    Summary

    Peter has a medical problem. Unfortunately, Vespa's the only one on the ship who can remedy this. Even more unfortunately, it involves a certain.... sensitive place.

    In other words, Peter gets a cyst where no man wants a cyst. Vespa has to deal with this. Also, Peter and Vespa are nothing alike, BUDDY.

    Summary

    Peter Nureyev had always been an outsider. He worked alone, and when he didn’t he never drifted close enough to the surface of whatever alias he was wearing for him to be anything other than a file in a rather overstuffed cabinet. He had done the song and dance of being himself and the universe had not been kind to whoever that person was. And so he wasn’t—that person, that is. Peter Nureyev did not stop to be Peter Nureyev when he could help it.

    --

    There are some things about being on a crew that Nureyev didn't anticipate. Sometimes you accidentally submit to the mortifying ordeal of being known and it's okay.

    Summary

    Just to tear his gaze from the piece of paper, he looked up into the faces of the dozen people he had to fool for the sake of a very important heist. They returned his unsteady look with a single, consistent message scrawled across every face: they would rather be asleep than here.

    At least Juno could agree with them on that matter.

    “Good morning, class,” Juno winced as the words fell from his mouth with all the grace of dishes crashing forth from a cabinet. Their grumbled reply was at least empathetic. “I’m going to be your substitute teacher for the next week.”

    Summary

    “Rita, you’re the closest to Juno out of all of us here and the most talkative, yet you’ve been oddly silent. What do you have to say?”

    Rita paused for a second, before speaking.

    “What did you tell Nova, Mick?”

    “Well…” Mick said, sheepishly, “I may or may not have gotten a bit teary and stammered out a response about how Dr. Glass is a very respectable man and Mr. Steel is responsible for his own choices, but we shouldn’t judge him too harshly, before running off to weep about how love is dead.”

    “Mick, you are my hero.” Vespa smirked, wiping fake tears from her eyes.

    “Well,” Rita chimed, “I think we deserve to have a little fun with this, don’t you?”

    Mick beamed, Vespa let out an ungodly cackle, and even Buddy and Jet had a nefarious glint in their eyes.

    Oh yeah, this was gonna be really entertaining.

    The teachers of Carte Blanche Intergalactic Academy know that Professor Steel's husband, one Peter Nureyev, and Dr. Rex Glass are one and the same. The students on the other hand...

    Summary

    There's something about Ransom that Vespa's never quite been able to figure out – and when Vespa's puzzled, she usually bypasses confusion in favour of a one-way ticket to pissed as hell. Is she better at keeping it under wraps, now? Sure. Does she accept him into the goddamn family? Fine. For Buddy. But when she passes him carrying Buddy's long-lost good luck charm, Vespa doesn't snap. She doesn't pin a knife to the slippery bastard's throat and ask why. Instead, she takes a breath, and goes to her wife for answers.

    (Nureyev, for his part, was certain he'd managed to leave his past behind. But one little slip and it seems an old job he'd rather keep forgotten will be coming to light sooner than he thinks, and he'll just have to deal with the fallout. It's fine. It's all completely fine.)

    Summary

    Peter has been writing. He has written while being crushed, while in a stake out, while making out with a target, and even in his sleep (he thinks).

    Juno has been ... Juno. He misses his thief. Well, he can't really say his anymore. Could he really ever have ever said that? So, he's been writing too.

     

    (They just miss each other, and now they get their second chance. I will warn you the chapter sizes will be all over the place :) it'll be super cute though! )

    Summary

    It’s been three years since Peter Nureyev left Brahma and his past behind forever. Three years of running, of hiding in the shadows, and three years of following the careers of the greatest thieves in the Outer Rim. Lately that’s meant following Buddy and Vespa--literally. And he hasn't escaped their notice.

    When they ask him to work with them he certainly can't refuse, but he soon finds the job isn't exactly what it seems, and their partnership will be complicated by secrets, both theirs and his own.
