    Summary

    In the palace she’d grown up in, when Miranda said, “I’m hungry,” food bustled into the room of its own will. The sheets pulled back on her bed. She wore what she wanted. She slept when she was tired and she ate when she was hungry. She ran when she wanted to run and she was still when she wanted to be still.

    Milan was not much like that.

    Summary

    Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,
    Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,
    Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
    Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d,
    Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me,
    Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined,
    The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?

    Answer.
    That you are here—that life exists and identity,
    That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.

    -Walt Whitman

    Summary

    She looked at the modest bonfire currently crackling away full of lingerie. "I'm not sure I quite understand the purpose of this exercise."

    Terri, whose buxom bosom benefited from a bra, raised her right hand and shook it in a violent manner against the backdrop of the blaze. "We're throwing off the oppression of the patriarchy and taking control for women kind. Down with the Penis!"

    Morticia accepted the invitation of what was clearly the secret feminine cabal finally throwing aside millennium of secrecy.

    Summary

    In the Winter, the Fae slept beneath the hill. In the Spring, they lived in the flowers. In the Summer heat, they argued on the hill. In the Autumn, they scratched the sky.

    Betwixt and between, they played games in mortal's business and mortal loves.

    Summary

    "So, you're taking me to den of drugs and iniquity is what you're saying," said Lois.

    "Also, gambling," said Clark helpfully.

    Lois rolled her eyes. "I already said I'm in. You don’t have to keep sweetening the pot."

    Or how Lois spent Christmas with Clark in Smallville.

    Summary

    The very first thing that Iago said to Emelia after they were wed was, "The sun is shining very brightly in the sky."

    As this was their wedding night, she replied, "What do you mean? That is the moon and stars. It's dark out."

    Emelia didn't know to shiver then when Iago stroked her cheek and said, "No, My Love, it is the sun."

    Then again, she hardly knew the man to whom she'd been wed.

    Summary

    Ophelia had always been a fool for love and charity. For sighing over the tragic hero, Sigismund, or Lancelot, for all Father would chide her sighs and her brother, Laertes, would make fun of her.

    That her foolishness might lead to her ruin was what every lady was told. Yet how could it be so? When she loved her sweet prince loved her and Hamlet certainly made her believe he loved too.

    Summary

    Far, far, far in the future, the most popular wave of all the possible reality syncs was "Battle of the Ancient Dudes and Babes" in which historical figures from Earth's history were cloned, given super powers, and made to fight each other in gladiatorial games for the amused distraction of the masses and the enrichment of their owners.

    The most popular team was the "Ancient Space Monkey Blue", which had the benefit of a team name that none of the members objected to.

    Summary

    Isfret lived in the dry Red Land and in the moan of the wind.

    Roaming the sands when she came upon Sekhmet where she was raging. Isfret set Sekhmet to kill her sister, Ma'at, and create disorder. Isfret wanted more to live in the Black land. She wanted to live where the people were. There was little for Isfret to eat in the desert. Wickedness was her bread and her meat.

    Isfret went to where Sobek was eating a horse with his sharp teeth while mating with the nubile Queen of the Hyksos.

    Isfret choose mud over sand and this was what came of that decision.

    Summary

    Little Charles didn't remember when he became Little Charles. He didn't remember his first toddling steps towards his Dad. He didn't remember the first time his Mom sat him down in front of a TV so she could have a God Damned moment to herself. He liked Sesame Street. Everyone was nice.

    Little Charles knew the exact moment he fell in love with Ivy.

    Summary

    When Thistle was a girl, she'd loved the Fair something fierce.

    Folks came from all round the world to the Scarborough Fair.

    For on Assumption Day, the White Lady, the Queen of Air and Light, would float down to the dry well in the centre of the city of Scarborough and announce that the doors between Heaven and Earth were open for the dead of the world to ascend.

    The Lord under the Mountain, the King of Earth and Darkness would ride out of the moors and into the city with his wild court and announce a time of celebration.

    Everyone in Scarborough knew that the Lord under the Mountain loved the White Lady. Each year he rode into the city and made the thorn bush hang heavy with fruit that the White Lady would decline with a smile.

    Thistle didn't think the Lady and the Lord had much to do with her. She was right and she was wrong.

    Summary

    Once, not so very long ago, there was a University, a City on a Hill, with a Library that was a Borg Cube. (1)

    Oh, when they built this library, there was no such intention. When they built it, they built the Library as the Athens of the West. For many years, that was exactly what it was. A little quirky perhaps, but by no means full of dark terrors.

    The change came when the sheer number of books within had the Librarians praying to Thoth that they might add an addition. Some stacks as it were. Since by that era, no one was thinking classical and everyone was thinking utilitarian and modern, they built a Borg Cube attached to Athens of the West. This was when the Library's name changed in accordance with its new and terrible nature.

    Summary

    Were a gnome of earth to be imprisoned, she'd but smile and wait. The earth was made to wait and slowly shift over millennium. For a salamander of fire, no such thing would ever occur. Her rage would be so instant, so burning, she'd consume any who dared so much as look at her or else die trying. For an undine of water, she'd surge and if barred by one route, she'd seek another. Oh, water could be contained, but whether she turned into vapor, or she froze and melted to crack any surface, she'd be free again.

    Ariel was a sylph of air.

    He told himself that they were the lambs for the slaughter. He told himself that he was not the wolf. He told himself that he was the shepherd. He clung to that.
