    It wasn’t until Adora collapsed into the backseat of the cab and went to pull out the address that she realized.

    This was not her freaking phone.

    Summary

    “Nancy, we gotta go, we can’t save him,” he hears Jonathan say, and just as he watches Nancy raise her gun, something tears through his back.

    It’s heat and pain and blackness ripping through his chest, it’s tears on Jonathan’s face, it’s Nancy pulling the trigger, and they need to move they need to move they need to move and he can’t move and everything is going black and breathing doesn’t exist anymore so with whatever breath his lungs can gather, he yells.

    “Run,” he gasps out, more wheeze than word, and he feels warm blood soaking his abdomen. The thing in his chest is holding him up now, his body limp, every nerve screaming as his vision blurs. He can feel its body pulsing inside him.

    Nancy’s wide eyes narrow. Steve hears a bang, and he’s dead.

    -

    Steve never really thought he'd get a second chance.

    Summary

    When they’ve left, Robin says, carefully, “They’re cool.”

    “Huh? Oh—” Steve is flustered, and if Robin weren’t still feeling so off-balance herself, she’d laugh at him. “Yeah. Nancy seems nice.”

    “You exhibited some remarkable self-control, not flirting with her with her boyfriend standing right there.”

    “Oh, come on,” says Steve, “I haven’t stooped that low.”

     

    (In which Robin makes some friends, finds a family, and, in spite of herself, falls in love.)

    Roy Kent doesn’t make grand gestures. Or little ones, either. It was just—they’re just fucking socks, alright?

    Summary

    In which Roy's world gets bigger and smaller at the same time.

     

    The half-day of campaign filming goes about as well as can be expected. The art director tries to coax Roy into looking the precise degree of stern and serious - which makes Keeley laugh. “You spend half your career scowling, and now you’ve got stage fright?” she asks, in mock-exasperation.

    Three months ago, Roy would have mistaken it for genuine exasperation, but in those three months he’s been studying Keeley Jones with the same single-minded focus he used to devote to poring over game reels and perfecting plays.

    It’s won him a nation’s heart before, but he finds lately he cares more about one particular heart; finds that one whoop of delighted laughter from her means more than the echoes of applause in some distant stadium ever had.
