The Drowning Sky
Valjean pulls Javert up out of dark waters.

""No," Valjean says, but Javert knows that he has planted the possibility – Valjean shoving aside the bedclothes and rucking up his nightshirt and the grim slap of flesh on flesh and those hard convict's eyes boring into the back of his neck, Valjean's breath on the back of his neck again, and –

The rush of blood southward catches him almost by surprise. He hopes Valjean does not notice the change in his eyes, the startled swallow. He always hopes too much. To see where he stands Valjean need only glance at the bedclothes.

This, Javert thinks, the thoughts leaden in his stomach. This, this, this is what becomes of you without the prop of your law. This is where your thoughts slink – vile and filthy, back to the gutter, this is the slimy rind that's left of you –"

Ain't No Grave (Can Keep My Body Down)
It's six in the morning, and Steve is heading out on a run when he nearly trips over a bouquet of sunflowers on the front steps of his brownstone.

For a second paranoia takes over, and he kicks the flowers a little, waiting for them to explode. They don't. They also came with a card, which he picks up. The front of the card has a tasteful picture of the Brooklyn bridge at sunset. It's very nice and sedate, like the kind of card you would buy to give to your boss. On the inside someone has written a short message in big, shaky block letters.


Steve sits down hard on the steps

To Know You Anywhere
"I understand now," Thor says. "You're neither man nor woman, not Jotun nor Asgardian, small or large. You are simply yourself, without a boundary or name, except that you are my brother, and you are loved. Loki, I know you when I see you."

i'm the diode, you're the kerosene
In two years, Eugene had run over this exact scene in his mind too many times to count. Sometimes, he’d yell. He’d curse him out, hit him if he was feeling particularly pissed off that day. Try and get it through his thick, mad skull that waking up alone on that train was the final nail in a coffin that Eugene had taken too long to claw out of. Other times, Eugene imagined embracing him, breathing in the familiar smell of sweat and gun oil as he silently forgave him for it all.

a little wicked, just like you said
“Best of three, then,” Silver says, clapping and rubbing his hands together. “When you lose, you–”


“If,” Silver corrects, immediately, but with a tone like he’s indulging the idea of Flint winning rather than actually entertaining it. “If you lose, you’ll have to remove an article of clothing.”

Flint stares at him. Silver smiles back, mouth like a scythe.

“Excuse me?”

If Silver’s got the balls to organise a rum soaked nudist arm-wrestling ring on Flint’s fucking ship, in the middle of the fucking night, in the middle of the fucking ocean, he’d better stand up and take the credit for it - and whatever else may be coming his way.

What things we have heard together
“Looking out for me?”

“Always. S’why I’m here, if you want to know the truth.”

Dick couldn’t look at him, not while he was saying things like that, not even after all that champagne. He coughed. “What, not God and country?”

“No, nothing that poetic. Just this gawky redhead I got mixed up with back at OCS. Had to keep him out of trouble somehow.” He pulled Dick to him. “And you know what they say: you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself.”

Dead Men and Dreamers
He takes out a pack of cigarettes and lets two drops into his hand. “You smoke?”

“Yes, sir. Just during wartime,” says Lipton, smiling a little.

“You’ll be a lifelong smoker, then,” observes Speirs flatly, and offers him one. Without hesitation, Lipton takes it between two rough, surprisingly nimble fingers and waits as Speirs produces a lighter. The flame catches between them and holds, making pools and valleys of shadow on their faces. Speirs takes Lipton by the wrist to hold his cigarette steady for lighting, but it’s strange: Lipton’s hand only shakes more violently.

The Red Wolf
With the Starkiller nearing completion, the LAST thing Hux needs is to be sent by the Supreme Leader to the Core Worlds on some kind of spy mission. That is NOT Hux's area of expertise, thank you very much.

And if attending cocktail parties and playing nice with the New Republic wasn't hard enough, General Leia Organa's son seems to be a demon from the deepest nightmares Hux never knew he had. Honestly. Can't the tall, dark idiot keep his hands to himself for just one minute?

Featuring the Terrifying Prince Ben Amidala Solo, General “I have no chill” Hux, Badass Goddess Rey Kenobi, Poe “Definitely not a Resistance spy” Dameron, and Actual Cinnamon Roll Finn.

Sache que le Soi correspond au voyageur, que le corps est le chariot.
The cards provide Mr Segundus with some insight as to his relationship with Mr Childermass, who, let's be honest here, has probably been asking his cards about Segundus every night for the past decade or so. With a little help from some spiced wine and magical seduction, they finally manage to reveal their affections.

In Truth
“We have done nothing wrong at this time, sir,” Mr Segundus called, as soon as he had set foot outside the doors. Childermass only glanced up at him briefly. “You cannot try and stop us again from opening a school.”

“I can do whatever I want,” Childermass said. It consistently vexed Mr Segundus how insolent Childermass spoke to him, as though Mr Segundus were nothing more than a naughty child. “Seeing as I currently have no master. But I’m not here for that.”

In which Mr Segundus and Childermass come to an agreement.

Surviving the Battle of Five Armies is only the first step. Bilbo may not be able to master the sword, but he is certainly capable of putting Thorin Oakenshield in his place, and his place is the throne of Erebor. (This is a very nice way of saying: Thorin and Bilbo celebrate by having sex on the throne and the mountain says it's good.)

Looks (passed and shared)
Speirs recognizes the looks: most of them sort of wide eyed and staring, deer in the headlights. And there's a kind of pleasure in that - knowing that most men rock back on their heels and dig in a little when he does get to yelling. Lipton doesn't look away.

Ronald Speirs had lips like a boy half his age, a slight pout and a little too much of a curve in the upper to look as masculine as anyone reading his service record might expect. They tasted of coffee and sleep, unbrushed teeth and awkwardness. Carwood Lipton had lips that were made, right now, to be kissing them.
