    Summary

    After living with Doctor Pellinore Warthrop for almost a year, Will Henry thinks he understands the doctor very well, with the exception being his strange friendship with the enigmatic Dr John Kearns. The man turns up at any hour of the day, more often than not with a macabre specimen in tow and an incorrigible grin. However, an unfortunate choice of words erupts into a violent disagreement between the two men and Dr Kearns leaves, unseen for months. Despite this, something pulls at them that neither can explain and so begins their journey from the quiet suburbia of New Jerusalem to the backwoods of West Virginia, where a parasitic entity exists that drowns people even as they breathe. It is here among the perils of secret deaths and people who all seem to have something desperate to hide that the three of them must confront what lies between them. (Dec 2001-Oct 2002)

    Summary

    The Monstrumologist is a man who works in discovering the parasitic monsters that plague humanity at the turn of the century in 2001, when his loyal assistant and his family are consumed in a fire. Only their son survived and out of a sense of debt for the man's unending loyalty he takes in the eleven year old Will Henry, who had no clue of the nature of the good doctor's work. Thrust into a world that he does not understand, and which is attempting to fit the child in return, Will Henry must learn again what it means to have a family.

    Summary

    After their percussive admission of feelings and fiery affair at the Society Colloquium, Will Henry and Pellinore Warthrop must return home, neither of them sure of what they now mean to each other.

    Pellinore knows how he wants his new life with Will to proceed, but he cannot fathom how to bring it about. He had wanted everything to work itself out on its own, for Will to know implicitly what he wants. But they are soon to discover that making this work will take more than either of them know how to give.

    Summary

    Ten years after a grief stricken and turbulent Pellinore Warthrop fled from Muriel's abandonment, the product of his single night of heartbroken foolishness is brought to his doorstep, wayward and half-orphaned.

    What Annalee Warthrop hoped to find on the other side of the 425 Harrington Lane's front door, so far away from all she knew in New York City, was a father. What she found was Pellinore Warthrop.

    Summary

    [A series of drabbles of the Warthropian family developed from combining Uirukii's fabulous Turn of the Centrury AU (Go and read that) and my own (from The Assistant Apprentice).]

    The house had become, sometime in the last few years, more than the lair for the eccentric Doctor Warthrop. The doctor who had long proclaimed his desire to exist in solitude had collected first Will Henry, then in the dark of night, his own daughter he had not even known he had had. Finally they had been joined in permanence by Dr. Jack Kearns. Together the ragtag family feels love and loss, fortune and tribulation.

    Warning: Here lies gooey familial cuteness and no plot.

    (Drabbles are not in chronological order)

    UPDATE: Chapter 32: Sibling Bonding: In the year that Anna leaves for college, Pellinore become intolerable. By the time they are in New York for the Colloquium Will Henry has been pushed to his limits. Lashing out as only a sixteen year old can he takes inebriated solace in the apartment of his surrogate sister.

    Summary

    Pellinore knew, of course, that Will would not stay a boy forever, that one day he would leave 425 Harrington Lane. But he had not expected him to keep in contact when he did, nor for the young man's burgeoning scientific acumen to so comprehensively change the nature of their relationship. But by the time Will Henry reappears, no longer a youthful apprentice, it is clear that Pellinore sees him altogether differently.
