    Summary

    They're not the same people from when they first met or even when they got married. They have grown into each other, like interlocking vines, inextricable.

    Summary

    You leave milk and bread and apples on your porch at night. (Everything magic likes milk.) Other things too, if you like, but milk and bread and apples seem to be the standby that always works. Nobody you know has ever woken up in the morning to a ransacked basket on their porch, (somehow all the other nighttime denizens know to leave it alone), but you hear things about quiet knocks on midnight doors. The glow of hot, wild magic flickering through the windows. Dark-eyed children on the doorstep with chapped lips wet with milk, looking like feral cats sleepwalking through dreams of domestication.

    When the dark-eyed children knock on your midnight door, you let them in and show them where to sleep and give them a blanket. The end of the story is always a haunted look and the words, "but I don't remember what happened to them."

    The tricky thing is that even lonely dark-eyed children grow up. Magic takes care of her own, in her own fickle way.

    Summary

    In fact, Johnny realizes, the state of Illinois hasn’t had any claim to superpowered fame since Kitty Pryde made it to the X-Men. Whatever it is in that New York City water has yet to make it westward, and so an intangible mutant from Deerfield is the full extent of how much Illinois brings itself to care.

    Johnny can’t exactly phase through walls, but at least now he knows how to climb them.
