    Summary

    Wilson has nightmares. House gets a headache. Everyone tries to diagnose just what's going on between them.

    This story is set in Season 2, before House got shot, before the first ducklings left us, before Amber, before House/Cuddy . . . those halcyon days where House and Wilson were just . . . House and Wilson. Wilson is sleeping on House's sofa, after moving out from cancer patient, Grace.

    "Wilson just shook his head and limped back into the kitchen. He unloaded a sack of fresh produce. Good produce. Endives and garlic and tomatoes and asparagus. He moved on to the next sack. Beef. Good beef. Brisket and rump roast and ribeyes . . . he was halfway through the third sack of spices and imported cheeses, whistling and daydreaming about braised salmon with fresh asparagus when it hit him. He was being seduced. Through groceries. By groceries. By House through groceries. And he was falling for it. Hard. Lox, stock pot, and basil."

    Summary

    Lan Wangji is a police detective who's rapidly falling in love with his antifa activist neighbor, Wei Ying — until Wei Ying disappears, and Lan Wangji and his hotheaded partner, Nie Mingjue, are assigned the Missing Persons case. Now Lan Wangji is in a race against time to find a man who seems to have disappeared without a trace, while trying to keep his feelings a secret from everyone around him (and maybe, if he has time, convince his brother to break up with his creepy boyfriend and date Wangji's partner instead).

    Wei Ying is mixed up in something dangerous. Lan Wangji is going to find him.

    (In which Wei Ying says ACAB and Lan Wangji is increasingly inclined to agree)

    Summary

    Derek answers his phone on the second ring.  “What.” No inflection whatsoever.  

    “Does the ‘S’ in your middle name stand for Sexy?”

    Silence.  Then, “Stiles.”  Still no inflection.  

    “I doubt it stands for Stiles, dude.  There can only be one,” he answers in a kick-ass impersonation of The Kurgan.  “But tell me it isn’t, like, Sawyer or Skylar or something equally new-age and white-boy contemporary.”

    “How did you get my number?”

    OR: 5 times Stiles guesses Derek's middle name +1 time he knows.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "I have been jealous all week, because despite being real and alive and here, you cannot see me. How am I still overshadowed by him, even when he's dead?"

    Summary

    "Betrothed," Wei Ying says indignantly.

    Lan Wangji can't stop his gaze from darting up to him. Wei Ying understands. Wei Ying is looking at him, wide-eyed and upset on his behalf.

    "And you don't even like her," Wei Ying says.

    "I don't even know her," Lan Wangji says quietly.

    "But even if you did—" Wei Ying starts.

    "I wouldn't want this," Lan Wangji finishes.
