    Summary

    1985. Four years after the death of his friends, Remus decides to break out of the pattern of his post-war life and try living among Muggles. In a sleepy town in southern England and the bustling city of London, he tries to build a new life for himself, piece by piece. The more he sees of the Muggle world, the more Remus wonders if that structure is as stable as he would like to think it is.

    “The Survivor” is set in Thatcherite Britain, in the wake of the Falklands War and the onset of the British AIDS epidemic. It explores themes of disease, stigma, war trauma and grief, reflecting both on the historical context of the 1980s and Rowling’s characterisation of Remus Lupin.

    Summary

    “Did you love him?” she asked, and it took him a moment to remember that she was an adult now, and old enough to have the truth explained to her properly.
    “I never knew him long enough to love him, but I think that I could have, if ever we’d stayed in touch. I think, in a lot of ways, that was why I never did.”

    Summary

    Dirk Strider was always used to having his life planned out for him, and he was perfectly comfortable with it. He'd make it through his last year of high school, get a football scholarship, and move as far away from his older brother as he could. Just as he was coming to terms with the fact that he would be living out a pre-written life, he comes across Jake English. He was an adventurous brunette with eyes like emeralds and a smile like the sun, who would certainly not be living a pre-written life.
    Throughout the course of one school year, Dirk's world is flipped completely upside down, and he finds all of his morals being completely rewritten. He can't decide which is scarier, the fact that Jake is doing this to him, or the fact that he might want him to.

    Summary

    Pete is Chicago. He's Chicago in the way that concrete and rebar hold his bones together, the people walking down the street are his blood and soul, and he smokes like the industrial smokestacks that gave him life. His city is the back of his hand, or at least a few blocks are the back of his hand. Probably.

    Pete is a city, filled with life and potential and history. He wants to know about the nymphs that live in the woods and the lakes and rocks around him. They don't want to know about him.

    Summary

    The year is 1981, and Iron Bull sits in an empty bar telling Lavellan, Leliana and Sera all about the 1970s - specifically his time near the Tevinter border, in a bustling border town called Trevis. He likes to embellish slightly. He also likes to see them squirm when he gets to the filthy parts - though Sera mostly just laughs.

    It's a story of three things: One, how the chargers came together before becoming most imposing collegiate sports teams in Thedas. Two, what it was like for Bull to be out on his own a queer kid in the 70s. Third, how he met Krem, and the long road that led them there.

    Summary

    Herbert West, MD, is a scientist with only one burning goal: to cure death. Brilliant but disturbed, disgraced in the medical community, his experiments into the nature of re-animation have already cost himself and his assistant Dan Cain almost everything on more than one occasion.
    When a mysterious stranger claiming to be a vampire shows up and offers the key to life eternal on the Devil's Road, West descends into a dark world of passion and possibilities beyond anything he ever imagined. And everywhere he turns, there's a trade-off.
    The Night Island is a dangerous place... and the new, genius mortal won't precisely be living there, if Lestat has his way.

    Summary

    News Clipping; Chicago Times, May 6, 1984

     

    "Following the disappearances of these three stars, the music industry is damaged forever. They will be presumed dead until proven otherwise. The Chicago Music Wax Museum received memorial statues from an unknown artist to be displayed this Saturday..."

     

     

    Okay, Pete didn't mean for this to happen. All he did was try and look at the amulet the wax statue was wearing because it looked like his, and now he has to take care of an 80s jazz star who's been missing, presumed dead, for 32 years, doesn't understand texting and thinks 2009 Toyota Corollas are the best thing since sliced bread.

    But when he and his friends look further, they find out it's not just one person. There's a conspiracy that's been right under their noses the whole time, and now they need to find out who's behind it...(cliche)

    News Clipping; Chicago Times, April 10, 2016

    "Breaking news, music lovers...only ten days before the anniversary of his disappearance, the Patrick Stump statue at the Chicago Music Wax Museum has disappeared..."
