    Summary

    Hojo stepped back, a wide, thoughtless stride.

    He was stunned, taken by his own actions. Physical confrontation was beneath him. He had only ever struck one other; the boy's father.

    Perhaps that is why he hit him, because the boy's question was as valid as it was hurtful, as ugly as it was fair. Perhaps it was because he had looked like his father when he asked it, so sullen and hopeless and weak.

    Remorse flood him as the boy held his small hands to his small cheek, wore a small look of wounded betrayal. Hojo almost knelt, took him in his arms, embraced him in apology for all the things he could not know. Instead, he shoved a gnarled finger between the boy's unnaturally glowing green eyes.

    "What are you, a child?!"

    The boy blinked. He could have killed Hojo if he wanted to, they both knew. Crushed his throat, squeezed the life from him with his small fingers. But a child he was, a little boy. As loyal and eager to please as his father had been. "No, Professor."

    Hojo straightened. "You are nothing of the sort. You are no stupid, silly child. You have no business asking stupid, silly questions. You are Sephiroth. And you will never ask me that again."

    Summary

    “...There is nothing else in magic but the wild thought of the bird as it casts itself into the void. There is no creature upon the earth with such potential for magic.”

    The youngest Miss Erquistoune travels from Edinburgh to London to stay with her favorite cousin—Jonathan Strange. But Georgiana is very different from her sisters, in more ways than one; and her reasons for wanting to be close to the Greatest Magicians of the Age may be more complicated than they first appear. Her predilection for fire catches Childermass's attention, as his for shadows catches hers. Together, they try to find their way in the world, even as English magic threatens to change it forever.

    “You can play, Bell,” Octavia offered, somewhat hesitantly. “I remember that garage band you used to have with Murphy. You were good.”

    Summary

    “Strip.”

    The word was a soft growl that caressed Ignis’s ear but rocked him to his very core.

    This was not the first time that Gladiolus had commanded the royal advisor to strip, in fact “Strip!” was the first thing he could recall the prince’s sworn shield saying to him. But Gods was this a far cry from that day …

    Summary

    Your name is Áire. 'Mage' in human myth, now known as a vocchron. These days, magic folk are referred to generally as canorals—it doesn't matter if you are a troll, mountain spirit, or dragon, they all understand that physical appearance doesn't mean you aren't connected to each other.
    Humans haven't had any real contact with canorals besides what material they have for ghost stories, which still isn't even hardly ever accurate.
    The monsters under the mountain were erased from memory of all, including those who helped the monsters make the barrier. Any who are still alive from that time have convoluted memories of the event, all of which have been manipulated. Not even the monsters truly remember why they were trapped.
    Well, one day it all blows up when the barrier opens. Quickly, humans become aware of monsters and canorals alike. The very few of those from the creation of the barrier can clearly remember why it was put up in the first place, nor what happened. hopefully that will come with time.
    Oh, but you were there alright. And you've got some massive headaches, along with a skeleton who has a befuddling curiosity about you.
    (Summaries are hard to write when you have no set plot plan. Haha)
