    Summary

    It's been a very long day for one Juno Steel. Our dear detective is would like nothing more than to collapse on his couch and pretend like sleeping there is somehow NOT going to ruin his back. Nureyev just wants to see some of that tension in Juno's shoulders and on his face melt away. As it happens, these desires are not mutually exclusive. Loosely inspired by naanadougga's excellent comic on tumblr (linked in the fic).

    Summary

    But Rita’s no fool. Rita keeps track of these things, see, and she has a theory that she knows is right. She’s not about to look it up, because that’s an invasion of privacy and she doesn’t want to invade Mister Steel’s privacy, but there are too many pieces for there not to be a puzzle.

    Summary

    My mistake had been a simple one, an amateur one; I had thought I had more time.

     

    A skilled thief had taught me many years ago that the most important ingredient in any crime is time, that efficiency and quickness of both body and mind are a thief’s chief assets in the race against finding oneself cornered or caught. It is a pearl of wisdom that I have seen proven again and again in my career, and one which I had learned the hard way to always keep at the top of my mind. The days, hours, minutes, even seconds, were the true currency of our profession, moreso than creds, or contraband, or even reputation. A thief had to be mindful how he spent those precious seconds, had to avoid throwing them away frivolously, had to barter and gamble always for just a little more time. And that was just what I had done, gambled for just a little more time with my family… with Juno. But even if one cheats at the game, stacks the decks, stuffs useful cards up one’s sleeves, and bluffs with the most unflappable of pokerfaces, one still risks so much on a gamble like that, and mine had been a losing one.
