    Summary

    “Did you fix the grappling hook on Elephant Gambit?” Derrick asks, sharply.

    Shaq blinks. “Yeah, I -”

    “Good,” Derrick says. He shifts his grip from Shaq’s collar to their arm, steering them out of Bourbon Lancer’s shadow. “We’re stealing it.”

    (or: two mechanics walk into a jaeger.)

    Summary

    “An update from the dugout,” the announcer says, and Val’s whole body goes ice-water cold. “Nerd Pacheco—”

    There’s more, Val’s sure, but he’s already running. (Or: a study of a super-allergy.)

    Summary

    “It is, you suppose, your weight to carry, the gravity of what happens when the balance of the Fire shifts, and somewhere in the back of your mind you know it’s only going to continue to grow till you’re carrying the weight of the entire city on your shoulders”
    ---
    Tyreek Olive lives and dies and maybe tries to learn along the way.

    (an (almost) 14k exploration of the firefighter's first (and for a long time, only) incinerated player)

    Summary

    Sundays were always Suzanne household family nights, but the first Sunday of the month went unspoken as mandatory. Tour schedules were altered, work dinners postponed, on-call days asked off or traded, and if Declan truly was set to be across the country, the answer always came, “Well then, how about Monday instead?” Now that they were between seasons, there wasn’t any point in trying to get out of it.

    (There are three constants in life: death, taxes, and awkward family dinners.)
