    Summary

    When Jan Van Eck, Connecticut's Republican senator, makes a $30 million donation to Yale University, Kaz Brekker suspects foul play between him and the university president, Dr. Pekka Rollins. There's foul play, alright, but not the kind he expected. He also didn't expect to meet his five closest friends in the process of trying to take Dr. Rollins down. Yet, here they are, crammed into a restaurant booth like normal college students, celebrating over waffles after uncovering one of the biggest political scandals that America has ever seen (unlike normal college students).

    (Alternatively, the Crows take Yale University by storm. Includes both textfic and prose.)

    Summary

    30 minutes, an emotional phone call to Tommy’s parents, and some tears that were totally not shed, later- Tommy is walking out of Techno’s office, a signed hall pass clutched tightly in his right hand.

    As he makes his way back up the stairs to his now fifth-period class, he feels the signature annoying itch, on his left arm this time, that always accompanies a soulmate marking their body. Rolling his eyes exasperatedly, he pulls up his sleeve, expecting to find Phil’s newest lesson plan or some of Wilbur’s dumb doodles, but instead, he gets a nice surprise.

    Right there, in Technoblade’s neat scrawl: “care abt u, kiddo. good luck”

    Already, he can see Wilbur start to draw little, stupid, hearts around it. Phil scribbles in question marks, and writes a little ‘text me’, and underlines it twice, and Tommy knows he cares as well.

    He wipes his watery eyes, smiles, and then continues his slow ascent up the flight of stairs to his next class period.

    Summary

    Dust Lavellan is pretty happy with her life - she tends bar at The Siren's Call, sleeps with whoever she wants, and isn't responsible for anyone's life but her own. At least, until some random kid stumbles out in front of her motorcycle one afternoon. A kid with a really hot dad...

    The Iron Bull never expected to be a dad, let alone a single dad with an adopted 'Vint kid, but it's pretty much the best thing that's ever happened to him. Sure his sex life is a little limited, what with raising a kid, coaching a Little League team, and working full time. Until he comes home and finds a really hot elf eating cookies on the porch with his kid...

    Eleven year old Cremisius "Krem" Aclassi wants two things - his Little League team to go to the World Series, and to grow up to be a chef. Okay, three things: he'd really like his dad to be slightly less of a huge dork around his new friend Dust. Why are grown ups like this? Can't they just kiss and get it over with already?

    Summary

    Xiao’s feet sizzle on the black pavement beneath him. It’s early morning, around ten and it’s already excruciatingly sweltering hot outside. Xiao lathers on sunscreen onto his face carefully as to not get it into his eyes.

    Venti stands across from Xiao in a pair of Cecila swim trunks that he hurriedly got the day before. With water sport shoes on his feet that always give Xiao blisters.

    (But maybe the watersport shoes would have been a better idea than walking around barefoot on concrete in ninety degree weather)

    Or Venti and Xiao indulge in waterpark fun, and Xiao realizes he is in love with Venti.
