    Bookmarker's Notes

    "What," Arthur says, "are you about to tell me you meant to call? That you left a note and I never found it?"

    Eames snorts. "Please, I wouldn't insult your intelligence," he mutters, his voice a sandy curl of posh vowels. He cultivates another one of those interminable silences, and just as Arthur is preparing to kick Eames in the shin and make a break for it, Eames clears his throat and says, "It's just that — that first night, when we met, yeah. It was sex. You were — and are — unbearably hot."

    "I'd just worked like 30 hours straight," Arthur hears himself say, even though his cheeks are burning and his ears are burning and his throat is burning, not with embarrassment but hideous and long-banked regret.

    Grinning, Eames says, "You were ravishing, and mean, and a fantastic, fantastic fuck and — "

    Arthur feels something in his chest clench at that, because of course he'd worried about that, too, that Eames with his heavy-lidded gaze and plush mouth had had better, that Arthur had embarrassed himself by being too eager, graceless.

    " — and I'm a shit, Arthur," Eames tells him, "a total fucker, because I got up and kissed the back of your neck while you were sleeping and snuck out to shower because you were fun and sexy but I didn't think anything else of it."

    "For the record, this is the worst apology I've ever gotten," Arthur says.

    "Except that then you were working here," Eames explains, looking up finally now, curiously bashful, and it's not a look Arthur's seen on Eames's face very often before. "And you were still brutally mean and untouchably attractive and I started to figure out other things. Like how funny you can be, in a mean way. And so uncompromisingly competent, also in a mean way. And the way you charge me the British exchange rate even though I'm compensated in local currency, which is also mean, in its own way — "

    Arthur pulls his hand away from Eames, and Eames lets him go.

    " — but all of it, all through it, and more and more, all I could think was how it was such a terrible fucking shame we'd only ever have a night together," Eames says, that bashful look gone rueful now. "I mean, you hated me for being a using twat, and rightly so, and all I could think was how much I wish I'd asked if you wanted to get dinner that night, instead of just, did you want to get out of there."

    god this is funny

    Summary

    Jim has never once, in his life, believed in love. He wears his bare skin with only his own tattoo circling his ankle as a badge of honor.

    He meets a man named Leonard McCoy on a shuttle in Riverside, Iowa who believes exactly the opposite.

    (That AU in which everyone is born with a unique tattoo on their ankle that no one else has and every time you fall in love, their tattoo appears somewhere on your body.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    And here was the problem: the problems were still there. Richie still didn’t fit into Eddie’s life. Richie wanted attention, and eventually Eddie wasn’t going to be enough. Richie would be gone, and the longer Eddie let himself get tangled up in him, the more it would hurt when he left, because Richie wasn’t safe. Richie was bright. Richie burned.

    “Eds,” said Richie softly, his fingers coming up to graze Eddie’s cheek, and Eddie’s heart cracked. One night wouldn’t make it worse. He could be selfish for one night.

    “Okay,” he said, unsteadily. “Apology accepted. If you ever do anything like that again, I’m going to fuck your mom and become your stepdad so I can ground you.”

    Richie barks out a laugh. “You know, Eddie, you might just be one of my favorite people.”

    “Yeah, yeah,” said Eddie. “I bet you say that to all the boys.”

    relentlessly charming + ensemble shenanigans. love this.
