    Summary

    “The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”
    ― G.K. Chesterton

    In second century Rome, the Persian empire creeps steadily towards Roman borders, war pressing from a distance. Will is a Roman legionary medic and a pariah among the soldiers. As war looms ever closer, he finds himself forming a unique bond with the captain of the mercenaries who accompany them. The captain's name is Hannibal.

    Summary

    Hannibal needs a kitchen remodel, and his colleague and friend Alana knows just the guy to help him with his rundown new home. Enter Will Graham, carpenter and contractor extraordinaire, and devastating addition to Hannibal's daily life. When he starts running out of new projects to keep Will around, Hannibal fast realizes his infatuation is more than simple attraction - and that getting Will to agree to dinner is only the first hurdle.

    Convinced that police work PTSD and an empathy disorder mean he's better off alone, Will doesn't let many people get close. Balancing his inconsistent mental health with his burgeoning affections for Hannibal seems an almost impossible task, but somewhere along the line he realizes that asking for help- much like falling in love- is easy with the right people.

    Summary

    It doesn't come out of nowhere, despite what Dylan probably thinks.

    And, okay, Mitch knows that the super adult thing to do would have been to just talk about it, sit down on the sofa and bring it up and give his reasons and whatever, but he's forever and always himself, so that's not how it goes. Mitch waits until Dylan starts eating his gross yogurt, and just when Dylan puts his fourth scoop into his mouth, Mitch says, "I think we should have sex."

    Dylan chokes on his mouthful of yogurt, walking the two steps to the sink so he can spit it out and continue coughing, and Mitch opens up his own jar of yogurt and digs in.

    Perfect.

    (or: Mitch is ace. That doesn't mean he isn't curious.)

    Summary

    The first thing Loki notices about Thor is that he seems to never look down at his food or drink, apparently trusting the servants entirely to make sure his cup and plate are never empty for long. It would be almost too easy to poison him.

    Okay, so it wasn't actually the first thing Loki noticed about his new husband, but it's the first thing that's useful to him.

    The real first thing was his eyes.

    - based on kingloptr's thorki want.
