    Summary

    "I’ll be honest, I don’t often take new patients, and I want to make sure that the service I provide here is a good fit for your needs. Would you like to start with the reason you decided to set up an appointment with me today?”

    Jon twists the newspaper clipping in his hands again, then notices Dr. Bright looking down at it. His face gets hot, and he quickly tucks it into his pocket. “I, uhm. I saw your ad. It, ah, caught my eye, I suppose you might say.”

    Dr. Bright smiles. It’s a genuine smile, one that crinkles her eyes at the corners, but it also does very little to help Jon gauge her response. “Of course. It’s not exactly the most… typical method for advertising a therapist. Was there any particular reason it drew your attention?”

    Jon chews on his lip. “Well, ah. I don’t know that the sort of problems I have could be helped by any typical therapist.”

    ----

    Or, Somewhere Else, Jon finds a therapist.

    Summary

    “Huh. Byron Bryant.” Oliver weighs the syllables on his tongue, noticing how similar they sound to each other and thinking about how the lofty and dramatic poetic association of Lord Byron doesn’t quite fit someone like Mark. Well, maybe the dramatic part does, he amends, remembering pretty much every moment that the two of them have spent together since they first met. “Damn, do your parents hate you or something?”

    Something tightens in Mark’s jaw. Oliver worries that he might not realize that he’s joking, but then to his relief Mark laughs. “I mean, yeah. But not when they named me, weirdly enough.”

    ---

    Five times that Oliver called Mark "Byron" over the course of their relationship.

    Summary

    Samantha Barnes really doesn’t know how terrifying she is.

    “Oliver, hi. Come in,” she says warmly and steps aside, holding the door open just enough for him to step over the threshold into the foyer, as if he isn’t staring at her, wide-eyed and frozen, on her porch.

    Mark has long teased Oliver about his… reluctance around Samantha Barnes, but Oliver thinks his boyfriend is just blind to the facts. She may seem unassuming, with her tendency to stutter and smile and wear oversized sweaters that are frayed at the hems from how often she picks at them, but she is also still a director at one of the most powerful institutions with real influence over atypicals. Oliver knows that she’s got a vindictive streak a mile-wide.


    In which Oliver asks for Sam's blessing before proposing to Mark.

    Summary

    “So, what,” Damien continued, “are you Green’s new lackey, or did you just call to hear my beautiful voice?”
    “I want to help you find your parents.”
    For once in his life, Damien was quiet. Sam should’ve felt accomplished about that. As it was, she waited on pins and needles for his reaction.
    “...What the fuck do you get out of this?”

    Summary

    “It’s just—I’ve been thinking about Helen a bit since, well, since everything, obviously, and I. Um, was wondering, from that perspective, what do you think is going to happen to her?”

    Jackson blows out a breath. “In a nutshell? Probably nothing good. I mean, you saw how it’s been—and that was before she killed two people. I know there’s been a lot of reforms around these parts, but I’m sure the AM still has some dark closets somewhere.”

    “Maryland,” Sam says without thinking. “That’s—I looked up her file? It says she’s being held at a secure facility in Maryland.”

    Summary

    After the events of The College Tapes, Mark is ready to have a calm and relaxing week. The universe has different plans for him, however, and instead he embarks on several busy days of talking to friends both old and new, doing his small part to help reunite a friend group, and (most importantly) coming to the realization that he is more than a little in love with Oliver.

    Summary

    She has so much to say, but she doesn’t trust her voice to work beyond what’s strictly necessary and polite, beyond greetings and condolences and small-talk.

     

    This was supposed to have made things feel real.

    Summary

    The year is 1815, many years since Samantha Barnes was last home, and she desperately hopes that she'll be able to hide her trips from the new visitors on her doorstep. Mark Bryant hopes that he too can keep his shit together, even when a face from the past resurfaces at a masquerade ball and threatens to pull his whole life apart.

     

    She takes a breath and turns the knob, swinging the door open to reveal a man and a woman stood waiting on her doorstep.
    “Hello!” the man exclaims with a smile. “I knew there was someone here.”
    “I’m sorry about my brother,” the woman grimaces. “We’d just heard you arrived here and wanted to welcome you to the area. My name is Joan Thompson and this is my brother, Mark Bryant.”
    “Nice to meet you, m’lady,” Mark winks and Joan nudges him in the side without breaking eye contact with Sam.
    “I’m Samantha,” Sam rushes to say. “Samantha Barnes, that is.”
    “It’s lovely to meet you, Miss Barnes,” Joan smiles, her tone friendly but her eyes sharp and critical. Sam becomes painfully aware of the dust that still covers her dress.
    “Oh, I — thank you, I suppose,” she mutters nervously. “It’s odd being back here.”

    Summary

    Ray had taken one look at Mark that night, sitting there at the back table shivering and clutching a mug of tea like it was a lifeline, and had said nothing except 

     

    “You know how to hold a tattoo gun, boy?”

     

    Mark hadn’t. He does now, though, almost two months after staggering into Ray’s storefront and falling asleep on Jaylah’s couch. He finds it comforting, almost; tattooing is so different from photography, but the buzzing gun in his hand brings pictures to life in ways that settle the anxiety in his chest. It’s creating something permanent, immortalizing something loved and treasured; he gets to watch these pieces of art come to life beneath his hands, but instead of freezing a moment in time, he brings to life walking canvases. 

     

    Or: the Tattoo Artist!Mark AU no one needed but I decided to write anyways
