    Summary

    Encanto had been a safe haven created by a miracle in order to protect the Madrigals and their people. For decades, the tall mountains that guarded their home shielded them away from all the horrors waiting outside; no one to enter, no one to leave. Encanto was the Madrigal's home as it had saved Abuela and her children from meeting the same fate Abuelo Pedro did when he sacrificed his life in order to give his family another chance. They had everything they needed within their Encanto, and after the family had decided to better themselves for the sake of their happiness, all was good. But Isabela felt like there was something missing. She felt suffocated in the small town she lived in; thankful for all it's done for her and her family, but unable to shake the feeling of wanting something more. But everyone knew that it was impossible to leave Encanto, the same way it was impossible to enter it. So when Isabela comes across a strange girl from outside of Encanto with knowledge of a world full of wonders her mind couldn't comprehend, she is made to choose between protecting her family and the home they have built, and being with the girl who changed her entire life by offering her the world in the palm of her hands.

    Summary

    When the stranger waltzed into that cozy little town with a chip on his shoulder and a half-dead cigarette, no one was expecting the tornado of hidden memories and unsaid words to trail behind him.

    People like them well...

    they expected a bit more decorum.

    Especially since the sheriff hadn't seen this man since 1958.

    Courfeyrac is an up-and-coming journalist who can't quite seem to get up-and-coming;

    Summary

    The lights inside are soft at a glance, but light the room completely. Every inch is in color as if it’s daytime. It’s made for people to be seen in. There are plenty of swing skirts dotted with flower prints, heels and pearls and headbands. Or neat collars and ties and dapper coats. There’s just no men in the room. Catra sees her waiting alone at a table: a woman with sunny hair cascading down her back, the same sharp features and bright blue eyes. Her vest sits on the rail of her chair. She’s left in a loose white shirt, half unbuttoned in the June heat.

    There’s no mistaking the stranger from the other night. Catra’s heart flutters. Oh, that’s why you were different.

    Summary

    “Come on, think about it,” Minhyuk whines. “Master Yoo is a living legend, the most renowned pansori singer in Korea, yet all we really know about him is that he has no living family, partners or children, and now you’re telling me that he knew of this young, male playwright who died suddenly in the prime of his life? I sense something very interesting behind all of this.”

    “Aren’t you supposed to be a historian?” Jooheon says quickly. “Shouldn’t you be studying historical events that actually happened and not be engaging in this mindless gossip?”

    “My dearest Jooheon,” Minhyuk smiles and closes the book in his hands. “History is nothing but gossip.”

    Summary

    Graham looked Hannibal up and down, uncertain. Hannibal knew what he looked like; skin and bones, death warmed up, a tall mass of atrophied muscles and ribs and gaunt lines. He knew that his head looked atrocious shaved, that his teeth had hardly been brushed for years, that he had none of his cultured garments, that his voice was rough and horrible. Gone were the days of a smooth, rich accent that had his colleagues swooning and the respect of Italy's high society. Now, he only had his charm.

    Hannibal could smell the death on the air. An agonized scream pierced the fragile calm, prompting Hannibal to slowly turn his head (nothing fast, nothing abrupt, his head would fall from his shoulders). "I suppose that's your cue, Mr. Graham." Hannibal offered the man a real smile, then, crinkling the corners of his eyes and hurting his face in a way it hadn't been hurt for over five years. "Duty calls."

    Her breath catches in her throat like a burr, tense and ticklish and impossible to swallow. She has no idea how to react to this curious man, who touches her face so gently and uses such intimate little names for her, a girl he barely knows.

    “Well… maybe just a— a half a drink more.”

    He breaks into a grin.

    Summary

    “...engaged?” Patsy echoed without much enthusiasm.

    “To be married?” Harry added, his doubtful expression quickly morphing into a forced smile when their father shot him a glare.

    John swallowed, his mouth dry and still a little fuzzy from the hangover he had woken with after his stupid stint with the wine yesterday.

    -

    John is engaged, and he's supposed to be happy, but... it's hard to smile when you're dying, no matter how often you're told that you should.
