    Summary

    "Am I wrong? Do you secretly love modelling? Because if you do then fucking A man, get your coin, but if you're—"

    "I can't fucking do anything else!" Derek snarls, and fuck. The shock of it, of finally saying it out loud, startles him out of his beta shift and into silence.

    Stiles squints at him. "You mean—" He drags his bottom teeth over his top lip, eyes darting between Derek's. "You mean that literally, don't you. You think you have nothing else to offer."

    "I don't have a college degree. I don't have any real life experience or transferable skills," Derek says roughly. "I'm not—a people person. Money and connections only get you so far. Most people don't— it's not worth it."

    He knows Stiles hears what he's trying really hard not to say.

    That he's not worth it.

    Summary

    Tiny arms fly up, fingers clenching and unclenching in the universal sign of grabby hands. A quiet wave of warmhearted chatter spills from the various executives around the room, and even Moira can’t stifle the soft laughter that bubbles in her chest at Oliver’s deeply perplexed stare.

    “Up.”

    “I don -,”

    “Up.”

    “Okay.”

    And then Oliver has a toddler propped up in his left arm and a baby held securely in the other and it’s a strange sight, Moira supposes, because this meeting was supposed to be about confirming designs for new military grade surveillance technology but instead, she’s watching her son have a staring contest with a four year old.

    (Or, Oliver has to call Felicity in on her day off because there's an important meeting lined up and everyone at QC is unabashedly terrible with technology. With a gaggle of investors, executives, and one Moira Queen waiting around, it's the CEO and his Executive Assistant who become the stars of the show when Felicity strolls into the office and all but dumps two small children into Oliver's arms).

    Summary

    "You’re falling for him," she says, and it’s not a question. Stiles looks up, blinks, and shakes his head.

    "No," he lies. "We work out, have really intense sex, and then eat cereal marketed for children. We have a system, okay? Why upset the arrangement?"

    Summary

    When Beth spots Dean across the crowded bar, she panics and asks a guy sitting by himself to pretend to be her boyfriend. He agrees. It doesn’t take long for Beth to realize that she may have bit off more than she could handle with Rio.
