Update!

May Demons Rest: Shinigami Sleeps (2017)
Chapter 4: Maxwell Ruin

L2 Slang

Teaser:

I tap my finger against the photo. The kid leans forward and peers at the image. “You’re a pair,” he says with a leer that’s universal in meaning.

I shrug. So what if he thinks Duo and I are involved.

“You drop him for another boss?” the kid asks.

“No.” The question makes me wonder: “Why do you ask?”

“The sad fook’s shattered, man. Some bad kind of heartache.”

Chapter 3: Downtown Denizens
L2 Slang Glossary

Teaser:

“Does this say Maxwell?” I inquire as if one of the the labeled landmarks has caught my eye.

“Maxwell? The church ruins, you mean?”

I give him a flat look. “Is there another Maxwell on this colony?”

“Not that I know of.”

In that case, it’s as good a place to start as any.

To accompany the re-write of Shinigami Sleeps, I've drummed up some bogus slang terms for use in the fic because WHY NOT?

So, here we go.  A glossary of slang used in May Demons Rest:

Here's a thing.  It happened.  Not gonna say I'm sorry.

Bungalow on AO3 (Archive Of Our Own)

Trowa POV:

“A bungalow this time,” I observe. Usually, the houses Duo renovates out of his own pocket are a minimum of three bedrooms.

“Yeah. This one spoke to me.”

“Did it talk dirty?”

Chapter 2: Calls and Calling

Teaser, Howard POV:
“Good luck, Trowa,” Howard says. With the mood Duo had been in before he’d made landfall, God knows, Trowa is gonna need as much of it as he can get.

And patience. A whole fuck ton of it.

Duo might have forgotten the fact that he has friends — that there are people who care about his skinny ass — but he hasn’t unlearned his stubborn streak. Not in the slightest.

So, I re-wrote one of my things.  It was painful for so many reasons, but I think it's ready for sharing.

May Demons Rest: Shinigami Sleeps (2017), Chapter 1 of 38
If I didn’t have a place to call home, I’d be a heartless shadow.

Please feel free to comment on what you like, compare this version to the original, and/or pose questions for the direction the new version will take. I would love to hear from you, fandom friend. (^_^)

The final chapter.

Rodeo & Ranch, Part 18: Maxwells (on AO3)

Teaser:

“Well, Jimmy an’ Brian—” Han’s best friends from school. “—have got brothers an’ cousins, an’ all I got are sisters.”

“Cousins can be girls, too,” I reminded him, thinking of Cathy.

Han rolled his eyes. “I know that. I jus’ wish…” He sighed. “How come you an’ Uncle Duo are both boys? You need a girl for babies,” he very sternly educated me.

Oh, God. I was not going to laugh. I bit my lip and nodded. “You’re right.”

Update!!

Slowing things down with this chapter.  Or stretching them out.  Whichever.

Rodeo & Ranch, Part 17: A New Normal (on AO3)

Teaser:

I pressed my lips to the side of Duo's neck. Sucked softly. Leaned back. Exhaled. My bangs feathered against his skin.

He cringed. “Damn it, Trowa. Your hair tickles.”

I nodded, dragging the strands of hair over the wet mark.

He twitched.

“I can do this all day,” I threatened.

Update!

Some heavy stuff at the end of this chapter, so give yourself plenty of time to absorb it.  Also, don't forget to check the warnings.

Rodeo & Ranch, Part 16: Brothers (on AO3)

Teaser:

“’s that how you an’ Solo met?”

“Sort of. He wasn’t my patient, but I was working while he was there.” Hilde glanced toward Duo. “You know that the doctors said—”

“He’d never walk again,” Duo murmured, glancing away. “Yeah. I remember.”

She was quiet for a moment before volunteering, “I’ve never seen so much bull-headed courage in one person.”

Silence seeped into the Jeep, heavy and thick, until I remarked, “I’m more of a dimple man, myself.”
