  2. Summary

    Porthos, a single father of twin girls, meets the love of his life when the twins enroll in a new school. Titles of the fics come from Carol Ann Duffy's wonderful poem 'Ship'

    In the end,
    it was nothing more
    than the toy boat of a boy
    on the local park’s lake,
    where I walked with you.

    But I knelt down
    to watch it arrive,
    its white sail shy
    with amber light,
    the late sun
    bronzing the wave
    that lifted it up,

    my ship coming in
    with its cargo of joy.

    I just can’t say enough about this. The surgical efficiency of the language, the competence kink, the world-building, the tradecraft, and the absolute gorgeous emotion. Have reread a dozen times.

    Summary

    "When Nicolo pushes himself up so he can meet Yusuf’s eye and perhaps get a hand around his cock, what he sees makes his hips and heart stutter.

    There are tears in Yusuf’s big eyes, welling up around the corners and gathering in his crow’s feet. Some have slipped free, and Yusuf is biting his own lip hard like he’s trying to hold it in.

    This is definitely new."

    Joe cries when he bottoms, and Nicky definitely, absolutely, totally doesn't get off on it.

    Summary

    As a professional bull rider, Jaime Lannister cheated death, eight seconds at a time, for more than a decade. When his luck finally runs out, Brienne Tarth becomes his unlikely savior. A slow-burn romance set against a backdrop of dangerous sports and pop culture geekery in a Westeros-flavored United States.

    What he loves might kill him
    But he's got no choice, he's a different breed
    With a voice down deep inside
    That's screamin' he was born to ride
    - "The Fever," Garth Brooks

    The one where I'm sure some people were like "bull riding, really?" but I was like "Awww yeah, a well-researched AU, that's the good shit right there."

    Summary

    "If this is supposed to be some sort of — confession, you're going to need to be more transparent. We just saved the world from atop floating ruins. I'm not feeling particularly subtle."

    I'm a fan of all of this writer's stuff, but this is a favorite.

    Summary

    “Stay. We’ll be good.” It’s almost an apology, and unnecessary really, but something in Aramis’ tone is too magnetic for Athos to dismiss.
    Porthos rears back. “We will?”
    Aramis cants his head, turning first to look at Porthos, then at Athos. “We could… all… be good. Together?”
