    Summary

    (Mid April 2015)

    Lily’d had two cups of coffee before James finally wandered down, wearing a blue t-shirt and grey pyjama bottoms. His hair at least looked like he’d attempted to brush it but it was often untamable.
    “Hey,” Lily said.
    “Hey. How’d you sleep?” James asked.
    “Amazingly,” Lily replied.
    “I slept… all right. Could’ve been better,” James said then walked over to her.
    Lily leaned up into his kiss, his lips soft and strong.
    “You taste like coffee,” he said, pulling away and chuckling.
    “Want some?” she asked.
    “Nah. I’m good. I try to limit my caffeine intake,” James said.
    “As long as you’ve got plenty of energy… I’m gonna put you to work,” Lily said then laughed and leaned up to kiss him again.

    Summary

    (October 1999)

    “Never? You’ve never felt those butterflies in your stomach?” Ginny asked.
    Luna giggled some more.
    “Is that what they are? I feel happy when I think of all my friends. Are those butterflies?” Luna asked.
    Ginny felt a little sad. The evidence wasn’t supporting her hope that perhaps Luna might feel something for her.
    “When you feel the butterflies… It’s like… You want to get closer to that person. You think everything they do is special and interesting and you want them to feel the same way about you. You may even want to kiss them,” Ginny said, turning her face towards Luna.
    “I’ve never kissed anyone. No one has ever tried to kiss me,” Luna said.
    “Sometimes people are waiting for you to make the first move,” Ginny said.
    Luna laughed.
    “Ginny Weasley, I don’t think anyone is waiting for me to kiss them,” Luna said, with whimsy rather than sadness.
    “You might be surprised. You’re cuter than you know,” Ginny said then Luna turned red and giggled.

    Summary

    (Mid-March 2015)

    “Ready?” Lily asked Remus, who was literally standing on the doormat and looking antsy.
    “I was born ready,” Remus said with a big grin.
    “OK. Let’s go. Goodbye, boys. Don’t burn my house down or I will have to kill you both,” Lily said.
    “Burn the house down, you said? Will do,” James called out, making Lily smirk.
    Remus went outside to Lily’s car and she followed. By the time she had reached the car he had already put his seat belt on. Lily opened her car door and laughed.
    “You’re not the least bit excited, are you?” Lily snarked.
    “Not even a little bit,” Remus replied.

    Summary

    (Late February 2015)
    “I think Remus and Sirius are helping each other. Remus smiles so much now. I don’t think he knows how much his face lights up when he talks about Sirius. I hope they can figure out whatever it is they want from each other,” Lily said.
    “Yeah. Sirius has never been this interested in anyone before. He always thought romance was something other people did. He thought it was a lie other people told themselves. Now the bastard can’t shut up about a guy,” James said with a proud grin.
    “I mean I guess romance isn’t for everyone. I’ve known some aromantic people and some asexual people. Mostly online but they exist. But Remus and Sirius are cute together. I hope they keep wanting to be cute together,” Lily said.
    “Are you still high?” James asked.
    “I may be slightly buzzed but otherwise I am fine,” Lily said.
    “Can I kiss you?” James asked.
    “I’ll be offended if you don’t,” Lily admitted.

    Summary

    (Christmas 2014)

    “I’m poly. Or non-monogamous if you prefer. I’m dating both of them and they kinda also date each other but we’re all pretty free to date whoever we want. It’s pretty chill,” Lily said.
    “That’s cool. I’ve uh… never done anything like that,” James said, suddenly worrying that Lily wouldn’t think he was cool.
    “It’s not for everyone,” Lily said with a shrug, taking another bong hit.
    “I don’t know whether it’s for me or not. I’ve… never really known anyone who was like that. Most girls I’ve dated got jealous if I even looked at another girl,” James said.
    Lily passed the bong over to James as she exhaled then groaned.
    “That’s no way to live your life, man,” Lily said.

    Summary

    Excerpt 1: “The Revolution succeeded; it crumbled afterwards only because those whose lives got revolutionized did not follow up on the revolutionary success,” said the Bride, her words setting their closed hearts aflame. “This time, will you help us help you?”

    Excerpt 2: “Just helping the boys return to their old selves is not enough. Their schooling and future prospects will still be hindered whenever their being children of terrorists comes to light. Only by changing your world –- your society -- into one where criminals’ relatives are no longer assigned collective guilt can you truly save your brothers. This is the kind of revolution you must bring about: your Survival Strategy.”

    Summary

    "A lone woman in a man's world, attempting to survive by men's rules, without in any way discarding her womanly nature. It was a paradox she had lived with for years."

    The guards who serve under her are mocking her. In other words, it's an ordinary workday.

    After seven years of enduring trouble from the guards of the Eternal Dungeon, the royal prison's only female Seeker is determined to bring matters under her control. But how can Birdesmond Manx Chapman do so when nearly every man in the dungeon thinks she shouldn't work there?

    It will take wisdom and wit and not a little slyness for her to see her way through this test of her courage. And she mustn't forget that the man who most resents her presence is the dangerous High Seeker. . . .

    You’re nobody, Maya’s dad used to say, but not, like, in an abusive sort of way. It was more…aspirational. Be nobody. Be invisible. Strike unseen from the shadows. It was only after months of hanging out with Damian Wayne that Maya realized just how abusive that actually was.

    After the end of Robin: Son of Batman, three damaged kids and their giant bat-thing start to heal with the magic of friendship and really good food.
