    Summary

    "Three shards of pottery, and a deep, thick shroud, are required on occasions such as these. To conceal the eyes, the mouth, the mirror." ⸻

    The brightest generation of the V.F.D. were born under decaying stars; the previous generation had made this organization noble, but the secret of that nobility was lost in translation. Born amid a fire, a power outage, and a dark storm, three young volunteers have always had one foot out the door, but these coming years will make them question whether the organization was ever good to begin with, whether their friends and associates could ever have been trusted, and whether the desperation not to be alone or the desperation to serve "the better good" is greater.

    (A complex pre-ASOUE look into V.F.D., some headcanons about events of the time period, and a mess of unhealthy relationships I do not condone or believe should be aspired to.)

    Summary

    “You’re the second most trustworthy person I know,” I said. I was smiling as I said it. It wasn’t an answer, not really, but I didn’t think she really meant the question. Did we trust each other? At almost fifteen, we’d proven it enough times for me to take it for granted.

    “Thanks,” Beatrice said, rolling her eyes.

    Summary

    Moxie hasn't seen Lemony Snicket in years, when the news suddenly breaks of his 'death'. And that seems to be that; until he turns up suddenly in her home, insisting she tell nobody about his presence. Needless to say, Moxie isn't pleased. Not one bit.

    Summary

    I am tired of tears and laughter,

    Of what may come hereafter
    ...
    And everything but sleep.

    Summary

    A missing fragment of an intricate plot. A shard in the eye of good and evil. Is moral relativism relative? Are we stranded at large between the devil and the deep blue sea?

    Of how M. came to meet Ellington Feint, in one decayed Stain'd-by-the-Sea.

    There was a girl, and there was a town, and there was a woman. There were footsteps on the beach, and unforgiving wind on the cliff. There were wanderers who wondered where all the birds had gone, and why all the world was red. There were broken, enigmatic hearts and shaken ones.
    This is an eerie encounter, this is a hopeless quest. But what does it matter, as long as we passed the gates singing?

    Summary

    Once, a sprawling organization chose to imprint children's skin with a mark that could mean anything. Once, two kids were tattooed into the heart of a Schism, and they were the very last ones. The Last of the Inked. So they ran to go where the world was quiet, but the world frowned to them, and eventually they had to see for themselves what that noise was.

    If there is nothing out there, we might as well write way too definite letters to each other, right?
