    Summary

    Caleb makes a quiet noise of concern, his head lifting slightly, but his gaze remains on his books. "Ja, can I help you with something, Fjord?"

    Heat pools in his gut at the quiet cadence of Caleb's voice wrapped around his name. He shivers, hands fisted at his sides, eyes focused on the floorboards. He can do this. He can do this. Exhaling hard, he says, "Yeah, um, back on the Squall Eater... I don't mean to presume, but you helped keep me sane, and I don’t know if I ever said how grateful I am to have you with us."

    Caleb's quiet for a moment, long enough Fjord curses his own roundabout pleasantries. Should've just come out and asked for it. Caleb answers quietly. "You did not need to thank me then, Fjord, and you do not need to thank me now. I was... I am happy to help a friend in need."

    He swallows hard, steadying himself. Caleb's offered him the perfect opening. Better not mess this up. "If... if its not too much to ask..." He hesitates, biting his lip and scrubbing a hand up through his hair. "If you're amenable, I could use a steady hand."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    pitch-perfect sub fjord, praise kink, really excellent in every way. there's something really heavy and serious and sensual about their canon dynamic sometimes and this draws that to its most natural conclusion and i am in LOVE with it.

    Summary

    Phoenix and Maya finally clean out Mia's office. Far, far too many people help.

    "Jesus, Nick, you ever heard of throwing stuff out?" Maya laughs as she throws open the window, clapping her hands over the sill to shake off the dust. She's careful about where she puts her feet, Phoenix notes, despite the casual tone. It makes for a slightly awkward stance, how she steps to avoid every square of carpet Mia's body once touched. "I'd’ve thought you got rid of all this shit years ago!"
