    Summary

    Christmas, 1916

    My dearest Klaus and Claudia —

    I pray that this letter finds you both well, and that you are being good and dutiful children for your mother and father.

    Your father has written to me of your recent voyage to the Eastern Country, and said you enjoyed the visit greatly. I am sorry that I cannot visit you at Christmas-time this year, but in my place I am sending you a volume of fairy-stories from the East, translated and retold in our own tongue for the delight and edification of children of the West like yourselves. I hope that both of you will cherish it for many years to come as a memento of your happy days abroad.

    With all of my love,

    Uncle Hartmann

    Summary

    Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,
    Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,
    Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
    Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d,
    Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me,
    Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined,
    The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?

    Answer.
    That you are here—that life exists and identity,
    That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

    -Walt Whitman

    Summary

    Nezumi left without another word. He would never let Shion see him perform as Eve; on stage or otherwise. The other boy was changed enough as it was and being around that would only change Shion.

    He wanted Shion to stay Shion for as long as possible.

    Summary

    Captain Ahab's first encounter with Moby Dick, as told by an eyewitness who finds Ishmael's version of events severely lacking. More than an eyewitness, in fact, since our narrator is serving as the Pequod's surgeon at the time. Unfortunately, however, he is about as experienced at surgery as Ishmael is at whaling ...

    A note on the tags - this is definitely gen, but it's rather slashy gen. And while there are no graphic depictions of violence, there is a very graphic depiction of (pre-anaesthetic) surgery.
