    Summary

    Cast out of Syrup Village and abandoned by his crew, the former Black Cats pirate captain finds himself living the life of a nomad, wandering from place to place in an attempt to make ends meat. Thus, he promised himself to record his endeavors in an attempt to better plot against others, though he may quickly come to regret that decision.

    Captain Kuro is a brilliant man, and has taken to recording his travels in a rather plain-looking journal. While dull on the outside, the inside is far more colorful than he'd ever intended it to be.

    Summary

    ¿Por qué sigue viva Kate, si en teoría Peter la mató? ¿Por qué ha tardado más de un año en volver a Beacon Hills? ¿Dónde ha estado todo ese tiempo? ¿Y en qué se ha convertido exactamente?
    Pero casi más importante: ¿Por qué soñó Derek con Stiles, cuando Kate le disparó? ¿Y por qué Derek era el rey en el tablero de ajedrez de Stiles?

    Un montón de preguntas que serán resueltas, tal vez, en la próxima temporada. Hasta entonces, esta es mi teoría basada en rumores, algún comentario de Jeff Davis, y mucha pero que mucha imaginación; que probablemente no veremos en la realidad, pero que estaría bien que ocurriera…

    Summary

    Everything about him says easygoing, from the way he undoes his cuffs and tosses the cufflinks to clatter beside the candles to the way he brushes back the fringe of his hair from his forehead. It’s all subterfuge: Trust me, I’m an open book, money is no object. Nick used the same damn tricks when he played the ambassador earlier, only that was all about jive and smooth talking and this is....

    "So, who invited you to this shindig?" Pierce asks.
