    Summary

    When Newt was 15 years old, Leta returns from summer break with an engagement ring on her finger. “Abraxas Malfoy,” she tells him in a strange, hollow voice. Then she smiles, and he shivers at the emptiness behind her eyes, the lingering traces of bruises around her delicate mouth. “Father insisted.”

    Summary

    For as long as I can remember, the threat of storms has loomed over my head. The notion that everything you love and hold dear could be blown away in one night, sucked up and tossed about by a swirling funnel of destruction, is familiar to me.

     

    Occupational hazard of living in Oklahoma, I suppose.

    Summary

    It’s a weird realisation when the thought comes to you that life continues outside of the story. That after your own personal fairytale finishes, your life continues. After the love story, after the wedding bells, it keeps going. Beyond your wedding night, beyond the kids, beyond the divorce. It never stops. Not until death do us part– if your life is the romance novel. Viktor’s life is not a romance novel. It’s not the love cliche he thought it once was.

    Summary

    Phil doesn't know what he wants to do with his life. He knows that he doesn't want to be where he is right now, but beyond that, he's lost. His whole world is falling apart around him and then, through the rubble and falling raindrops, he sees the tall brown-haired boy with a cigarette between his lips, lies, promises, hopes and dreams on his tongue, all overlain by alcohol and a never-ended dulled sadness. Phil puts his heart into the broken boy's hands and begs him not to break it.

    (In which Dan and Phil fall in love under the stars with raindrops cascading over their thin bodies.)

    Summary

    Summary

    He watches her from the corner of his over-bright eyes, and she tips their foreheads together until he has the strength to go on. “Love has a way of making it’s own rules, I suppose,” he finally decides, and voices a watery laugh.

    Summary

    Newt’s a few hundred feet ahead of her, and even from this distance she can see that the harsh desert sun is already reddening his cheeks and nose. He, too, has shed layers, until he wears only his beige field breeches and simple cotton shirtsleeves, rolled to the elbow. Tina envies him his ability to strip, stuck with her itchy girdle and stockings and sticky-damp step-ins—even if her skirt is light satin and her blouse an even lighter linen. The heat is punishing.

    Summary

    Then, to his dismay, Bedelia laughed. It was an unsettling sound, a cymbal crash. It was mirthless graveyard laughter.

    “If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Hannibal Lecter, it’s that he will survive. And, if he is to survive, he will be sure you do, too.” The laughter at the edges of her words had faded, but he could still feel the ripples of it. “You need a plan. He will certainly have one.”

    ******
    Hannibal and Will survived the fall, with a little help. Can they now survive each other? Can they survive the ones hunting them?

    Half flashback to immediately after the fall; half story line involving slightly more established Hannigram.
