"I know," says Young. "Rush," and Rush is this close to breaking, he's on the verge of collapsing entirely, "I know."

Holiday Mini Recs
A holiday-appropriate story from SGA and two from Harry Potter.

Here's Looking At You (HP): Some Muggle inventions aren't all that useless for wizards after all – or so Minister Shacklebolt claims. His Muggleborn employees suspect that the real reason behind his sudden enthusiasm for magi-technical innovation at the Ministry is the fact that he found out about internet porn, but that isn't terribly relevant for the following story…

Arctic Drift (SGA): penguin!fic: "Tell me we didn't just adopt an egg." It shouldn't have been possible, but John sounded intrigued and irritated at the same time.

Unavoidably Detained (HP): They're about to be late for an engagement. Very late.
