    Summary

    “We can’t all be as pleasant as hobbits,” Dis said. The hobbit in question tossed her head back, black curls bouncing and glinting in the late afternoon light, and laughed.

    “You’ve met few hobbits then,” she replied, still smiling. “I’ve often thought we’re the most contentious race in all the lands.”

    “You’ve met few dwarves then." Dis was rewarded with more laughter, and then all of a sudden, the hobbit was plopping herself down on the bench beside Dis, fishing out her own pipe.

    Dis meets an unexpected companion as she waits in Rivendell.

    Rita signed up to fight and, yes, maybe even die for her family, her country, or her world, but this is so far beyond the bounds of what she thought would be asked of her.

    Summary

    The world has ended, and floating outside it (speaking, as we always must in such abstract matters, purely metaphorically) was the particular dust of a particular soul. She'd died from fighting this time around. She usually does. This time it was glorious. It's usually not. That's the luck of the draw. The only things guaranteed in every cycle is that you will die, and statistically speaking you’re going to get more than a few duds. She's died tragically more often than she can count. She's also died in her sleep, and that irks her nearly as much. She's died of illness, of wound, of childbirth. She's died of old age, of disappointment, of happiness. Once she died of a combination tiger attack and arsenic poisoning in the middle of a forest fire, which the souls on the other side of life generally agreed was the best death they'd heard of in a while and not likely to ever happen again. Even in an infinite universes, some things are just too bizarre to replicate.

    When next cycle she died of the exact same thing, Sif gave up trying to predict the future. A girl can only put up with being proven wrong so much.

    Summary

    Amy really messed up when she kissed Rosa, and that's a statement with multiple layers of meaning. Good thing Jake's here to make her feel so much dumber. Also maybe to help her work out some feelings. But mostly the first one.

    Summary

    Five hundred years before Thor's coronation, Sif's a lowly page who can't move up in the ranks and Loki's a Royal Academy student trying to survive his last examination. The solution to their problems may lie in the legends they heard as children of the lost Tenth Realm. Now all they have to do is actually find it.

    Summary

    "You told there was an emergency,” Bell said.
    “He told me there was a dinner party,” Ms. Hudson said, bringing out a fresh plate of sugar cookies for the detective.
    “He told me nothing,” Joan said, “and now I’m working on Christmas Eve.”
    “Yes, it’s a Christmas miracle,” Sherlock said. “Watson here was just complaining to me that she had nothing to do tonight.”
     
    Christmas Eve with Sherlock involves exactly as much casework as you would expect. It's a good thing Joan enjoys the work. The fact that Ms. Hudson is there to keep her company doesn't hurt either.

    Summary

    When Jane wakes unexpectedly, the sky’s still dark outside and for the briefest moment, she wonders which planet’s sky she sees. The moment passes—she is on Earth, Midgard, home—but the split second of terror sends a jolt of adrenaline through her that keeps her heart racing and her hands trembling. Sleep’s not going to happen now. Instead, she lies in the dark for a while, grips her own hands, and endures until she can pretend that she feels the surety of Earth speeding through the universe underneath her.

    Summary

    When Moriarty turns fully from the window, as she slinks towards Joan, her face slips into the shadows, her blonde hair turns red in the light of the flames. She’s nothing but what she wants at that moment to be, thinks the part of Joan that always stands back and observes, the part that doesn’t mind the cold dread numbing the rest of her. And the thought comforts her some, just enough to sit up a little straighter. Joan is constant as a rock, after all, and she can’t help but think that if nothing else a rock can bash most things to death.

    Summary

    Hel’s crown, her hollow ring of rusted metal from the breast armor of a long dead hero whose name no one alive remembered except herself and you could hardly say she counted. Her crown did not glint. Her crown did not shine. It dug a bloody wound into her flesh. It scraped a regal groove into her bone. Persephone wore no crown. In the spring, she wove flowers in her hair, and in the winter they clung to her still and rotted. Soon the blossoms shook apart when you touched them, and Hel tangled the stinking petals into Persephone’s long red hair until the flower queen could not move without shedding crinkled death behind her.

    Summary

    Sometimes, when he’s lucky, Schmidt can’t hurt him. It’s like there’s a room inside of Erik’s head that’s he’s usually locked out of, that won’t open no matter if he beats himself bloody against it. On those days, he endures. But sometimes—and Erik doesn’t know why, whether it’s that the stars align or some higher power takes pity or Erik screams loud enough to earn his reward—the door opens. Erik can duck inside and slam it behind him and watches himself through the windows as Schmidt slowly, methodically tortures him to strength.

    These days, this past week, there’s a boy in the room with him and he tells Erik, “That’s horrible,” like that means something.

    Somehow, across the world, Erik's and Charles' minds touch when they need each other most. They can't be sure that the other boy is real. They suspect that he is not. But that doesn't mean they aren't each other's lifeline until they lose each other and then for a while longer.
