    Summary

    The sun is just beginning to set below the horizon when Michael hears a car pull into Sanders’ lot. He’s not expecting another customer this late in the day, so he edges himself out from under the sedan he’s working on to see who it is. 

    A smile tugs at his lips the moment he recognizes the SUV parked a few yards away. He reaches for the rag hanging out of his pocket to wipe the grease from his fingers as Alex exits the car and starts making his way over to him. There’s something dangling from his hand, but Michael is too distracted by the way Alex’s sweater is clinging to his chest beneath his open leather jacket to clock what it is just yet.

    3x08 Coda - The day after their kiss at the Wild Pony, Alex pays Michael a visit at work.

    Summary

    During the day, Michael sees the present through one eye and the past through the other.

    But when he closes his eyes, it’s all past, past, past.

    And all too often, it takes the shape of one man.

    Alex.

    After Alex nurses Michael back to health from a gunfight gone awry, a betrayal sends them worlds apart. Now that Michael has taken up bounty hunting across the solar system with Max and Isobel, it sets him on a crash course with someone he never thought he’d see again. Nostalgia really is a bitch.

    Summary

    “Something wet hit Alex’s face then, but it wasn’t cold, not like the desert rain that always felt like it should be warm, but wasn’t. Reaching up, he touched Michael’s cheek, surprised at the drops he found there, at the fact that they came from his eyes.”

    It takes a harrowing rescue mission and a very close call for Alex and Michael to get their shit together, but then, what else is new.

    Summary

    Michael didn’t speak, instead running his eyes over Alex and the full bag in his hand. “What are you packing for?”

    Alex ignored Michael’s imploring gaze on his back as he moved around the room. “Ah ha!” He held up a grey t-shirt triumphantly before adding it to his duffel.

    Standing in the doorway, Michael crossed his arms. “You didn’t answer my question. Where are you going that you need your favorite sleep shirt?”

    -

    Or, Jesse leaves behind a mess and Alex leaves again (but it's not like Michael thinks).

    Summary

    “Is that the key to your heart, honey?”

    Alex doesn’t deign to turn his head in reply. The key in question is a dainty little affair hanging from a simple piece of red twine halfway down the muscular V of Alex’s chest. He merely nods his head towards the dance floor ten feet away at the vision that is out there dancing amongst the throng of sweaty, aroused humanity, hips gyrating for his eyes only.

    “No, it’s the key to his.”

    Summary

    Alex made a split-second decision. He yanked the shed’s fire extinguisher off the wall and swung it bodily at his father. Not to take him out, just to get him away from Michael.

    “KEEP YOUR BIGOTRY TO YOURSELF. I AM DONE WITH THIS FAMILY, THIS SO-CALLED LEGACY, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, I AM DONE WITH YOU.”

    Alex slammed the shed door closed behind them without a look back. He had everything he cared about in this world on his body or clinging to it. His mother’s silver dream-catcher necklace was an ever-present warm spot against his sternum under his shirt.

    OR

    What if Alex had stood up to Sarge that fateful evening in the shed and then escaped with Michael in his arms?

    Summary

    Michael collapsed onto the floor, cradling his head in his hands. What he had said wouldn’t stop echoing in his mind.

    “Go! Go! I don't love you! I don't! We've been holding onto this thing! And what? It's gotten us nowhere. Just let go.”

    God, what was he thinking? How could he have said that to Alex, the only good thing that’d ever happened to him? He’d made him cry, he should have left. Why did he say that? Why? And why was Alex still here? Wait, had he left? Fuck, he fucked up, he finally fucked up too much-

    “Hey, Michael?”

    Summary

    Prompt: Isobel asks Alex to stop Michael from doing something rash, because of course he is. (Post 1x04)

    The thing about Michael was, he never forgets. Even if he wanted to, it was impossible for him to. His worst burden, Alex notes. He had probably etched the words into the matrix of his bones, scorching it into his mind only to replay it repeatedly, distastefully-

    Alex had the luxury of drawing a blank. It took years of practice but he was adept at it.
