    Summary

    Payton had a few too many drinks, and River helps him get home in one piece. Payton's constipated emotions get a chance for once.

    This was inspired by a conversation with dank-meme-legend on Tumblr, where we decided that drunk Payton would be super polite and vulnerable with River. So. Yeah.

    I had no choice but to write this.

    Rated Teen And Up because of underage drinking (possibly, depending on how you choose to read it). Idk, I'm not good at this whole rating and tagging business.

    Summary

    It was the morning after a rowdy high school party and the sunlight was streaming in through the window panes. Most of the guests had gone home that evening, but River had stayed over. He fell asleep shirtless, and was sprawled across a couch, lightly illuminated by sunlight. Payton had been sleeping on his bed nearby, tucked in under his white sheets, and he woke up to the delightful sight of River’s perfect body. His eyes lingered for a while, before he realized what he was doing, and shook his head. He rubbed his face and put on his glasses.

    Summary

    It was late evening and Payton and the campaign team were burning the midnight oil. It was the kind of potential all-nighter where work would blend into play and things got looser as the evening went on. What made things especially complicated, was half an hour earlier, River had come to stop by, and ever since he arrived, Payton was totally off his game.

    Summary

    River kissed him back slowly, easing it deeper; his fingers twined with Payton’s and he felt an incredible tenderness as he felt the slight shake to Payton’s hands.
    “Let’s dance,” River said against Patyon’s mouth. “Loosen up a little.”

    or;

    Payton remembers the first time he danced with River.

    Summary

    Payton tries it again. With his group of friends and former enemies, he hopes to win against the senator who doesn't give a shit. Unfortunately, he meets his former lover in New York and while he thought he drowned his emotions the day River attempted suicide he can't help himself and gets drawn to the man.

    (or basically a try on season two with the mix that River never died but moved and appears in New York to mess with Payton, not on purpose obviously)
