    Summary

    Stiles opened his eyes, trying to remember where he was. Blinking slowly, he stretched out his whole body; yawn loud in the vast and pretty empty living room of Derek’s loft. Derek who was by the way standing few feet away, leaning against the table in front of the window.

    “I don’t remember falling asleep here”

    Summary

    Frerin fears that the newest addition to his family is not the blessing the adults around him claim she is. A song of lore convinces him that she might be a danger to them all.

    Or, to put it another way, Frerin has some big brother jealousy and Halldóra accidentally gives him a justification for it - luckily Thrór and Sigdís know where the little guy is coming from. Come on in, it's homey in here!

    Summary

    A keystone species is a species that has a disproportionately large effect on its environment relative to its abundance. Such species are described as playing a critical role in maintaining the structure of an ecological community, affecting many other organisms in an ecosystem and helping to determine the types and numbers of various other species in the community.

    Or: It takes time for the memories to settle into place, to feel like they’re his; the interim is hard.

    Summary

    A story about motherhood when you're a banshee, the little cracks that you don't notice until they already run deep, how you count down the years and hope for the best whilst pushing down your fears all the while loving your children, especially the one who'll bear your burden, more fiercely than anything in this world.

    Belongs to these verses
