3 it was more than worth it » Claire shook her head, lacing their fingers together. "How about we lay down some ground rules?" Jack chuckled. "Rules, huh?" "Yes." A smirk twitched at her lips. "If you come within six inches of my personal space in the office, I have permission to taze you." (Or: 7 times people found out about Jack and Claire's relationship plus 1 time people were told.)

come on, babe (we're gonna brush the sky) It was a note, Claire realized upon closer inspection, a note scribbled in very familiar cursive. Its message was concise: "You'll need these." Right. Jack. (Or: Claire wakes up after a wild night out. Jack is there, too. Part three of "and all that jazz.")

1 find a flask (we're playing fast and loose) Of course, Jack's age hadn't stopped a few beautiful young women from approaching him with a wink and a casual hand trailing across his chest. One girl had curly dark hair and was even wearing a short red dress. But none of them were Claire, and therein lay the problem. (Or: Jack tries to find Claire on her night out. Easier said than done.

all i need is a taste Claire hums in agreement, undoing another two of Margot's buttons. "Even I could kiss you better than—better than what's-his-face, I bet." It isn't until Margot's back stiffens beneath her touch that Claire realizes what sequence of words has left her mouth.

Based on the way Jack cut himself off with an awkward cough halfway through his sentence, Claire had a feeling her phone had picked up the sound of her skirt unzipping just fine.

won't you hang a picture? She bit her tongue to hold back a laugh. If only the court could see him now—the fearless, fiery Jack McCoy sleeping on his stomach with one hand under his pillow and snoring like a disgruntled cat. Maybe it was selfish, but Claire reveled in the fact that this sight was one reserved solely for her. (Or: It's 3 AM, and Claire Kincaid finds herself thinking about Jack McCoy.)

3 this thing of darkness (i acknowledge mine) » Flash sighed. "So what do I have to do to get rid of you?" Why would you want to do that? I am delightful company. "Why? How about because I have a life! A girlfriend! I'm graduating in less than two months! This is the worst possible time shit could happen to me!" (An MJ/Flash romcom meets a Venom!Flash dramedy.

time apart, time together And if Ty Lee notices the way Katara's breath hitches, she refrains from commenting. Instead, she merely moves a little closer to Katara as they exit the courtyard, arm in arm, leaving Katara to wonder how much closer time will allow them to get. (Ty Lee is Katara's bodyguard. But it's just a temporary assignment, meaning there's no risk of any unintended consequences. Right?)

match point Jack raised an eyebrow. "Claire, Adam wants us to be in the office at 7 tomorrow." Claire bit back another sigh. "I'm well aware, Jack, but like you said—my car isn't going anywhere right now. Not without a tow truck." "Then let me take you home." Claire stiffened, her traitorous heart skipping a beat at his suggestion. "I'm sorry?"

if memories could fade away "Please, Ned. I am trying to savor the moment. You should be flattered." Ned grumbles something under his breath in Tagalog, not that MJ needs to understand the words to understand what is being said because he's Ned and she's MJ and it's always been just them, the two of them, eight years going on eighteen.

Walls "Miss Jones-Watson, you're partnered with Mr. Thompson." Flash's eyes found hers from across the classroom, and MJ gave him a curt nod to acknowledge their pairing.

impulse (Contains spoilers for the credits scene of Venom: Let There Be Carnage.) Flash has made a lot of impulsive decisions in his life. His nickname didn't come about for no reason.
