    Summary

    “Is there anything I can do to help?” Bow asks. Glimmer looks up at him. She appreciates him asking, but…

    “Do you wanna come home with me and stand in between me and my mom every time we’re in a room together?” she says. Bow gives her a look as he sits down beside her on the couch. “Sorry,” Glimmer says, sighing. “No, there isn’t really anything you can do.”

    “I would go home with you if I could,” Bow says. Glimmer half-laughs, pauses, and reassesses the situation.

    “Is there…a reason that you can’t?”

    (Glimmer has been avoiding seeing her parents for three years. When she finally has to go home, she takes Bow with her. They pretend to be dating, because clearly that's the best possible way to justify his presence and this decision will have no unforeseen consequences at all.)

    Summary

    A pining/getting together fic series for Catradora set in Modern Etheria. Fics are in recommended read order, not chronological.

    Chronological order (might not make sense to read this way):
    everything is perfect
    before (you loved me)
    on the other side
    let them talk
    talk (dirty) to me

    I may return to this series and add more fics in this verse at a later date, so I encourage people to stay subscribed, but the story is now complete.

    Summary

    He leaves the drive-thru and enters the main parking lot. He’s about to leave and drive back home when he spots another car parked in the lot. The lights of the car are off, except for a light inside the car, and Sokka catches a quick glimpse of a guy in a red sweater, drinking a milkshake.

    Sokka really does not want to be alone with his thoughts right now, so he decides, on a whim, that he’s gonna try and talk to this guy who also apparently had a breakdown tonight.

    “Hi, I’m Sokka,” he introduces. “So, I had a breakdown earlier tonight, and I’ve been informed by the all too caring drive-thru staff that I’m not the only one who’s come through after a breakdown, and I’m guessing that other person is you. So, I was wondering if you wanted to come sit on the curb with me and talk about our problems while we have our sweets.”

    Or, Sokka and Zuko keep meeting in a McDonald's parking lot and bond through their mutual breakdowns. Turns out, it's easy to spill your heart to a stranger in the middle of the night and create a bond that lasts even in the daylight.

    Summary

    When he gets back, two bowls of stew and a jug of wine balanced precariously in his hands courtesy of a grateful mother, Geralt is exactly where he left him. He’s fast asleep, chest slowly rising and falling beneath the blanket still draped over him.

    Roach glances over and nickers at him softly. “You and me, girl, we’ve got a hell of a job on our hands,” Jaskier whispers to her. “Don’t you worry, though. I’ll stick around for a bit. Help you out.”

    Roach flicks an ear at him, and then goes back to her hay. Jaskier heaves a sigh. “Sometimes I feel so unappreciated.”

    Summary

    Jaskier is a twentysomething recently unemployed journalist and amateur musician looking for his big break. So when he’s saved from the jaws of a wyvern by the infamous Butcher of Blaviken, Geralt of Rivia, he comes up with a brilliant idea: he’ll follow the Witcher around and sing about their exploits. He’ll gain fame and fortune and Geralt will get a much needed image rehab. Everyone wins.
    Unless Jaskier goes and falls in love like an idiot.
