    Summary

    Cassie and Rob are so close, she feels like she knows him inside out. But there is something hidden deep down, something he rarely even glances at himself. One drunk night, deep into the suffocating vortex of Operation Vestal, it surfaces.

    Summary

    "That was when I felt it: that needle-fine vibration, starting in my temples and moving down the bones into my eardrums. Some detectives feel it in the backs of their necks, some get it in the hair on their arms—I know one poor sap who gets it in the bladder, which can be inconvenient—but all the good ones feel it somewhere. It gets me in the skull bones. Call it what you want—social deviance, psychological disturbance, the animal within, evil if you believe in that: it’s the thing we spend our lives chasing. All the training in the world won’t give you that warning when it comes close. You get it or you don’t. I took a quick look at Richie: grimacing and licking his lips, like an animal that’s tasted something putrid. He got it in his mouth, which he would need to learn to hide, but at least he got it." -- Mick "Scorcher" Kennedy, Broken Harbour

    Summary

    “Your dream partner grows in the back of your mind, secret, like your dream girl. Mine grew up with violin lessons, floor-to-high-ceiling books, red setters, a confidence he took for granted and a dry sense of humor no one but me would get. Mine was everything that wasn’t Conway, and I would’ve bet hers was everything that wasn’t me. But the click was there. Maybe, just for a few days, we could be good enough for each other." – Stephen Moran, The Secret Place

    Summary

    "These were the things that passed between them unspoken. He didn’t have to tell her to come to him for a talk; she would simply come by herself."

    A tribute to the emotional closeness between Daniel and Abby. Flickering back and forth between platonic and romantic love, or possibly what these two have is somewhere beyond. Set during the strange, confusing time when they thought Lexie had returned to them.

    Summary

    I didn’t have anything left to hang onto, and, in what felt like an emptiness so vast it was obscene, all I saw was my best friend. The idiot who worried too much and occasionally made me waltz when no one else would. The reason I stayed.

     

    On Justin and Rafe’s last night together, Rafe goes back to their first.

    Summary

    It’s Christmas Eve and Justin is back in Dublin, coming out to his family having gone horribly wrong. He won’t call the others, they’d have figured it out all too quick. Instead, he has every intention of spending the night heartbroken and alone. But, like most of Justin’s plans- that isn’t what happened.

    Summary

    As much as I could envelop myself in Lexie during the day, sleep irrevocably and fatally brought back the real me. I could walk and talk and play and laugh and debate and do everything as Lexie had; but I could only dream as myself.

    ...

    I always thought that the scary thing about my usual nightmares was the fact that they might be foreshadowing events of the future. What I underestimated – what I have always underestimated – was the inescapable, breathtaking, inevitable pull of the past.

    Summary

    I dropped the candle. It was all I could do to keep myself from screaming. There, standing in the centre of our bedraggled garden, Daniel March stood looking up at me, his eyes hard and unblinking in the cold. I wanted to duck. I wanted to disappear. The molten wax had splattered over my ankles, a sharp, biting sensation that died almost as soon as it began. I could hear my own breathing, ragged and halting, and it frightened me more than any silence ever would.

    Summary

    I often think of my time in the house as a collision of extremes, all black and all white, nothing in halves. We had those midnights, that darkness, where everything we said and did happened in an instant and spiralled into a thousand lives, like all the books we ever read. The mornings when it was just us, the kettle, and Daniel smiling and quoting Faust while he passed around eggs and toast. And sometimes, in the split second when I blinked between, I could feel the whole world slide from one to the other. And I never knew which was which.

    Summary

    As we all know, Rob's night with Cassie had more consequences than Rob ever knew.

    This story is about Cassie's ferry ride to England and back. About the wall that separated her from everyone else. And about the time Sam broke through that wall, took her home and made her stew.

    Tana covered it all in a few paragraphs. I wanted a bit more.

    Summary

    We were hardly soulmates, Frank and I, but I did (and still do) feel a tie to him that I can’t ignore.

    That tie placed me in Whitethorn House, as much as Lexie’s echoing call.
