    Summary

    While on her way through the haunted greywoods after escaping a rather angry lordling, mercenary Halethe Longstrider stumbles across a gaunt, frightened runaway in an old ruin. He's not the worst thing she could have stumbled across, though. At least he isn't a haunt.

    Summary

    They were supposed to go quiet, leave the heroing to people better suited to it. They left too many bodies behind them. They needed to stop before some cop or some daylight hero started taking proper interest. But one night Ellie Lime comes up to Mona Rambeau with a missing friend and a bloodstained necklace in her hand. There's been murders lately. There's been bodies. Maybe there's still some work left for the Night Shift to do.

    Dark urban fantasy/superhero noir.

    Summary

    Post-movie. When Detective Steven Grant is injured on the job yet again, neither his partner nor his girlfriend take it well, and maybe for more similar reasons than he thought. Beyond the fact that they're immortal and he's not, it turns out that Aaron's feelings are closer to Lucy's than Steve imagined. And, just maybe, they can find a way to work with that.

    Summary

    Cordelia needed to talk to Simon. He'd had that expression of his for some weeks, worried and hesitant, that said he had something to tell her, something he wasn't sure he should. She had a few questions of her own first, a few fears, and those aside she hadn't expected this, of all things. Not from Simon. Not from anyone.

    Set just after the end of Barrayar, a few months after Miles' birth, and follows from Imperfect Equilibrium. Simon tells Cordelia about his abilities. Not entirely voluntarily.

    Summary

    He'd read somewhere -he had a horrible suspicion it had been an interrogation manual- that smell was the sense most directly encoded with memory. Zeb had a very distinct smell, and it was weighted with a great deal more than memory.

    Summary

    Insanity was not the only side effect of the memory chip, though Simon doesn't entirely discount that that's what this is. He keeps it secret, either way. Empathy or insanity, neither are weaknesses he's sure he can afford. It helps keep him alive, either way, and perhaps at some point he'll last long enough for it not to be a weakness at all.

    Vaguely Shards of Honor era AU where the installation of the chip gives Simon minor psychic abilities. More than his usual, I mean.
