    Summary

    Joey Wheeler wasn't known for thoughtful planning. He was more of a "roll the dice and see how they land" type of guy. That duel with Kaiba had certainly been a gamble with high stakes. If only he'd known how Intimately those stakes would affect his pride, and more than that, his sex-life, well, he still would have rolled.

    He just would have rolled over.

    Summary

    Peter Pan simply wanted to go about his day, torturing Captain Hook in fresh and excitingly painful ways. A typical time in Neverland. He did not need these new and completely atypical feelings mucking up his play-time with the pirate. Even if they are novel in a very thrilling way, and in a land of nevers novelty is important.

    Summary

    It’s been two months since the storm, and Childe hasn’t seen Zhongli not even once, not since that fateful meeting with the Signora where the truth is finally unveiled.

    And what a fun little kick to the gut that is, the realization that not only had he been played by all sides, but he's also being tossed aside like trash now that his use had run its course.

    It’s not that Childe doesn’t get it. He’s a Harbinger. He knows first-hand what it means to do his duty, to put the mission first and his personal feelings far, far away, preferably locked up in a box, where it wouldn’t interfere with his job. He knows what it’s like working with vipers, to scheme and plot and lie in wait for the opportune moment to stab his opponent in the back.

    But this time, this time Childe can’t help but feel a little (a lot) gutted.

    Stupid. He’s gotten himself stupidly attached.

    --
    A story about Childe trying to move on after the events of 1.1 Update, but some of his actions have consequences, and those consequences have followed him back to Snezhnaya.

    Summary

    There was a familiar sense of camaraderie whenever he had dinner here. Every sound, every clink of metal against glass or the muffled sound of his throat swallowing the food. Even the nice, crisp fried food getting bitten and chewed.

    “Is something wrong?”

    He blinks, eyes immediately focusing on his current company, “No--” he flinches as his hand falters and the chopsticks landed with a soft clack against the table.

    The traveler makes an odd face - something akin to concern. “Are you sick?” the young boy asks, genuine worry creasing his eyebrows.

    “I’m f-fine...” he lies, feeling his cheeks flushed.

    Summary

    "What I'd really like to know," Fowler says slowly, disapproving gaze fixed on Connor while Hank wheezes and tries to smother his laughter, "is why Detective Reed has submitted a formal complaint against you saying you threatened him."

    "No threats were made, Captain," Connor says evenly, calm despite the scowl Reed is levelling at him from the other side of the office. "I know better than to antagonise someone so deeply mired in anti-android stigma."

    "Then please explain to me why I'm dealing with, and I quote, "that fake plastic detective aggressively T-Posing at me in the bathroom"."

    Hank loses his battle against professionalism, laughing so hard he nearly falls out of his chair.

    "I was asserting my dominance," Connor says simply.

     

    Connor is adjusting. Hank helps, in his own way.
