The Thrill of Discovery (Channel) becomes a catalouge of Bruno's domestic abuse:
"That one must be Bruno then," Boots snickered, turning his head to catch Bruno's eye. "Bruno, what's the matter with you?"
"Otters?" Bruno rolled over onto his back. Cathy exclaimed. Bruno shut up. Boots just looked...like Boots. Bruno felt sick. Bruno gave a weak moan. Bruno shrieked.

Edward shook off Bruno's hand and continued across the road.
Boots asked. Boots' pencil thwacked Bruno in the forehead.
This Isn't The Freaking Heian Era reveals that I didn't need any more than 100 words to tell that story. except for the teapot thing:
Shindou demands, snapping Akira out of his daze. "It's nothing," he answers Shindou.
"It isn't nothing," Shindou insists. Shindou is glaring at him. "God, you're impossible," Shindou snaps, crossing his arms and glaring harder. Akira peers at Shindou in miserable confusion.
"Oh," Akira says flatly. Akira doesn't mean to laugh, but the idea of Shindou criticizing his father's strategies borders on ludicrous.
Akira's spine straightens and he narrows his eyes at Shindou, who laughs. Shindou stands without waiting for Akira to actually agree, because obviously he will, and Akira stands as well, reaching out to help Shindou separate the black stones from the white.
"Touya," Shindou says suddenly, making Akira twitch. Akira bets that Shindou has never held a teapot. "Touya," Shindou repeats, voice low. Akira's eyes are wide open.
After a handful of heartbeats, Shindou pulls back and eyes Akira critically.
"What?" Akira demands miserably.
Till All My Skin Was Gone proves that Harry is a voyeur, and retains the heartbreak of the ending:
"Don't be a child, Sirius." Remus demanded, then sighed when Sirius stared at him blankly. "Long," Remus answered, voice flat. Remus stood up. Sirius had chuckled softly.
"So did I," Sirius had answered.
"Sirius…" Lips pressing into a thin line, Remus looked up at Sirius. "Sirius, let me…" Remus laid a hand on Sirius' shoulder.
"No!" Sirius raised his eyes and found Remus with arms crossed and jaw set.
Remus eyed Sirius with dawning comprehension, gaze flickering briefly to the collar. "Sirius, you didn't." At Sirius' frown, Remus sighed. The Remus on the bed is beckoning Sirius forward, Remus remembers, and when Sirius crawls onto the bed Remus can see Harry over his shoulder. "Sirius and I…" Harry is watching again. When Sirius rolls over suddenly and pulls his Remus down to him, Remus tears his gaze away. Harry had asked.
