    Summary

    Just one of Leo’s stupid jokes, and if Jason had just laughed it off--

    Then Leo wouldn’t be looking up at him like he was going to be weird about this, like maybe he thought Jason was going to start hitting on him or something, just because--

    “Brownies,” said Leo finally.

    In which Leo shares his brownie recipe, and Jason sucks at relationships.

    Summary

    "And how did you come by an Amazon Supremacy account, Mister Valdez?” He had no idea what Kinzie looked like, but he could almost see the curl in her lip when she said you. He definitely heard the pause before Mister, like she was swapping it out for a much nastier word. She had a great voice.

    Amazon Customer Service calls Leo with a few questions about his recent purchases. He gets more than he bargained for.

    Summary

    “You know, it’s a well-known scientific fact that alcohol kills brain cells," said Mary. "I’m pretty sure this isn’t going to work.”

    “Whatever, dorkface.” Lydia sat on the bed with a cheerful bounce. “Haven’t you heard that everyone has their own style of learning? And mine involves drinking, so quit oppressing me.”

    Summary

    She didn’t dare do this when Uncle Geoffrey was home--never mind that it was Ari’s room and Ari’s azi--because Uncle Geoffrey had always looked at Ari like another one of Olga Emory’s prize pigs, no different except this one owned the largest share of Reseune outright, or would when she was older.

    Only lately it had been different.

    Summary

    If they were at Starbase--If the Ku hadn’t devastated it to the point where it might be centuries before the data stored there could be accessed normally--they might have had an AnyKaat years closer to motherhood, who’d never seen her son turn away from her in confusion and fear, never set foot on Merod Schene. AnyKaat and Degas, a matched set of parents for Gemina. He wouldn’t be a ghost to her then.

    She’d be a stranger to me.

    Summary

    Toph can still feel the heat in the star-metal, and the memory of power, even in stillness. Suki’s arm feels the same.

    Summary

    The new kid nearly quivered with keenness. His voice had been scrubbed as clean of any trace of an accent as his face had been of dirt.

    Susan felt the name should have meant something to her, but she couldn’t think what. “Bill,” she ventured, “is that short for Wilhelm?”

    “No, Miss. I’m named for my godfather.”

    Death meets a poor woodcutter who's looking for a just man to be a godfather to his son. The new kid in Susan's class says he's going to be a great physician.

    The Death of Rats is just trying to do his job.

    Summary

    “A cream pie,” said Roic. “He was aiming for m’lord’s face. I took it right in the chest. My first, fanciest House uniform--”

    “Not fair!” Taura howled. “It’s supposed to be stories about saving Miles’ life, not his suits.”

    Taura and Roic swap stories about guarding Miles.

    Summary

    “Once they saw that Hen Wen was a white pig and not a golden sheep--and not even oracular any more--they put down their weapons and apologized quite nicely.” Eilonwy frowned. “Or at least that’s what they were doing as far as anyone could understand them. They might have been reciting a poem about anemones and primroses. Some people just can’t admit when they’re lost.”

    Summary

    Bad girls smoke and drink, wear short skirts and stay out late at night. There's no word for someone who brings a chicken pot pie to the trailer of a young man who doesn't have a friend in the world, and says, "I'm so sorry for your loss" when she means, "Is it true you can start fires with your mind?"

    But I swear, I never meant to hurt him.

    Summary

    "You think I should let her . . . just walk it off?" Mako frowns down at the table, and the carved whale-ivory dishes heaped with blubber cubes, sea cucumbers, and things that Mako is frankly afraid to ask what they are. Bolin likes this stuff, but Bolin will eat anything. "I do owe her an apology. I kinda messed up the last one I made."

    "And you'll mess it up again if you try in this mood. She needs to cool down, you need to cool down." Korra tosses a blubber cube into the air and catches it in her mouth. "Trust me on this one. Avatar, right?"

    How can Mako enjoy a party when Asami's run off and it's his fault? (Answer: with a little faith in his friends.)

    Summary

    Stars, as any halfway civilized being knows, are luminous spheres of plasma held together by gravity, but these weren’t. They were bears, and a hunter leading a pair of dogs, and a stream of milk from the breasts of the earth; they were memories and passions and the gods who held sway over the fates of men. It was utterly ridiculous, but the Bannus thought: Very well, I can use this.

    The Bannus has been in the Wood for a long time.
