    Summary

    Shane first heard about Ryan’s magical little bar in the southern California desert years ago. He’d always meant to visit, but the bar is off the beaten path, hidden specifically to make it difficult for people like him to find. So Shane is truly so excited to finally be here, in this enchanting little bar that’s turned so many of his kind away. He's so excited to finally set foot in the spot where Ryan’s fought off one attempt on his life after another, where Ryan’s won the undying loyalty of his handpicked bar staff.

    But Shane is most excited to finally meet Ryan.

    He wants to drink with him.

    He wants to play a game.

    Summary

    Stiles is ten when he saves the Hales from their burning home and Derek from a wolfsbane bullet, and this establishes a pattern that seem to continue indefinitely.

    "Then he's facing a burning home, and he wraps the hood of his sweatshirt around his mouth before he pushes the door open and steps inside. There's Mr. Hale asleep - he hopes asleep - on the couch, next to - Stiles thinks that's his brother but there are so many Hales, who can keep track. He rushes over and starts shaking him, can see the rise and fall of the man's chest so he knows he's alive, but he's not waking up.
    He shoves away his hood so he can shout, "Mr. Hale! You have to get up, there's a fire! Mr. Hale, get up!" Nothing, he's not even twitching, both of them taking in deep even breaths like they're having the most peaceful of rests, and Stiles is going to cry. "Wake up, wake up, wake up!"
    There's a moment, where all Stiles can hear is the blood rushing in his ears and not the roar of the flames or the creak of wood, then with a violent, silent pop it's all back and both of the men are gasping awake, eyes open and jumping to their feet. "

    Summary

    "There’s work to be done and fools to look after.”

    “That’s no way to talk about your ranch hands, Ryan. Mr. Lim in particular would be mighty offended, I think.”

    Ryan squints open one eye and fixes Shane with a glare. “Don’t,” he says, and curses himself as he feels his lips twitch. “Don’t make me laugh. I’m angry with you.”

    “It won’t last,” Shane says, with all the confidence of a man who would know. “It never does.”
