"Shit," Schuldig says. "Is Nagi serious?"
"Yes," Crawford says. "Kritiker'd bring us in out of the cold too, if we wanted."
"No thanks. What now? Do we mop up Eszett, or find something better paying?"
"There are plenty of employers for men like us," Crawford says easily. "We can stay in Japan or go wherever we want. Do you have any preferences?"
"India," Schuldig says decisively. "I like curry."
"OK," Crawford says. "I'll find us something."
"Just you and me," Schuldig muses. "Are you OK with that?"
"Hey," Crawford says, the stupid grin back on his face. "We're a team."

If Rex spoke again, he'd scream. She'd never liked Nagi.
"You're sure all the details have been handled correctly?" He fiddled with his cuff. "I want it to be respectful enough."
"I'm sure it is," Rex said, as if getting Nagi's funeral right was simple. "Please look at these files, Mamoru-sama, a new head of security must be chosen."
"Afterwards," he said, closing his eyes. How could he choose Nagi's replacement so soon after he'd killed him?
"Mamoru-sama. Naoe-san would want --"
"You don't get to speak for him," Mamoru said quietly. "Please, go away."
He wished he could cry.
Title: Ice Cold Water
Theme: Five Elements No. 3 Water
Pairing: Benton Fraser/Ray (Stanley) Kowalski
Notes: I haven't been online -at all- for the last four days. I've had sad messages from my friends, who think I've left them forever, and also, haven't been able to write any of my drabbles. They're all going to be late - but I'm doing them -right now-. So you'll see them all in the next couple of hours. I am SO sorry that they're late. I hope it's okay...

The water is ice cold. It tastes like the mountains, but it’s still bitterly cold. It swims through him, turning him into ice from the inside out. You have to keep moving around when you drink it – and then it hits your stomach, and it makes you lean forwards, feeling as though you might throw it back up. The other option is to hold the water in your mouth and swish your tongue through it. Fraser teaches him. The movement of the muscle creates heat to alleviate the cold. Ray thinks the water tastes far nicer out of Fraser’s mouth.
