    Summary

    When Nicky accepts an offer to housesit his best friend's home for six weeks while he's out of the country, he sees it as an opportunity to save up some money before doing yet another round of apartment hunting.

    What he hadn't planned on was that Joe, Yunis' brother that he's been in love with since he was a kid was also coming home for the summer as a surprise to his family - now the men who had been circling around one another for decades, have no distractions, no commitments, and might be ready to face some facts: that maybe they are perfect for one another.

    Summary

    At the end of the day, Christopher reckoned he knew his Dad better than anybody else in the entire world. And that was why it was so puzzling on the days where Dad was a total blank slate. Because Dad was never a blank slate, but he had been since he got Hurt-with-a-capital-H and he had been since he quit the 118.

    Summary

    His whole childhood had been leading him to think that sex with a sacred, wonderful thing, only to be shared with someone with whom you were bonded in love and trust. That it was a holy covenant. And then suddenly, as soon as he realised that the feelings he was feeling for other boys weren’t just admiration and friendship, that he wanted to kiss them, to be close to them, sex became frightening. Wrong. Sinful.

     

     

    When he left that world, he realised that to others, sex was cheap. It didn’t have to mean anything, and many people actively preferred it not to. So he had a choice, he thought. Sex, without love. Or no sex at all.
    There was no way that anyone was going to love him.

    Summary

    “911 what’s your emergency?”

    “Oh, uh… hey Eds.”

    “Buck? What’s wrong?”

    “Nothing, uh, nothing’s really wrong. My radio just got messed up when I jumped. I can hear Cap but can’t respond. Can you let him know everything’s all good in here? Or, all good considering?”

    “Jumped?”
