    Summary

    SOME OF OUR MORE IMAGINATIVE READERS INFORM US that the events of the past few days -- the grisly deaths, the tragic fire, the flying carriage that caused the egregious delays on the Metropolitan and District Railway -- are attributable to the fevered pursuit of a Chinese vampire, known in its native land as a jiang shi, by the adventuress detective Madame Vastra. These readers, whose persistent letters are beginning to become tiresome, claim that this is but one of many times Madame Vastra's unravelling of a mystery has saved all of an unknowing London.

    We advise these peculiar devotees that we have yet again sought an audience with Madame Vastra, who, as ever, politely declines comment on any of the wilder rumors in circulation, but wishes it known that any unusual cases requiring investigation may be brought to her attention care of this newspaper.

    Summary

    She worried about Cassian when he was still alive. She wondered what a man like him would do when the Rebellion was over. What would he have to live for? Apparently she was right to worry. Not even death can keep him away. And the others? Well, in her weaker, more sentimental moments, she likes to think that they stay for him.

    Summary

    I love you like rlb has become a well-known, accepted and valuable component of American vernacular. The meaning of the letters 'rlb' is unknown, but is uniformly considered to be a statement of a great romantic love, commitment and sacrifice.

     

    It was Dernier as first said it. Steve never imagined that something like that could have survived the war and all the years in between.

    In which Tony goes insane trying to figure out why that phrase affects the Cap so much, Bucky teases the press, and Steve and Bucky love each other like rlb.

    Summary

    Finn and Rey can feel the kinship between them; they also feel an inexplicable attraction to Poe Dameron. (Over and beyond the perfectly explicable attraction of his stupid beautiful face, that is.) Poe thinks they're wonderful but is slightly dubious about mystical soulbonds.

    Summary

    “It might be better for you to die,” Obi-Wan muses as she holds her children in her arms. Padmé looks up at him and arches an eyebrow.

    “I didn’t mean literally,” he clarifies.

    “I know what you meant. I’m thinking about it.”

    Padmé survives childbirth, dies as far as the rest of the galaxy is concerned, takes her children with Obi-Wan, and runs.

    Pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow.

    Summary

    “Why did you think I wouldn’t like you for being gay?” Steve asks gently.

    “You’re Captain America.” Eli’s got his teeth clenched and is resolutely looking ahead. “You stand for truth and justice and the American way. You stand for American morals. You stand for…” he shrugs awkwardly. “Not people like me.”

    Steve blows the air out of his cheeks slowly, trying to figure out how to keep the anger out of his voice so Eli doesn’t think it’s at him.

    Or, Steve comes to terms with his new world, and gains some children in the process.
