“Where’s your booze?” she asks over her shoulder.
He chuckles at her as he follows her into his apartment. “Top of the fridge. Pour me one too? Glasses are in the cabinet directly to the left.”
“You’ve got a lot to learn about me, Murdock. Because I don’t need a glass," she scoffs, crossing to the kitchen.
He stops at the edge of the counter, shaking his head at her as she arrives at the fridge and reaches into the cabinet above. “Oh, I know. The glass is for me so that I get some amount of whiskey before you drink the entire bottle.”
"Fast learner. Maybe you’re not as dumb as I thought," she says, smirking.
“Wow. Now, that is the nicest thing you’ve ever said to me.”
She downs a hefty swig and shrugs. “I’m feeling magnanimous today. But don’t count on that continuing.”
“I don’t know. I think I’m growing on you, Jones.”
“Don’t push your luck, Murdock.”
“Wouldn’t dream of it.” ---
A collection of the Inktober for Writers/Fictober one-shots I wrote on tumblr for everyone’s favorite snarky duo. They all exist in the same world (ish) and unless otherwise specified, could probably be read along with my other stuff.

“Jess, be honest. If not with yourself, with me. You don’t hate him. And just think- what if he didn’t hate you?”
“Well, if we’re imagining impossible things, why stop there? What if money grew on trees and pigs could fly?”
“I’m serious. Can you look me in the eye and tell me that you wouldn’t want to date him if you knew he was interested?”
Jessica rolls her eyes. “Duh. Or did you forget that I’m not the one who’s blind?”
“Soooo, that’s a yes?”
Jessica scoffs and shrugs. “Uh … I - I guess. But it’s all imaginary anyway, so don’t act like you’ve won any kind of victory.”
With a resigned sigh, Trish sets down her fork and lifts her hands in surrender. “Fine. I’ll let it go. For now. But I’ve still got some time left to convince you.”
“Whatever you have to tell yourself, sis.” ---
Or, a Darejones High School AU for Justybean/Queenofthelostboys for the 2018 Darejones Valentines Day Fic Exchange which is very, very loosely based on Much Ado About Nothing.

“So, how were you thinking we’d get home? I’d say cab, but it’s probably impossible to find one still in service this late and this far out. But I guess there’s always the F train. I think there’s a stop not too far from here—”
Matt bristles beside her. At the feel of the tension he is suddenly radiating, Jessica slows and narrows her eyes at him. “Something wrong?”
He heaves a heavy sigh and shakes his head. “No, it’s nothing. I just … thought we’d walk.”
She stops short, shivering in place to illustrate her point. “In eight degree weather that’s basically into negative digits with the wind chill?”
Matt pauses and moves the few paces back to her as he shrugs. “It’s not that far. We walked here, didn’t we? More or less? And isn’t your blood pumping after all that exercise?”
Jessica scoffs. “Not anymore, it’s not.” ---
In which Jessica is with Matt on patrol one night, but it's cold and she just wants to take the subway home; however, Matt does not. She gains a greater appreciation for his reasoning when she learns *why* not.

The man blinks, surprised, but nods his head a few times, considering. “What about sight? You didn’t mention that. Is that enhanced, too?”
“And why not?” the man asks with an air of petulance, as though personally offended by Matt’s answer.
“Because I’m blind,” Matt says with a shrug and a flat, matter of fact tone.
This catches the man’s attention again. “What? Really? Come here,” he says and waggles his index finger, beckoning Matt over.
Matt tries to resist, to fight the compulsion driving him to comply, he really does, but it’s as if he’s being controlled remotely and this man works the control panel. The desire builds subtly, like a fog. But as it rolls into his mind and down his spine, it wraps around his ankles. And then his feet move of their own volition, leading him to stand in front of the man.
“Take off your mask.”
What if Matt met Kilgrave? And then, what if he met Jessica before the events of The Defenders? Canon AU set in JJ S1 in which Matt meets Kilgrave and learns first-hand what it's like to suffer under his control, until Jessica helps him escape.
Written for Longdaysjourney in the 2020 Daredevil/Defenders Exchange.
