"You shitting arse. You're joking."

"I'm not, I'm afraid." Adaar sips his beer and tries a look he probably thinks is apologetic. Sera doesn't buy it for a second.

It was a defense mechanism more than anything else, the running away. Steve had never run before. Someone told him once if he ran away he'd never be able to stop, that he'd always be running. That was then, and this is... not then at all. He could run now because he was confident he'd be able to face whatever caught up with him. Since the serum worked, he'd survived more in the few months (and the subsequent decades) than he ever thought one person could withstand. If he was still around after all that, then yeah, he was pretty confident he could take on anything.

Except the pity. Damn. )

Sam wakes up two minutes before the alarm and turns it off before it can blare in his ear. He can't stand hearing the classic rock every morning, but he tunes to the classic rock radio station first thing in every new motel room, right after he locks the door and remembers how to breathe again.

Captained by a strange young girl and crewed by the oddest assortment of people Sophie could imagine, the plan is to ship out for lands unknown and treasures undreamed of. Things aboard The Tumbler's Fall don't always go according to plan, it turns out...

"We should leave him alone," she says.

For as long as Alec could remember the first day of school was one he looked forward to for weeks. New shoes, new pencils, new friends to make, and Nana saying how proud she was of him.

This year was different though. He couldn't feel less excited if he tried. The first day of college was three weeks away and his stomach was a knot of dread. )

On the eve of her first international tour, worldwide pop superstar Parker, is plagued by fear, doubt, and regret over the choices she's made. Her pre-fame best friend (Eliot) has suddenly reappeared in her life, the new DJ (Alec) is a touch too familiar for comfort, and maybe Parker's libido is out of control.

They're all in for a very interesting tour.

| | THE ART | |



sunspot: zetti face with a curling fern (miguel plays music good)


Twenty-two months ago, when Parker was just a regular girl, things were a lot more simple. She was still a girl now, of course (though there were tabloids out there that were convinced otherwise), but now she was also the number one selling, chart topping, most talked about pop star of the decade. That complicated things considerably.

It started with a stranger in a bar. She met a man who said he could make her a star and she'd signed all the paperwork he put in front of her right then. )

Part Two

sunspot: we have offended the heavens. aren't you the least bit excited? (excited for this atrocity)


The stadium at Mexico City was bigger than ninety percent of the venues Parker had played in her life. When they showed up just in time to start the first sound check, Parker nearly turned around and ran out again. Eliot caught her by the elbow and pulled her back.

"Relax, Parker, it's just a concert. You've done this a thousand times before."

She scowled. "Playing to a bunch of drunks in the back of your bar doesn't really count."

"Well, you've done a lot more than just that. But why is it so different anyway? I mean, besides the fact that you have a boat made of glitter in your hair now, this is basically the same. Just a little bigger."

She touched her hairboat self consciously. )

Part Three

sunspot: bright pink text on black "in lust we trust" (in lust we trust)


Things were better after that. Parker was pretty sure it was better, anyway. She was spending time with Eliot and it wasn't weird. It was like old times. Almost constant laughter and hijinks and easy, comfortable companionship.

It helped that Spain was the most beautiful place Parker had ever seen. She was absolutely going to come back when she had more time to spend, but as it was, she had to settle for filling disposable cameras with photo after photo. Nate kept trying to buy her a digital camera, but she liked it impermanence behind a disposable. She wanted to take the colours and feelings of the city and keep them inside her forever, memories remaining long after the place and the camera were gone.

After the afternoon concert in Barcelona, she tricked Nate into distracting the front desk staff at the hotel while she and Eliot snuck through the fire escape onto the roof to watch the sunset. )

Part Four

sunspot: hardison, eliot and parker (hardison eliot parker)


Parker had spent the night mostly awake. Eliot slept like a rock and Parker curled across his chest like a cat, but she couldn't get to sleep. Her mind was spinning with possible futures and visions of baby bunnies and she knew she was going to majorly regret it when Nate showed up to get them onto the plane in a few hours.

She slept most of the way from Rome to Tokyo and threatened anyone who attempted to wake her with bared teeth and a growl. )

Author's Notes: Thanks to [personal profile] sparrowshellcat and [livejournal.com profile] maskedfangirl for the beta. Written for Round 13 @ Porn Battle, for the prompt "undercover". No, I'm not sure how it related in my mind, but there you go.

--

At first, Alec just plain doesn't get why it's always lights off with Eliot.

Eliot never gets undressed in front of him and he's always up and gone before Alec wakes up, and they never, ever shower together, no matter how messy and sweaty they've gotten. )
