    Summary

    It was difficult to shake off the pervasive feeling of being permitted, even required, in the places that he most wished to be; and after knocking on the door of Flint’s cabin, Silver pushed it open without waiting for the call to enter. Flint had his back to him, but his head turned sharply at the sound. He was stood towards the stern of the cabin, by one of the gilted pillars, the hammocks newly-strung for the vanguard swinging gently beside him. “Oh,” he said, with no particular inflection, at the sight of Silver. Then he completed the action that his hands had been midway through: lifting the leather sword-belt from his waist and hanging it in place below a mounted candlestick. “What do you want?”

    (After Flint talks the crew round to bombarding Vane in his fort, Silver has some questions of his own.)

    Yeah. Steve was a great friend. Maybe even her best friend.

     

    Terrible co-worker, though.

    Summary

    „I will walk,“ Flint interrupted her objections. „You have just maneuvered yourself into a position of considerable power on this island, and now you have gone and cast aside a man the island admires and fears. It won't do for you to be seen sharing a horse with me like a wounded young girl.“

    Eleanor stared up at him; a wounded young girl full of curses, with a rifle resting like a sleeping babe in her arm.

    [Nassau, 1708. Eleanor Guthrie remembers a moment in the life of Lieutenant McGraw. Captain Flint doesn't.]

    Summary

    Jonathan has a nice voice. It’s deep, but never booming. It’s just kind and gentle, sometimes teasing and cynical but very rarely cruel. Steve clings to it like a life preserver.

    “Hey, man,” Steve says, and it sounds so far from casual that he has to laugh a little bit. “Sorry to bother you. It's not… I didn't mean to bother you. You don’t have to do anything.”

    “Don’t do that,” Jonathan says. His gentle voice sounds tinny coming through the walkie’s speaker.

    “Do what?”

    “Pull away when you need help.”

    Summary

    It’s quiet here. Even if the car alarm on the neighbor’s goddamn BMW has been going off for the past twenty minutes. Quiet, even though the alarm’s got the neighbor’s dog howling like crazy, and the neighbor works second shift and isn’t there to comfort the dumb dog.

    It’s quiet…They haven’t spoken to each other since that morning, when Yuri went off to go see his tutor, and Otabek went off to do whatever the hell it was he did in the mornings before he hit the rink.

    “You’re used to the noise?”

    “Yeah, but…I think I like the quiet too.”

    Or: Yuri spends the summer with Otabek in Almaty.

    Vax keeps reminding himself, he asked for this. Literally asked for this in words.

    But his fangs are out, his mouth’s dripping venom, and he’s hungry. With Shaun straddling him like he is, he’s not sure whether it’s hungry for his blood or hungry for Shaun’s hands on him.

    Summary

    The thing is: Sex is a good way to pass the time. Sex is good, in a pure, base, animal way. It’s a thing his body wants, another body warmclosewettight around him. Eliot had missed sex, in the year before Quentin kissed him on the mosaic. He’s missed solid masculine bodies for longer than that. It should be something simple, a biological function. But it’s not.

     

    It’s not because Q spread out and open for him is the most beautiful thing Eliot’s ever seen.

     

    Sex and love in the mosaic timeline.

    “We’re in a church,” Trevor points out.

    “So I’ve noticed.”

    “You’d suck my cock in a house of God?”

    Alucard’s lips curve upward into a sly smile. “I will do more than that, if you desire.”

    Fuck it, Trevor thinks, sliding a hand behind Alucard’s neck and pulling the man toward him. I’m already going to hell.

    Summary

    “We,” said Damen, gesturing at Nikandros and himself. “Together.”

    “You fucked a slave together?” said Laurent.

    Damen avoided answering by gesturing that Nikandros give him the wineskin back and drinking.

    “Yes,” said Nikandros.

    “Was there a shortage of slaves?” said Laurent. “That you had to share.”

    Summary

    His mother did not think Spock understood loneliness for what it is, that he did not understand the way it creeps unbidden into a heart and splits like a wound. She did not think he felt its socketed mouth twisted open and yawning at the heart of him, hungry to be fed.
