    Summary

    It’s the push of a well-disciplined body into exactly the right direction, a smooth kata of one, two, three, giterdone. A well executed slapshot, a triple salchow, hell, even a quarterback sneak – it’s all the same thing, in the end, all driven by the same kind of passion that gets people on their feet and screaming.

    Or: a story about sports, closets and finding yourself, in the end.

    Summary

    Bond says television gives him a headache, but sometimes Q finds him at it anyway, usually when Q’s been tucked away for the morning in this room of unapologetically bright computer screens. Bond’s eyes are always a little glassy and his hands are always buried knuckle-deep into one of the sofa cushions. Q kisses him to make his mouth soften, at least, and he says, “You don’t have to do that.”

    Summary

    "Light of my life, fire of my loins, you're not getting cold feet are you?" Stiles says, and Derek rolls his eyes. Stiles should be immune to how Derek looks, but damn, he could never be. They've been friends for three years now, and they've been there for each other every step of the way, celebrating the little victories like when Derek got his name legally changed, when Stiles went on testosterone, when Derek got approved for top surgery.

    Summary

    “It’s called a lexical gap,” Stiles continues, because something about the way Derek is looking at him makes him think that Derek might actually give a shit. “When there’s no word for something. And I think we could just make one up. Except, isn’t it sort of cool that there should be a word for something and there just isn’t? There’s just this space, this gap, where a word should be. The liminal space between words. I bet there are so many words that don’t exist. It makes my brain turn over. Nobody really - nobody cares about this shit but me. I’m not saying that to make myself seem special or anything, it’s not that. It’s more like, damn, I wish somebody cared. That’s it. That’s the gap. The space where something should be. So yeah, I think there are worse things to be scared of, and those things don’t even have names.”

    or: Derek meets Stiles at a trauma support group and they find that they might just be creating words for each other that don't exist.
