So, here it is!!  An actual FOR REAL UPDATE on Tomb Raiders.  Smuts ahoy.

Tomb Raiders on AO3 (with all teh smuts)

Tomb Raiders on fanfiction.net (sexytimes have been edited out of Graduation Day, Part 2)

Teaser, Trowa POV:

When Howard offered the troupe a ride back to Lagos, the captain looked to me and I nodded. I was steady now. I was ready to move forward. They’d given me their best and now it was up to me to do the rest.

Howard filed a flight plan for the following afternoon.

I was equal parts sad and relieved to see them go.

Sad because, without them, I’d have likely gone bossies in those first few days as my mind trapped me in that small, dark box deep in the ground over and over again. They’d had my back until Duo had schemed up a way to get me through the night and, though I had absolutely no regrets about leaving the troupe behind to be with Duo in the first place, I had missed those ooms. And not just because I’d been one out against Khushrenada’s men for the last four months.

But I was also relieved to see them off because, if they stayed any longer, I really would go bossies.

The morning they were due to head out, Duo received handshakes from Wallace and Kask that were exuberant enough to test his balance on his crutches.

Bryce gave a go at imitating my kerel’s coaster moves on the dance floor, but Duo just rolled his eyes and told him to keep at it… if he wanted to give a pack of starving hyenas a bloody good skrik.

I laughed.

Martins offered Duo a high-five.

The captain clapped a hand on Duo’s shoulder and told me, “You hit a luck with this one.”

“Actually,” Duo argued back, his gaze on me, “I hit a luck with him.”

FINAL UPDATE!!

Chapter 38: Epilogue

L2 Slang

Teaser, Quatre POV:

“You know, Tro. Next year, I think we should bring a date for Wufei.”

Wufei glowers.

Trowa grins. “He does look a little... lonely.”

“Keiko or Miffy, ya think?”

“Miffy. Definitely Miffy.”

“Right. Grigori would end up dueling Wufei for Keiko’s honor and—actually, hold up. I like that better. Let’s bring Keiko.”

Trowa nods solemnly. “And a reliable video camera.”

“Ooh! We can sell tickets, T-shirts, pay-per-view!” Duo grandstands.

Wufei informs them in his best Preventer tone, “You — the both of you — are one syllable away from getting dumped back in that hole and left there overnight.”

Taking in the feral gleam in Wufei’s dark eyes, Duo restrains his laughter with an effort and nods, holding his snow-crusted, mittened hands up in surrender.

Chapter 37: Full Confession

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

The temptation to summon a ghost of him is so strong I’m momentarily overwhelmed. I have enough memories to work from. More than enough. There’s no question that I need him badly enough to pull together an imaginary friend. What does it matter if I become one of those crazy, pathetic creatures that wander around in a daze, talking to people who aren’t there? It would be better than being alone.

But I know I won’t do it. The price is too high. No one would ever let me on the high wire or trapeze again. I’d be banned from visiting the cats. I’d be excluded from the knife-throwing routine. Eventually, there’d be nothing left for me to do here except oversee the generators and ask a Duo who isn’t there if he could pass me the oil can.

Bottom line: I’d have to give up the circus, the only home I have left.

Besides, Cathy would either have me committed or she’d hunt Duo down and haul him back here. I can’t bear the thought of either.

So I won’t think about it. It’ll be like it never was. Like it had never happened. Like I’d never felt—

“Hey, Tro. One question: do you love me?”

Chapter 36: Fishing Story

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

“So, when are you and me doing this fishing thing? Maybe not on a lake because, dude, you’re totally right about the mosquitoes. They were orbiting us like trawlers around mining satellites.” I shudder. “So,” I propose, “ocean fishing?”

Tro tilts his head to the side and considers me. “Can you swim?”

“Can I swim,” I repeat, indignant. “What kind of question is that?”

“The kind someone who’s planning on throwing you overboard would ask,” Trowa retorts.

Such a charmer, this one.

“Still having a tough time holding onto the mystery, eh?”

“No self discipline,” he agrees drolly.

“Ha! Now that’s funny.”

Chapter 35: Trowa's Turn

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

Turning in the doorway, Cathy informs both of us in a loud voice and with a militant gleam in her eyes, “Trowa doesn’t need a hug. He needs a swift kick in the pants. Have a good trip, guys!”

The trailer door slams closed behind her.

Duo considers her dramatic exit for a moment before demanding of me, “Dude, what did you do to piss her off so bad?”

I shrug. The duffel zipper screams shut. “She knows I don’t do goodbyes.”

“Hm,” Duo replies, noting that detail. Noting everything. “What’s up, Tro?”

I don’t know how to answer that with words, so I turn, place my bag next to his still-empty backpack, and run my hand down the center of his back. The muscles relax instantly beneath my touch and then his spine flexes. In the next instant, his arms are around my waist and our mouths are moving together in choreographed motions. Familiar. Comforting.

I want this. More of this. An indefinite of this.

I want in vain.

But if I don’t ask him for one more thing before we leave, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life. I don’t have room in my soul for any more regret. Especially not this one.

I breathe my request against his lips, “Let me have my turn tonight. Please?”

Chapter 34: A Planned Experiment

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

Oh, God. I cannot let myself think about it now. I’m supposed to be practicing the high wire routine that Cathy and I are performing tonight.

The second time I miss my cue, she sighs and points me over to the landing platform. I go. I need to get my head together.

I sit. She sits next to me. “So, I’m guessing since you weren’t the one wincing and squirming in your chair at breakfast this morning, that Duo bottomed for you.”

I bury my face in my hands. Wish for death. Damn the safety net.

Cathy pats my leg. “I’m glad you’re happy together, Trowa.”

“But?” I mumble.

“But I wish you’d gotten around to it sooner. I’ve lost twenty creds and Alvina is going to be a real ‘queen of the big top’ now.”

Chapter 33: Forgiveness

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

“No truck engine metaphors today?”

I grin. “You gonna lemme lube your piston?”

Trowa covers his face with both hands. “I hate you,” he mutters.

“You love me,” I insist.

“Same thing.”

WARNINGS: heavy issues ahoy.  Srsly, take a minute or two and read the warnings at the top of the chapter before you dive in.

Chapter 32: A Godless City

L2 Slang

Teaser, Trowa POV:

A father kneels beside his daughter at Duo’s table. He’s going to help her guess which tea cup has the little red ball. What they don’t know is that after Duo sets up the trick – one ball, three cups – he slips an identical ball under all of them. Tonight’s voucher is a free posed Polaroid photo with the performer of your choice.

The girl squeals with delight when she wins and clutches the voucher happily. Amazingly, I’m the one she chooses to use it on. I somersault over in response to her shy smile and pointed finger in my direction. But as the father moves closer to be included in the photo and I glimpse his face—

No. Please, no.

Wait.

Stop.

It’s not him. It can’t be.
 
 
Manny
UPDATE!! Yay!!

Chapter 31: First Gear

L2 Slang

Teaser, Duo POV:

The tires plunge into a pothole that causes us both to bounce on the bench seat. “Whoo-hoo! That was exciting, yeah? Let’s mark that on the calendar.”

Trowa snorts softly. “I give it a solid 5.5.”

“You’re a harsh judge, man. On the scale of potholes, that was totally a seven.”

“Spoken like a colony boy.”

“Yeah? You like any colony boys?”

Trowa lifts a hand and makes a silent production of counting off on one finger, then pausing for a very long time, wincing as he struggles to recall any others. “Just one. So far,” he finally determines.

“So what d’you like about him?” I ferret with a playful grin. “He looks good in a seat belt?”

“That I can’t wait to unbuckle for him.”
