FINAL UPDATE!!

A Safe Good Place on AO3
Chapter 10: “The stars look especially lovely tonight.”

TEASER, Trowa POV:

“Is it done?”

“It’s done. I’m done. Ready whenever you are. Wherever you are.”

Living on the streets, singing for my supper beside Cathy, I’d thought I’d understood what it meant to be humbled. Watching my sister being swept off her feet by a preppy university student who had been passing by and stopped and stared and smiled kindly, I’d thought I’d known hope. I hadn’t. Not really. Duo humbled me with those few sentences. He filled my being with hope until I had to be shining with it.

“Duo, are you sure? Your brother… your friends?” I told myself to shut up, shut up, shut up!

There was a pause. “Well, if you don’t want me, I can probably hunt my buddy down, knock him out, and steal my car keys back.”

Chapter 9: “Wanna go for a drive?”

TEASER, Duo POV:

Here we were. At gunpoint.

Well. This sucked.

Was it too late for an undo? “Should I have used Times, New Roman?” I asked.

Chapter 8: “You really… That’s not exactly meant to be eaten.”

TEASER, Trowa POV:

James pursed his lips in thought. Quirked his mouth to one side. “How about a black spot? Like in ‘Treasure Island’?” He mimed the scene for me. “You know the part where Billy Bones gets the black spot and then he croaks?”

I’d never read the story, so I didn’t know… but it sounded promising. I smiled.

James ducked his head. “It’s a dumb idea.”

“No,” I argued, giving his tense shoulders a squeeze before he could stomp off. “It’s a great idea. Come on. Give me a hand.”

Chapter 7: “This is my favorite song!”

TEASER, Trowa POV, featuring Big Sister Cathy:

“Tycho Rowan Barton, did you break in here?”

I smirked. “I wouldn’t say I broke in here.” Duo hadn’t just taught me to appreciate my birth name. He’d also lit a fire in me for the fine art of wordplay: I had broken not a thing in gaining entrance to the Winner family hunting lodge. With a shrug, I downplayed, “I just followed the example of Goldilocks.”

“A likely story.”

“I’d liked it, yes.”

She swatted me on the arm.

Chapter 6: “Fancy meeting you here.”

TEASER, DUO POV:

I said, “Get out.”

Solo sighed. “We need you to come in.”

“I heard you the first time.”

“And I’ll keep on repeating it until you agree to come back with me.”

“Fine. Looks like it’s your lucky day.”

Grinning, Solo jumped to his feet.

I punched him in the face. Hard.

“Ow! Jeez-o-fuck! What the hell was that for?”

Pick a reason, I didn’t say.

Chapter 5: “Oh, you scared me!”

TEASER:

I said to Cathy, “You know that I work for the family.”

“Only occasionally,” she quantified.

I didn’t deny it. “Would you like to know what I do for them?”

She leaned away, already shaking her head.

Chapter 4: “Well, this is awkward.”

TEASER:

I reassembled my phone and checked my messages. Cathy had called. So had one other person. Someone I couldn’t ignore.

Thank God I’d only kept him waiting twenty minutes.

I called back and was informed by Treize’s secretary that my presence was requested.

“I’ll be there in fifteen minutes.”

Chapter 3: “All I want is you.”

TEASER:

“So,” Duo said and, although he wasn’t looking at me, I knew I had his complete attention. “You should pat me down. For a wire or some other recording device.”

“What?”

Bracing his hands behind him on the dock and locking his elbows, he leaned his chin against his own shoulder and gave me a very serious look. “It’s up to you, but after you hear what I’ve got to say, you’ll wish you had.”

Here's a community/collection on AO3 that I've kicked off with the aim of providing monthly creative prompts.

There's a quote, a song rec, and a photo (by yours truly this month!) to get those creative juices flowing!

Collection: Do Your Thing on AO3
Monthly prompts: June

Feel free to pass the word along to anyone you think might enjoy the prompts! (^_^)
