We've Written Volumes (in Blood and Scars and Ink)
Stiles is on his back on hard-packed dirt. He's cold and there are leaves stuck to his neck and there's a four inch gash in his side that he thinks he can feel his ribs through. There's so much blood around him he feels like he's floating on a pond and everything is so much dimmer above him than it was a minute ago, which is saying something because he's in the dark center of the forest in the middle of the night. And the worst of it is that he's alone, totally alone with the smell of his own blood drowning him and the soft side of him run through by a tree.

As his eyes slip shut, the last thing he thinks is, "This is going to kill my dad."

Lock All The Doors Behind You
[He has no idea what you're supposed to say when you find one of your...werewolf acquaintances, completely out of their mind, growling like they're about to see what your insides taste like. There's no handbook for this. Stiles is thinking that if he survives he might write one.]

//

Stiles accepts the fact that Scott said he'd only be five minutes. But lunch waits for no man. So Stiles has already made a significant dent in his own, by the time Scott fills the seat in front of him. He looks like he ran the whole way, practically vibrating with thoughts he has to share. Stiles doesn't think it's important enough to stop eating. There's a very short list of things which rank above delicious foodstuffs, and Lydia is quite clearly fine. She's three tables over, oozing superiority and perfection.

"Derek's missing," Scott opens with. Which isn't quite important enough to stop eating. Though Stiles is surprised enough to stop chewing for a second, that's the best the grumpy werewolf is going to get.

"What do you mean missing? Is that actually missing, or just more subtle in his lurking than usual?" Because if Derek just decided to stop jumping out at people, or hovering ominously at the nearest tree line, Stiles is pretty sure no one would ever see him. It's possible he does that on purpose, since Stiles figures he's perfectly capable of stalking people without their knowledge.

Well, Tony, I bet you never thought you'd see me, did you? You don't have much time, so I'll make this quick.

Let's start with the basics, like: you're an asshole. You screwed us both over, and now people are dying for it. I found your backup files, the ones you didn't let anyone know about, and I've installed to the last one before I woke up. That's you. Going by the dates, it was the one registered just before you started the deletion program. You succeeded, by the way. No thanks for that.

Norman Osborn attacked Asgard. They're there right now, and they're losing. So pull yourself out of your pity party and go act like the hero you used to be. There's a suit waiting. No weapons system, but it'll get you to Asgard. Find someone to take care of the baby—Luke gave her to me to watch. Tell him I'm sorry I couldn't do it, but she needs her parents alive more than anything else I can give her.

You wanted me to not make your mistakes? Well, I won't. You're not running anymore.



Welcome back, Mr. Stark.

"If you're hearing this, things are about to get really confusing. It means that they saved you for some reason. Heroes, huh? Can't live with 'em and you can't just up and die.

"Your—our? Man this is weird. Our name is Anthony Stark. Tony. We're a genius and a recovering alcoholic who happens to run around in battle armor. What can I say? It seemed like a good idea at the time. There's also a computer in my head, but that should be limited now, so don't worry about it unless it goes sentient. We're also probably the most hated man in the world right now, and that's pretty much all my fault. Sorry about that.

"I'm not going to tell you how you wound up like this. There's a few billion people who will be glad to fill you in, and you can always look it up online later. Knowing us, you will anyway, no matter what I say. You'll make your own judgment call there and trust me, you'll probably end up hating me too.

"What I want you to know is this:

"What we did—what I did was right. I believe that, and I'll stand by it. Don't apologize for me, because I'm not sorry that I gave it my all. The world still went to Hell, but at least I stood my ground and tried to hold the gates closed for a little while longer. I picked the lesser evil. It doesn't make it not evil, but at least it's lesser. Things happened that I didn't anticipate, and I lost everything because of it, but that's life. I accepted that. But you're not saddled down with my mistakes. I made sure of it.

Unconventional Beauty
By the age of twelve, Rodney McKay had mastered all of the physical sciences. Admittedly, there wasn't much to them yet, as Rodney was so eager to point out when he pleaded with his father to allow him to go to Germany and join Robert Bunsen at Heidelberg in the exciting work of isolating chemical elements or to brave the streets of London while assisting Michael Faraday (Rodney's hero) in his vital experiments on electricity. Jack McKay, the wealthiest and most famous merchant in all of Europe, simply laughed and suggested that Rodney wait till he was older.

Shaped Like a Question Mark, Part 3/3
"I think," says Eduardo, pulling the pillows over his head, "you should be the one to make me breakfast. It's only fair."

Mark doesn't know if he's allowed to after a drunken fumble, but he slides his fingers over Eduardo's bare thigh. Eduardo removes the pillow, tilting up to smile at him, and Mark's chest feels about ten pounds lighter. "I like omelettes," Eduardo suggests. "There's eggs in the fridge and some bacon and green onions too."

"I can't cook," Mark says. The sheets are tangled around them like cross-stitching, and Eduardo's hip keeps on bumping against him as he struggles to get out of bed and check his phone.

Shaped Like a Question Mark, Part 2/3
The shape and weave of Ananke Web is starting to come together under Mark's fingertips. Coding for him has always been a full body experience, sliding across his head, his fingers, his elbows, his stomach, his legs. He feels the effect of a coding jag in all the component parts, and sometimes afterwards when he looks at a piece of code or a section of a program that he's designed, he can summon the sensory memory of it. Can tap his finger against a line on the screen and remember that moment there was when he developed the headache, that moment there was when his wrists started feeling sore, that moment there was when his mother yanked the earphones out and frog-marched him down to dinner. Other people build code out of ideas, but ideas come to Mark like mosquitoes to a screen net. It's not enough. What Mark builds out of, what he gives so that he can be not Mark-genius but Mark-proud, is himself.

Five hundred million friends is what Dustin immediately suggests, but Dustin eats too many pixie powder sticks as it is. For Mark, just one a year will do. "You're making it more complicated than it is," he tells Dustin as they carpool to work, a necessary evil because Dustin cannot ride a bike without looking like a wounded octopus, overlong arms flailing everywhere, and the last time he took public transit, he ended up in Los Angeles. "It's not a maniacal plan," Mark adds. "Quit grasping your chest and heaving like an German soprano. It's not a good look on you."

"How can I stop fearing for the entire world," Dustin gasps, "when I know that Mark Zuckerberg is out there trying to spread his friendship like a virus."

A Sure Thing
Adam has no clue what time it is, probably because there's no clock mixed in with the tasteful decor of the room. A strategic move on their part - when someone's paying by the hour you don't want to be reminding them of their dollars ticking away. He's also got no phone, since the nice woman at the door took it with a line about safeguarding guest and employee privacy. Adam had wondered a little at the safety of the contents of his phone, but there wasn't anything else for it. He rolls over, stretching, trying not to nudge his bedmate in the process. He thinks he's fairly successful but he's only just sat up went the guy touches his shoulder lightly and says, "Hey."

Adam turns enough to see him out of the corner of his eye. He's pale, slow-eyed like he was actually still asleep and not just pretending. Adam appreciates the effort, even if it is just a ruse. He says hey back, because there's no call for being rude.

"Is that it?" The guy smiles, sleepily amused.

Don't Carry It All, Part 3/3
Justin hovered anxiously in the doorway all the next morning, and Jesse ignored him. He wasn't interested in talking. He just wanted to work. Justin, though, wasn't great at being ignored. He kept walking by, giving Jesse anxious looks until Jesse started to feel anxious about it, too.

"What?" Jesse finally demanded, closing his laptop.

Justin, caught lurking just outside Jesse's office, froze. "Uh," he said. "Just. Everyone's kind of wondering if you're okay."

"Who's everyone?" Jesse asked. If the entire firm had somehow learned about Jesse's romantic misadventures he was going to jump out the window.

"Me. Emma. Walsh was wondering, too." Justin looked guilty. "I didn't tell him about the uh… You know. The 'situation.'"

"The air quotes aren't really necessary," said Jesse, rolling his eyes.

"Are you drunk, honey?" Emma asked. She always sounded a little throaty, like she'd been smoking and drinking whiskey. It made Jesse feel bad for sounding a little like Kermit the Frog.

"No," he said. "Well. Let me check. No."

"He had half a beer," said Justin. "No one could possibly be drunk on half a beer. He needs a keg."

Don't Carry It All, Part 1/3
It started because Justin decided to set up a dating profile for Jesse against his will. “Dude,” said Justin, “you have cats. You’re a single twenty-something dude with cats. We have got to get you a date.”

It was a slow day at the firm and Justin tended to get douchey when he was bored and there was no one around to flirt with. He was great at bringing in new clients because he was amazingly charming when he wanted to be, but underneath all that charm was a tremendous layer of jackass. Somehow Justin had decided it was his job to drag Jesse kicking and screaming out of the comfort of staying home in his apartment all the time and into the world of... well... Today it looked like internet dating.

Jesse scowled a little and fidgeted with the sleeve of his jacket. “Only two cats,” he said, because the foster cats who went in and out didn’t count. “What are you doing? Seriously, eHarmony? Don’t do that! What are you doing? That’s a company computer. This is such a bad idea.”

Darkness of a Garden, Part 3/3
It's not Leila who answers the door and for one heart-dropping moment Kris thinks it's Adam, and he's about to launch himself into Adam's arms when his brain finally catches up that it's an older man, solid with greying hair and crap, this must be Adam's dad who works at that Mysterious place that Adam doesn't talk about. He frowns at Kris, then looks down the street and then back again at Kris, eyebrows raised. "Is this Trick or Treat time?" he asks. "Or have they changed it?"

"Uh, n-no," Kris stammers, trying to work up what to say. "I'm-- I'm Adam's friend, Kris."

Adam's dad's expression changes immediately, although Kris still doesn't get if it's a good or bad sign. "Come inside," he says, and that's scary because does that give him powers over Kris like a vampire or something? Kris figures that he was in the house last night though so...plus it would be really bad manners if he refused, so he steps in.

"I'm Eber," Adam's dad calls over his shoulder as he walks away.

Darkness of a Garden, Part 2/3
They don't say anything on the way back home on the train. Adam doesn't even try to talk and Kris is profoundly grateful because he needs-- he needs time. He's intensely aware of the most stupid little things, the way Adam plays with his hair, the length of his long legs stretched out next to Kris's, the way Kris seems to feel so comfortable around Adam, even though he's apparently a wizard of all things. He remembers Adam's voice in church, sweet and rich to his ears. Adam either stares out of the window or down at his hands, and Kris looks at him sideways, takes in the way his eyelashes flutter against his cheek, devoid of make up.

"I'm sorry," Adam says again when they reach Kris's front door but Kris just nods. He gets out Aunt Iris's spare key and lets himself inside because he just can't right now.

Darkness of a Garden, Part 1/3
It's not that Kris minds being on vacation in England for his summer break, especially since he's been brought up not to complain about life. Some people might think it's an ideal vacation. It's only-- well, Kris's idea of vacation isn't being stuck with his maiden Aunt Iris while his friends get to go to Cambodia and actually do some good in the world. In the right kind of world he'd be along helping out as well. He wants it so badly he can taste it on his tongue but he can deal. After all, life deals curve balls and maybe there's some purpose to him being here that he just doesn't know about yet. Besides, Great Aunt Iris is really old and lonely, and him being here is cheering her up some, at least.

Tightly Knit, Part 3/3
Kris’s bedroom is tiny, but he has a nice-sized bed and the small window set high in the wall makes it look cozy and intimate.

"My grandma's old room is bigger, but… uhm… I got used to sleeping in here," Kris says, with half a shrug, obviously embarrassed.

"I live in a dorm room," Adam says. "This is huge in comparison."

Tightly Knit, Part 2/3
Adam is in a terrible mood when he gets back to the dorm and not even the gigantic sub Matt brings him from his part-time job at Subway makes him feel better. It's delicious, of course, but even as he eats he feels unsettled (and he's probably getting fat, too). Something happened at the store, he's just not sure what. Maybe he was pushing too hard, or maybe Kris thinks he told Jenna he was Kris's boyfriend after all. He thought they were making progress but now it feels as if Kris is slipping away.

"I think The Plan works better in a club setting," Adam says morosely.

"Trouble with the knitting guy?" Matt asks.

Adam shrugs. "I don't even know what I did wrong."

Tightly Knit, Part 1/3
Adam knows nothing about knitting, except for the fact that he's pretty sure it requires knitting needles and yarn, so when his mom declares that the only thing she want for her birthday is a scarf he knitted himself, he decides that she's insane. Apparently someone in her parenting class (yes, she attends parenting classes even though Adam is already in his second year of college and Neil is disgustingly well behaved) said the same thing to her son last year and it turned out to be a real turning point for him.

Now, Adam doesn't really believe in the magical powers of knitting needles and he's not exactly sure he needs a turning point in his life, but if his mom wants a horrible hand-knitted scarf, then a horrible hand-knitted scarf is what she's getting. He does some research on the internet and knitting doesn't seem to be too hard; all it requires is aforementioned needles, yarn and time.
