    Summary

    When they said that flames lick, that kisses consume, or that touches burn, all these, David had thought, were only metaphors. Certainly flames have no mouths; when Luke withdrew from David his mouth would still be there; and where their hands, then their arms, then their torsos touched, and their knees tangled, David still had skin, not crisped or burnt or even reddened. Still, there was something important about this metaphor, something powerful and insightful about the connection between flame and Luke - between fire and love.

    Summary

    "I could manage a fire for you," said Luke. "Would you like it if that block with thirty-four windows were to catch fire?"

    "That would be brilliant," David said, laughing. "I just wish you could manage it."

    "All right," Luke said quietly.

    Summary

    Loki wanders between universes, generally without purpose, and he's discovered a curiosity: no matter where he goes, no matter what plane he lands on, there's always somebody who is almost just like him.

    Or, in which Loki meets various versions of himself, each as unexpected as the next, and eventually discovers that there is a purpose to his wanderings after all.

    Or, again, in which Lucifer, former owner of a piano bar, ponders the issues of self-identity and generally is displeased with the state of the multiverse, particularly where germane to the question of free will.

    Summary

    Astrid thinks Luke really needs to get a new sense of humour. "Fending off all those women probably did his reflexes good, but David's too down to earth to like the attention from the newspaper people."
