Fic: BFFs Get Handcuffed Together For 24 Hours - Ryan & Shane [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
“May death do us part,” he said in a stupid, ghoulish voice.

“It’s only 24 hours, you dick,” Ryan said around a strangled laugh.

“Yeah, 24 hours,” Shane said. “Or death. Whichever comes first.”

“You’re saying you wouldn’t uncuff me to save my life?” Ryan asked, wheezing.

Shane turned to look straight into the camera filming.

“Them’s the rules. Shane ain’t never lost a challenge.”

Or, in which Ryan deals with his feelings by not dealing with them at all.

Fic: it started like this [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
Shane thinks that if he can just pin down when it started, maybe he can do something about it. Think himself out of it, somehow. Understand the problem to solve the problem.

(He tries not to think about what, exactly, the problem is.)

Fic: The Shine of Obsidian [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
After months of negotiations, Ryan and Shane are given permission to do a weekend long investigation for Unsolved at The Overlook, a famously haunted hotel which is left abandoned during the fall and winter seasons due to severe weather conditions and its relative isolation.

Once left on their own, what Shane had thought would be a fun weekend turns into a fight for survival when Ryan becomes possessed by the very demon he was hunting.

“I know you’re sitting over there, probably like, ‘oh, Ryan’s such an idiot, he’s afraid of ghosts but not serial killers.’”

“I’m thinking your sense of self-preservation is a sham. You absolutely seek out things that you believe are a danger to your person.”

“And you're so incredibly invested in my person?”

“I am! I enjoy your person. I would like it not to be carved up and put on a Christmas display.”

Ryan laughs, and Shane can’t begin to fathom how that’s even remotely funny.


Ryan wants to investigate a case that's just a little too recent for Shane's tastes.

“You know, there’s something noble about sleeping on the floor,” he says, and holds the package out.

“Noble?” Ryan says. “You know, this is a serious ghost hunt. It’s a serious show, and you’re opening snacks like a six year old.” He takes the box anyway and dips his hand inside. “Are you going to start talking about wood grain now, and the quality of the plywood?”

“Ryan Bergara. You know, about this tall, scared of his own shadow, and loves the Lakers more than life itself. My co-host, that Ryan.”

“You have a co-host? Since when?”

“Since always?” Shane lowered his voice. “Is this for a video? It’s cool, I’ll play along.”

Andrew looked at him like he was growing a second head. “I was going to ask you the same thing. I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

Or: Shane goes to work one day and Ryan’s not there. Ryan’s not anywhere.

“Look,” Shane says over the phone. “Mistakes were made.”

“Mistakes,” Ryan repeats.

“I’ve got myself in a pickle.”

“What have you handcuffed yourself to?” Ryan asks, cutting to the chase and there’s a pointed pause from Shane on the other end. Ryan actually has to check to make sure the call hasn’t dropped.

“That’s not important,” Shane eventually says.

Fic: that first, initial feeling [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved au]
“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. “Listen,” Shane says, and then nothing else, because Ryan The Counter Man pulls an arm behind his head to stretch and the sight of his surprisingly beefy arms short-circuits Shane’s brain.

The man blinks patiently at him. “I’m listening,” he says, encouragingly.

OR: An AU in which Ryan runs a crystals store, and Shane is beguiled by him anyway.

Fic: You Make the World Seem Bigger [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
The creature stirs. She squirm-drags herself down until she’s on Ryan’s belly, and then she noses at the pocket of his hoodie. Ryan gently tucks her in so only her head is visible, and they both watch as she sighs happily and burrows into the warmth.

Ryan looks up at him, beaming. It is, Shane has to admit, very cute.

“Ryan Bergara, Father of Goat-Dragons,” Shane says. “I can’t believe she already likes you best.”

“Yeah, well,” Ryan says. “You tried to name her Snooki and turn her over to the state of California, so you reap what you sow.”

OR: Ryan and Shane film a Supernatural episode in the Pine Barrens on the elusive Jersey Devil. They don’t manage to find it, but a few months after filming, one definitely finds them. And it’s decided they’d make great adoptive parents.

Fic: Another Bad Habit [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved rpf]
“You need to stop looking at me like that,” Ryan tells him bluntly.

“Like what?” Shane asks, as though he doesn’t know. He’s pulling apart his leftover crust like a nervous tick.

“Like you’re still thinking about who has or hasn’t fucked me.”

He’s hoping the bluntness will shame Shane into cutting that shit out, but Shane mostly just goes pink, his throat shifting as he swallows. He doesn’t admit to anything, but he drops his handful of crust.

“Is that what this is?” Ryan pushes. “Are you being uncool about my life, or do you have some kind of weird thing about virgins?”

Next thing he knows, Shane’s kneeling in front of him at the side of the bed, forcing uncomfortable eye contact and smiling uncertainly. His hair’s wet and he smells good from the shower, spicy black pepper and coriander thanks to that fancy body wash he seems to use only when he travels.

“Your pupils are still dilated,” Shane says. “Did you do hard drugs when I wasn’t looking, or is this some kind of lasting bat-related trauma that you’re going to need therapy for when we get back to L.A.?”

“The batter,” Ryan says. “Uh. The latter. I’ll put it on BuzzFeed’s tab.”

Or: Following a harrowing experience filming at Yuma Territorial Prison, Ryan's desperate to find a way to stop thinking about bats (hearing bats, smelling bats...). Shane has some ideas because he is a helpful problem-solving sort of person.

Ryan hadn't expected to spend this much time considering the mysteries of Shane's nipples.

They were, in fact, one of the last things Ryan would have expected to end up fixated on. He's not blind, he can see Shane's appeal. He has at times been jealous of his hair and every now and then momentarily distracted by his hands but mostly only when Shane puts them on him, and that isn’t his fault.

Ryan’s not precious about sex, and they’ve already done it once. It should be the easiest thing in the world for Ryan to be like, “Hey, remember that time I penetrated you with a variety of sex toys? Let’s do that again some time.”

But every time he thinks about saying it something twinges inside him, deep, that stops him in his tracks. He feels—on the hook. Like he has something to lose.

Ryan’s living in his worst nightmare: a PG-rated romantic comedy, the kind that airs on the Hallmark Channel in December. The kind where all the characters learn the true meaning of Christmas but nobody comes.

He should have sold it years and years ago, but he never quite managed to get around to it, and now here he is, in the burning building that is his whole life, with nothing else.

Over the groaning of collapsing wood, he hears Ryan’s voice: “Shane? Shane? Shane!”

He sounds breathless, like he’s been running. Shane kicks down the cracking front door and exits to the street, tucking the medallion into his back pocket. Ryan is standing right in front of the door, as if he had been about to run inside.

“Tell you what, Ryan, you really know how to make an entrance,” he says, brushing ash off the front of his shirt and hoping that he’s managed to keep most of the bitterness out of his voice. “So was ruining my life once just like, not enough for you?”

Because Jesus tapdancing Christ, Ryan looked good. No one had the right to look that good while dressed as a knock off Indiana Jones, but that open-collared white shirt, the pants hugging his hips, the self-satisfied smirk below the hat—fuck off, he thought, staring at the delicate line of Ryan’s collarbone peeking out beneath the crisp white edge of his shirt, and oh fuck, they were filming this and he had been silent for a solid five seconds at least, just staring, and there is a camera watching him and filming his reaction to show to the whole internet.

“When he torpedoes you on Rate My Professor you’re gonna deserve it,” TJ informs him.


Or: Shane is Ryan's beleaguered history TA. Ryan won't stop suggesting insane theories.

Fic: I’ve Kissed You Before, but I Didn’t Do It Right (Can I Try Again) [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
Ryan grabs for Shane’s banana and takes a bite out of it. In his head it was supposed to be sexy, but he realizes as he’s chewing that it might hit a little close to home. Shane must be remembering the same thing, because he blanches and looks away.

“Sorry, too soon?”

“I’m having a Pavlovian response to the flash of your teeth around a phallic object,” Shane says, “and now my balls are trying to crawl back inside my body. Something tells me that’s not what you were going for.”

“No,” Ryan agrees, still chewing.


After months of mooning around each other, forces (read: alcohol, nerves, gravity, tender feelings) conspire to ruin Ryan and Shane’s first night together. With a little help from their friends, dramatic training montages set to 80’s rock anthems, and the early filmography of Harrison Ford, can our heroes get things back on track?

Fic: lay your demons at the door [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
Ryan had been so careful. For months he had learned to train his face into a semblance of normalcy every time a spirit got too close or he was overwhelmed with some indiscernible emotion on location. He had learned to channel his fear into something more manageable, something entertaining enough for the cameras but not so severe that anyone would be able to tell he wasn’t just jumping at shadows or groaning floorboards anymore.

Shane wasn’t supposed to find out. He wasn't supposed to know.

Fic: PLACES/MINDS [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
Ryan has gone through this before.

Sure, usually when he dreams about Shane dying on a shoot, it actually involves the supernatural in some way—aliens beaming down and vaporizing him, hands reaching from the wall and snapping his neck, a giant snake emerging from a drain pipe in a haunted location to swallow him whole. But he's seen this too: Shane falling in front of his eyes, there one minute, gone the next.

Usually he would wake up as twisted in his sheets as his lungs felt in his chest, staring up at the morning light dripping off the stucco ceiling until he was fully back in his skin. He’d ask himself why the fuck this happens in his head, why Shane, over and over again. And then when no answers came, he’d remind himself that he was home in L.A., and that if something was going to kill Shane on location, it would have happened by now.

This time, there’s no blinking back to the safety of his room.

(Or; Ryan and Shane go camping in a canyon after a shoot. Shane falls off a cliff and into Ryan's head)

Fic: La Petite Mort [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
And maybe his drunk self was just being overly poetic, or maybe he is just that good at concealing what he’s feeling, but Shane thinks it’s something else. He thinks that Ryan simply isn’t scared by what he’s reading about, not in the cold sweat, trembling lips kinda way. Just like he isn’t scared of horror movies to begin with. And that means Shane would never have the chance to witness whether or not Ryan’s confession had any validity to it.

That is, until Ryan decides to sleep in a supposedly haunted house and bring Shane along with him.

Ryan, as always, is focused on the task at hand while Shane can't help but to think about Ryan and their "arrangement." But what happens when the legends of New Jersey become reality?

Shane Madej had not slept in four days.

That was a pretty rational sentence, right?

It made sense.

It had a verb, it had a noun - it even had a proper noun, and you had to admire something with a proper noun, right?

Fic: if you can find a way to love me, it's all right [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
When Ryan was a kid, he fell into a pile of bricks. They were playing hide and seek, and he thought he had the best hiding spot: high up in a thickly lush tree, his knees drawn to his chest so that he’d blend in. But the branch broke. He hit his head and doesn’t remember much of what happened after that. When he woke up a few hours later, the sun was setting, and his friends were gone, and his parents were calling for him, their flashlights swinging across the grass. There’d been blood on his bangs.

Anyway, now he can see ghosts.

Kind of.

Look, he’s not great at it.

Fic: a syllable of tenderness and fear [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
The problem is that Shane is from the midwest. They don’t talk about feelings in Schaumburg. They talk about the weather and Chicagoland gang warfare and who in the county has the best backyard hockey pond in the winter. That’s it. That all they’re interested in.

Shane thinks maybe it’s like exposure therapy. You ease your toe in, then your foot, then the rest of you. Surely talking about your feelings with your ... television co-host was the same.

“I’m serious,” Ryan says. “Don’t go fucking up my body. I want that shit back in the same condition I left it.”

“The same condition—Ryan. I’m not spending hours in a gym every day so you don’t lose muscle mass.”

“I want you to treat my body with the respect you would a national park. Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but memories.”


A certain meddling Voodoo Queen of New Orleans thinks Ryan and Shane need some new perspective on life. After an inadvisable ritual deposits Ryan in Shane’s body, and Shane in Ryan’s, the ghoulboys pursue some soul-searching and self-discovery to put things right. Sometimes in a sexy way.

Fic: Out of Control with Ryan [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
“Are we a couple in this game?”

“A couple of scoundrels!” Ryan says. Shane smiles a patient little smile and lets Ryan dig his own grave. “Who needs labels nowadays, isn’t that kind of old-fashioned? Like, what is a couple anyway? I didn’t, I just, they started doing this without my permission. I don’t control Sim Ryan’s life.”

“Ryan,” Shane says, and Ryan stops babbling. “Ryan, you do. You literally control Sim Ryan’s life. That’s the entire point of The Sims.”

Shane’s got him there, Ryan has to admit.

Fic: guidance for sailors, lost at sea [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
“I’m not the mom,” Shane says, drowsily appalled.

Ryan raises his eyebrows. “I didn’t say you were the mom,” he soothes, sincere in the way that Ryan kind of always is, even when he’s being sarcastic. “I just said they reacted to you as if you were the mom.”

“It’s -- that’s the same thing,” Shane protests, but quietly, because he has a tiny ghost perched on his hip and he doesn’t want to wake her. It. Whatever. It’s kind of hard to tell, because they don’t look like people, exactly, more like -- outlines.

Actually, ironically, what they really look like is people covered in sheets, round at the top and kind of vague at the bottom, but Shane has stopped trying to say that because Ryan gets mad about it. He thinks it’s disrespectful.

Shane thinks it’s disrespectful that he was made step-parent to a bridge full of baby ghosts without anybody asking him, but sure. Pointing out that they look like sheets is the problem.

Ryan perches on the edge of the bed, an indistinct shape that Shane can only just make out in the dark, so he turns the lamp back on. He wants to see Ryan’s face, wants to know that he is alright. Ryan’s cheeks are damp, his hands fisted in the hideous flowered duvet.

“It won’t go away,” Ryan says miserably. “I’ve been like this since we got here, basically, and it won’t fucking—”

“Ah,” Shane says. “Well, you know, sometimes fear…adrenaline…they can affect people. Physically.” He waves his hands indistinctly crotchward. “It’s a, a scientifically known phenomenon.” Shane feels a little better staying in the realm of scientifically known phenomena.

“I’ll show you cabin head,” Ryan rebuts without thinking, and then he turns his face into the pillow to stifle a nervous snicker. “Oh shit, wait, that’s—”

Planning a shoot at a remote cabin in Vermont the week before Christmas wasn't Ryan’s best-ever idea. Taking a leisurely walk in a blizzard wasn't Shane’s. Scrap the ep, there’s a new plan: survive the storm, stay warm, try not to kill each other, and figure some shit out along the way.

Fic: didn't know that i was starving (til i tasted you) [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved au]
He was never like this, before. He’d always had the hunger under control, didn’t need to feed often or much at all unless he had gone too long without. Food sustained him just as well, though it never did quite sate that itch, the craving for skin and sweat, breath and heat.

He could go weeks without indulging, though, or even months, and had done so before. It was ridiculous that a mere seven day fast had reduced him to this, panting against Shane’s collarbone as he’s pressed into the door, a groan tearing from his throat as Shane’s bony hips slot between his thighs.

He blames Shane: Shane and his goofy grin and sleepy eyes and messy hair. Shane and his huge hands and ridiculous layers and stupid laugh. Shane and his stubbled jaw and long legs and soft, deep sighs.

Shane and his taste, sweet and thick and rich on Ryan’s tongue, in his lungs, familiar and hot and so fucking good.

And that’s what he’s thinking about — how you don’t see cassette tape film webbed and glimmering over bushes on the side of the road anymore — when Shane leans across the console and kisses him.

Shane kisses him on the mouth and it is surprisingly warm and Ryan can’t even make the noise that catches in his throat. For a moment, between songs, there is silence, just the soft hum of the car, and jesus, that’s Shane’s tongue against his top lip. It’s quiet enough that Ryan can hear the soft, intimate sound of their mouths sliding together as he opens his and, for a second, Shane’s tongue skims the sharp edge of Ryan’s front teeth, and then it slides softly, lightly against Ryan’s own.
