  3. Summary

    And when one of them meets with his other half, the actual half of himself ... the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy, and would not be out of the other's sight, as I may say, even for a moment: these are the people who pass their whole lives together... - Aristophanes, in Plato's Symposium

    Summary

    “Hello sweetie,” she purrs. “Expecting me?”

    The Seer eyes her calmly, apparently unruffled. “Hours ago.” He tsks at her like she’s nothing more than an unruly child, the burden of ages gone from his eyes as though it had never been. “You’re late.”

    Summary

    Like thousands of characters every year, Random Idea #42 dreams of one day starring as the protagonist in a NaNoWriMo novel of her very own. It's not easy when you don't even have a name yet, but she's determined to try.

    But when November looms and a friend helps her land a role, she gets thrown into more than she bargained for. Forced to team up with a surly inter-novel investigator, she ends up thrust into a dark plot involving the Travelling Shovel of Death, and discovers the fate of the novels that never made it to 50k...

    We'll probably never find out where free shrimp dinners come from, though.

    (Starring: a full cast of scientists, detectives, zombies, ninjas, pirates, robots, awful romance novel protagonists, trebuchets, malicious gardening implements, people with significantly anagrammed names, flying pets, wordcount validators, dares, and at least one oversharing talk show host.)

    Summary

    'You're a wizard, Harry' is easier to hear from a half-giant when you're eleven, rather than from some kids on a tube platform when you're seventeen and late for work.

    Summary

    Dean holds Cas’ hand in his own, rubbing his thumb against his still-warm knuckles, back and forth, back and forth.

    “You promised,” he says, voice hoarse, barely above a whisper. “You promised.”

    Summary

    When Harry was eleven years old, his Hogwarts letter came by owl. He'd been accidentally blowing windows open and lighting cauliflower on fire for years. James took Harry to go get his wand at Ollivanders, and Lily took Dudley to the Owl Emporium where he tried to convince her they should build an aviary in the backyard. They came home with a fat black cat who hissed at everyone. Dudley named him Spooks, and Lily called him Monster.

    "Did you have to?" said James. "That is the meanest beast I've ever met, and I've known Remus unmedicated on full moons and a pubescent Sirius thwarted in love."

    Lily, who had ink on her cheek and a ballpoint pen stuck behind her ear, waved vaguely at the living room without looking up from her arrest report. Dudley was asleep in an armchair. The cat sprawled across his lap. Both its front paws were wrapped around Dudley's arm as it cleaned his wrist with aggressive fondness.

    "Alright," said James. "Yeah, you had to."
