“What is it?” he demanded. “What’s wrong?”
Mia said, her voice a little choked with laughter, “It says Brian.”
“The fuck it does,” Dom said, but nobody said she was joking. He ran up to the bedroom and grabbed the shaving mirror out of the shower and got it angled right, and shit it did say Brian, the letters clear in pink new skin.

This soulmates AU is simply delightful.
Brendon is his very best friend which is what makes calling Ryan so fucking hard.
The best friend tier used to be filled by Ryan, wholly and completely. Then there was South Africa, screaming at each other in a hotel lobby then grappling with each other into an elevator and pushing each other into each of the four walls of the little metal box as their lips tore holes in their souls.

Spencer in rehab, making amends. Oh, how I wish this was longer!
He’s paralyzed with fear and regret and a healthy dose of self-disgust. It’s just… Spencer, he’s not ready to move forward but he doesn’t know how to go back either.
And one look at him makes Ryan feel a little pity curl around his heart, a touch of guilt knock against his stomach. “You know I love you, right?” he whispers, sitting down next to Spencer on the bed and tugging out one of Spencer’s hands in order to lace their fingers. “Even if you’re not. I’ll be okay if you’re not. You’re my best friend, Spencer.”
Spencer nods again and somehow finds to courage to meet Ryan’s warm chocolate eyes. For a moment all they do is stare, but then Ryan’s thumb glides over Spencer’s cheek and Spencer subconsciously licks his lips in anticipation.
This time, Ryan kisses him.

A haunting, bittersweet first time, told out of order in a way that is altogether perfect.
“You’re freaking Bren and Jon out, you freak.”
Ryan throws a bottlecap at Spencer’s head where he’s sitting across the couch, but inside he’s panicking. “Howso?” He asks, hoping his underlying panic attack isn’t too obvious.
Spencer leans back into the couch. “Apparently you’re being a little girl, which is just offensive to little girls quite frankly.” He grins lazily, and Ryan hates how his stomach does flips. It didn’t used to be like this. It used to just be Spencer and Ryan, not Spencer and Ryan and Feelings.

A funny little getting-together thing. I just really love best friends-to-lovers, okay?
It was a joke between him and Letty when Brian first got assigned to the campaign: they’d met the Secret Service team together and it had been all Dom could do not to look over at her as Han said, “Governor, this is Agent Brian O’Conner, he’ll be the head of your personal detail.”
“Well, now you really have to win,” Letty said that night, laughing deep and throaty after Dom fucked her twice even though they’d been through three cities that day. “Shit, Toretto. Do you think somebody knows?”
“If they know and this is their idea of what to do about it, I’m not complaining,” Dom said. He didn’t tell Letty she didn’t have anything to worry about, because she knew that just fine. “Jesus, he’s pretty.”

A fantastic bodyguard AU. Established Dom/Letty.
“So what the fuck even was that last night,” Letty said to Mia, the next morning, after the guys went off to the garage. “Do they do this—”
“All the time,” Mia said.
“While you’re there?” Letty said.
“Well, I think they like it better if I’m there,” Mia said. “Otherwise it might seem gay.”

In which Letty is not about to let Brian and Dom get away with shit, no matter how obtuse they’re being. (Established Dom/Letty and Brian/Mia.) This is A+ crack. 😉
The minivan was spotless, freshly waxed, and had a new carpet down in the back before they took it back home, but Mia was mad anyway: after dinner she was banging the plates around in the sink with an expression like an angry tornado, and when Dom tried to slink past her to get the empties into the recycling bin, she whirled on him. “Is it really asking too much for you to quit having sex with my husband?” she said, and shit, he wasn’t going to forgive Ramsey ever.
“Mia,” he groaned. “Do we seriously have to talk about this?”
“Jesus Christ,” Dom said. “Yeah, apparently it is asking too much; you think I want to be doing this?”

Dom discovers a (not so little) something about Brian – and about himself… This is hilarious and hot.
“Mother Mary comes through again,” Connor replies, flexes his wrists until he can feel the blood rush back to them, working its way through his veins. Makes his way around again until they’re side by side, thigh by thigh, and raises hands that still feel unreal—like they belong to someone else—to touch Murphy’s face in the dark. He doesn’t need light for this, can trace a face dearer than his own with his mind alone, touch just an aid to memory. Presses a finger against the tender flesh of Murphy’s split lip and feels the familiar outrage that floods him still at the thought of being powerless to stop any harm that comes to him.
Murphy turns just a little into it, lips pulling back as he smiles, smooth enamel of his teeth against Connor’s fingers now, and he resists the urge to press between them. Now is not the time, he knows that rationally. Murphy lunges and catches his thumb before he can withdraw and presses into the curve of his cheek instead. Worries it just a little, blunt dent and press of his mouth that’s always wicked, and is practically indecent given the circumstances.

Blast from the past – codependent twincest with more than a little folie à deux thrown in for good measure. A+.
Brian’s setting down the wrench, picking up a beer, two of them, necks held together by his practiced grip, sweat on the bottle, iced up inside. “Corona?” he’s saying, the heat of his hand, letting the bottle drip as he offers it. There’s a matching sweat ring on his t-shirt, damp around the collar, around the pits, stain of it spreading up his back as he turns for the opener.
Something trembles deep inside Dom. It shifts in his gut, dries his mouth until he can only reach for the beer, open his mouth and his throat to it. Let it sit cold inside him, chill for a moment until he warms up around it. Jesus, Jesus and it’s unsaid, unheard. There’s a long line of tradition inside Dom, half of it his own creation. Most of it says in clear cut terms, these are the things you can’t have, these are the things you can’t be. Shit that belongs in the showers, in the dark.

A perfect little coda, full of tension you could cut with a knife…
