    Summary

    Strange motels and high-roller suites, natural and unnatural wonders, learning too much about your companions’ biological quirks, meeting new people (and some very old people), wrestling with moral quandaries, ingrained habits, and also an alligator, finding your way and losing your grip and finding each other…

    Summary

    Under the scorching desert sun, Shiro picks up a hitchhiker who ends up saving his life— and claims to know him.


    “Getting away seemed like a good idea,” Shiro replies simply. It’s the standard answer he’s given to anyone that’s asked, and most people write it off as some sort of spiritual journey. Shiro knows he’s not trying to find himself in a grimy gas station or on heat-warped roads, but it’s a lot easier than explaining that he just had an impulse.

    “Yeah?” Keith turns his head lazily towards Shiro and raises an eyebrow. “From what?”

    Summary

    It's 2005, 2 years post-Chosen (not comic canon). Buffy and the Scoobies have established a school and training academy in Charleston SC for the newly-called slayers. Faith has been part of it all, loyally beside them in the background, but she is ready for a change and to go back out on her own. The sudden separation makes Buffy feel ways that she isn't prepared for, so she seeks the help of an old friend. Both slayers will have to travel the country to find their way.
    Several road trips and brief homages to American cities and towns.

    Summary

    Seven years have passed since Otabek Altin and Yuri Plisetsky fled from the gang culture of their home town.

    Now, the Skins, the Angels, and the other gangs more or less work together to repair the damage that their violence wrought.

    But this peace is fragile, and when Otabek returns to town in disguise for the tourist-trap carnival "Volcano Sunday", a new sort of madness explodes.

    Summary

    In Bono, Alabama, a southern town where nobody ever goes, Neil Josten is a blind boy who used to read and write stories. Now he tells them aloud for his friend to write down, but things are quick to turn bland where there’s no color to see. He finds comfort in religion, thinking God can give him his eyes.

    Then Andrew Minyard arrives in town in a dusty Impala and a crumpled suit, claiming he’s there to help Renee Walker take care of the church after the local priest’s death. Everyone soon starts wondering what his motives are and why he’d exile himself to a dead-end like theirs, mistrusting every word—but they’re after the wrong threat. Disillusioned and disappointed by religion, this lonely man of God came for a greater mission than preaching and blessing. He’s after something, and he might have just found it.

    The blind boy of the town will either be his salvation or damnation, and he’s not sure which one yet.
