    Summary

    'The thing about depression and falling in love is that, no matter what shitty Hollywood films tell you, one doesn’t cancel the other out. They are two different beasts that consume altogether different food and therefore, somehow have learned to live within Dan’s chest in harmony.'

    A story spanning the length of one October, where Dan and Phil take a trip to Dan's old family home. There Dan is forced to confront the demons of his past in the form of depression, and a child dressed as a ghost in pale white sheets. Phil is left trying to fit together pieces of a very confusing puzzle

    Summary

    Leave.
    Hasn't he heard that word before?
    But never, Izaya reflects as the blade glides over his wrist like a twisted sonnet, in that tired tone of voice. So maybe Shizuo really meant it this time. Maybe he really will leave.
    After all, why not?

    Summary

    They make mountains upon the beach from sand and pebbles, because all Eärendil’s memories are of cold and pale walls of stone and walking for ever and ever.

    When Elwing thinks of home it is dark forests and damp loam beneath her feet and running and stopping and hiding and running again, like rabbits.

    Summary

    Remember that "Put your music on shuffle and write to the first ten songs that come on, but only for as long as that play." thing from years ago? Well, it's actually a great writing exercise for me, so I brought it back.

    From Mark Hoppus' perspective.

    Fun right?

    Summary

    Kenny had died again. This wasn't abnormal to him, and no one ever seemed to remember that he died. He was used to waking up in his bed and seeing his friends the next day as if nothing had happened to end his life the day prior. Things continued as if he had just went to bed like everyone else. He was okay with this.

    But after 8 years of deaths that held no weight or consequence, Kenny wakes up in a world where people seem to have forgotten him entirely.

    Summary

    Giddean Danu shook his head, doubt plainly written across his dark face. “If we are to openly oppose the Chancellor, we need the support of the Jedi. We need their moral authority. Otherwise, what do we have?”

    “The moral authority of the Jedi, such as it is,” Bana Breemu said, “has been spent lavishly upon war; I fear they have none left for politics.”

    “One Jedi, then,” Padmé offered to the others. At least let me speak the truth to my love. At least. Please, she pleaded with them silently. “There is one Jedi—one whom I truly know all of us can trust absolutely …”

    Her voice trailed off into appalled silence when she realized that she wasn’t talking about Anakin.
