holy sick divine
Sitting in the middle of the field, lit by the glow of Patrick’s headlights back over where he parked the car, is a massive pile of standard issue file boxes. A couple of them have tipped over, and a sudden breeze flings a few papers into the air – Patrick, borne on muscle memory from decades of playing the outfield, grabs them before they can fly away. He frowns down at them – it’s too dark to really make out what’s written on them, but— “Much appreciated, kind stranger!” comes a voice off to his left, and Patrick whips around to come face to face with what can only be described as a glamorous older couple who’ve wandered off the set of The Great Gatsby. Patrick, in a dressing gown with his checkered pajama bottoms tucked into a pair of gumboots, is suddenly very glad he’s not having this conversation in the unforgiving light of day.

i would give all this (and heaven too)
It sounds ridiculous to think when they’re literally on a spaceship, but David dresses like he’s from the future. It’s the first thing Patrick notices.

i'm alright with a slow burn
He doesn’t see Patrick again until the bakers are guided into the tent and Patrick is among them. He watches as he puts his apron over his head, his name splayed across the chest, and, feeling a little like he’s going to be sick, realizes Patrick isn’t a cameraman. His hopes that he could limit interaction with him are promptly slashed as Patrick’s eyes take in the tent and land on him, a smirk playing at his lips. David becomes very interested in the hem of his sweater. He clings to the solace that Patrick won’t be half as confident on camera even if he has to run over his rule again. Don’t sleep with the contestants, especially straight ones who wear mid-range denim and have cute button noses.

that first, initial feeling
“You’re called the Treasure Chest,” Shane says blankly to the man behind the counter, who is looking at him with a completely neutral expression. His name tag suggests that he is called Ryan. “It’s -- literally every sex shop in the history of sex shops was called The Treasure Chest. I’m pretty sure it’s in the by-laws.” “The by-laws ... for sex shops?” Ryan asks. Shane fixes him with a look. He sells crystals, which means he’s a con man, which means he’s a deviant of at least some kind, which means he’s been to a sex shop and he knows exactly what Shane means.

the shoreside job
“Parker, what is this?” Harrison asks poking at it with the remote, like he’s afraid to touch it and she’s struck by the realization she wouldn’t mind if he did. She doesn’t know what to do with that so she ignores it. “It’s my sealskin,” she says.

The books. Dorian is thinking of the books, of course, and what all those greasy fingers will do to the pages. It has nothing at all to do with forgetting his lunch, or being stood up for last night’s blind date (and why did he let Felix talk him into that in the first place?), or this morning’s patronizing voicemail from his father that reminded him he wouldn’t have to eat Ramen if he would just sell his soul to his parents’ idea of who he should be. None of that has any bearing on anything. He’s simply thinking of the potential damage to the college’s property, that’s all.

It's not like Nate really gets downtime, but he manages to find a moment when only Mike and himself are in earshot--Mike is balls deep in paperwork--and says, “Mike, I bonded.” “Shit, all right,” Mike says. “We can probably trade the kids for whoever it is, we got enough wiggle room. Who is it?” Nate looks out over the dusty horizon. He speaks clearly and carefully when he says, “Colbert.”

A Local History
It was a long way from his apartment in the Starland District, but the activity felt good and he stopped off as he went to do a few walk-bys on properties to show to Shane. He didn’t really make a habit out of working much on the weekends, but something about finding a house haunted enough that Shane Madej wouldn’t want it was a lot more like a passion project than work.

Best Kept Secrets
"You’re an exceptionally talented lawyer, Enjolras, but there are more things to life than just work, you know.” “I know,” he replies, and the stab of guilt is so strong that he decides to tell her the truth and admit that he isn’t seeing someone, gets as far as saying, “Look, Cos—” when she interrupts him to say: “I’m so happy for you.” And that’s the moment he realises he's screwed.

Malfoy just frowns back down at the body, studying it as if committing it to memory. "A Muggle didn't cause this butchery. Nor any of the non-magical creatures of London. Wizard?" "There's no magical signature detected," Harry says. "As of yet." Malfoy taps his fingers against his thighs. His frown deepens, and Harry's annoyance flares up again. "An enormous dog, perhaps," Harry begins to say, but at Malfoy's incredulous look he stops. "Those do resemble flesh wounds made by canines." "Not a Grim, though. They tend to paralyse their victims. More perimortem rigour, less blood." Harry meets Malfoy's thoughtful, grey gaze. He scowls, but admits the point. "Agreed." He doesn't think it's a dog either. Not a normal one, nor a supernatural one.

Where The Fields Are Painted Gold
“You just wanted to observe that it's August and ask me to wine country.” Enjolras is at sea, and he doesn't like it. “You aren't pressuring me, I was just confused, since I'd never known you went on vacation before.”

(We Were) Reaching In The Dark
Listening turns out to be hard. He and Grantaire are the youngest in the group, and Enjolras barely feels like he has a right to his grief, listening to the stories of the others—the frail old woman who lost her husband to a long illness after forty years, the man who knew his soulmate had died before the hospital called to tell him about her accident, the woman whose words are still stark and black on her arm but whose wife is in a coma in the hospital and won’t ever wake. They all speak up bravely. They talk about being invited to weddings and gritting their teeth, about a child who’s afraid of meeting his soulmate because he’s afraid of losing them, about the pity of anyone who sees the scars and how it grates.

Like Puzzle Pieces From the Clay
Honestly, it had taken a while for Courfeyrac to work through his feelings for Feuilly, because he’d kind of been working under the assumption that everyone felt that way about him? Like, how could you not ? How could you not catch those dry asides and that wry curve of his lips (different and distinct from the corner-of-mouth flit), how could you glimpse those deep recesses of warmth and love and caring for the world and not get a little weak in the knees when he looked at you sometimes? What kind of ingrate wouldn’t respond by falling in love with Feuilly? Why have a crush on movie stars when Feuilly was right here with his soft brown eyes and his soft deep voice and his soft rough strong hands? Just what was people’s problem ? How were they missing this ?

call me, maybe
“Hi,” Boba Fett says again, after a pause. His voice is muffled by the helmet, but he sounds kind of familiar. Maybe they have a class together, Enjolras thinks. “So. Who exactly are you supposed to be?”

Any More Obvious
This is Hell. Éponine is in Hell, except also she doesn’t believe in God anymore because no God would be this cruel to even a sort of mediocre person like Éponine, who shoplifts sometimes and swears like a sailor and has smoked since she was 15. A shopping date with Cosette Fauchelevent . What’s worse, it actually almost feels like a date -date, because no way was Éponine going to admit to the Queen of Barbie Planet herself that 99% of Éponine’s clothes come from Goodwill, and so instead they are wandering the mall together, walking so close their arms keep brushing, and sipping on double caramel frap-whatevers that Cosette insisted on buying for both of them with a weirdly determined glint in her eye.

scorn of the outer dark
One day, it occurs to John that he might as well come out and ask: "Hey, Finch," he says, lying in bed after Finch is done with him, "what are you?" He expects a glare, or maybe an incomprehensible answer. Finch pauses and says, "Hm. Complicated. I am... a possession, perhaps, is the best way to put it."
