    Summary

    The sky has always watched over Rudy Steiner. It has always shouted when it needed too and he has always heard it. But it was not enough, it will never be enough, and now all that is left is Liesel, with her painful tears and her useless words and her dangerous, empty brown eyes.

    Summary

    There was a flash of colour and a chorus of terror, and Rudy Steiner was thrown like a ragdoll. He slumped in the dust and the remnants and the remains, and his face was an ice cube of tragedy.
    That was the end of Rudy Steiner’s short life.

    Summary

    November 1955. After months of deliberation and planning, it’s finally happening: they’re travelling to the State of Israel.

    An examination of the question, “What if Max went to give testimony in Jerusalem, shortly after the Yad Vashem law was passed in 1953?” told from Liesel’s point of view, this is a series that deals with their travels until their final destination in Jerusalem. Every other chapter is a flashback, so if you’re not partial to the idea of Max and Liesel getting married sometime after the war (which I completely understand), feel free to read every second chapter, as they start immediately after “They hugged and cried and fell to the floor."

    Summary

    The story of the many times Death visited Daryl Dixon, before and after he became an archer, before and after the light blue eyes, before and after Death was so, so tired, his arms so, so heavy with souls.

    It is a small story about, among other things; an archer, colors, leftovers and quite a lot of endings.
