Title: if you want peace, stop fighting.
Pairing: Brendon/Ryan
Word Count: 6453
Rating: pg
Summary: There is something wholly satisfying about the crunch of Brendon's car tyres over the white limestone driveway. He rolls the windows down and enjoys the feel of the sun beating down. There is not a cloud in the sky and Brendon can hear birdsong from the large, lush trees that pepper the country-side. It is, in a word, picturesque. futurefic. fixing things.
Author's Notes: OH MY GOD. Let me first say, foxxcub I love you to pieces but writing for someone I adore is A BRAINFRYING TASK. But also, Ilyhon, for giving me fifty million extensions every time I sent an email saying, "shit! I need more time." To jocondite, SURPRISE! I'm a shitty liar, but here you go. This is for Monday nights, Tuesday afternoons, and the treasure trove of things on Glebe Point Road. For being my Sydney Uni friend. I also believe this fulfills my end of the Ryan Ross abroad fic bargain. (I'm sneaky like that.) I also owe huge debts of gratitude to clarityhiding softlyforgotten and witheveryspark for not letting me give up on this and kick it to the curb. You are three wonderful ladies, and I am blessed to have you in my life.

Brendon taps his fingers against the steering-wheel of his Smart Car and winds up the driveway, eyes straying to the browned workers, diligently tending rows of grape vines, stretching over the rolling hillsides. It's not the first place he would have chosen for Ryan to disappear to, but when he reaches the house, there's a record playing and Ryan stands in the doorway, waiting in a linen suit.

Title: All We Fear is All that Can Save Us
Pairing: Brendon/Ryan
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: ~27,000
Warnings: BDSM sex, one scene of vaguely-dubious consent, impact play, collaring, snowballing, rimming, orgasm denial, (imagined) cross-dressing, dom!Brendon
Summary: Jon and Ryan still talk to Spencer, and Jon still talks to Brendon, but since that decision was made last May, Ryan and Brendon haven't really talked. And Brendon knows that he shouldn't be surprised that Ryan's here; after all, he's here and he's never been as, well, expressive about sex as Ryan has been.

Author's Notes: Originally I tried to follow the timeline a little bit, but then real life kept happening and interfering with my writing, so I gave up and shuffled times and dates to my pleasing. This is post-divorce.

Rating: PG-13, although there's some porn that veers into R territory
Summary: Harlequin AU. When Spencer heads to Madeline Island, Wisconsin right after Christmas to visit Ryan, who's working at an inn, he's expecting to spend some quality time with his best friend. He's not expecting to fall for the inn's owner.
Author's Notes: Thanks to slowlikewine and belle_bing for the last-minute betas and help, and wordsalone and saramir for being encouraging and awesome. Of course, thanks to foxxcub for inviting me to participate in the challenge and being kind enough to give me an extension.

rossetti, I'm not sure what you had in mind with your prompts, but I hope you still enjoy this -- even if it's not exactly what you were looking for. I'm sorry it's so late, but life got a little bit crazy.

Title : Sit This One Out
Author: Elucreh
Rated: Adult
Pairing: Brendon/Spencer
Summary: In which, Spencer is a superspy and Brendon is his tech expert; also in which, being brave is difficult but worth it, explosions happen (but in a classroom environment) and Chocolate Box is a stupid code name for any operation.
Notes: For insunshine, who requested AUs and arguments that lead to sex; I hope you enjoy! With thanks to reni_days and sunsetmog for pre-reading and consistently assuring my drug-addled brain that it was a good story, and to harriet_vane because this, like everything I write, is her fault. Title from the Bond film Thunderball, "Do you mind if my friend sits this one out? She’s just dead."
