    Summary

    It all starts with a note.

    Well, that's not technically accurate. For his team of detectives, it starts with a trio of burning wagons on a lonely stretch of road just outside Phandalin, dying flames flickering dully as dawn breaks over a new day. For the world, it will start with the news of the disappearance of the Phoenix Fire Gauntlet, an ancient relic stolen from the wreckage before all traces of the culprit burned away.

    But for Kravitz, it starts with a note.

    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?

    Summary

    Kravitz doesn't know how to express how much he loves Taako--not because he's scared to do it, but because it's a feeling that goes beyond words. Taako knows what to say anyway.

    Summary

    In this version of Taako-is-Angus'-parent-because-reasons, the parenting happens more or less from birth. Because Luume'irma is a thing and it does drastically reduce any normal selection criteria to alive and willing.

    Summary

    There were many changes Lucretia couldn’t avoid. She knows this. But there were some that she could’ve. And those are the changes that haunt her.

    -

    We all know how careful Lucretia tried to be in the redaction. She didn't want to fundamentally change her friends if she could avoid it, wanted to leave as much in tact as she could. But sometimes one or two words, just a little insignificant detail, ends up causing a change that serves as a glaring reminder of what she did. And what she could've avoided.

    Summary

    They hadn’t spoken in years. And Kravitz had kind of wanted to for a while. Pretty much forever. But it was too late at this point, right?

    Even with Barry being Kravitz’s best friend, and Barry dating Taako’s sister for over a decade… they just didn’t hang out together. Not like they had in high school.

    It wasn’t a Thing.

    Summary

    Everything was better with Lup. Fighting was easier, sleeping was deeper, food tasted better (although that was a given with either of the twins near). Even dying was better with Lup.
    He hadn’t fully appreciated how much better it was, dying with Lup. He thought he was appreciating it, but really, how could he have known how much harder it was to die and live and die and live without her.

    Summary

    "Do you ever have memory problems?"

    Your brother-in-law nods. Almost emphatically. His mouth is pressed into a tight line.

    "Yeah. A lot, actually." He cracks the cap off a bottle of cider for you. Then he opens his own beer. You're sitting on the back porch of his house and watching the sun set over the woods. Your sister is off collecting wayward souls but should be home for dessert.

    There's a long, quiet moment during which you both take a drink. Then you ask, "Do you ever forget about Lup?"

    Summary

    It’s hard to wake up from a dreary routine, but when Lup’s job fell out from under her, she was electrified with an idea. Something that was worthwhile, something that felt real.

    The only tricky part was finding people willing to show off everything that made them “weird”, out in the open, vulnerable to criticism.

    But if she could do it, by God, she’d have the show of the century.

    Summary

    Aubrey really likes Dani. But apparently she just can't have some peace for once, as new obstacles reveal themselves and old ones learn new tricks.

    Summary

    It seemed like an ordinary Reaper call, so why was Barry's world crashing in on him now? It had started out so simple, so why was Kravitz watching everything he'd built up slip through his fingers like grains of sand through an hourglass.

    When a necromancer threatens everything these two men hold dear, they'll have to work together to have any chance of survival.

    Summary

    Taako was the complete package. Beautiful, witty, cultured, and surprisingly smart. He was no stranger to being the object of affection to men, women, and anyone in between. But shallow relationship after shallow relationship left him feeling unappreciated and disenchanted by the entire dating process. So when Kravitz, the man who nearly busted him for sneaking into the science lab months prior, suddenly asked him out, he could have said no. He should have said no.
    Instead, he proposed a challenge. If Kravitz could find 7 things he genuinely liked about who Taako truly was and not just who he appeared to be by Valentine's Day, Kravitz would get the honor of having the Taako Taaco on his arm as his Valentine's date. But this blooming romance could turn out to be more than either of them bargained for.
