    Summary

    A collection of one-shots - some set during the book, some set after - each based around a lyrical selection from a song off Taylor Swift's "Lover" album, because it seems we all have collectively decided that that album belongs to Henry and Alex.

    ---

    Most Recent Chapter - "You Need To Calm Down"
    In which Alex reassesses his dependence on Google alerts.
     
    Once Alex has officially joined Henry in New York, they end up - without any real discussion having occurred on the whole situation between the two of them - pulling what Bea lovingly calls their own ‘Taylor Swift moment’.

    That is, they sort of completely fall off the face of the Earth.

    Summary

    Alex Claremont-Diaz has it all. His mom won the election, he’s got the perfect boyfriend. He gets to love Henry out loud. Everything is great. Perfect.

    Except for the itch under his skin every time he goes outside, and the tightness in his chest when he goes online, and the fact that he can’t fucking sleep.

    But he’s fine. It's fine. Really.

    —-
    Or: after the emails, Alex Claremont-Diaz isn’t fine.

    Summary

    Alex angrily storms Kensington to tell Henry he loves him after having been ghosted since the Lake House, but that's not the only thing he needs to tell him while he's there. Henry breaks the news that he is set to be married as he tells Alex it's over between them. Alex leaves without telling Henry the most important news of his life.
    Meanwhile, Alex lays low during the final stages of his mothers campaign in hopes of not ruining her chances of winning with his big news, that's sure to turn some heads once it goes public.
    Henry's situation goes from bad to worse when he learns the truth about Alex. His soon to be wife isn't as understanding as he thought she was, which leads to quite the drama.

    Summary

    Alex and Henry are low-level thugs from rival gangs in a Victorian-adjacent era AU.

    They're still in love, there's just more pickpocketing, a very Henry-centric competency kink and absolute decimation of period-typical racism (we'd expect nothing less from Alex Claremont-Diaz).

    --------------

    “And besides,” he said as he stepped up even closer, bypassing Fox’s lips and whispering teasingly in his ear - even though they were in broad fucking daylight and likely to be killed just for the audacity, because that was what this boy brought out of him - “I suppose I could find it in myself to give you a few extra minutes, especially since it’ll take all the skill you can dredge up to beat...twenty-one pockets...”

    And with that he drew back, watching the way that flush spread as far as Fox’s ears and his pupils blew out, breath caught in his chest at the sight. Then, against all odds, Fox was smirking again, looking right in his fucking element as he stepped the smallest bit backwards.

    “Watch me,” was all he said.

    And oh, Alex would.

    Summary

    "No, it's— okay so, you know how we're together?"

    Henry pointedly grips a little tighter at Alex's hips. "It had come to my attention, yes."

    "Right. Well, apparently it hadn't come to anyone else's attention," Alex says, slowly and pointedly.
     
    Ah.

    "They're betting on when we'll get together," Henry says with a deep, weary sigh. Alex nods, worrying his lower lip with his teeth.

    Summary

    Henry rounds the corner to the saloon’s backyard and stops in his tracks. His mouth goes as dry as the red sand surrounding him, as he watches a strikingly beautiful young man set his cowboy hat aside and shuck out of his shirt. Instead of looking away, Henry is hypnotized by a drop of sweat rolling down a toned chest and disappearing into the waistband, right with a trail of soft dark hair. He swallows hard and looks up just in time to see the young man empty a bucket of water over his head, turning the riot of dark chocolate coloured curls even darker.

    Henry might have groaned, it’s a blur. The other man's head shoots up and curious brown eyes meet his. A knowing smirk plays on the man's plump lips and to Henry’s absolute devastation, he winks at him. How can one human being be so utterly attractive? It’s really quite unfair.

    Summary

    "Be a good person. But don’t waste time proving it."

    Summary

    “Christ, how is this so good? It’s like magic and science and...and I don’t even know what else.” Henry moans as he swallows another bite. “How the fuck does he do this? And how does he do it in a truck the size of our walk-in freezer?” 

    Pez leans back against the wall. “Are you eating that or getting turned on by it, Henners?” 

    Henry rolls his eyes, even as he tries to glare at his head sommelier. “Can’t I do both?” The sauce drips down his wrist and he shamelessly licks it off.

    Summary

    In the nearly six years that they have been together, Alex has made him feel a multitude of emotions he thought he was never allowed to. Henry always thought that if someone like Alex were to fall in love with someone like him, it would set him on fire, but he couldn’t afford anyone to see him burn, for Alex to see him burn. But he did and he still loved him anyway. Henry has tried over and over again to write sonnets that could rival Shakespeare’s work, but they all just don’t seem to show how much he adores Alex. No word in any existing language could summarize the sizable love he feels thrumming through him for Alex.

    Summary

    Alex downloads TikTok on a Saturday and by Monday he's completely obsessed. Henry is clearly a little bewildered by this, but he doesn't seem to mind when Alex starts singing sea shanties and trying - with limited success - to harmonise with himself in the shower.

    Summary

    Alex and Henry have gotten pretty good at this "domestic" thing. They live together, splitting their time between a beautiful apartment in Washington, D.C, and a cozy cottage in London. All is going well until Alex, hungover, makes a 'life-altering' decision - that upcoming Christmas, he and Henry will host Christmas Dinner for their families. The problem? Alex doesn't know how to cook a turkey (lest we forget the Thanksgiving Turkey Show-Down), and Henry's idea of dessert is buying a scarily obscene amount of Cornettos from the nearest convenience store. And of course, there is the biggest problem of all -- where are they going to host it?
