1.Body Work by chemm80
“Jax is tattooed with a replica of his patch, so big it covers his whole back. A skeletal grim reaper holding a sickle and some sort of crystal ball takes up the center, with “Sons of Anarchy, California” in semicircles at top and bottom. Dean’s never seen anything like it.”

3.In The Blood by chemm80
Dean wonders what the hell is the deal with this guy. It’s not like they can’t keep their hands off each other—he doesn’t even think about sex in connection with Jax when they’re in public—but somehow every time Dean’s around Jax this is where they wind up. It’s only the third time he’s seen Jax and this is still the most regular thing he’s had with anybody since high school.

4.The Bitch is [in] Back by chemm80
He can’t really remember when he wasn’t comfortable on a Harley, either his dad’s or his own. It reminds him of all the sweet little details he sometimes forgets to notice, the things that make him love riding so much: the pulse of the engine shivering against his balls, the rush of the wind in his face, the pure adrenaline charge of knowing there’s nothing between you and a messy death except your own skill and little bit of luck.

6.Break My Fall by chemm80
Jax can’t put his finger on it, but something about Dean is different; he’s changed in some fundamental way. Dean’s always been a hard man to know, doesn’t give up his secrets easily, and most of what Jax does know about him he’s learned from observation...There’s a strange energy baking off of him now, like he’s wound up, engine revved to the point of overload and getting ready to throw a rod any minute.

For someone he'd hero-worshipped for so long, Steve Rogers in the flesh is a pretty big disappointment. For one thing, he keeps looking at Tony as though he reminds him of someone else, and even if he never says anything, Tony's pretty sure it's his father. A life time of not measuring up to Howard's expectations is more than enough, thank you very much, and he's certainly not going to make an effort to live up to any of Steve's. Steve's pretty clearly failed to live up to his expectations, in any case, and that's not hypocritical at all.

 The Influence of Gaming

According to New York Times Magazine author and game aficionado Clive Thompson, whether you play them or not, video games have changed the way way you interact with technology.

How Nintendo Saved the Video Game Industry
The original Nintendo console, the NES, turned 25 this year. OTM producer PJ Vogt reports the cautionary tale of Nintendo’s rise and (relative) fall, and why both were good for video games.

The Culture of Gaming
Despite the comparisons, video games are a wholly new medium, allowing an interactivity, agency and complexity most other media just can't provide. Brooke talks to Killscreen Magazine editor Jamin Brophy-Warren, novelist Nicholson Baker, and journalist Tom Bissell about the power and potential of video games and video game design.
