    Summary

    It was Sidney's first trip outside North America; being so far away from his usual routines, the unreality of being on a completely different continent, made Sidney feel bigger, lit up from the inside, like everyone would be able to see through his skin if they looked.

    And Marc looked. He was always looking. Sidney knew because he was always looking back.

    There was a sharp and bitter edge crept into the words, a reminder that not all was well: that Thor still had a brother, but not a friend.

    Summary

    It was never easy to find Loki when he wanted to hide, but he wasn't doing a particularly good job of it at the moment. Probably he didn't think anyone from Asgard would be wasting their time hunting for him while the shining ones churned their way steadily through all the realm.

    Summary

    Two evenings a week, Adam whiled away his lonesome hours at a mechanic shop specializing in foreign cars. He spent a few hours on easy freelance computer projects handed out by approving professors and professional contacts. Every other hour of the week was dedicated to classes, seminars, and school work, a schedule carefully carried out by hands that were used to maneuvering each grain of time in the hourglass with tweezers.

    But, as uncomplicatedly as possible, the weekends were for Ronan.

    Summary

    Falling for Ronan had felt like going to speak at the same time as someone else after a long silence, two people bumbling over their words to say, no, sorry, go ahead about three times before one of them says what they were going to say.

    Summary

    It begins on a ship much like any ship. Imperial, overheated, crashing. Cassian rescues him, but he doesn't know it until later. He rescues K-2SO before there is a K-2SO, when he is a model number, a locus on a network, before he has become himself.

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    Summary

    When he sees him for the first time, after the beach, Chirrut is still grinning, beatific, pale blue fingers outstretched to a colony of small, horned children, offering to tell them their futures in exchange for valuables he can no longer collect, scattering Koans about the Force like pennies into a bowl.

    “I think I’m a ghost savant,” Marc-André said under his breath, the day after they met. “I’m the Cesar Millan of ghosts. I’m a ghost whisperer.”
    “Wasn’t that a shitty television show?” Kris said. “And no you’re fucking not; anyone can talk to me. I’m dead, not deaf.”

    Summary

    Nicklas had been going to visit demons ever since he had taken his vows at nineteen, two weeks after his mother had opened her eyes one cold winter morning and seen the face of God. She had been dreaming of Him for months, and then, finally, like the sun rising, she had woken to meet the Lord Himself. Nicklas had woken an hour later to find his mother standing outside, her hands raised to the sky and the trees around her bowed down like courtiers in the presence of a king.

    It had been a formative experience.

    Nicklas could not make the oaks kneel, but he could talk to God as well as the next man, and if he brought up the right topics, God had a way of listening.

    Sasha had been going to visit demons ever since Nicklas had found him with claws and in chains so long ago, and if God did not listen to him, it was not for lack of encouragement to the Lord on Nicklas’s part.

    --

    A fairytale of romance, monsters, and worship.
