    Summary

    “You know…several of us parents get together once, maybe twice a month or so. You’re welcome to join us if you’d like. I can add you to the email chain.”

    Not for the first time that day, Eddie’s surprised. It’s not that he’s opposed, more that the invitation is unexpected. He’s not particularly social—when he is it’s with the team or with Buck or with his family, all of them in each other’s houses, in each other’s lives both at work and away from it. Outside of them…

    It occurs to him that he’s never really known how to make friends.

    [Or: Eddie makes friends outside of work and realizes that Buck might not, in fact, be just a friend]

    Summary

    “Chris, no one on Tik Tok wants to watch me play the cello,” he says—again—tiredly, rubbing a hand over his face. A pile-up near Dodger Stadium kept him over his shift for five hours thanks to some dumbass onlooker flicking a lit cigarette at a gas station, and big surprise, that didn’t end well for anything except Eddie’s bank account.

    “Dad,” Chris says, dragging out the word to Eddie’s chagrin. “People do a lot on Tik Tok. There’s cooking, too, you should really watch those. They can teach you a lot.”

    Summary

    Raised in the palace of the Asgardian Allfather since infancy as the result of a fragile peace treaty between Asgard and his home-world of Jotunheim, Loki Laufeyson has always longed for a taste of freedom, of adventure. When the Queen of Alfheim sends word throughout the Nine Realms that she will be holding a series of feasts and dances to choose the best suitor for her daughter, Loki hopes that his chance has finally come to see something of the other realms... until Odin Allfather informs him that he is forbidden from accompanying the royal family to Alfheim.

    Fortunately, Loki has a few tricks up his sleeve - tricks that he's never dared to use, until now.

    Summary

    Iceland is nice - sure, you probably should’ve picked a time of year when the weather was a little warmer, but it isn’t too bad, and at least you’re away from your desk job, right? It’s a pretty big adventure.

    You’ve always said that you wanted more adventure in your life.

    Summary

    Rey's been going to the farmer's market since she was a little girl. She loves the apples, the dogs, and of course, the flowers.

    And, sunflowers are finally in season, which means she can stop by the Yavin Farm stall to buy a bunch of her favorite flowers - interestingly enough, Kes Dameron isn't there that particular Saturday.
