    Summary

    Joo-won turned over again, restless, squirming until he’d tossed the last of the covers away from him. He blinked awake slowly at the sudden coolness, turning to check the time on the alarm clock on his bedside table. Not yet five in the morning, the sky outside the windows a dim grey seeping gently through the slatted blinds. Beside him, Dong-sik lay sleeping still. Faced away from Joo-won, the subtle rise and fall of breath moving slowly through the curve of his body. He had cast off his covers, too, the unseasonal heat of the spring night visible in the sheen of sweat rising across his brown skin, the beguiling extra twist to the curl of his dark hair. 

    It had taken Joo-won years to get Dong-sik to sleep at all. More time than that to get him to sleep in comfort, after twenty years of sleep snatched in rare moments of unexpected freedom from consciousness while wearing whatever clothes happened to be on his back at the time. These days, Dong-sik slept in boxers in the warmer months, and tracksuit bottoms when it was cold. Joo-won slept beside him, fastidiously turned out in neat pyjama sets, always running a little colder than Dong-sik.

    Summary

    “Tell me a secret.”
    A groan and a curse. The bed shifting as Jason rolls over onto his side, away.
    “Jason. Tell me a secret.”
    “Here’s a secret - I was asleep until you woke me up asking for secrets.”

    Dick can't sleep, so he wakes Jason up asking for secrets. But some secrets are harder to share than others.

    Summary

    It started as a joke. A friendly ribbing between former rivals that had legs, most frequently deployed in exasperation at one of his more unorthodox strategies. He had his own barbs, of course, but none as consistent as his partner’s assertion that he was a terrible spy.

    He doesn’t know when it changed. When the words started to convey other things besides annoyance, good-natured or otherwise. Once he realizes it, though, he starts paying attention. That’s not to say he understands everything that’s behind the words. He can’t, or won’t, let himself consider it too carefully. Not for a while, anyway.

    (5 times Illya tells Napoleon he’s a terrible spy, and 1 time he says what he really means well, actually, he still tells him that time too.)
