- Original Work (4)
Dan shivers, can't help himself. Dumb, animal fear, and he wants to bare his throat to it. “What are you – ”
“I promised,” Hess whispers. “I promised. But just this, alright? It'll be like it never happened.” He slides a step nearer, the pressure of his fingers hard and greedy. “It won't matter.”
After the apocalypse doesn't quite happen, Daniel Waters is just trying to return to his nice, quiet life. What he gets instead is a new neighbour. Hess is friendly, charming and working with demons. He's also strangely familiar.
There are gaps in Dan's memory, but that doesn't seem to matter. They say the devil always looks after his own, and apparently?
Well, apparently Dan belongs to the devil.
“I remember the taste of your skin,” he says hoarsely, “and the curve of your lips. I remember the way I looked at you in the dying light of the sun. I wanted to tear the galaxy apart with my bare hands and give it to you, if you would only let me keep you. I wanted to live in your heartbeat; in your blood.”
When Hiraeth Terai is sent to kill a whore, he assumes the job will be simple. But Damas Kyrion is not at all the usual type of hetairos, and the secrets he holds could burn planets. As if that wasn't enough of a problem, there's also the way he seems familiar. So familiar, in fact, that all Hiraeth wants to do is keep him.
Whether Damas agrees to it, or not.
It is illogical, he knows. The visceral reaction to the mastery of Jason's words, to the rain-slick pink of his lips, and the razor sharpness of his mind is not rational.
And yet he wants, in a way he never has before meeting this human.
A collection of oneshots from the Icarus, Burning universe. Some smutty, some not. Mostly M/M, with an occasional deviation into M/F. No real prior knowledge is necessary, further warnings at the start of each chapter.

“I could devour you,” Samiel says gently, and Jay can feel the heat of his words sinking into his translator. “Won't you let me, pretty human? I'd make it ever so good for you.” His voice is intimate, filthy, that of a lover; of a predator that has caught its prey.
Wing Commander Jason Lane is doing his best. He's got a political coup to stop; a peace treaty to negotiate; half a planet out to kill him and, oh yes, Samiel.
