    Summary

    “You’re—” Harley gestures vaguely at him with one hand, the other still holding Peter’s backpack by one of the straps. Peter follows his gesture and looks down at himself, then up again, confused. Harley sighs, exasperated and lost on what to do. “You’re sick,” he states. “Or high. I don’t know, but it’s something.”

    “Uh.” Peter’s eyebrows shoot up—his skin is nearly as white as a sheet of paper—and he manages to rasp out what might be a laugh if he were any semblance of his normal self. “Not high. Or sick. It’s fine.”

    Harley glares at him. “You’re shaking.”

    Peter looks down and watches his hands as they tremble. “Cold,” he offers weakly.

    “You’re a horrible liar,” Harley tells him. “Get up. It’s time for lunch and I’m either going to take you to our table or to see the nurse. I’ll decide which one it is depending on if you can walk straight.”

    or, ten things harley learns when peter's struggling, and one thing he could have already guessed.

    Summary

    Peter couldn’t stand it any longer. Any of it.

    He had to do something. He couldn’t stand the idea of Christmas morning arriving without even the tree up. And he knew May wouldn’t do it. She was at work right now, but Peter knew the second she came home she would lock herself in her room, and he would have to listen to her cry. Over and over again. Not being able to do anything.

    Peter sighed. He’d never set up the tree on his own before, and just like everything else these days, it seemed like a monumental and insurmountable task. But he had to do it. He knew it would make May feel better, even if she wouldn’t admit it. It would be wonderful for her to come home and see the apartment look a little bit more like itself.

    Or, a story about two Christmases, a year apart, but two totally different experiences. And the family Peter lost and gained along the way.

    Summary

    It was nice, for a bakery he supposed.

    Then he approached the display cabinet.

    And the foreboding slammed into him. Because every product had letters next to it. Letters. GF, DF, V, O, VGN.

    What. The. Fuck?

    Lifting his eyes to the chalkboard menu spread across the back wall Louis felt physically ill. ‘Gluten-free’, ‘organic’, ‘vegan’, ‘paleo’, ‘dair-…’ Wait, what the fuck was a paleo? He had entered some hipster-trash establishment and it was more than time to get out.

     
    OR

     

    Louis is a single dad and Harry works at the newly opened bakery down the street.

    Summary

    January seventh. Seven days since the start of 2015, and seven days since his father’s death.

    The bastard, he thinks bitterly. The past year Derek Hale had made it blatantly obvious that he hated his scrawny guts, taking every given opportunity to shove him up against a wall, growl threats in his ears and roll his eyes whenever he stepped into the room, muttering some snide comment about how spastic or idiotic he was.

    So why did he fucking volunteer to take him in?
