabbatical."

Field has been instrumental to Tesla's engineering and production ever since he jumped over from Apple in 2013, but his break comes soon after Elon Musk started personally overseeing Model 3 production in April. The CEO has acknowledged that Tesla jumped too quickly into automated production, creating bottlenecks that delayed the goal of making 5,000 Model 3s per week from its original late 2017 target to June. The sabbatical wasn't necessarily prompted by Field's abrupt change in responsibility, but it's easy to see this as an opportunity to regroup at a stressful moment.

Just what will happen when Field comes back isn't clear. However, it's safe to say that he'll have a lot on his plate even if Model 3 production improves as promised. Tesla is in the midst of one of its most aggressive expansion to date, with plans to launch its Semi truck, Model Y crossover and new Roadster within the next two years. In that light, it's not surprising that he took a break -- he'll be putting his nose to the grindstone for a long while.

Blood and Bone by Skasis
Frank/Karen. NC-17. 96.9K. AU.

Frank Castle is a boxer at the top of his game. Laconic and anti-social, he has a reputation for being an incredibly-tough interview.

Karen Page is a sports reporter trying to prove herself in a male-dominated field. She's done playing games--trying to be the 'Cool Girl' who caters to the male fantasy--and now she's on a mission to take no shit.

For a while, the fact that an interview with Castle lasting longer than 5 minutes even existed was big news. Splashed all over the message boards—circulated among boxing and Castle fans alike. The very concept that someone actually got the man to sit down for more than a breath of time and give multiple-sentence answers to a question—it was huge. Massive. It was the only thing Castle fans could talk about.

Until three months later, when Frank Castle disappeared.

Then that was the news. It was the only news.
