    Summary

    So: he had fallen deeply in lust with someone, offended them, and now they were going to stab him to death. This wasn’t going to be a very heroic tale, if he lived long enough to write it down.

    Summary

    The fire licks up and down his arms. It doesn’t hurt nearly as much as he’d have expected it to-- and, though he buries the admission deep down the moment it arises in him, it doesn’t hurt as much as he wants it to. In fact, it doesn’t hurt at all. It feels warm, it tingles a bit, but it’s nothing like the searing heat that had burst out of him when he’d found Caleb.

    No, what hurts is the sight of the front door Harkness Tower. The candles burning sadly down to little puddles of wax on the steps, the photos of Caleb that are starting to curl with water damage from the last few days’ rain, the drooping bouquets, the prayers and “gone but not forgotten”s and the way Caleb’s name has been spelled out in candles that have long since melted down.

    Or: Adam gets to the tower too late.

    Summary

    The stories say that it was once wielded by a king of old to turn the tide of a great battle. That it could fell dragons with a single sweep of its blade that shone like daybreak. That it could rally the hearts of men, even when all hope had been lost. While the name of the king and the place of the battle have been forgotten, the storied Sword of Light is the last hope of Noctis Lucis Caelum, heir apparent to the crown of Insomnia. With few clues and less time, he is smuggled out of his childhood home as a centuries-old plot descends upon the city. Outside of its protective walls, Noctis meets Gladiolus, a man whom fate had tied to Noctis long before their paths crossed in the wilds of Lucis. The two agree to journey together in search of an object that may not exist on a quest that may be doomed in hopes of restoring that which may be lost forever.
    Working apart but in tandem, Ignis Scientia, trusted adviser and friend of Noctis, remains in Insomnia to search for clues about the Sword of Light and ways to aid Noctis in his quest. Ignis is joined by Prompto Argentum, a commoner and unlikely friend of Noctis, whose own abilities may be the difference in attaining their impossible goal.

    Summary

    But nothing is ever simple, is it?

    Ahem...

    The balance of the Cold War is shifting.

    In 1981, the Soviet Spy known as Perseus seeks to change the course of humanity through a radical plan of action that will lead to the death of millions, and only a select few who believe that he even exists can stop him. With time running out, CIA Agent Russell Adler and his elite special forces team must uncover Perseus’ master plan and stop him before it’s too late.

    Which would be easier to do if his so-called “elite special forces team” didn’t consist entirely of people who really should be in therapy. Or jail. Or both. And if they weren’t held together by a common desire to kill things, save the world, get paid and get laid, and being jacked up on enough hormones to give High School Musical a run for it's money.

    Or, in which COD: BOCW gets a remix laced with crack and anachronistic pop-culture references, courtesy of someone improvising the whole damn thing.

    Summary

    Though Steve had been through the deep dark woods to visit the Scarlet Witch many times, this time he encountered a big bad wolf. A cold wind swept up, and a chill ran down Steve’s back.

    Perhaps if our hero were slightly less of an idiot, he would have noted said chill and run away. But that would make our story quite short. There is a reason people smart enough to run away from danger are not the subject of grand stories. (Coincidentally, they do often live longer lives.) Steve, shouldering the burden of narrative conflict, chose not to run away, but instead set his basket of magic apples down and raised his fists.

    Or: A fairy tale about a young apple-picker and the mysterious wolf that protects his magic apple tree.

    Summary

    Fifteen men on a dead man's chest
    Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

    So sang Billy Bones inside the Admiral Zheng He Tavern.

    For over a year, Bones scours the Thames with his spy glass, returns, and loudly croons that briny song by the fire. Everyday he tells stories about dangerous yet thrilling adventures with the most dastardly sea devils you would've dread to encounter.

    Everyday the quick-witted Hua Cheng receives a shiny piece of eight for his duties as the aging sailor's lookout for "the silver shackled pirate".

    Since childhood, Hua Cheng dreams of traveling beyond this mundane life to find something better. Far better than a life of table busting or street hustles to payback the headstrong innkeeper and her irksome husband.

    Until one day, the promise of faraway lands, a grand journey across the frothy deep blue sea, and his most treasured encounter, stumbles its way into Hua Cheng's adolescent life.

    Most of the chapter titles are references to the Muppet Treasure Island Soundtrack

    Summary

    Something is different, after Hamlet, and the change is as subtle as a roaring lion. Aziraphale regards him with palpable fondness, and, ever a serpent, Crowley lays him down and basks him in the warmth of that regard.

    Summary

    Releasing her hand as gently as he’d taken it, Aleksander collected the little envelope of powder and pulled the sheets up higher over her thighs before stepping back from the bed. “You should rest now, Miss Starkov. Take some time to think over my proposal. I won’t lie to you. It will be a dangerous and difficult job, but if you’re still looking for something — and someone — to push your abilities into new territory, then I think this just may be the right opportunity for you.”

    Summary

    Oh, Maker, have you ever loved?
    Or known just what it was?
    I can't imagine the bitter end
    Of all this beauty that we're living in.

    -"Oh, Maker", Janelle Monae

    "The humans are strange and graceful as they explore the garden, explore themselves, explore each other. The trouble is, the humans stare back, which makes him uncomfortable; there’s nothing particularly interesting about him. And, though he rarely admits it to himself, the humans make him lonely; he has no Other to explore."

    Summary

    She smiles when he approaches her, linking her arm in his, and he knows her gift changes nothing, really. He loves her more than he thinks is possible. The idea of her being so gifted is something to marvel over, it doesn’t make her more of a prize.

    Not to him.
