    Summary

    Somehow she always forgot how much brighter and closer the stars were out in the desert, whenever she travelled elsewhere. When dusk fell and the moon rose, looking close enough to walk right up to, her heart gave a warm little twist of homecoming - home wasn’t a place, it was something she carried in herself, wherever she planted her feet, but these shifting sands were the steadiest place she knew.

    The engine in her battered truck had broken down yet again, but Miz Eliza considered that a problem for later. For now she sat on the cooling roof and mapped stories into the lights and spaces in the sky.

    Summary

    Francis Uyeda walked through the Academy’s hated gates when he was eighteen, because there was something here worth saving from itself. His mother’s face had been stern and calm on the dockside, and when she kissed his forehead and wished him luck he could see her folding in and in on herself. One of the younger kids had been crying. One of his sisters had stubbornly refused to speak to him since he sent off the forms, and another had done the same once his acceptance had come back. His brother had made him promise to say hi to the Rangers.

    He had lived most of his life on a ship, and now the ground lay still beneath his feet. He braced himself against it and stumbled when he adjusted his balance thoughtlessly for a shift that wasn’t coming. The ground was still, stable, and he felt off balance for weeks.

    Summary

    The threads looked as though they would slip away from George’s fingers at any moment. They hadn’t used to; once upon a time they had coiled around her left fingertips to merge with the creases of her palms, just like - so far as she’d heard - everybody else’s.

    Summary

    For some reason, the disgusting, battered couch Leaf insisted on keeping is occupied more often than it is not. Red is quietly horrified and has fond dreams of lopping the thing up for probably toxic firewood. Leaf looks at him like he just kicked a puppy whenever he suggests it. It’s a practiced look, and Red is almost certain his boyfriend is messing with him, but he doesn’t destroy the sofa anyway.

    Summary

    Jack wasn’t the first to think that Leaf’s armband was as green as his name only because of where he was from, not who he was. Most of the stable-loft crew had assumed he was a wannabe combat spec, and once or twice he’d been mistaken for a denied hero (he’d laughed so hard he fell off a chair when Gloria told him she’d thought for a while he’d wanted the purple badge, to be leading the charge; he fell into directing people so easily when the battle for Driftwood island came, she’d said, and he grinned and asked her if she’d like to go tell Nurse to her face that healers weren’t allowed to give instructions like they were supposed to be followed)

    Summary

    When Rupert Hammersfield the Seventh was declared missing, presumed dead, Rhones stepped quietly into his role as general support to the headmaster, who had gone grey and grim with grief. The piles of extra paperwork on his desk were not welcome, but Rhones was used to gritting his teeth and getting on with the job that needed doing - hard rides through heavy rain to answer summons, striding into a nest of Things, shaking the hands of young heroes when they graduated and set out on their first League duty, knowing some of them would never come home again.

    - A character piece for Rhones, ft. Tessa "Terence" Farris.

    Summary

    The desert came into view slowly - she walked the last day, feet still aching, though less than they had when she first set out, blisters grown slowly to callus. Her first sight of the true desert expanse was a shimmer of gold on the horizon. When she was far enough along the road to be surrounded by lone dunes she paused. Cass had always seen the world in shifting swirls of gold, and here so did everyone else. She scooped sand up, surprised that under the scorching surface the grains were cool to the touch. She let it trickle softly through her fingers and drift in the wind. If she were a more fanciful person she might have thought it was a golden trail leading her somewhere new.

    Summary

    Leagues and Legends AU: Leaf drags Jack along to a tiny martial arts club known as 'the Academy' in an attempt not to get beaten up so much, meets Red, and promptly falls head over heels - and not just because it's Red's job to teach him to take a fall.

    Summary

    Bidi Jones grew up knowing that people will walk through your door, once, and walk back out never to return, all in the space of a day. She didn't remember most of them, faces blurring together. But she had an old crayon scribble of herself wreathed in gold pinned to her wall until the bakery went up in smoke. She remembered a child telling her shyly it was pretty, sparkly, that it looked a little like scales dusted over her skin - she remembered that because she was already half in love with dragons, and it had made her grin.

    Summary

    At about the time I wrote my Red piece, I started this one for our other lovable, unusually-named, show-stealing side character, and it took a lot longer to finish..minor spoilers for Beanstalk, none for Echoes.

    "Grey was on the floor, breathing shallowly, making the kind of noise only a bad Elsewhere storm or the sight of a damaged book could bring out of him." —Echoes of a Giantkiller

    Summary

    Rupert Willington Jons Hammersfeld VII was prepared for most anything. He had lists, schedules, procedures. He doled himself out to save people; he split himself so far he forgot to save parts of him for himself. He defended others, mothered, saved the world one granola bar- one orderly form- at a time. He knew how to walk the world, knew how to achieve his ends through various means. He was a hero, as inevitably as he was a walking star. He crafted himself, his networks, his companions; he crafted his morals through the blood he shed for others. He was silent at the signs of the world’s injustices, and worked quietly to set them right, to erase them. He saved mages with a magic of his own; he faced down outcomes he could not have forseen.
