    Summary

    On the full moon after I finished the second lure we walked out at night. My heart beat against the little charm, where it was pinned inside the bodice of my dress. I held my father's hand. The bright arms of Mademoiselle De Lafontaine flashed as she gestured in speech to Madame Perrodon. I could scarce breathe; the moon shone on the winding path and the schloss and the little stream and the beech leaves darkly waving; and then she came.

    (A one-thing-additional AU in which Laura is Dr. Frankenstein. Only instead of the galvanizing power of electricity, she has vampires. And instead of chickenshit abandonment of in-progress experiments, she has follow-through. Also she is a lot more interested in women.)

    Summary

    There's no such thing as being woefully unprepared to teach a class when you're a spark! Or actually, maybe there is.

    Summary

    101955 Bennu hurtled alone in the void. It wasn't all bleak. Xie was an Apollo asteroid. So, xie had a near solar orbit, which wasn't exactly close. There were other Apollo asteroids, which xie never saw. Xie came close enough to Earth every few years to... not really be heard.

    So it was a complete surprise the moment that Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx for short) came calling.

    Summary

    "I think I've worked out the bad news on my own,” Rush says as crisply as he can, like that will keep the tremble out of his voice, and now he's the one who can't quite look at Eli. “What's the good news?”

    “Um. Nobody will wonder if you're lying about anything anymore?” Eli offers weakly.

    Rush sighs and rubs the heel of his hand against his forehead right where the ache is worst. “I don't think 'good news' means what you think it means.”

    Summary

    "I never did have many friends, and those I had are nearly all missing. If I could bring them back, through resolving the paradoxes, without returning us all to fal'Cie control, do you think I would hesitate, even if it meant leaving my original timeline and living in stasis for centuries to create a new one in which I might not exist?" Hope considers his past and potential future.
