                                             or those
    moments—like earthquakes—when what
    matters most is, suddenly, location;

    when the words of least value, because
    also the most used, come down to help and
    where are you—

    Billet-Doux, Carl Phillips

    Summary

    For Terry, it was a falcon. A dark, oversized, absolutely majestic bird landed led him to the farmers’ market, where he bumped into Sharon, also in line to buy locally-sourced honey. For Charles, it was a dog, a mutt that dragged him to an exotic food truck he’d been in search of for almost a year, where Genevieve was doling out Latvian frikadelu zipa. For Gina, it was a panther, large and sleek, that accompanied her to watch a dark, curly mane of hair win a motorcycle race for which her love was the prize.

    Given these experiences, Jake is fully prepared for a majestic, dignified lone wolf. Obviously, it would be large enough for him to ride like a horse straight to Diamond Point Yacht Club, where a gorgeous speedboat model would be lounging in the sun, her own wolf napping beside her.

    These expectations are why, when a goose lands in his passenger seat on a mundane overcast Monday morning, Jake’s first emotion is annoyance.

    Summary

    “Sleep now, and dream, and perhaps you will learn something. This is the river Taliesin came out of, you know, and I spent a night beside it when I was about your age.”

    Where does a bard's inspiration come from? A tale of tradition, transformation and snarky early 20th century academics.

    Leslie nods. "Please. Ann…" She stops, then softens. "Beautiful, beautiful Ann. I just... you know, I said I dreamed of sitting in the Oval Office, of making things better for everyone, you know? But I just…" She falters. "I just voted for myself to be president of the United States. I did it, Ann. We did it. It's done."

    okay so this fic is just an absolutely amazing piece of writing.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Rory’s never been more sure of anything in her life. Other than the fact that when someone knows everything bad about you as well as the good and still loves you, it’s real.

    Or at least a good place to start again."

    this makes me so happy
