    Summary

    PERCEPTION (SIGHT) [Challenging: Success] - That must be it, the bird, perched on the loose gutter of the tenement across the street and one down. It’s no bigger than your hand, with a black speckled body and a pointed yellow beak. Like a child’s drawing of a bird. The platonic ideal of birddom.

    HAND-EYE COORDINATION [Medium: Success] - It isn’t the best angle, but from this distance you could still hit it through the eye.

    LOGIC [Easy: Success] - Why the fuck would you do that?

     

    Harrier Du Bois takes up birdwatching.

    Summary

    That soulmate AU where you get the name of your soulmate on your wrist...except instead of your soulmate, it's the person who kills you.
    ___

    “Can’t eat this,” Jon says. 

    Georgie looks up from her chicken sandwich. She blanches. “Jesus, Jon. You look—what’s wrong?”

    Jon taps the top left side of his chest. “Name tag. Didn’t see until he gave us our food.”

    “Oh. Oh! You mean...” Georgie looks around like she expects to see the grim reaper perched on a booth cushion. “Shit. Should we leave?”

    “Well I mean—I don’t—I mean he might not be that Martin. And even if he were, there’s hardly anything I could do about it. You know how it is. I’d try to leave and he’d—he’d trip on his way to the kitchen and a fork would fling itself into my jugular or something.”

    Summary

    “It’s fine, I can look after the van. We don’t have the time for that, anyway. We’re on a job.”

    “Are we?” Jon mutters, bent over, rummaging at the floor of the van for the dropped phone. Good lord, but it’s filthy down here. They have to clean the van. They practically live in it, half of the time. Whenever they’re out of London, hunting and searching.

    “Yes, Jon, Christ. We are. Four people have gone missing from that bookstore. Of course there’s a bleeding Leitner there.”

    -

    Jon and Gerry are on the trail of a Leitner.

    Summary

    Miles desperately needs a way to get rid of an unwanted admirer, and what better way is there than to pretend to date his very male, straight best friend and rival? It sounded so foolproof in his head...

    Summary

    It was loud on the train. That wasn’t true, exactly - they had boarded just after midnight, and the hush of early morning had settled over the carriage soon after. The only noise was the rumble of the wheels, the rush of Jon’s breath (slow and even, as he’d fallen asleep not long after they boarded), and the faint, tinny sound of music spilling from another passenger’s headphones. It was, by all reasonable accounts, not a loud train carriage. But it was still too much.

    Everything was too much. Martin hadn’t realized how much the Lonely had muted things - muffled sounds, dulled colors, kept emotions always at an arm’s length, to be observed but not truly felt - until it had been ripped away from him. He felt like one giant exposed nerve. Simply existing in the same space as other people was almost unbearable.

    And Jon’s hand was still wrapped around his, and that was worse. All of the painful, tangled emotions that the Lonely had provided an escape from were connected to Jon. He had loved Jon. He knew that. He had waited years for Jon to give some sign that he cared and, the time would come eventually when Martin would be very glad he finally had.

    For now, though, his feelings towards Jon were...complicated.
