    Summary

    It’s not until she’s brought a basil and strawberry sponge cake to Neville Longbottom and his new girlfriend, Hannah Abbott, a dozen rhubarb hand-pies to Luna and Xenophilius Lovegood, and another basket of ganache-covered muffins to Dean and Seamus, that Hermione admits to herself what she’s actually doing: she’s making a thing of this. It’s a veritable PTSD tour. With pastries. And hand-skimmed clotted cream. And she has no idea why she’s doing it, but it’s becoming very apparent that she is.

     

     

     

    Sometimes you're sad. Sometimes you need dessert. And sometimes, it's a little of both.

    Summary

    Prompt fill for this prompt at The Old Guard Kink Meme:

    Joe falls in love easily and it's brought him a lot more disappointment than happiness. The people he falls for might be nice in the beginning, but once the honeymoon period is over it seems like they always find something to criticize. So after a string of relationships that always seem to end with his partners being critical of things that make Joe who he is, Joe comes into his 30s convinced he'll never settle down happily.

    Then he meets Nicky, who seems to be genuinely nice and always says the nicest things about Joe's art. Joe has gotten his heart broken too many times to be willing to give this a chance, but over the course of many months and Nicky proving him wrong time and time again, Joe slowly starts to think his love life might not be a lost cause after all.

    Summary

    After the end of his five year marriage, Joe finds himself depressed and unable to write or paint. It takes Andy bursting into his room and shoving a ticket for “Gay and Away”, a singles tour through Tuscany.

    Joe doesn't mean to buy the 300 year old villa, but he's here and heartbroken, and maybe the house will help.

    The guy helping him with the renovation, Nicolo, sure doesn't hurt.

    Summary

    Too late, Booker realizes he‘s shown his hand. It’s not purposeful, he just can’t help the way his eyes go entirely too soft, watching Joe chat with the waitress who had just dropped every single one of their drinks. He’s telling her about his ill-fated job at a bar in their second year of university, making her laugh through her tears and helping her mop up the mess of spilled beer.

    Booker’s just about to get up and help them, he is, but he’s taking a single moment to wallow in how kind Joe’s smile is. He also apparently remembers Joe’s time as a bartender very, very differently, than Joe. Joe is currently describing himself as a naïve, hapless twenty-year-old who could never remember drink orders and broke more than a few glasses trying to be smooth. Booker does not recall it like that at all. He forces himself up at last, grabs a stack of napkins off the empty table next to them and goes to help, but he’s a split second too late.

    Nicky’s coming back from the restroom with a pile of paper towels in his hands, and he’s staring straight at Booker.

    Summary

    “And it didn’t bother you that the guard thought you were -- that we were -- ?” Nicolò asks, for what is definitely the fourth time, as they bed down, hopefully hidden from view by the reeds and trees of the Nile delta.

    Yusuf sighs, rolling onto his back. “Do I mind that he thought I would be foolish enough to abandon all reason and take up with one of the men who helped sack Al-Quds? Yes, a little. Not enough to stop from using it as a perfectly serviceable escape route.”

    “No,” Nicolò says, “I mean, that you would prefer the company of other men at all.”

    Yusuf blinks, bemused. He hadn’t even thought of that. “As a rule, I try not to be insulted by accusations that are true,” he says drily.

    OR: Five times they were faking it and two times it was real.
