    Summary

    Lily sticks her tongue out at him like a five year old because she really can’t be bothered to keep up the argument. She’s just glad she wore her good tennis shoes before they started hiking through Sweetser Forest. “How far is it, really?” she asks.
    Ben shrugs. “Couple miles. It’s really not that bad of a walk, and we’re getting an early start.”
    “Too early.”
    “Yeah, well, maybe if you went to bed earlier-”

    or, the one in which Lily and Ben also go on an adventure (through the woods with no cell service in January).

    Summary

    “Democracy is a sham,” Ben says stubbornly, “and you all are horrible.”
    “Love you, too,” Emily replies, grinning. He bumps her hip with the cart, and she laughs as they turn out of the aisle.
    Ben sighs and pulls a crumpled piece of notebook paper from his pocket. “I think we’ve almost got everything,” he says. “Just need some icing and we’re good to go.”

    or, it's the holiday season. The gang is making cookies.

    Summary

    Jack says, “You think they’re getting close to announcing a winner, Ben?”
    “Oh, fuck,” Ben says, a second too late. “Guys, go to commercial.”
    “Is that a no? We just had a break,” Sammy says slowly, and then Jack notices where Ben’s vaguely jerking his head to his right, Jack’s left. Jack looks over and there’s a man standing at the booth next to him.

    or, Greg Frickard gets punched in the jaw. Finally.

    Summary

    Sammy wakes, disoriented in a dim hospital room, unsure what woke him, his heart is pounding in his chest. A moment passes as his eyes get used to the not-quite darkness of the room. He looks over at Ben in his bed, thinking that someone must have spoken in the hall and woken him or some other hospital sound, but the moment his eyes land on Ben’s sleeping form, Sammy realizes he’s wrong. Ben woke him.

    Summary

    Ghosts are the ones that Sammy sees when Ben taps out messages in morse code on the dashboard without even realizing what he’s doing, the ones that grin with sharp teeth when Ben excitedly describes the paranormal of King Falls.
    So, maybe Sammy believes in ghosts. Maybe he believes in this town. Whatever. he believed in Jack Wright, and now he’s gone.

    or, four character studies.

    Summary

    “Uh, hi, King Falls!” Ben says, only a little awkwardly.
    “You talking to the tape recorder, Benny?” Lily asks, and scoffs. “Just so you know, they can’t hear you.”
    “Well, not yet they can’t,” Ben agrees, “but if this all goes well, we’ll be able to go back to the station, right? And it’s only fair that King Falls gets to hear how this all goes.”

    or, the one in which the world is ending and Emily Potter is trying to figure out how to fix it.

    Summary

    Sammy got good at keeping quiet in college, when having a roommate who rarely went out made it hard to find time to himself. He trained himself to be quiet, to bite his lips or muffle himself under pillows and blankets, to keep his rasping breaths as light as possible.

    But, then as now, Sammy can only go so long without letting loose. He needs time to himself where he can let go without worrying about someone overhearing him.

    Thankfully, he gets his chance barely a week after this thing with Ben starts.

    [A companion to "slow down (take a moment to breathe)". This is what Sammy was doing while Ben was out of the house.]

    Summary

    The next thing he’s aware of is water against his face, wait no, all of him, where he lays on his left side. Water that is rapidly rising. He lays there dazed. Then a groan above his head has him jerking back into the moment, fear lancing through him, stealing his breath. Ben.

    Summary

    “Jack, you could come too,” he says. “I’m sure everyone would be glad to hear that you’re doing well.”
    “What, everyone?” Jack says lightly. “It’s not like I ever made it to King Falls, Ben. I doubt many people are looking forward to hearing from me, not including the few that do live in this apartment.”
    “Wait, Jack,” Ben says, “do you… do you not know?”
    “I’ve been getting that question a lot, lately,” Jack says dryly. “I’m not sure what you’re referring to this time.”

    Summary

    There's a package waiting outside his door, Ben's name written in Sammy's handwriting. Sammy freezes at the sight of it, and Ben feels his stomach drop.

    Summary

    Where are we going, then, Stevens?”

    “California.”

    She looks at Sammy like he’s crazy. “It’s a seven hour drive, are you nuts?”

    “Maybe. There’s stuff we need to do.” He doesn’t take his eyes off the road but his voice has started to shake a little.

    Lily’s quiet for a moment, and then whispers, “Are we going to see Jack?”

    Sammy nods.

    Summary

    Basically this is a short one-shot imagining how six-year old Ben would react if he met Emily for the first time in first-grade. I also included Troy because I absolutely headcanon that he and Ben have been friends since elementary school, if that is not canonically true already.
