This is the 4th story in the journey of Tristan James "TJ" Michaels Jr and his husband Jackson along with their septuplets. This story will follow TJ, Jackson, Grayson, Trace, Beau and Lucas as they explore parenthood with a few bumps in the road. Reading at least the last two chapters of TJ's Journey to Recovery will introduce you to the septuplets and their cousins.
tshiro has a giant roll of inclusive pride stickers, a job at a nondescript welding shop, a tiktok account, and an agenda to combat the heteronormative status-quo of his chosen profession.
Keith has a rusty vintage motorcycle, the best uncles anyone could ask for, and a slight infatuation with a man who uses puns shamelessly and can bench press twice what Keith weighs. And now he needs a welding specialist.
Or: The one where Shiro is an out-and-proud welder and Keith is really into the terrible puns he makes.
Shiro keeps fighting the cook at Waffle House who makes his eggs wrong.
Keith doesn't even work at Waffle House, but he's never had so much fun outside a kitchen as he does throwing punches out back.
Adam is really fucking sick of this nonsense and wants his boyfriend to grow up.
Keith is absolutely smitten for the beautiful man who makes Space Shuttles from his waffles in the Holt's diner every morning. And considering that each morning he needs to make a brand new first impression, it's a good job Kosmo is as cute as he is.
Or: all the cute potential of '50 First Dates', made even sweeter by Sheith.
Keith does not want to wait until after his boyfriend gets back from Kerberos to have sex for the first time, but neither of them want to try and sneak a quickie in at the Garrison where they are continually watched, interrupted, and their schedules pull them away from each other.
But Keith knows a place out in the desert, and with a little preparation, Shiro is going to make the cabin perfect for the boy he loves.
After a morning of hard sparring with his best friend, Shiro is looking forward to a shower. But he's forgotten his shampoo, and Keith's price to borrow his, is that Shiro let's him wash his hair.
Hopefully no one else will want to use the showers...
