    Summary

    Eskel didn’t know when he became a soup kitchen for inept incubi.

    Melitele save him from half-starved cubi who were “new in town” and draped themselves over his front steps like a Dickensian orphan curling up on a stoop to shelter from the rain. Usually he’d be able to take them in, give them a bite and set them up on Tinder or something with a stern order to forget his address.

    So why was this the fourth fucking time that he came home to find Jaskier sitting at his door?

    Summary

    Tony Stark is convinced by his family friend Obadiah Stane to adopt a kid in order to improve the tarnished image of Stark Industries. The media always loves a soft, single dad, so it's perfect to get the PR they need. Pepper is enraged. Rhodey is disappointed. Happy is confused. All of this, Tony expected.

    What he doesn't expect is to bring home a kind-hearted, intelligent, four-year-old kid named Peter who slowly gets him to come out of his egocentric shell.

    Summary

    Another fifteen minutes ticked by before the cafe’s door opened again. Elros and Tauriel chatted softly at the other end of the bar. Every note of the saxophone melody from the jazz playing over the speakers pounded against Thranduil’s skull. The customer in front of the counter cleared his throat.

    “Can I get a...java chip frappe with half ice and extra whipped cream?”

    “Does anyone feel like making a frappe?” Thranduil’s voice, though low, cut through to Tauriel and Elros.

    Looking up from something they were doing on Tauriel’s phone, both shook their heads.

    “Sorry,” said Thranduil, still inspecting the water trickling over his fingers. “No one wants to make it.”
