    Summary

    When Shane strides out from the history shelves, he turns towards the back table and hopes to see the usual piles of books and forgotten pages.

    What he gets instead is all those books and notes and some guy picking carefully through that goddamn Sasquatch book and scribbling something down on one of the sheets Shane has probably put away and-

    Shane momentarily loses his mind. Instead of taking the common sense route and hauling ass back to the help desk to get Sara or to hide, his stupid, long legs walk him up to the table and his stupid, smart aleck mouth makes him blurt out into the otherwise quiet library:

    “If you think that the ghost of Richard Ramirez haunts the Cecil Hotel, you’re on crack cocaine.”

    Or, Shane works at his university's library and, through a series of unfortunate events, meets Ryan Bergara, who believes in ghosts, not using a productive organization system for his notes, and that Amelia Earhart was abducted by aliens. Maybe most unfortunately, all of these things make Shane fall for him faster than Ryan can say: "The Whaley House is haunted."

    Summary

    "Settle down with me", Shane says without thinking and as Ryan looks at him with wide open eyes, all he can think of it's how many of Ryan's secrets he knows, how Ryan likes his coffee, and the fact that he has loved him since the moment Ryan first looked up at him and smiled.

    Summary

    Shane looks down at the medallion in his hand. He doesn’t know why he’s kept it, all these years. He doesn’t know why he’s kept it so close, always on hand. He should have sold it years and years ago, but he never quite managed to get around to it, and now here he is, in the burning building that is his whole life, with nothing else.

    Over the groaning of collapsing wood, he hears Ryan’s voice: “Shane? Shane? Shane!”

    He sounds breathless, like he’s been running. Shane kicks down the cracking front door and exits to the street, tucking the medallion into his back pocket. Ryan is standing right in front of the door, as if he had been about to run inside.

    “Tell you what, Ryan, you really know how to make an entrance,” he says, brushing ash off the front of his shirt and hoping that he’s managed to keep most of the bitterness out of his voice. “So was ruining my life once just like, not enough for you?”

    OR: don't lie to me, you wanted an Indiana Jones AU.

    Summary

    Shane’s a good person. He does his taxes, he doesn’t litter, he uses his goddamn blinkers. He’s a decent human being.

    So he’d really like to know why the universe keeps fucking him over.
