    Summary

    “Hey, do you want pancakes or waffles?” Carlos asks, his weird spidey-sense kicking in as TK hovers in the doorway. Spidey-sense or the noise of TK rubbing his hands over his pajama pants clued him in. One or the other.
     
    When TK doesn’t answer, Carlos keeps going. “Or I could do a frittata if you’d rather have eggs?”

    Carlos turns, an easy smile on his face. TK stutters to a stop because there’s a bruise blooming over the left side of Carlos’ face and a cut running along his cheek that hasn’t been properly attended to.

    “What happened?”

    “What?” Carlos asks, his brow furrowing in confusion. Considering the bruising, it should hurt.

    “Carlos, your face!” TK gestures at him.

    Carlos lifts his hand to touch his face and winces slightly. “Oh, yeah.”

     

    or

    Carlos shows up to his assigned shift babysitting TK in the aftermath of the ice storm with a busted face and TK won't let that stand.

    Summary

    TK looks up to find Carlos’s mouth is curved in a half smile but his eyes are concerned. “I can go sit in the car for 10-15 minutes.”

    They could. He could walk inside alone, be welcomed in with the kid-gloves treatment that plagues him after his latest brush with death. And then Carlos would show up, and TK could feel the brittle silence that would fall. Carlos would do it, because he believes TK deserves the easier relationships with their friends.

    That’s not what TK wants.  

    TK forces his thoughts away from the itchy thoughts and takes Carlos’s hand. It’s warm and reassuring. The feel of their hands entwined reignites the feeling of excitement TK had when Carlos had suggested they go together.

    “Uh, no. No.” TK offers up a lopsided smile. “I want to go in together. It’ll be worth it to torture Nancy by not answering any of her questions.”

    Or

    Carlos and TK attend Nancy's rescheduled 126 hang together in the aftermath of everything. TK has lots of feelings.

    Summary

    "C'mere," TK whispered just before he pulled him into his arms.
    He was warm.
    Alive.
    Carlos shuddered, and burrowed closer, burying his face in TK's neck as he wrapped his own arms around the other man.
    "Nightmare?" TK asked softly, and Carlos nodded, "wanna talk about it?"
    "You were dead," he said, voice strangled as he tried to hold back tears, "you were dead, TK."

    Or, three times TK comforted Carlos when he needed it.

    an introspection fic of TK having a bad day. Set somewhere after 2x10, before the fire. Exploring TK's past, including 9/11, his addiction and mental health. IT IS NOT A RELAPSE FIC! PLEASE READ THE TAGS BEFORE READING THIS
    -----
    If you let yourself sink long enough, you eventually reach the bottom. And before long all that can be seen is darkness, all that can be felt is numbness and there is nothing that can change it. It’s that fear that it will always be this way, that arms and legs will always be too heavy to be able to swim back up to the surface.

    Summary

    “Alright,” he said. “If you don’t get on the rink, then, I’ll be calling the police,” TK told him, and Carlos widened his eyes, somehow not in fear, but definitely in shock. When the ice skater smiled at him, though, small and someway sweet, his tense shoulders seemed to relax, and he smiled back.

    “Okay,” the other man agreed. “It sounds fair.”

    It sounds like a trap, TK thought.

    But it didn’t quite sound like a mistake.

    Or,

    TK is a reclusive champion skater that takes the world in like patterns on ice. Carlos is a professor that knows everything about words ― except how to use them.

    And while he might teach TK how to take things more lightly than lightweight, he migh as well learn how to make sentences that are filled with meaning ― and not necessarily sense.

    Summary

    And under the midday sun and the fluorescent light shining on the piano and TK clasping their hands together in something like a prayer, his mind spins around and around on a singular train of thought– He’s not terrified to be human anymore.

    -

    (or. Carlos used to play the piano-- and self-destruct. Carlos through the years.)

    Summary

    "How can you look at me like that?" He raised an eyebrow at the way Carlos' dark eyes glazed over in adoration.

    "Like what?" Carlos tilted his head the other way still looking, still admiring every single feature in his lover's face.

    "Like it's the first time all over again as if you're falling in love with me all over again?" TK shrugged, he couldn't even describe the way it made him feel, it was just a beautiful site to look at too.

    "Because," Carlos answered with a soft smile and reached out to touch TK's face and caress over his cheek, "I never ever thought you'd be into me the way you are now..." He took in a deep breath to catch it for the exact reason he was staring, Carlos already took his breath away with the look he was giving back. "I even thought you would ghost me after that..." He trailed off and shook his head slightly, "...moment..."

    Summary

    Carlos has been on a mission so far, and today was exactly the 21st day being far away from his boyfriend. He missed him so much and he couldn't do anything but hugging Carlos's t-shirts and holding them close to his chest, smelling them and crying till he would fall asleep, cuddling Carlos's pillow and feeling cold without his strong arms around him; then waking up, barely having breakfast, then if Carlos could make a break time, they would text or talk on the phone for at most 5 minutes, and it wasn't enough for TK.
