  1. Summary

    Magic makes things worse. It's pure chaos; in general, it just throws off people's lives, ruins carefully-laid plans, and messes everything up from jobs to relationships. Sometimes it can even be deadly.

    But sometimes - if you're very, very lucky - at the end of it all, magic can actually make things turn out a little better than they were before.

    Summary

    Shane’s breath catches, and as much as he wants to, he doesn’t turn to look at Ryan. He could. He could, but he doesn’t.

    He knows the answer to that question; he doesn’t have to think about it. It’s written in everything they do together, they way they look at each other, how easily life has been laid out between them, in front of them. This kind of feeling supersedes and overwrites the way he usually feels about people. Because Ryan isn’t other people; of course Ryan would invent a new way for Shane to feel about him, explicitly exclusive, one Shane doesn’t really understand, but wholly and completely recognizes. It’s something he’s spent sleepless nights pouring over, trying to figure out what movements and words mean, why they translated so easily into I belong here in this space with you.

    or; it's just two boys in a motel room with a secret.

    Summary

    "There’s work to be done and fools to look after.”

    “That’s no way to talk about your ranch hands, Ryan. Mr. Lim in particular would be mighty offended, I think.”

    Ryan squints open one eye and fixes Shane with a glare. “Don’t,” he says, and curses himself as he feels his lips twitch. “Don’t make me laugh. I’m angry with you.”

    “It won’t last,” Shane says, with all the confidence of a man who would know. “It never does.”

    Summary

    After his heroic sacrifice on behalf of the dwarves of Erebor, Bilbo will be well cared for. Naturally, he hates the idea. Crossing half the world, riding barrels, and fighting spiders was supposed to change things. No one should need to carry him anymore. Thorin understands such pride better than most, but he will stop at nothing to have the hobbit safe in his arms.
