    Summary

    A set of short pieces set in the Turningverse that cover the eighteen years post-"Winter Sun" that lead up to the final story, which will be called "Any Dream." Some are vignettes and some are short stories, but each is only one scene, and they're in chronological order. Ultimately, this will consist of a total of eighteen pieces covering a total of eighteen years, but it won't be one piece per year (what can I say; some years are more eventful than others!). (Takes place between August 2003 and March 2021.)

    Summary

    There is no way not to be excited
    When what you have been disillusioned by raises its head
    From its arms and seems to want to talk to you again.
    You forget home and family
    And set off on foot or in your automobile
    And go to where you believe this form of reality
    May dwell.
    -- Kenneth Koch, from "Paradiso"
    (Takes place from October to December 1997.)

    Summary

    A Turning-universe retelling of the events of the episode "100,000 Airplanes," replacing Sorkin's Lisa Sherborne with my Lisa Seppala, and dealing with all of the changes that necessarily follow from that. So technically it's an AU, but it follows canon in nearly every way, and when it doesn't, it parallels it. (Takes place in January 2002.)

    Summary

    This story was inspired by the flashback scenes in "In the Shadow of Two Gunmen", and it stands as my own creative stab at explaining how Josh and Sam knew each other and the look on Josh's face when Sam said he was about to marry "Lisa" in 1997. First person, Sam's point of view. (Takes place from November 1985 to May 1986.)
