    Summary

    I told myself it wasn't my fault if I couldn't ignore those glimpses of skin or the softness of her body when we hugged. It made sense: George was a girl; I was into girls; she was the girl I was always with. Sooner or later my hormones would figure out she was my sister, and then touching her would just give me the same sense of warmth and comfort as it had all our lives.

    Some of my wires got crossed sometimes, that was all. Puberty was weird and confusing, according to everyone ever, and after a while things would settle down.

    That was all it was. It had to be.

    Set about nine years before Feed, when Georgia and Shaun are fourteen.

    Summary

    "Goody," George said, trying not to sound embarrassed. She didn't do a great job of it. "Either I'm unexpectedly hemorrhaging to death, or I'm a woman now." She spat out Option B in the same snarky sing-song she'd used after the time we watched some ancient sex ed. videos for laughs, one of which had featured a serious middle-aged lady droning about the wonders of a girl's blossoming womanhood.

    Before the Rising, getting your first period meant possible messiness, embarrassment, and inconvenience.

    It's worse now.

    (In which Shaun Mason, age thirteen, side-eyes other boys and snuggles his sister, who's having a very rough night/morning.)

    Summary

    During that first visit she told us the bare minimum she could get away with, and by sheer force of will she made things as normal as possible under conditions that involved crashing at a gigantic house inhabited by intelligent creatures that flew in the face of everything I thought I knew about the world. We spent those three days letting Maggie show us her favorite movies, eating the kind of obscenely good food that the ludicrously wealthy can have on hand, and trying not to jump out of our skin every time the Aeslin mice appeared in their brightly-colored scraps of clothing, whether it was to celebrate an esoteric religious rite or to get in on some popcorn action. They were deeply curious, scrupulously polite, and obsessed with cake.

    They'd been fascinated by my eyes, which came to their attention when they noticed that, unlike everyone else, I didn't turn lights on when I went into darkened rooms.

    Summary

    She gave me one of the faint smiles that have been driving me crazy since we were fifteen--well, longer than that, but that was when she noticed and started deploying them deliberately. Neither of us has the first clue how to flirt normally with anyone else, but we know all there is to know about giving each other subtle cues or bait. And the cue I was getting from that smile was that her growing desire had a very particular edge to it.

    I'd already let her know what I wanted. Now I smiled back at her and said, "You want some playtime, huh? I'm game."

    "Okay," she agreed.

    Just like that, I was on her to-do list.

    Summary

    I hop up onto the passenger seat and shut the door, listening to the locks slide home. "I'm Rose."

    "Shaun," he says.

    "Weren't you going the other way?" I ask. "Guess you're in no hurry, seeing as you turned around."

    He shrugs, eyes on the road. "Nowhere in particular I need to be. May as well give someone else a hand. Where you headed?"

    Set between Feed and Deadline.

    This story contains major spoilers for Feed, but none for the rest of the Newsflesh trilogy. It has no spoilers for Sparrow Hill Road.

    Content note: Rose Marshall has been a ghost for nearly a century in this story, and is very much above the age of consent, but be aware that her appearance hasn't changed since she died at age sixteen.

    Summary

    It's not every day one of the best-known east coast Irwins notices anything happening on our side of the continent, never mind devotes a full thirty seconds to it in their daily highlights show. Robin Fernandez singling Shaun out was almost guaranteed to have a long-term effect on his ratings, if Shaun could keep even a percentage of the new audience that had just been exposed to him.

    I figured Shaun had more than earned some appreciative fangirling.

    Smut set a few years before Feed; no series spoilers.

    Summary

    Nerissa said in her letter: Maybe you're more interested in characters vs. nature, and would like to write some post-canon zombie moose. Come on, zombie moose! Moose are terrifying when they're alive, in rut, and eyeing your car. I can't imagine facing the Canadian Shield region with undead grizzlies and deer ambling around, but Shaun would love it.

    Zombie moose coming right up!

    Summary

    "Given some of the less-pleasant things you've dragged me out of bed for, I'm not gonna complain about you waking me up and begging for sex." I grinned. "Some things are worth losing sleep over."

    The teasing resulted in George tackling me as hard as she could--which wasn't that hard, since I was already on my back. She landed half on top of me with her hands on my biceps, like she could keep me pinned.

    I smiled up at her, knowing she'd take my amusement in stride. Long, hard-won experience said that if she'd been trying to seriously wrestle me she would've planted a knee in my gut, and George's knees and elbows are sharp. I appreciated the restraint, even though the odds were she'd only refrained because knocking the wind out of a guy doesn't tend to do much for the mood.

    And lo, there was smut.

    Summary

    That tone usually meant trouble. My spine went cold with dread, although not cold enough to smother the heat Shaun's touch was conjuring in me. "Shaun, no," I said, hoping to fend off whatever was about to come out of his mouth.

    "What?" he asked, innocence personified.

    Some kinds of dirty talk will get you laid. Other kinds...may not have the desired effect.

    (Or "In which Shaun thinks he's funny and Georgia disagrees.")

    Summary

    George is no more immortal than I am, and she probably figured that out even younger than I did. The pair of us hit puberty fully aware we were gonna die someday, and confused as all hell by the way people around us acted like they could live forever if they just played it safe enough. But then again, there was no way we could've hung onto that ignorance ourselves. Being raised by people who got lost in grief over their dead six-year-old and never found themselves enough to love you strips away all of your innocence sooner rather than later.

    Phillip died young. People died all the time. One of those days, death was going to come for us, too--probably literally, since we live in a world where it's up and walking around.

    It took longer to grasp that we might not die together.

    Summary

    George and I both knew something had gone wrong with us; that was obvious, since what we felt for each other was so far outside the norm that the norm was barely a speck in the distance. What I couldn't see was how it would've been any different if we were blood siblings. If we were really twins, the way we frequently let people assume we are, how could that possibly make it feel less like she's part of me?

    Set seven years before Feed.

    This story stands on its own, but it's set some weeks after "We Dreamed a Garden" (Georgia's POV, in which she and Shaun experiment by going to junior prom with other people, don't like it much, admit their feelings for each other, and spend half the night fooling around about as thoroughly as you can without getting naked).
