    Summary

    and sometimes i feel
    like an inland ocean,
    too big to be a lake,
    too small to be an attraction,
    and when you wander in
    and start to flail a bit
    i let it happen.

    When even the Grim Reaper can kick the bucket, and even something so permanent is temporary, what the fuck is the point? Taako's forced to grapple with questions like these way too suddenly, with almost no warning, and this is the aftermath. This is the hole Kravitz leaves in his world, and the attempts of the people around him to honor it.

    The grieving are sometimes so hard to love.

    Loving Taako's never been easy, anyway.

    (Inspired by "drifting" by qanterqueen -- go read it if you can! Title from "Smoking Section" by St. Vincent.)

    Summary

    Sometimes it makes sense: he hears a song that Sazed used to sing while he cleaned the stagecoach and it makes Taako feel like he’s back there, flouncing about after a show, letting Sazed do all of the heavy lifting. Other times it seems like he’s set off by nothing at all, just living, existing, when suddenly he feels the past like a punch to the gut.

    Summary

    “No, it’s a real great idea and all that, babe,” Lup says, cutting herself a forkful of what looks vaguely like eggs benedict. “But it’s not gonna work. I don’t have a soul.”
    “What?” Barry asks, looking sharply up. His eyes meet hers. She smiles.
    “Elves don’t have souls, honeybunch. C’mon, everybody knows that.”

    Summary

    “I am Lup, your new Master, and you may address me as so.”
    “A good evening to you, Little Master. You may call me Kravitz. I have many titles, though I also harbour a feeling that you do not care to hear them.”
    Lup released Kravitz’s hand, immediately shoving her own hand deep inside her pocket. She stared at him sourly. “Do not call me Little Master.”
    “Then grow taller.” Kravitz replied.

    Lup and her contracted demon have one goal: to find Lup's brother, wherever he is.
    It's not going so well.

    Summary

    After the fight with Sazed, Taako had woken up in a hospital with his sister staring at him worriedly, moving her lips in the shape of his name, but all he could hear was some muddled, hodge-podge of meaningless noise. After telling Lup that he couldn’t hear her – Hatchi matchi, was it disorienting to speak without being about to hear yourself – she frantically summoned a healer into the room. And so, Taako the greatest chef in the world realized that he was permanently deaf for all intents and purposes.

     

    Finally having had enough, Taako breaks things off with Sazed. Unfortunately, Taako interrupts Sazed trying to get revenge by poisoning his customers. The ensuing fight leaves Taako deaf, which he really doesn't mind much at all. More importantly it leaves him petrified of kitchens, forcing him to leave his restaurant behind and move back in with his twin and brother-in-law.

    With his life in tatters and his vengeful ex still on the loose, Taako turns to the help of the private detective agency The Bureau of Benevolence. Can a boy detective and a tall, dark, and handsome bounty hunter really help turn things around?
