    Summary

    Hugo’s eyes widened as he took in the casual outfit Rhys was wearing, so different from his work clothing that Hugo wouldn’t have even recognized him if he hadn’t tilted his head at the right angle. Hugo swallowed, his hands going clammy as he watched the man talk to the barista, a pleasant smile on his face. He remembered Rhys worked at Hyperion, but at the other branch, twenty miles away from here. What were the chances he’d be at Hugo’s favorite coffee shop on a Saturday?

    The universe was trying to tell him something, he was sure of it.

    Summary

    The Outsider explores the murky seas of human courtship while Corvo watches in bemusement, and in the background Emily draws, Callista takes charge, Piero sulks, and Cecelia accidentally becomes indispensable. There's also a plague, a vase of asparagus, and about a hundred singing whales who randomly showed up in the harbour one evening.

    The squid is still wriggling.

    Summary

    Ask anyone and they can tell you the story: that the words inked on your skin are the first words that your soulmate will say to you. That if you are in the right place at the right time, if you’re lucky, you’ll find the person made to complement you in every way.

    It’s easy to see why people want to believe it. The notion of a perfect partner is seductive, and some people spend their entire lives searching.

    Most people don’t beat the odds - and with humanity spread from the central planets to the farthest-flung outpost, the odds are pretty astronomical. A reasonable amount of basic compatibility and a visit to a decent tattooist are enough to satisfy tradition, for most people.

    The Hyperion president loudly, publicly, does not believe in that bullshit. The Atlas president keeps his counsel to himself.

    Summary

    Crowley is in denial, but sooner or later he has to face the reality of what he’s doing. He’s nesting. It’s understandably difficult...

    A little nesting fic, because it turns out that that nonsense is extremely my kink. The premise of this one is that the nester selects items representing the five senses to offer the nestee. Then there’s fucking. So, to summarise, it’s cute soft furnishings, more soft furnishings, frantic panic and pining, then porn.

    This is split into two chapters, the first of which is entirely suitable for general audiences and the second of which is really not.

    Summary

    Ethan accepts Heisenberg's offer and learns how to negotiate.

    (P.S: Technically PWP but there is a tiny bit of P in the beginning, just to set things up. Lighting some candles, putting on some music, pouring some wine. You know how it is)

    (P.P.S: There aren't any actual candles, wine, or music in this fic. I'm sorry.)
