    Summary

    Mycroft and Anthea have an unspoken code.
    "Some days, she notices little quirks about him, like that he's unconsciously switched to using his left hand, or that he blinks more than normal. Some days, she thinks the pressure might break him, and so she stays particularly close to him that day, coming up with ridiculous excuses to be close to him. Some days he doesn't notice her, and some days he does. The good days are the ones where he does."
    Mythea short stories. Includes texting, fluff, tea, and umbrellas.

    Summary

    Kaikki Alfat tietävät, että suhde Betan kanssa voi olla... monimutkainen. Vähintään. Mutta eikö silti rakkauden pitäisi riittää pitämään ihmiset yhdessä ja suhde vakaana?

Kun sitten eräänä viikonloppuna kaikki alkaa mennä pieleen ja kauan tiedossa ollut katastrofi saa alkunsa, alkavat epäilykset nousta. Kannattaako enää edes yrittää jos koko universumi on heitä vastaan? Pystyykö kumpikaan elämään ilman toista, vaikka olisi aivan pakko? Entä jos edes rakkaus ei tällä kertaa riitä?

    //Esiin revityn totuuden Bonusluku, jossa seurataan Proton ja Retriksen suhteen käännekohtaa.

    Summary

    Abbey misses her family, she talks about how it was back in her village. But what if her family is broken and the closest people she has for family now are human?

    She wasn't always called Abbey, the human only called her that because he thought he was clever. She never used to care about fashion, because she lived on the top of a mountain where humans attacked her people and all there was to wear was armor. If everything had gone according to plan, she would have killed the human that is now her closest friend and become part of the tribe. Instead she wears uncomfortable clothes in an effort to find herself, and she wears makeup to hide the scars.

    At Monster High, she never told her friends her family is now the humans she swore to kill. They don't know the horrible things she had to do after she failed to kill the human, and that for almost a year, her mouth was sewn shut because her lost tribe couldn't bring themselves to kill her.

    This is Abbey's story, the story detailing how she went from the runt of a yeti tribe to an exchange student at Monster High.

    Summary

    Mr Welch, did you ever hear of a woman in white? Or sometimes weeping woman? It's a ghost story. Well, it's more of a phenomenon really. Um, they're spirits. They've been sighted for hundreds of years, dozens of places, in Hawaii, Mexico, lately in Arizona, Indiana. All these are different women, but all share the same story. See, when they were alive, their husbands were unfaithful to them. And these women, basically suffering from temporary insanity, murdered their children. Then once they realized what they had done, they took their own lives. So now their spirits are cursed, walking back roads, waterways. And if they find an unfaithful man, they kill him. And that man is never seen again.
