    Summary

    “I’m looking at these numbers and I just can’t in good conscience recommend keeping the skating rink open. In fact, it would actually be preferable to demolish it. Its operating costs are high—far higher than any of your other facilities—and you’re not even breaking even on it. And your report concludes with a request for funds to refurbish it? Frankly, the land would be far more valuable to the city if it were to sell it to a developer. I can put you in touch with—”

    “Over my dead body,” Eric interrupts.

    “Excuse me?”

    “You heard me. You can’t sell my rink.”

    Eric Bittle is the director of the City of Samwell's Parks and Recreation department. He loves everything about his job, including overseeing the city's municipal ice rink, where generations of kids have learned to skate. Unfortunately, a citywide budget crisis has put Eric's proposed rink renovations on hold, and out-of-town auditor Jack Zimmermann is insistent that the best course of action would be to shut it down entirely. Too bad Eric isn't willing to give up his rink without a fight. He's got a plan. And he may just melt the heart of Samwell's iciest auditor along the way.

    Summary

    “What’re you thinking about,” Alicia says quietly. She’d rolled onto her stomach at some point, and if he wanted to, Bobby could probably smack her ass a little. He wants to. She rolls her eyes when he does.
    He says, “My flight’s in a few hours,” and she twists her lip.
    He says, “I am thinking … I’m thinking about how I don’t want to leave,” and she kisses him long and full and lasting.
    He clears his throat, smoothes her hair over her shoulder, says, “Lie to me. Tell me if I leave my number, you’ll call.”

    Summary

    Jaskier is a 19 year old student of the Seven Liberal Arts at Oxenfurt Academy and picked a minor in medieval history, not expecting to get so damn distracted by his Professor all the time. And, because of who he is as a person, doesn't leave it at that and tries to get what he wants. Sexual tension and mutual pining ensues.

    OR, Jaskier annoys the fuck out of his eleven year older College Professor until he snaps.

    Summary

    “What are you doing here?” He asks after a moment. “Do you want something to drink?”

    “Anything cold,” Nile says as she follows him into the tiny kitchen. “Nothing says Christmas like 75-degree weather.”

    “It’s not my fault there’s a heatwave,” Booker says, a bit affronted because he actually kind of likes Atlanta despite not visiting the city since ‘96, and it sounds like Nile’s blaming him for the downfalls of climate change.

    A heatwave hits Booker in exile, but it’s about to get even hotter.
