    Summary

    When the first mark manifests, sitting right on the topmost rib on his left side, an elegant black, peach, and purple swirl of color that is just an abstract and intricate melange of color and shape, he’s already twenty-three, and in the Rangers, good at his job, the best, and completely at a loss as to what it means. There are no drunken shenanigans in the previous six months to explain it, and besides that, it doesn’t really look like a tattoo. He isn’t sure what it looks like, exactly. It’s abstract, no pattern or symbol to it. He tries to wash it off, half-thinking it’s some kind of joke, but it doesn’t wash and it doesn’t eventually wear off. And he’s certain there is some meaning to it, a feeling he can’t explain to himself, and which he never mentions to anyone else, which, if he had really thought it was some sort of practical joke one of the other guys had pulled on him, he surely would have. He has no idea why, but the urge to keep it to himself is strong.

    Summary

    I’m re-reading Something Like This to get my head back into this universe, and along the way I’m going to write some little fics - alternate POVs, extra scenes, and so on. I’ll post them all here as a series. I’m shooting for about one per chapter, but I may deviate from that. They’ll vary in length and will be mostly unbeta’d.

    Summary

    The thing about coding is that it’s all about languages. It’s learning new syntaxes and phrases and framings, it’s reshaping your brain to communicate in a new way, with something that feeds on logic and direct lines of thoughts.

    Where everyone else looks at Parker and sees something irrational and confusing, he sees a language, he sees a system of logic with rules to be learned.

    ***
    Hardison slowly becomes fluent in Parker and Eliot.
