    Summary

    "Three shards of pottery, and a deep, thick shroud, are required on occasions such as these. To conceal the eyes, the mouth, the mirror." ⸻

    The brightest generation of the V.F.D. were born under decaying stars; the previous generation had made this organization noble, but the secret of that nobility was lost in translation. This generation of young volunteers have always had one foot out the door, but these coming years will make them question whether the organization was ever good to begin with, whether their friends and associates could ever have been trusted, and whether the desperation not to be alone or the desperation to serve "the better good" is greater.

    It may also teach them what resides at the bottom of a not-quite ocean, and how that great unknown shaped the organization we known today.

    (A complex pre-ASOUE look into V.F.D., some headcanons about events of the time period, and a mess of unhealthy relationships I do not condone or believe should be aspired to.)

    Summary

    I am tired of tears and laughter,
    And men that laugh and weep;
    Of what may come hereafter
    ...
    And everything but sleep.
    -Algernon Charles Swinburne, "The Garden of Proserpine"

Decades later, Beatrice Baudelaire washes ashore in Stain'd-by-the-Sea in pursuit of her adopted siblings. Sometimes, they discover, family is not a thing that can be easily defined.

    Summary

    “You’re the second most trustworthy person I know,” I said. I was smiling as I said it. It wasn’t an answer, not really, but I didn’t think she really meant the question. Did we trust each other? At almost fifteen, we’d proven it enough times for me to take it for granted.

    “Thanks,” Beatrice said, rolling her eyes.

    Post-ATWQ, pre-ASOUE; Lemony, Beatrice, and things you definitely shouldn't try at home.
